QUEST Discussion Topics and Weekly News

April 16th, 2010

1.)  This week we are happy to have Dr. Leonid Perlovsky continue his presentation to the QUEST group.  The presentation material will focus on development of dynamic logic, briefly mention transitions to operations, and spend more time on new scientific development: (1) tracking and detection in heavy clutter; (2) adaptive situational awareness (learning subsets of objects related to important situations among many random objects); (3) relating this to Barsalou’s Perceptual Symbol System; (4) future use of this technique for object detection using qualia: modeling objects as sets of features (among many irrelevant features) – also a Barsalou’s idea; (5) modeling interaction of cognition and language; (6) role of emotions in cognition and language; (7) evolution of languages and cultures and the fundamental role of music in cognition.  Dr. Perlovsky has supplied his slides to us, anyone who would like to have a copy please email me beforehand.

2.)  If there is any time remaining, we have prepared a set of slides summarizing the paper ‘Designing Conscious Systems’ by Igor Aleksander that we can bring up and start a discussion on.  Again, just drop me a line if you would like a copy of these slides.
