Re: Richard J. Lipton • The Future Of Mathematics? • Is The End Near? Re: “Proofs Are Not As Important As Discoveries” (PANAIAD). Conjecture and Discovery fall under the heading of Abductive Inference (AI’s missing grape). About which more when I pull … Continue reading

Re: Ontolog Forum • Michael DeBellis Questions about Abduction in AI and Computer Science raised in the Ontolog Forum prompted me to look up previous discussions tracing the integral relationship among information, inquiry, and the three types of inference.  Here’s … Continue reading

Re: Artem Kaznatcheev • Reductionism : To Computer Science From Philosophy The sense of reduction operative in complexity theory has its roots in Aristotle’s απαγωγη, variously translated as abduction or reduction and sometimes glossed as retroduction by C.S. Peirce.  See my … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Jon Alan Schmidt Peirce’s categories are best viewed as categories of relations.  To a first approximation, firstness, secondness, thirdness are simply what all monadic, dyadic, triadic relations, respectively, have in common.  At a second approximation, we … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Jerry Rhee • Tom Gollier • Edwina Taborsky Given a working hypothesis, as abduced in the previous post, the next phase of inquiry uses deductive inference to expand the implied consequences of the abductive hypothesis, with … Continue reading
