Title: Greetings from Germany

New guy reporting in.

Work in IT professionally but nothing with AI. That I do for fun. Here for exchange of ideas, daydreaming and possibly collaboration.

For now I'm collecting information about alternatives to NEAT and it's spin-offs.

Wish ya all a lovely Sunday.

What do you mean by "NEAT"? Do you mean the "lightweight, semantic grid framework built with Bourbon (CSS)"?

Anyway, welcome. It sounds like your background will fit in very well here.

Greetings from Canada! I used to live in Germany. Is NEAT a specific type of genetic algorithm?

Almost! AKA "NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies".

Thanks for the warm welcome. ;)

OK, so it *is* a genetic algorithm. I'd never heard of it before.

I think there is an alternative to using mutation to train nets,    as in training them symbolicly, building a symbolic model unsupervised, instead of just evolution,  you cant learn it anywhere because its too new (no-one is doing It yet)...  but im just mentioning it.

This probably isn't the right place for tech support, but is there a trick to get the signature to update? i'd like to put some recent project info / links there but it doesn't seem to be working. Tried on Chrome & Firefox. Any ideas?

Signatures are restricted on new accounts for a while. You are welcome to post links and preferably some details about them in the General Project Discussion (https://aidreams.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=35.0) section in the meantime.

Hi Sky, hi everybody,

Here are more greetings from Germany (near Hamburg)!

I am a great fan of ideas towards strong AI with symbolic AI, and hope to have nice discussions (and infos) here.

Hey Burkart! The more the merrier. We haven't quite managed to create strong AI by ourselves. So please give us all your ideas.  ;)

Thank you, Freddy and Hopefully Something.

I am going to share my ideas.
Shall I start a knew post I "General AI Discussion" or "Future of AI"?
Or does a post exist about (symbolic) approaches towards strong AI?

Some points from me here shortly:
- Strong AI understands
- Strong AI learns
- Strong AI has goals
- Strong AI acts in a (model) world
- Strong AI communicates
- ...

Have a nice day
Burkart

I would say start a new thread just for you. We do have many of those threads, but we want to hear from you. Go ahead and create and upgrade a full theory, don't even wait, go all out haha!

Either:
"General AI Discussion" or "Future of AI"
However in general the General is more , general, while future is more a news-like area but if you got new news then, may fit!
