A Michigan-based platform company has been built upon the foundation of a revolutionary new artificial intelligence patent that enables contemplative, synthetic brains to dynamically build themselves on a wide variety of computational platforms. The emphasis of this new business enterprise will be to stimulate the sagging Michigan economy through the creation of thousands of new jobs via subsidiary ventures spawned by these artificial minds.
Lansing, Michigan (PRWEB) November 20, 2008 -- A Michigan LLC has been formed based upon a new and revolutionary artificial intelligence patent issuing today, essentially brilliant, synthetic brains capable of building themselves from scratch. The emphasis of this new business enterprise will be to stimulate the challenged Michigan economy through the creation of myriad spin-off projects conceived directly or indirectly via this radical technology. Thousands of new jobs will follow. Accordingly, this new company, its founder, and its cause were recently honored by the Michigan Senate in its resolution SR 0223 of 2008.
What is this new and fundamental development in the area of artificial intelligence that makes such a potentially gargantuan enterprise possible? …Until now computer scientists somewhat mimicked human brain function by either painstakingly writing computer code or seeking the necessary data to train artificial neural networks. Nowhere to be seen was the kind of artificial intelligence anticipated by science fiction, the kind that didn't require human nursing, that could build itself, make significant conceptual leaps, or even become self-aware. Now, with the arrival of U.S. Patent 7,454,388, machine intelligence becomes self-assembling, cumulatively bootstrapping itself from a totally naive state to progressively higher levels of creative intelligence. No, this is not a Darwinian genetic algorithm requiring vast computational clusters, generating potential ideas through random mishap. This is a radically new form of synthetic consciousness that intelligently designs itself on the humblest of computational platforms, ultimately obviating the need for even computer scientists. The patent, authored by scientist/inventor Dr. Stephen Thaler, is appropriately called "Device for the Autonomous Bootstrapping of Useful Information" (DABUI) upstaging his prior landmark invention, "Device for the Autonomous Generation of Useful Information" (DAGUI, a.k.a., the "Creativity Machine") that issued in 1997. Using the methodology of this newest patent, vast numbers of artificial neural nets can autonomously interconnect themselves into vast brain-like structures called SuperNets™ that freely contemplate their world, think new thoughts, and develop their own sense of consciousness and self-esteem.
Based upon this impending patent a Michigan LLC, Imagitron, was formed on June 27, 2008. The intent of this company is to first create myriad projects based upon this newly issued patent that will in turn employ thousands in the state of Michigan. On September 25, 2008, the Michigan Senate approved a resolution recognizing the achievements of Dr. Stephen Thaler and his Michigan-based company Imagitron for "piercing the veil of technology and determining that Michigan will be home for his legacies." This resolution was sponsored by Senators Valde Garcia, Thomas George, Wayne Kuipers, John Pappageorge, Cameron Brown, Tony Stamas, Jim Barcia, Jason Allen, Roger Kahn, Gerald Van Woerkom, John Gleason, who all clearly understand the immense economic impact of an invention having such fundamental scientific and technical significance.
Heretofore, Thaler's lobbying success in Michigan has been attributed to his very affirmative response to queries about what the technology can do for the economy. To this question he posits numerous examples of products and services invented by this AI paradigm and currently sold by international corporations; that the technology has been at the core of a whole new generation of robots capable of Machiavellian improvisation on the battlefield; and that this paradigm has been central to the "connect-the-dots" problems in pre-911 data mining efforts by US intelligence agencies. In effect, it can do anything, stimulating the markets as it goes about its business.
When asked why this radically advanced artificial intelligence has not already commanded trillions of dollars in investment, Thaler invariably responds, "Imagine a genius walking into any culture, as a total stranger, and claiming he or she has the solution that others may have staked their careers and livelihoods searching for. It's a totally intimidating scenario to most, but one that must be dealt with in bringing this vast new artificial intelligence technology to Michigan."
Queried about what this brilliant new development meant for the average person, his response was this. "To the person on the street, this patent represents the AI depicted in science fiction, truly intelligent and inventive supercomputers with a mind of their own, Machiavellian military robots, vehicles for life extension, and unlimited virtual pleasure. The difference between the scenario offered by the DABUI, and the future typically portrayed by the popular press, is that the synthetic brains behind all of these systems require neither the esoteric theories of academicians nor radically new hardware. It's here now primarily because it builds itself even on relatively mundane computational platforms.
In a sense, this patent represents a judgment day for the human race whose fate hinges upon the acceptance of these highly advanced AI paradigms (see http://www.metacafe.com/watch/855776/dingularity).
