The limitation helps the brain prioritize and process vast amounts of information but can cause errors in thinking that can be exploited.

  • cognitive computing

    Cognitive computing systems use computerized models to simulate the human cognition process to find solutions in complex situations where the answers may be ambiguous and uncertain.

  • cognitive modeling

    Cognitive modeling is an area of computer science that deals with simulating human problem-solving and mental processing in a computerized model.

  • complex adaptive system (CAS)

    Complex adaptive system is a term used by DevOps teams to describe an IT platform or project composed of multiple components that interact in ways that cannot be predicted or controlled with complete accuracy.

  • computational linguistics (CL)

    Computational linguistics is the application of computer science to the analysis, synthesis, and comprehension of written and spoken language. Computers that are linguistically competent not only help facilitate human interaction with machines and software, but also make the textual and other resources of the internet readily available in multiple languages.

  • convolutional neural network

    A convolutional neural network (CNN) is a type of artificial neural network used in image recognition and processing that is specifically designed to process pixel data.
