Abstract - A device for simulating human creativity employing a neural network trained to produce input-output maps within some predetermined knowledge domain, an apparatus for subjecting the neural network to perturbations that produce changes in the predetermined knowledge domain, the neural network having an optional output for feeding the outputs of the neural network to a second neural network that evaluates and selects outputs based on training within the second neural network. The device may also include a reciprocal feed back connection from the output of the second neural network to the first neural network to further influence and change what takes place in the aforesaid neural network.

US06115701 - Device for the autonomous generation of useful information, 09/05/2000.

Abstract - A discovery system employing a neural network, training within this system, that is stimulated to generate novel output patterns through various forms of perturbation applied to it, a critic neural network likewise capable of training in situ within this system, that learns to associate such novel patterns with their utility or value while triggering reinforcement learning of the more useful or valuable of these patterns within the former net.

US06115701 - Neural network-based target-seeking system, 09/05/2000.

Abstract - A system and process for readily determining, for a specified knowledge domain in a given field of endeavor, perturbations applicable to an artificial neural network embodying such a specified knowledge domain that will produce a desired output, comprising a first, previously trained, artificial neural network containing training in some problem domain, which neural network is responsive to the presentment of a set of data inputs at the input portion thereof to produce a set of data outputs at the output portion thereof, a monitoring portion which constantly monitors the outputs of the first neural network to identify the desired outputs, and a network perturbation portion for effecting the application of perturbations, either externally or internally, to the first neural network to thereby effect changes in the output thereof. The perturbations may be effected by any number of different means, including by, but not limited to, presentment of new, varied data inputs, alteration or fixed or previously applied data inputs, such as by the introduction of noise to the inputs, relaxation or degradation of the network, and so forth, either randomly or systematically, and may be accomplished autonomously or upon specific external authorization or control. Identification of a desired output establishes an input/perturbation/output mapping relationship from which data inputs (external perturbations) and/or knowledge domain alterations (internal perturbations) that produce the desired output can be determined. The system and process can be employed in some instances and in some embodiments as a target seeking system for use with various design or problem solving applications, and can, in some embodiments, comprise or be comprised of a system and process for autonomously producing and identifying desirable design concepts through utilization of such a target seeking system.
