Mission and Flagship Research

International Institute of Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing (I2CICC) is an academic association for advanced research in contemporary and transdisciplinary fields across sciences of intelligence, computer, information, brain, cognition, knowledge, linguistics, data, and systems.


The mission of I2CICC is to promote collaborative research in Cognitive Informatics (CI) and Cognitive Computing (CC) as a general AI (GAI) theory, to establish a repository of latest research discoveries, and to strengthen applications of CI/CC paradigms in the AI and IT industries. I2CICC focuses not only on basic research and underpinning intelligent mathematics (IM), but also on their applications in industries, education, health care, societies and humanities.


The advanced research of I2CICC has created a contemporary field of CI/CC/IM that leads to a theoretical framework for augmenting both human wisdom and machines' autonomous capability from data, information, knowledge to intelligence. It has paved a way for developing the next generation of cognitive computers inspired by the brain. The frontier work of I2CICC has been recognized as world top 10 by Google Scholar and world top 2.5% by Research Gate.

Cognitive Informatics (CI) is a transdisciplinary field that studies the internal information processing mechanisms of the brain, the underlying abstract intelligence (aI) theories and denotational mathematics, and their engineering applications in cognitive computing, computational intelligence, and cognitive systems.

Cognitive Computing (CC) is a cutting-edge paradigm of intelligent computing methodologies and systems based on cognitive informatics, which implements computational intelligence by autonomous inferences and perceptions mimicking the mechanisms of the brain. CI and CC not only synergize theories of modern information science, computer science, communication theories, AI, cybernetics, computational intelligence, cognitive science, intelligence science, neuropsychology, brain science, systems science, software science, knowledge science, cognitive robots, cognitive linguistics, and life science, but also promote novel applications in cognitive computers, cognitive communications, computational intelligence, cognitive robots, cognitive systems, and the AI, IT, and software industries.

Intelligent Mathematics (IM) is a category of contemporary denotational mathematics extending classic analytic mathematics as defined in the domain of real numbers (R) to that of hyperstructures (H). Mathematics is the most fundamental and indispensable abstraction means underpinned almost all science and engineering disciplines. IM represents a collection of novel mathematical structures that formalizes rigorous expressions and manipulations on complex entities in sciences, linguistics, knowledge representation, and machine intelligence generation. Paradigms of IM encompass AI inference algebra, concept algebra, semantic algebra, real-time process algebra (RTPA), system algebra, big data algebra, image frame algebra, relation algebra, and causal probability, etc.
