The Cognitive Paradigm in the Artificial Intelligence Research

Speaker:  Antonio Lieto – Turin, Italy
Topic(s):  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing


In the last decades, the research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has reached remarkable results in a variety of fields ranging from computer vision to language technologies. Despite these results, however, the realization of artificial systems endowed with human-level intelligence is still far from being achieved. Given this state of affairs, in recent years, the area of cognitively inspired artificial systems has attracted a renewed attention both from academia and industry and the awareness about the need for additional research in this interdisciplinary field is gaining widespread acceptance. In this talk we show how the insights coming from the cognitive research  can be used in the design of intelligent artificial systems with the twofold goal of i) building better (i.e. more intelligent) machines and ii) detecting and discovering, via simulation, novel aspects of the cognitive system taken as a source of inspiration. We will show how the latter goal can provide important insights to progress towards a deeper understanding of the foundational roots of intelligence (both in natural and artificial systems).
