Declarative Consciousness for Reconstruction

Leslie G Seymour
Published Online: 2014-04-25 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/jagi-2013-0007

Abstract

Existing information technology tools are harnessed and integrated to provide digital specification of human consciousness of individual persons. An incremental compilation technology is proposed as a transformation of LifeLog derived persona specifications into a Canonical representation of the neocortex architecture of the human brain. The primary purpose is to gain an understanding of the semantical allocation of the neocortex capacity. Novel neocortex content allocation simulators with browsers are proposed to experiment with various approaches of relieving the brain from overload conditions. An IT model of the neocortex is maintained, which is then updated each time new stimuli are received from the LifeLog data stream; new information is gained from brain signal measurements; and new functional dependencies are discovered between live persona consumed/produced signals

Keywords: consciousness; LifeLog; mind extension; brain preservation; brain machine interface
