This is an interesting paper that touches on several concepts that seem relevant and interest me.

Synopsis: Fractal Intelligence

Fractal Intelligence (See my writeup on Everything2.com) : The idea that intelligent systems are defined by the emergence of the components that they are composed of, and can participate as components of higher-order intelligent systems that exhibit emergent behavior.

The term Fractal Intelligence is meant to transmit the basic idea of multiple levels of cognition in intelligent systems with the fractal property of being self similar over ranges of scale and location.

Synopsis: Intelligence Vector

Intelligence Vector (See my writeup on Everything2.com) : A hypothetical phenomenon and physical law, like gravity or field theory, that manifests itself in the physical world as emergence and fractal intelligence. The, as yet unspecified, models, mathematics, relationships and underlying phenomena in the physical world that allows emergence to occur.

The term Intelligence Vector is meant to transmit the idea of a set of natural laws or a force at work in the universe that enables emergent behavior. At the bare minimum, this idea can be explored through imagining any collection of communicating components. Any system that allows communication between components is capable of exhibiting emergent behavior (behavior that is not present in the components, only in the collection of interacting components).
