  • DGCC: A Case for Integration of Brain Cognition and Intelligence Computation

    Both human brain and computer (electronic brain) could process data and do some cognition and computation tasks. Is the cognition of human brain equal to the computation of computer? It is obviously not. In this talk, the relationships of brain cognition models and intelligence computation models are summarized into four different types, that is, human brain cognition inspired intelligence computation (BCIIC), intelligence computation without human brain cognition (ICOBC), intelligence computation assisted human brain cognition (ICABC), and the integration of human brain cognition and intelligence computation (BC&IC). There are three paradigms in traditional artificial intelligence (AI) studies, that is, symbolism AI, connectionism AI, and behaviorism AI. The physical symbol system hypothesis is used in the symbolism AI. Human brain cognition is taken as a kind of symbolic processing, and the processes of human thinking are computed by symbol in the symbolism AI [1,2]. The connectionism AI relies on the bionics to simulate human brain. In the connectionism AI, neuron is taken as the basic unite of human thinking, and the intelligence is taken as the result of interconnected neurons competition and collaboration [3,4]. In the behaviorism AI, intelligence depends on the perception and behavior, “Perception-action” model is used, and intelligence may not require knowledge, knowledge representation and knowledge reasoning [5]. The symbolism AI and connectionism AI are two different types of human brain cognition inspired intelligence computation, while the behaviorism AI is a representative case of intelligence computation without human brain cognition. Usually, AI researchers get some inspiration from human brain cognition in their studies. On the other way, intelligence computation could also assist human brain cognition studies. The bidirectional cognitive computing model (BCC) is such a case. It studies the bidirectional transformations between the intension and extension of a concept. It is used to simulate some human brain cognition tasks such as learning and recognition [6,7]. Cognitive computing is one of the core fields of artificial intelligence [8,9]. Data-driven granular cognitive computing (DGCC) is an example of the integration of human brain cognition and intelligence computation [10,11]. It takes data as a special kind of knowledge expressed in the lowest granularity level of a multiple granularity space. It integrates two contradictory mechanisms, namely, the human's cognition mechanism of ``global precedence'' which is a cognition process of ``from coarser to finer'' and the information processing mechanism of machine learning systems which is ``from finer to coarser'', in a multiple granularity space. It is data-driven cognitive computing model. The integration of human brain cognition and intelligence computation would be an important research topic of artificial intelligence. Some scientific research issues of the integration of human brain cognition and intelligence computation are discussed based on DGCC.

  • The neural basis of Chinese, English and graphics cognition: An fMRI study of healthy Chinese subjects

    With growing evidence from patient and neuroimaging studies, there are lots of differences between the neural mechanisms of Chinese and English cognition. Specifically, previous researches showed a clear correlation between the cognition of Chinese and graphics. The present study aimed to explore the similarity and difference of neural mechanism of Chinese, English and graphics during visual processing with functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). The experimental materials adopted in the study were three kinds of representation icons representing the same object with different visual features, which refer to Chinese character, English word and line drawing of the same animal or plant, and a white attention dot with black background was used as control material. In the results, we demonstrated differential cortical representations of English cognition, Chinese characters cognition and graphics cognition.

  • Recent Development of Human-Robot Natural Interaction in Spatial Cognition Tasks

    Spatial cognition is a typical human cognitive activity. It is attractive that human can interact with the robot naturally and efficiently in the task of spatial cognition. And so many of scientists have thrown themselves into the research of that great thing. This paper systematically summarized the related work of human-robot natural interaction in spatial cognition tasks. We arranged this paper in two parts, the analysis of spatial cognition tasks and cognition modeling respectively. And the progress of cognitive architecture was highlighted here. In addition, we studied how to realize the human-robot natural interaction through combining the natural interaction technologies and cognitive modeling. And we proposed a design framework of human-robot spatial cognition interaction system based on ACT-R theory. In the end, we put forward our prospect and discussion about this research area. Our work mainly aims at making a contribution to realizing human-robot natural interaction in spatial cognition tasks.

  • High-resolution PolSAR image interpretation based on human images cognition mechanism

    Compared to traditional SAR, high-resolution PolSAR not only can provide texture and geometry information, but also can provide polarimetric information, which have been used extensively for various surface features recognition. Traditional methods only based on images characteristics which don't apply to high-resolution PolSAR images interpretation, causing the algorithm redundancy and low recognition rate. However, human's image cognition system is an efficient and intelligent image processing system, which nothing can be comparable to in targets recognition. Based on human image cognition mechanism, a new method for features recognition in PolSAR images is proposed in this paper to overcome above shortcomings. The proposed method utilizes hierarchical cognition model to identify different features: the first layer is visual cognition, the second layer is logical cognition and the third layer is psychology cognition. Image segmentation and visual sensitive features extraction and integration are applied in visual cognition to derive preliminary recognition results. Based on the results from first procedure, fuzzy logic theory and Neural Network Model are both utilized in logical cognition. Background characteristics are utilized to identify features precisely in psychology cognition. The whole cognitive procedure is under the guidance of a priori knowledge, which is represented in accordance with production rules. Experiments are conducted over the EMISAR L-band PolSAR data and the E-SAR L-band PolSAR data. The results show that the proposed method can effectively and precisely identify different features in PolSAR images.

  • Research on the terrain cognition in small-scale environment

    Although the terrain cognition of small-scale environment plays an important role in perception of geographical space, few studies have explored this issue. This study focus on the terrain cognition and its role and psychological mechanism in small-scale environment by adopting the Pukou pre- campus in Nanjing University as studying area. The survey interviewed 644 freshmen for two years. Then the data was analyzed by using the coding method of the geographical elements, spatial analysis and multi-source data processing methods. Finally, the article is concluded as follows: 1) The cognition of undulating terrain can contribute to the formation of three- dimensional environmental representation and it is important image of edges and landmarks of wayfinding; 3)The spatial extent and characteristics of terrain cognition of subjects is same as actual ones and the elevation difference associated with daily activity space for the reference points are generally cognized by the participants. 4) The relative elevation, not height above sea level, is being encoded by human-being, even if they have the knowledge of the height above sea level.

  • Building cognition method based on human images cognition mechanism in high resolution PolSAR images

    PolSAR images have been used extensively for various surface features recognition and buildings recognition is an important research topic of PolSAR image interpretation. Traditional methods are only based on PolSAR image characteristics and lack subjective knowledge of human image cognition, making low target recognition rate and algorithm redundancy. To overcome this shortcoming, based on human image cognition mechanism, a new method for buildings recognition in PolSAR images is proposed in this paper. The proposed method utilizes hierarchical cognition model to identify buildings: the first layer is visual cognition and the second layer is logical cognition. In visual cognition, visual sensitive features are extracted and integrated under the guidance of a priori knowledge to derive preliminary recognition results. In logical cognition, based on the results from first process, fuzzy logic theory and Neural Network Model are both utilized to identify buildings precisely. The whole cognition procedure is guided by the knowledge, which is represented in accordance with production rules. Experiments are conducted over the EMISAR L-band PolSAR data, the E-SAR L-band PolSAR data and Convair-SAR C-band PolSAR data. The results show that the proposed method can identify buildings from PolSAR images effectively and precisely.

  • The Influence Factors on Empirical Knowledge Accumulation of Novice Engineers Based on Complex Cognition Theory

    Based on the complex cognition theory, the multiple influencing factors of empirical knowledge accumulation in the process of novice engineers' solving complex problems are presented and analyzed, such as: problem context, individual emotion, and individual cognition factors. An experiment originated from a real world engineering design problem is used to illustrate the accumulation process of novice engineers' empirical knowledge. Two questionnaires are used to test the influencing factors. Through statistics analysis and path analysis, the effects and relations of influencing factors in empirical knowledge accumulation of novice engineers are found. These results will help to capture and accumulate empirical knowledge faster for novice engineers.

  • Study on the Difference of Reaching Cognition Between the Real and the Virtual Environment Using HMD and its Compensation

    The purposes of this research are to investigate the information necessary for cognition of the VR environment using “Reaching” and to examine how to compensate the difference of cognition between the real and the VR environment. Therefore, this research conducts a task in VR to acquire cognition with the VR environment (Cognitive acquisition task) first. This task is one for a subject to be acclimated to VR environment. The important thing is that the subject's arms and hands and their actions are shown in VR environment using CG. Second, comparative experiment using Reaching is conducted. Cognitive acquisition task is conducted using simple action task related to reaching, such as stacking blocks and rolling spheres. In Reaching experiment, first, a subject estimate whether the subject can grasp a cylinder placed in front of the subject by just stretching arms in thought. After that, the subject grabs the cylinder and places it as far as possible. The results are investigated in the real and the virtual environment. In the real, it has been found that the longest distance to an object for a person to decide to be able to reach for and grab the object (CDDG) is about 1.1 times as long as the longest distance where a person actually can reach for grabbing the object (CRDG). The previous studies have shown that the ratio of CDDG and CRDG in VR is not 1.1 and its compensation is difficult. However, as a result of this research experiment, CDDGs in this research were the same value in the real and the VR environment. And in the case of VR with reduced environmental information, CDDG in VR was different from one in real. As the result, it was suggested that the difference in cognition could be compensated by including the necessary and sufficient environmental and user's information (CG model of user's body and user's movement) and an appropriate cognition could be realized even in the current VR environment.
