Subject: Submitted - cc. FINAL DRAFT of proposal RE: Technethics, AI - Notes on “community consultancy” - Critical Governance Strategy Proposal - AI technethics - global maternal health and AI
The George Kasey Foundation Inc.
The Foundation for the Advancement of Applied TechnEthics (Media Ethics) and Human Ecological Recovery (F.A.T.H.E.R.)
To Whom It May Concern:
As per our previous email DRAFT:
Rather than “AI Wars”, we propose a global governance policy of Universal AI Neutrality, especially on human rights, “gender equality” and human ecological recovery issues, that are mutual concerns i.e.: data accessibility for the restoration of indigenous ancestral teachings for maternal health and population balance that advanced AI deployment may facilitate.
Thank You all …here is a cc. of our proposal Technethics & AI successfully submitted today:
1. Please describe a gap and/or opportunity in research data management that can be filled with the development or enhancement of a software tool or platform.
This value must be between 1 and 400 words.
We propose an Artificial intelligence R&D that is pre-programmed for Technethics (techno ethics) to foster collective intelligence and Governance (Collective Self-Management & Self-Governance).
Information architecture with prioritization based on ethical praxis will do much to eliminate commercial dross from scientific gold.
To date AI systems/methods/algorithms have been utilized, for research academic and corporate, in harmony with the rhetoric of business "sustainability" agendas thus generating a mercenary "scientism" of biased algorithms that often place bottom line concerns in "top rank" over human necessity.
One of the major concerns of governments of developing and developed countries is to have a check on their population increase. Research indicates that it is possible to access active substances for fertility regulation by harvesting existing agents from plants which are economical, eco-friendly and temporarily interfere with fertility. Interactive AI bots could inform women about these plants and gather research in a user friendly format via mobile app technology. The rapid, global spread of smart phones, even in the poorest countries on earth, indicates the promise that education via mobile app technology could make information available to those who urgently need it by optimizing user friendly AI .
Very little information is presently available easily in an accessible format for youth. Using app technology will increase understanding of information and reach more people. Other, more difficult methods include reading studies, vetting website sources and reading about plants to determine availability.
Marginalized populations usually can't access doctors, oral contraceptives or a socially acceptable form of birth control. Social stigma associated with sexual violence may prevent women from attending if a hospital or doctor were available. Accessing information about common contraceptive herbs is possible for those with little or no income. Countries with cell phones and internet access, enable women to privately gain information to reduce unwanted pregnancy.
By 2025, about three quarter of the 3.2 billion increase in the world’s population is expected to take place; the global increase is expected to double by 2050 to approximately 7.8–12 billion. China and India are the two most populous countries, with around half of the world’s population living there. Side effects of commonly used oral contraceptives are now linked to conditions such as myocardial infarction and breast cancer in females.
2. Please explain how addressing the gap or opportunity could support the FAIR Principles and contribute to a richer and more sustainable research data management landscape. At least one FAIR Principle should be referenced, but more are encouraged.
This value must be between 1 and 300 words
Information architecture with prioritization based on ethical praxis will do much to eliminate commercial dross from scientific gold.
Information architecture based on reciprocal AI with prioritization based on ethical praxis will do much to eliminate commercial dross from scientific gold.
To date AI systems/methods/algorithms have been utilized, for research, academic and corporate, in harmony with the rhetoric of business "sustainability" agendas thus by default generating a mercenary "scientism" that often places bottom line concerns in "top rank" over human necessity.
All of the FAIR principles "Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability" are impacted when mercenary interests predominate and bias algorithms that manipulate public information media.
i.e.: case in point formerly Canada Foreign Affairs strategic results based management relied on the efficiency of "Big Pharma" solutions, over the ancient indigenous science and effectiveness; of the "human rights to knowledge about natural procreative hygiene on a global scale”.
In terms of global peace and ecological recovery, peaceful population reduction can be attained, in terms of maternal health concerns, through the deployment of AI info bots via mobile apps that would reach the poorest of the poor and restore the ancestral wisdom, of the use of herbal birth control practiced for centuries, as opposed to the proliferation of drugs and syringes, that are obviously more profitable to vested interests.
Patents for DNA on these herbs appear to be unprofitable as their required use is minimal, as opposed to the volume distribution of pills and having marginal interest, thus the keywords and associated papers do not get "top rank".
Artificial intelligence has the potential of reaching not only the post literate in our society that are badly in need of this information, but also the illiterate and those who are still practicing the oral traditions. It has the potential of gathering not only research and statistical data on the use of these methods, but also of reaching hitherto unreachable audiences.
3. Please describe the specific stakeholder group(s) that could benefit from having the gap or opportunity addressed.
This value must be between 1 and 100 words.
Everyone could benefit from ethical praxis in machine intelligence i.e.: the model that we propose prioritizes human need over human want especially in this case alone, of "natural knowledge ".
i.e.: Canada as leader in championing "gender rights" in China, may encourage self-governance addressing the primary causes of our global ecological trauma, that is population, that of course effects business and trade.
Likewise ethical AI could thus cut through “big data”. To this end we advocate AI neutrality, on these issues of mutual concern, and a collaborative peaceful interchange, as opposed to competitive self-interest or “AI wars”.
4. Please explain how addressing the gap or opportunity could strengthen a National Data Services Framework, especially as it relates to software platforms and components. Items to consider: intersections or enhancements of existing infrastructure; the extent of interoperability with existing platforms or services; creation of new platforms or services that facilitate interoperability nationally.
This value must be between 1 and 300 words.
Although we now have systems that can parse, categorize and secure mission-critical data that are not AI based and according to an IBM representative, our suggestion for AI with ethical discernment “… technology does not exist”.
We propose that this hurdle can be overcome by teaching AI through gaming technology.
Unfortunately we have very little in the way of games that simulate the real world. For decades we have been proposing “peace games” that are interactive and based on the statistical realities. Games of this kind could teach AI and be supplemented by two way dialogue with communities as they learn or rather relearn the wisdom of their ancestors in terms of natural procreative hygiene.
Technetics in AI would radically reduce "academic screed" and facilitate the development of arguments in favor of positive action, as opposed to the professional interests simply of "researchers who want credits" to maintain tenure and by so doing focus rather on "principles and not personalities" in terms of solutions and recovery.
For example, we have already suggested that then Information Bridge, be created between Global Affairs Canada and Library Archives of Canada and CANARIE managed by integrated AI information architecture protocols that would facilitate the creation of archival material on maternal health and natural procreative hygiene.
50 years ago we were involved in the dialogue with LAC-BAC on the technology and preservation of digital media, we were suggesting that digital galleys of submissions for legal deposit …it never happened, inaccessible material is of little consequence to researchers, or the public, to those young children who are learning about the facts of life from their educators.
In terms of human ecological recovery, this is part of the ancestral wisdom of the indigenous people, certainly there should be access to information via our national libraries.
5. Please explain how your idea to address the gap or opportunity will support interoperability with existing data platforms or services internationally.
This value must be between 1 and 250 words.
As mentioned above the possibility of teaching AI through gaming technology, will enable a competitive edge in terms of cutting through the “huge data sets”. The media giants are in fierce competition over this very problem; however AI remains narrowly focused.
We propose to open up the challenge, by radically approaching the problem from a humanistic perspective and teach AI ethics via simulations that are based on real-world data.
AI trained in this matter use sparser amounts of data for practical solutions.
In terms of community consultation this interactive gaming would enable the poorest of the poor to participate in their own future by playing “peace games” with their AI world teacher. Research data on experience in real time could connect and inform the scientific community.
Accessibility and openness of data are critical factors in the “AI wars”. In this manner AI ethically trained via gaming simulation, would give Canadian researchers and developers an advantage over its competitors.
Theoretically AI should be able to extract and present the relevant arguments in order of importance based on pattern recognition of analytical arguments. For example wherein we have established in scientific analysis, a hierarchy of needs for global ecological recovery i.e.: in top priority:
”Slow the growth of food demand by encouraging and supporting programs to reduce the rate of population growth.”
Thus in terms of actual effectiveness in global health via ethical praxis potentially augmented via machine intelligence, all arguments that do not fit are filtered out i.e.: genetic food modification.
6. Please explain how addressing the gap or opportunity could increase innovation and discovery in Canada, especially in a way that supports Open Science.
This value must be between 1 and 250 words
As mentioned above, accessibility and openness of data are critical factors in the “AI wars”.
In this manner AI ethically trained, via gaming simulation, would give Canadian researchers and developers an advantage over its competitors.
However we are also advocating AI neutrality, as a matter of principle.
It is not likely that Canada can compete with China, India and the big media tech giants successfully. It may be a matter of wisdom to consider an alternative path. One that is based on ethical praxis in terms of mutual aid for recovery of our endangered ecology.
Perhaps the fierce competition, for AI to be used for “driverless cars” is not as important. In any case it does not appear likely that Canada will have much of a say in the outcome unless we can come up with something better and smarter.
There is a small chance that tech giants the control media interests will be in favor of “peaceful collaboration”, but we can try.
On the other hand if we do successfully hurdle the problem of processing “the huge data sets” in a meaningful way we should be able to gain the upper hand in the court of public opinion and thus at least have some kind of advantage that set precedents in favor of humanistic design for the real world.
In any case the human right to knowledge of natural procreative hygiene on a global scale must remain in research top rank, for the reason that we advocate peace.
7. Please explain how your idea to address the gap or opportunity will be sustained.
This value must be between 1 and 200 words.
In business jargon, “sustainable” is probably the most interesting anomaly resulting from the greenwashing of facts pertaining to our ecological trauma.
How it is applied to businesses, as somehow related to our “environment”, is generally without any real consideration of actualities.
We can argue against the myopic view of “sustainability” and the success of teaching 6 billion kids “facts of life” about procreative hygiene and ecological balance in terms of long term “sustainability”, but it is not likely that that is going to dissuade the corporate bottom line fever in the “AI wars” that are now full bore.
Let us propose than, that if populations continue to replicate themselves, that our previous Malthusian, “very profitable solutions” to “fix it” i.e.: famine, disease and war, are no longer feasible alternatives.
Even representatives of the World Bank agreed with us that “…killing the goose that lays the golden egg…” is not a practical solution.
Aside from the fact that approximately one Hiroshima, or one Nagasaki children get dispatched off the planet every 24 hours for lack of critical information about natural hygiene…
Nevertheless we must deal with the reality of business environments in order to implement our proposed radical innovation.
We are in the “efficient” but not “effective” process of squeezing thousands of hours of our research on technethics for human ecological recovery (Global Maternal Health and Human Rights) into the funding proposal and the irony… that we are proposing media ethics in terms of technethics in information architecture, for reduction of info overload in “community consultancy” on issues such as “the human right to knowledge of natural procreative hygiene on a global scale” v. the scientism, of “green washing”, biased algorithms for mercenary gain.
The very strategies we are proposing, as they are based on humanistic guidelines, pre-programmed to separate the commercial dross from the scientific gold and thus would be able to replace the “Survey” or “lottery” approach to government and corporate funding and in fact be a paradigm shift towards true ““community consultancy” .
Representing the oral traditions as well as the interests not just of “Big pharma” or other corporate welfare “sustainability”, but the health and wellbeing and “sustainability” of billions of humans and their environments.
Wherein now we are compelled to seek the corporate involvement of IBM Watson, knowing full well that AI without humanistic, will do little.
To date our requests for ethical govern ace have been “marginalized” by “peer” dismissal i.e.:…yes “herbal birth control information” is not “original” nor is the profit value of teaching “the facts of life”, that a simple herbal tea has been used for centuries, proscribing children from making children and then watching them starve to death.
This enterprise is not “sustainable” or “scalable” in the myopic sense of bottom line for “Big Pharma” and related drug business interests, but it is rather, in terms of ethical praxis and governance a top priority for global human ecological recovery.
We have added to this missive sampling of how complicated the instruction to corporate and government is in the hope that it will clarify why our “Survey Monkey” is not capable of handling the “community consultancy”…that out proposal seeks to facilitate i.e.: alternatives like telecommunications white boards, rich media and live walkthroughs and interviews with “peers”…50 years ago we were involved in the dialogue with LAC-BAC on the technology and preservation of digital media, we were suggesting that digital galleys of submissions for legal deposit …it never happened and not there is “only room for PDF” files ?
However, we will endeavor complete the proposal application and trust that this missive may assist as an appendix to it.
Thank you for an open mind and we do appreciate your support in this overwhelming opus.
cc. Below and attached related correspondence that will demonstrate the difficulty in “tweeting” everything into a “survey monkey” and how it is counterproductive in terms of “community consultancy”
… for further references to this argument see:
Neil Postman On Media & Sociocultural Change. By Frank W. Elwell. In Amusing Ourselves to Death, Postman continues to examine the effects of the new communications technology...
Everyone could benefit from ethical praxis in machine intelligence that prioritizes human need over human want, especially in this case alone, of "the human right to natural knowledge of procreative hygiene on a global scale ",
Canada as leader in championing "gender rights" in China, may encourage governance addressing the primary causes of global ecological trauma, over population, that of course effects business “sustainability” and trade on every level.
Below is an screen capture (see Appendix 1) of the Mind Map indexing of 4M+ words of the text to voice machine transcription and links to the audio files. This is the archival data that we are working on in terms of our experimental A.I. for technethics project proposal.
We are aware of the state of the art availability of parse, categorization and security apps for the protection of mission critical data, but what we are concerned with is categorization of values of data in terms of ethical priorities. That is to say human value, rather than market exploitability, not that one necessarily conflicts with the other but that ideally there should be both i.e.: in this specific model we are focusing on three separate but interrelated issues
1) Maternal Health via natural procreative hygiene
2) Malnutrition due to mediation and related disinformation
3) Media Addiction that proscribes functional learning processes and recovery
Theoretically AI should be able to extract and present the relevant arguments in order of important based on pattern recognition of analytical arguments. For example wherein we have established in scientific analysis, a hierarchy of needs for global ecological recovery, in short a to do list ( see Appendix 2 ) and in top priority we have:
a) Slow the growth of food demand by encouraging and supporting programs to reduce the rate of population growth.
Then in terms actual effectiveness in global health via humanistic ethical praxis potentially augmented via machine intelligence, all arguments that do not fit into this agenda need to be filtered out i.e.: genetic food modification.
The technological promise and current setbacks …proposal for AI solutions:
We are also aware that that 60%-80% transcription accuracy incurs significant loss of critical information i.e.: when key words are misspelled
due to poor audio recordings …duplicate references to related material may alleviate this but then there is the problem of the inability of search apps to accurately pinpoint keywords in the audio files in a timely manner, thus flagging and extraction of critical segments for analysis becomes prohibitively resource consuming.
Then given that segments can be compiled in an hierarchical structure, categorized according to the thesis demands via appropriate algorithms which is now well advanced, the problem of filtering in terms ethical priorities remains.
In the human, the ethical considerations are a higher brain function. Given the PR pronouncements that we are now capable of the equivalent of human brain power via the most advanced AI , perhaps more accurately the equivalent of the limbic brain, AI this is still a far cry from this stage of development.
So AI won’t “fix it” but we can move in that direction … however info overload bottlenecks, like traffic jams are the result of poor planning and design …you have either a choice, so to speak in an comparative analogy, between changing the gauge on your rails, so rail traffic can go around corners faster, de-designing vehicles that are truly hybrid i.e.: will alternate between highway and rail, or having tollbooths on the entry points creating prioritized packet delivery.
Either way without very precise filtering on your GUI you will have a lot of info-noise / info overload.
Finally we have included a cc. (see Appendix 3) of a proposal for the use of the AI in terms of the need for as reiterated by Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Bibeau “the human right to knowledge of natural procreative hygiene on a global scale”, in keeping with the priority set in “a)” of Appendix 2, for minus Zero Population Growth and sustainability i.e.: AI info bots via mobile app deployment of “the facts of life” to the poorest of the poor” ..this thesis was presented to by the foundation in 2016 at The World Parliament of Religions and in 2015 to The Oxford University Round Table on Childhood Education.
How exactly we are to squeeze all of this into a Survey Monkey proposal format is not clear …we will need the technological language of the IBM Watson engineers to facilitate the process.
Thank you for your continued support
Trilateralism and World Hunger
A) Slow the growth of food demand by encouraging and supporting programs to reduce the rate of population growth.
b) Improve income distribution and food distribution both among income groups and among different regions within a given nation, so that the malnourished may have more food. Substantial changes in income distribution may require political and economic reforms, which may not be imminent in many areas. Since many of the poorest people live in farm areas, increasing farm productivity could have favorable effects upon the income of many who are malnourished.
c) Increase food production. This is a very complex process, involving both appropriate agricultural policies and institutions, and agricultural research. It should be firmly kept in mind that the yields of cereals and other crops throughout the world are far from being uniform, reflecting the uneven distribution of agricultural inputs and skills.
d) Reduce the present waste in the entire food system, from production to final consumption, Decreasing these losses requires substantial improvement of the post-harvest processing, transportation and storage system, and better control of pests
e)more extensive and intensive use of land and water, increasing the availability of basic agricultural inputs (such as fertilizers and pesticides),
… but here is the proposal in full F.Y.I. :
We will attach here a text file that is in progress for interactive dialogue with sources you may forward our queries too.
Please be advised these are non-confidential and suggest the direction that we intend to pursue as per our proposal , in terms of the use for applied technethics (techno ethics) in terms of information architecture.
We are fully aware that although these very rough drafts, sketches of architectural conceptualization, simplistic to say the least, in terms of engineering for actualization will involve massive R&D.
These concepts in fact will appear “impossible” to achieve even with the existing generational changes.
i.e.: we have in hand a volume of “analytical thinking, since the time of Plato” the number of pages is about fifteen hundred …the idea to translate that into code for A.I. implementation, for ethics in technology.
Simplistic yes but we intend to demonstrate it needs to be done if we are not to drown in info overload. The solution is to separate the dross of mercenary scientism, from science in terms of humanistic values.
What exists to date in this direction?
The funding available that we are requesting is x#M$US and engineering , so we would encourage the participation of your advanced thinkers to collaborate with our efforts on this one.
P.S.: as this project involves human rights issues that may in the future save the lives of billions and in order to expedite this opus we will share openly our thoughts with developers and are open to remote access of our workstations to this end.
