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
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
How about "capable of finding the required solution given a finite
quantity of resources".
