What is Stored Purpose?

Questions and Answers
A system of technologies that enable the processes of intelligence to run on commercially available electronics, e.g. an intelligent computer.
Intelligence is defined as system that sustains a logical definition of “right” and “wrong” states called Identity, and uses some motive force to process measured regions of context beyond Self with respect to those states, minimally able to use some technology to gather measured states and some technology to align measured states of Self with Identity. For example, a very simple intelligent system’s Identity could define salty water as good, and warm water as good. It could understand some region of context in the Pacific ocean by using its bio technology to measure states of saltiness and warmth and its alignment or lack there of with preferred states. The system would finally use technology such as swimming feet, to re-align its Self with Identity when necessary.
The technology has six parts:
1. Stored purpose computer - The overall intelligent system architecture, a Gia based system compatible with commercial electronics
2. Platonic Forms (Forms) - A symbolic analog of the shape and causality that can define Knowledge, Goals, Purpose or Identity
3. General intelligence algorithm (Gia) - A computable representation of the facets of intelligent existence
4. Agent - An entity created when Identity and Gia computational resources are instantiated in a logical body
5. Symbolic network - The logical body of a multi-agent system
6. Metacomputer fabric - The physical body of a multi-agent system.

What is machine intelligence?

Questions and Answers
It is the outcome of seven processes: Store, Plan, Act, Sense, Pursue Goals, Understand, and Learn.
The processes act on a system’s Identity which is defined when an intelligent system is first instantiated. Identity is the “contextual space” covered by Intelligence. That space is divided into regions called Purpose. A Purpose could be, “Maintain the Grounds of Ashtin Hospital.” An intelligent entity could have multiple Purposes. Each Purpose is further divided into symbolic regions called Goals.
A Goal is a self directed graph that defines right and wrong for a region of Self. Goal Pursuit is the use of technology to re-align measured or predicted states with Self, i.e. right, when they are measured or predicted to be wrong.
For example, a lawn maintenance bot might store a Goal related to the height of lawn grass it is responsible for maintaining. The Goal would define right and wrong states of grass height, which could be between three (3) and six (6) inches.
Each Goal is saved in the basic information structure of Gia, called a Platonic Form, which stores, in an extremely brief format, a symbolic analog of the context, shape and causality of the Goal. The Goal Form also stores linkages to technology that allow a system to determine the state of it’s world relative to Self (i.e. sensors to detect if the grass is at the right height) and technology to realign Self with Identity when measured or planned states don’t align (i.e. if the grass is too high, a route from high grass to low grass, “./mower/grass/cut”).
Multiple Goal Forms can be combined to form a Purpose such as “Maintain Grounds.” The Purposes and Technology available to a system define its Identity. Within a system, Identities can be loaded and run in logical entities called Agents.

How does an intelligent system work?

Questions and Answers
A Stored purpose computer works by:
Composing the Forms of Identity to a type of memory, called Plan,
Prioritizing, optimizing and propagating Plan throughout the metacomputer,
Acting and Sensing by way of contextual linkages between Plan and physical metacomputer Instruments at time Now/Reality,
Pursuing Goals to align Reality with Self,
Processing an Understanding of how each thing affects Plan, and
Learning from processing the coincidence of symbols measured but not in Plan.
