    Quantum Interaction Approach in Cognition, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

    Full text link
    The mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics has been successfully employed in the last years to model situations in which the use of classical structures gives rise to problematical situations, and where typically quantum effects, such as 'contextuality' and 'entanglement', have been recognized. This 'Quantum Interaction Approach' is briefly reviewed in this paper focusing, in particular, on the quantum models that have been elaborated to describe how concepts combine in cognitive science, and on the ensuing identification of a quantum structure in human thought. We point out that these results provide interesting insights toward the development of a unified theory for meaning and knowledge formalization and representation. Then, we analyze the technological aspects and implications of our approach, and a particular attention is devoted to the connections with symbolic artificial intelligence, quantum computation and robotics.Comment: 10 page

    The article discusses the main trends in the development of artificial intelligence systems and robotics (AI&R). The main question that is considered in this context is whether artificial systems are going to become more and more anthropomorphic, both intellectually and physically. In the current article, the author analyzes the current state and prospects of technological development of artificial intelligence and robotics, and also determines the main aspects of the impact of these technologies on society and economy, indicating the geopolitical strategic nature of this influence. The author considers various approaches to the definition of artificial intelligence and robotics, focusing on the subject-oriented and functional ones. It also compares AI&R abilities and human abilities in areas such as categorization, pattern recognition, planning and decision making, etc. Based on this comparison, we investigate in which areas AI&R’s performance is inferior to a human, and in which cases it is superior to one. The modern achievements in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence create the necessary basis for further discussion of the applicability of goal setting in engineering, in the form of a Turing test. It is shown that development of AI&R is associated with certain contradictions that impede the application of Turing’s methodology in its usual format. The basic contradictions in the development of AI&R technologies imply that there is to be a transition to a post-Turing methodology for assessing engineering implementations of artificial intelligence and robotics. In such implementations, on the one hand, the ‘Turing wall’ is removed, and on the other hand, artificial intelligence gets its physical implementation

    This contribution aims to focus attention on the research that the working group of the Department of Educational Sciences of the University of Bologna is developing in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (AIR). In particular, the research group is developing two lines: AIR for Learning with a focus on learning processes and levels of personalization supported by AI and ER; Learning for AIR with a focus on AI and Robotics education and the need to integrate the school curriculum

    Study of eddy current probes

    Get PDF
    The recognition of materials properties still presents a number of problems for nondestructive testing in aerospace systems. This project attempts to utilize current capabilities in eddy current instrumentation, artificial intelligence, and robotics in order to provide insight into defining geometrical aspects of flaws in composite materials which are capable of being evaluated using eddy current inspection techniques

    A Survey on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

    Today many multi-national companies or organizations are adopting the use of automation. Automation means replacing the human by intelligent robots or machines which are capable to work as human (may be better than human). Artificial intelligence is a way of making machines, robots or software to think like human. As the concept of artificial intelligence is use in robotics, it is necessary to understand the basic functions which are required for robots to think and work like human. These functions are planning, acting, monitoring, perceiving and goal reasoning. These functions help robots to develop its skills and implement it. Since robotics is a rapidly growing field from last decade, it is important to learn and improve the basic functionality of robots and make it more useful and user-friendly

    The ethical implications of developing and using artificial intelligence and robotics in the civilian and military spheres

    Get PDF
    Machine-mediated human interaction challenges the philosophical basis of human existence and ethical conduct. Aside from technical challenges of ensuring ethical conduct in artificial intelligence and robotics, there are moral questions about the desirability of replacing human functions and the human mind with such technology. How will artificial intelligence and robotics engage in moral reasoning in order to act ethically? Is there a need for a new set of moral rules? What happens to human interaction when it is mediated by technology? Should such technology be used to end human life? Who bears responsibility for wrongdoing or harmful conduct by artificial intelligence and robotics? This paper seeks to address some ethical issues surrounding the development and use of artificial intelligence and robotics in the civilian and military spheres. It explores the implications of fully autonomous and human-machine rule-generating approaches, the difference between “human will” and “machine will, and between machine logic and human judgment
