A note on context [Apr. 9th, 2006|02:01 am]
Napkin Philosophy



The very thing that defines human reasoning as opposed to anything that is easy to program is context

Context is defined by three things.

1. An environment - specifically, interacting to stimuli in the environment and having it change how you reason
2. Identity - an idea of who you are (something a computer generally doesn't know - instead, they often have "purpose")
3. Communication - in other words, other agents that you can talk to (which is like environment, but more specific)

Context in intelligence is essential for any model of human intelligence as well as any artificial intelligence approach that hopes to be successful - at least in a full/strong AI sense (more than amazon knowing what kinds of things you like).
