Alice in Wonderland

The name of the institute for Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering at the University of Groningen is abbreviated to ALICE. This abbreviation is also a reference to Alice, the main character in Lewis Carroll’s famous children’s novel “Alice in Wonderland”. Lewis Carroll was a mathematician and a logician and he was quite apt at incorporating logistic questions and jokes into his writings. Logic plays a very important role in the field of Artificial Intelligence. An important feature of the discussion in this field of study concerns the relationship between forms of knowledge based on logic and forms of knowledge based on statistics.
