Stored Purpose - H4: Ecopoesis & Space

Stored Purpose
The goal of the Omega Infrastructure is to make possible 100% self sustaining communities on earth, and thus make an escape to space unnecessary. Yet after a century or two gaining experience and expertise regulating ecosystems on earth, we hope humankind may again be ready to journey into distant space.

Stored Purpose - Time Horizons (H1 - H3)

Stored Purpose
Although the introduction of new technology may appear to be rapid, historically its introduction and adaptation has unfolded methodically and in phases... If Stored Purpose were to evolve at the pace of its stored-program predecessor, the first intelligent iPhone “agents” would appear somewhere around 2190. We think progress will come a bit sooner.

Stored Purpose - Organizational Ecology

Stored Purpose
An organization is a single purposeful entity comprised of multiple agents. These agents will act as the organization’s body and execute its Purpose.
An organization is a purposeful part in a greater ecosystem. The greater ecosystem will also be an organization. The top most organization for all organizations will be the planet’s ecosystem.
The resources of an organization will be resources of the greater ecosystem.
An organization that is not a planet’s ecosystem will be one of peer organizations within the ecosystem.
A minimal Goal pursuit capability at a point in context requires member agents: 1) measure states, 2) compare alignment with Purpose, and 3) align organization states with Purpose.
An organization exists at each location in context space where it can pursue Goals to align states of the organization’s Self in Expression context with its defined Purpose. Conversely, an organization does not exist at any point in context where it cannot pursue Goals.
An organization’s Purpose is its aggregate collection of Goals defined in Construction.
An organization’s Self is its aggregate states in Expression, a collection of contexts where the organization employs technology to pursue Goals. Self is the location of the organization at time Now, or Reality. Self is what is aligned by the organization with its Purpose.
An organization’s Identity is the totality of its existence, Purpose expressed as Self and all regulatory features, capabilities and resources known to it.

Stored Purpose - Cortical Mica

Stored Purpose
Cortical Mica was designed to enable Assistant and Nexus class agents to combine abstract and real symbols as a single flat reality context. This was to enable Expression processing compatible with human-style reality streams, also called consciousness.more ...

Stored Purpose - Tissue, Organ and Body Mica

Stored Purpose
Semantic communication makes it possible to design Purpose that spans multiple entities, and thus makes possible the creation of existential intelligence on multiple physical levels. We call this existential range, Multilevel intelligent cellular architecture (Mica). It makes it possible to create a lighting panel that not only pursues the Goals of each light, but can act as an integrated smart light fixture and part of Purpose for higher level of physical structures such as a video, light and sound system or an intelligent theater. Purpose can be defined for each level of existence, yet combined in Construction such that all existential levels are defined in just one Construction-side fabric.more ...

Stored Purpose - Semantic Communication

Stored Purpose
When existential components share the same Construction basis, such as cellular instruments with the same genetic Identity, they are “in communication” in Construction, even if there is no information exchange in Expression. This is a phenomenon we discovered when designing intent propagation for the metacomputer. The result is two components can pursue goals in a coordinated fashion, without information, as long as each has access to the same external state information, we call Context.

Stored Purpose - Higher Existence Levels

Stored Purpose
We defined that the Existence model architecture (Ema) is a building block. Simple existential cellular components can become building material for more complex components. Those new components can be either the technology or larger component of something more complicated. Since all levels have a compatible Construction Translation Expression (CTE) at all levels above molecular, Purpose can be defined once and distributed throughout the system. In a less dynamic system, such as a body, the read-only Purpose of billions of components operating at multiple levels could be stored as a single genetic Identity document.more ...

Stored Purpose - General Intelligence Algorithm - Gia

Stored Purpose
The General intelligence algorithm (Gia) is the engine that translates between the Platonic Forms of Construction and the contextual states of Expression. Its processes sustain intelligent existence by composing Form data to the synthetic file system (SFS) and then processing the results. Each “insert” of a composition to Plan causes a wave, in which dependencies are calculated, sequenced and moved in time to make room for the consequence of prediction. Each wave may create new resource constraints that must be corrected with additional Goal pursuit and subsequent sequencing and prioritization of Plan. Once the “ripples” settle, the process is repeated for each level of existence served by the existential entity. A single metacomputer instrument might have Purpose at the cellular Ema, team Mica and department Mica levels.

Stored Purpose - Synthetic File System

Stored Purpose
The Synthetic File System is the logical gateway to all symbols, objects and logic of a Stored Purpose system. It is the information conduit between timespaces and two radically different information models, Construction and Expression. It makes Translation possible. On one side, processes must read and write Platonic Form data, which is symbolic and relative. On the other side, processes must read, write and sequence discrete object states and their consequences across all time.more ...

Curtailment is Cortical Mica Purpose for moderating standard Ema and Mica Goal Pursuit and Cortical Mica “free will” expression. For the latter, Curtailment can amend the Goal Pursuit Plan scheduling process, similar to the concept of human conscience.more ...

Stored Purpose - Philosophy of the Mind

Stored Purpose
To design Stored Purpose, we had to assert answers to many philosophical questions, such as the natures of Existence, Reality and Intelligence. Taking a lesson learned from the difficult path of Artificial Intelligence, we decided to avoid the “top-down” approach of defining a mind with “human-only” qualities, i.e. the differences between chimp and man. Instead we opted to “work our way up,” first defining the differences between a rock and rice grass. This lead us to focus on creating fundamental mechanics of Goal Pursuit, Universal knowledge, existence and the development of the Existence model architecture (Ema). Ema was a gold mine, as it could be used to design almost anything, using a simple trick called recursion.

Stored Purpose - Construction - Purpose Hypergraph

Stored Purpose
We formalized the combination of Platonic Forms and Contextual Fabric as a new information format we called the Purpose Hypergraph.

Stored Purpose - Construction - Contextual Fabric

Stored Purpose
Once a system could store the essence of a symbol so universally that the Goal of lawn maintenance could be applied on Earth and on Mars, a way was needed to store information at specific points in context. This would allow a machine to distinguish between a memory of an actual event on Earth and a fictional event from a story about Mars, or know the precise differences between Greek and American yogurt.more ...
Comments

Stored Purpose - Construction - Purpose

Stored Purpose
Storing a Goal as a Platonic Form was useful, but it was clear that for a system to have real, practical purpose, it must be capable of processing more than one Goal. The Platonic Form’s design was made flexible enough to combine an unlimited collection of Goals.

Stored Purpose - Construction - Platonic Form

Stored Purpose
Before a Goal Form could be written to solve world peace or more practically, mow a lawn, we needed a way to describe and store the meaning of a Goal and the “essence” of all its parts. This would enable a machine to recognize the concept of “mowing the lawn” even when reading a fictional story in which a character trimmed organic crystals outside her home on Mars.more ...

Stored Purpose - Existence Model Architecture - Ema

Stored Purpose
Once timespace theory proved it possible to make a machine that “exists”, Ema was created as physical architecture to create timespaces. Ema was designed in three parts, Construction, Translation and Expression. Like buying a new car, once Ema was developed, we started seeing her architecture in the design of other things, such as atoms, cells and the ecosystem.more ...

Stored Purpose - Timespace Theory

Stored Purpose
Existence requires a continuous processing of alignment between measured and Identity states. In a system of any complexity, the information flow needed to sustain it might be impossible due to constraints in our universe. To get around potential constraints, the speed of light in particular, the design was split into simpler problems. This is an old trick used by scientists and mathematicians. Break a problem into smaller parts and solve what you can today, hopefully learning enough in the process to solve the rest another day.

Stored Purpose - Existence

Stored Purpose
It may seem academic, but something must “exist” before it can know which Goal to pursue. Once something puts a stake in the ground and declares, “I exist,” and then defines the nature of that existence, such that, “I am a single celled organism that swims in warm salty water,” then it can know which Goals to pursue on its own.more ...

Stored Purpose - Goal Pursuit

Stored Purpose
There were two “breakthroughs” needed for the metacomputer to be a host for intelligent thought, Goal Pursuit and computable existence. We didn’t initially know either was important, but we did know waiting seconds for fleshy fingers to type on a keyboard or touch display had a negative impact on the performance of a machine able to execute billions of instructions per second.

Stored Purpose - Metacomputer

Stored Purpose
The overall structure and requirements for the Metacomputer dates back to 2006, when we were just beginning to figure out how to make it all work. Today, the stored purpose architectures include hundreds of patent pending components, most of which can be built using off the shelf electronics and open source kernels.

Stored Purpose - Core Concepts

Stored Purpose
The concepts of Stored Purpose can be difficult. This is because we may lack needed vocabulary to consider a world, in which anything but us, is intelligent. Also, once we seriously consider the Purpose of intelligent machines, we are immediately faced with a far more difficult question, specifically, what is our Purpose, what will we do, what will be choose to become?more ...

Stored Purpose - Terminology and Etymology

Stored Purpose
Since much of our work was in the area of intelligence and synthetic minds, when considering terms to best describe the results, we first attempted to use terms from neuroscience. That didn’t work. We wanted the terms to communicate meaning, and unfortunately few (including the members of our team) understood the meaning of words like dendron and axon.

Stored Purpose - Introduction

Stored Purpose
Stored Purpose is a systems architecture designed by inventors Warren Jones and Lana Rubalsky between 2000 and 2010. It combines new developments in physics, information theory and electronics to make possible the first man-made intelligent systems. Stored Purpose makes it possible to run applications called Agents, based upon a new type of genetic software, called purpose hypergraphs. Agents will traverse a next generation cloud fabric that will consist of devices ranging from fixed infrastructure adapters, to personal mobile communication, to metacomputer hosts for private and public cloud infrastructure.

Press Release - Machine Intelligence Invention Could Change Landscape of Science Fiction

Press Release
It’s no longer a question of if or even when smart computers will think like humans. The new question is, what will we do when they get here? Earlier this year, wJones, a small Maryland R&D company submitted the first patent application for what they describe as a range of systems operating at different “levels” of existence. The science is called “stored purpose” and the new devices are called “metacomputers.” Unlike current “stored program” computers, which run programs using an architecture first described by John von Neumann in 1945, the new systems load a type of information first considered by Plato in 380BC, called Platonic Forms. Designers of the new computers use these Forms to build the genetic code of an agent. The agent “genome” is a contextual fabric of knowledge, goals and “purpose.” Since the new metacomputer software will run on everything from your mobile phone to your home thermostat, agents will be able to go where you can’t and do almost anything you need them to.
