Linus Pauling : a life in science and politics by Ted George Goertzel ( Book )
7 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Based on interviews with Pauling's relatives and teachers going back to the 1960s, this book offers unprecedented access to his life. But it does not shy away from his faults. It chronicles his final controversial crusade against the medical establishment, in which he advocated vitamin C as a treatment for everything from the common cold to cancer. And it examines the conflicts at the Linus Pauling Institute, including his apparent betrayal of Arthur Robinson, a promising young scientist who was once his closest collaborator and disciple."--BOOK JACKET
Advances in artificial general intelligence concepts, architectures and algorithms : proceedings of the AGI Workshop 2006 by AGI Workshop ( )
7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examines the creation of software programs displaying broad, deep, human-style general intelligence. This work features papers presented at the 2006 AGIRI (Artificial General Intelligence Research Institute) workshop, which illustrates that it is a fit and proper subject for serious science and engineering exploration
Artificial general intelligence by Ben Goertzel ( )
25 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first book on current research on artificial general intelligence (AGI), work explicitly focused on engineering general intelligence? autonomous, self-reflective, self-improving, commonsensical intelligence. Each author explains a specific aspect of AGI in detail in each chapter, while also investigating the common themes in the work of diverse groups, and posing the big, open questions in this vital area. This book will be of interest to researchers and students who require a coherent treatment of AGI and the relationships between AI and related fields such as physics, philosophy
From complexity to creativity explorations in evolutionary, autopoietic, and cognitive dynamics by Ben Goertzel ( )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This groundbreaking text applies the concepts of complexity science to provide a unified scientific explanation of all aspects of human creativity. The book clearly describes the psynet model-a novel complex-systems theory-that integrates ideas from computer science, mathematics, neurobiology, philosophy, and cognitive and personality psychology. Goertzel shows how common computer science algorithms, such as neural nets and genetic algorithms, fit into the mental and creative process, and proposes that the understanding of mathematics must be extended to successfully deal with the mind's workings
Probabilistic logic networks a comprehensive conceptual, mathematical and computational framework for uncertain inference by Ben Goertzel ( )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book describes Probabilistic Logic Networks (PLN), a novel conceptual, mathematical and computational approach to uncertain inference. Going beyond prior probabilistic approaches to uncertain inference, PLN encompasses such ideas as induction, abduction, analogy, fuzziness and speculation, and reasoning about time and causality. The book provides an overview of PLN in the context of other approaches to uncertain inference."--BOOK JACKET
Real-world reasoning toward scalable, uncertain spatiotemporal, contextual and causal inference by Ben Goertzel ( )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The general problem addressed in this book is a large and important one: how to usefully deal with huge storehouses of complex information about real-world situations. Every one of the major modes of interacting with such storehouses - querying, data mining, data analysis - is addressed by current technologies only in very limited and unsatisfactory ways. The impact of a solution to this problem would be huge and pervasive, as the domains of human pursuit to which such storehouses are acutely relevant is numerous and rapidly growing. Finally, we give a more detailed treatment of one potential
Theoretical foundations of artificial general intelligence by Pei Wang ( )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a collection of writings by active researchers in the field of Artificial General Intelligence, on topics of central importance in the field. Each chapter focuses on one theoretical problem, proposes a novel solution, and is written in sufficiently non-technical language to be understandable by advanced undergraduates or scientists in allied fields. This book is the very first collection in the field of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) focusing on theoretical, conceptual, and philosophical issues in the creation of thinking machines. All the authors are researchers actively developing AGI projects, thus distinguishing the book from much of the theoretical cognitive science and AI literature, which is generally quite divorced from practical AGI system building issues. And the discussions are presented in a way that makes the problems and proposed solutions understandable to a wide readership of non-specialists, providing a distinction from the journal and conference-proceedings literature. The book will benefit AGI researchers and students by giving them a solid orientation in the conceptual foundations of the field (which is not currently available anywhere); and it would benefit researchers in allied fields by giving them a high-level view of the current state of thinking in the AGI field. Furthermore, by addressing key topics in the field in a coherent way, the collection as a whole may play an important role in guiding future research in both theoretical and practical AGI, and in linking AGI research with work in allied disciplines
The path to posthumanity 21st century technology and its radical implications for mind, society and reality by Ben Goertzel ( )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The structure of intelligence : a new mathematical model of mind by Ben Goertzel ( Book )
9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chaotic logic : language, thought, and reality from the perspective of complex systems science by Ben Goertzel ( Book )
9 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first work to apply complex systems science to the psychological interplay of order and chaos. The author draws on thought from a wide range of disciplines-both conventional and unorthodox-to address such questions as the nature of consciousness, the relation between mind and reality, and the justification of belief systems. The material should provoke thought among systems scientists, theoretical psychologists, artificial intelligence researchers, and philosophers
The evolving mind by Ben Goertzel ( Book )
6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Creating Internet intelligence : wild computing, distributed digital consciousness, and the emerging global brain by Ben Goertzel ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Creating Internet Intelligence is an interdisciplinary treatise exploring the hypothesis that global computer and communication networks will one day evolve into an autonomous intelligent system, and making specific recommendations as to what engineers and scientists can do today to encourage and shape this evolution. A general theory of intelligent systems is described, based on the author's previous work; and in this context, the specific notion of Internet intelligence is fleshed out, in its commercial, social, psychological, computer-science, philosophical, and theological aspects. Software engineering work carried out by the author and his team over the last few years, aimed at seeding the emergence of Internet intelligence, is reviewed in some detail, including the Webmind AI Engine, a uniquely powerful Internet-based digital intelligence, and the Webworld platform for peer-to-peer distributed cognition and artificial life. The book should be of interest to computer scientists, philosophers, and social scientists, and more generally to anyone concerned about the nature of the mind, or the evolution of computer and Internet technology and its effect on human life
