Phenomena in AI, Psychology and Neuroscience (in HTML or PDF). Expected to appear in Visions
of Mind, Darryl Davis ed. Updated December 2003

vs. Memetics: Does Language Need a Physical Plant? from the
Proceedings of the Workshop on Developmental Embodied
Cognition (DECO 01). I describe my model of how language connects
to modular embodied intelligence in nature, and what this implies for
AI. Just a position/review paper, no novel results, but good fun.

Visions of Mind,
text brings together a number of perspectives on issues realted to complete
synthetic minds with contributions from leading figures in the area.
It follows in the tradition of Computers and Thought (1963), Mind Design
(1981), Architectures for Intelligence (1988) and Android Epistemology (1989).
