My day job is writing documentation for developers who work in what is perhaps the most hyped buzz phrase industry today: Artificial Intelligence.
Those who work in AI know that really, it is just a fancy way of saying math. Computers can do math astoundingly fast (this is AKA Machine Learning), which means they can distinguish patterns astoundingly fast. The application of a "known" pattern to a new scenario to achieve a predictable and desired result is the gist of what most AI does.
Conversely, nature has what is more aptly described as "Natural" Intelligence. Every single plant that bursts with seed pods has inherent engineering to maximize success for that plant's "known" pattern ... it rallies and sometimes flocks with others of its kind to further ensure that its cycle can repeat itself and sustain its unique imprint of and on life.
Of course, we can honor their efforts with more #florespondence
Decolonize your thinking! Ecosteader is a network for sharing better ideas around designing, building, and innovating eco-friendly spaces on our shared soil. We collaborate and amplify the voices of all indigeneous peoples with "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) as we seek to build and participate in a better form of Ecological Democracy. Design lean, build green: compost for wildlife-friendly gardens, micro-homesteads, living walls not border walls, off-grid communities, recycled materials as artwork, and more.
We are anti-Realtors, anti-landlords, and against corrupt RepubliKKKan politicians!
