Here are a couple pictures of Alysha robot

she looks like a bit like a yeehaa cowgirl so instead of wheels have you thought of letting her ride on one of those 4 legged robots one sees 😀 .

your four legged friend, your four legged friend
Alysha the cowgirl will ride
She'll be instructed, from the code your have penned
to yell Yeehaa when Robo is spied.

Marvin Minsky's society of mind PDF book if anyone would like to read it you can also buy it at book stores such as Amazon.com etc.

Sorry the PDF book is too large to download here, either Google it, or pick it up in the bookstore it's worth it.

 

A brilliant mind. I remember when he was writing his Society of Mind. He sometimes posted on the yahoo ai-philosophy forum and provided access to his first drafts of the book.

At one time I was thinking of building her actual human like legs but then I thought get real.

She's already complicated enough with human-like arms.

It was also hoping to create a human-like functional head, but I may end up just using a computer monitor for her face.   Way simpler to design and implement.   She's just a dream on a drawing board right now.

Yes, I've been reading some of his book tonight.   I'm talking about making a very simple version of his ideas, but even now I'm realizing that many more agents are going to be required than I had originally hoped to need.   And this is even staying within myself-constrained 24 months old child-brain.

They say that children at this age know about 50 to 100 words.   That has to be terribly wrong.  The concepts they understand seem to go far beyond that range of knowledge.

Takes me back to 20th September 2019 🙂

I found the following language milestones for 18 to 24 months toddlers.   This list is quite impressive and explains what we should expect from human 2 year old.   Obviously in Marvin Minsky's model these all need to be controlled by agencies.   I see that creating these agencies is going to be a lot more complicated than I thought.

This is all quite interesting but it also includes much more than just language these milestones include having the child look at pictures and memorize and learn things from the pictures.   They also say at the beginning the child will learn from 10 to 15 words but sure likes it's gonna be a lot more than that.

They also have the child learning new words from hearing them from the parent. This is precisely what I would like to do but it's going to be very interesting to see how we can go about doing this.

 

15 Speech and Language Milestones for 18-and-24-Month Old Toddlers

March 31, 2017

    •  

 


    •  

It's important for children to hit certain milestones in their development. If you have concerns with your baby's development, make a Peds appointment.

At 18 months of age your toddler is exploring his/her world and learning so many new things. Here are some of the typical speech and language milestones that indicate your child is progressing in language development.

Your child….

Uses 10-15 different words

Uses words to have needs met (“more, up, eat”)

Understands and uses the names of five different familiar objects

Imitates sounds and words spontaneously

Starts to combine two words (“all done, up mama”)

Uses real words intermixed with babbling

Hums along with familiar children’s songs

Imitates words and word combinations with a model

Recognizes pictures of family members and familiar objects

Points or uses gestures to get your attention or make requests for objects/actions

Retrieves a known object from another room upon request (“go get your blanket”)

Follows simple commands

Points to body parts when asked

Develops a play routine (baby doll, kitchen play, car play)

Enjoys looking at books and will turn pages a few at a time

At 24 months old your toddler…

Has an expressive vocabulary of approximately 200 words (words she/he says)

Asks for foods, drinks, and toys

Identifies many body parts

Verbally names pictures in books

Verbally names actions pictured in books

Refers to self by name

Asks, “What’s this? What’s that?”

Has a “conversation” with self and in play

Understands simple questions and commands

Uses sentences that are two to three words in length

Uses two-word negative phrases (“no bed, not go”)

Can identify objects by size (big ball vs little ball)

Listens to stories

May use pluralization (babies, balls)

Will maintain attention to an activity for six to seven minutes

A language-rich environment is important for your child’s speech development. Here are some easy activities for you to do with your child that will provide that environment:

Read to your child every day, and label pictures for your child

Talk about what you or your child is doing when cooking, washing dishes, playing with cars or dolls, taking walks, and coloring

Imitate and identify sounds with your child such as birds chirping, dogs barking, doorbells, water running, and sirens

Model correct speech and language for your child. Don’t use baby talk if your child says “wawa” for water, model it back to him/her as “water”

Respond meaningfully to your child’s communication attempts. If your child says, “Where dog?” you could say, “Where is the dog? Let’s find her. In the kitchen? Outside?”

Emphasize color and size of everyday objects (daddy’s big black shoes, baby’s little blue shoes)

Give your child opportunities to use words by finishing your sentences (“Let’s go play_____”{outside}. “I am hungry let’s _______”{eat})

Do finger plays with your child (Itsy Bitsy Spider, Wheels on the Bus, Patty Cake)

Limit TV and other screen time. Children learn best through play with models

Have a daily routine that allows predictability for your child (breakfast, dressing, play, lunch, book, nap)

The following are Minsky's questions in blue, followed by my answers as they apply to my linguistic AI model.

Agents

 

Function: How do agents work?

 

I will be creating them so I will determine how they work.

 

Embodiment: What are they made of?

 

In my model the agents will be dictionary managers. Python programs to manage dictionaries.

 

Interaction: How do they communicate?

 

In my model agents will communicate using definitions in the dictionaries. It will all be done by the definitions but words are signed.

 

Origins: Where do the first agents come from?

 

I will create the original agents but as the program evolves these agents should be able to programmatically modify themselves.

 

Heredity: Are we all born with the same agents?

 

This is a philosophical question I have no need to answer for my project.

 

Learning: How do we make new agents and change old ones?

 

Good question. I do not yet know the answer as this project is only just getting underway.

 

Character: What are the most important kinds of agents?

 

I would think the most important agents are the agents we are trying to create as the self of the mind.

 

Authority: What happens when agents disagree?

 

I don't know the answer haven't created an agent yet.

 

Intention: How could such networks want or wish?

 

Actually it should be easy to make the robot want or wish to do something the question is not how to do this but rather where these wants and wishes are actually coming from.  In my case they will probably be programmed in manually to a large degree at least in the beginning.

 

Competence: How can groups of agents do what separate agents cannot do?

 

Because it's easiest for me to program in separate agents it makes sense to use separate agents communicating with each other so I can see how separate agents can work together to do something that a single agent cannot do.

 

Selfness: What gives them unity or personality?

 

There will be only 2 agents in my model that have a unit of personality, those will be the Id and the I agents.

 

Meaning: How could they understand anything?

It's a linguistic AI model.   Understanding is a matter of meaning by linguistic definition.

Be careful. I discovered the hard way that designing the chassis and then trying to fit all the components in afterward is a bad idea, unless, of course, the chassis is huge

Batteries take up a huge amount of space

Speaking of space, how much personal space do you have there ?

It's not too bad, I have a private room I believe I can step-up 3 computers I can use one at a time.  No room for any robotics work bench though. 😥
