Society of mind (computer science)

Redirected from Society of mind (Computer Science)

Society of mind is the use of multiple machine 'minds,' to do processing work as separate units to develop independent results, and then combine these data to create more heuristically applicable principles.

One basic example is the current popular use of distributed processing (Seti at home, Distributed.net[?]). Though the level of this information processed is limited, it is currently possible to develop more sophisticated data processes using neural nets in a distributed fashion.

Unlike Parallel processing, or distributed processing, however, society of mind's purpose is to draw different, but acceptable results from the same data, and then dealing with comparing these different approaches in an orderly way.

Compare with Parallel processing.
