History

What is Architecture Machine (ArchMech)?

ArchMech is a conceptualized machine that could achieve computer-aided tasks. Unlike the computerized machine - computers, it demands dialogue and mutual interruptibility to achieve evolution. It adapts heuristics and understands the change in context and outliers, based on the rule of "5 subassemblies". It will help human and machine transform from symbiosis to mutualism.

5 Subassemblies: Process of adaptability
  1. Heuristic Mechanism
  2. Rote Apparatus
  3. Conditioning Device
  4. Reward Selector
  5. Forgetting Convenience 
Limit the search for solutions
Retain the circumstances for use next time
Handle all non-exceptional information (Habits)
Select from any action "the teacher" likes
Discard the irrelevant
Heuristics = Degree of uncertainty = Possibilities
Computer-aided demands dialogue to evolve
Adaptability means the machine will transform in response to a change in context
