NEURAL REPRESENTATION MODEL 1)2)5)
A device – formerly known as Wisard, and later Magnus – constructed by Prof. I. ALEKSANDER of Imperial College, London.
It was originally a "neural pattern recognition machine, an intelligent machine without a mind, just a layer of neurons which took a pattern in and labelled it".
Professor ALEKSANDER's final goal is to modelize and study consciousness, as he goes on improving his machine. (2000, p.42-45).
This work is clearly related to so-called "Artificial life".
