Coding a Transhuman AI, or Notes on the Design of Self-Enhancing Intelligences, also known as The Art of Seed AIs, alias How to Build a Power in 3 Easy Steps and 35 Hard Steps
The purpose of this document is to describe the principles, paradigms, cognitive architecture, and cognitive components needed to build a complete mind possessed of general intelligence, capable of self-modification, self-enhancement and recursive self-enhancement. CaTAI is the first serious attempt to design an AI which has the potential to become smarter than human. The project is presently in the design/conceptualization stage and no code has yet been written.
