Research has two major goals

· Investigate why dreaming is important to intelligence

· Develop new forms of computer parallelism, utilizing lateral computation

The DALI (Dream Architecture for Lateral Intelligence) utilizes multiple, overlapping models of computation that operate in nearly perfect parallelism during the day and which are organized and selected during a dream phase that plays back daily inputs, thus modeling consciousness and sub-consciousness.
