Abstract

Semantic intelligence is an exclusive for the intelligent complex systems way of response to an ever-changing environment. Its major distinctive property is autonomous comprehension and creation of information. Another exclusive property of semantic intelligence is autonomous discrimination between true and false statements. The semantic intelligence naturally arises in the setting of concept of boundedness where it commences from highly non-trivial interplay between structural and functional properties of a complex system. The major generic property of that interplay is that it renders the relation between structural and functional properties to be non-recursive. In result this renders the efficiency of semantic intelligence to be provided by efficiency of hierarchical self-organization of a complex system prior to the efficiency of software and to the speed of hardware.

Background

Before presenting the basic principles of the concept of boundedness let us remind the notion of a complex system and the major characteristics of their behavior. Let us start with the notion of a complex system: it is how parts of a system are organized so that the system behaves as a single object and how it interacts with its environment. Thus the notion of a complex system encompasses an enormous variety of systems ranging from physical ones such as quasar pulsations, to biological such as DNA sequences, to social ones such as financial time series.

Key Terms in this Chapter

Second Law: One of the most fundamental laws in physics.

Survival of the Fittest: A theory of evolution grounded on the assumption that for any given change in the environment the best suited structure of an object provides the greatest advantage in performance. This assumption is explicit outcome of the assumption that the relations between structure and functionality are expressed by recursive means only.

Algorithmic Intelligence: Exclusive for the formal logic way of “response” to an input.

Concept of Boundedness: A new explanatory paradigm, put forward by the author, aimed towards explanation of the behavior of the complex systems behavior.

Non-Recursive Relation: Relation that cannot be expressed in a closed form or by means of finite step algorithms.

Semantic Intelligence: Semantic intelligence is an exclusive for the intelligent complex systems way of response to non-predetermined and non-specified ever-changing environment. Its major distinctive property is autonomous comprehension and creation of information. Another exclusive property of semantic intelligence is autonomous discrimination between true and false statements.
