Tentacular Artificial Intelligence


Tentacular AI (TAI) enables artificial agents to problem-solve in ways that exploit the true potential of the Internet (I), the Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing, and cyberspace. These agents achieve a ubiquitous problem-solving power by stretching their “tentacles’’ across heterogenous environments, sensors, effectors, and machines covering Earth and — increasingly — outer space. Six specific properties distinguish TAI agents; one of the six is that all offered solutions are accompanied by an explanation, justification, and certification of safety and/or ethical/legal correctness. When the sixth property (which asserts that the problem-solving leverages I/IoT etc.) is dropped, but the remaining five affirmed, the result is a distinctive approach to multi-robot/AI problem solving.
