Credit: Shutterstock/Blue Island Austrian researchers are working to advance the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and equip robots with common sense. Graz University of Technology researcher Gerald Steinbauer has developed a deduction mechanism that enables robots to detect errors and repair their belief system accordingly. “We’ve used so-called situation calculus to model deductions in a logic language that can describe the actions carried out by a given agent and their effects,” Steinbauer says. The method involves continuously creating automatic diagnoses by observing where the beliefs of the robot no longer align with the prevailing situation. The researchers found situation calculus can be used both for monitoring and diagnostic…
