Welcome to the home of the Virtual Intelligence Matrix. The VIM is a model of human brain function which has been given life through a 3D character who lives in a virtual world. The Virtual Intelligence that you see exploring the world is so named to distinguish it from "artificial" intelligence algorithms, since its design works in an analog rather than a digital manner. At the heart of the VIM is the Quantum Flux Engine which is used to create the richness of behavior exhibited by the VIM. With sensory input from the VI's visual field, and a limbic system which develops likes and dislikes for what is seen, the VI will acquire different behavior patterns with time. We hope you enjoy watching this life-form evolve, and maybe decide yourself whether it is an "artificial" person or simply a "virtual" person.
