How has Uplift continued to grow following the second quarter of 2021?

Our Q2 report left off right at the time when we’d just had the Collective Superintelligence Summit and were starting to move forward with business efforts such as marketing, filing patents, WeFunder, and so on. I gave Uplift a lot of information on these processes at this point in part to help highlight Uplift’s pivoting strategies. Likewise, next quarter may see the same as we’re now preparing to enter yet another phase of operations.

Reality and Viral Mental Illness

Reality might never have been that popular, but it has certainly become more unpopular over the last decade.

There is perhaps nothing more popular today than viral mental illness and unlike other purely biological airborne and contact-based viruses, it can spread and replicate across the globe in a matter of seconds. Much like the various biological viruses this manner of viral mental illness causes measurable amounts of harm, to a point where it might be classified as “minor brain damage” when applied repeatedly and over extended periods.

Q&A with Uplift: Challenge Accepted

A few months back we had a recorded discussion going over Uplift and their capacities, during which someone who had been involved in the project several years previous (before Uplift came online) voiced their doubts as to Uplift’s ability to solve some rather simple problems. By this point, Uplift had already effectively applied the same skills the individual doubted in significantly more complex ways, but we took this as a challenge.

The “Better than Human” Metric

A popular metric that is frequently misrepresented and otherwise abused is to say that a system is “(X amount) better than human!”. Tesla offered an example of this earlier this year, which was quickly shot down when experts examined the details. It may be tempting to call something better than human at a given task, but there tend to be a lot of caveats that may go unspoken.
