IDEAL is my high-level design for a robot control system which, I claim, is capable of reproducing the key features of human intelligence. Its main principles were summarised on this website (2004); supporting arguments were published in Principia Intellegentia (2009); more accessible descriptions and explanations were published in How to Make a Mind (2015); and second editions of these books are now available for free download (2024).

As part of my 2008-09 MSc in Advanced Computing at Imperial College London I showed that IDEAL compares favourably with other published high-level cognitive architectures.

These ideas are the basis of my talk How People Think that was delivered on 16 November 2017 to Class XII students of City Montessori School, Lucknow.
