From Computing to AI. Logical, Mathematical, Technical, and Philosophical Foundations

Logical, Mathematical, Technical, and Philosophical Foundations

Technical-practical limits of today's computers and AI depend on the theoretical foundation of digital computability. On the basis of digital computability, AI was initially oriented towards the logical reasoning of symbolic logic. Statistical learning from big data led  to machine learning, which dominates the techno-economic breakthroughs of AI today. Some limits of digital computability, decidability and solvability of problems can be theoretically overcome beyond Turing computability. Novel analog computer architectures oriented towards the human brain enable their technical- practical realization. An extension to hybrid AI is requested for, combining digital, analog and quantum computing in neuromorphic computing structures. These tendencies of research and innovation demonstrate that we need more integrated research in the foundations of logic, mathematics, physics, engineering sciences, cognitive science, and philosophy.
