New Computer Intelligence Could Solve World’s Problems

by George Sand on

A computer intelligence might be what we need to allow us to solve many of the big changes and problems within the world, such as climate change, and geopolitical conflict. in a recent article in the journal Science, the authors have now taken it upon themselves to give out a new vision of human computation which goes past traditional limits and also takes on some of the hard problems up until not out of reach.

The human mind can surpass the machines in many areas, such as simple pattern recognition and creative abstraction, but with these computers these cognitive patterns that people have can also be combined into multidimensional networks that can achieve what normal problem-solving cannot. Many of the human computation done today is based off of “micro-tasks” which are basically a bunch of people putting together results. For example, a whole bunch of volunteers have worked together to help build a map of the human retina and their neurons. It’s a touch challenge for many, especially in the realm of micro tasking.

For many problems out there, these new problems need more than just a multitude of static information that is connected, but instead you need something that can have a lot of changes and also unforeseen consequences. With these new human technologies, you can now get real-time solutions and crowd-based inputs that are happening now. These can be processed by a computer and sent to another person to either improve or analyze these different types of information. This allows more constructive and collaborative environments to be created to help with very challenging issues.

It’s currently being used to help tackle the major global conservation problems, and it allows people to see the potential of different working and living landscapes, and it allows the people to build on each other’s work, something that just simple crowdsourcing can’t get. This is a bottom-up way of looking at the different models, and it will allow these scalable changes to be put in on residential areas. It’s a way to allow a person to have an interactive analytic formation, and it will allow people to see where things go.


In another way, there is the stardust@home system, which is used to look for comet dust in one million images of aerogel, and it’s being adapted to look for stalled blood vessels which will then be found by the brain.

Through this, you’re giving people a simple task to do, and you will get real-time answers to things, and it will allow people to look for treatment and discovery in a fraction of the time. This will allow others to make changes almost immediately, taking the matters into their own hands. This can also help people find the solution to the problem and fix it immediately before things get any worse, and it will allow the community to not only connect to one another better, but allow everyone to come together as new discoveries are found each day.
