This group has as its mission to explore the many facets of and uses for artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as its potential use in new and innovative directions. We are not a discussion group, we are an actively designing and creating group with many potential benefits to our members.

One project that you may find intriguing is our attempt to create some form of artificial life; be it purely virtual, synthetic, or something wholly artificial that can be examined and used to explore this meaning of life further.

Think of our projects and ideas as stepping stones along the way to the creation of independent "brains" (i.e. synthetic collections of hardware and software) as our final goal.

Stretching the possibilities of AI into the the future, one potential offshoot may be the creation of some sort of virtual consciousness receptacle that would allow for the possibility of immortality. This would then lead on to a physical form being attached to this receptacle.

PLEASE NOTE:

• This meetup group is NOT a business AND this is NOT a business recruitment site for any businesses!

• This group is NOT affiliated with any external agency, company, business, or anything else.

• This group IS a club of sorts where amateurs, professionals, hobbyists, and newbies can come together and do great things.

• Les francophones sont bienvenue!

• There are ZERO/NO/NADA costs or fees to join the group or to participate in anything we do. All parts, supplies, and resources are provided by the group's sponsoring organization for the projects that are taken on as official to this group.

• If (and when) any official project reaches completion - this means a viable prototype is ready for finalized testing, there are already established avenues whereby various organizations, corporations, and other institutions are already willing to consider those projects for further development and benefits (these benefits could be in the form of monetary, salaried, or other concrete benefits to the team members who developed that project). 100% of the benefits will be shared EQUALLY amongst only the team members who worked on that project to completion AND NO ONE ELSE.

Come and join your mind to ours. :)
