The profession of ITVoices of computing

Peter J. Denning
2008 Communications of the ACM  
Voices of Computing (August 2008) The choir of engineers, mathematicians, and scientists who make up the bulk of our field better represents computing than the solo voice of the programmer.  ...  The choir of engineers, mathematicians, and scientists who make up the bulk of our field better represents computing than the solo voice of the programmer.  ...  You know, programming is the most fundamental part of computer science. No computer can run without a program. I enable everything else in computing. I have written some history-changing programs.  ...

Computers and the nature of man: a historian's perspective on controversies about artificial intelligence

Judith V. Grabiner
1986 Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society  
Today computer scientists have devised programs that solve problems which, if solved by people, would seem to require intelligent thought.  ...  As we shall see, the real controversy about artificial intelhgence (AI) is not about the nature of computers and programs; it is about the nature of man.  ...  In particular, in discovering Black's law, the program invents a new theoretical term-one which Black, too, invented, and which we now call specific heat 2 [4, 2 Described at greatest length in [4, pp  ...

Why Teaching Informatics in Schools Is as Important as Teaching Mathematics and Natural Sciences [chapter]

Juraj Hromkovič, Björn Steffen
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we aim to do more than arguing that informatics is a fascinating scientific discipline with interesting applications in almost all areas of everyday life.  ...  Does the teaching of informatics enrich education in ways other subjects cannot or do not sufficiently contribute?  ...  But additionally, computer scientists do not only discover an efficient way of solving it, but they also implement the discovered method and provide a product (program) for solving problems of this kind  ...

BACON.5: The Discovery of Conservation Laws

Pat Langley, Gary L. Bradshaw, Herbert A. Simon
1981 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
BACON.5 is a program that discovers empirical laws. The program represents information at varying levels of description, with higher levels summarizing the levels below them.  ...  Thus, BACON.S'S heuristics appear to be general mechanisms applicable to discovery in diverse domains.  ...  In this way, the symmetrical laws so common in physics can be easily discovered.  ...

Discovering universal scaling laws in 3D printing of metals with genetic programming and dimensional analysis [article]

Zhengtao Gan, Orion L. Kafka, Niranjan Parab, Cang Zhao, Olle Heinonen, Tao Sun, Wing Liu
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We leverage dimensional analysis and genetic programming (a type of machine learning) to discover two strikingly simple but universal scaling laws, which remain accurate for different materials, processing  ...  for the critical issues in metal 3D printing.  ...  Our newly discovered two-dimensional pattern (scaling law) for porosity in 3D printing includes two terms and a constant (Fig. 4) .  ...

Artificial Intelligence Modelling: Data Driven and Theory Driven Approaches [chapter]

Klaus Manhart
1996 Social Science Microsimulation  
In the case of the theory driven approach, knowledge based modelling allows the translation of nearly any qualitative theory into a symbolic program in order to discover new conclusions or to investigate  ...  With the data driven approach, an attempt is made to replicate empirical data with generate and test programs as well as possible and, in this way, to discover theoretical mechanisms inductively.  ...  Under the label "machine learning", computers are programmed to discover empirical laws from data (Langley et al 1987; Slezak 1989) .  ...
