Cognition is not Computation: Evolution is not Optimisation

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

An overview is given of the role and relevance of Artificial Neural Nets (ANNs) as control systems for autonomous agents. Though ANNs can be used as computational input/output devices, cognition requires not this but rather some method of implementing dynamical systems. A wider class of ANNs incorporating temporal dynamics and feedback is presented as one way to achieve this. These are difficult to design and evolutionary approaches are a possible approach. Since
evolving complex robot controllers inevitably takes a long time, one can not aff ord to start afresh with each new problem, and an incremental adaptation approach will be necessary in the long term. This means that standard o ff-the-shelf optimising genetic algorithms are not appropriate unless adjusted to their new role.

Transition Consciousness

This post is about how we understand complexity, and how we can change this understanding of complexity. I have previously written about the 2010 IBM survey on complexity – 1500 face-to-face interviews—the largest known study of its kind with CEOs from companies of all sizes across 60 countries, representing 33 industries.

Previously, CEOs have consistently identified change as their most pressing challenge. Today, CEOs are telling us that the complexity of operating in an increasingly volatile and uncertain world is their primary challenge. And, a surprising number of them told us that they feel ill-equipped to succeed in this drastically different world.

It is hardly surprising that CEOs feel ill-equiped to deal with complexity, when it is not a subject taught at school. Indeed, Complexity Science is still young as a discipline and there is no single coherent body of work which we can point to and say that this, this…
