Complicity and the Brain:
Dynamics in Attractor Space
by Peter Henningsen
This paper is about my favourite architecture for a brain model, the
SOHN or self-organizing Hopfield network. I believe it is
like no other architecture in that it allows for the orchestrating of
brainwaves in emergent semantic networks. This is so cool, it might
just be sufficient for the emergence of genuine thinking and consciousness.
I also describe my basic ideas about how to run the search for true
artificial intelligence as an open source community venture.
