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

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

Grid Cells: The next building block in Artificial Intelligence research?

Current Machine Learning research has made huge progress in the past 20 years thanks to Deep Learning. We have computers we can talk to, powerful image recognition, and (almost) self-driving cars. Almost of these technologies are built on artificial neural networks , which in turn use perceptrons, a very simplified model of neurons. What we… Continue reading Grid Cells: The next building block in Artificial Intelligence research?

Neuron Cell types by function in the Entorhinal Cortex Hippocampus system

Here we collect the different types of cells in the human entorhinal cortex (EC) hippocampus system organized by their known functionality. Place Cells – In the hippocampus, they usually fire to a single location in space. Grid Cells Border Ownership cells Head direction Cells – They fire when the head of an organism is facing… Continue reading Neuron Cell types by function in the Entorhinal Cortex Hippocampus system

Comparing random concepts together

Can we compare any random concepts? Let’s try doing it with two objects. Car Pencil moves (with human intervention) doesn’t move fast slow large small dangerous in multiple ways relatively safe object boxy long large and heavy skinny sort of portable portable solid and stable easily broken mostly metal non-metals How are they similar: man… Continue reading Comparing random concepts together

People who have influenced my thinking on AGI and the mind

There are a lot of great people who continue to influence my thinking about how the mind works. Go read a bunch of their work if you can. Joshua Tenenbaum Scholar profile: https://scholar.google.com/citations?hl=en&user=rRJ9wTJMUB8C Joshua is a powerhouse and continues to do cutting edge research on how to build real AI. He does breadth and depth… Continue reading People who have influenced my thinking on AGI and the mind

Aspects to explore on amodel, amorphous, and abstract models

On the hunt for what is it that makes a model abstract. viewing content from different angles like cameras in a video game adding duck typing to models make every neuron or atom a model in and of its own. voting mechanisms every model used to describe every other model storing the skeleton of models… Continue reading Aspects to explore on amodel, amorphous, and abstract models
