Computers: are they working for us or are we working for them?
The Problem We Solve
Computers calculate, people cogitate. Computers turn data into information, people turn information into knowledge to comprehend our world. It was a balance that worked for a long time, but now…
The year 2021 was on track to produce 59 zettabytes of data; over 50 times the number of stars in the observable universe: 59,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
And still, the process that turns that data info practical knowledge takes place only in the human mind – one brain at a time.
A New Balance
Combining the human capacity for knowledge with computer memory, speed, and connectivity will produce unlimited productivity.
Like humans, sapiens can learn and communicate knowledge using human language. Sapiens have common sense and can explain their reasoning. Like computers, sapiens process data and information, never forget, connect, and do everything else computers can do.
And give humans what they have always wanted…more time to do exactly what they want and are uniquely talented to do.
Do you really need a Better AI?
If your problem is simply a matter of statistics and finding patterns in all the data that is created; maybe not.
Today, the technical community, including Big Tech, government, and academia have embraced artificial neural networks (ANNs) and Machine Learning (ML) as their preferred methodology. While this “data science” has led to many amazing applications that are impacting the way we live and work, it is generally agreed that no significant breakthroughs toward achieving knowledge, genuine language comprehension, or Artificial General Intelligence have been made, nor is there an agreed upon roadmap.
Finally Machine Knowledge and Cognitive Learning
Sapiens are endowed with a meticulously constructed (patented) “cognitive core” for transforming information into knowledge. We say that humans are “intelligent animals” but really, it is knowledge – the practical product of our intelligence – that separates us from other animals. We build machines to amplify our natural powers. To combine the creation, communication, and application of knowledge – our uniquely human skill with the bandwidth, connectivity, and extendibility of computers – is to create the ultimate machine.
Like humans, sapiens have common sense, learn, and communicate knowledge using human language and can explain their reasoning. Like computers, sapiens never forget, process data and information endlessly, and can connect with any source.
Combining human capacity for knowledge and reasoning with computer memory, speed and connectivity will produce unlimited productivity.
Natural Language Comprehension
Sapiens have an internal model of the world that embodies the same concepts and relationships that people recognize as objects of their own thoughts. This model is, by design, completely independent of natural language vocabulary and grammar. This process is cognitive learning or comprehension.
The result is something that has not existed before: a digital entity with the core knowledge needed to understand the meaning of natural language. In short, our technology can do what no other software can do because it is the only software that understands what the words actually mean.
