For more than a decade my interest is focused on the systematic development of a new theory called boundedness for explanation of the difficulties which complex system behavior poses to the traditional approach. It turns out that these difficulties are so fundamental that needs new approach for their explanation. One of the great merits of the concept of boundedness is that it successfully fills the gap between general biology, physics and artificial intelligence.
Maria K. Koleva have been working on years long project so that to put forward a systematic general theory about transformation of a system of constituents into a system of specifiable agents which respond to external stimuli in an intelligent-like manner. The proposed approach fundamentally develops both the physics and the information theory and puts the relation between them on novel grounds by establishing the foundation for realization of a functional circuit capable to autonomous organization of information in a hierarchy of semantic structures along with it autonomous comprehending and autonomous creating of information.
The major publications are available at and are summarized in a recently published book "Boundedness and Self-Organized Semantics: Theory and Applications" IGI-Global, Hershey PA, USA, 2012, DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-2202-9, ISBN13: 9781466622029, ISBN10: 1466622024, EISBN13: 9781466622036,
