—We see the field of metareasoning to be the answer to many large organizational problems encountered when putting together an understandable cognitive architecture, capable of commonsense reasoning. In this paper we review the EM1 implementation of the Emotion Machine critic-selector architecture, as well as explain the current progress we have made in(More)
Ubiquitous computing has established a vision of computation where computers are so deeply integrated into our lives that they become both invisible and everywhere. In order to have computers out of sight and out of mind, they will need a deeper understanding of human life. LifeNet (Singh and Williams, 2003) is a model that functions as a computational(More)
User interfaces to consumer electronics devices – Video recorders, phones, cameras, washing machines, microwave ovens, etc. – are getting too complicated to be easily used by ordinary consumers. We believe that what is responsible for such complication is a design philosophy which simply maps functions the device can perform to controls like buttons and(More)
Embedded-sensor platforms are advancing toward such sophistication that they can differentiate between subtle actions. For example, when placed in a wristwatch, such platforms can tell whether a person is shaking hands or turning a doorknob. Sensors placed on objects in the environment now report many parameters, including object location, movement, sound,(More)
A metareasoning problem involves three parts: 1) a set of concrete problem domains; 2) reasoners to reason about the problems; and, 3) metareasoners to reason about the reason-ers. We believe that the metareasoning community would benefit from agreeing on the first two problems. To support this kind of collaboration, we offer an open source 3D sim-ulator(More)
Efficient Public key encryption with key word search (EPEKS) enables user Alice to send a secret key to a server that will enable the server to locate all encrypted messages containing the keyword, but learn nothing else. We have already published a previous paper explaining this scheme the Efficient Public Key Encryption with Keyword Search (EPEKS). In(More)

Recent research in building large semantic networks of commonsense human-knowledge, such as ConceptNet, has been driven by a small number of hand-programmed rules for recognizing and placing value on specific numbers and types of semantic relationships. We propose statistical algorithms for learning these semantic relationships from partially ordered sets(More)
