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 - Hypothesis

Stored Purpose
That a system can be designed to “exist” at an arbitrary or abstract state of higher organization and lower entropy
such that elements of the system will sustain the defined state indefinitely for the duration of its existence.

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.

An executive who works half days on Fridays loves making cherry pies. She loves selecting cherries, kneading dough, caramelizing the sugar and butter when making a perfect crust. As a result, even in the limited hours she has available each week, she makes more pies than she or her family should eat.

A family drives to a shopping area in downtown San Diego. They stop at a railroad crossing for an approaching train. When the train speedily passes before the car, another train breaks and waits. Mom works for Amtrak, so trains are a frequent family conversation topic. One of the twin teenage daughters asks, “Mother, could these two trains have collided?”

In a Bigbox Retail establishment, an official store Greeter leads interactions with all guests to the location.
As each customer arrives in the store, they approach a registration kiosk and touch their personal mobile communicator and form of payment to a grey check-in display. This enables them to use their mobile device as a “shopping disk” for the length of stay. If they don’t have a communicator, they can pickup an in-store disk that looks like a small calculator.

What is Stored Purpose?

Questions and Answers
A system of technologies that enable the processes of intelligence to run on commercially available electronics, e.g. an intelligent computer.
Intelligence is defined as system that sustains a logical definition of “right” and “wrong” states called Identity, and uses some motive force to process measured regions of context beyond Self with respect to those states, minimally able to use some technology to gather measured states and some technology to align measured states of Self with Identity. For example, a very simple intelligent system’s Identity could define salty water as good, and warm water as good. It could understand some region of context in the Pacific ocean by using its bio technology to measure states of saltiness and warmth and its alignment or lack there of with preferred states. The system would finally use technology such as swimming feet, to re-align its Self with Identity when necessary.
The technology has six parts:
1. Stored purpose computer - The overall intelligent system architecture, a Gia based system compatible with commercial electronics
2. Platonic Forms (Forms) - A symbolic analog of the shape and causality that can define Knowledge, Goals, Purpose or Identity
3. General intelligence algorithm (Gia) - A computable representation of the facets of intelligent existence
4. Agent - An entity created when Identity and Gia computational resources are instantiated in a logical body
5. Symbolic network - The logical body of a multi-agent system
6. Metacomputer fabric - The physical body of a multi-agent system.

Statement on Labor and Automation

Statements
On Feb 15, 1962, US President John F. Kennedy declared automation “as the major domestic challenge of the Sixties -- to maintain full employment at a time when automation, of course, is replacing men.”
Nearly fifty years later, a typical American worker made no product of labor. He shopped in malls and markets where except for groceries, medicines, financial services and easily copyable media, the goods he or she consumed were made in another country and often bought with money borrowed from the savings of citizens in another country.

Illustration: A place for Stored Purpose computers in my practice?

Medical Practice
The lab notes the proximity of my patient, loads the scheduled imaging procedure, and illuminates the suite before we even press open the door. When scanning is complete, the results are displayed on the near HD display with potential anomalies highlighted for my review. After our consultation, my instructions are exchanged automatically with the pharmacy nexus and the patient’s assistant agent, helping to keep him on track with medications and exercise.

Education
When we enter the classroom in the morning, the students' computers have all the handouts, assignments and references I scheduled for the day. My prepared presentations auto-play at the right time. The system knows each student's learning style and abilities and provides them with the smartly tailored subset of learning materials. Parents' calendars are auto-synchronized with scheduled trips, conferences and recitals. The system monitors student progress and provides me with a comprehensive report and recommendations...

Statement on Automation and Small Business

Statements
The face of small business has radically changed over recent decades as community designs have physically separated retail establishments from residential dwellings. Franchises have replaced most neighborhood based “mom and pop” shops knowledgeable of both customers and products. Remote manufacturing and operationally efficient distribution companies have replaced community based artisans and manufacturers. Intelligent Automation offers a path for a return of the artisan and the small retailer, as smart tools will enable even the smallest business to participate in a new model of coopetition as they become both customers and suppliers to the competition.

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 - 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 - 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 - 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.
