Philosophical – Freewill

A post for the possible existence of human freewill

Even if absolute freewill is impossible. Nature can simulate it. Meaning that we need not look at an absolute perfect version of freewill. Just one that can improve, change or evolve. This means we are looking for a practical freewill system that helps make choices that are somewhat efficient. A system that makes choices coincide or at least not go against your will. Since otherwise it will be very inefficient.

Where does freewill come from?

Humans can act upon information. That doesn’t mean I think we all would behave ideally. This because its a difficult problem to generate good information to act upon. But its probably better to rely on your own generated information then to always be dependable on what the outside world will give you.

A guess. Everything that can be recognized can also be generated

I therefore wonder if the choices we make growing up are evaluated. If they are then its possible to classify them into groups under some circumstances. I’m sure there there will be a group that we can say are examples of human freewill. Since the neural net can recognize these type of choices then it can generate them as well.

What about the illusion of free will?

Because you can recognize the feeling of freewill. Your brain can use this feeling as the target for your neural network (similar to a machine learning target). If  your actions then helps generate this feeling over a longer period of time. Then you can say that your actions follows your will and there is no illusion. Possibly you need to generate the “idle” state in the brain also with the freewill feeling as a target.

Idea – Smart Random Numbers

This is another food for thought item.

I think there is potential improvement in the random number system we use for searching solutions to various problems. We humans are not very good at outputting random numbers. I think we just output educated guesses. Then perhaps we could innovate the random number system to a smart system. That is we use educated numbers generated from a neural network. The strategy could then be to progressively work down from educated guesses to completely random numbers. Use only complete random numbers when a solution is not quickly found.

Idea – Engage Parents With Own Pace Free Online Courses

The idea is simple. To give every child equal chances in school why not have national online courses in the subjects for the parents. I believe you can gain a lot for the child by refreshing the memory of the parents. The courses should be free massive open online courses which they can take at their own pace. That is without any start dates or other deadlines. Here it would also be possible to adapt the short courses with useful information for parents.

Found A Good Idea – Borrow Home Internet From The Library

Found the article Borrow the internet? Berkeley Co. library offers new service . Here people could borrow the Internet. I think this could work for Sweden also. For especially elderly people that are afraid they don’t know how an Internet dongle or portable wifi router works. They could get help in the library and try for free at home. Borrowing a free Internet dongle for some period could perhaps then help to close the digital divide. I believe this is important for them because if you are connected you are less alone.

Idea – Handmade 3D Effect Paintings?

The idea is simple. With the help of computers it should be possible to select the 3D depth of the layer in which you will paint. Different layers of the drawing could then have different depths and thus display a 3D-effect when combined. The display could be done on big 3D TV screens until something else is invented. I haven’t seen such a computer program but maybe in the future we could have 3D-effect art.

Guessing – A Cool Idea?

The idea I had was to use a device like a Peltier generator together with an air conditioner. The problem I have living in an apartment is that its hard to install conditioners. If I could convert some of the heat energy from the air conditioner outlet to electricity. I would have an easy way to transport and burn that energy in electrical wires outside the apartment. If this worked I would be able to install many small conditioners in each room so that I don’t need to cool the whole apartment. Just the room I’m in. Further if we do not place restrictions like direct current does on electricity maybe one can achieve a higher efficiency from the Peltier generator. Maybe there should exist a device that generates an alternating current from heat. Perhaps you would not put restrictions on the frequency either.

Idea – Empower Refugees With Smart Markets

(Updated)

Feel free to modify or just take inspiration from this idea. To empower refugees why not give them the opportunity to create a market for their products. Here they could use todays modern tools to enhance the traditional market. For instance one could with little money create a wifi web server with software that would make this market more consumer friendly. The costumer could get various information this way. What products are the most popular at the moment and possibly get sms notifications for when the products they requested are available. Here maybe one could make delayed deals. A notification is sent later if the seller accepted the bargained price. I think you can do the same for time of the day dependent prices also. Here you could send a notification when the price of the products which the buyers are interested in have gone down. The idea is that the product sellers collaborate trough the software so that the consumers only have to connect to one of a few servers but still be able to access all the sellers. You would not need the Internet for this to work. The smartphone can connect to a wifi webserver without the Internet. Even if the market would not cost millions of dollars the virtual space created in the phone could be quite advance.

Philosophical – Thinking In Terms Of Believability

I wonder if we make it to hard for our brains thinking about theories. Either in biology or physics. What if we aim to show why the theory is believable. I think this would give room for further advancements and if there exists something like truth recognition in the brain. This would then give perspective and relax the brain in trying to understand it.

Idea – Spoken Questions In Schoolbooks

I’m thinking an easy solutions to teacher anxiety. The problem where you under perform because your not used to getting questions verbally. Would be to incorporate audio version of written exercises or questions in digital textbooks. The audio version is not meant to be exactly as the text. Here you can use your imagination to guide the student. Give them a sense of direction, encourage or otherwise engage them. I found a good set of information which could be used to enhance the spoken questions on ”Using Questioning to Stimulate Mathematical Thinking” –  http://nrich.maths.org/2473 .

Idea – Should There Exist Two Person Team Employments?

I was wondering if you can make the job market easier and more efficient. As of now you get a job as a single person. What if you could team up with a friend and apply for the job? I’m thinking this might work for online jobs. The employer would get the benefit of a pair that has already worked together before and enhance each others abilities. Since they get graded as a team it would mean that they would teach and improve each other. Why put a team together based only upon their skills. With two person employments you know they can already work together. If the had the same skills they could ask each other. I think this would greatly improve the quality of the work.

Update :

Thinking about this further. Could this idea be used to employ more people in wheelchairs?
