Releasing to society the latest technologies that represent a redefinition of the concept of life.Just as Darwin's theory of evolution had a profound impact on Western religions, social systems, arts and sciences, humanity has experienced a significant paradigm shift each time a major technological innovation is introduced.
Now, at the forefront of science and technology, the idea that "life" can be a computer that processes data with an algorithm, is beginning to capture the imagination. This idea greatly contributes to the development of life sciences and is about to impact the real world through the development of the latest AI technology. From the point of view of AI, the main purpose of life is simply data processing, and the mind, consciousness, and emotions are orthogonal, just noise. The rich emotions we experience every day, and the consciousness that spans the world can also be interpreted as meaningless and without value.
We want to ask you here Should we constrain the purpose of "life" to the analogy of computer processing data?
Can we give intelligence priority over life-specific values such as mind, consciousness and even emotion? Now that inorganic highly intelligent algorithms have begun to impact and drive society, can we really draw our future on that line?
Now is the time when humanity needs ALTERNATIVE choices, ideas, values, and technologies. Now is the time when we as artificial life researchers are confronting the question
"What is life?"by extracting the features of life, examining them and reproducing them artificially. Every day, we are searching for "life as it could be" beyond the framework of "life as we know it."
By confronting ambivalent questions such as mind, consciousness, adaptation, and evolution, we challenge the mystery of "life" and continue to redefine the steps forward to the next major paradigm shift.
We thus started ALTERNATIVE MACHINE to release the knowledge and wisdom of cutting-edge artificial life research to society. ALTERNATIVE MACHINE is a group of artificial life researchers who deliver technology based on the continuously updated definition of "life" to society.
ALTERNATIVE MACHINE looks to solutions beyond AI. We are convinced that the answer to what the world is seeking comes from artificial life research and ALTERNATIVE MACHINE Inc.
