Tom Atlee: Radical Collective Intelligence – The Ultimate Hack?

Collective Intelligence
Tom Atlee

A global network is emergent, Radical Collective Intelligence, that is focusing on Collective Intelligence (CI), Solar Radiation Management (SRM), Veganism and Holistic Management

Three videos and more links below the fold.


MEDIUM VIEW (focus on veganism and holistic management)

THE LONG VIEW (with 30 minute guide):

30 minute version of above:

From minute 3:48 through 8:08, please watch and listen to the introductory framing of the topic, which starts with some quotes from the book Superintelligence by Nick Bostrom.

From there, please jump ahead to the portion from minute 20:20 thru 30:32, in which I present a visual framework within which superintelligence plays the central role in orchestrating the simultaneous (and in many cases sequential) development and implementation of ALL of the solutions needed to save as much of life on Earth as possible.  This 10 minute portion covers everything except the key missing piece:  collective superintelligence.

From there, please skip ahead to the portion from 1:20:00 through 1:36:35, during which I unveil the key missing piece.  And if you want to go deeper still, starting at 1:42:30 I present some more “big picture” stuff.

The balance of the entire multi-hour video includes some rich discussion among the various participants – itself a really great example of collective intelligence in action.

ROBERT STEELE: Tom Atlee mentored me in Collective Intelligence (CI) and it was on  that foundation that I created the Applied or Augmented Collective Intelligence (ACI) approach that is the opposite of the Artificial Intelligence / Stupidity (AI/S) movement, and the natural extension of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) fully committed to being rooted in Human Intelligence (HUMINT). Social media monitoring is for twits who don’t know any better.

Below are a few of my works inspired by Tom and others and then a general pointer to all of Tom’s appearances here. Tom is in my mind a “Buckminster Fuller” icon for intelligence with integrity.
