I used the search Feature to see if anyone else has posted on this topic but found nothing(that i could see).

If you havent Heard of the Creativity Machine as of yet, Take a peak, you will be shocked.

Hi Bluecollar

Thanx for a very intersting read - I *han't heard of the Creativity Machine before - I'm going to try to find out more.


It's an interesting concept - machines designing other machines - but I suppose with evolution, that is the next step - who says humankind is at the top of the food chain...

Cheers!!

I did - lot's of references but this was worth looking at, IMHO.

"Ordinary neural networks excel at learning from raw data, cumulatively learning to associate one pattern with another, as when raw sensory inputs from our five senses activate mental images or feelings. Note, however, that such a direct link between the external world, and our own internal mental life is only a small part of brain activity. To produce a more faithful emulation of human cognition, some mechanism must be established that provides an internal genesis of thoughts and ideas that draws upon cumulative experience, rather than what our senses are telling us at the moment....."

No worries my friend!!

Reading on, I was fascinated (and intrigued!) by the World Brain concept:

"That is why some of the most ambitious computational tasks of our time have been undertaken using distributed computing techniques, as exemplified in the SETI screen saver project. Note however, that the SETI program is not a neural system. It is simply a scheme to divide an ambitious computational task among many scattered machines, via the Internet.

Therefore, IEI is busily transforming all of its advanced neural network paradigms into TCP/IP based systems. The overall intent is to convert many, if not all, of the TCP/IP nodes on the Internet into functioning neurons. The resulting freethinking entity will be capable of introspecting upon all human-originated content residing on the Internet and World Wide Web, and from that knowledge store creating new ideas and strategies that will inevitably transform our thinking and our planet. As this World Brain accumulates new knowledge, it will begin to create a "SuperNet" above the Internet, vastly overshadowing the present content stored there."

Thanx again for the entralling link BC - good post!

Intriguing concept.

As I read, I could see how random noise affects (inspires/boosts) the creativity process. It's the interjection of that sort of thing that helps writers and artists (the profesionals) in their creative processes.
