What is Cognitive AI?
Artificial intelligence has made great strides in recent years, but there is still a push to make it more human-like in its understanding and capabilities. According to Daniel Kahneman's book, Thinking, Fast and Slow, contemporary deep learning systems can be compared to what he calls "System 1" thinking, which is intuitive, fast, and unconscious. However, the next challenge for AI is to achieve "System 2" thinking, which is slower, logical, and more conscious, and is necessary for planning and reasoning. Some experts believe that the way to achieve these higher cognitive capabilities is through the integration of deep learning with symbolic reasoning and deep knowledge.
This new phase of AI, which we will refer to as "Cognitive AI," will be characterized by contextual adaptation, abstraction, reasoning, and explainability. It will be able to make reliable decisions in unforeseen environments and will eventually be trusted with higher autonomy, making it significant in fields such as robotics, autonomous transportation, and the control of logistics, industrial, and financial systems. As Cognitive AI becomes more advanced, we can also expect to see increased collaboration between humans and machines, as AI serves and learns from us while also communicating and collaborating with us.
Our website is dedicated to building a community around Cognitive AI research. We believe that this new phase of artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize many fields and improve our lives in countless ways. We are hosting regular events, workshops, and a Discord server where people can come together to discuss cognitive AI and all of its possibilities. Whether you're a researcher, a developer, or simply someone who is interested in the topic, we invite you to join our community and participate in the conversations. Together, we can explore the exciting future of cognitive AI and shape it in a way that benefits us all.
