I agree with you that it’s time to begin a discussion on genetic algorithms. Are you familiar with r3.0? With their supporting international community they are developing a number of blueprints to support transition to a new regenerative economic system in which data and algorithms are key components. The Ex Summary in the r.3.0 Data Blueprint summarised as follows (and in the diagram below) states
“the quality of change …. is based on for intermediation of mathematical models and algorithmic metrics as well as the design of data flow architecture and information systems”
to me fundamentally describes the critical “genetic algorithms” issue we could begin to address in this thread and which the dWeb and dWeb “data” commons path forward will need to address from the outset.
I describe what we are working on here as strategic gene therapy or societal genetic engineering in that we inserting new genes into the existing body/system to improve our bodies/systems genetic makeup. To me genetic thinking/language is critical in a transition/evolution from a static mechanical/industrial way of thinking given to one which recognises that we are all actually part of a living system or “Lifebank”.
So well done in starting this discussion. I think it will become increasingly important and can lead to the ability to connect with key international communities such as R.30 with something tangible…
The proposed dWeb commons model path involves an “interconnected community of citizen, community & industries mutual asset pools with ODE exchange cost minimised (as per your intro offer to Glen/Devo) with system profits shared equitably based the intermediation of mathematical models and algorithmic metrics as well as the design of data flow architecture and information systems” i.e. A True future value Access Well-Being GDP or shared prosperity/ algorithm model
So keen to connect you further on this topic i.e. Genetic Algorithms on SAFE particularly in context of how we could apply what we learn thru the dWeb blog/commons model path starting with some smaller scale client side apps/ideas.
