Memories to seed machine intelligence

from the machines-with-a-past? dept.
Adam Brown writes "It has been theorized that in order for a computer to evolve its personality, it should have past memories to draw upon. While browsing the web I found the site randomaccessmemory.org which encourages members to post their life experiences and any memories that stand out in their mind. Could such a database be used as a starting seed for the implanted past memories of an AI persona? Does anybody else know of any similar resources?" CP: there's the separate question of whether seeding with human memories is a good idea…but if so, one could use biographies.

    There is Thought Tracker, which is a system to arbitrarily link notes. http://www.tu-ilmenau.de/~gomar/stuff/thoughttracker/

    Also N.I.C.O.L.E. http://nicole.sourceforge.net/

    There are also several types of IRC bots that sit in a chat channel and record everything that is said to them, and then regurgitate mixed up versions of sentences based upon their assumption of the context of what's being said to them.

    I think that perhaps NICOLE might benefit from being mated to an IRC bot.

    Do you have any links to said IRC bots? I am after exactly that sort of thing for a project I am working on involving a virtual weaving loom which weaves conversational threads.
