Psychology focuses on the intention behind actions and reactions. It uses mostly language models, but also graphical models, and various kinds of mathematical models to discover what most likely drives beings to do what they do.


What’s most important to me is the hard problem: qualitative experience and empathy. A lot of it happens in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. There are three different structural problems, readily identifiable by missing:

  • global random connections (for improvisation and gambling) [autism]
  • locally structured connections (for planning) [psychopathy]
  • full prefrontal cortex [perfect logic circuits & a complete lack of qualitative experience, including sense of good and bad]
