Supplementary to matter and energy, information is the third essence for modeling the natural world. An emerging discipline known as cognitive informatics (CI) is developed recently that forms a profound interdisciplinary study of cognitive and information sciences, and tackles the common root problems sharing by informatics, computing, software engineering, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, neuropsychology, philosophy, linguistics, and life science. CI focuses on internal information…

    2009 8th IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Informatics
  • 2009
TLDR
Recent studies on LRMB in cognitive informatics reveal an entire set of cognitive functions of the brain and their cognitive process models, which explain the functional mechanisms and cognitive processes of the natural intelligence.
Cognitive informatics models of the brain
TLDR
A memory-based approach is adopted to explore the brain and to demonstrate that memory is the foundation for any kind of natural or artificial intelligence.
