Cognitive Heuristics for Commonsense Thinking and Reasoning in the next generation Artificial Intelligence

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


Commonsense reasoning is one of the main open problems in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) while, on the other hand, seems to be a very intuitive and default reasoning mode in humans and other animals.  In this talk, we discuss the different paradigms that have been developed in AI and Computational Cognitive Science to deal with this problem (ranging from logic-based methods, to diagrammatic-based ones). In particular, we discuss - via two different case studies concerning commonsense categorization and knowledge invention tasks - how cognitively inspired heuristics can help (both in terms of efficiency and efficacy) in the realization of intelligent artificial systems able to reason in a human-like fashion, with results comparable to human-level performances.
