The logical road to human-level AI is a dead end. Human-level AI requires compassionate intelligence to guide interaction and build applications and operating systems of the future. The cognition of such an agent includes Metacognition: thinking about thinking, thinking about feeling, and thinking about others’ thoughts and feelings. We summarize the core meta-architectures and meta-processes of EM-2, a meta-cognitive agent that uses affective inference and an irrational TMS, the I-TMS, to…

Context-Sensitive Affect Sensing and Metaphor Identification in Virtual Drama

Affect interpretation from story/dialogue context and metaphorical expressions is challenging but essential for the development of emotion inspired intelligent user interfaces. In order to achieve

Evolution of artificial intelligence languages, a systematic literature review

This review provides information on the year of implementation, development team, capabilities, limitations and applications of each of the AI programming languages discussed to guide practitioners and researchers in AI to make the right choice of languages to implement their novel AI methods.

Emotion Oriented Programming: Computational Abstractions for AI Problem Solving

This paper synthesizes emotions as programming abstractions that represent the perception of the environment's state w.r.t. predefined heuristics such as goal distance, action capability, etc to define a mechanism inspired from this observation for general AI problem solving.



Metareasoning: A manifesto

Metareasoning is the process of reasoning that consists of both the meta-level control of computational activities and the introspective monitoring of reasoning, and represents the perception of reasoning and its control.

Long-term meditators self-induce high-amplitude gamma synchrony during mental practice.

It is found that long-term Buddhist practitioners self-induce sustained electroencephalographic high-amplitude gamma-band oscillations and phase-synchrony during meditation, suggesting that mental training involves temporal integrative mechanisms and may induce short-term and long- term neural changes.

Alterations in Brain and Immune Function Produced by Mindfulness Meditation

It is demonstrated that a short program in mindfulness meditation produces demonstrable effects on brain and immune function, and suggest that meditation may change brain andimmune function in positive ways and underscore the need for additional research.

Introspection as Control in Result-Sharing Assumption-Based Reasoning Agents

This paper explores the use of introspection as a mechanism for control in result-sharing cooperative assumptionbased reasoning systems and indicates there exists an interesting class of cooperative distributed problem solving systems in which agents may broadcast results without regard to selection.

The clinical use of mindfulness meditation for the self-regulation of chronic pain

At follow-up, the improvements observed during the meditation training were maintained up to 15 months post-meditation training for all measures except present-moment pain, and the relationship of mindfulness meditation to other psychological methods for chronic pain control is discussed.

The effects of a mindfulness meditation-based stress reduction program on mood and symptoms of stress in cancer outpatients: 6-month follow-up

This program was effective in decreasing mood disturbance and stress symptoms for up to 6 months in both male and female patients with a wide variety of cancer diagnoses, stages of illness, and educational background, and with disparate ages.

Body temperature changes during the practice of g Tum-mo yoga

It is reported here that in a study performed there in February 1981, it was found that three practitioners of the advanced Tibetan Buddhist meditational practice known as g Tum-mo (heat) yoga living in Upper Dharamsala, India exhibited the capacity to increase the temperature of their fingers and toes by as much as 8.3°C.
