Hi. I'm Albuquirky (or Mark, if you prefer). I'm interested in evidence-based sense-making and forecasting. My academic background includes psychology, philosophy, information and communications technologies, organizational behavior, individual and organizational learning, natural sciences, communications theory, and knowledge construction and transfer. I facilitate a discussion group focused on brain, mind, and AI in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. I'm currently learning and practicing creative writing with projects in the technical sci-fi domain. I play acoustic guitar passably and am learning keyboard at a glacial pace. I'm incubating a project in involving psychometrics (scientific design of information gathering instruments) and framing (scientific selection of metaphors and other linguistic representations), neither of which are my specialties, to bypass cognitive biases in getting at what sorts of 'worlds' people would prefer to live in if many of the constraints they imagine were able to be negated by technologies and new forms of social, economic, and political organization. My hobbies are learning, hiking, and creative expression. I'm also into coffees, beers, and dark chocolates.

It seems you're about to make a wrong turn.

Great name Mark.

 

"cognitive biases in getting at what sorts of 'worlds' people would prefer to live in if many of the constraints they imagine were able to be negated"

Can you give examples of those ?

 

I admit , my first reaction was the same kind as Yuli Ban.

Welcome to the forum. I look forward to your contributions.


The principles of justice define an appropriate path between dogmatism and intolerance on the one side, and a reductionism which regards religion and morality as mere preferences on the other.   - John Rawls
