Thank you for those super-kind words about
http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/theory5.html -- an AI theory; and
http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/mind4th.html -- Mind.Forth AI.

Apparently Forth is losing hold of some basic value; my mistake :-(

http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/jsaimind.html -- as in the AI4U textbook?

http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/security.html describes the AI Security
Module present in both Mind.Forth and the JS AI, and described on
the Security Module chapter of the AI4U Robot AI textbook :-)

The Security Module is not yet really pulling any security duty.
It is sandwiched in between the main Alife Module and the
human-computer interaction (HCI) module so as to provide
a "nesting place" for future AI security innovations.

They laughed when I sat down to write SUPERCOMPUTER AI MIND.JS,
but now the AI robots are encircling the supercomputer installations.
