Exploring the Logic of Intelligence

Pei Wang (Temple University, Philadelphia), in cooperation with bidt (Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation  BAdW), Room E10 (registration only)

Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, Munich, Room E10


Professor Wang introduces a theory of intelligence, a formal model of the theory, and a computer implementation of the model. He takes “Intelligence” as the ability of adaptation under insufficient knowledge and resources. Non-Axiomatic Reasoning System (NARS) is a formal model realizing this theory, which has been implemented in an open source project OpenNARS. The system shows many properties observed in the human mind. Practical applications of this technique are also under development.
