CascadiaPrime Cognition - AGI Technology Stack

Artificial General Intelligence will be supported by a diverse array of technologies that are now extant or will in the decades to come. It is very easy to become narrowly focused on particular technologies, approaches and frames of reference. The intent here is to stand back and look at the landscape as a whole recognizing that technological and conceptual surprise is possible and indeed probable. There is a need for a broad frame of reference - the OSI Model is one example of differing layers of abstraction. But there are other ways of slicing the cake.

The term technology stack used here will be the widest possible expression of the term and not the narrow expression of it often used in the information technology industry. It will therefore embrace all fields of knowledge that are supportive of advancing information technology including artificial intelligence and artificial general intelligence. Work on the technology stack is global.
