Philosophers have been describing the mind as a network since Aristotle,
yet (prior to Konrad) no-one in the AI fraternity has thought fit to use
network technology to simulate it. Strange, but true.

Hi and Thanks Brian, Jennifer, and John,

It was many, many, many years back that I sat on a plane for hours next
to a brain surgeon. We exchanged stories and information about our
careers. He explained to me the workings of the human brain (at a level
I could understand - not deep). He described the neural network
regarding how the brain stores information and connects it to other
related information. He mentioned it is possible to sweep memory or
follow these connections or use some indexing techniques. I was
thinking the Brain is a Model of IDMS... Oops... IDMS is a model of
the Brain. No wonder it's so efficient and hasn't been surpassed.

So, I believe we need a new slogan --- ""Data Access The Way GOD
Intended -- NETWORK"".

Take Care,

Maybe he knew my brain surgeon acquaintance. The flight I referenced was in the early 80's just before my Cullinet career. Probably around 82 or 83.

If you look at the Google article, Derek Smith is noted as a chief
collaborator. He wrote a paper called The IDMS Set Currency and Biological
Memory in 1997. Thanks to Jennifer Bailey who told me about it. Looks like
his research paid off. The paper can be purchased from Amazon UK. From
1982 thru 1989 he designed and supported IDMS and remained a strong
