Not all technology intersects, but often a lot of different subjects do thus, a cross-pollination driven mind does indeed have the advantage. Not long ago, I was discussing this fact with someone who had researched and studied several academic topics including IT, philosophy, language, AI, and the human brain. Those were some of his interests, and they do intersect you know, let me explain.
How about natural human language, speech recognition, and how the brain formats itself to deal with various types of languages in various cultures, and how we can use this knowledge to interface with interpretation, recognition, and mathematical patterning. Okay since, I brought up this topic, let’s discuss it for a few moments shall we?
What I told my acquaintance was simply this; “it would appear to me that all of your interests do interconnect – the technology, philosophy, and the human mind all come into play here, after all without that organic brain, there would be no reason to study it all?”
Now then, the advances in language software recognition is cool, would you like to open a conversation on that topic as well? You see, I have some interesting concepts on “human natural language” recognition and thoughts on some of what In-Q-Tel, DARPA, IARPA have been looking for. Would you like to discuss this topic? My concept would be to attach each word with an; intensity level, emphasis level, voice vibrational level (belief of individual), accent number, etc. So, there would be the word with subscripts of 4 numbers, scale of 1-10.
How a word is used in speech, and how various words are emphasized often completely changes the definition, I think we all know of examples like this, so I will spare you the linguistics lesson, except to remind you of the shortest sentence in the English language “I am” and you can see very quickly that how you say that, allows you to change the meaning for the sentence very easily. Still, using my scheme above we can account for that, also we can know that it is English, rather than something in another language which sounds similar, plus, we can identify the speaker by his accent even though all he said was the shortest sentence in the language – do you see what I am getting at?
Okay so, maybe we should discuss how language effects brain formatting, thinking, creativity, emotional flows, math ability, and relationship building, trust, and friendship bonds? Why because as the world gets closer together and folks are carrying around translation apps on their smart phones, we will be able to really get maximum use out of them, without misunderstandings.
That would make the world a better place wouldn’t it? What philosophically speaking, yes it would. Perhaps, then this is a perfect example of why it’s worthy to study multiple topics, and cross-pollinate that information to innovate for our future. Please consider all this and think on it.
