Computational Theory of Perception – Computing with Qualia
A current article on Computing with Words – ‘Challenges for Perceptual Computer Applications and How They Were Overcome’, IEEE computational Intelligence Mag, Aug 2012, Pg 36, brings up a topic we had not discussed in a couple of years and was one of our early tenets – there is no reason to assume that the brain computes using numbers – although we have discussed the idea of the universal computing machine (Turing) it may be to accomplish what the brain does with perceptions when done with numbers would require the ‘infinite tape’. So this week we want to revisit this idea of computing with Qualia = perceptions. We hypothesize that the fundamental reason for the failure of our current ‘intelligent’ computational approaches is the “unavailability of a methodology for reasoning and computing with perceptions rather than measurements.”
