System Intentionality and the Artificial Intelligence Hermeneutic Network: the Role of Intentional Vocabulary

  title={System Intentionality and the Artificial Intelligence Hermeneutic Network: the Role of Intentional Vocabulary},
  author={Zhu Jichen and D. Harrell},
Computer systems that are designed explicitly to exhibit intentionality embody a phenomenon of increasing cultural importance. In typical discourse about arti�cial intelligence (AI) systems, system intentionality is often seen as a technical and ontological property of a program, resulting from its underlying algorithms and knowledge engineering. Infuenced by hermeneutic approaches to text analysis and drawing from the areas of actor-network theory and philosophy of mind, this paper proposes a… Expand

The Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) Hermeneutic Network : A New Approach to Analysis and Design of Intentional Systems
Digital information technologies are increasingly being adopted in the humanities as both research tools and supports for new forms of cultural expression. Some of these digital technologies, inExpand
Intentional systems and the artificial intelligence (ai) hermeneutic network: agency and intentionality in expressive computational systems
Human interaction with technical artifacts is often mediated by treating them as if they are alive. We exclaim "my car doesn't want to start," or "my computer loves to crash." Of increasing culturalExpand
Agent theories and architectures
This thesis examines a number of studies from Artificial Intelligence, Logic, Natural Language semantics and Philosophy which give shape to the current state of the art in agent theory, and develops a mathematical model of multi-object/agent interaction, which is called the SRS-model (SRS - Synchronous Reactive Systems).

The Copycat Project: An Experiment in Nondeterminism and Creative Analogies
A micro-world is described, in which many analogies involving strikingly different concepts and levels of subtlety can be made, and the problem of how to implement a computational model of the human ability to come up with such analogies is considered. Expand
The Copycat project: a model of mental fluidity and analogy-making
The current version of Copycat is not able to create two simultaneous bonds between two given objects, so the program is at present unable to get what many people consider to be the best answer to Problem 6. Expand
How We Became Posthuman: Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics, Literature and Informatics
From the Publisher: In this age of DNA computers and artificial intelligence, information is becoming disembodied even as the "bodies" that once carried it vanish into virtuality. While some marvelExpand

Analogical Mapping by Constraint Satisfaction
A theory of analogical mapping between source and target analogs based upon interacting structural, semantic, and pragmatic constraints is proposed here and is able to account for empirical findings regarding the impact of consistency and similarity on human processing of analogies. Expand
Daydreaming with Intention: Scalable Blending-Based Imagining and Agency in Generative Interactive Narrative
This paper presents recent development of a blending-based system that generates interactive narrative output and introduces a novel construct called a “scale of intentionality” that is technically grounded in algebraic semiotics, conceptual blending theory, computational narrative research, and informed by the notion of critical technical practice of AI research.

The Structure-Mapping Engine: Algorithm and Examples
SME has been built to explore Gentner's structure-mapping theory of analogy, and provides a "tool kit" for constructing matching algorithms consistent with this theory, making it a useful component in machine learning systems as well. Expand
