Any knowledge is as old as its date revealed. The idea of editing a book as a planet in the galaxy of AI will make you as old as AI and as young as what has been and is being published today.
What is of concern in this contemporary life, at the intellectual level, where machine -the digital in specific- governs the manner by which the different aspects of human perceptions are applied in a given field is to enhance human’s comprehension. On one to one basis, not even a temporary success will be registered in this realm, unless the problem is analyzed in a multi-dimensional and multi aspect sense. Books like this provide the interested readers in academic world different access channels, found so far, in having a broader perspective on the subjects of the matter(s) in AI. Many literary packages, each one better than the previous ones, are published in order to quench this never ending quest.
The objective of research on the constituent theme here is to promote their advances made towards accomplishments. In this multi-disciplinary package, the authors seek to present their innovative views on their themes of interest in this realm; consequently, pronouncing a general statement would be wrong, and for not committing this wrong I would suffice by bulleting the content of each one of the chapters presented to provide a panorama of what is defined and expected in Simulation, Interaction with humans, and Application categories:
Simulation of intelligent behavior
An individualized view on schools of artificial intelligence
The vast span of dealing with incomplete information in automated negotiation
Reverse perception effect on cognition leading to stimulated behavior
Lack of lexicon-based sentiment analysis in Persian language
Regressive retrospect counter-intuitive view of ethics, autonomy and cooperation of agents
Minimizing estimation error through polynomial utility function
Prediction in the world of finance
The role of stochastic geometry in multi-object filters
Multi-agent architecture applied in parallel process Holonic systems
Robot-assisted language learning alternate to CALL and MALL
The authors here challenge the theoretical meta-problems that manipulate the existing practical problems
This book could not have been published without the substantial contribution of many interested and involved in this endeavor. I wish to express my cordial gratitude to the enthusiastic researchers for their significant contribution in the chapters, anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments, Mr. Haidouk Vartevan, a freelance proofreader and the editorial staffs and partners of Bentham Science Publishers, especially Ms. Fariya Zulfiqar, Publications Assistant Manager, for their kind cooperation.
It is a pride to have the Foreword of this eBook written by Dr. Michael N. Huhns, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Computer Science and Engineering.
