The world population profile is ageing, with improved social and welfare provision and health care (both state and NGO) and technological, political and cultural changes across authoritarian and democratic societies. The combination of greater longevity and lower fertility is prompting projections that the percentage of older people (over 65) will almost double by 2050.
As programmable and networked computers move into the world with increasingly complex sensing systems, traditional questions about machine intelligence cease to be very useful to understand and conceptualize these developments. This talk will focus on cognition rather than intelligence and will compare the perspectives of biosemiotics on sign systems in biological organisms with the sensing capabilities of artificial cognitive systems.
