Increasingly, I think the true problem of AGI is not really artificial intelligence, but artificial wisdom, insofar as artificial stupidity is the opposite of the latter, rather than the former. Yet 'wisdom' should not connote 'folksy', but something quite mathematically precise.
I think this is really what's going on in @NegarestaniReza's identification of the programme of AGI with philosophy as such in Intelligence & Spirit, beyond my own more modest claim that AGI is transcendental psychology. If you love wisdom, you should build it.
It's also the real content of the distinction between sentience and sapience that we both take from Sellars and Brandom, but which has deeper roots in the tradition of German Idealism. The defining characteristic of Homo sapiens is not brute intelligence, but strategic wisdom.

@paulkreinerhere @schulzb589 I accept that I haven't given a proof of this impossibility, but I believe the concerns I've laid out could probably be formalised in a way that would lead to one, though it'd involve something like a combinatoric diagonalisation similar to Russell's paradox.
@paulkreinerhere @schulzb589 To state my issue in a more philosophical way, I think the desire to combinatorially totalise mathematical syntax is an effect of something like a transcendental illusion, what I sometimes call the Mythos of Logos.
@paulkreinerhere @schulzb589 It's the Leibnizian desire to obviate creative dialogical interaction (dialectical reason) by providing a deductive system (monological reason) that would allow us to simply 'shut up and calculate'; the desire to obviate the pragmatic autonomy of discovery by automating it.

Software architecture is in crisis, and the way to fix it is a hefty dose of anarchy.
Some lay the blame for this on @boicy with the whole microservices thing.

(Admittedly, @nicolefv, @jezhumble and @realgenekim didn’t help when they statistically proved that he might have been onto something with all that de-coupling and team-alignment…)
However I don’t blame him at all.

I think he saved us; bringing us back to the path of value-delivery and independent services, but now with added independent teams.

I had an interesting question for the talk I did today for @agilesgorg about my view on developer productivity like BlueOptima. I hadn't heard of it before but doing some reading now and 😱. Here's a quick thread with some initial thoughts
First there's a reminder about… (When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure), or the #TOC version of this, "Tell me how you measure me and I'll tell you how I behave"
Leaders and managers need to think really, really, really hard about the metrics they use and the obtuse ways that people will game them. Also... engineers have an astounding talent for gaming the system, so beware... but back to the tool

One day a man stood on the roof of his house during a flood, and prayed, ‘God, please save me.’


#TakeResponsibility #StayHomeStaySafe #PhysicalDistancing #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #HRwithEM
Soon a rowboat came by and offered to take him to safety. But he said, ‘No, God will take care of me.’


#TakeResponsibility #StayHomeStaySafe #PhysicalDistancing #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #HRwithEM
The waters kept coming up until they were almost at his waist. Suddenly a helicopter appeared overhead and a rope ladder was lowered down. ‘Oh no, God will take care of me.’

Early this week, @Tenilussh asked me to share my motivation for switching from #IT to #HR, and to advise anyone who is scared to make such a huge career switch.


#jobseekers #careeradvice #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #HRwithEM
This was how I responded:

@Tenilussh, I will be as brief as possible, because it's a long story available in #MyHRStoryBook as compiled by @LaraImpacts:

1. I am an accidental HR professional. It was not planned. Reflecting, I can see that I am HR, and HR is me.

"Small minorities often achieve disproportionate results." ~ @peterthiel @bgmasters

Leaders are readers!

When we see this quote, what comes to mind? Books?

Effective, great and intuitive leaders read other things in addition to books, which sets them apart from others.

@JohnCMaxwell #leadership #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #MADIsTheNewCurrency #HRwithEM
1. Leaders are readers of their situation.

In all kinds of circumstances, leaders pick up on details that might elude others.

@JohnCMaxwell #leadership #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #MADIsTheNewCurrency #HRwithEM
They don't need to sift through stats, read reports, or examine a balance sheet. They know the situation before they have all the facts.

By making four simple assumptions in our lives we can immediately begin leading a more balanced, integrated, powerful life. @StephenRCovey #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #MADIsTheNewCurrency #HRwithEM
They are simple—one for each part of our nature—but I promise you that if you do them consistently, you will find a new wellspring of strength and integrity to draw on when you need it most. @StephenRCovey #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #MADIsTheNewCurrency #HRwithEM
1. For the body—assume you’ve had a heart attack; now live accordingly. @StephenRCovey #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #MADIsTheNewCurrency #HRwithEM

What? You mean... you mean... that software lives on beyond the deployment? Beyond the first few minutes/hours/days? Until you retire it? #sarcasm

I think we need a new phrase:

"Your code is for life, not just for deployment"

cf "A dog is for life, not just for Christmas"
I love @mipsytipsy talking truth. She's one of the few who simply nails it almost every time.

Too many devs fail to think about the effects of their code over any term other than the deployment and a bit after.

Maybe because their salary doesn't depend on quality over time?
If devs were paid a bonus based upon the amount of technical debt they created - the less they created, the better their bonus - would the world be a better place?

Because maybe that should be a thing we consider.

Happy first birthday @jenkinsxio, the CI/CD solution for cloud native!

It's been just over a year since the first git commits to the jx repo.
In just 12 month, Jenkins X progress has been breathtaking, so here's a tweet for each month celebrating just that (with cake! 🎂)
🍰 Firstly, Jenkins X is the brainchild of @jstrachan of @CloudBees, who also built popular OSS such as @ApacheGroovy, Camel, etc, with enduring OSS communities around them. With that experience, James simply gets developers and what they want, need and care about.
Developers WANT to ship code fast.

Developers NEED to use best practices so everything doesn't fall over in a big fat heap.

Developers CARE ABOUT what they are building; the code, the quirks: (it makes one-size-fits-all tools hard to build).

🍰@jenkinsxio gets all of this.
