The computer revolution in philosophy : philosophy, science, and models of mind by Aaron Sloman( Book )

17 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From animals to robots and back : reflections on hard problems in the study of cognition : a collection in honour of Aaron Sloman by Jeremy Wyatt( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cognitive Science is a discipline that brings together research in natural and artificial systems and this is clearly reflected in the diverse contributions to From Animals to Robots and Back: Reflections on Hard Problems in the Study of Cognition. In tribute to Aaron Sloman and his pioneering work in Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, the editors have collected a unique collection of cross-disciplinary papers that include work on: · intelligent robotics; · philosophy of cognitive science; · emotional research · computational vision; · comparative psychology; and · human-computer interaction. Key themes such as the importance of taking an architectural view in approaching cognition, run through the text. Drawing on the expertize of leading international researchers, contemporary debates in the study of natural and artificial cognition are addressed from complementary and contrasting perspectives with key issues being outlined at various levels of abstraction. From Animals to Robots and Back: Reflections on Hard Problems in the Study of Cognition, will give readers with backgrounds in the study of both natural and artificial cognition an important window on the state of the art in cognitive systems research

Abstract: "A visual programming language and editor is described that aims to support User Interface design through rapid, exploratory programming. This paper describes work in progress in the User Interface Design Environment (UIDE) project (DTI/SERC: IED 4/1/1577), due for completion in August 1993."
Prolegomena to a theory of communication and affect by Aaron Sloman( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "As a step towards comprehensive computer models of communication, and effective human machine dialogue, some of the relationships between communication and affect are explored. An outline theory is presented of the architecture that makes various kinds of affective states possible, or even inevitable, in intelligent agents, along with some of the implications of this theory for various communicative processes. The model implies that human beings typically have many different, hierarchically organized, dispositions capable of interacting with new information to produce affective states, distract attention, interrupt ongoing actions, and so on

Beyond Turing equivalence by Aaron Sloman( Book )

3 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The more general analysis of mechanisms for intelligent systems starts with the notion of a system with independently variable, causally interacting sub-states that have different causal roles (e.g. some belief- like, some desire-like). For certain architectures, the sub-states will have a semantic interpretation for the system. The relevant concept of semantics is defined in terms of a kind of Tarski-like structural correspondence, with indeterminacy reduced by a semantics based on environmental states that can close causal loops involving behaviour generated by desire-like and belief-like sub-states."
