QUESTION: What is the purpose of CodeSimian? Why did you build it?
BEN'S ANSWER: CodeSimian's purpose is to improve CodeSimian, to become a self-modifying autonomous intelligent software that lives on the internet.
CODESIMIAN'S ANSWER: gives comparetojava plans shows what there is the purpose of codesimian why did you build it privacy polic, slidebar what is the test example purpose of codesimian why did you still build it privacy polic, codesimian than human brains why did you rename it can build what is the purpose of physics privacy polic, codesimian comparetojava plans what flexibility is the purpose of code why did you build it privacy polic
QUESTION: Why give CodeSimian away for free? Why the GNU GPL 2+ licenses?
Are you ever going to make money from it?
BEN'S ANSWER: Because I want more people to use it. Your payment to me is your time and CPU power when you use the program.
To get people to write code for CodeSimian for free. Even as simple a thing as clicking buttons in a certain order may generate new code and modify CodeSimian's behaviors... when more AI code is finished.
Eventually all CodeSimian programs and the people using them will cooperate to form a larger emergent intelligence, by using the
WIKI OF CODE
CODESIMIAN'S ANSWER: is money from away for gnu gpl licenses are the purpose of def my resume give codesimian playelectricguitarwiththemouse free why did you build what ever going to make params it privacy polic, used costs less faster than human equations playelectricguitarwiththemouse away for free why the software gnu gpl licenses are no money from give codesimian assuming that you plan sum ever going to make it privacy polic
QUESTION: Why is CodeSimian made of Java instead of another language or languages?
Many programmers say LISP is better for artificial-intelligence.
BEN'S ANSWER: If I want LISP, there is a version of LISP that runs inside Java, but there is no version of Java that runs inside LISP. While Java is awkward to progam artificial-intelligence in, Java is more flexible. In fact, most Java programs are improved to be faster (but do the exact same thing) by artificial-intelligence in the JVM (java emulator), while those programs run.
Theres also the problem of speed. Java is almost as fast as C++, while LISP is slower. You can make 3d games in Java.
Java connects to almost every system on the internet. If CodeSimian ever becomes smart enough to program Java, it will never have to leave Java. Java is flexible and fast enough to contain a smarter-than-Human software if one was ever built.
LISP was made about 40 years ago. Java was made about 15 years ago. Theres a lot more Java programmers out there and for massive cooperation through the internet, I need to use a language that more people know. Of course they can program in CodeSimian language or Java language. CodeSimian is easier than HTML.
Like many other languages, Java is interpreted/scripted/runtime. I would only choose a language of that type. New parts of Java can be created from inside a running Java program.
CODESIMIAN'S ANSWER: bayesian tool bugs flaws java gnu gpl licenses protects free why its another language or languages are you these inputs ever going to make been removed predicted money from it many programmers say lisp is the wiki equations fuzzy instead i made of def my resume give codesimian away better for artificial intelligence
