Abstract [en]

Ever since the creation of the first computers, humans have pondered the possibility of a computer capable of human-like thought and reason. Many sci-fi authors have explored the possibilities and consequences of a sentient computer and Artificial Intelligence. However, so far no one has managed to come close to an actual thinking computer. This is possibly because the core structure of a computer is based on binary truths, "ones" and "zeros", while the human brain does not work with only true or false. This thesis presents the creation of an AI prototype called IKE. It is not an AI that can act like a human, but rather one that is a step closer to that final goal of a thinking computer. In this thesis, this is done by merging simulations of the five major senses with artificially created feelings, which are then fed into the system's memory. These are in turn embedded into objects and stored in the memory as instances of those objects. The goal with this method is that when you give the system an object, it can tell you how it feels about the object and what experiences it associates with it. This is to give the computer a sense of simulated cognition which will allow it to answer in a human-like way. The result of this work is a system that can be seen as an approach to an AI-complete system. It is an AI that has feelings and senses, as well as the ability to express them. However, it cannot gather or make up new feelings nor experience them in any way, as this is left for a future project to solve.

Abstract [sv]

Sedan de första datorerna skapades har människan funderat över möjligheten att skapa en dator som kan tänka som en människa. Många sci-fi författare har utforskat möjligheterna och konsekvenserna med en tänkande dator och Artificiell Intelligens. Dock har ingen ännu kommit i närheten av en dator som faktiskt tänker. Detta kan bero på att datorn i grunden endast arbetar med ”ettor” och ”nollor”, medan den mänskliga hjärnan inte alltid svarar sant eller falskt. I den här avhandlingen presenteras utveklingen av en AI-prototyp kallad IKE. Det är inte en AI som kan agera som en människa, utan en prototyp som är ett steg i rätt riktning, närmare målet att skapa en tänkande dator. Detta görs i denna avhandling genom att slå samman de fem sinnena med artficiellt skapade känslor som matas in systemets minne. Där sparas de i minnet some instanser av objekt med associationer till de faktiska objekten. Målet med denna metod är att givet ett objekt ska systemet kunna säga vad den tycker om objektet utifrån tidigare erfarenheter. Detta ger systemet en känsla av simulerad kognition som ska gör det möjligt att svara på ett mänskligt sätt. Resultatet av detta arbete är ett system som kan anses vara ett steg närmare AI-Komplett. Det är en AI som kan spara, ta hand om och uttrycka sig om känslor och sinnen. Dock har den ej funktionaliteten att på egen hand samla in nya känslor eller att uppleva dem naturligt, utan detta lämnas till ett framtida arbete
