Programming Through Geometry

February 8th, 2005 | Filed under: AI, Computing, Programming | No Comments »

Dr James Anderson, of the University of Reading offers an alternative approach to programming which may be the key to better AI. The ‘perspective simplex’, or Perspex is a method of networking a computer program into a geometrical structure, rather than a linear string of ‘if / then’ commands. The geometrical structure better simulates the performance of neural networks, as it sustains growth and recovers from damage.

I find this method quite promising since the trend in the development of technology is always reaching to simulate nature. Understanding more of how nature operates from its fundamental geometric structure will direct technological developments on the most evolved path.
