The Imagination Engine® - This is the patented neural network paradigm that emulates how the brain, a federation of biological neural networks, generates a stream of consciousness.

The Creativity Machine® - This is the patented neural network paradigm that emulates the process wherein the brain generates novel ideas and plans of action that deviate from what it already knows. Furthermore, this canonical system illustrates how a neural architecture, like the brain, can invent an attitude about itself, in a process tantamount to self-awareness.

The Self-Training Artificial Neural Network Object™ (STANNO) - This is the patented neural network paradigm that allows Creativity Machines to learn from their own mistakes and failures.

The SuperNet™ - This is the patented neural network paradigm that enables isolated neural nets to weave themselves together to create brain-like structures.

The World Brain - This is a concept first proposed by our founder in 2001 at the World Knowledge Forum wherein many of the Internet's TCP/IP nodes are converted to computational neurons that knit themselves into a brain-like structure. STANNO paradigm would allow such a SuperNet to absorb human content on the Web, while Creativity Machine paradigm would allow this vast neural architecture to contemplate and invent content that would soon overwhelm that originally supplied by humans. Most importantly, this World Brain could become the ultimate refuge for dying protoplasmic consciousness.
