yeah, we do automatic parameter tuning all the time. the trick is to keep
the search space small thru intelligent design...

  Ben Goertzel, you frequently mention the numerous parameters that need to
be tuned in your program. I personally don't have any idea what you are
taking about ( I program professionally almost exclusively in low-level
languages) but have you considered ( I'm sure you have) building in some
kind of automatic tuning functions. These parameters must have some meaning
that could be continually parallely computed and adjusted. I'm not taking
about some EP trial and error scheme but rather getting at the real meaning
of each parameter.

  Just a suggestion to cut maybe three or four years off your development

  I wouldn't be offended if you pointed out some really simple reason why
this is crazy. After all, I'm not any kind of expert.

  I would be really surprised if you said, "Oh my gosh, that's it! We
should have this puppy up and running by Thursday!"
