Re: [Artificial Intelligence Group] ROBOTICS
- Sarthak Dash,
Yes, AI is finding important uses in every field.
The basis of any robotic system is positive and negative feed back.
The best example I have seen of negative feed back was at a gift store. A
small black plastic project box with a single toggle switch on it. No
label. People inevitably were drawn throw the switch. A tiny motor would
start running inside, the lid would open slowly and a tiny plastic doll hand
would reach out and throw the switch back to the off position, retract
suddenly and the lid would slam shut.
-- Welcome to robotics.
PS. I am looking for talented volunteers who would like to work on the
worlds most advanced robotic vehicle that we are preparing for the DARPA
Urban Challenge. If you have any spare time and would like the resume
bullet point, contact me.

differentiating(positive)/integrating(negative) commonly labelled in
neurosciences as WHAT/WHERE.
The parallel dynamics is best seen in such concepts as mathematics sequences
- e.g. Fibonacci - where the positive is in the syntax and so precise
ordering of numbers in the sequence, and the negative is in the oscillation
of the ratio of pairs of the sequence as we get closer and closer to 1.618
Precision is in the tightening of the 'spiral' that comes out of these
sequences as the numbers get 'bigger'.
If we treat the sequences as markers of considering past contexts to
influence current 'meaning' then the fib pattern gives us a gentle growth
Considering two past context moments (regardless of scale) will give a
Fibonacci sequence. Considering ALL past contexts will give a binary
sequence and so our gentle spiral becomes a square spiral reflecting the
A/NOT-A nature of binary 'thinking' and so dichotomy usage.
Dichotomies come in the form of an asymmetric form that contains the
symmetric and the anti-symmetric. Meaning is derived from the asymmetric
dichotomy through self-referencing - it gives a set of qualities usable to
communicate notions of whole, part, static relationship, dynamic
Mathematics contains these qualities in the form of the basic types of
Whole - whole numbers
Part - rational numbers
Static (share space) - irrational
Dynamic (share time) - imaginary
From these we create composite forms of real, complex, quaternions,
IOW from basic issues of feedback aka differentiating/integrating comes the
roots of language ;-) (add to that the qualitative bounding of the number
line through the concepts of positive/negative and we have a mathematics
that works inwards to map 'out there'.
All of this is indicative of self-referencing at work in the derivation of
meaning where that referencing is rooted in differentiating/integrating aka
positive/negative feedback dynamics.
