How much information should we drop to become intelligent?
Nave O., Neuman Y., Perlovsky L., Howard N.
Cognitive processing by intelligent systems involves the deletion of information in favor of higher level abstractions. This process can be addressed through the physics of computation but a formal model that explains this process has not been proposed yet. In this short paper, we propose a model that through physical constraints only generates optimal solution to the collapse of n objects into n sets. A numerical simulation of the model results in a logarithmic function of information loss and condensation that perfectly fits our knowledge of cognitive processes. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
