I am pleased t announced that my non-profit, The Arch Mission Foundation, has installed the first Global Knowledge Vault, inside a deep underground bunker in the mountains in Switzerland.
Great article about it here.
I have developed a number of specialized GPTs for professionals and enterprises. This set of GPTs focuses on higher-level reasoning and knowledge work. The set also includes a number of experimental GPTs for reasoning and problem solving.
This article focuses on a potential approach for advancing AI capabilities via dynamic parameter adjustment of large language models (LLMs) like GPT-4. This approach is central to making AI more adept at handling a wide range of tasks, focusing on two key elements: the dynamic adjustment of parameters and the enhancement of sampling methods.… Read More “Supercharging AI Task Performance with Dynamic Parameter Adjustments”
The advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) is taking an intriguing turn with the concept of higher-order AI systems trained on the network of first-order AIs. This approach aims to transcend traditional token-by-token generation, focusing instead on generating tokens that lead to the best possible outcomes.… Read More “Exploring Higher-Order AI: Training on First-Order AI Networks for Optimal Path Outcomes”
The evolution of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has surpassed mere computation and data processing, leading to the emergence of distinct levels of AI sophistication. Each level represents a leap in capabilities, complexity, and potential impact on our world. In this article, we explore these four levels, delving into their functionalities and implications.… Read More “The Four Levels of AI: Steps to Self-Evolution”
This paper posits a future scenario where the unique attributes of both human and artificial intelligence (AI) form a transformative partnership. Coined as ‘Exponential Intelligence,’ this amalgam of human-AI capabilities has the potential to revolutionize how we approach problem-solving, collaboration, and innovation.… Read More “Exponential Intelligence: A New Vision for the Future Symbiosis of Human Intelligence with AI”
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”
… Read More “Game of Life in ChatGPT”You are about to witness a simulation of Conway’s Game of Life, a classic cellular automaton. In this game, a 20×20 grid of cells will be displayed.
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”
It’s very interesting to realize that we are the last generation – the last voices – of the pre-AI era on this planet.
What should we do differently, if anything, knowing this?
Tool-use was one of the defining characteristics of Homo Sapiens. Ironically it may also be the thing that leads to our obsolescence.
In the first phase of the IT revolution, from the invention of computers up through the Web, computers worked for humans – as tools – and humans maintained the computers.… Read More “Nature Red in Reads and Writes”
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.
The Metaverse must include ALL the layers.… Read More “There are No True Metaverse Apps Yet”
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.
In this month’s podcast: get your lugholes around some accents and dialects with @VoicesofEnglish, join the @OrkneyLibrary bookmobile and discover the library boldly going where no library has gone before with @archmission #AnythingButSilent https://t.co/6mCDPqBemb pic.twitter.com/waxTGsfI0E— The British Library (@britishlibrary) August 15, 2019
One small disc for man, one giant library for mankind…
The Lunar Library, produced by my nonprofit charity, The Arch Mission Foundation, was crash-landed on the Moon on April 11, in the Israeli Beresheet lander. But despite the crash, at least 60,000 images and pages etched into nickel films, survived intact and are now on the surface of the Moon.… Read More “My Lunar Library has Landed – There is Now a 30 Million Page Library on the Moon”
Today, we are launching Fuzionaire Diagnostics.
Technological progress often comes from incremental improvements to existing technologies, rather than major evolutionary leaps. But occasionally there is a truly fundamental advance that improves the entire foundation on which we are building. This is the type of leap we are announcing today.… Read More “Announcing Fuzionaire Diagnostics: a True Breakthrough in Chemistry, Applied to Saving Lives”
Today my foundation, The Arch Mission Foundation, announced our mission to land the Wikipedia (and other datasets) on the Moon in 2020 with Astrobotic. This will create a permanent backup of human civilization that will persist on the Moon for billions of years.… Read More “Announcing our Mission to Land the Wikipedia on the Moon!”
Today we began to reveal a little more of what we’ve been working on in stealth mode, since last December. It’s a new science and technology startup studio, based in Los Angeles, called Magical.
You might think of Magical as a moonshot factory, except that we’re not just aiming for the moon.… Read More “Magical, My New Startup Studio in LA, Comes Out of Stealth”
The Wall Street Journal’s CIO Journal covered the announcement of Bottlenose’s Nerve Center 3.0 platform today. They did a nice job capturing the big idea here.
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”
I’m very proud of the team and what we built here. Truly the next-generation of business intelligence, powered by AI and streaming analytics.… Read More “Bottlenose Named Gartner Cool Vendor in In-Memory Computing”

Despite the media chatter, I am still bullish on Twitter – as should be any investor who understands the social network’s fundamentals and true potential.
I was recently interviewed by Blake Morgan at Forbes, on the subject of “Building Influence in the Digital Age” — listen to the interview here:

Peter Drucker’s grandson Nova Spivack, CEO of Bottlenose, says that Drucker would have felt today that real influencers are not spending a lot of time on social media.
Interesting ranking of futurists by analyzing their social and Web influence. I rank in the top 20. Of course, I couldn’t have predicted that.
The fundamental problem that Twitter has is engagement. If engagement can be corrected, the whole Twitter ecosystem (and their stock price) will improve.
Improving Twitter engagement comes down to fixing the core consumption experience.
First of all what’s wrong with the consumption experience?… Read More “How to Solve Twitter’s Engagement Problem: Add Semantics”
