Using the AI Perlmind codebase as an example, we advise trainees in mind-maintainenance carefully to select a software mind-module in which to specialize on the basis of acquired expertise. No human mind-maintainer will be able to grasp the proverbial big picture of the entire AI Mind as it evolves and spawns over space and time.

2. Hardware

Specialists in AI mind-maintenance must become not only familiar but also deeply knowledgeable about computer and robot hardware.

4. Education and Training

Schools, colleges and universities should offer programs of instruction in the profession of mind-tending and mind-maintaining.
