To give you an idea of what I am talking about. I am working on the memory processes that humans have and trying to implement a model for computers. It seems kind of tough, but I know there is a way. Humans connect single words with ideas and expiriences they have known. Though computers don't have expiriences in the same sense, they do have learned knowledge, in a working system.
This is how a human may associate one word with many other words or ideas
Starting with the word fly:
When I think of Fly I directly think of bird, milkman and plane. Bird: I think of parrot, eddgs, and a peacock. milkman: a novel, freedom, and the hunt. plane: wright brothers, crashes and security.
so from Fly I can think of security or even a hunt without any thought because my memory has connections between the words. A computer can achieve the same I believe. It could search a brain(a storage area for its learned input) and locate the words that have been input into the program and from there the program can be drawn in several different directions because the computer has flagged associations with other words. I believe this is the true key to A.I. Does anybody have any ideas to add? or any way to implement such designs? This could be a very interesting chat to have here.
