Artificial Intelligence and Molecular Biology

Lawrence Hunter

The twin goals of artificial intelligence research are to understand the computational mechanisms underlying human-like thought and behavior, and to design and synthesize comparable machines. Despite their inherent generality, these goals are best served by decomposing this overwhelmingly complex task into more tractable subproblems, often addressing quite specific behaviors or cognitive abilities. These decompositions generate the collection of tasks and domains that defines AI research at a particular point in time.
