Transformation of Collective Intelligences: Perspective of by Jean-Max Noyer

By Jean-Max Noyer

There's a nice transformation of the construction of data and intelligibility. The "digital fold of the area" (with the convergence of NBIC) impacts the collective assemblages of “thought”, of research.  The goals of those assemblages also are arguable matters. From a common perspective, those debates quandary “performative technological know-how and performative society”. yet one emerges and strengthens that has a number of names: transhumanism, post-humanism, speculative post-humanism. apparently as an outstanding narration, a wide tale in regards to the way forward for our lifestyles, dealing with our access into the Anthropocene. it's also provided as a concrete utopia with an anthropological and technical switch. during this e-book, we proposed to teach how collective intelligences stand in the midst of the coupling of ontological horizons and of the “process of bio-technical maturation”.

Energy-Level Control at Hybrid Inorganic/Organic Semiconductor Interfaces

This paintings investigates the energy-level alignment of hybrid inorganic/organic structures (HIOS) comprising ZnO because the significant inorganic semiconductor. as well as delivering crucial insights, the thesis demonstrates HIOS energy-level alignment tuning inside of an remarkable power variety. (Sub)monolayers of natural molecular donors and acceptors are brought as an interlayer to switch HIOS interface-energy degrees.

Alaska’s Permanent Fund Dividend: Examining Its Suitability as a Model

Participants speak about the Alaska everlasting Fund (APF) and everlasting Fund Dividend (PFD) as a version either for source coverage and for social coverage. This publication explores no matter if different states, countries, or areas would get advantages from an Alaskan-style dividend. The e-book additionally seems to be at attainable ways in which the version could be altered and superior.

It forces us to view data mathematically first and establish a context for it later. […] There is now a better way. Petabytes allow us to say: ‘Correlation is enough’. We can stop looking for models. 34 See note 19. Elements of the General Configuration and Adaptive Landscape of Collective Intelligences 35 We can analyze the data without hypotheses about what it might show. We can throw the numbers into the biggest computing clusters the world has ever seen and let statistical algorithms find patterns where science cannot” [AND 08].

These shifts result in the semiotic and software issue which is of major politico-strategic importance. Those who can extract and exploit the graphs that emerge from the (individual or collective) digital traces gain a superior standpoint within the political, libidinal and strategical economies. He who is able to exploit the variations and differences in speed of the writing systems, he who masters the variations of meme34 combinations, an essential part of the social-political becomings of the modes of intelligibility and the processes of subjectivation, this one gains a dominant position in the production, circulation and consumption of knowledge.

That everything becomes algorithmic can be seen as a social-cognitive and political-anthropological issue. In that perspective and in Deleuzian terms, it opens to novel mechanisms that may striate the metastability of collectives, thus threatening to let elaborate control societies emerge that would make democratic regimes mutate “out of themselves”. It also opens itself to mechanisms that may produce new smooth spaces in which to revive the cognitive conditions essential to hybrid intelligences.
