Our beginnings...

The design of ‘human-like intelligence’ into machines has been a goal of the discipline of Artificial Intelligence (AI) since the advent of digital computers. In 1950, Alan Turing, arguably, the founder of AI, posed the question “when is a machine thinking?” 


Inspired by Mr. Turing's work, MCon Inc. has, over the past decade, developed and patented technolgies towards the creation of robots that can think and act like humans more so than any other technology currently in existence.  Using a radically different approach, MCon's founders believe that their technology will serve as the foundation for the coming great era of humanoid robotics.


What differentiates MCon's design, is that rather than programming logical instructions into a system as is done in traditional computing, the MCon robotic controller is equipped with a ‘robotic self’ which includes and internal self-coordinate frame.  Subsequently, all data is programmed into the system in relation to that 'robotic self', utilizing an innovative behavioral programming approach.


An overview of MCon's behavioral programming approach to the design-development of humanoid robots is described in papers available upon request, as are descriptions of the tactile, visual and auditory systems, and verbal phonym sounds generator enabling true human-like speech capability.  All of these systems are controlled by MCon's proprietary Relational Robotic Controller (RRC) ([5] [6] [7] [8] on the ICHR 2013 paper). 


MCon Inc. (short for “Machine Consciousness”) was founded by Dr. Alan Rosen, and incorporated at the Maui Research & Technology Center.


Dr.  Rosen is a physicist, cognitive scientist, and system engineer. He is a pioneer in the space sciences field having served as the lead space scientist for a multitude of NASA's most successful space exploration missions. Dr. Rosen has over 35 years of experience in R&D and large scale system engineering and management. A leader in magnetospheric physics, magneto-cardiography, and magneto-encephalography, he has a PhD in Nuclear Physics, was a professor in Physics, Mathematics, and Space Physics at USC and UCLA, and is the coauthor of 4 books and over 60 technical publications. Until 1992 he served at TRW, as Advanced Systems Manager of the Science and Application Spacecraft business area, as Technical and Managing Laboratory Director of the Space Sciences Laboratory, and as Principal Investigator for NASA and the NIH.
