I used to have a site Actual Intelligence, but abandoned it in case people thought it was some ego thing. For me there is only intelligence and artificial doesn’t factor. The variables in life are mad and the understanding tiny, so my goal is to create aeoba type life. We will see where it takes us, I think fixing data and comms first for us all will be a huge help, we people will supply much of the intelligence though and if we allow it to, I think the network can ‘understand’ some things for us. I am terrified of ‘big data’ though, to me its inviting decisions on all these variables with people who do not understand the implications of bombing a country or sacking staff based on a bottom line.
So fix data, comms and grow the calculation ability with semantic type understanding of data inputs to be used by qualified people. Then we may be able to detect unbalanced data, propaganda and uneven news and data in different countries. As we move forward, then perhaps very modular capabilities, such as testing, sharing and calculating code modules will help a lot. The ability to share info between devices and people will likely play a big factor as we drive down loss and increase efficiency in our system.
I think in summary, the future looks to be brilliant and the march forward of human intelligence will accelerate when we can get this network rolled out and hopefully push forward what the Internet has allowed us to glimpse and that is the exposure of corrupt and evil practices, not by the terrorists, but from our own corporations and elected governments. Making them honest and more transparent is probably evolutionary and unstoppable. This part I hope will happen quickly. Everything else, well …
The Internet has certainly not made us dumb or evil. on balance doing it right should enhance us as the network grows. I feel just now we are aware there are people out there, we got a glimpse and it has been taken away again, I hope we don’t provide the glimpse of what’s possible, but actually connect all of the worlds people and allow them to form the intelligence I feel sure they have locked inside them as a group/species. We are all better every day and all we need is the channels to work together to make magic happen.
Who said we had lofty goals
