9781591404828: Visions of Mind: Architectures for Cognition and Affect

“What is mind?” “Can we build synthetic or artificial minds?” Think these questions are only reserved for Science Fiction? Well, not anymore. This collection presents a diverse overview of where the development of artificial minds is as the twenty first century begins. Examined from nearly all viewpoints, Visions of Mind includes perspectives from philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, social studies and artificial intelligence. This collection comes largely as a result of many conferences and symposiums conducted by many of the leading minds on this topic. At the core is Professor Aaron Sloman's symposium from the spring 2000 UK Society for Artificial Intelligence conference. Authors from that symposium, as well as others from around the world have updated their perspectives and contributed to this powerful book. The result is a multi-disciplinary approach to the long term problem of designing a human-like mind, whether for scientific, social, or engineering purposes. The topics addressed within this text are valuable to both artificial intelligence and cognitive science, and also to the academic disciplines that they draw on and feed. Among those disciplines are philosophy, computer science, and psychology.

In 1999 and 2000 he was invited by the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science to be a visiting professor at the Graduate Institute at Kyoto University. He is a consultant editor (in AI) for Palgrave, MacMillan. His current research interests are diverse with a current focus on architectures for cognition and affect, robotics and agents, machine vision (in particular adaptive segmentation), and data mining.
