I can see the future of AI.  I have the system written down.  I have numerous diagrams.  I have the networks, the nodes, the trees, the parsing structures.  But I'm not sure if I can make it work.

It would be ambitious, to say the least.  This new AI that I have dreamt would constitute intelligence, no doubt.  It would create music because it wants to, not because that's all it can do.  Programming it would be as simple as this:


And there you have it, an AI system that has one and only one aspiration: to make the most pleasing composition possible.  How would it achieve this aspiration?  In the very same way that humans do: by breaking it in to pieces, by envisioning the future, and by taking action to move towards the future.  Just as I am envisioning this AI system right now, my AI system will envision the ultimate composition.

It's all very lofty and probably sounds completely impossible to most.  But it can be done.  I'm not sure I have the programming ability to complete the system that I have drawn, but I'm going to try.  And it could be the future of AI, right here in my hands.
