The "pdaimind" is an attempt to introduce artificial intelligence
(AI) at so simple a level that the resulting cyborg has a minimal
but sufficient complexity, that is, just barely enough in the way
of components of a mind with no extra frills or complications, so
that all interested parties may determine whether or not the mind
in question is indeed a mind, and so that programmers will have a
standard pdaimind which they may port to any programming language.

http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Agora/7256/m-forth.html Mind.forth
is the Internet Web Release #17 of the implementation of pdaimind
in the Forth programming language so popular among robot hobbyists.

It may please the Net to know that the mind-grid of Mind.forth is
composed of the mindcore array psi{ }; lexicon uk{ }; and ear{ }.
In its current level of development, Mind.forth simulates neurons
by attaching flags (i.e., synapses) to f(iber) nodes in the mind-
core array psi{ } which holds wordless concepts as rows in psi{ }.
The same mindcore concept "f" may exist at different time points
"t" simply by occupying a time-dependent node in the array psi{ }.
Each such node is a row of flags associatively linking a concept
to its lexical entry in the English language array uk{ } and to a
phonemic word in the auditory memory channel of the array ear{ }:
