Initial proposal for Cogmach

This is a little outdated (written somewhere at the beginning of 2011) now, but I still find some interesting ideas there. Maybe it’s just me…



Definitions of Intelligence

  1. “the  ability  to  gather  and  process  information  so  as  to efficiently solve problems and exploit opportunities” (Heylighen, Distributed intelligence technologies, unpublished);
  2. “the continuous process of making sense of the surrounding environment” (I cannot remember where I have read this one, but it may be
    [Kegan, R. (1982). The evolving self: problem and process in human development. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press.] or somebody from constructive – developmental school.

    In any case the idea is that intelligence is not a static property but a process.
