Synthetic Intelligence (SI)

As we develop intelligence, we learn to abstract basic patterns from the swirl of chaotic information around us. Then we learn to extrapolate expansions and trends based upon those basic abstractions and this allows us to begin to predict. By observing the success of our predictions, we can modify the process of abstraction and extrapolation to improve our predictions. Eventually, we attempt to replicate some pattern and apply it in a new environment. All of this accumulates knowledge.

Eventually, we get to a point where we have sufficient intelligence tools and accumulated knowledge to synthesize new abstract patterns that we have never observed but can postulate by need.

When our ability to synthesize reaches a point of creating a new standalone node of conscious intelligence, it should be called Synthetic Intelligence or SI.
