TalaMind LLC’s mission is research for a ‘natural language of thought’ approach to human-level artificial intelligence, proposed in a 2014 doctoral thesis. This research approach is the direction most likely to achieve human-level AI that will be beneficial for humanity, as discussed in the author's subsequent papers and two recent books. An AI system developed by following the TalaMind approach could have ‘higher-level mentalities’ of human-level intelligence, including natural language understanding, self-programming and higher-level learning, curiosity, imagination, artificial consciousness, and metacognition. This approach can leverage previous research in many areas of AI, yet will need further research and development to achieve human-level AI or be used for specific applications.
