I am Wamberto Vasconcelos, and I have always been curious about how us humans think. Thinking is, some say, what makes us humans, and we all do it, all the time. I am not on my own: for many centuries mathematicians and philosophers have studied logics trying to understand and capture some aspects of thinking – specifically, reasoning, or how we can make inferences, as in, “if the grass is wet, it must have rained or someone watered it“. There are many kinds of logics, for different kinds of reasoning (about time, beliefs, etc.) and some of these logics are very useful to support decision making, information management, and software engineering (designing, implementing and testing computer software), to name a few activities. I am keen to find out what kind(s) of logics we will need (to create?) for SASSY. Find out more about me on my web-page.
