As long as scientists fail to define intelligence in a natural way (as a set of natural laws), AI is limited to engineering: specific solutions to specific problems. So, AI is not an artificial implementation of natural intelligence.

Actually, scientists made a fundamental mistake 60 years ago. The field of AI and knowledge technology is researched using cognitive science. However:

• Intelligence and language are natural phenomena;
• Natural phenomena obey laws of nature;
• Laws of nature (and logic) are investigated using fundamental science.

So, being researched using cognitive science (simulation of behavior), AI is a “flight simulator” instead of an “airplane”. A flight simulator moves pixels on the screen – and the cones of the speakers – but it will not leave the room.

But I have a solution for the long term. I have knowledge, experience, technologies and results that no one else has. I know what autonomous reasoning is, and how to implement it in software. But my solution is in direct conflict with the current scientific opinion on natural intelligence and natural language.
I am using fundamental science instead of cognitive science:
• Autonomous reasoning requires both intelligence and language;
• Intelligence and language are natural phenomena;
• Natural phenomena obey laws of nature;
• Laws of nature (and logic) are investigated using fundamental science.
Using fundamental science, I gained knowledge and experience that no one else has:
• I have defined intelligence in a natural way;
• I have discovered a relationship between natural intelligence and natural language;
• I am implementing these laws of intelligence in software, which is published as open source;
• And I defy anyone to beat the simplest results of my CNL reasoner in a generic way: from natural language, through algorithms, to natural language.
Thinknowlogy is open source software.
