INQUIRY, INFERENCE AND ACTION IN THIS BLOG WILL BE PRIMARILY FOCUSED ON COLLECTIVELY
ELUCIDATING THE "TRUTH WITH
RELEVANCE AND VALUE (GOODNESS)" OF THE FREETHINKING, OF ANYONE,
WITHOUT FEAR OF
FOOLISHNESS OR FEAR OF THE
REACTION OF AUTHORITY, AS WE
EXPERIENCE THE REALM OF THE
GREAT AND UNIVERSAL UNCERTAINTY FACING HUMANITY.

PROJECT AUTOGNOME is long-term project directed at
developing a standard theory of MIND and implementing it in stages as evolving Synthetic
Intelligence enroute to a SyntheticMind.
The AutoGnome at the cognitive
level of software engineering is essentially a Knowledge Developer.
Knowledge is that attribute of Mind
focused (albeit not exclusively) on Mind’s cognitive/semantic (meaning) functionality.
Knowledge grows from Intelligence (the syntactic form) which is born of
Data/Information and matures as Wisdom (Knowledge focused through Value in the
choice of Acts).
In the context of a
description of Mind, the following distinctions regarding Knowledge can be
·Data: bits of arithmetical/linguistic
records such as lists (e.g. phone lists) or records in a database or
·Information: data organized so that it can be communicated
processes focused on syntactic patterning
·Knowledge: Cognitive processes
focused on semantic patterning
·Wisdom: Valuational Decision
processes focused on pragmatic patterning, i.e. Action Selection
The Future of the Web
In terms of the foregoing, the following
definitions might be projected to emerge in characterizing the Web:
·Web 1.0 – Syntactic Web (Perceptual;
·Web 2.0 – Syntactic-based Social Web
·Web 3.0 – Semantic Web (Cognitive; Knowledge)
·Web 4.0 – Semantic-based Social Web
·Web 5.0 – Pragmatic Web (Valuational; Wisdom)
·Web 6.0 – Pragmatic-based Social Web
·Web 7.0– AutoGnomic (Semiotic) Web; includes
its Social Web and anticipates a new computing
paradigm realizing Boundary Logic.
status in this development (Synthetic Mind: IntelligenceàKnowledgeàWisdom)
is hovering between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 with forays into Web 3.0 and 4.0. Hence, Synthesizing Knowledge is the present
goal with Wisdom (Knowledge processed through a Value filter) still a human
interpretive extension. Nevertheless, the mission of AutoGnomics, in contrast
to approaches to bring AI into the Web, is to reform the Web as an AutoGnome;
hence, Web 7.0 is a present goal of a Pragmatic Action Methodological approach
to both a Synthetic Mind and Virtuality, the
The function of a digital computer search
engine is to locate and retrieve stored DATA (see above definition). Obviously,
a developing AutoGnome can enhance the process of such search, e.g. by
automating the creation of ontologies in current semantic-based search.
