The specific implementation 'doesn't matter' [yet] because the main
problem is just doing it in =any= way in which it can be done.
Most of my own work in this regard remains only on-paper, but I can
Demonstrate how and why it works.
After that, implementation can be achieved in myriad ways, but they
all remain the same-stuff [this's the main focus of AoK, Ap1, BTW
[proplems having infinite-scope which confront nervous systems, which
nevertheless, resolve them in practically 'real time', and the system
architecture constraints inherent if a system is to be able to do
All the implementations are just 'translations' - various
'language-interface' stuff with respect to the one system
architecture that works.
Of course, optimizing a technological approach by incorporating
state-of-the-art hardward and software practice 'squeezes'-in
increased capacity to usefully 'push-energy'.
But Proof-of-Concept can be achieved in any way that does, in fact,
Prove the Concept - it can even be done mechanically :-]
