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

Generalization in action

How humans generalize is a key questions that cognitive scientists are trying to to understand. Animals and computers cannot generalize like humans can. Most of the time when we think of computational generalization, we are thinking about perception and classification, but it applies to action and movement just the same, if not, even more. I… Continue reading Generalization in action

Minimal concepts needed to encode human language in a computer

I propose that there exists a minimal set of concepts that can be used to describe and encode almost all meaning of human language. From this base set of concept primitives, complex conjoined concepts can be created due to compositionality and abstract structures. One cannot learn complex concepts like quantum mechanics, calculus, or homework without… Continue reading Minimal concepts needed to encode human language in a computer

Read, Review, and Relink. On growing your zettelkasten

I have been writing this zettelkasten now for about 3 months. It has absolutely been growing crazily. Sometimes I write several posts in a single day. When I am writing my posts, I interlink them with whatever relevant posts and I have already written. In that way, my zettelkasten grows. If you truly want to… Continue reading Read, Review, and Relink. On growing your zettelkasten
