Defense Innovation Board Public Meeting on Wednesday, July 11, 2018

by Bruce Camber Please note: The two-minute comments that became this homepage

“In the opening remarks today, the question was asked, How do we continue to be the arsenal of democracy in an age of algorithms?

“The simple answer is, Know your algorithms. One of the most simple is base-2 exponentiation, yet most of us haven’t a clue about this simple growth. If we start with the smallest units of measurement, Planck Length and Planck time with mass and charge and simply multiply by 2, over and over again, you will be at the age and size of the universe in 202 steps (or doublings, all discrete groups).  It is very important to know.

“Most of our problems that require our Department of Defense, is when the foundations of understanding are not known, not mutually-shared, or not specified.

“Most all foundations of understanding are relative. The depth and breadth of understanding are limited to a scale which itself is often poorly defined even within our two most important Standard Models for particle physics and Standard Model of cosmology.

“We need to learn more about the nature of these scales and our understanding of mutual understanding. Thank you.” -Bruce Camber (at approximately 4:32 PM on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, at the Defense Innovation Public Meeting next to NASA’s Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Mountain View, California)

Postscript. My recommendation to increase the speed of absorption and implementation is gamification, and one of the world’s top gurus is just across the bay in Fremont, Yu-Kai Chou, who wrote the book, Actionable Gamification. Thank you.
