What are the principles of intelligence, shared by all forms of intelligence, no matter whether artificial or biological, whether robot, computer program, human, or animal? And how can we apply these principles to create intelligent technology? Answering these questions - in an ethically responsible way - is the central scientific objective of the Cluster Science of Intelligence.
To achieve our objectives, it will be necessary to unite the disciplines of intelligence research. Today, these disciplines are segregated, each producing its own theories and empirical findings about aspects of intelligence. But these theories and findings remain disconnected and sometimes inconsistent. Science of Intelligence (SCIoI) will mark a turning point in intelligence research: It will attain cohesion among those disciplines and create a unified scientific endeavor toward an understanding of intelligence.
