Grid cell research areas

Grid cells are a potential path to AGI. Some areas I am researching: what grid cell like representations might look like in the neocortex grid cells as eigenvectors of the successor representation grid cells as inferred global task structure that are factorized how numenta envisions grid cells in the neocortex allocentric and egocentric views with… Continue reading Grid cell research areas

The first models a human infant might create to model their world

If human mind is an autonomous interlinked model building system, then what would the first models for an infant look like? The list below is a thought experiment into what those first models would look like. Lines and edgesThey can be any lengthThey can be varying widthsNot 100% straight Eye movementCan move my eye and… Continue reading The first models a human infant might create to model their world

The human mind is an autonomous interlinked model building database of the world

My definition of intelligence has become refined over time. In my article about the the human mind being a simulation engine, I already wrote out some of the points I am going to make, but my thinking has on the topic has become more clear. The human mind is composed of tens of thousands of… Continue reading The human mind is an autonomous interlinked model building database of the world

Ideas on how I could help researchers

Suggest other people they could collaborate with and why Suggest refinements for their research Suggest areas that are not clear in their writing Suggest areas they can improve Suggest other directions and refinements to explore on their ideas Help collect more data Suggest related papers to look into Suggest ideas to explore for research Give… Continue reading Ideas on how I could help researchers

AGI questions

What are grid cells doing and can they be used as the basis for generalization? what would a computational model for composition look like? Are there really grid-cell like features in the neocortex? how could a model be represented in the mind? are there abstract structure primitives? What are basic, core, simple models? is there… Continue reading AGI questions

What I am researching for traditional machine learners

One of the central goals of Artificial Intelligence research is to build computers that comprehend like humans. This would allow us to build more intelligent systems and for us to be able to communicate with computers. Its natural that the computer science industry has a strong focus on Natural Language Processing (NLP). Advanced systems like… Continue reading What I am researching for traditional machine learners
