Biological Computation

Context: Workshop: Do living things compute? More fascinating collaboration from the Santa Fe Institute. In short and in gestalt: it all seems to invoke a form of computation that is neither particular or distributed but is both simultaneously; that is not finite or discrete in the sense of having easily-defined or simply-encapsulated boundaries; and it's…

An Autonomous Science ?

The unfolding patterns, exploratory revelations and emergent complexity of Artificial Intelligence may not ultimately reveal itself to be as useful to us as we (and all our aspirations) turn out to be to it.

A Liquid Logic and System of History

My problem is, and pretty much always has been, just how to introduce, articulate and successfully communicate new concepts of representation and comprehension when the paradigm and assumptive frameworks of conventional wisdom fight tooth and nail against novelty or deep (i.e. axiomatic) conceptual, methodological and theoretical innovation ?

Cultural Algorithm

The dynamic activity of the methods, frameworks and algorithms of cultural encryption indicate that the nodes in any sufficiently sophisticated communications or information transmission system are secondary considerations to the primary functioning of a recursive self-replication of those same methods, frameworks and algorithms.
