Algorithmic Complexes, Alpha Male Brains, and Winnie the Pooh

Posted on July 19, 2017

Massively complex complexes of algorithms Let me come straight out with it and state, for the record, that I believe the best current truth we have is that we humans, along with all other living beings, are simply massively complex complexes of algorithms. What do I mean by that? Well, let’s take a passage from the terrific Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari, which […]

Long Short-Term Memory, Algorithms for Social Justice, and External Cognition

DARPA funds graph analytics processor Last week I posted a bunch of links pointing towards quantum computing. However, there are also other compute initiatives which also offer significant potential for “redefining intractable” for problems such as graph comparison, for example, DARPA’s HIVE which aims to create a 1000x improvement in processing speed (and at much lower power) on this problem. […]

Quantum Supremacy, Correlating Unemployment, and Buddhists with Attitude

Posted on June 7, 2017

Quantum supremacy As Ben and I have discussed before on an Epsilon Theory podcast, my view is that quantum computing is going to be truly, truly transformational by “redefining intractable”, as 1Qbit say, over the coming years. My conviction around quantum continues to grow and — to put a pretty big stake in the ground — I believe, […]

Complex Systems, Multiscale Information and Strange Loops

As part of the ET 2.0 expanded sandbox, I’ve asked Neville Crawley to write a weekly-ish “Down the Rabbit Hole” column with his observations on what he calls Big Compute, I call non-human intelligences, and the rest of the world calls AI. This is the biggest revolution in markets and the world today. Neville will […]
