Titel: Toward Perception Based Computing
We discuss basic notions of Perception Based Computing (PBC). Perception is characterized by sensory measurements and ability to apply them to reason about satisfiability of complex vague concepts used, e.g., as guards for actions or invariants to be preserved by agents. Such reasoning is often referred as adaptive judgment. Vague concepts can be approximated on the basis of sensory attributes rather than defined exactly. Approximations usually need to be induced by using hierarchical modeling. Computations require interactions between granules of different complexity, such as elementary sensory granules, granules representing components of agent states, or complex granules representing classifiers that approximate concepts. We base our approach to interactive granular computations on generalized information systems and rough sets. We show that such systems can be used for modeling advanced forms of interactions in hierarchical modeling. Unfortunately, discovery of structures for hierarchical modeling is still a challenge. On the other hand, it is often possible to acquire or approximate them from domain knowledge. It should be also possible to submit hypotheses about domain knowledge to be checked semi-automatically. Given appropriate hierarchical structures, it becomes feasible to perform adaptive judgment, starting from sensory measurements and ending with conclusions about satisfiability degrees of vague target guards. We discuss domain ontology approximation and applications related to different domains.
