New Video Series provides details on Universal Knowledge Store

Critical New Aspect of Biological Plausibility in Computers

Described in "Universal Knowledge Store" Video Series

FutureAI, an Artificial General Intelligence Research company, announced today the Universal Knowledge Store videos (set of 4), describing a critical new aspect of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). The Universal Knowledge Store receives and combines visual, auditory, touch and other sensory information.

What's unique about the Universal Knowledge Store is that it can store any type of information in the interconnections between neurons just like your brain does.

—Charles  Simon principal developer of the software

AGI is the early-stage ability for computers to think and respond like humans across a broad spectrum of topics.  This encompasses systems with genuine understanding, necessary to allow them to apply intelligence to different application areas, the way all humans can.

The Universal Knowledge Store also incorporates learning algorithms so it can internally learn to associate words with objects and improve its behavior with experience—repeating behaviors which lead to positive outcomes and avoiding those that do not.

Also, the Universal Knowledge Store is implemented in the "Brain Simulator II" which is FutureAI's free, open-source platform for AGI experimentation. Brain Simulator II marries the fields of AI and neuroscience to advance the field. A key aspect of both the Universal Knowledge Store and the Brain Simulator II is the issue of "biological plausibility".  The Universal Knowledge Store strives to represent and process information in ways which can also exist in the human brain—ensuring broad humanlike intelligence as computer power increases in coming years.
