The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence in the Modern World

By | June 25th, 2014|Categories: Futurism & Technology|Tags: , |

Technology has developed through the implementation of innovative ideas to supplement outdated methods of approaching technical problems. This has played a great part in saving time, costs, and promoting the overall production in the manufacturing industries. Reflecting on definition, it is agreeable that artificial intelligence (A.I.) is the intelligence enhanced by computer software to the human beings that helps in the performance of their duties. In other words, it is the art and engineering of producing intellectual machines. However, it is worth noting that artificial intelligence is a wide-ranging field comprising several ranges of research. Some of these areas take account of decision-making, computer vision, and language recognition among others. In the recent years, artificial intelligence has developed other challenges containing machine learning in addition to robotics all together. Despite the challenges, one can concur that artificial intelligence has played a key role towards enhancement of the mind of a human being. […]

Cognitive Polyphasia, and Why We Contradict Ourselves

By | June 24th, 2014|Categories: Personal Development, Psychology & Health, Self-Improvement, Spirituality|Tags: , , , |

Serge Moscovici, a french social psychologist, coined the term Cognitive Polyphasia in the 80s. Same guy behind the social representation theory (another interesting read). This seemingly innocent frame of mind, is all about having contradicting thoughts and multiple frame of references to explain an event either to themselves or to other people. In other words, or in the words of Orwell, its “double-think”. E.g., you go to the gym everyday for a week, justifying it to yourself as you’re a motivated individual with goals. You don’t go for a month after, and you build up your castle of excuses to justify it to yourself. “I don’t have the time”, or “I won’t build muscle easily” or a host of other frame of minds. […]

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. ~John Quincy Adams Few qualities in man have shaped the history of nations as much as the great and perpetually admired virtue of charisma.

Every leader that has left a mark on humanity possesses a special type of quality that allows them to speak and others listen with their hearts. This magical quality called Charisma is not only for the great, thanks to psychology, we can all experience a nibble of greatness. […]

Is Life Simply a Computer Simulation?

By | June 22nd, 2014|Categories: Food for thought, Self-Improvement|

John Conway (Phd Mathematician from Princeton) in the 70’s developed a simple game based on a checker board. The rules were as follows: 1. A single checker piece with less than two other checker pieces, dies due to a lack of tribe. 2. A single checker piece with two or three checker pieces lives on to the next generation – the perfect balance of resource & consumption. 3. A single checker piece with more than three neighbours dies, – limited resources creates competition & survival of the fittest. 4. If three checker pieces are close enough, a new checker piece will emerge – procreation producing new children. Here’s what it looks like: […]

Aren’t We All, Just Livers?

By | June 20th, 2014|Categories: Food for thought, Personal Development, Self-Improvement, Spirituality|Tags: , |

Aren’t we all just Livers? Living in the now, while constantly battling the then. Rocks, plants, minerals, life, & death – all packed into one big mush. One can say that you are a separate event from your death, but that would be wrong if you believe in the Big Bang. The universe started from a single point of immense density and energy. We blew up and we danced a spectacular dance for millennia to come. Also, Livers. […]
