Mind Meld Log, stardate 220607 (7Jun22)

The Denkiri Centre for Creativity was established on Astraios Prime in the early months of 2422 as a means of outreach to the scientists, philosophers, artists, engineers, and designers who dwell in the Gamma Quadrant. Its philosophy was inspired by the Terran author Gene Roddenberry, who had, in the 20th and 21st Century, envisioned a universe in which sentient life forms would gather to share knowledge, conduct research, and improve the quality of life for all. The Centre hosts brainstorming sessions, organizes an open lecture series, manages artistic exhibits, conducts tours, and works to enhance the immersive environment through building, scripting and developing knowledge of the sector and quadrant.

"Artificial Intelligence, Taking care of the Earth"

-AI is in full development in the private sector and already escaping regulation.
-Google, for example, has massive self-modifying computation lying under its search engine. Even the designers of that software don't know how its code anymore as it modifies itself.
-seems very strange that our 'intelligence' doesn't extend to the fact that we are making our only world/home unliveable.
-It would be helpful if people stopped making it political and focus on the science and what we can do as individuals to help within our own means and tools we have.
-look closely at the fact that we each receive a tailored feed in Google search. Biggest search engine? And your feed will likely be different because Google tailors its results to the model it made of you.
-All of us in this circle are inspired by the Roddenberry future. The one where there is no human conflict and we are exploring space together. That'a alluring and exciting. The problem is the path from here to there is not exactly a highway. The idea we can make Mars habitable? Musk wants to be there in 3 years. We can't even live in the Sahara on Earth, where there is ample oxygen and nice gravity and you can drive to the nearest hardware store.
-The best use of AI is Nasa's satellites that monitor the world. You can see documentation of how the world is doing now and in the past and our impact on it.


"Mild Meld is a meeting of minds, a playful tossing out of ideas, silly and serious... the wilder the better... no idea is criticized. We may find that that wild idea and this crazy thought meld together into something really cool, or we may just have collective coffee and rambunctious fellowship. It's all good." As Gene Roddenberry said: "To be different is not necessarily to be ugly; to have a different idea is not necessarily to be wrong. The worst possible thing is for all of us to begin to look and talk and act and think alike."
