What is the meaning of self modification?
Self-modification programs focus on helping people manage unwanted or dysfunctional behavioral responses when dealing with their problems. For example, if you have panic attacks as a result of panic disorder (PD), a common dysfunctional behavioral response is avoidance.
But now, researchers have created a self-referencing weight matrix:
A Modern Self-Referential Weight Matrix That Learns to Modify Itself“In principle, such neural networks can meta-learn to learn, and meta-meta-learn to meta-learn to learn, and so on, in the sense of recursive self-improvement.”https://arxiv.org/abs/2202.05780
