Exponential productivity through optimization of knowledge yield with distributed artificial intelligence systems


AI systems create value by converting human knowledge to digital form that can then be converted to other forms of energy, including kinetic. At the atomic level knowledge created by human intelligence and augmented by machine learning can be viewed and expressed as an extension of relativity discovered by Einstein more than a century ago.

A 20 year trek in AI systems


This is a personal story about our real-world experience, which contains little resemblance to most of what is written about entrepreneurism and technology commercialization. While our journey has been longer than most, scientific commercialization (aka deep tech) typically requires two decades or more from theory to market. Read More

Why every company needs a new type of operating system enhanced with artificial intelligence


Even though some companies may seem well positioned, the fundamental economic and business environment is rapidly changing. To the best of my awareness, survival from this point forward will essentially require a strong AI OS for the super majority of organizations. Read More

An open letter to Fortune 500 CEOs on AI systems from Kyield’s founder


I wanted to share a general pattern that is negatively impacting organizations in part due to the compounding effect it has on the broader economy. Essentially this can be reduced to misapplying the company’s playbook in dealing with advanced technology (AI systems). Read More

A million in prevention can be worth billions of cure with distributed AI systems


Every year, natural catastrophes (nat cat) are highly visible events that cause major damage across the world. In 2016 the cost of nat cats were estimated to be $175 billion, $50 billion of which were covered by insurance, reflecting severe financial losses for impacted areas.[i]  The total cost of natural catastrophes since 2000 was approximately $2.3 trillion.[ii] Read More

Why the U.S. must lead the world with intelligent infrastructure


The focus should be maximize benefits from our inventions, engineered systems and technologies to recreate a sustainable competitive advantage. One benefit of lagging behind other countries in infrastructure is that much progress has been made in recent years. Future projects can be embedded with hardware that enable intelligent networks, which can then be managed with distributed operating systems enhanced with artificial intelligence (AI) to meet the diverse needs of our society.

Independence Day lessons on adaptability and survival from the Ancestral Puebloans


The photo above represents a learning opportunity especially relating to survival and adaptation. Recently completed by my wife Betsy[i], the artwork was inspired by our visit to the Acoma Pueblo a few months ago, which is one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in North America. Ancestors of current residents have lived on top of a 360-foot tall rock tower since 1150 A.D.
