  3. 3. 3 Imagine unleashing Watson in the physical world. Give it eyes, ears, and touch, then let it act in that world with hands and feet and a face, not just as an action of force but also as an action of influence. This is embodied cognition: by placing the cognitive power of Watson in a robot, in an avatar, an object in your hand, or even in the walls of an operating room, conference room, or spacecraft, we take Watson's ability to understand and reason and draw it closer to the natural ways in which humans live and work. In so doing, we augment individual human senses and abilities, giving Watson the ability see a patient's complete medical condition, feel the flow of a supply chain, or orchestrate the tasks in a day in the life of an individual. Grady Booch – Embodied Cognition

Embodied Conversation It’s good to see you again, Sandia! Learning I’ve just picked up a fault in the AE35 unit. Devices In what room was Alyssa working yesterday? Knowledge Representation

  9. 9. Understand them? § Observe Them: Predictable and Auditable? – BCS: Sometimes predictable and auditable (natural, evolved, experiences, free will) – DCS: Mostly predictable and auditable (artificial, designed, algorithms, blockchain) § Hardware: – BCS: Brain-based (neurons) – DCS: Microprocessor-based (transistors) § Software: – BCS: (People and Experiences) Evolution & Psychology, Cognitive Science – DCS: (Machines and Algorithms) Design & Engineering, Computer Science § Data, Experience, Transformation? – BCS & DCS: External environment & sensing (Data), Internal processes, communications, storage (Information & experience), Philosophy of life, values (Transformation)
