Honestly I have no idea what the hell Douglas R. Hofstadter is talking about in this one, but his enthusiasm for the topic makes it worthwhile!!

Very interesting theories and concepts, his explanations are on point!!!

This is a lot of fun to read but it is difficult to see how these projects will generalize to a theory of cognition that goes beyond what these individual programmes do for their particular areas of application. I mean, he knows that this is the big problem. I suppose the idea is to attack a range of problems with approaches that are similar in spirit, and then a sort of commonality will emerge from which a more general theory/technology/whatever can be extracted. But there is little evidence here to suggest that it's going to work. So in the end, I don't believe this is going anywhere.
