Stall on ‘Dreaming’

I’ve stalled on the ‘Dreaming’ size of the project for now realizing that changes I made for ‘Watching’ significantly impact dreaming. With 200,000 percepts and each being able to be in multiple locations for every frame, the LSTM (prediction network) would have an input vector of 5.7 million elements (Including a 19+8 position histogram for each frame). Too big for me to even build a model (at least on my hardware). I took the opportunity to rethink what I should do and came to the conclusion that I’ll need to recompute segments to downscale the LSTM input vector to something feasible. This will be about a month of computation time, so I’ve spent some time working on other projects, such as: “Through the haze of a machine’s mind we may glimpse our collective imaginations (Blade Runner)”.
