NEW US PATENT GRANTED for ETHICAL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Welcome to the official website for the newly issued United States Patent concerning ethical artificial intelligence entitled: Inductive Inference Affective Language Analyzer Simulating Artificial Intelligence by John E. LaMuth - patent No. 6,587,846. As its title implies, this new breakthrough represents the world's first affective language analyzer encompassing ethical/motivational behaviors, providing a convincing simulation of ethical artificial intelligence.
This AI patent enables a computer to reason and speak employing ethical parameters, an innovation based upon a primary complement of instinctual behavioral terms (rewards-leniency-appetite-aversion). This elementary instinctual foundation, in turn, extends to a multi-level hierarchy of the traditional groupings of virtues, values, and ideals, collectively arranged as subsets within a hierarchy of metaperspectives - as depicted below.

Solicitousness . Rewards ..... Submissiveness . Leniency
Nostalgia . Worship ......... Guilt . Blame
Glory . Prudence ............. Honor . Justice
Providence . Faith ........... Liberty . Hope
Grace . Beauty ............. Free-will . Truth
Tranquility . Ecstasy ............ Equality . Bliss

Appetite . + Reinforcement .... Aversion . Neg. Reinforcement
Desire . Approval ........... Worry . Concern
Dignity . Temperance ........... Integrity . Fortitude
Civility . Charity ............... Austerity . Decency
Magnanimity . Goodness ............. Equanimity . Wisdom
Love . Joy .................. Peace . Harmony

The systematic organization underlying this ethical hierarchy allows for extreme efficiency in programming, eliminating much of the associated redundancy, providing a precise determination of motivational parameters at issue during a given verbal interchange. A similar pattern further extends to the contrasting behavioral paradigm of punishment, resulting in a parallel hierarchy of the major categories of the vices. Here rewards / leniency is withheld rather than bestowed in response to actions judged not to be suitably solicitous or submissive (as depicted in the diagram below). This format contrasts point-for-point with the respective virtuous mode (the actual patent encompasses 320 individual terms).

No Solicitousness . No Rewards ..... No Submissiveness . No Leniency
Laziness . Treachery ........... Negligence . Vindictiveness
Infamy . Insurgency................. Dishonor . Vengeance
Prodigality . Betrayal.....................Slavery . Despair
Wrath . Ugliness.......................Tyranny . Hypocrisy
Anger . Abomination.....................Prejudice . Perdition

No Appetite . Punishment. .... No Aversion . - Punishment
Apathy . Spite ............... Indifference . Malice
Foolishness . Gluttony.................Caprice . Cowardice
Vulgarity . Avarice...................Cruelty . Antagonism
Oppression . Evil.....................Persecution . Cunning
Hatred . Iniquity....................Belligerence . Turpitude

With such ethical safeguards firmly in place, the AI computer is formally prohibited from expressing the corresponding realm of the vices, allowing for a truly flawless simulation of virtue. For more details, please refer to the BEHAVIORAL FOUNDATIONS Link listed below.
********************
The current website is provided in concert with the official U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issue site, where written claims and specifications are easily viewed through standard web-browsers. The corresponding diagrams, however, are not so easily viewed: where a specially downloaded viewer is required to gain access to the drawing figures. As this might prove to be a deterrent to the casual web-surfer, the current patent website aims to complement the shortcomings of the USPTO website in a more user-friendly format. Accordingly, many of the figure drawings are directly incorporated into the formal patent specification for the convenience of the reader. Indeed, from the current central homepage (via the links listed below), each of the various informative aspects for this patent are presented in a systematic and orderly fashion.
Please note the respective description of these links immediately to follow...

BREAKING DEVELOPMENT !
The new GOOGLE/Patent-Search service has recently been activated that conveniently includes ready access to all of the 46 diagrams from the current patent. It should be mentioned, however, that these are Google-scanned copies, and therefore do not possess the crisp resolution of the official diagrams contained in the extensive specification referenced from the master menu below...

  • The link entitled ABSTRACT/CLAIMS provides a cursory overview of the patent in a systematic and encapsulated form.

  • The more casual reader is encouraged to examine the follow-up link entitled BACKGROUND FOR INVENTION, which is provided as a more informal narration that unfolds in a more measured fashion. This link actually represents a modified excerpt from an earlier book by the inventor, reproduced here for your convenience.

  • Through the aid of this background information, the general reader, in turn, should be ready for the follow-up link dealing with the formal SPECIFICATIONS for the patent, which amounts to a technical narrative in the strict style of writing specified by USPTO regulations. Indeed, it represents a similar copy to that posted on the USPTO patent issue website, with the exception that many of the formal diagrams are incorporated at their appropriate positions within the narrative (a definite advantage in terms of comprehension). Please also see the MASTER DIAGRAM link to view the flow-chart schematic

  • The major focus for the issue of this patent, however, concerns laying the groundwork for the eventual implementation of this versatile invention. Accordingly, any sincere proposals with respect to the licensure/financing are warmly appreciated, the details of which are further outlined within the CONTACT INFORMATION link listed above.
