Abstract
IN THIS PROPOSAL WE DESCRIBE A NEW APPROACH TO MACHINE INTELLIGENCE WHOSE LONG TERM GOAL IS TO ACHIEVE GENERAL PURPOSE MACHINE INTELLIGENCE THROUGH A HIERARCHICAL DEVELOPMENT OF COGNITIVE PROCESSES. THERE WILL BE 10 STAGES TO ATTAINING THIS GOAL. THE FOCUS OF THE PROPOSAL IS THE FIRST STAGE, NAMELY, THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DISTRIBUTED FORMAT FOR THE SYSTEM'S INTERNAL REPRESENTATION OF EXPERIENCE. THE APPROACH IS UNIQUE IN THAT THE FOCUS OF RESEARCH IS ON THE SYSTEM'S ADAPTIVE MECHANISMS WHICH CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO DEVELOP THE COGNITIVE PROCESSES DIRECTLY IN THE ARCHITECTURE IN RESPONSE TO REAL WORLD EXPERIENCES. IN THIS APPROACH THE INTELLIGENT FUNCTIONS ARE DEVELOPED CONCOMMITANTLY WITH THE SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE ON WHICH THEY WILL RUN.
