Mapping the Human Mind

By: Tom Van Buskirk
Tom’s background includes cognitive science, linguistics, system analysis, system engineering, robotics and programming.

I (Tom) have prepared a HTML diagram of some of the functions of the human mind with some selected roles that humans play. It is a work-in-progress designed to stimulate ideas from others interested in designing AI engines.

Mouseover the boxes to display the comments. Resize the diagram using the drop down menu at the bottom right side of the diagram. Click on a box to activate a link to descriptions.
