Tweeting competition

[From Rupert Young (2017.05.28 13.25)]

  I was giving some thought to what to tweet to mark the

publication of my paper, and thought I’d solicit suggestions from
you good people.

  So, let's have a competition with a grand prize for the best

tweet suggestion, though not just for my paper, but for PCT in
general.

  With this in mind, what would you tweet about PCT, in 140

characters or less (perhaps allowing 20 or so characters for
hashtag and link) ?

  We can then vote on what we think is the best (this would be much

easier in a proper forum platform!) and the winner will receive
the prize of our eternal admiration and the title of “Twitter
Queen”.

···

Regards,
Rupert

Love it…

Robot shows free will (no predetermined behaviours). It does what a living thing does - control its own experiences #robotfreewill

Great, I'll use it! Though, as you probably know, I think that PCT shows that we don't have free will. This is confirmed on p73 of Marken's Manipulation Manual (aka Carey's Connivance Cookbook) where it says, "... once a goal is set, that pretty much determines what actions the control system must take to achieve it" :slight_smile:

Aha! I think you're saying that actions are contingent on goals. Aha! A
contingency.

I intend to glom onto “Perceptual Intelligence.� Here’s why. I see at least two very different yet equally important twists on the term.

First, there is PI in the same sense of AI or EI or just plain intelligence, that is, some quality of the human mind; in this case, the way we sense, see and view things.

Second, there is a different twist on PI that hinges on the espionage, information processing meaning of intelligence, that is, information related to some issue, matter, or person; in other words, the perceptual input. In a very real sense, perceptual control theory hangs on both

I see lots of uses for both but I really like the second one better.

With your kind permission, Alison, I intend having fun with both.

Absolutely! I’m glad you appreciated it. And I like your extensions of the meaning :slight_smile:
