Seqsee: a concept-centered architecture for sequence perception

  title={Seqsee: a concept-centered architecture for sequence perception},
  author={Douglas Richard Hofstadter and A. Mahabal},
One of the goals of this project is to design and implement a computer program that can extend integer sequences intelligently, and the project has resulted in the creation of the program named "Seqsee" (pronounced "sexy"). Seqsee can extend a wide range of cognitively interesting sequences, including the following sequence (Seqsee is presented the sequence without the groupings indicated by the parentheses): ( (1) ) ( (1) (1 2) ) ( (1) (1 2) (1 2 3) ) If people are shown this sequence… Expand
A computer model of context-dependent perception in a very simple world
The foundations of a computer model of scientific discovery that takes into account certain psychological aspects of human observation of the world are proposed, and the starting phase of discovery is the relatively simple visual inputs of objects and collisions. Expand
Comparing Computer Models Solving Number Series Problems
An overview of existing cognitive and computational models, their underlying algorithmic approaches and problem classes are given, and a first empirical comparison of some of these approaches with focus on artificial neural nets and inductive programming is presented. Expand
System Induction Games and Cognitive Modeling as an AGI Methodology
A methodology for using human cognition as a template for artificial generally intelligent agents that learn from experience is proposed and the problem of learning certain Mealy machines from observations of their behavior is considered. Expand


Benefits of Incorporating a Stream of Thought: A Case Study
It is argued here that the stream greatly improves similarity discovery and naturally facilitates self-watching and how without the stream some issues become insoluble or at least substantially harder. Expand
Seek-Whence: A Model of Pattern Perception
Seek-Vhence is an inductive leerning progre that serves as a model for the programming of "intelligent" systems, and contains biologically-inspired approach to processing; levels of abstraction in both representation and processing. Expand
The Subtlety of Sameness: A Theory and Computer Model of Analogy-Making
At the heart of the author's theory and computer model of analogy-making is the idea that the building-up and the manipulation of representations are inseparable aspects of mental functioning, in contrast to traditional AI models of high-level cognitive processes, which have almost always depended on a clean separation. Expand
Metacat: a self-watching cognitive architecture for analogy-making and high-level perception
Metacat is able to monitor its own processing, allowing it to recog- nize, remember, and recall patterns that occur in its “train of thought” as it makes analogies, giving the program a high degree of flexibility and self-control. Expand
Scripts, plans, goals and understanding: an inquiry into human knowledge structures
For both people and machines, each in their own way, there is a serious problem in common of making sense out of what they hear, see, or are told about the world. The conceptual apparatus necessaryExpand
Copycat: a computer model of high-level perception and conceptual slippage in analogy-making
Central to every facet of human intelligence are the abilities to flexibly perceive and categorize situations, to see beyond superficial details and understand the essence of a situation, and to makeExpand
The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences
  • N. Sloane
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • Electron. J. Comb.
  • 1994
The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (or OEIS) is a database of some 130000 number sequences which serves as a dictionary, to tell the user what is known about a particular sequence and is widely used. Expand
Mental Spaces: Aspects of Meaning Construction in Natural Language
A finding that challenges several traditional and widespread views on meaning and natural language, with far-reaching implications: adequate theories of truth and reference cannot bypass the cognitive space-construction process, and standard linguistic arguments for hidden structural levels are invalidated.

Letter spirit (part one): emergent high-level perception of letters using fluid concepts
This thesis presents initial work on the Letter Spirit project, with a cognitive model of letter perception as its centerpiece. The Letter Spirit project aims to model central aspects of humanExpand
Programming a computer for playing chess
This paper is concerned with the problem of constructing a computing routine or “program” for a modern general purpose computer which will enable it to play chess. Although perhaps of no practicalExpand
