Paper Abstract

HAL, the disembodied robotic voice ever present in the Arthur C. Clark movie 2001, A Space Odyssey, is the archetype for artificial intelligence. What will it take to achieve HAL? Trillions of highly interconnected arithmetic units in very close proximity is mandatory. Moore's Law and 3D SILICON will get that part done. Linguistic articulation of experience and direction of action is the other missing piece. The human version's neural circuits are basically just multiply-and-add template matchers and yet verbalization of experience is the apparently automatic result. We call this recognition based logic and by embedding it in a properly interconnected processor network, the capabilities of HAL will be achieved.
