The Novamente AI Engine, a novel AI software system, is briefly reviewed. Unlike the majority of contemporary AI projects, Novamente is aimed at artificial general intelligence, rather than being restricted by design to one particular application domain, or to a narrow range of cognitive functions. Novamente integrates aspects of many prior AI projects and(More)
A teaching methodology called Imitative-Reinforcement-Corrective (IRC) learning is described, and proposed as a general approach for teaching embodied non-linguistic AGI systems. IRC may be used with a variety of different learning algorithms, but it is particularly easily described in EC lingo. In these terms, it is a framework for automatically learning a(More)
A software architecture is described which enables a virtual agent in an online virtual world to carry out simple English language interactions grounded in its perceptions and actions. The use of perceptions to guide anaphor resolution is discussed, along with the use of natural language generation to answer simple questions about the observed world. This(More)
Logic-based AI is often thought of as being restricted to highly abstract domains such as theorem-proving and linguistic semantics. In the Novamente AGI architecture, however, probabilistic logic is used for a wider variety of purposes, including simple reinforcement learning of infantile behaviors, which are primarily concerned with perception and action(More)
RESUMO: Apresentamos neste trabalho um sistema baseado em técnicas de Inteligência Artificial (IA) combinadas de maneira inédita na literatura para fazer a predição do teor de silício em amostras de gusa retiradas de corridas do alto-forno 2 da Acesita. O teor de silício é um dos principais indicadores de qualidade do gusa, portanto um sistema capaz de(More)
The range of geographical distribution of Anthalona acuta Van Damme, Sinev & Dumont 2011 and Anthalona brandorffi (Sinev & Hollwedel, 2002) in Brazil has increased by almost 2000 km to the south. New records of Anthalona verrucosa verrucosa (Sars, 1901) were also added. Populations of Anthalona brandorffi from Central Brazil showed a peculiar morphological(More)
