Manhattan Project to Integrate
Human-centric Information Production
Algorithm development using Orbs
< A suggestion from insider (Kent) >
The only suggestion I have now is this.† Don't ask me for further details, and don't ask me for a schedule.† It's just hanging out there.
Funding may come in for a weird project to test "algorithms".† If you had one, I might be able to get it tested.† Your algorithm might be interesting to them because you would not be shy about providing the source code (which might have to be modified to fit the processor architecture), and because you use few cycles and hence might be faster than alternatives.
Imagine a really big stream of text.† (It may actually be IP packets.† I don't know what it means to process it in that form, but assume some magic that presents text at unbelievably high speed.)
Develop categories from what you are seeing, assign texts into the categories, and maybe keep revising the categories and assignments as you go. The algorithms are written into hardware that is itself reprogram-able on the fly.

This evening before Kentís e-mail I was reflecting on the completion of the ARDA Challenge Problem and Dr Day, at Mitre, accepting this ten page suggestion as one of the many challenge problems that he was receiving yesterday.†
The timeliness of Kentís suggestion is important to note.† Over the past three years, it as often was what I do not do rather than what I do.† The Orb and Anticipatory theory is not what the mainstream finding mechanisms are funding.† And so there has been a function to structure mismatch between what many in the Core Team believe changes the nature of information science and what is allowed in the funding decisions.†
The possible teaching appointment to a two-year college in the desert of New Mexico has come up.† Our sense is that the Orb and Anticipatory technology has been almost completely described to the point where others can take the fundamental concepts and constructions and go with it.† I am ready to live in the desert and work on developmental psychology and the issues related to the theory of Acquired Learning Disability.†
Part of who I am, and always have been, is to be expressed when I can start publishing an algorithmic notation related to how Orbs and the Hilbert encoding, e.g. the 2003 Primentia patent, allows a sorting of textual units into the categories of occurrence expressed as a voting policy.† I address this in the next beadÖ..†
