The title of the post is perhaps a little misleading in one way, I really don’t think Elon Musk coded his AI, but I do think both he and George Hotz set the features, relationship and prioritisation around the work for their AI’s and in Georges case also built it.
In thinking about the design an artificial intelligence too many people think about the inputs and not the logic first. The critical path in AI design is
what are the features of the AI that make it intelligent beyond a binary interaction and where are these interactions focused
Karl Smith, Founder at UbiNET
Geohot took the classic hacker approach in relation to immediacy in defining his features, taking the problem statement to ‘how to teach a car to drive’ instead of ‘how to understand the world in which a car moves’. These are fundamentally different approaches to the same question producing radically different solutions.
Tesla and Elon Musk
The Tesla solution is an ecosystem approach, from friend who have them the end to end experience of buying, getting and using a Tesla is orchestrated in much the same logic as the AI is designed. The Tesla AI maps the world and creates not just an in the present experience but a sense of knowing relative environment and future risk. This is much the same way as drivers make constant assessment of context based factors in their driving responses. However this way of building AI is extraordinary expensive not just in the initial build but also in the maintenance with constant updates.
The George Hotz solution is at the other end of the spectrum, its focusing on actually learning to drive and making the AI responsive to environmental change rather that mapping the world. In the film below George makes a statement “drive naturally like a human not some engineers idea of safety” at 4.50 onwards which I used in 2016 when I spoke at SXSW in Austin, USA about Cognition Clash in the Internet of Things, that is fundamental in building Artificial Intelligence that is adaptive rather than limited by human perceptions on how we think we do things.
As part of the platform development process for #SmartLiving UbiNET Inc. has launched two cryptocurrencies the ThingCoin and UbiNET Token. The two currencies work together within the platform to both secure identity and enable transactions.
UbiNET Token is the user access token for the UbiNET platform and ThingCoin is the transaction currency within UbiNET.
We have only issued a limited number of access tokens and transaction coins at this point to test the ecosystem and evolve a number of market propositions, say’s CEO and Chief Scientist Karl Smith
The UbiNET platform is reliant on several technologies including, micro sensors that use ambient power, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, 5G and artificial intelligence as defined in the Open Network Ecosystem Protocol patent and won’t launch until they are all aligned.
We have not ruled out an ICO to create the funding for a city state test of UbiNET but we want to be sure that investors gain a benefit before we move in that direction, we are reviewing several funding options at this stage but will continue to use our consultancy profits until real value can be offered to investors, say’s CEO Karl Smith
Last week Paradigm Interactions Inc. created a new subsidiary UbiNET Inc. set up as a stock corporation to support several funding rounds to deliver it’s global technology, data and service platform. This change in strategy is due to an over subscription for Series A investment which has created a focus on investors outcomes.
The formation of UbiNET Inc. will have no immediate impact on staffing and facilities but it is intended to focus R&D on the open network ecosystem protocol already filed at USPO.
The CEO of Paradigm Interactions Karl Smith described this change as “it’s fundamental that we have the business structures in place to enable investors to have clarity around their participation” further “having worked in global M&A and with VC funded start-up’s, I recognise that a good idea needs to be supported by and understanding of how to facilitate investment, engagement and exit”.
Karl Smith is an inventor of open network UbiNET which he has patented and a holistic transformation consultant more involved with how humans have to deal with technology than the technology itself. Karl Smith is also former Global Head of Mobility User Experience at Accenture and Partner (founder), Global Head of Digital Design at Wipro Digital, current Chairman of the Human Centered Design Society and has relaunched or launched Design as a USP in several global enterprises.
Karl has always been fascinated by how technology can augment the lives of humans, his desire was not to build things that humans already do but to find out how technology could evolve all human experience. He is still looking for the Gene Roddenberry future today where humanity pulls together and projects all of us the next stage of evolution. Transformation is at core of this evolution; he’s highly engaged in Ubiquity or the IoT as it is a gateway point.
After several years of research and development and patent work Paradigm Interactions is ready to start it’s next phase and seek Series A venture capital.
There are literally hundreds of articles out there describing a vast array of experiences, regardless we have something no one else has and we are now ready to start building IoT3 for Smart Living a true ubiquitous society based upon our Open Network Ecosystem Protocol.
In series A we are looking for $10,000,000 USD to set up the platform, series B $100,000,000 USD to set up a city and series C or IPO $2,000,000,000 to set up a major region for a market worth at least $80,000,000,000 a year.
If you are interested please contact us by email, we are in the early stages of seeking funding and are just seeing interested investors at this point. However we will continue bringing our patents into reality while seeking enterprise funding to deliver scale.
