Assumptions: Although automation and design “simplify” our ability to have interesting experiences, complexity is on the rise underneath every elevation and integration of experience. Because of complexity, opportunities to predict, exploit, control, and repair things are more and more reliant on the ability to collect and use information. “Intelligence” is the activity that proactively acquires, organizes and applies information. An “intelligent” party is known as such due to its continual exercise of, and/or immediate access to, intelligence. The desire to explain that exercise and access has generated a cloud of popular terms around intelligence. But their popularity often devolves them into being merely “signs of” intelligence instead of distinctive descriptions about intelligence helping to cultivate it.
Intelligence is an active state An “intelligent” party is known as such due to its continual exercise of, and/or immediate access to, intelligence – especially beyond mere observation and memory. The desire to explain that exercise and access has generated a cloud of terms around intelligence. But due to popularity, the use of those terms often blurs into being merely “signs of” intelligence instead of being distinctive descriptions about intelligence helping to cultivate it. imagination intelligence
Points of Origin Information acquisition does not just “add up” to intelligence. While information is super- abundant, we look for intelligence to be special or exceptional. But the true distinction of Intelligence is not “scarcity”… instead, it is seen in working on information. information Intelligence SOURCES Beyond Observation -- the six “I’s” of Intelligence: where it gets its information The 3 dimensions of Intelligence work © 2014 Malcolm Ryder / archestra research
Intuition Insight A priori understanding or recognition, based on info brought to the circumstance from prior circumstances Post-facto understanding or recognition, based on info brought by the current circumstance Instinct Inspiration A decision directed in real-time by an intuition A decision directed in real-time by a suggestion Introspection Imagination Active perception of a virtual construct, based on surveying of intuitions and tacit information Active conception of a virtual construct, based on arrangements of insight and INTRINSIC EXTRINSIC INTENTION DISCOVERY AWARENESS The 6 “I’s” of Intelligence © 2014 Malcolm Ryder / archestra research
Relatively speaking… Because I had this intuition, it gave me an insight that inspired my introspection, which led to my imagination about how things were probably going to be; and I had the instinct to act on that… © 2014 Malcolm Ryder / archestra research
But what about… If “Intelligence” is the activity that proactively acquires, organizes and applies information, then what is Analysis? Analysis is an investigative technique that leads to discovery. Because analysis can investigate information, any source of information can provide inputs to analysis. All activities of intelligence can make information available that had not been available before. Different kinds of information then may call for different kinds of analyses. Primarily, analysis identifies what elements or components constitute a given item, and how they most likely manage to constitute it. Those identities and relationships are information produced by the investigation, as contributions to discovery.
And what about… If “Intelligence” is the activity that proactively acquires, organizes and applies information, then what is Knowledge? Knowledge is a class of information within a pre-designated context. Because knowledge classifies information, the information can be systematically recalled along with attributes directing its interpretation and associative intent. The context is a “parent” of the classification All activities of intelligence can make information available that had not been available before. Different kinds of information then may be contextualized as different kinds of knowledge – and the same kind of information given to two different contexts can become two different kinds of knowledge. Primarily, knowledge identifies what information is relevant to a given context or purpose, and what kind of relevance is currently validated and prescribed. Those validations and prescriptions are information produced by the research, as contributions to discovery.
