Most widely held works by Ben Goertzel
Linus Pauling : a life in science and politics by Ted George Goertzel( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most important and controversial scientists and public figures of our time, Linus Pauling was, for many, a universal hero. He was the first Scientist ever to win two unshared Nobel Prizes - one for science and one for peace - and when he died on August 19, 1994, newspapers across the country carried front page stories detailing his extraordinary achievements." "This book, the first biography since his death, traces Pauling's long and exciting life. His brilliant insights in applying quantum mechanics to complex molecules, for which he was awarded his first Noble Prize, played a pivotal role in the development of the modern field of chemistry. He did more than any other scientist to establish the new science of molecular biology." "The book covers Pauling's fascinating personal life, from his boyhood on the Oregon frontier, throught the death of his father when Linus was nine, his rebellion against his mother who opposed his going to college, and his long and happy marriage to his college sweetheart, Ava Helen. By the time Pauling was in his twenties, he was already a world-famous scientist." "But he was also a committed political activist, willing to put aside his own research to work for what he felt was right. During World War II, he designed a new oxygen meter for airplanes and submarines and a synthetic blood plasma for medical emergencies. In the 1950s, he heroically fought against McCarthyism and successfully campaigned to stop nuclear testing. He paid a price scientifically for his activism, however. Denied a visa at a key point in his research on DNA, and therefore unable to profit from related research being conducted in England, he published an erroneous model just months before Crick and Watson released their findings."
Chaotic logic : language, thought, and reality from the perspective of complex systems science by Ben Goertzel( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 257 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

From complexity to creativity : explorations in evolutionary, autopoietic, and cognitive dynamics by Ben Goertzel( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 197 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
The evolving mind by Ben Goertzel( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mind in time : the dynamics of thought, reality, and consciousness( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a collection of essays that all share a common concern with time, process and consciousness. The chapters represent a variety of different perspectives and the authors span the disciplines of psychology, mathematics, physics and psychiatry. As a whole, the collection presents a coherent view of mind as a complex, evolving, self-organizing system." "It fills a gap in the rapidly expanding field of consciousness studies by bringing the latter into focus from the perspective of another fast-growing field of inquiry, the sciences of complexity. It contains original chapters by several prominent theorists, including the late David Bohm, creator of the holographic paradigm in physics, in an essay on consciousness and meaning, which has not been previously published."--Jacket
Probabilistic logic networks : a comprehensive framework for uncertain inference by Ben Goertzel( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 102 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."--Jacket

Real-World Reasoning: Toward Scalable, Uncertain Spatiotemporal, Contextual and Causal Inference by Ben Goertzel( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 47 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 solution with this class, based on our prior work with the Probabilistic Logic Networks (PLN) formalism. We show how PLN can be used to carry out realworld reasoning, by means of a number of practical examples of reasoning regarding human activities inreal-world situations

Artificial general intelligence : 8th International Conference, AGI 2015, Berlin, Germany, July 22-25, 2015. Proceedings by AGI (Conference)( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Artificial General Intelligence, AGI 2015, held in Berlin, Germany in July 2015. The 41 papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 72 submissions. The AGI conference series has played, and continues to play, a significant role in this resurgence of research on artificial intelligence in the deeper, original sense of the term of ℓ́ℓartificial intelligenceℓ́ℓ. The conferences encourage interdisciplinary research based on different understandings of intelligence, and exploring different approaches. AGI research differs from the ordinary AI research by stressing on the versatility and wholeness of intelligence, and by carrying out the engineering practice according to an outline of a system comparable to the human mind in a certain sense
