Sorry to JOIN in at such hierarchy depth, but my
initial attempt to join this obviously most on-target
Web-wide Singularity discussion was an abortive one.
The recent talk about "redoubling efforts" inspires me
to report here that I am consumed full-time with
-- an open source scramble for the Singularity
Writing and updating (now in the third iteration) "Docs"
for the AI Mind project slows down even my "redoubled" efforts.
Plus, today 1 October 2001 I had to stop and write extensive
e-mail to an enterprising fellow who wishes to join in as an
AI Mind developer and conduct a port into C++ -- Mind.C++. I
agreed to consider adding a second developer, but I argued
forcefully for a related but separate Mind.C++ project.
Anyway, for several years I have been following the work of
Ben Goertzel (Webmind); Eliezer Yudkowsky ("Coding a Transhuman AI");
and many others, but only here on Shock Level Four have I seen
such eager determination of old and new hands to create an AI.
Now remember, the FAQ says that "JOIN" messages need not be modest.
Well, the http://mind.sourceforge.net project is an
immodest proposal for "let's get going on an AI." I am not
saying, "Do things my way," but rather, "Please take a look."
Dmitriy Myshkin reports that the Flare Project is far beyond
the documentation stage, and so is the SourceForge "Mind" project --
which you may have heard of as the (much maligned) Mentifex project.
Your SL4 forum where I have lurked for two months on-line
has been so fascinating to read that I now petition for
permission to come aboard.
