Classification

 

ANS classification

There are 3 different levels of intelligence, therefore we have the following classification,
where, in terms of capacity, each level is ca. 100 - 1000 times higher than the previous level:

Level 1, corresponds to insects, enables the following skills:

              - simple sensor input drivers, allows perception of different elements
                e.g. visual black+white, etc.
              - simple actor output drivers, allows commands of simple actions of body limbs,
                e.g. locomotion with small speed, etc.
              - simple glue logic, allows pre-defined reflexes for processing as input to output connectivity
                e.g. fixation on sensor element with certain attribute(s) and follow the trail accordingly
              - internal representation of entire body, as structure of connected body parts
                e.g. map of all body components with connectivity between them
              - internal connectivity, between body components and sensors + actors
                e.g. sensors + actors + internal organs

Level 2, corresponds to mammals/fishes/birds, enables the following skills:

              - complex sensor input drivers, allows perception of objects
                e.g. color visual as RGB
              - complex actors output drivers, allows commands of complex body actions,
                e.g. locomotion with different speed, sense of balance, coordination of own body parts, etc.
              - memory, means storage of many and different objects and landscapes
                e.g. objects can be grouped, which allows a classification based on user-defined templates
             - complex glue logic, allows multiple pre-defined own status quo induced by situations
                e.g. situation triggers imminent danger caused by a crowded landscape
              - self-learning mechanism, allows user-defined behaviour based on multiple factors
              - e.g. analysis of a situation with different objects within a certain landscape

Level 3, corresponds to primates, enables the following skills:

                 - language processing, assuming 2 different pre-defined specific applications
                    e..g. center for speech interpretation, center for speech production
                 - accumulation of knowledge, by using language processing
                    e.g. physical, logical and abstract terms for building and using an user-defined dictionary
                 - imagination, requires retrieval on demand of memorized objects and landscapes
                    e.g. internal representation and processing of possible scenarios
                 - complex logic processing, which includes selection and association of terms and actions
                    e.g. physical, logical and abstract terms for building and using an user-defined encyclopedia
                 - self-awareness, recognition of own body within the internal representation of perceived objects
                    e.g. proved via the mirror self recognition test


Remarks

1. Some animal species are self-aware, means recognizing themselves in a mirror
          -  e.g. mammals like elephant, bonobo, birds like Eurasian magpie, fishes like cleaner wrasses, etc.
2. Self-aware does NOT mean free will
3. Free will does NOT imply one has an inconsiderate and aggressive behaviour towards the entire world
