Is a New Software Library to Simulate Natural Processes like Hunger Needed?
#1
I'm approaching this from a software perspective, and this might pertain to anyone had experience with TensorFlow and similar libraries for machine learning and neural nets.

My question is this: in order for artificial intelligence to more accurately simulate consciousness, bodily processes that may influence thoughts, and more complex response to stimuli that may not always be deterministic, would a new library similar to TensorFlow or PyTorch be necessary, or are these libraries sufficient enough? I'm pretty sure you could implement neural networks with <i>some</i> stochastic input/output with a software like TensorFlow, see this paper:<!--StartFragment--><a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4936290/">https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4936290/</a><!--EndFragment-->

But I'm wondering if a <b>new</b> software library, potentially predicated on <b>new</b> maths like Linear-Time Logic/Fuzzy Logic, would be more useful to those in the biotech world (which touches upon neuroscience, biochemistry, even philosophy). Are natural processes of the body, both internal and external, sometimes non-deterministic or act in a way that could potentially be simulated by a slight amount of randomness (or a threshold of randomness before a state like hunger is switched on?)

The goal would be having it develop over time slowly enough. Also, models for every biological process and mood do not exist yet, which is where this could be used not only for input but for the neural network itself, as a pseudo-biological process for say, changing a mood naturally (although mood would be connected to other parts of the body in ways we don't know yet too).<br><br>Here are the main options I've found so far:<br></span><ul style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51);

Or maybe none of this is necessary at all because we don't understand how things are deeply interconnected yet, but I think simulating biological processes (even creativity) would be an interesting component of AI that could potentially connect to say, machine learning networks that are its "brain" and cause more organic responses and less immediate on/off switch responses.</p>
