Message From Chuan Zhao------------------------------------------------------------ DearKrassimir and FIS Colleagues, Iam Chuan Zhao. I am teaching in the Department of Computer Science andTechnology, Chengdu University of Technology, China. I am an associateProfessor, director. My interesting fields are FIS, foundation of AI, mathematicsand Universal Logic, etc. I joined the BeijingFIS2010 and my speech is on Natural Language Understanding. Iagree with your two important characteristics of “background to Modern Science”.And want echo with you in these two aspects. 1. The freedom tomake experiments. Now we must know that experiments of InformationScience or Intelligence Science should be very different and unusual withgeneral kinds in general laboratories. They should be wonderful and free. Forexample I joined a lecture of Prof. Denis Mair, Nov. 7, 2010. He is a sinologistand poet. It was the first lecture of International Yi Lecture Theater. The lecturetook about his translation for a Chinese, Yi poet’s poem book to English. Yi isa minority of China.Of course his translate is from Chinese to English. But these are two biglanguages! Why I joined it during heavy scientific works? In fact I was there withina intelligent scholar purpose: how strong and complex intelligence he has andwhat kinds of wonderful phenomena should happen during his translation betweentwo big languages, even concert the third language, such as Yi (the Yi poem hasbeen translated to Chinese.). Yes, really he took about many cognitive points,of course are literature point the same. For example he mentioned a coreconcept Streak. He said few yearsago in American a period he feel some trouble and a Chinese poet Aku visitedhe, he said a Yi proverb: “the streak of Tagore is up the body and the streakin human is in heart.” And this helped him gained some inspiration to out thetrouble. Now let us ask: what is the trouble of a poet? Why a proverb can helphim? What are they thinking? And men of letters worry about sometime seminalwith scientists? In the end of Main’s lecture Iasked a question: “I am a scholar of computer, I am very interesting with theintelligence during your translation; You have studied biology - the streak ofscience, what is the effect with your social study and write?” Hislecture excite me to write a poem On Streak, because it is interesting to me. Hewelcome I have a try: he said I wish read lines from your poem with scienceview. Yes, during the lines one day I put into two nice conclusions for themails of our FIS. First roughly in English as: “this autumn / I joined an excellentconference of sending out Declaration and Call / the Foundation of InformationScience / the list mails as a forum in net in sky is running / the sentence AIgor say let me think of the unfinished On Streak / he said “ information isheterogeneity stable for some definite time.” / and Bateson: / “information isthe difference that makes difference” / yes, Difference! / Difference! Is thebeginning and end of streak / see, here poet and science worry about the same! ““my special science study”Now I wrote thepoem and send to him and I am waiting for his feedback. En- this is a snow andperhaps fast examination. I believe that howdeep the break happened and how deep the connection should happen; How muchpain the divide release and how many wonderful the integrity should cause. 2. The freedom towork together with scientists, which belongto other “monastery”. This let methink of my Chengdu Though Meeting. Thisidea formed at 2006. 2007 the Second Universal Logic Conference held in Xi-an, China. I designeda set postcard as gift to every participant. I wrote this idea of ChengduThought Meeting on the cover of the set of card. It is: “Chuan Zhao has a wish:stage Chengdu Thought Meeting. People shall deeper and pure exchange thoughts;instruct orient thoughts and approach the formalization with science system;have freer and more interdisciplinary communication. Looking forward it shouldhappen in the coming two years.” Yes, it happened these years. They are exciteand valuable though sporadic and non-formal. For example, Prof. Mihir chakraborty,in department of pure mathematics, in Kolkata University,he visited me twice, at 2009 and 2010. We should talk about my Phase Theoremand his Grade Theorem: we both found a kind of ancient India logic shoulddeal with the foundational questions of modern science. While he visited Chengdu, we talk about Soft Truth, Soft Consequence andSoft Computing in my university, about Tagore as “How Tagore now?” in another university, talk with Confucius School…there are so many things I will mention while talk to. I think we begin andbeginning. I wish there are better regular globe Chengdu Thought Meeting will happen.There is long preparation and imaging in heart. Are you interesting with myidea and invitation? I think it should be a wonderful meeting and we canrealize it. Ibelieve it is the ways we have to go in the field without way while we explorethe future Science and culture or in one word civilization. Bestwishes, Sincerely ZhaoChuan February 16-20, 2011 This year 2011 is Rabbit- year in Chinese counting. Put mypaper cut of a run rabbit as the gift and bless to my dear FIS colleagues for 2011.
