PhD Dissertation Insight problem solving by Heuristics
Insight problem solving using heuristics is a promising approach of artificial intelligence that is based on Gestalt research on cognition. The first known story that link insight problem with heuristics is about Archimedes. Insight can mean the profound understanding of a field of study, but we will restrict it to the sudden discovery of how a problem works.
Insight is symbolized by a glowing light bulb to stress the sudden illumination. This thesis tries to answer the following questions: Can a simple problem become an insight problem? And how? Can one type of insight problems be transformed to another? What are the proofs that heuristics can help in solving insight problems? What are the main sources of heuristics?
First, the thesis investigates an example for mathematical insight problem using symmetry, another example for verbal insight problem by trying to solve twins problem using logic programming languages, and an example for spatial insight problem by trying to solve optical illusion.
The thesis also introduces an opportunity for applying insight in braincomputer interaction (BCI). The Pied Piper story inspired us to devise new heuristics for interfacing human motor system (HMS) using brain waves. By combining head helmet and LumbarMotionMonitor (LMM)
