AI vs AI: intelligence amplification with Decisional DNA and its extension to


The rapidly evolving Cognitive Society of the 21st Century together with imminent cyber revolution of Industry 4.0 needs increasingly smarter and abler decision-making enhancement and explainability to make this evolvement sustainable and human-acceptable. We address this global challenge by proposing intelligence amplification with Decisional DNA and its extension into, which could provide decision-makers with the tools to choose the best outcomes for cognitive society that would promote sustainability, wellbeing, and security to individuals and populations. In nature, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms. The idea behind our vision is to develop an artificial system, an architecture that would support discovering, adding, storing, improving and sharing information and knowledge among agents and organisations through experience. We propose a novel Knowledge Representation (KR) approach in which experiential knowledge is represented by Set of Experience (SOE), and is carried into the future by Decisional DNA (DDNA). The DDNA extension into has enormous and exciting potential of opening entirely new and so far not conceptually conceived horizons in developing and using collective intelligence.

Edward Szczerbicki


Edward Szczerbicki has had very extensive experience in the area of intelligent systems development over an uninterrupted 40-year period, 30 years of which he spent in the top information science research centres in the USA, UK, Australia, and Germany. In this area, he contributed to the understanding of information and knowledge management/engineering in complex systems operating in changing environments characterised by informational uncertainties. He has published over 400 refereed papers which explore the importance and power of experiential knowledge in intelligence augmentation. His academic experience includes ongoing and visiting positions with Gdansk University of Technology, Gdansk, Poland; Strathclyde University, Glasgow, Scotland; The University of Iowa, Iowa City, USA; University of California, Berkeley, USA; Hannover University, Hannover, Germany; Chengdu University of IT, Chengdu, China; INSA Rouen Normandie, Rouen, France; TU Berlin, Germany; and The University of Newcastle, Newcastle, Australia.
