Sample text

Loan word may have different contexts—it may range from personal loan to housing and education loan. If we talk about a ball it may mean a different thing when talking about cricket, when talking about football, when talking about hockey or even when talking about dance. The context changes meaning and sometimes creates new meanings. But it is not limited to that, context even changes the relationships and come in front in new form. The relationship between ball and bat is different in case of different games.

These relationships can change even during action sequence or even while intelligent agent is deliberating. Sometimes these relationships exist with other relationships or with reference to action. Sometimes the actions at generic level are same though these are overloaded with parameters as per context. Is mapping these actions intelligently with different object is learning? Can that mapping itself be intelligence? Is dealing with complexity called intelligence? There are many such questions unanswered.

Concepts like crowdsourcing, collective learning, and collaborative decisionmaking can be used effectively in systemic machine learning. Systemic learning can be thought of consisting of three important learning aspects: 1. Cognitive acquisition 2. Coordination among subsystems 3. Collaboration. Cognitive acquisition collects the information about different parts of system. It can come in the form of crowdsourcing. Here crowd may be set of intelligent agents, or set of individuals or set of sensors connected to some intelligent collaborators.
