Project Name: KI-LIFE²
KI-LIFE² - the Knowing Intelligence - Learning Interactively For Everybody and Enlivenment.
Creation of a Learning Assistant using AI / ML / DS for enhancing personal and collective cognition toward future² “Knowing societies” and enlivening the planet.
Our societies are presently facing a severe systemic metacrisis (climate change, energy peak, ecological and biological collapse, meaning crisis and attentional crash) jeopardizing the survival of all living beings on our planet, including ourselves (Schmachtenberger, Vervaeke).
The only way to move forward with enough speed and to exceed these perils is to mobilize the great power of cognitives technologies, like AI / ML / DS, and Web3 organizational techs to augment (Engelbart) and extend personal and collective intelligence. The aim being to help catalyzing an epistemic rational shift toward a more worthy and commons (Bauwens) future² for all livings, toward a new stage of our human civilization by enhancing our NGI (Natural General Intelligence).
I have a biology and neurosciences background and a passion for cognitive sciences (CS) & technologies for thirty years, and more particularly inside the encompassing and embodied modeling framework of CS called the enactive paradigm (Varela, Thompson & Rosch). Enaction put the emphasis on lived experience and also on body and participatory sense-making (Di Paolo & De Jaehger) in the cognitive process. I also have a deep personal experience in using scholar knowledge and cognitives technologies to design and transform my own thinking and sense-making, leading me to a meta-paradigmatic and creative conception called “Scybernethic(s)” (https://scybernethics.org). This is how I have worked on myself to enact this know-how (more than a know-what):
*** in the part 3 about computer simulations of a-cognition / AI, “PDP” stand for Parallel and Distributed Processing, the original conception behind the Back-Propagation algorithm (Rumelhart), later called “Deep Learning” by Google marketing. I have also studied and designed Swarms, networks of Finite-States Automata (Wolfram) and Multi-Agents Systems.
This project is a first PoC milestone. The objectives are:
- To create a bootstrapping incentive toward building a core multidisciplinary team sharing our values and engaged toward our mission.
- Generating a project dedicated DAO
- Connecting with friendly neighbors DAOs to develop the ecosystem.
- Learning by iteratively doing in developing a rapid prototype of a playful learning assistant using generative AI and DS while experimenting on ourselves the enhanced personal and team building processes in a phenomenological “Deep Learning” way.
- Enacting a sharable and practical methodology for helping the community with similar projects.
- Preparing the foundations for the second MVP milestone.
- Engaging more deeply with the scientific cognitive and enactive community and the DeSci trend.
- A live public demo of the working prototype.
- A paper summarizing the methodology used with quick theoretical references, enacted results and findings, and projected future developments.
- An AMA about the project.
KI-LIFE² is looking for it’s seed team members***, if possible Web3 knowledgeable, and future members of its DAO:
- An engineer mastering ML/DS/AI techs.
- A UX / UI designer / developer.
- A community manager.
- A game designer / storytelling specialist.
- Everybody interested in the project and its values are welcome.
*** These roles won’t be remunerated in this first milestone, but reserved NFT on the allowlist premint could be attributed for example.
