Jolting Space!

Jolting technologies provide such a disruptive advantage, that the ability to apply them across different fields, cross contaminating and taking advantage of the increasing rate of acceleration, is irresistible. SpaceX is designing, prototyping and testing a new generation of spacecraft called Starship. Starship serial number 8, SN8, flew to the altitude of 12.5 kilometres just …

Collective Intelligence

We take advantage every day of our collective intelligence in order to keep pace with the evolution of a complex world, using the tools that civilization has built over thousands of years. These tools allowed us to organize ever larger groups of people in ways that increasingly leverage their best abilities, instead of just ordering …

Intel Is Jolting

At a recent conference on the future of electronics manufacturing, the Chief Architect of Intel, Raja Koduri, presented a compelling picture for delivering a 1000 times increase in the power of AI systems by 2025. He counts on the ecosystem of third parties, as well as Intel’s engineering prowess, to achieve a 4x improvement in …

NVIDIA Proves that AI Is Jolting

Jolting Technologies are those characterized by an increasing rate of acceleration. When I formulated the paradigm of Jolting Technologies, I had very few data points to start from. I looked at the increasing acceleration in the power of AI applications. In particular I criticized Stanford University’s approach which used a linear interpolation on a logarithmic …

We Are All Ambiverts

The labels of extrovert and introvert represent the extremes of a spectrum. In reality we are all ambiverts, dynamically adjusting our filters as needed. Communicating, whether creating output speaking or writing, or input through listening and reading, requires both cognitive effort and physical energy. It is a necessary component of our lives. When we are …

Topic Extraction

Flooded by increasing amounts of data, we need ever more evolved tools to be able to interpret them and to act upon them. Artificial Intelligence tools, based on natural language processing, image recognition using neural networks, and via many other approaches, are assisting us to understand the information, including what we ourselves produce. Today computer …

Jolting AI

Between 2012 and 2018 the power of the infrastructure available for applications in artificial intelligence increased over three hundred thousand times. If it followed Moore’s law, it would have been much less, around 7 times or so. Stanford University in its 2019 report on AI, and in a blog post OpenAI analyzed and illustrated this …

Island Ecosystems

The ecosystems of islands, whether biological or economical, allow for unprecedented experimentation, supported by their natural isolation. I’m in Malta, where Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain technologies are being actively supported by the local regulator, giving a clear platform, and sandboxes to try to see what works. Malta has a history of resilience, a small nation …
