Computational linguistics (or natural-language processing) and knowledge representation and reasoning are core areas of classical artificial intelligence (AI)—the computational understanding of human-level cognitive abilities. Knowledge representation and reasoning is the study of techniques for representing and reasoning about the information used by an AI program. Research at Buffalo is concerned with the abilities that underlie natural-language use, reasoning, and rational acting. We are interested in discovering how to build, and then actually building, a computerized rational agent—a computer system that can (1) converse in English about various everyday and specialized topics, (2) be taught about such subjects by instruction carried out in English, possibly with the aid of gestures, drawings, and diagrams, and (3) reason about those subjects, discuss them with humans, and perform as instructed.
CSE students gather in the Davis Atrium to demonstrate their semesterly capstone projects and current research projects.
