High-Intelligence & Decision Research Group (HID), 
  The contribution to the SOPHOCLES Project [ EUREKA >ITEA> MIURST> ENEA]


 Project Objectives  Method   Cog-Architecture  HID-Research group
The objective of  the Cog-SOPHOCLES is an experimental (prototype-based) elaboration and validation of a methodology and architecture for the development of user's Intelligent Advisor 
(Cognitive Intelligent Interactions Manager). 
It should provide an intelligent support for high performance virtual e-Design for Systems-On-Chip.

CIIM as anIntelligent Advisoris a cognitive decision-support module of  the Virtual Cyber Enterprise  being developed in frame of the SOPHOCLES (System level develOpment Platform based on HeterOgeneous models and Concurrent Languages for System applications  implementation).ULab SOHOCLES Page 
Expected duration of the project 2001-2003.

NEWS:For the reason of the current Italian government Scientific Research strategy, the Italian partners of SOPHOCLES did not receive yet necessary funds for its continuation (Atti Ministeriali) and, at present, this HID's project activity will be continued in frame of other RTD projects.

An integrated approach of:
 - Socio-Cognitive Engineering
 -  the TOGAknowledge
    ordering meta-theory, 
 -  AI & cognitive technologies
 -  advanced Software 

- The IPK ( Information, Preferences,Knowledge)cognitive architecture framework  with structural intelligence

Cog-SOPH Strategic lines

Our Long-term Research Goal: 
Research on Intelligence for Intelligence Building

(Adam Maria Gadomski - coordinator)

                  "The Law of Accelerating Returns shows that by 2019 a $1,000 personal computer will have the 
                          processing power of the human brain--20 million billion calculations per second. "
                         "A frequent criticism of predictions is that they rely on an unjustified extrapolation of current trends, 
                          without considering the forces that may alter those trends." [Ray Kurzweil, see link below]
