Why? Well, i was trying to get a little more info on how artificial intelligence is done by the actually smart people to apply it to my mission to program the 5 senses. I just got an idea for how to proceed from the 3rd video in the series at approximately the 11:40 mark.
The instructor separates the brain into three parts:
Upper Brain/ Cortex
Lower Brain/ Spinal Cord
The lower brain controls skills and responses, so it does all the sensory stuff. The Upper brain does all of the reasoning over symbols (information) about goals. The middle brain converts the sensor data into information.
Now, with my 5 senses, i have a sensing system. But it seems i have to find a way to convert all of the this stuff into information or symbols. So, i was thinking of a label system.
Some things I am thinking about:
Okay, I need to find a way to describe things. I need a way to represent here from there. I also need to represent mine from yours. I also need a way to be able to change strategies dynamically (yes, this on sounds difficult, but if I use my programming grammar, it will be just like talking to another person). They say that it is hard to find a way to go from sensory data to symbols. If I can do this, then I might have helped a few baffled AI robotics scientists. I have no major background or education, but none of this sounds too hard to me. We will see if I can get a full system going.
