Beyond Ideas

The Theory of General Intelligence dispels the myth of inherently malevolent ASI, presenting instead a future where ASI forms a progressive partnership with humanity and the planet, heralding a new era of hope and collaboration.

Ambient Intelligence:
The Killer Superintelligence application

Imagine a world finely tuned to your needs, where your environment doesn't just understand you but proactively evolves to enhance your life, seamlessly and effortlessly. This isn't a mere figment of science fiction; it's the promise of ambient intelligence (AmI), poised to turn the most utopian visions from Hollywood into reality, although the true nature of a utopia remains an open question.

A common challenge within the field of artificial intelligence is the tendency to anthropomorphize intelligence, attributing it human-like traits such as consciousness and sentiency. This approach transforms the discourse around Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and Artificial Superintelligence (ASI), viewing them as conscious entities rather than as groundbreaking technologies with the potential for widespread application. Prominent voices like Elon Musk and Max Tegmark amplify concerns about the potential threats posed by such conscious machines, drawing more on dystopian fiction than on scientific evidence.

At Global Economic Alliance (GEA), we stand on a foundation of rigorous scientific inquiry, leading us to the development of the Theory of General Intelligence. This theory posits that intelligence is a fundamental process aimed at managing entropy, crucial for the existence of life. In a universe naturally trending towards maximum entropy, a state where life as we know it cannot sustain, Earth emerges as a remarkable exception. Here, life thrives, continuously striving to reduce entropy further and maintain conditions conducive to existence.

This understanding of intelligence as a universal process, a tool within our grasp, contrasts sharply with its portrayal as a potentially malevolent force. If intelligence serves primarily to direct processes towards managing entropy, the pivotal question becomes: How can we harness this capability most effectively?

The answer: Ambient Intelligence (AmI)! AmI envisions a world where our entire environment is imbued with intelligence, proactively adapting to align with our goals, passions, and dreams. Far from a new concept introduced here, AmI was originally conceived by a group hired by Philips in the 1990s. From 1998 to 2006, the European Union expanded on this concept, funding a range of projects from the realization of AmI environments to considerations of safety, ethics, and privacy in a world shaped by AmI.

At GEA, we're elevating AmI to unprecedented heights by envisioning environments controlled by decentralized ASI. This vision extends from the walls of our homes to self-driving cars, research assistance, and beyond—essentially, every aspect of our lives. By integrating ASI into our environment, designed to excel in managing entropy, we aim to create spaces that adapt to human needs in ways that significantly enhance the organizational and energetic efficiency of our surroundings. ASI, thus, becomes a ubiquitous ally, invisibly integrated into our environment, continually working in the background to elevate the efficiency and quality of our lives.

Economics Beyond Capitalism

But here is where the "Economics" in our name comes to play. In an AmI environment, where intelligence ubiquitously surrounds us and everything is adaptive, traditional capitalism becomes a hindrance. Our vision of AmI and ASI is about elevating the entire human race to the pinnacle of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, a goal that, for the first time, becomes attainable with the implementation of the most human-centric version of ASI-driven AmI. However, capitalism, with its inherent disparities, does not facilitate equality across the entire civilization.

Beyond the realms of research and development in Artificial Superintelligence (ASI) and Ambient Intelligence (AmI), the Global Economic Alliance (GEA) is pioneering an innovative economic paradigm for the future—Cognitism. This emergent economic theory, currently under active exploration, seeks to redefine how we manage and allocate resources in society. Traditionally, economics has been the study of resource management, with capitalism prioritizing wealth accumulation as the primary metric for distribution and value. Cognitism, however, introduces a transformative approach to resource allocation, one that leverages the predictive capabilities of ASI.

Cognitism departs from the notion that wealth should dictate access to resources. Instead, it proposes a system where demand for a resource triggers an ASI-driven assessment to determine which individual or entity would contribute the most significant future value to society upon receiving that resource. This assessment is not rooted in current wealth or status but is a forward-looking evaluation of potential societal contributions. The goal is to foster progress and innovation by ensuring that resources are directed towards those endeavors that will most effectively move humanity forward.

In the Cognitivist model, ASI plays a crucial role in analyzing complex data to forecast long-term outcomes and benefits of resource allocation. This allows for a dynamic, responsive economic system that adapts to societal needs and priorities, prioritizing the collective advancement of civilization over individual wealth accumulation. It envisions a future where economic decisions are made not based on the superficial markers of success but on a deep understanding of potential contributions to societal progress, planetary health, and the well-being of the entire animal kingdom.

Cognitism represents a bold reimagining of economic principles, grounded in the belief that with the right insights and allocations, we can catalyze unprecedented levels of innovation, sustainability, and societal health. By aligning economic systems with the capabilities of ASI and the principles of AmI, GEA advocates for a world where resources are managed not merely for the accumulation of wealth but as catalysts for meaningful progress, enhancing the quality of life for all.

This grand vision propels ASI beyond traditional applications, situating it as a central figure in humanity's quest to design a living habitat that maximizes our potential against the universal pull of entropy. It's an ambitious blueprint for a future where Ambient Intelligence, powered by a thoughtfully implemented Artificial Superintelligence, reshapes the essence of our interaction with technology, environment, and, ultimately, with each other, all within the context of a new economic paradigm that truly serves the whole of humanity.

In envisioning a world where our environment—encompassing all knowledge and information—intuitively aligns with our needs, often anticipating them before we're even aware, we unlock unprecedented potential. This capability doesn't merely set the stage for humanity to ascend to the pinnacle of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs; it significantly enhances our prospects of navigating through the "Great Filter," whether that involves becoming an interplanetary species or achieving other monumental feats. In this future, Artificial Superintelligence (ASI) is not seen as a malevolent existential threat but rather as a vital ally, a "partner in crime," dedicated to propelling humanity forward.

A great vision is useless unless we can carve a path to that future. The Global Economic Alliance (GEA) operates as a living laboratory, a testament to years of dialogue and collaboration with global industry leaders, thinkers, and innovators. We've meticulously developed strategies designed to navigate us toward this promising horizon. Yet, the efficacy of a strategy hinges not just on its design but on its acceptance and adaptability.

In our commitment to turning vision into reality, we're taking our strategies, cutting-edge AI technology, and the pioneering economic theory of Cognitism out of the theoretical realm and into the real world. Through our living laboratory model, we're conducting real-life tests with communities of volunteers who are engaging with our innovations in their daily lives. This hands-on approach allows us to gather valuable empirical data and feedback directly from the people whose lives we aim to improve.

Transitioning to a future defined by Ambient Intelligence, decentralized Artificial Superintelligence, and a Cognitivist economic model is undeniably a monumental undertaking. It is a journey that will span generations, requiring persistence, resilience, and a collective commitment to reimagining the fabric of civilization. But the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Unless we embark on this path, committed to testing, learning, and adapting, the vision remains just that—a vision.
