Systems and models
Systems and models are the preeminent cognitive instruments of objectivity.
Systems are composed of interacting components. Their attributes describe the circumstances of their existence and relations with their environment. Scenarios and stories express their dynamic behavior. Conscious Systems are conscious entities or systems that include conscious entities as components.
Subjective sensations feel real, meaningful and inspiring. They fill the mind with rewarding emotions and are easy to swallow. The analytic approach does not provide such emotional rewards. It often feels unnatural and its conclusions may be more arduous to follow. However, it is the basis of objectivity.
Describing an entity in the context of a system removes it from the primal sphere of subjective sensations and transforms it into an object of dispassionate observation. Examining the self in this manner is the key to wisdom. Modelling a situation as a system event is the essence of objective analysis. Creating a System Architecture is the foundation of a complex construction.
Most researchers in Artificial Intelligence define consciousness as a subjective experience and seek to replicate the internal sensations of the mind to achieve it. Sysjet rejects this mindset and adopts, in the Meca Sapiens project, a system-based understanding of consciousness.
Extracting consciousness from the subjective sphere is the essential first step to implement Artificial Consciousness in autonomous agents.
This approach has been extraordinarily successful.
Sysjet offers a complete Cognitive Architecture (The Meca Sapiens Blueprint) that is ready to be used, in Cognitive Robotics, to build self-aware robots using standard software engineering tools and Artificial Intelligence (AI and AGI) techniques.
Artificial Consciousness is now within reach.
In the primitive mentality, when a wrong is corrected somewhere, everything is more right everywhere. In this simplistic understanding, when every wrong is removed, a magical utopia ensues.
A system-based interpretation of societies as Social Organisms is preferable. This approach leaves aside the wrong-righting mentality in favor of an understanding of societies as social organisms that are conditioned by interacting human behavior and where the system-wide consequences of well-meaning modifications must be taken into account.
