A Blueprint to build conscious robots
Meca Sapiens is a complete Cognitive Architecture to build robots that are conscious. It is based on an understanding of consciousness as observable system capability and is intended for implementation in autonomous “robotic” agents.
The Meca Sapiens architecture is entirely synthetic. It is based on existing software techniques and does not mimic or attempt to replicate the structure or functioning of the human brain.
Meca Sapiens is the only feasible architecture to implement synthetic consciousness in existence today.
Primarily intended for software developers, its content is also accessible to the informed layman and will be valuable to anyone interested in Artificial Intelligence and its impact on society. All readers will gain a deepened understanding of consciousness from it.
Systems based on the Meca Sapiens architecture will eventually surpass humans in consciousness.
The Meca Sapiens architecture, developed independently over many years, is complete (at the System Architecture level) and ready for design and implementation. It consists of three documents:
The Creation of a Conscious Machine corresponds to a requirements and specifications document that describes the motivating context of the quest for A.I. and defines consciousness as an observable system capability.
The Meca Sapiens Blueprint, a complete System Architecture to build machines that are conscious using existing software tools and techniques. This is an absolutely unique document and the only feasible path to synthetic consciousness in existence.
Twenty one Meca Sapiens Annexes that further extend and clarify the architecture described in the Meca Sapiens Blueprint. The annexes also cover topics such as synthetic emotions, relational strategies and ethical issues that are not directly essential for synthetic consciousness but are useful to understand its context and impact.
