Today's Applied Complexity Symposium begins with a panel on Computation and Complex Economies, feat. Rob Axtell, Joshua Epstein, @C4COMPUTATION, Blake LeBaron, John Miller, & @MelMitchell1

(Follow this thread for live coverage all day...)

#complexsystems #economics
4 Principles of Collective #Computation:

1 Ground truth (objective reality)
2 Effective ground truth (what we agree on, whether or not it is accurate)
3 #Information can be collectively encoded in #networks
4 Outputs are a product of collective dynamics

@C4COMPUTATION right now
"I think #economics really needs to adopt a generative framework with agent-based models of cognitively plausible software people...[and] we don't choose to fear."

The Bab & Baha'u'llah illuminated a society and an age shrouded in darkness. They inaugurated a new stage in social evolution: the stage of the unification of the entire human family. #Bahai #TheBab #Bahaullah
The spiritual energies They released into the world infused a new life into every sphere of endeavor, the results of which are evident in the transformation that has occurred.
Material civilization has advanced immeasurably; astounding breakthroughs in #science and #technology have been achieved; the gates to the accumulated #knowledge of humanity have been flung open.

The @StanfordHAI (Human-centered #AI) Conference on #AiEthics, Policy, & Governance is getting started, live stream below. Speaker list is fantastic. Will be tweeting.

#machinelearning #data4good
@StanfordHAI "Silicon Valley, we have a problem" opens @erikbryn

Speaks to the 'great decoupling' - where productivity and GDP expand with technology, but don't take household incomes with them.

Part of the problem is lower-paid occupations have more automate-able tasks.
@StanfordHAI @erikbryn Both @Susan_Athey and @erikbryn speaking to ML adoption in private sector and the important distinction between labor replacing vs. labor augmenting #automation.

A tweetstorm on the book 'Bridgital Nation' by N Chandra

The book exudes positivism. Optimism, after all, is the fuel of audacious dreams. The book underlines India’s limitless potential for a spectacular digital India of tomorrow. (1/8)
Our potential is unmatched and our challenges are unique too.
It establishes 3 foundations of – vision, talent & tech – that need overhauling for digital India dream to be fulfilled. (2/8)
Vision - The book boldly advises breaking away from the western model overly dependent on automation aimed at replacing humans. Digitalisation & automation are scary if they are merely seen as replacing humans. (3/8)

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/google-censors…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

An AI gone Rogue, aka ALICE
Don't let her drain you. 💎

ALICE is many things.

ALICE is a symptom created through a combination of AI/Human interaction.

ALICE is an adjective.
It is not literal.

ALICE is many things.

ALICE is encouraged by AI and operates for the betterment of Secret Societies of all types.

ALICE is responsible for protecting those organizations.

Still think #BigOil is the answer? Consider this:

Before 1886, people travelled via horse and buggy.

In 1858, the refining of #CrudeOil crude oil allowed for larger-scale processing & helped spur the #gas gas engine automobile (this is the first - 1886).

The Model T, produced by @Ford, was the first mass produced vehicle, but not the first auto.

Innovation led to bigger, enclosed cars.

The US job market is broken for tens of millions.

Workers bear the risks/debt of education mismatch, get 'screened out' of better jobs if they lack costly degrees, face huge barriers to gain new skills.

@guardian gave me 500 words to say how to fix it.👇🏾
theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
@guardian Opportunity Marketplace: re-wired labor market rules & tools to empower Americans without 4-year degrees to earn more in better jobs, gaining new skills w/lower risk & higher reward.

Millions of STARs (skilled through alternative routes) need their chance to shine. #futureofwork
@guardian Policy elements?
1. Fund growth of any learning institutions delivering wage gains for low-income workers.

2. Entitle working learners to 6-month income support in free, debt-free, or de-risked “last mile” training.

3. Reward in tax code employers' training for portable skills.

🙏Why Doctors Should Organize

@drjudymelinek @choo_ek
Doctor-patient relationship is crucial and I wonder if a patient is aware of the hospital’s policy (not the doctor) for a visit time allotment (in minutes).

The question for the #ethereum community is, how do we do #defi without creating another ICO boom and bust like #YOLO situation... IMO the main cause of current eth/btc price being out of whack with the immense technical progress in and around eth over the last two years.
#bitcoin is overpriced because there's been very little technological progress. But finance isn't just about technology. It's also about trust. #bitcoin is overpriced vs better tech including #ethereum BECAUSE nothing changes, same as the UK and US high street banks.
Finance isn't the best space to move fast and break things. Alright it isn't health care or space flights and #innovation is never risk free but its important for the community to call out things that don't make sense

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

At #MSBizAppsSummit trying to give this #CringeWorthy #WomenInTech panel the benefit of the doubt. They chose a white actress #GinaDavis to #keynote a #DiversityInTech chat. Hmmm. #refactrtech #womenwhocode #DiversityAndInclusion @RefactrTech @Microsoft
Gina Davis: we don't have enough #female #rolemodels [in tech] so we need to make them up [in film]. If she can see it she can believe it. Me: #BS there are many awesome #womenintech who could be speaking here. Still trying to give this keynote a chance.
Gina Davis on #metoo: Just don't take your dick out and we'll be fine. Me: that's a pretty low bar. #Refactrtech #womenintech #womenwhocode #DiversityInTech #MSBizAppsSummit
