Brief Tutorial Description:

This tutorial will present the theory and application of a powerful new connectionist patent called the "Creativity Machine Paradigm," that has been recently heralded by NASA as "an AI best bet" at producing trans-human intelligence in machines (Bushnell, D. M. (2001). Future Strategic Issues/Future Warfare [Circa 2025], NASA Langley Research Center)

Brief Bio: In the course of his 14 year career at McDonnell Douglas, Dr. Thaler worked diverse areas that included high energy laser warfare, nuclear hardening of materials and systems, stealth technology, laser-driven growth of diamond, and ANN-based airframe health monitoring, ultimately producing significant patents in each of these arenas. His recently founded company, Imagination Engines, Inc., based largely upon the Creativity Machine Paradigm, caters to a wide range of corporate and government customers that include Gillette, Raytheon, Boeing, Anheuser-Busch, Booz-Allen & Hamilton, and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).
