Thurs.16.SEP.2010 -- NounPhrase Inhibition

The JavaScript artificial intelligence (JSAI) is ready for the implementation of the neural inhibition which figures prominently in the MindForth AI. The JSAI will first inhibit predicate nominatives in the NounPhrase() module, so that answers to the query "what are you" may cycle through a series of valid responses as the AI Mind tells the human user what it knows about itself in self-referential thought.

When we start the 16sep10A.html JSAI running and immediately ask it "what are you", it responds by saying "I WHO AM I". This response indicates to us that the "I" concept, although activated by the question, has so low an activation that it can not generate a thought from the knowledge base (KB).

We go into the ReActivate module and we force the concept of "I" to issue a spike not of zero (as it was), but of thirty-two (32). Then the input of "what are you" evokes "I HELP KIDS", but we want "I AM" (something) instead.

Fri.17.SEP.2010 -- Metempsychosis

Yesterday we programmed the JavaScript AiMind.html program in a marathon coding session without recording the steps we took, other than as transient code-comments that may be deleted after appearing in one or more archival releases of the free AI source code. JavaScript is much more opaque than Forth in letting you know what is happening deep inside the artificial mind. We were so eager to implement neural inhibition that we began rapidly trying one thing after another just to get some inhibited, negative activations to show up in diagnostic mode. Finally we uploaded our code at 10:56 p.m. and by 11:09 p.m., Netizens were already typing in the URL or clicking a link to have the AiMind flit across the Web and take up residence in the MSIE browser on their own suddenly intelligent computer.

Fri.17.SEP.2010 -- AI4U Royalty Check

Recently iUniverse.com sent us another royalty check for the AI4U textbook published in 2002. We advise people not to buy AI4U, because only geniuses can understand that book. It is by no means an "AI For Dummies" publication. We mention the AI4U book here and now for two reasons. Firstly, our JSAI software is the same, but further evolved, JavaScript AI program as code-listed towards the end of the AI4U textbook. Therefore any genius interested in the diachronic history of the JSAI may find the AI4U book useful to see how the JSAI started out. Secondly, although we published AI4U for many different reasons, the fact that geniuses and Nietzschean philosophers and Steppenwolves are still buying the book, eight years later, fills us with AI coder ambition to make AI4U a worthy purchase for you geniuses and to thank you.
