2  Morphological computing as self-organisation of a cognizing intelligent agent

 

Gordana Dodig-Crnkovic, Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg & Mälardalen University, Sweden

Firstly, all intelligent agents were conceived as living cognitive beings, almost always as humans. Today even computational and robotic cognitive systems are developed with certain degree of cognition. Intelligence can be seen as a capacity based on cognition and it is applied for problem solving and learning adaptive behaviours within an environment or a context. I will give a short account of my view of the process of agent’s self-organisation and consequent reality construction through morphological computation, within the framework of info-computational constructivism as generative modelling scheme (Dodig-Crnkovic 2014a, 2014b, 2016).

Cognition in this framework is capacity possessed in different forms and degrees of complexity by every living organism and the same framework can be applied to artificial agents. Even a single cell while alive constantly cognizes, that is registers inputs from the world and its own body, ensures its own continuous existence through metabolism and food hunting while avoiding dangers that could cause its disintegration or damage, at the same time adapting its own morphology to the environmental constraints. The entirety of physico-chemical processes in an intelligent cognizing agent depends on the morphology (form and structure) of the organism. The essential property of morphological computing is that it is defined on a structure of nodes (agents) that exchange (communicate) information.

6 Information, Knowledge, Intelligence, Practice and Human Ambition as God’s love knot

Kun Wu,Xi'an Jiaotong University International Center for Philosophy of Information,Xi’an 710049, China

In human beings’ basic knowledge paradigm, the world view characterized by absolute segmentation between matter and spirit has directly engendered the increasing isolation of philosophy and science. With the discovery of information world, this old-fashioned situation has been changed. And the information world also becomes a bridge combining the matter world and the spirit world, as well as unifying all areas of human knowledge domain.

The universal character of information world lays the basis for the unity of information science and philosophy of information. There exists no legitimacy for the separation between philosophy and science in the unified information science. In China, the research of information science and philosophy of information exhibits the characteristic of integrating the study of science and philosophy in a mutually integrated, comprehensive and unified fashion.
    Information is the indirect existence of world, compared with the matter world of direct existence. Knowledge refers to the collection of systematic information, generated in the process and creation of information by epistemic subjects through perception and thought. And subjects with perceiving and practicing ability apply a dynamic approach and method, namely the intelligence, to grasp, process, create, develop, use and implement information (including knowledge). Practice is not a pure physical activity, but a realization process of subject’s intentional information in objects through implementing planned information.
    Of human activities, information, knowledge, intelligence and practice has a unified holographic nature. The for-self activity of information, information intuitive recognition, information memory storage, creation of information subject and the social implementation of subject’s information, from lower level to higher level, are the five basic levels of subjects’ information activities. Intelligent development of human’s information activities follows two directions: one is the progressive intelligent construction from lower level to higher level, and the other is the intelligent holographic control, comprehensive participation and mutual transformation from higher level to lower level.
    There are always certain kinds of the God’s love knot in human beings to pursue perfect intelligence in the development of philosophy and science (including artificial intelligence). People with the God’s love knot tend to pursue prefect idealization, unlimited eternality and absolute ultimacy, which is a thinking paradigm with simplified and polarized tone. For positive effect, this thinking paradigm guides people to constantly pursue beauty and perfection in both theory and practice areas. But its limitation is also quite obvious, for the reason that the existence and evolution of the world is not just a calculating machine of numbers, but rather quite complicated and full of uncertainties and randomness intertwined within multi-dimensions, levels and directions.
    Weapons and machines are man-made and also controlled by human beings. We can apply these products for our own benefit, or to harm and destroy ourselves. The key lying here is the opposition of people to people, rather than that of people to instruments of death, war or intelligent machines. The only way to avoid self-destruction of human race is to establish a democratic, free and harmonious social civilized system. Living on the earth flooded by absolutism and extremism, to avert human beings’ catastrophe does not merely depend on whether we could manufacture the so-called "intelligent machines exceeding human’s intelligence".

7 Co-creation of value in Innovation

Lorna Uden, Faculty of Computing Engineering and Sciences,Staffordshire University,College Road
Stoke-on-Trent,Staffordshire ST4 2DE,UK

In today’s changing economy, businesses need to continuously reinvent themselves in order to adapt to increasingly complex and dynamic market realities. Organizations, including governments, are under intense pressure to create value. There is limit to value creation through efficiency in existing operations. Value creation is a collaborative process and is always co-created. A new approach to intelligence innovation is needed if the needs of the users are to be satisfied. Co-Creation is a new paradigm of strategy innovation. This paper describes the importance of co-creation of value for intelligence innovation. This model can also be used effectively to promote research in intelligence science due to the interdisciplinary nature of the subject.

8 Quantum Information and Its Cognitive Meaning 

 Guolin Wu, Research Center for Philosophy of Science and Technology,South China University of Technology,China

The cognition science is one of the disciplines which develop rapidly, but it has not included features of quantum mechanics into its reaches by now. Quantum information theory based on quantum mechanics has risen since the 1990s; it also brings inspirations to the cognition science. Quantum information is the information that is based on quantum mechanics and different from classic information. Quantum information is superposed, coherent, no-cloning and no-deleting. Quantum computing is different from classic computing, truly paralleling and whole, and it has the power beyond classic computing and overcomes the classic complexity. The past conclusions related with cognition mainly result from classic computing thinking.

Quantum information, quantum entanglement and quantum computing have an important influence on the cognition problems such as Chinese Room, connectionism and the entanglement of cognition and so on. The formal syntax or rules are objective, with real content, not purely formal or syntactic. There is the smallest information unit of cognition from the quantum information. Quantum information must rely on quantum objects or quantum reality, and this means that quantum information is related with contexts of quantum objects. There is the similarity between Minimum of quantum information and information encapsulation of perception. Some of the cognitive information processing may be non-local. human cognition has non-locality, human thinking is sometimes here, sometimes there, sometimes between each other, or appear in both at the same time, our imagination is of quantum non-locality, just a flash of thought is possible to imagine the edge of the universe, but when it comes to logic reasoning whose speed is definitely slower than the speed of light.

9 INTELLIGENCE SCIENCE AND INTELLIGENCE PHILOSOPHY: ANOTHER CONVERGENCE?

 Joseph E. Brenner, International Center for the Philosophy of Information, Xi’An, P. R. China

Intelligence is perhaps best described as a capacity for moral as well as material survival. Intelligence Science is a developing body of knowledge that has a unique philosophical dimension, since intelligence is above all a human phenomenon. In previous work, I have discussed the relation of Information Science to and Philosophy. As noted by Wu Kun, the convergence of Information Science and Information Philosophy is becoming more and more apparent, toward a unified Science-Philosophy of Information. Perhaps even more than the latter, Intelligence Science challenges the relative role of metaphysics and phenomenology in their implications for the society and the emergence of an Intelligence Philosophy. We thus can already, in its earliest stages, see Intelligence Science in its most theoretical as well as practical aspects as a ‘Science-Philosophy’ resulting from the convergence of the scientific and philosophical characteristics of intelligence, where intelligence is the conjunction of pragmatic and social capability defined above.

10 Noetic Science and Similarity 

Guangjian Zhang,  Study Science Research Center, Southeast University, Nanjing, China

Similarity theory is one of the theories of noeticscience. Its purpose is to study the similar movement, similarity relation and similarity creation law which exist in the natural, social and thought domain. Therefore, it has epistemological and methodological significance.  Similarity = same + variation. No similarity, there is no movement of nature, there is no contact, there is no creativity. The progress of science and technology, the natural world is absolutely the same thing with the variation of the decision

11 Attribute Topos Machine Induced by the Law of Unity of Opposites and Its Application

 Jiali Feng, College of Information Engineering, Shanghai Maritime University, Shanghai, China

The Turing problem: "Can Machines Thinks?" not only involves the basic contradiction between "spirit" and "substance" in philosophy, but also induces a chain of secondary contradictions, such that the law of the mutual movement, development and transformation between a pair of contradict u and v,i.e. so-called "law of unity of opposites and dialectic transformation" becomes the core subject that must be studied in Noetic Science, Artificial Intelligence and Theory of Meta Synthetic Wisdom.

Base on the follow facts, the space-time position of u, x_t (u)=x_i (u)+△x(△t)(t=i+△t)not only is the character showing the existence of the object u is there, but also a measurable physical quantity varying with time change △t, and as well as the representable attribute of quality of u≠v, noted q_v (u) (or q(u)), when the equivalent relationship " u≠v ⟺x_t (u)≠y_t (v)" is occurring, the transformation mechanisms during the movement of object u from x_i (u) to y_t (v) the position of the opposite object v, and a non-essential changes q_j (u) of u is being have when it at the position x_j (u), and u conversion into its contradictory objects v at the point x_T (u)(≈y_T (v)) are studied. It is show that the mechanisms induce a sire of Mathematical construction such as Qualitative Mapping, the Attribute Categories and Attribute Topos Machine, the Evaluation and Decision based on Analysis of Attribute Coordination System and so on.

Universal logic is the field of logic that studies the common features of all logical systems, aiming to be to logic what universal algebra is to algebra. A number of approaches to universal logic have been proposed since the twentieth century, using model-theoretic and categorical approaches. The roots of universal logic may go as far back as some work of Alfred Tarski in the early twentieth century, but the modern notion was first presented in the 1990s by Swiss logician Jean-Yves Béziau

15 Intelligence and the Information Flow:
An Evolutionary Perspective

 Pedro C. Marijuán, Bioinformation and Systems Biology Group,Aragon Institute of Health Sciences (IACS—IIS Aragon), 50009 Zaragoza, Spain

In today’s scientific word there seems to be a window of opportunity for attempting the synthesis of a new field devoted to intelligence—Intelligence Science. Actually, some of the most interesting synthetic disciplinary attempts of last century have directly or indirectly concerned intelligence: such is the case of psychology, behavioral science, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, artificial life, complexity science... That they did not plainly succeed –to state it prudently– is manifest. And that accumulation of relative failures may be taken both as a stimulus for attempting a new synthesis from new vantage points and as a call to prudence. In any event, it won’t be an easy enterprise.

In the opinion of this author, a conspicuous absence in those previous attempts concerned the evolutionary dimension (as anthropocentrism and computer-centrism were strongly dominating), and also the relatively narrow conceptions of information involved (either Shannonian, or thermodynamic, or formal-logical). Herein we will intertwine both missing aspects: evolution of communication capabilities on the one side, and the “information flow” on the other. We will imply, via the clever management of that information flow by Nature, that there has been a general evolution of a sort of “natural intelligence”, from single cells to multicellular organisms and to advanced nervous systems, extending also to societies.
    Seemingly the linguistic capability of humans has put our societies in an entirely new path. That’s right, but we can also analyze the evolution of the information flows and the processing structures in our societies along some of the previous guidelines: both the natural information flows related to the individual lives and the artificial flows generated via technological systems. Like in the case of cells or in nervous systems, a degree of “social intelligence” might be ascertained too.
    In human societies, the new thinking needed for Intelligence Science should contribute to a more cogent social management of the whole system of sciences. The art of “knowledge recombination” has to be practiced with some more scientific guidance, mainly by Intelligence Science and Information Science, so that the immense body of scientific knowledge accumulated –in the order of 6,000 disciplines– becomes useful to reorient the productive system and to grant collective sustainability. A new scientific culture has to be promoted; a new dialog among theoretical and experimental scientists and philosophers from very different fields has to be established; and the natural phenomenology underlying the essential link between intelligence and information has to be plainly revealed. In the extent to which this can be achieved, an important social mission will be fulfilled by Intelligence Science and Information Science.

16 RUPA (IMAGE), MATHEMATICS AND MATHEMATICAL ARTIST

 Mihir Kr. Chakraborty, School of Cognitive Science Jadavpur University,Kolkata, India

In this talk, a new approach forwards the philosophy of mathematics has been proposed in which the ontology of the mathematical object has been considered to be similar to an artifact -an art object, a mental image or RUPA. RUPA is a word of sanskrit language meaning visual images or forms but it also include the beauty radiated from the image.

A mathematician has been considered as an artist creating this kind of mental image a RUPA. It has been argued that a mathematician has two main roles to play-as an artist, creation of mathematical objects, the 'RUPA's and then as a discoverer, probing into further properties hidden into the mathematical object created by herself. Other similarities with the artistic creation has been focused similarities with musical performance has also been probed into. Finally consistency in mathematics has parallel with symmetry am balance in art. In art symmetry traditional plays a very vital role as consistency play in mathematics. Yet an artist desires to liberate herself from traditional symmetry in order to create new art. Can such a thing happen in mathematics also with respect to the notion of consistency? The tak ends with a positive nod toward the answer.”

17 Set Pair Analysis (SPA) theory and Intelligent Science

 Keqin Zhao, Zhuji Institute of Connection Mathematics, Zhuji 311811,China

Set Pair Analysis(SPA) is a kind of mathematical theory,which is used for processing system uncertainty. The theory was first put forward in 1989 by Ke-qin Zhao, who is the Chinese scholar in the field of mathematics. The SPA theory use the Contact Number as the main mathematical tool, that’s why SPA is called the Connection Mathematics(MA) as well. Using the Connection Number of features, we could solve the problems of uncertainty, in the way of Objectively to admit the existence of uncertainty, Systematically described the existence of uncertainty, Quantitatively depict uncertainty, Concrete analysis to uncertainty.

 In achieving this method, several relationship could be combined, such as the probability theory and the fuzzy set theory, the simplicity and the complexity, the certainty and the uncertaintyare, the system analysis and the quantitative calculationare, the static and the dynamic, etc. As a result, SPA is called Connection Science(CS) as well. Set Pair Analysis(or Connection Mathematics and Connection Science)has been widely used in many fields. Till now, there’re more than 4000 literatures used the SPA theory both in Chinese and English can be searched in CNKI. These literatures are in wild fields, such as aviation, weather forecast, geological mining, hydrology and water resources, energy, transportation, environment, ecology, society, economy, machinery manufacturing, transportation, logistics, post and telecommunications, communications, medical, health, sports, education, politics, security, culture, computer and artificial intelligence ,etc. At the same time, there were 11 monographs about research and application of SPA published in China. As intelligent science is an ability of solving the uncertainty information and uncertainty information essentially, and it’s a frontier science to connect the other subjects such as the mathematics, physics, information science, and life science, so that, SPA could be regarded as the basic subject of intelligent science.

18 Scientific Dimensions in the Thought and Work of Eastern Jin Guo Pu

 Sophia Kidd康书雅, Sichuan University, School of Literature and Journalism,Sichuan, China

This paper offers a perspective on intelligence science grounded in the humanities rather than in the sciences. However, the methodology employed in research and argumentation throughout this paper aims to be scientific in nature, using a textually grounded approach as its base of operations in exploring scientific dimensions in Eastern Guo Pu’s 郭璞 (276-324 CE) thought and work. In light of the academic debate in China and internationally regarding the history of Chinese scientific thought prior to and through the Qing dynasty, we also explore what we mean in this paper by ‘scientific’.

As space and time are limited, we will focus our discussion of Guo Pu’s work on the author’s preface in his annotation and commentary of the Classic of Mountains and Seas山海经. It will be demonstrated that Guo Pu’s thought and writing, while empirically grounded in linguistic and natural sciences, also made great contribution to what we know of today as the social sciences, such as cultural geography. We will discover that many of the prejudices, then as well as today, against Guo Pu as being too ‘vacuous’ 虚and not ‘scientific’ or ‘real’ enough 实, were and are founded in a prejudice against cosmological models popular in the Han Dynasty such as Yin Yang 阴阳, Five Element 五行, and Yijing 易经 based ontologies. Judgments of these cosmological and ontological models as ‘unscientific’ lie at the fault line uneasily separating rational thought from imagination. Lastly, in order to provide context for Guo Pu’s work as a geographer in his annotation of the Mountains and Seas, we will also examine the scientific dimensions found in the preface to another cartographic work, Yu Gong diyu tu禹贡地域图written by Western Jin author and geographer, Pei Xiu裴秀(224-271 CE).

21  Research framework of brain cognitive structure based on human machine cognitive coupling state
—Cognitive design from cognitive computing

Shimin Meng,  Key Laboratory of cognitive computing and intelligent information processing, Wuyi College, Wuyishan City, Fujian Province, China

Learning is the change of cognitive structure. Currently, the cognitive structure is the object coming and going without a trace. Constructing cognitive mathematical description theory, and innovating cognitive observation, detection, prediction, reconstruction and imaging technologies are of great importance.

The foundation of the study of cognitive structure is the structure observation and information collection of the cognition in a brain. How to observe the cognitive structures and processes in a brain? From the perspective of observation, cognitive structure observation is divided into two major ways, namely, internal direct mode in which the cognitive structures are observed by entering in a brain and external coupling mode in which the cognitive structures are observed by mirroring, inducting, coupling to the exterior of a brain. From the perspective of information, cognitive structures are the link topology networks of cognitive information processing, where computers are good imaging and coupling tools. Based on mathematical tools, such as category, topology, manifold and dynamic systems, as well as cognitive philosophy, such as situations, embodiment, distribution, extension, research platforms and structures of human computer interaction cognitive coupling state are established to realize cognitive process, structural explicitation, visualization, and systematization. Research on structure, function, topology, dynamics and evolution is carried out for cognitive structures, providing technical support for designing, constructing, training and regulating the human machine cognitive structures, thus promoting the development of the application in human machine learning and education.

22 Intelligence Science Leads Future Civilization

Chuan Zhao, Chengdu University of Technology, Chengdu, China

From Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Intelligence Science (IS) is a strategic transformation led by the Chinese Association For Artificial Intellgence( CAAI), in October, 2003.  After the success to hold rules of natural, the view of science has begun focused to intelligence. Intelligence Science is a new science while scientific spirit applied to mental phenomena. It is an emergent multidisciplinary direction. Here long-stangidng orientcal thoght and West modern culture meet, here Science, Art and philosophy meet, and new paradigm for civilization should evolve.

    I should mention the Wheel of Civilizations and research how we should run it to form new civilization, should take about the three-dimension-symmetry we should balance now. Though Intelligence Science has born only 13 years and very few people know it, but it has already been an important contribution to science. For it focue human’s attention to deep and big scienctifical questions. It has great mission and should led the development of science and future civilization. I should talk aobut the development of IS these year and put out some open questions for scholars to go on discuss.
    As a researcher of Intelligence Science I should expound my own original work Phase Theorem later. It was put out in 2005, during the first Conference on Universal Logic in Switzerland. In that conference the title of my speech was: “Form Orient Logic to Phase Theory”. I am trying to integrate science and orient thought. What is phase and how phase changes? Phase is a basic concept within almost many fields. The presentation should introduce some new development these years.
