Principia Intellegentia

Roger Kingdon

I have written a book called 'Principia Intellegentia: The principles governing human and machine intelligence'. This book makes the case for considering the phenomenon of intelligence in humans to be entirely bound up with their individual ability to learn. It does this by setting out a high-level description of how humans learn - called 'IDEAL' - and then showing how this description accounts for many aspects of the human condition. In addition, 'Principia Intellegentia' makes the case for applying this same description to the design of learning algorithms for automated computing machines, thereby addressing the greatest intellectual challenge of our age: the quest for artificial intelligence. A draft version of 'Principia Intellegentia' may be downloaded from All comments welcome.
