The Never-Ending Learning
A processing principle supported by a dynamic memory is presented, which makes learning involved in the overall treatment. By emphasizing the operational constraints of this principle, and taking into account the concrete tasks to be performed, a modular and parallel architecture is gradually defined. It is shown that this architecture arises in the course of processing, through two complementary mechanisms: the long-term reinforcement or dissolution of memory pathways, and the episodic sprouting of new pathways. The resulting system basically detects coincidences between a cross flow of internal signals and an afferent flow of incoming signals.
