Advanced Perl programming

Advanced Perl programming is the third book in a three-book set by William “Bo” Rothwell [1,2]. The three books are titled (and subtitled) in a manner suggesting a pedagogy in Perl that takes readers from a novice state to an expert state. This was an unfortunate...

Cognition and intractability

Is thinking computable--not just in principle, but in practice? In the past this was the subject of vigorous exchanges between philosophers [1,2,3]; today, with the promise of artificial intelligence (AI) appearing ever brighter--in what is arguably its third or fourth...
Complexity Measures & Classes (F.1.3) | Jun 15 21

Cognitive design for artificial minds

How does the human mind work? And how can we build artificial systems that display intelligent behavior? These two questions lie at the core of cognitive science and artificial intelligence (AI), respectively. While they have been treated independently from each other...
