A Platform for process modeling, diagnosis and reconfiguration Print E-mail
Written by Manuel Rodriguez   
Monday, 08 May 2006
Towards an Integrated Information Platform for the formulation, fault diagnosis and reconfiguration of processes.

In order to have an autonomous system (or at least semi-autonomous) some ingredients are necessary. The first one is information or knowledge. And the second one is how to use that information to allow the self-diagnosis, and self-reconfiguration of a system. In this seminar an overview of different information sources (data modelling, ontologies, libraries, ... regarding to process systems) is initially presented. After some methodologies that use information to pursue a target are commented.

Finally a devised draft proposal of an architecture to integrate "information & use" is commented. The purpose of the seminar is to open a discussion on how to approach a methodology that (using what's already available) can be generic enough to be applied to the generation of autonomous systems.

Epistemology, knowledge and action Print E-mail
Written by Ricardo Sanz   
Tuesday, 21 March 2006

This is a seminar on the nature of knowledge.

The Wikipedia says that knowledge is information of which someone is aware and that knowledge is also used to mean the confident understanding of a subject, potentially with the ability to use it for a specific purpose.

In the context of autonomous systems, this old-age question has to go to the very ground: what is this that enables a system to act properly?

Construyendo la Máquina Consciente Print E-mail
Written by Ricardo Sanz   
Wednesday, 25 January 2006

Desde el inicio de la Inteligencia Artificial -o incluso antes- se persigue la construción de máquinas que sean semejantes a los humanos, en cierta medida, personas artificiales.

Una justiificacion de esta investigacion se puede encontrar aqui.

Searle's Chinese Room Print E-mail
Written by Jaime Gómez   
Tuesday, 24 January 2006

The Chinese Room is a mental experiment proposed by the american philosopher John Searle to highlight weaknesses of the classic artificial intelligence research program.

This mental experiment focus on the issues related to the process of language understanding, questioning the possibility of real understanding by the machines postulated by AI.

Searle first formulated this problem in his now classic paper "Minds, brains and programs" that was published in 1980 (link) in the journal Behavioral and Brain Sciences.

Ever since, it has been a mainstay of debate over the possibility of what Searle called strong artificial intelligence, i.e.the possibility of building machines that not only seem to think like us but indeed do.

The Chinese Room argument can be stated in four steps:

i. Programs are syntactical

ii. Minds have semantic concepts

iii. Syntax is not sufficient for semantics

iiii.Therefore, programs are not minds.

Searle's conclusion is that the intelligent machines postulated by AI are just mindless manipulators of symbols, just as the man in the room is - and they don't understand what they're 'saying', just as he doesn't.
