The Mentifex AI is capable of thought, of thinking.
it starts thinking by itself as an invitation for any nearby
human to communicate with the AI by entering a short
English sentence (e.g. "i am antti") or a query,
such as "who are you" or "what are you".
If you use an English noun that is unknown to the AI,
such as "uncorn" or "spooks", it will decide whether
the noun is singular or plural and wait for a pause in
the conversation to ask you a question like,
"WHAT IS A UNICORN" or "WHAT ARE SPOOKS".
If you use an unknown English noun in the
plural, the AI is conditioned first to ask you
something like "What do spooks do?", then
to wait for your answer (e.g., "Spooks scare people"),
and then to convert your answer to a speculative
question, e.g., "DO ROBOTS SCARE PEOPLE".
When you answer yes, no, maybe or nothing,
the AI retroactively adjusts its knowledge base
with all the associative-tag changes entailed
by your yes-or-no answer.
The Mentifex AI Mind uses neural inhibition
to briefly suppress any idea retrieved from
the knowledge base, perhaps in answer to
a query, so that different ideas may "come
to mind" as successively different answers
to the same query.

Not yet as a creative writer, but in tandem with you
it can create a printable transcript of a very
science-fiction-esque document -- a record of
yourself in conversation with the first True AI.

It outputs complete sentences on the order of
Subject - Predicate - Object (SPO) triples.
It comprehends these SPO triples by
creating associative tags among the concepts
in each triple. The power of the AI lies in its
ability to comprehend, learn and remember
any small subset of tens of thousands of
SPO triples. (Reasoning must come later.)
advanced and powerful as the MindForth AI.
Thank you for you interest.
