Question: Why has little if any thought been given in AGI to self-modeling and
some capacity to track the model of self under the evolutionary transformations?
It's probably because AI's have not needed to operate in environments where they need a
self-model. They are not members of a social community. Some simpler systems, like
Mars Rovers, have limited self-models (where am I, what's my battery charge,...) that
they need to perform their functions, but they don't have general intelligence (yet).
Could the efficiency of the computation be subject to modeling? My thinking is that
if an AI could rewire itself for some task to more efficiently solve that task...
I don't see why not. A genetic-algorithm might be a subprogram that seeks an efficient
code for some function within some larger program. Of course it would need some
definition or measure of what counts as 'efficient'.
