Fractal AI "recipe"

Now that the algorithm is public and people is trying to catch up, it can be of help -mainly to us- to have a simplistic schema of what it does, with no theories nor long formulae, nothing extra but the raw skeleton of the idea, so you can read it, get an idea, and go on with your life.

I will try to simplify it to the sweet point of becoming... almost smoke!

Ingredient list:

  1. A system you can -partially- inspect to know its actual state -or part of it- as a vector.
  2. A simulation you can ask "what will happen if system evolves from initial state X0 for a dt".
  3. A distance between two states, so our "state space" becomes a metric space.
  4. A number of "degree of freedom" the AI can push.
