Petersburg, VA, January 31, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The new approach to reception theory may show the way to a breakthrough in the development of artificial intelligence, change education methods and the way how we understand our culture. New reception theory would also bolster art, for example helping film makers and visual artists better understand important issues of art perception, claims Vadim Moroz.
Located in Virginia, Moroz is a trained artist and educator, author of several books. He has a Certificate in Biology and Biochemistry, Diploma in German studies, BA in Art History. Moroz went public and created the campaign “Human Brain is not an Information-processing Computer” at www.indiegogo. He hopes to raise funds for an online resource center, book and movie.
According to Moroz, contemporary reception and cognition theories are still heavily based on an information-processing approach. Such theories contradict the fact that our brain is not an information-processing computer. Therefore, the contemporary approach could not be even successful in creation of machines which would convincingly mimic intelligence.
Moroz claims that the perception and cognition theories should adopt contemporary neuropsychology and Gestalt. According to twenty-first century neuropsychology, emotional response is the influential factor in processing input information. Long-term memory is also a biochemical process. The reasoning is a secondary response, therefore new technological principals are needed in development of artificial intelligence.
Reception and cognition theories should be also based on Gestalt, which means that human brain combines the input signs into meaningful combination and censors out unclear information. What we see are censored, emotionally influenced pictures created in our brain. Our cognition depends on our needs, education and cultural training. Moroz works on the possibility of inducing these principles in visual perception theory, to make this knowledge useful in art and education.
Moroz claims, we need a new approach to education. “Success in life does not depend on the amount of information memorized, but on the skills to evaluate and use information creatively. Education should be art, which means an emotional creative experience. The theories should not contradict the human nature, they should support and cultivate an individual growth.” Vadim Moroz hopes for the success of his campaign, the crowdfunding sites are an increasingly important venue to find sponsors for such projects.
