Some issues for discipline of intelligence science

  • Cai Zi-xing Email author


The general frame for the system of intelligence science was proposed, the common features of the researching objects of the intelligence science were summarized. The intelligence science consists of three portions: scientific foundation, technical methodology and application fields. The common features of intelligence science include complexity, intersection, nonlinearity, anthropomorphic property, uncertainty, incompleteness and distribution etc. The new proposed scientific branch would reflect the new height, new thought and new way for developing the control science and intelligent systems from one angle, and present a strong wish for establishing a new branch of intelligence science.
