[ba-unrev-talk] Inquiry Driven Systems

At my blog: http://www.nexist.org/wiki/User0Blog
I mention something about what Jon Awbrey is working on: Prospects for 
Inquiry Driven Systems.
His abstract:
"In briefest terms my project is to develop mutual applications of systems 
theory and artificial intelligence to each other. In the current phase of 
investigation I am taking a standpoint in systems theory, working to extend 
its concepts and methods to cover increasingly interesting classes of 
intelligent systems. A natural side-project is directed toward improving 
the economy of effort by unifying a selection of tools being used in these 
two fields. My instrumental focus is placed on integrating the methods of 
differential geometry with the techniques of logic programming. I will 
attempt to embody this project in the form of computer-implemented 
connections between geometric dynamics and logical AI, and I will measure 
its success by the extent and usefulness of this realization. "    (01)

NexistWiki, and, I think, the entirety of the OHS vision, are about Inquiry 
Driven Systems.  All of Jon's contributions to http://www.nexist.org/wiki/ 
are, I think, of great value to Unrev.    (02)

With luck, I think his ideas will show up in improvements to the NexistWiki 
experiment.    (03)
