AI as a New Paradigm for the Universe: Does the Cosmos Learn Like a Neural Network?
Throughout history, our understanding and interpretation of the universe have been deeply influenced by prevailing technologies. From the mechanistic metaphor of a grand clockwork to the probabilistic nature of a casino, our technological advancements have repeatedly reshaped how we conceptualize our existence.… Read More “Is the Universe an AI?”
Historically, humans have always striven to extend their capabilities using various tools. The horse, one of the earliest and most profound of these tools, revolutionized transportation, agriculture, warfare, commerce and communication. Its domestication, dating back to around 5000 B.C., marked a monumental shift in human progress.… Read More “The Horse and Rider Paradigm for the Age of AI”
I would like to propose a new way of thinking about communities and how they are evolving, with the advent of AI and Large Language Models (LLM’s).
Previously I have written about how group minds are emerging, facilitated by LLMs. Here I will delve a little further into how we can look at types of communities on a spectrum, where the final stage is communities of intelligence, which we are entering now.… Read More “Communities of Intelligence”
The rise of generative AI and system like ChatGPT is going to enable a new type of collective intelligence that I have been writing about for almost 30 years. I call them “group minds”.
Group minds are collective intelligence assistants that extract, learn from, augment, and broker the relationships, communications, knowledge and intelligence of groups.… Read More “Group Minds are Happening”
The diagram below illustrates what I believe the Metaverse is — an all encompassing matrix across all the layers of our experience. Based on this perspective, I don’t yet see any true Metaverse app in the market.
We may be in the early stages of a transition from silicon-based to carbon-based computing. Carbon-based computers may even use DNA to store and process information – and may even be instantiated within living organisms.
I have been speaking about the need for “automating the analyst” for several years. This need is prompted not only by the data deluge — the Cambrian explosion of data volume, velocity, and variety of data sources — but also by the simple reality that enterprises cannot hire the number of data scientists they need to adapt to this new environment.… Read More “AI, BI, and the Necessity of Automating the Analyst”
Cards are fast becoming the hot new design paradigm for mobile apps, but their importance goes far beyond mobile. Cards are modular, bite-sized content containers designed for easy consumption and interaction on small screens, but they are also a new metaphor for user-interaction that is spreading across all manner of other apps and content.… Read More “It’s Time for an Open Standard for Cards”
