Neural Systems, Language, Chaotic Processors for Thinking, and Machines-Programmers.
A.D. Linkevich

It is discussed the problem how to design a machine-programmer, i.e. an artificial system capable to produce computer programs. Making a computer program is treated as a translation of a text that describes an algorithm in a natural language into a text of a program in some algorithmic language, whereas the essence of the developed approach is an intermediate stage of this transition, i.e. comprehension of the meaning of the original text. It is shown that generalized frames can be used for analysis of meanings, which removes the intractable problem of finding a set of independent meanings. This enables to suggest an outline of a dynamical mechanism of thinking based on associative generation of information in a semantic space which employs hyperbolity of chaotic attractors. It is a so-called "regularized English-like language" (RELL) that is stated to describe customer requirements and to formulate algorithms. The above mentioned points are combined and embodied in an architecture of a machine-programmer composed of lexical, semantic and operator neural systems which are implemented as a neural network, a neural field and a neural network respectively.
Key words: neural systems, language, chaotic processors.
