Philosophy of Cognitive Science
|Location||Austin, Texas, United States|
For the last 35 years, our 50-person team has been building Cyc, the world’s only AI that deeply understands what it’s reasoning about (as opposed to what everyone else today calls “AI”: statistical machine learning and limited-logic knowledge-graph searching). Human-level Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) only needs to be created once. Now that we are nearing our goal, would you like to be part of our team that pushes across the finish line? As an Ontological Engineer, you will find and fill gaps in Cyc’s knowledge about common sense, context, and how the world works. You must be exceptionally good at introspecting and articulating what you know and why you believe it. You must also be able to express those things formally as sentences in predicate calculus, the representation language that our AI understands. You should enjoy the challenge of thinking about multiple reasoning paths by which an answer could have been reached and engaging in pro-con reasoning.
