Intelligent machines are knowledge systems with unique knowledge structure and function. In this paper, we discuss issues including the characteristics and forms of machine knowledge, the relationship between knowledge and human cognition, and the approach to acquire machine knowledge. These issues are of great significance to the development of artificial intelligence.

Abstract

Intelligent machines are knowledge systems with unique knowledge structure and function. In this paper, we discuss issues including the characteristics and forms of machine knowledge, the relationship between knowledge and human cognition, and the approach to acquire machine knowledge. These issues are of great significance to the development of artificial intelligence.
