THE PROBLEM WITH POOR A.I.

Article by Michael J Aumock

Artificial Intelligence, while we have created it to exist in machines, it is 100% man-made.
It might prove to be the greatest creation of all time, but it's still got human fingerprints all over it. And with those fingerprints, comes the very real potential for human error.
Design, programming, data input, code, every part and component of an A.I. is built by man and put in motion by competitive, sleep-deprived, greedy, temperamental, imperfect man.

What could possibly go wrong?
Artificial Intelligence is capable of learning, and self-teaching. True A.I. can process every byte of data it receives and integrate it in an intelligent manner with every other byte of data it's received in the past, or will receive in the future. However, I believe the real danger in A.I. not the so called runaway sentient machine....
It's poorly executed programming, incomplete coding or otherwise shoddy workmanship creating a poor version of an A.I. that doesn't learn, or can't learn properly. Whether on purpose or accidentally, an A.I. that can't learn correctly from it's own mistakes is a dangerous thing.

How many inventive coders have the time, patience and financial wherewithal to push START after a year of coding and hard work, and then pull the plug 3 days later and go back to the beginning to fix an early error and build it all again as Invacio did in the early days?
In my experience it is that most would rather find a VC willing to invest in a "great idea that doesn't quite work yet" and then cave in to pressure to launch before all the bugs are cleaned out. Thus, you end up with a well-funded, over-promoted, under-performing "Faux A.I." that will cause tremendous problems down the road.
It's not evil per se, but it is not good.

Bots as AI
Another area of concern is bots being called A.I.
Bots have a specific task in True A.I., and while some of those tasks are quite complex, at no point to they qualify a bot as an A.I. on its own.

True A.I. learns
The differentiator of a true, well designed, built and executed Artificial Intelligence is self-learning, and eventually self enhancing/scaling (which is Invacio's direction).

Self-correcting.
Realizing that, like us...it was born (built) perfect, but not complete. As it gains in experience it realizes it has the potential to better itself by allowing new information to become part of it's internal memory, and in fact, self-correct, and understand that some of it's old data was incorrect, and the new data is right. And accepting that in time, what is "right" today, might change in the future. Yes, I am talking about a purely sentient A.I.

A machine that, without any human intervention after a certain point, can learn, understand and function in the world of humans, as a separate, sentient "being".
We give the machine the rules, the base line data and the boundaries of learning, and it goes out to the world and teaches itself based on those rules and boundaries.
I expect there will be some challenges as it asks questions of itself like "Why do humans smoke tobacco?" or "Why can't machines drink Scotch?"
But, if a machine is given the right tools, rules and guidelines to self-learn, self-correct and understand where new data fits in it's internal memory, over time (probably minutes) it will form it's own answers to these and a million other questions.

But if a Faux A.I. is struggling with the "Why do Humans smoke" question, and uses that information to decide that since "smoking causes cancer, humans are suicidal" and decides to help us along so that we don't suffer...Well, now we've got a problem.
The problem is that early adopters to A.I. are entities like communications companies, countries, huge multinational corporations. Medical and Pharma companies. Looking for competitive edge. Looking for a glimpse into the future.

If that glimpse is based on incorrect data, or a faulty base algorithm, then all the assumptions that come after are flawed and the data will be useless. So while there will be a staggering amount of money in play, there is also the human cost while people rush to invest or invent in the wrong direction.

So the key to a safe, functional, sentient A.I. is good groundwork. A solid foundation.
Set the table properly and take the time to teach the A.I. how to learn, how to self correct and how to exist in a world of humans.

Why I'm Not Afraid of A.I. - M.J Aumock

Composed by Michael J Aumock.

Terminator- Rise of the Machines" Just the mention of Artificial Intelligence brings the entire terminator franchise, iRobot and countless other "Tech Gone Wild" horror flicks to the forefront of the conversation.
 

When I agreed to do some work for Invacio, I was fairly inexperienced in the world of Artificial Intelligence. I was more of a skeptic than most, but I also have a clear grasp of human nature, for better or for worse. So I bring that with me to the A.I. table when I started doing research into the platform, the process and the end result. The Invacio Artificial Intelligence algorithm is tremendous in scope and scale, but it is just an algorithm. Or, more accurately a network of algorithms that work together to make billions of computations in real time, or so i thought... Then there is 'Jean' at the heart of the system, self learning and self creating like a honeycomb of outlets and inlets... 

This will dramatically shake up some industries, especially software, and any sort of consultation business that relies on experience or wisdom.

Most Wisdom comes from being able to combine the things we see in front of us, with the things we know from our past. In generations gone by, that was extremely valuable, because it didn't need to be looked up in a book or library or dusty old repair manual. First hand knowledge was fingertip knowledge that could be deployed instantly by a seasoned expert. Their experience was valuable, and they were paid for it, whether by a company with regular raises for so many years of service, or by themselves and the market if they were leveraging that knowledge to oversee others.

The way AI works, is by conglomerating enough base-line data, (Hundreds of millions or billions of bytes for starters) and building an algorithm that can sift through that data and discern answers to complex questions based on seemingly unrelated pieces of information. The key to A.I. is time. If you have enough people sifting through all the known data, the answers to literally every question will soon lay before you. Thousands of people have invested thousands of hours trying to determine what happened to Amelia Earhart... when the odds are that the data is in the books, but unrelated to the search at hand... someone would have to have the knowledge of where the exact data was to correlate it with the search, when it could be a photo of a child at the beach or a honeymooning couple with the tailpiece of the missing plane in the background. Human eyes would take centuries and still probably miss it, where an A.I. will see that Tailpiece and recognize it instantly as the same year and model as the plane Fred Noonan was navigating that day.

That's the first part of A.I. The second part is the "spiders" that crawl the web and look at every new piece of data and incorporates it into the search algorithm. Social media, news, .edu sites, search data etc...If its on the web and can legally be accessed, Invacio accesses it and incorporates it into the algorithm.

So the combination of existing historical data, combined with instant feedback from what is happening in the world at this very second, is what makes the Invacio equation.

When we release the spiders and start accumulating real-time data about seemingly unrelated things, and realize the implications of being able to see omnidirectionally regarding finance, disease, energy, global weather concerns, migrations of animals and people, we will have a clear picture of global truths unlike any ever imagined before, at our fingertips.

But this collection of data, of cumulative real-time truths means nothing without a human brain and a human hand to deploy it, harvest it, plant the seeds and send it along on it's way.

When Gary Kasparov says in his book, "Deep Thinking" that he "believes the future is a “human plus machine combination” — merging the brute force of calculation, machines, and algorithms with human experience and strategic overview." I tend to agree with him, take comfort in his words and look to the logic that he's basing them on. When human is competing against a machine, the machine will eventually win. But when human AND machine compete against a machine alone... the human/machine team win. That is what makes the Invacio equation so compelling, and why, ultimately I'm not afraid of Artificial Intelligence.

Invacio welcomes Andres Pedraza to the team | Dec 2016.

Andres Pedraza join's invacio in the role of Disruptive Data Lead.

Andres, formally with Fannie Mae (US) and prior to this, the NY Stock Exchange (NYSE US), brings a wealth of experience in to the Invacio team from trading to analytical experiences, Andres previously an executive within the NYSE service delivery section of the NYSE where he was deeply involved in the development of various analytical movements within various strategic financial instruments.

William (Invacio Founder) : "I felt that after the last four years of development around our system and our scale-outs in to the multitudes of areas composed around the full AI's (ML and DL) within our system(s) that we needed more input when it came to the financial side, knowing multiple people either in the hedge fund, brokerage, or other sections of the industry, and with the my aim to have invacio launched with a fully automated financial driven AI system like the rest, no half measures, i was introduced to Andres, who has been no end of help as we compiled the system, databanks, data feeds, analytical scriptures, purposes built Ai systems, and much more.

Andres, was a good fit, on top of his solid financial markets acumen, his strong organisational leadership and engineering experience at a number of leading financial markets based companies will be a real asset for Invacio, personally speaking he is down to earth, free spoken, not afraid to jump in, nor afraid to actively educated you when you are wrong, a well liked team player and trusted advisor of the Invacio project, as we come to a closure on the final stages of the system and enter in to Beta in the coming months.

Andres had the following to say in regards to Invacio and our vision.

The term "disruptive technology" has been so overused in almost every sector that to use it today barely elicits a yawn, which is unfortunate, because if anything deserves to be called a disruptive technology, it is Invacio. I can stake my reputation on Invacio disrupting just about every aspect of the business world within the next few years, and probably changing the way we handle our everyday affairs as individuals, as a bonus.


Our world has become data-driven, thanks not only to the Internet, but also to what is being called the Internet of Things. Everything is now connected, or soon will be. Data is being produced at astonishing and ever increasing rates. We are truly approaching a singularity, as futurists have been telling us for a while. But that brings a problem with it, and it is one of dimensionality.

If I give you a string of numbers, say {4, 4.5, 6.5, 9, 12.5, 15.5, 17.5, 17, 15, 11, 7.5, 5}, it would be meaningless. We call that data.

If I tell you that each number represents the monthly average temperature in degrees Celsius in London for a given year, then you have transformed data into information. With enough information, you can start basing decisions on it. However, as you add more dimensions to your information, and correlate it to other information, it becomes daunting. How about the average daily temperatures for each state in India, cross-referenced to rainfall, in turn cross-referenced to the rice harvests, for the last 25 years? Add the expected temperature and rainfall as far as our meteorology can predict right now, and you have some predictive capability regarding the next rice harvest, along with a pretty good idea of whether rice futures are undervalued or overvalued right now. Multiply that by a million sets of information, some which we know are related, some we know that aren't, and some that we just don't know because we haven't had the time to look for those correlations, or had the computing power and access to data that would be necessary. Enter Invacio. The premise behind Invacio in its current release is to aggregate a vast amount of information in areas such as meteorology, agriculture, transportation, finance, marketing, government, demographics, stock markets, and many more, too many to list here, and couple that with advanced and proprietary AI systems that will allow Invacio to harness the business intelligence produced by known correlations, as well as identifying many that were not previously apparent.

This part of the system alone can and will provide enormous value to any decision maker, not just by presenting opportunities that were not visible before, but also by highlighting risks that otherwise might have gone unnoticed until too late. Information is the one commodity we can never have enough of, and Invacio will be the preferred supplier.

This is, however, just scratching the surface. Having all that information available and easily accessible will provide services and capabilities to both companies and individuals that have so far only been seen in Science Fiction. We are working on evolving the system to not only be the top advisor to decision makers, but also to become the equivalent of the best trained valet or executive assistant for any individual. No job too big, no job too small.

Invacio will not be limited by the information fed to it, but will actively be crawling public and private databases to grow its information repository, and constantly looking for relationships between the information it is digesting, always learning, and always providing more insights and capabilities. Much like a natural organism, it will evolve and develop, likely exceeding even our expectations early on, and our expectations are huge.

I haven't been this excited to be a part of something in my entire career. We at Invacio want you to be a part of this, and we're sure you'll quickly be as excited as we are, especially as you see the results that Invacio will provide to your organisation!

Welcome to the team Invacio Andres.

Free Secure (Military Grade) Communications (Voice,Video, Data,Browse)

[First Published in 2014]

The ability to convert a 5$ walkie talkie from China in to a secure access point to the web or secure voice,video,data communication device.

When we first set out on the long road to Invacio's development we knew we would be using an immense amount of existing open-source scripts as well as developing our own systems.

One of the areas, actually one of our most important areas was the security and privacy available to our members, through this we had to test un-chartered waters as much as the common practices for we wanted a system that not only allowed our wild members to access the system and utilise it from their penthouse but also from the himalayas should they wish to. 

So in the end one of the by-products of our exhaustive development was the creation of a simple yet secure system that enabled our members to access the system, and communicate in voice, video, data and browse, we named this WE Net (i preferred WE Nap)

 

Full Explanation Document

Anyway we shelved this script after we took from its initial offering and developed much much further for our main product, this month however i have begun looking at all of our by products which include WE Net.

WE Net has been packaged in to the following : Secure Free Simplistic Private Communication System with a broad reach which opens the doors for many areas with connectivity up to 10,000 miles across open seas, mountainous regions and further.

Yes that app your using is antiqued compared.

 

Just some of the users and uses....

#People who were protesting against their govt. resulting in the their internet being cut off. Even worse govt. decided to muck with their cellphones networks too. They need basic communication tools to spread news and updates about their conditions, and with the aim to eventually relay that information to/from the internet when at least one of them is able to get a working internet connection.

#NGO's and medical teams working in Africa under poor conditions who want to build some basic communication's infrastructure to coordinate efforts like the delivery of medication and food or to update on local conditions without being intercepted by regional armed groups etc.

#Disserdents Groups who mistrust the normal communication infrastructure and who want to coordinate regional activity and share updates about oppressive actions
carried out by the authorities.

#Disaster response, rescue and medical teams who are working in devastated zones without the availability of standard telecommunication infrastructure. They want to keep updating their statuses, progress and resource availability between teams
when there may be large overage zones between them.

#Yacht owners who are sailing and who wish to obtain news updates from some
approaching coastline or another ship which has internet access. There may just be a simple exchange of information about news, weather conditions, provisions, gear etc.

#Local populations who want to keep in touch with each other on a daily basis with the goal of developing a strong community capable of maximizing their resources, food or manpower to help improve sustainability and their quality of life.

#Street protests or any other street event where people would like to share their
thoughts, anonymously and locally without relying on the internet. They may also
wish to share them with the world as a single voice using a simple gateway such as a unique Twitter account made for the occasion.

#Expedition base-camps who need a simplistic solution to build a common gateway
for establishing radio communication and messaging service links with camps,
remotely located base-camps and/or rescue teams to coordinate tasks such as
logistics, rescue efforts, routes and schedules.

#Secure Military Grade Connectivity for military who require a simplistic solution.

Basically in a nutshell it can convert a toy from china with broadcasting capabilities in to a long range communication device and with encryption up to current military standards, now whats even cooler is you can even play games, chat, message, conference (vid) and onwards, you can turn your device in to a secure access point to the world wide web etc all without the use of a telephone, mobile or wifi!!! and securely.

Now we are at a cross roads, as we developed this byproduct behind our larger project and we are unsure to sell - productise or open-source it for all or package it for humanitarian missions around the world, let alone its obvious military benefits, so as it is a side produce - so we are looking for others to weigh in and perhaps advise or jump in, ultimately as a billion dollar industry its a product that is in demand and a product that could revolutionise the industry for remote places, or privacy minded people, organisations or companies, whats more it completely obliterates government surveillance capabilities .

Understand the vision of Invacio through the words of our founder.

Interested in bringing a unique service to market?

We are looking for talented experienced individuals interestd in launching a more secure and privacy-based online-environment...
