Concepts (generalizations; higher-level thinking)

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Concepts occur as abstractions or generalizations from experience; from the result of a transformation of existing ideas; or from innate properties.

Concepts are defined as components of human cognition in the cognitive science disciplines of linguistics, psychology and philosophy. Concepts are used as formal tools or models in mathematics, computer science, databases and artificial intelligence where they are sometimes called classes, schema or categories.

Sometimes concepts are known by other names in everyday language such as “kinds”, “types” or “topics”, as in “Chamomile is a kind of tee”, or “A SUV is a kind of a car”.

The key to autonomic A.I. (higher-level thinking)

Keywords, ontologies, taxonomies, samples & models etc. are not good enough to implement unsupervised learning. To get A.I. into the next level: unsupervised learning, autonomic decision making among many other new features are needed.

The Analyst Toolbox of ai-one™ features the new approach of unsupervised learning combined with autonomic concept detection. That enables us to equip our Software-Agents (Machines) with higher-level thinking (complex higher-order pattern recognition).
