Review: Augmented Intelligence – Smart Systems and the Future of Work and Learning

Daniel Araya (editor)

5 Stars Best Available Overview, Most “Experts” Still in Denial

Augmented Intelligence is the new meme that goes beyond Collective Intelligence. The editor has done the best possible job of collecting inputs from top people, a few of whom I know such as Jim Spohrer, and I recommend the book without reservation. Certainly it is my hope that the editor will be recognized as a rising star and given the freedom to do more outreach to include travel including China, toward what I hope will be a more multinational follow-on book.

My own chapter, “Augmented Intelligence with Human-Machine Integrity: Future-Oriented Hybrid Governance Integrating Holistic Analytics, True Cost Economics, and Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE) is free online, click linked title to read it.

The Foreword by Ann Pendleton-Julian and John Seely Brown is helpful and makes the point that the varied contributors ask some really big questions about man-machine interfaces and posssibilities. They also point out that the ideas in this book go far beyond Smart Cities and the Internet of Things and toward new forms of man-machine symbiosis to the point of bio-morphing.

Subtly but directly they point out that everyone (I would say except me) is being stove-piped and reductionist, and avoiding the obvious need for “a holistic framework for working toward a desired end, not a runaway default future full of unintended and unanticipated consequences of monumental proportion.”

I cannot help but think of 5G, the new aspestos on steroids, vastly more genocidal and ecocidal  than microwaves and Monsanto’s RoundUp.

Daniel Araya, contributing editor, pays tribute to Douglas Engelbart, whom I was honored to know, in his Introduction, which is a very valuable overview of the book’s substance.

QUOTE (2): The key insight of IA research is the recognition that human intelligence and machine intelligence are complementary rather than adversarial.”

Citing Moravec, he points out that contrary to popular perception, it is knowledge-based labor rather than hand-based labor, that is most vulnerable to computerization. I agree but only because our decision-makers are ignorant and do not understand that heuristics apply only to known patterns — there is no substitute for human artistic, creative, imaginative insight.

As I myself read the rest of the book, it occurred to me that most of the authors are on a path to self-destruction — they really believe that all knowledge can be computerized, that all data can be digitized (they are oblivious to our current state of 1% of 1% of 1% of 1% of 1%). I have a note  to myself, these people need to read Nassim Nicholas Taleb, particularly Anti-Fragile: Things That Gain From Disorder, and Skin in the Game: Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life. The future, in my view, will be LOCAL.

This is not a book that addresses — apart from my own chapter — the true cost of computing run amok. Computing runs amok because our decision-makers are ignorant and corrupt and that is precisely how the Deep State wants them.

This is not a book that addresses the desperate need to restore art, music, and play to our children’s as well as our own lives — this is a book that assumes — apart from my own chapter — that all knowledge can be digitized and humans may ultimately be assimilated.

This is not a book that is strong on ethics and values that are the foundation for family, community, country, and ecological integrity.

This IS a book that the absolute best in the field and the finest possible starting point to understand where we are and where the bulk of the experts — most of them with access to far greater resources than I can access — plan  to go.

Whether you favor the military-industrial-financial-intelligence rush toward Artificial Intelligence (AI) or not, this book is essential reading and an extraordinary contribution to literature at the intersection of dumb machines and mostly dumb humans.

Dealing with Shattered Illusions, Beliefs and Self-Concepts

(Suzanne Kane) When everything you hold dear turns out to be a sham, when what you believe is a lie and how you view yourself crumbles, life can be empty, painful, and without joy. How can you come back from such personal deficits? It isn’t easy or quick, yet there is a way of dealing with shattered illusion, beliefs and self-concepts.

The post Dealing with Shattered Illusions, Beliefs and Self-Concepts appeared on Stillness in the Storm.

Clif High: Antarctica Unveiled (Four Videos)

Clif High has a patent on computer-assisted reading technology which allows reading from computer screens at up to 2000 words per minute. Reaching into other areas of hidden potential within language use by humans, he has been developing a system of software internet agents (like search engines use) and other proprietary processing methods to predict future events. The software project, begun in 1997, captures near-real-time changes in language patterns within internet discussions. Then, employing radical linguistic techniques of his own devising, he develops a model which anticipates future events with some seeming accuracy. The processing has, at its core, a method of assigning emotional values to complex content and time carry-values to predict changes in future behavior based on how people are using language now.

Four Videos with Text Summaries Below the Fold

Part 1:  Why did Clif take interest in this mystery? What say web-bot about it? What happened there in the late 90ies? Why was it promoted for tourism after that? What’s the large magnetic anomaly under the ice? Why’s all satellite images censored & manipulated? What did Russians find in Lake Vostok? Are there really hot zones? Was there a nuclear meltdown in the 70ies? Where was Atlantis? Was Admiral Byrd right? What say the Ancients? What happens if the ice melts? And learn how Earth grows…

Part 2: We move through history with topics like: What’s the Expanding Earth theory implications for Antarctica? Why is most ancient habitation zones submerged? Is Mars a dead planet? What say Salish & Jain about former civilizations? What’s the Royal belief? Were humans incarcerated by ancient invaders at Antarctica? Was it frozen due to war? Is humanity a hybrid species? Were we once 600 billion people? Is the Sun cause to climate change & ice ages? Is Smithsonian destroying history? What did Nazis discover in New Swabia? What happens to polar expeditions? Who stole Cliff’s Antarctica data? And hear about his Giant pyramid images.

In this crescendo closer Clif deals the final cards of the SP enigmas, incl. the 4 basic scenarios: Ancient Civ, Nazis, Aliens, & Hollow Earth. Some issues raised: What’s his original info before blue chicken pollution? Why did polar scientists suddenly get ill? What’s the weird energy radiation from SP to Hawaii? Is an ancient village uncovered? What power players visits & why? What say the Salish about sky people? Why was SP nuked in late 50ies? What’s the origin to polar lights? Why are globalist corporations there? Why did U.K. battle over Falklands? Is UFO’s from Inner Earth via polar holes? And hear what horrors the night vision goggles revealed..

Clif brings us up to speed on recent developments not covered in the main series. Some topics touched: What can we learn from the Strava Heat Map fiasco? Why’s Antarctic traffick exploding? Why hiring thousands for civil service occupations? What’s up with the incredible security clearance? What of the cruise and flight tourism? How’s the Voyager relevant? Is the Classified Space Program relocated south? What to deduct from the recent Giza Pyramid energy phenomenon disclosure? Why is there still unclaimed areas while fighting over claimed land? + Learn a hack to get from pole to pole by Google Earth zooming…

Betty Boop: Dear TSA Are We to Be Naked From Now On?

Police To Use TSA-Style Scanners To Spy On People In Public Places

TSA-style body scanners are coming to public spaces, and that should scare the hell out of everyone.

If you thought the NYPD’s Z-Backscatter vans and police mini-Z’s were intrusive, you have not seen anything yet.

Soon, nowhere will be safe from Big Brother’s prying eyes, as police prepare to use HEXWAVE to spy on people in public spaces.

Kp Message 5-31-19… A Couple of “Final Notes” on the Kauai Mission…

Before I “flatten out” and go to bed, I wanted to make a couple of notes about this mission.

Yes, there were “things observed” and “things done” here and there. But I sense that 5-29-19 11:11 (PM) ceremony “properly” completed (whatever that means) the process that we began on 5-8 at Kilauea, followed by that of 5-14 on Mauna Kea, followed by this one at Kalalau (reference: this Kp blog post)…

  1. Brought a type of “Fire enlightenment” to the entire planet.
  2. All that is not harmonic with the raising of the planetary vibration(s) will essentially “burn itself out”. This can be people, groups, individual traits, personality “quirks”, etc.
  3. All that is harmonic (aligned) with the raising of the planetary vibration(s) will find themselves in a (seemingly) entirely new place. The only “work” that needs to be done is a releasing of the grip on old vibration(s), and following the Higher Guidance.
  4. Planetary Consciousness Vibration rises exponentially, compared to the “slow progression” of the past.
  5. “Great Balls of Fire” is an appropriate term for this.
  6. The only things consumed by these “Great Balls of Fire” will be lower vibrational constructs.

“Enjoy the Show” on Planet Earth!
“Enjoy the Ride” into the Light!
