Mathematical Foundations of Knowledge

Overview As intelligent beings, we’re able to interpret constraints that effect our understanding of the spatial, temporal, social, political, and economic world that we inhabit. Our intuitive realization of boundaries, I argue, stems from the built-in neurological mechanism of classification and pattern recognition. In order to frame experiences in a meaningful way, there must be … Continue reading Mathematical Foundations of Knowledge


On Relational Knowledge Representation

Overview In order to effectively represent knowledge so that it may be utilized in future problem-solving, it is necessary to encode relational information beginning at the spatial-temporal dimension and working upward with increasing complexity, such that the relations at higher levels are constructed from those below, with the result being a theoretically infinite hierarchy of … Continue reading On Relational Knowledge Representation


Adaptive Template Model of Intelligence

Click to see this project on GitHub 1. Introduction 1.1) Problem Overview Traditionally, template-matching algorithms have been used for things like digital image processing and visual pattern recognition. There are typically sets of small, two-dimensional filters that are moved across a gray-scale image in order to detect instances of low-level visual patterns. Pattern recognition via … Continue reading Adaptive Template Model of Intelligence

The Nature of Knowledge: a Frame-Based Approach

Slots and Types A slot is a data structure that holds a value within a particular domain at any given time. Slots represent abstract types and the values held at any given time represent instances of the types, where the domain is the set of known instances of the type. Each possible value is mutually … Continue reading The Nature of Knowledge: a Frame-Based Approach
