Free sample

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 26th Annual German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, KI 2003, held in Hamburg, Germany in September 2003. The 42 revised full papers presented together with 5 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 90 submissions from 22 countries. The papers are organized in topical sections on logics and ontologies, cognitive modeling, reasoning methods, machine learning, neural networks, reasoning under uncertainty, planning and constraints, spatial modeling, user modeling, and agent technology.

The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains. If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become very powerful. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on us humans than on the gorillas themselves, so the fate of our species then would come to depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one advantage: we get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed AI or otherwise to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation? To get closer to an answer to this question, we must make our way through a fascinating landscape of topics and considerations. Read the book and learn about oracles, genies, singletons; about boxing methods, tripwires, and mind crime; about humanity's cosmic endowment and differential technological development; indirect normativity, instrumental convergence, whole brain emulation and technology couplings; Malthusian economics and dystopian evolution; artificial intelligence, and biological cognitive enhancement, and collective intelligence. This profoundly ambitious and original book picks its way carefully through a vast tract of forbiddingly difficult intellectual terrain. Yet the writing is so lucid that it somehow makes it all seem easy. After an utterly engrossing journey that takes us to the frontiers of thinking about the human condition and the future of intelligent life, we find in Nick Bostrom's work nothing less than a reconceptualization of the essential task of our time.
Alle Prozesse in der Natur enthalten eine oder mehrere ungewisse Komponenten, zeigen Ungewißheiten oder haben einen mehr oder weniger ungewissen Ausgang. Dabei kann man unterscheiden, ob man einen Vorgang -oder einen Teil davon -als ungewiß ansieht, weil man ihn nicht exakt deterministisch erfassen kann (z. B. die Kursentwicklung an einer Wertpapierbörse), ob man ihn als genuin zufällig ansieht (z. B. den radioaktiven Zerfall eines Stoffes) oder ob die Ungewißheit des Vorgangs von seiner Beschreibung mit vagen Begriffen herrührt. Unsere heutigen sehr kom plexen sozialen und technischen Strukturen sind ohne den Einsatz von Verfahren zur Behandlung ungewisser Effekte nicht mehr vorstellbar, wenn man z. B. nur an Lebens-und Krankenversicherungen einerseits und an die Berechnung der Zu verlässigkeit technischer Systeme und Prozesse andererseits denkt. Die Entwicklung mathematischer Werkzeuge zur Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und Statistik führte zu der bis in unser Jahrhundert unangefochtenen Stellung der Stochastik als der besten wissenschaftlichen Methode zur Behandlung von Aspekten der Ungewißheit. In der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts etablierte sich dann die Fuzzy Theorie, die Lotfi Zadeh in der Arbeit "Fuzzy Sets" (1965) als Verallgemeinerung der Can torschen Mengentheorie begründete, als eine ernstzunehmende Konkurrentin für die Aufgabe, Ungewißheiten zu modellieren. Die weiteren Entwicklungen brachten eine über Jahrzehnte geführte Auseinandersetzung zwischen Stochastikern und Vertre tern der Fuzzy Theorie, aber auch eine überaus erfolgreiche Anwendung der Theorie in vielen Bereichen der angewandten Wissenschaften und der Industrie.
We are glad to present the proceedings of the 5th biennial conference in the Intelligent Data Analysis series. The conference took place in Berlin, Germany, August 28–30, 2003. IDA has by now clearly grown up. Started as a small si- symposium of a larger conference in 1995 in Baden-Baden (Germany) it quickly attractedmoreinterest(bothsubmission-andattendance-wise),andmovedfrom London (1997) to Amsterdam (1999), and two years ago to Lisbon. Submission ratesalongwiththeeverimprovingqualityofpapershaveenabledtheor- nizers to assemble increasingly consistent and high-quality programs. This year we were again overwhelmed by yet another record-breaking submission rate of 180 papers. At the Program Chairs meeting we were – based on roughly 500 reviews – in the lucky position of carefully selecting 17 papers for oral and 42 for poster presentation. Poster presenters were given the opportunity to summarize their papers in 3-minute spotlight presentations. The oral, spotlight and poster presentations were then scheduled in a single-track, 2. 5-day conference program, summarized in this book. In accordance with the goal of IDA, “to bring together researchers from diverse disciplines,” we achieved a nice balance of presentations from the more theoreticalside(bothstatisticsandcomputerscience)aswellasmoreapplicati- oriented areas that illustrate how these techniques can be used in practice. Work presented in these proceedings ranges from theoretical contributions dealing, for example, with data cleaning and compression all the way to papers addressing practical problems in the areas of text classi?cation and sales-rate predictions. A considerable number of papers also center around the currently so popular applications in bioinformatics.
