Paul's Research



After I got my doctorate in AI from the University of Minnesota in 1991, I got distracted by a career in supercomputing. Now that I'm retired I am pursuing some ideas that have germinated over the last couple of decades. I have some notions about what "self-aware" software could be and how one might begin to make progress toward that using things like fuzzy conceptual graphs. As I write something intelligible I'll post it on my papers page: click here. There are three there right now.

I'm also something of an economics junky; trying to figure out why most economists are so bad at predicting what will happen when the government does various things. It seems to me that you should be able to simulate the economy using fuzzy logic operations to represent the economic policies of each sector of the economy.
