The Context.

  1. To build human-level intelligence system, we need AI systems with a reasoning layer along with statistical ML, model-blind deep learning. (See, e.g. Field Note #150)
  2. Rich AI system should be semantically sound, explainable, and trustworthy
  3. Current AI paradigm skews heavily toward statistical ML, but "one would be misguided to conflate all of machine learning or dismiss the role of symbolic logic, which remains the most powerful and adequate representation for the analysis of computational systems." (p. 14, emphasis added)
  4. Neurosymbolic AI has the potential to unify learning and reasoning
