Welcome to my webpage for GPRAM
General Purpose Representation and Association Machine
What is GPRAM?
- You just need to accept the
fact-the brain needs to represent
the outside world in its inside and makes associations among its representations
for solving general purpose problems, then GPRAM is a general purpose
machine that we strip out all other functionalities of the brain.
- It will be a testing platform
to develop theories, methodologies, and sharp our tools for constructing general
How is related to communication/IT theory?
- Ask many life scientists, “What could be structure, repeat,
random permutation, nonlinear interaction, then merge?” almost all
of them answered “neural structures”. But it is also the best
coding structure known as Forney Normal Graph. Is error control one of key
functions in neural networks? Without knowing what brain is doing, it
is very hard to prove or disprove this statement, even though many
- Telecom engineers and IT
scientists are now working on how to extend best known information
processing algorithms to understand biological systems.
What are differences between computer and GPRAM?
- There are two ways to explore
the world: (a) for a given setting and a given problem, find a precise
solution (machine) to solve the problem. (b) Build general purpose
machines that can vary themselves and let themselves discover the optimal
setting. Our science and engineering principle follow approach (a). In
these activities mathematics (often called optimization) is a very
important and useful tool. GPRAM follows approach (b).
- Computer will help us to find
best solutions for simple settings (like 7776 ideal templates for a simple
visual task in my paper [J31]). GPRAM will discover “good”
solutions for many tasks and settings (a “good” super-template
for many tasks).
- A computer is measured
largely by its speed and accuracy. A GPRAM should be measured by its
- It has been increasing
difficult to make a computer more flexible (in term of software). Equally,
it will be increasing difficult to make a GPRAM more precise.
Can we build a GPRAM?
- Yes! However, it is beyond my
single-person capability. Hopefully, in near future we can get resource to
make it possible.
