Research - Notes: 1979
 
25th Feb 1979
 
Interest as a drive. - Might be possible by automatically associating pleasure with input or thought which is new - not recognized. The intention is to stimulate the search for new things.

Try - if executing do not record steps taken in execution, only record cue initiating the execution.

Some thoughts from loose sheets
 
 - DO should just do I/O, let J/P [Idea of input /idea of output] go on reflexively.
 
 - Output processor if at concentration level 0 for more than 2 input frames then reflexively output something?
 
 - Output sinks - motor and memory     auto come from memory
 - Input attentions - sensor and memory    auto go to memory
 
 - Possibly every recording consists of an input-output pair.
 
 - Start executing when get associated whatever which is associated positively i.e. ASIN [associated input] has INRP [input reward punishment] = 'Y' start executing.
 
 - Somehow idea of a goal  -> what to do to get it.
 
                     Starters           Concentration Level                        Attentions - Interrupts

 - Working at one level - can be interrupted by same level initiators.
 
 - automatic execution - halts on some pre-set condition.
 
The environment being used at present [ in my simulation] is a static one. Only new input occurs if an output has occurred to change the environment. A more realistic environment is a dynamic one. Without any output being done the input changes - my reflexive motor on duplicate inputs will no longer function in a dynamic environment which switches between two inputs.
 
Information goes from short term memory [to long term memory] if it is:
1/ Punished or rewarded or has emotional associations,
2/ If it is new information.
