THE NEW BUZZ ON THE STREET – AGAIN
I know, it’s the 21st Century and therefore everybody should now be enthusiastic about Robotics and very intelligent Artificial Intelligence.
We have watched as google robots tirelessly chase folks through the woods doing impressive backwards somersaults and army types wave chequebooks at cool-sounding companies producing big killer robot dogs for whom no obstacle is insurmountable, whilst in the cinema, Hollywood has dazzled us with visions of the next upgrade to the concept of living with dazzling cyborgs and their clever nerd creators.
If things are to be believed therefore, the ‘Rockstar idol’ treatment given to the coders of the upgraded Atari-engine Battlebots amongst stage-lighting and smoke machines seems sure to mean that the ultimate challenge of the creating the end-game of the next robotic Transhuman evolution seems to be happening right now.
However, recently presented as if sudden and new news is the elite-sounding stuff going on about Swarm intelligence which is alleged to be the answer to all human computation problems.
The first swarm studies in Chaos theory were done by Chris Langton at the Santa Fe Institute in the early 1990’s nearly 30 years ago and frankly all talk about swarms today seems totally lame in comparison to these genius level breakthroughs in the modelling and application of the natural order of chaos to human e.g. infrastructure, problems.
Even with Elon Musk’s totally inappropriate psyop attempt to bury the memory forever of the incredible almost ever-lasting electric car Nikola Tesla failed to get approval for in 1904 by calling his lame but expensive electric car a ‘Tesla’ and even after spending an unnecessary amount of hydrocarbon energy pushing his red car into space – it does go to show that the powers that be who gave us Elon Musk spare no expense to embarrass the human race in front of whatever or whoever shows up in our solar system these days.
It’s in fact more like our planetary warders are posting ‘keep out’ signs for all to see.
The similarity of Elon Musk to Robert Downey Jnr portraying the billionaire behind superhero Iron Man at his rockstar arms conventions is likely not a coincidence – even down to the moustache !!
That however doesn’t deflect from the abject failure of humans amongst a reptilian and grey controlled continuum or hive matrix around this gulag Earth to sort out the obvious and phoney control systems of paradoxes and people that keep them blinded and distracted in these various technological and intellectual cul-de-sacs.
Speaking of hives, control matrices, insectoid and arguably demonic life, the very latest cutting-edge intellectual aspirations and buzz that the youth of today are to tune into is the swarm model for computation.
Surely there is enough sub-routines today amongst the collection of attuned and programmable, minor and major physical objects and technologies, databases and assets to facilitate problem recognition, measurement, and reaction, deployment and solution in real time for just about anything.
In fact generational and infinite coding jobs and new terms and languages must be getting generated daily – rather like the new marketing and promotion jobs arising amongst the digital clamour and babel of Facebook.
The problem really is that not very much at all of any of this has much, if anything to do with the real definition of ‘artificial intelligence’.
It is totally false and misleading to infer and suggest that by externally and humanly setting criteria for some issue that can be recognised by an allocated sensory apparatus that this response process, however complex, is the final step in Artificial Intelligence.
That somehow amongst the buzz of that information chaos the long dreamed of Transhuman ‘Singularity’ is going to get kick-started.
This therefore seems an appropriate time to mention my own solution to the impossible and impassable paradox at the very heart or server core of all of the phoney razzmatazz.
The Halting Problem illustrated by Turing to paraphrase – happens because a computer when parsing and analysing something it cannot recognise will just simply halt and then make infinite reference to all and every infinite label it can find.
My own AI model contains a limited independent variety of options at its core and therefore cannot be phased by the unknown if its own data can reference this system called ‘Tripartite Essentialism’, Hennessey, 1991
You must admit that’s a pretty long time to ignore a reasonable, programmable, logical and metaphysical and revolutionary solution to one of the most allegedly sought after social and industrial needs on our planet.
But then free energy, free transport, free water and food, free Robotics and factories, Free leisure, free souls etc does seem a great contrast to the Dystopia and Agenda 21 purges we are constantly being lashed with these days.
The negative stuff does rather drone on, like the demonic bees in an alien insectoid hive, and however inspired we may feel to sweep out the honeycomb or regulate the wax or the hives internal temperature or humidity – and there must be all sorts of buzz surrounding the number crunching amongst the pollen to honey to viable nymph ratios – however inspiring to some that may be – it isn’t artificial intelligence.
Like Plato in his early years when he wrote about his three-tier social caste system in his ‘Republic’ so beloved of the social elite today – the alpha caste were e.g. the Queen and the aristocracy. The Beta caste were the soldiers and, the gamma caste – basically the bulk of the Republic/hive biomass – were the labourers ie. The drones.
Central to the Republic was the ‘noble lie’ which ensured the continuity of governance based on the idea that the masses or drones were on a need to know – probably about how good the lives of the alpha caste aristocracy was etc.
If folks want to work on; drone on about useful but basic social number-crunching fair enough – but that isn’t about a future transcending the human, it is more about a future dehumanising and lessening the human.
To continue the human/insectoid analogy …
Consider this though – that my own top down AI system (Tripartite Essentialism), with its Knowledge Representation System that has direct links to the performance and measurement of the physical (even super-physical) Universe – which operates with, through, despite, because of, etc any and every known or unknown system in this or any cosmos that has an Input a Process and an Outcome – if only a fraction of that claim was possible with this allegedly Universal AI, then this is the sort of Robotics for the Queen and her aristocracy – that is going to be a true asset in finding out about places the next generation of Queens may be exploring to set up a new hive and swarm.
Here on Earth though, reality just doesn’t operate like that.
Endless wars and poverty and toxicity with real Utopian breakthroughs being ignored and dispensed with by the elite at every emergent stage.
Cul de sacs, smoke and mirrors and arenas full of enthusiastic youth drooling over someone who made an Atari playstation interact with tools in changing conditions – isn’t about real executive AI.
One day when the fomented confusion is made to stop on the planets surface, people will be able to identify at least one fact – that in the thousands of years since Moses there have been billions of people living on Earth in much the same conditions as those early Israelites whilst deep underground – non-human activity has been very advanced, unrelenting, and not very compassionate and if it has interfered in our difficult and hungry surface-dwelling lives – it has always been to make sure we never make the right connections we need to evolve and ultimately escape.
