Abstraction in Artificial Intelligence and Complex Systems

Abstraction in Artificial Intelligence and Complex Systems

Jean-Daniel Zucker


Abstraction is a basic mechanism underlying either human and synthetic belief, illustration of data, reasoning and studying. This mechanism performs a very important position in lots of disciplines, significantly machine Programming, ordinary and synthetic imaginative and prescient, complicated platforms, synthetic Intelligence and computing device studying, artwork, and Cognitive Sciences. This booklet first offers the reader with an summary of the notions of abstraction proposed in a number of disciplines through evaluating either commonalities and differences.  After discussing the characterizing homes of abstraction, a proper version, the KRA model, is gifted to seize them. This version makes the thought of abstraction simply appropriate by way of the advent of a suite of abstraction operators and abstraction styles, reusable throughout diversified domain names and functions. it's the effect of abstraction in man made Intelligence, advanced platforms and computing device studying which creates the center of the book.  A common framework, in line with the KRA model, is gifted, and its pragmatic strength is illustrated with 3 case reviews: Model-based analysis, Cartographic  Generalization, and studying Hierarchical Hidden Markov versions.
