Brains, Minds & Personalities[edit]

Very advanced computers begin to develop various types of autonomous programming and are referred to with other specialized terms:

Brains, Minds & Personalities
Term Remarks
Brain A Brain is a sophisticated Bright Age Information Technology computer without a significant personality. [1]
Mind A Mind is a sophisticated Bright Age Information Technology computer with a significant personality. [2]
Personality A Personality is a Bright to Brilliant Age feature of sophisticated computers capable of high levels of autonomous thought and independent decision-making. [3]

NOTES: the differences between a brain and a mind are very negligible. There is significant overlap between the definitions, both formally and informally. As a generality, brains are lower performance and minds are higher performance. Brains were first operated without personalities. Later models began to include lower quality personalities. All minds are designed from the onset to include high quality personalities.
