ADA , On the road to dynamic cognition: How is Action Modeling equivalent to Biological stratification ?


It appears that the brain is a uniquely connected set of statistical processing units(SPU), functional memory storage modules that are connected via neurotransmitter mediated API like interfaces. A statistical processing unit is a processing module that emerges from connecting memory elements that have the ability to modulate output based on input and feedback up chain from output line or lines. The neurons and glial cells exhibit these properties.

In biology the action potential firing process encodes the varied information related from other contiguous neurons tasked with processing some bit of sensory information. neurotransmitters provide the API or application programming interface through which groups of neurons fire or process data in concert. Each functional module describes a set of neurons providing some processing function for a given sensory data set. The neo cortex of most mammals is separated into regions loosely devoted to processing data from the visual, auditory, somatosensory, gustatory, olfactory data sets for example. These regions emerge over time as mammalian individuals develop, as they experience new data the regions sample and process and interpret the data.

Most research in the artificial intelligence space indicates that many  have started to get the importance of the statistical  aspects of cognitive processing (Google, Boston Dynamics....) but no one understands how these disparate processing units combine to emerge a thinking machine .namely how you'd connect SPU's to emerge dynamic cognition.

The Action Delta Assessment algorithm of the Action Oriented Worflow paradigm I invented is a generalized algorithm for *emerging an SPU like function from any training data set by having ADA analyze the stratified data*, stratification is the process of fitting a data set to desired boundaries of computational importance, these are called "actions" in the paradigm and require an action modeling step.

Action modeling is done by describing a functional boundary of computational importance along a range of actions that are fixed in the system. These are then given contextual relevance to the desired functional boundary, in Action Oriented Workflow these boundaries are encapsulated by the concept of an "Entity". Entities are represented using a computer programming language (java). The next step involves identifying how a given Entity has it's unique actions (8) defined or modeled.

In biology "stratification" as I assert it, is equivalent to action modeling which is the act of taking sensory data and then processing it differently depending on which layers in the cortex are devoted to processing parts of the incoming signal (hierarchical decomposition and processing)...for example the stratification of processing in the visual field is functionally equivalent to the modeling of actions that must be performed for ADA to start doing its magic on a given data  set.

So, ADA is an emulation of the raw cortical algorithm that when trained defines functional SPU's, but is not a generator of the unique self connection of SPU's which one must have to make a dynamic cognition (a "thinking" brain) . I assert that the medulla is an spu, the hypothalamus is an spu, the neocortex is a contiguous sheet of spu modules dedicated to specific sensory processing, the amygdala are spu's devoted to emotional processing....etc. ADA is a fractal algorithm...able to be composed in any direction along an incoming data set to model(biology:stratify) it to any desired processing resolution.

Some believe that the self connection of biological brains also generates from a fractal seed that may be related to the cortical algorithm and in fact derive from it...I am among them. I have already identified a state diagram that I believe can emerge a working connection between SPU's designed around ADA that could emerge dynamic cognition with sufficient training data. I plan on pursuing the construction of such a system in the next few years.

Food for thought:

On the idea of "world wide mush" resulting from "open" development models

A recent article posted in the Wall Street Journal posits that the collectivization of various types of goods or services created by the internet is long term a damaging trend for human societies.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703481004574646402192953052.html

I think that the author misses truths that have been in place that show that collectivization is not a process that started with the internet but has been with us since we started inventing things.

It seems that Mr. Lanier is not properly defining the contexts under which different problems can benefit or suffer from collectivization. He speaks in general terms of the loss of the potential for creators to extract profit from their work but misses that this is and was true of human civilization since we first picked up a rock to use as a crude hammer. New things make old things obsolete and people MUST adapt to what is displaced (be it a former human performance of that task or use of an older product) so as to main…

Highly targeted Cpg vaccine immunotherapy for a range of cancer

Significance?


This will surely go down as a seminal advance in cancer therapy. It reads like magic:

So this new approach looks for the specific proteins that are associated with a given tumors resistance to attack by the body's T cells, it then adjusts those T cells to be hyper sensitive to the specific oncogenic proteins targeted. These cells become essentially The Terminator​ T cells in the specific tumor AND have the multiplied effect of traveling along the immune pathway of spreading that the cancer many have metastasized. This is huge squared because it means you can essentially use targeting one tumor to identify and eliminate distal tumors that you many not even realize exist.

This allows the therapy for treating cancer to, for the first time; end the "wack a mole" problem that has frustrated traditional shot gun methods of treatment involving radiation and chemotherapy ...which by their nature unfortunately damage parts of the body that are not cancer laden but …

First *extra Galactic* planetary scale bodies observed

This headline


Significance?
So every so often I see a story that has me sitting at the keyboard for a few seconds...actually trying to make sure the story is not some kind of satire site because the headline reads immediately a nonsense.
This headline did just that.
So I proceeded to frantically click through and it appears it was a valid news item from a valid news source and my jaw hit the floor.
Many of you know that we've been finding new planets outside of our solar system for about 25 years now.
In fact the Kepler satellite and other ground observatories have been accelerating their rate of extra-solar planet discoveries in the last few years but those planets are all within our galaxy the Milky Way.
The three major methods used to detect the bulk of planets thus far are wobble detection, radial transit and this method micro lensing which relies on a gravitational effect that was predicted by Einstein in his general theory of relativity exactly 103 years ago.
