Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence : an empirical science

  title={Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence : an empirical science},
  author={Herbert and Amaury Simon},
My initial tasks in this paper are, first, to delimit the boundaries of artificial intelligence, then, to justify calling it a science: is AI science, or is it engineering, or some combination of these? After arguing that it is (at least) a science, I will consider how it is best pursued: in particular, the respective roles for experiment and theory in developing AI. I will rely more on history than on speculation, for our actual experience in advancing the field has much to tell us about how…

Adaptive networks for robotics and the emergence of reward anticipatory circuits
This thesis proposes a formal model of functional integration, encompassing locomotion and sequence learning, and presents some ideas on how the co-evolution of GasNet and reward adaptive circuits might lead to significant improvements in the synthesis of agents capable of exhibiting complex adaptive behaviour.
A Literature Analysis of Research on Artificial Intelligence in Management Information System (MIS)
An overview of applied AI in Management is provided, highlights the most studied related topics and techniques and contributes to a research agenda on the subject.

On the Thresholds of Knowledge
Three major findings in the domain of artificial intelligence are articulated and it is concluded that together these concepts can determine a direction for future AI research.
The Experimental Study of Machine Learning
Research in AI and cognitive science further suggests that one can view science as a search through a space of theories that requires two active components { a generator and a test}; the generator produces new theories or variants on existing theories, whereas the test yields information concerning the quality of theories.
Intelligence without Representation
The Sciences of the Artificial
Continuing his exploration of the organization of complexity and the science of design, this new edition of Herbert Simon's classic work on artificial intelligence adds a chapter that sorts out the
The game of chess
Cognitive Architectures and Rational Analysis: Comment
In my view, Anderson assigns too little weight to architecture (and by implication to strategies) as determinants of adaptive behavior.
Benchmarks, Test Beds, Controlled Experimentation, and the Design of Agent Architectures
This work surveys existing test beds for agents and argues for appropriate caution in their use, and debates the proper role of experimental methodology in the design and validation of planning agents.
