What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Programming language
  • Machine learning

His main research concerns Artificial intelligence, First-order logic, Resolution, Artificial Intelligence System and Robot. Borrowing concepts from Probabilistic logic network, Nils J. Nilsson weaves in ideas under Artificial intelligence. His First-order logic research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Intelligent agent, Propositional calculus, Calculus and Knowledge representation and reasoning.

His Resolution study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Discrete mathematics, Automated theorem proving, Graphplan, Partial-order planning and STRIPS. His Artificial Intelligence System research includes elements of Artificial architecture, Computational intelligence, Hyper-heuristic and Music and artificial intelligence. His Robot study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Simple and Human–computer interaction.

His most cited work include:

  • A Formal Basis for the Heuristic Determination of Minimum Cost Paths (6797 citations)
  • Principles of Artificial Intelligence (3047 citations)
  • Strips: A new approach to the application of theorem proving to problem solving (2573 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Artificial intelligence, Robot, First-order logic, Cognitive science and Calculus. His Artificial intelligence research includes elements of Plan and Natural language processing. His Robot research incorporates elements of Field, Human–computer interaction and Action.

His studies in First-order logic integrate themes in fields like Automated theorem proving, Theoretical computer science and Resolution. His studies deal with areas such as Model-based reasoning and Reasoning system as well as Cognitive science. His study on Natural deduction is often connected to Monadic predicate calculus as part of broader study in Calculus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Artificial intelligence (52.63%)
  • Robot (10.53%)
  • First-order logic (10.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2002-2021)?

  • Artificial intelligence (52.63%)
  • Cognitive science (8.27%)
  • Reasoning system (3.76%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Artificial intelligence, Cognitive science, Reasoning system, Model-based reasoning and Natural language processing. Nils J. Nilsson is studying Robot, which is a component of Artificial intelligence. His Robot research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Applications of artificial intelligence, Field, Subject and Plan.

The various areas that Nils J. Nilsson examines in his Cognitive science study include Simple, Phrase and Reading. His research integrates issues of Qualitative reasoning, Knowledge representation and reasoning, Opportunistic reasoning and Deductive reasoning in his study of Reasoning system. His Language identification study, which is part of a larger body of work in Natural language processing, is frequently linked to Natural language programming and Temporal annotation, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2002 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Quest for Artificial Intelligence (192 citations)
  • Human-Level Artificial Intelligence? Be Serious! (58 citations)
  • The physical symbol system hypothesis: status and prospects (31 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Programming language
  • Machine learning

Nils J. Nilsson mostly deals with Artificial intelligence, Robot, Sensorium, Consciousness and Epistemology. His study on Artificial intelligence is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Physical symbol system. Nils J. Nilsson interconnects Music and artificial intelligence, Progress in artificial intelligence and Plan in the investigation of issues within Robot.
