"At some point humans aren't going to be fast enough. So what you do is that you make them autonomous. And where does that end? Terminator?"

Chess is a game composed of an admittedly large, but nevertheless finite number of potential moves. And so is perfectly amenable to solving by means of two-value (binary) algorithms that are little more than sorting trees. We aren't even close to creating true artificial "intelligence" let alone turning machine based entities into sentient beings. It's a boondoggle being foisted upon a gullible public by what I call the Profits of the Future. cc: @Ian Weinberg.

Cheers!19/10/2017 #12 Lada 🏡 PrkicCongrats, Phil. It looks like it was built recently and not 30-ish years ago.

Comments18/10/2017 #12 Debesh Choudhury#9 Excellent view @Martin Wright .. Security depends on how much we take care about everything .. the smaller details can cause huge damage. Since information is exchanged electronically through the Internet, it has become a challenge for the users as well as the service probiders18/10/2017 #11 Numo Quest#9 From where my experience roams. Breaches only occur in a 'multi dynamic' IT environment there where the static singular implementation does experience 'trials' intrusion without real consequence. Also awareness plays a real part in the cyber crime. Environments where users frequently are kept aware of the dangers simplu obey and act within the framework. More commercial components also increase significantly intrusions, though commerce keep on denying that for obvious reasons.17/10/2017 #9 Martin WrightIn a sense people have to stop thinking of data as electronic and think of it as information.
By giving it a physical form one can start to see where vulnerabilities are.
Most data breaches are through simple lack of care, either by using personal enail to foward sensitive data (this cost Hilary the election) or by not setting a secure entry system.
However do not underestimate the damage caused by deliberate sabotage. These days that is so simple - you can even pass on a virus using text on a piece of paper.
Security is the responsibility of us all.17/10/2017 #8 Debesh Choudhury#7 Thanks @Numo Quest for your follow up reply. The real world is not digital but fuzzy. So the solution to real world problems would also come from fuzzy considerations. Moreover, the solution won't be exactly one. There could be multiple solutions to a single problem.17/10/2017 #7 Numo Quest#6 Thank you for your comment and I really want to urge you to have a very close eye to my reflection. Digital isn't fuzzy because it can't be fuzzy. Digital only works with exact value. The solution to the crime problem is simplification and not exploding commerce. The answer is to safeguard access to data which on itself is stepping back in simpler term to controlled access to that data. I know, this is a 180 degree turn of the availability of Big Data. It proves my point. :O)17/10/2017 #6 Debesh Choudhury#5 Thanks a lot @Numo Quest for your long comment to my small post. The problems are experienced everyday but they come in different forms. So there can't be an exact solution. Now digital is more fuzzy than exact digital. There comes the very often used artificial intelligence (AI). Then AI will never give an easy solution. That is why it is a long run. It is now a battle between the AI of the ethical hackers and the unethical hackers or the criminals.17/10/2017 #5 Numo QuestYes you have a number of valid points you asked our attention for. No, in essence you aren't to right in your publication. Though very understandable that IT professionals intent to approach and portray situation and vision from the individuals professional discipline and profession, there are a number of principles neglected. IT, on all echelons, disciplines, hard, software, processes, projects, used methods are all about one single thing: Digital Automation. Digital automation is subdued to ancient universal principles where I/O (input/output) is the most simplistic presentation of it.
No Input, No Output
Digital automation is all about exact value. No exact value, no progress, it is as simple as that. While many accept influence upon the process of politics, commerce, criminals, the result all will be exactly predictably the same. Huge damages, huge costs, huge delay hence even more costs. Simply because commerce, in this instance, refuses to go back to the origins of Digital Automation. Right now we have complete professional generations not even understanding the essence of I/O or Digital Automation. That is the root cause that cybercrime is increasing, something that we have predicted way back in the 90's of last millennium.
If professionals continue their endeavor in the commercial exploitable sense, yet not return and learn and understand the essence of Digital Automation, nothing will be accomplished for another universal principle states, one only can act if a cyber criminal has found the loophole and abused that. Now we all know that the true cyber criminal is in no great hurry to reveal her/his secret way in. I think we need a renewed way of looking and a renewed way to approach this matter.17/10/2017 #2 Zacharias 🐝 VoulgarisThank you Debesh for bringing more awareness to this crucial matter. I just have to say two things: 1. if there is a data breach, you can be 99.9999% sure that it's due to some negligence or stupidity in the security system (or lack thereof), and 2. I have created a couple of videos on Safari Books Online, where I cover cyber security topics, with a focus on things you can do to improve your own security against cyber threats: https://www.safaribooksonline.com/library/view/introduction-to-network/9781634622813/ and https://www.safaribooksonline.com/library/view/introduction-to-cryptography/9781634622868/

I mean, A.I. is great and all, but fantasizing about a time that A.I. will solve all our problems magically, because it will become self-aware and suddenly decide to take our interests at heart, without any problems, is more science fiction than reality. Emotional intelligence, on the other hand, is all about improving how we relate to each other and fostering a better collaboration.

Comments18/10/2017 #55 Harvey Lloyd#54 My leadership is mostly with my peer group. Children get to close to my heart. My daughter has now taken the lead director position and she has a heart that can compartmentalize many of the events. But even she comes home with a heavy heart in leading children.
The conductor is really what we are when we lead. We are guiding the energies of our teammates to success around the proposed goals.
Thank you for your kind words and the staff here at our firm are an amazing group of teachers and aides who each day face a feedback loop that would make most cringe. Never do they give up.18/10/2017 #54 Joanne Gardocki#29 @Harvey Lloyd, after I made the jazz leadership analogy a book showed up in front of me, "The Art of Possibility" by Rosamond and Benjamin Zander. Benjamin Zander from Wikipedia, "In 1967, Zander joined the faculty of the New England Conservatory of Music and remained on the faculty until 2012 (see below). He founded the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra in 1979 and has been its music director ever since. The Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, for musicians aged 12–21, was founded in 2012."
He speaks so eliquently of the responsibility of the conductor to see that every musician shines. I stand corrected, this kind of conductor is our bridge to the future, particularly with children and those at risk. In truth we are all at risk from time to time. Thank you for all you do and all you are.18/10/2017 #53 Harvey Lloyd#47 It has taken a while and some deep thought to read into the comments you have made here. ALthough agree as we look at the nature of man from the screen we watch. I would say that the two questions create two legs while purpose creates the third. These are not physical legs but represent the facts of questions we seek answers for in daily living.
Specifically within purpose we ascend to seek value in our existence through whatever purpose we pose as righteous. I mean this with our own, individual, self talk realm that no one really shares.
So when i speak to these questions it is within this paradigm that the answers guide us through the events and situations our purpose places us in front.
I see so many who are answering the questions on the fly while supporting a great purpose. This always ends in zero gratification as the purpose is never able to survive the ever changing values of the two questions.
Thanks for the thought provoking perspectives and your kind words.14/10/2017 #52 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#51 I definitely endorse the view of disruption that causes new thought gateways to open. My goals online are determined by a learning pathway and not necessarily at the level of social, in the way it typically defines "social media". The web is better when it has room for this kind of thinking, and that is why I like buzzes like this one.13/10/2017 #51 Harvey Lloyd#49 I find some comments disruptive. @CityVP 🐝 Manjit comment as an example would disrupt the conscious thought flow and bring new thinking and perspective. Disruptive
This what enjoy about real dialogue of exploration.
I don’t mean argumentative disruption but rather disruption that causes new thoughts gateways to open.13/10/2017 #50 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#47 your writing my dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit below kindles many ideas in my head:
With that question I honour the flow that comes with "I complete me". I don't want to marry an incomplete person whose life will shatter into pieces if I leave them.
This quote reminds me of antifragility. When chaos can create better version of us to have antifragility. If somebody's heart shutters into pieces then this person has no antifragility.
The 2nd point is the question if personal branding leads to fragility or antifragility. My initial screening says this most likely lead to fragility. That I shall explain in my next buzz.
May be the authority on antifragility Dr. @Vincenzo De Florio would like to comment13/10/2017 #49 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#46 I am writing a buzz on chaotic comments and if they would have any value. This idea dear @Harvey Lloyd is occupying my mind. It is an extension of my last buzz on dispersal versus agglomeration. My previous comment and the response of our friend @CityVP 🐝 Manjit prompt me to go ahead with writing this buzz. It is proving to be a formidable task. The wisdim of your buzz and all comments here are opening new venues for new ideas to incorporate in my next buzz. How soon I don't know because digesting the comments here requires deep thinking. Thank you for the challenge.13/10/2017 #48 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#47 If you noticed dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit I just wanted to share what am I with you has different meanings in our minds. I aimed at sharing other views of what the great line of who am I with you means. I am reading the great discussions between you and @Harvey Lloyd. Now you have added an even greater depth of what it means.
I go back to my last buzz and honestly I can not recall if either you or Harvey commented on it. In this buzz I ask if dispersal of our seeds of ideas isn't evil. Your comment here is the proof it is not.
Confinement in the boundaries of personal branding doesn't appeal to me either. It is putting me within certain boundaries. This is confinement of my seeds. I would rather have them spread out.13/10/2017 #47 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#43 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee the problem with that song is that it falls back to the romanticized idea of "you complete me". What I like about Harvey's question "Who am I with you?" is two-fold.
1. With that question I honour the flow that comes with "I complete me". I don't want to marry an incomplete person whose life will shatter into pieces if I leave them - but we want that Tom Cruise mythology and we want jobs that compete us because we are predicated by "What do you do for a living" and not "Who am I with you?"
2. Most importantly "Who am I with you?" is a question that provides a dyadic answer. Who I am with you? with Ali Anani is a different answer to Who I am with you? with Harvey Lloyd. Each answer creates a unique stream of dyadic value. We don't construct relationships this way in organizations.
Leaders do have a third leg as Harvey has said in #44 but I hate that third leg. Howard Shultz created a third leg that was pure genius, for in Starbucks his genius was not expensive and overpriced coffee but creating the third space between home and work. I live isolated from the world of work because I am not built of finding meaning in work. I chose to find meaning where meaning originally used to exist prior to the industrial revolution, which is meaning from home.
Instead of the third space that Howard Schultz created I triangulate the base of work and society towards HOME. That is why I hate personal branding with a vengeance and hate it in the same venomous way I view slavery. Today we are not slaves to corporate owners, we are slaves to personal brand. So it is our chains are expressed as "everyone has a personal brand!".13/10/2017 #46 Harvey Lloyd#42 The world is a scary place without “you” with you in it possibilities exist that have not yet thought.
Although sometimes we are discouraged by each other the thought of extended “me” only would be cycles of synaptic storms that always end with the same verdict.
Great song qoute. I appreciate your wisdom as always @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee13/10/2017 #45 Harvey Lloyd#41 I really appreciate your feedback and dialogue. This discussion of the two questions is a consistent and constant discussion of my synaptic storms.
I watch as folks challenge these two questions into a life of success and then those who seem to change their answers based on others within their life. The hopeless helpless cycle.
I have gone as far with close relationships within the team to ask they write a paragraph about who they are with no considerations of others. I find it interesting they cant write anything. Myself i could write ten pages. When it comes to with “You” yet another ten pages, mostly concerning exoploring a new and different POV.
Thanks again, you are a wise man on a wise journey.13/10/2017 #44 Harvey Lloyd#40 Although i agree with you from a philosophical perspective, leaders have a third leg to “Me” and “You”, this would be purpose. In reality they have two purposes, one the human dynamic and the corporate purpose of goals.
From this context i discuss leadership. In an effort of self preservation at the fundamental level of food clothing and shelter, (I would guess many would add internet connection:)) we as a society must either separate and go it alone, or join the tribe in some way to multiply our efforts.
The questions were presented in the philosophical sense that when jioning the tribe to fulfil the fundamentals you had best have answered the latter question of who am i without you.
By answering this question first we can establsih the greatest possibility of fulfillment when answering the question of who am i with you.
By answering the questions for myself, it took away the fear and anxieties that would most likely show up in a proffesional setting. I cant be who i need to be with you or we can share a part of our journey. This is a no fault answer. No it is merely my path and i get to choose, not because “You” are wrong, but rather because we cant share a journey of meaning from my perspective. I rarely find this in my life currently. I find things i dont like but can endure.
This is great but in the end, as leaders we must figure a way to harness as much of the personal motivation of the team without loosing site of the purpose. Shared self preservation used to be enough. Today it seems that folks take preservation for granted in their actions, until grand “situations” appear and threaten their existance, 08-09 economic crisis.
It would appear we have two choices in leadership, force the team into a funnel of purpose or help them find their purpose within the funnel. The latter for me has proven successful.13/10/2017 #43 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#41
"Who I Am With You"
I've been a rolling stone all my life
Flying all alone, flying blind
I've seen it all, I've been around
I've been lost and I've been found but
Who I am with you is who I really want to be
You're so good for me
And when I'm holdin' you, it feels like I've got the world in my hands
Yeah, a better man is who I am with you
I've got a ways to go on this ride
But I got a hand to hold that fits just right
You make me laugh, you make me high,
You make me want to hold on tight, 'cause
Who I am with you
Because of you I'm a lucky man
You're the best part of who I am
[Repeat Chorus]13/10/2017 #42 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#41 you have both dears @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and @Harvey Lloyd reminded me of the song of Chris Young
But who I am with you is who I really wanna be
You're so good for me
And when I'm holdin' you, it feels like I've got the world in my hands
Yeah, a better man is who I am with you…13/10/2017 #41 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI shared this into my White Learning Hive because in that hive I incorporate my learning about both vision and flow, but you have touched major aspects of why I set up my personal learning hive called workable. This is a masterful and marvelous buzz and a privilege to reference and ultimately to return to. Since I am invested in flow I did overlook "who am I with you?" but I cannot understate what brilliance the distinction you have made and coupled with the current state of "who am I without you". That I personally consider "who am I without you?" a perversion caused by personal branding is for me to contemplate, but I invite @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee to note this liberating distinction you have created Harvey with "who am I with you?"13/10/2017 #40 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#39 I love the "who am I with you?" rather than "who am I without you?" distinction. In the latter "who am I without you" we as a society fall for the Tom Cruise character of personal branding a.k.a. "you complete me"
A person frothing for their personal brand definitely wants the other person to "have them" at hello. So Harvey you did not have me at "ego proliferation" because you are a thinking person, so we do have a shared understanding here but that does not mean we are branded by our hips. It is the stuff that is beyond the scope of this post which liberates me.
You went beyond the scope of your post when you wrote "who am I with you". Those five words are so packed with meaning, that on hearing them they open new doors, for one cannot contain what exists within the brilliance of those five words.
"Who am I with you?" therefore deserves to be the title of your book.
We are too tightly woven inside the human corruption within personal branding to trust in natural energy. For one, it puts even greater demand on leadership in order to navigate between the conditioned existence and an environment of flow. A dumb maestro creates terrible music, but modern organizations are tone deaf to this corruption of human spirit.
So it is that an image centered environment coupled with people trying to be something they are not (otherwise if they are what they really are why do they need a personal brand) means people don't feel complete without image. Out of flow thus becomes the norm rather than flow.13/10/2017 #39 Harvey Lloyd#38 Thank you for your comments and share @CityVP 🐝 Manjit
I believe struck at the heart of my thoughts here, but also unearth the complexity when we delve into the motivation of our team members existance. This is somewhat beyond the scope of my post as leaders face the current trends in ego proliferation. Materialism has set the stage that we look at individuals through material things to measure various attributes of ones existance.
Personal brands, identity, ego or the other terms that describe our walk with ourselves are merely that words. We all seek to answer the question Who am I with You? Unfortunately we have replaced the question Who am I without You?
Self Awareness answers both questions but will also separate us from some present relationships that may be important, or so we think. Religion, philosophy and other readings will show us about ourselves and help us form this self awareness. Choose wisely.
Its Monday morning and we have a team that requires motivation. The major points in the post describe how we can move forward with natural energy. Without these major points installed and understood the probabilities of success are greatly reduced or in some cases sustainability within success is challenged.
Your points are well taken and i have tried to refocus some team members to seek the answer to Who am I without You? In some cases this has lead to a recharged team member as they find their own mojo in existance. In most cases it is the hopeless need of self reflection from others that wins.
Leaders today are having to rekindle the fundamentals of harnessing the natural energy without getting to deep into the human condition. The preponderance of personal brand information is a powerful force to overcome in the real world.13/10/2017 #38 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#7 Brand as a musical flow of an organization is what makes brand valuable. Flow has a relationship with diversity, but now consider flow that has a relationship with personal brand. We don't increase diversity when we paint by numbers and follow a certain pattern or socially orchestrated way. Such orchestration eventually becomes homogeneous and not diverse. When I look at people's brand's I see the same tribal features - personal brands create tribes, not flow.
Organizational brands however mirror the music Harvey speaks of here but that brand is special, it is not a mass market. That is where personal brand loses it's meaning for me - because personal brand is trying to stand out in the crowd. It is the violin player who says "look at my violin - it has differentiation".
Yet music of organizational brand is not the conductor but the diversity enabled by leadership, it is not an orchestration like Hitler did at the Nuremberg Rally, it is the enlightenment of value that takes on a life of its own. Personal brand can never encompass that freedom because their is ownership involved - "ownership" as in one's "own image". (Such selfishness !).
That does not jive with the flow of music, then it becomes a singular dance of identity or image. Krishnamurti said it best when he said there can be no relationship with image, for then image is the block between relationship - where image becomes the primary thing. If there is a flow in relationship through the music of brand - it is not a single stock-keeping unit that is a conscious desire to promote one's personal image, it is something that is now life in it's own - and there is magic in that.

Comments10/10/2017 #45 Phil Friedman#42 Ah, Lada, now I understand even better. The WCC is not a significant structural contributor, but essential a surfacing layer and fire-spread resistant barrier. The high admisture of wood sawdust not only lightens the material but probably helps to minimize differential in coefficients of thermal expansion re the GLULAM and surfacing later.
BTW, my share of your buzz on LinkedIn has already racked up nearly 1,400 views and significant engagement. Not bad at all in comparison to the reaction here -- especially when you factor in, what I call, the Reality Conversion Coefficient. Cheers!10/10/2017 #43 Lada 🏡 Prkic#28 Sorry for the late response. I'm in the process of relocation. My office is moving to a different location in the city, and there is a lot of work to do.
Phil, all such research activities are focused on the ecological aspects and finding alternatives to concrete. This method significantly reduces the quantity of concrete.
The image in the post shows the testing process of the specimen consisting of glulam beams on the bottom and the WCC layer over.
Also, very interesting is how two different materials are connected together to ensure distribution of loads but also a solid connection between WCC and timber.
Placing WCC as the secondary (non-structural) layer met all requirements for fire resistance, acoustic and thermal insulation.
As for the lack of the interest, I have nothing more to say. If I had a time, I'd share this myself with my community on LI. Thanks for doing so.09/10/2017 #37 Tausif MundrawalaThis technique should be transported to all the city dwellers in the world. It pains me to read and encounter incidents where a rear part or the entire building collapses due to the dilapidated condition of the structure. It would be of great use here in our city as well as maximum number of people gets killed by huge beams and concrete. Looking at this technology it would be of great help to be placed in dwellings which only uses mortar, concrete and iron beams. Even during any untoward incident people would be safe enough to escape with their lives intact.
Thanks for this quick buzz of yours, my friend @Lada 🏡 Prkic09/10/2017 #35 Lada 🏡 Prkic#33 Although a timber floor slab is claimed to provide a better feel underfoot than concrete floor slab, I never felt the difference on my joints. I've been living whole my life in houses with reinforced concrete slabs and wood floors over. For six years now, I've been working in a 100-years old building with timber floor slabs and what I sometimes feel are vibrations.
To prevent stress on joints, perhaps you can install sleepers subfloor over a concrete slab.09/10/2017 #33 Phil Friedman#32 Joanne, to answer your questions -- 1) epoxy polymers generally do better than polyesters re flammability, smoke generation, and toxic gasses. You are correct, however, that reaction to fire is of concern where polymers (plastics) are involved. Significant improvements can be made by adding inorganic materials to the resins, and in this regard, epoxies are much more tolerant of such additions as to potential modifications of their mechanical properties, which are in general much higher (by 10x on average) than those of polyesters. 2) If a slab floor is to be a "work floor" with people walking constantly upon it, the best way to deal with that is, in my experience, to add a resilient "top floor" over the slab. That can be as simple as rubber or vinyl matting or as sophisticated as a floating "gymnasium" style over-floor. Eh, @Lada 🏡 Prkic?09/10/2017 #32 Joanne Gardocki#27 #28 #30 @Phil Friedman thank you for expanding on the engineering perspective. "Finally, I continue to wonder if a better approach might not be a completely engineered wood member, surfaced with abrasion and fire resistant aggregates held in an epoxy polymer-based matrix?" Wouldn't the epoxy polimer make toxic fumes burning in a building fire? I would also think the profile under heat stress would be unstable and unpredictable in a fire situation, too. Finding your ideas very interesting.
@Gerald Hecht shared a buzz back in July about a prototype for floating islands made of triangular web. I wonder if the floating wood cement mix blocks would make a good material for building on top? The article talks about the webs being able to withstand 50-foot waves. At the time, I couldn't imagine anything on top of the web being able to withstand those same 50-foot waves.
Another question Phil, would you say the wood composit structual floor slabs would have more "give" and be easier on joints for people living and working on the floors? Just one day of standing on concrete floors has me stiff and sore. I can't imagine living in a home that put that kind of stress on my joints yet many housing units are made with concrete floors.
Please tag me in the LinkedIn conversations when you share, Phil. I would love to listen while the topic is kicked around. Again, thank you for enriching the conversation.08/10/2017 #30 Phil FriedmanPS- @Lada 🏡 Prkic, I do believe that the described WCC would be a great material for casting the blocks for the ubiquitous (to NorthAmerica) concrete block building construction. If lightweight blocks could be cast in WCC with self-aligning and self-locking tabs (like giant Legos), the reduced weight might make shipping from centralized manufacturing plants cost-feasible. Resulting in faster, higher-quality assembly on-site by lower-cost, lesser skilled labor. I like that idea a lot, especially in the area of affordable housing. Cheers!08/10/2017 #28 Phil Friedman#23 @Lada 🏡 Prkic, I've now looked at the additional articles listed at the end of the news piece and one of the things I see is that WCC is being used in composite members with engineered wood (GLULAM) in slab applications, for example as the structural floor slabs in a multi-storied warehouse.
In such a case the GLULAM component is used on the bottom where flexure loading (beam bending) puts the GLULAM in tension, while the upper WCC component is placed in compression. This makes sense to me, as it takes the best advantage of the mechanical properties of the materials involved, including the better abrasion and fire resistance of the WCC vs wood.
However, I still wonder why WCC instead of traditional reinforced concrete? Does the reduced structural weight allow a higher live-load bearing for the slab? Even though the upper WCC component will have a lower compressive strength vs reinforced concrete? Or could it be that the WCC component is a better match with the GLULAM component in terms of coefficient of thermal expansion?
Finally, I continue to wonder if a better approach might not be a completely engineered wood member, surfaced with abrasion and fire resistant aggregates held in an epoxy polymer-based matrix?
The issues and questions are quite fascinating and I don't understand why so little interest is shown on beBee by the engineering community which appears to be large. I am going to share this to LinkedIn where I know from experience there are engineers who would love to kick around these questions and the research you point to. Cheers!
