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 1,001 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."--Jacket
Artificial general intelligence by Ben Goertzel( )
28 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 878 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( )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 631 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( )
16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 455 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
Theoretical foundations of artificial general intelligence by Pei Wang( )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 394 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
Real-world reasoning toward scalable, uncertain spatiotemporal, contextual and causal inference by Ben Goertzel( )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 384 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
The path to posthumanity 21st century technology and its radical implications for mind, society and reality by Ben Goertzel( )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The structure of intelligence : a new mathematical model of mind by Ben Goertzel( Book )
10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chaotic logic : language, thought, and reality from the perspective of complex systems science by Ben Goertzel( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 262 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

Artificial general intelligence : 7th International Conference, AGI 2014, Quebec City, QC, Canada, August 1-4, 2014. Proceedings by Ben Goertzel( )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Artificial General Intelligence, AGI 2014, held in Quebec City, QC, Canada, in August 2014. The 22 papers and 8 posters were carefully reviewed and selected from 65 submissions. Researchers have recognized the necessity of returning to the original goals of the field by treating intelligence as a whole. Increasingly, there is a call for a transition back to confronting the more difficult issues of "human-level intelligence" and more broadly artificial general intelligence. 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. 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 "artificial intelligence". The conferences encourage interdisciplinary research based on different understandings of intelligence, and exploring different approaches
Creating Internet intelligence : wild computing, distributed digital consciousness, and the emerging global brain by Ben Goertzel( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
<Em>Creating Internet Intelligence</em> 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
The evolving mind by Ben Goertzel( Book )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mind in time : the dynamics of thought, reality, and consciousness ( Book )
4 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."--BOOK JACKET
