IPFW professor wins grant for artificial intelligence work

The Air Force Office of Scientific Research is funding research on artificial intelligence and robotics at a local Analogical Constructivism and Reasoning Lab. The lab at Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne is run by John Licato, an assistant professor of computer science there and a recipient of a 2016 Air Force Young Investigator Research Program award. He is getting $360,000 over a three-year period to support work related to his “Active Formalization Through Analogico-Deductive Reasoning” funding proposal. The active formalization Licato is studying relates to the creation of robots that use the anological reasoning of computers, but “can reason beyond the formalizations they are initially given,” he said in a statement. “Artificially intelligent systems are often given a set of rules and symbols to reason over. But human…
