In a world overwhelmed with information, it's challenging to distinguish the truly creative stories from the mass. The issue is even more complicated when determining who should make important decisions surrounding digital economy based on the quality of those stories.
Lawrence Au addresses this dilemma through his recently patented computer system, the US20230267275A1. It aims to counterbalance the state of information overload and filter the high quality, creative content from the rest. But why is such a system necessary?
Just imagine a world where a far-off supernova can wipe out humanity. According to Darwinism, unless a scenario like that happens, no evolutionary process will help us develop the advanced astrophysics knowledge and starship-building capabilities we require for survival. Because of this, it is crucial to create a system that fast tracks our way to solutions and, importantly, saves civilization from annihilation.
The patented computer system scans stories and distinguished ones teeming with creativity. The individuals or groups behind these stories then earn the privilege of decision-making power regarding digital assets and the like within this system.
Imagine if we could universally map out every knowledge and understanding available to us. We could use this map to highlight problem areas and provide predictive intelligence to avoid potential issues, thereby greatly advancing our collective understanding and progress.
This patented system can function similar to a real-time news service, pinpointing negative tendencies and revealing new pathways to address problematic areas in our global knowledge tree.
For instance, this system could have prevented the costly, time-consuming decision SpaceX initially made to use carbon fiber instead of stainless steel in their Starship rockets. Typically, it's these type of unanticipated, counterintuitive revelations that are lost in the noise of information we constantly sift through.
The world post this problem being solved could theoretically see humanity leap forward in our collective understanding. Imagine being able to predict and avoid mistakes in various fields just because we have a system that can sift through the mass amounts of knowledge and single out information critical to our survival and advancement.
Under such a system, schools could regularly receive updates about the latest and most creative teaching innovations from around the globe. Governments could more effectively update their policies by quickly understanding the results from a recent social experiment conducted on the other side of the world.
However, as intriguing as this patent is, it is just that - a patent. There is no guarantee whether it will be developed and released in the market. We are left in anticipation hoping this radical, but potentially revolutionary system will come to fruition to help us optimize our global knowledge and creative potential.
