  • Abstract: This essay revolves around the concepts and processes of Becoming and Individuation where a functional model based on the articulation of an information processing system based on the approaches of the philosopher Gilbert Simondon is evidenced; This research aims to observe a sensorimotor cycle performed by the cognitive system of an Artificial Intelligence agent. To establish this model of biological inspiration, we used the concepts of information and modulation in Gilbert Simondon and information in cybernetics of Norbert Wiener and Stafford Beer. These resources force us to ask ourselves the following question: How does mono-technology and computerization of cultural techniques influence the nature of knowing the affection of being with others (people, things, animals)? To answer this question, an interdisciplinary study (arts, sciences, information technologies) is offered on the effect of this symbiosis and how it can be seen in the full use of knowledge about the fundamentals of living and non-living matter. The architecture is called Qatipana (a Quechua word that denotes the flow of information processing systems), although it cannot be considered as a systems theory, it has the utility of being able to explain some empirical observations that are presented here. In conclusion, the implications and limitations of this model and the research that is being carried out to present its utility and probability as a technodiversified model of the algorithmic cognitive system are part of the issues of communication and affect in the decisions that this cybernetic system provides.
