"Summary - A radically new form of neural network based artificial
intelligence has been conceived that in contrast to preceding forms of AI,
builds itself and then enters into an intellectual bootstrapping process
wherein it learns from its own mistakes and successes to create useful ideas
and strategies. Not only is this technology capable of autonomously
inventing and discovering new products, services, and procedures, as it has
for numerous international corporations and government agencies, it has also
devised several revolutionary neural network paradigms. For these reasons
and more, AI visionaries and futurists, such as Dr. Dennis Bushnell, NASA
Langley's chief scientist and visionary, have called this technology, known
as the "Creativity Machine," AI's best bet at creating human to trans-human
level intelligence in machines. ...This technology is produced and delivered
exclusively by Imagination Engines, Incorporated as either customer tailored
or mass produced products. "

I've never even heard of this company before just now. I don't know how
technically laughable or not so laughable this approach is to AGI, but they
are obviously doing something pretty effectively given their customers,
while at the same time making some pretty extraordinary claims.

What do you guys think?
