Dmitry Sokolov Vladimir, тягаться с глобалами как ГП - дело неблагодарное.
Мои скромные результаты:
- 50 тысяч узлов сети знаний "против" 150 тысяч страниц текста ГП - сравнению не поддается по ряду причин
- прототип целостной онтологии, аналогов чему я просто не знаю, не могу сказать, что их нет
- методология систематических системных исследований для построения целостной онтологии, опробованная на практике
- модель единого смыслового пространства, без которой ни о какой координации распределенной коллективной мыследеятельности говорить не приходится
- модель само-сборки команд в условиях нехватки ресурсов. Тоже, не могу с чем-либо сравнивать, просто руки не доходили. Вполне возможно, и здесь изобретаю велосипед.
А почему изобретаются велосипеды - мы, уже, кажется, разобрали: каждый варится в своем смысловом пространстве / информационном пузыре 18m


  • Dmitry Sokolov Ой, забыл о "главном" - платформа для P2P коллективного интеллекта с персональным когнитивным помощником. Без нее целостную онтологию не реализовать. ИИ - мост между личным и коллективным интеллектом.
    План платформы есть. Нужна команда единомышленников. Где их брать - не знаю. Хоть бы кто подключился к работе, хоть в какой роли.
    Все ждут чуда, и по Библии - дождутся...
    Хотелось, естественно, по-уму. А получится, похоже, как обычно... 9m
