Imagine a world where all sources of Information are structured, organized, complete, standardized, centralized, secure and reliable. Don’t be fooled, this is not the perfect world, but it can connect everything to everything with a minimum effort, a scenario conducive to great unprecedented merger in history: the real world with the virtual.
In our attempts to virtualize the real world, we put everything we consider important on the Internet.
We do this in a disorderly manner, unstructured and decentralized.
To impose a minimum of order amid the chaos of the Internet, we need search engines, discovery engines, catalogs of information, blogs, forums, business listings, maps, complex algorithms, and many resources of all kinds.
However, the Information on the Web are not always secure, reliable, or complete.
The Internet has grown cluttered. For us humans, it is not problem to deal with this reality. We are adaptable, we’re growing, learning and even having fun with it.
But what about machines?
We cannot simply plugging them on the network, it is not safe.
See the example of the intelligent refrigerator.
Although we believe that Internet is growing “exponentially”, it seems to be moving slowly. We say this by comparing what we do today with what it could be done.
Find patterns and Knowledge in the midst of chaos is a costly task, requires time, high investments in education and research, it is reserved for few, and too often it makes us incur errors.
The Zurich Axioms, in particular the Major Axiom 5 (On patterns) says: “Chaos is not dangerous until it begins to look orderly.”.
When we bring Order to the Information, we came across a large amount of Knowledge, implicit, ready for use. That’s the point on Amithings.
Many companies and individuals are betting on technologies such as Big Data, believing they can solve their complex problems in a complex world.
Why is it so hard to find solutions to complex issues, such as the world wide economic crises? The answer to that question might be in the fact that it is very expensive to make inferences in the chaos.
There was a time, right after the popularization of the Internet, when we feel lost amid the (chaos) immense volume of Information, and there was nothing smart enough to help us explore it while expanding. Thus came the era of search engines, which feed on the chaos (the absense of order, organization). As long as there is chaos, we will continue such hostages, often biased and ineffective.
Since the emergence of the Internet to the present day, there have been many technologies, hardware and software, that promised to revolutionize the Web. Most of them failed, succumbed to the power of chaos, to overcome any attempt to control it.
Amithings comes with a proposal for a better Web, more simplified, democratic, reliable and secure, which leads us to the future, those that we see in sci-fi movies, where everything is connected.
