Summary: Can we create prediction models for the evolution of language? In this posting I propose an algorithm to multiply language and meaning dynamically. I also propose that if we combine this “Language Machine” with education we may be able to accelerate human and machine intelligence.[end summary].
In a previous post I listed 200+ human intelligences in an effort to remind ourselves of our often-overlooked intelligence.
I did not define intelligence. I simply listed what I perceive as examples of human intelligent algorithms. For every definition of intelligence that I may be able to list another 1,000 will be listed by other people over time. This is not a bad thing or a good thing. It simply means that we are still thinking. The evolution of our definitions, the evolution of our language to me is a sign of evolving human intelligence.
So, this may lead us to understand that at a basic level, most terms may encounter a set of “expected” definitions or sub-divisions of meanings.
In other words, we can expect each ideology to become a “lens” that will interpret meaning differently. We can expect every philosophy, every belief system, methodology, every religion to interpret meaning differently.
This means that to some extent we can anticipate a “fuzzy” version of the evolution of language.
This may also mean that we can create algorithms to expand and multiply language dynamically. Think of this as Dynamic Dictionaries as predictors of the evolution of language over time.
Let’s go back to the concept of intelligence to multiply this concept we can use the following factorials:
– multiply by every philosophical model
– multiply by every thought model
– multiply by every general belief model
– multiply by every economic model
– multiply by every religious model
– multiply by every industry’s bias
– multiply by every value concept
– multiply by every governmental model
– multiply by every socio-cultural model
– multiply by every discipline’s model of interpretation
The result is hundreds (thousands ?) of definitions for every term. This is the automatized rapid-evolution of language.
In turn, this may also mean the automatized rapid evolution of human intelligences.
*A “fuzzy evolution”. I am using this term to mean a “rough version” or anticipated version of evolution.
