I’ll be presenting From Oracles To Algorithms: Wisdom Acquisition at The Intersection of A.I. and PSI at the June joint conference of the Parapsychological Association and the Society for Scientific Exploration.
From the abstract:
While the study of psychic functioning and development will continue to have a role in personal growth, spirituality, and providing deeper insights into the nature of consciousness and reality, its utility as an information-gathering tool will most likely continue to be relegated to narrower and more highly specialized use cases. As information access becomes more ubiquitous, the real value in psychic functioning will be the ability to acquire wisdom from discarnate or untethered consciousness. However, the current challenge is delineating the boundaries between retrieved psychic information and the psychics’ own mental interpretation of the task and results.
Bridging the gap between Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC), channeling, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI), this highly exploratory research program utilizes various technologies, including random number generator arrays, natural language processing chatbots, predictive text algorithms, and machine-based image generation. To date, the system has been deployed to provide advice for the grieving and encouragement for the disenfranchised, along with providing insights into some of humanity’s most burning questions…
