Sample question 3: “Model and regulate the net effect of mixed human and machine-learning decision-making in climate-relevant decision-making processes.” (I don’t know how to do this yet but this project sets up an analytical framework to discuss conditions of the possibility of doing so in the future.)
3 All language evolves in the climate system.
—Language 1.0 is the language of biological life, but including mathematics / logic;
—Language 2.0 the language of cultural (human) life, including ethics.
—Language 3.0 the language of future technological life (modeled as process).
Language 3.0 is a mix of languages 1.0 & 2.0, and potentially if not necessarily contains further elements. This also follows Max Tegmark Life 3.0 but clearly needs refining; little useful literature exists yet that could address climate-relevant scales and timescales.
This is far from the first question to ask in this project. However, in a world with AI (machine learning) used even in mundane processes in all walks of life, this question is philosophically and pragmatically climate-relevant. Its implications may currently not yet be widely understood by lay audiences, if it is at all discussed in public at large yet. This illustrates the need for mental models (‘analytical frameworks’) as could potentially be proposed, simplified, and tested here later.
