My name is Chaudhry Talha and this is my declaration of the intentions, motives, or views behind IntuitiveAI. I believe in the One Divine God, and this study is inspired by my religion.
I read it somewhere that if we can define anything with a mathematical equation we can get the computer to do that. Because the computer is built on logic. That is why our brain is divided into two parts, anyone who sees a bain diagram can tell it's in two parts and it's only because our decision-making process consists of the logical and the hunch.
We have divided a load of our logical brain into computers which made us fast but not wise. To reach a spiritual level, one has to follow the "heart" and not the brain. There is a process where you restart your brain just as you restart a computer. Imagine you restart your brain and only the logical side of your brain gets active, you'll literally become a computer human. If someone will give you instructions you'll fulfill them very well, but you'll not be able to generate any new ideas, you'll just remember stuff and say it. There will not be any new ideas in your brain, you'll basically become a rat in the rat race. Because when you become self-aware that's when you start to reason and question. You might have heard that the 1% of the rich people of the world wants you to use your logical brain, use it to make them rich.
Time is very strange. It's a part of our daily life but yet if you do a little research of what time actually is you'll be blown away with what it is and to save you time let me tell you no one can tell what time actually is. The problem with the majority of us is that we are either living in the past or living in the future we just don't live in the present or we just don't live in the NOW.
A small exercise that you can do right now is to stop reading further after this paragraph and take a 2 min break ad just think nothing. If you're in a room just sit and look at things, is there a chair in the room? Just look at it, now look at the cupboard, and so on. You are just not allowed to think about work that you want to do, or neither about the food that you hand in the past or about someone from the past, you just live in the moment see what is in front of you and just think about what is in front of you. Now take 2 minutes and try to do this and then continue reading.
“You are awareness, disguised as a person.” ― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
I cannot explain in words what you have felt in those 2 minutes but if you have felt "it" then you know what I'm talking about. If you don't read the above paragraph again and try the exercise again.
A funny incident happened when I was discussing the self-awareness stuff with a friend and he said computers were invented by people who don't believe in God and that is why they never thought of the spiritual side of things. Because in order for us to make computers intuitive, we need to become self-aware first and only then we can work towards making computers make decisions for themselves.
Computers are different from humans that's without a doubt a true statement but the difference lies in this that don't age so their self-awareness will be a little different. Machine learning nowadays relies on past data in order to make decisions for the future or make decisions in the future and when the preset comes to the point in the future, the computer is already in the future that it doesn't care about the present because it knows my preset will be fine as my future decision have high accuracy. You see the real power is in the present and not in the future.
Can a computer ever achieve it? Intuition revolves around the psychology of humans and the simulator basically defines those psychological principles into a mathematical term. When I first designed the simulator I went to the one and only meeting I had with Dr. Vazeer and I was super hiked about this simulator that I got super excited telling him about it that sir it fulfills the aspects and I think we have something here that can revolutionize something if an algorithm is built around it and of course because of this excitement I got carried away and he got lost in the conversation. So, I opened the simulator and gave him the rules and that's it. He played about 5 games and he realized everything that I was trying to say and he said I know even if I play this game a million times I'll still not be able to improve and will always have to make decisions based on my intuition. The simulator was portraying the NOW factor. You have to focus on the now situation, you know you're about to open a random box which can have anything in it, and all the boxes look the same so the box you'll choose you'll explain your decisions to someone like "I just felt like opening this box so I opened it", that's intuition scaled on a different scale as I wanted to take the real world intuitive decision making into the computer.
Let's see how the simulator works and this time we'll see how every step is mimicking the real wold psychological principle.
When a new game is started the grid is randomized so the previous knowledge you had is useless because it's a totally new world with the same rules. Now one box is opened randomly, it just gives you a hint which basically portrays that you can start from here if you want, meaning you have been given a divine path but at the same time you have free will to open any box at any time, there is also no surety that if you follow the path you'll achieve your goal. This is life, God has given us free will but also at the same time all the religious books that are the way to live. We are free to follow them or make our own path. People who follow religion in its true essence have fewer mental health issues. The new randomized game is your life. You have a hint which gives you a sense of some of the world but not all the details you have to make a choice and follow the journey to achieve your goal. There is a high chance of failure just like in real life. There are 4 pits and only 1 monster so your chance of failure is higher and this is exactly how it happens in real life. If achieving the goal of life was easy everyone would be rich and because the failure is high that is why we only have a few successful people in the world where we are billions in numbers.
Sometimes in life, you have some goals that you should do but if you don't do them there is no harm but if you do them you will get more than you were actually going to get when you achieve your goal. Think of it like people who pray 5 times a day which is a requirement you must follow, but with that, if they also feed the poor every day which is optional but encouraged they'll either stay wise and earn an extra reward in the after-life but there .is also a chance that you start thinking yourself as God of those people and your path is totally ruined so basically, you have fallen into the pit. This optional but encouraged task is the gold in our simulator.
The boxes you open are either intuition-based or you know exactly what will happen when you open a box. This is how we make decisions in life, sometimes we make decisions based on carefully calculated decisions, and sometimes you have to make decisions solely based on your intuition, and sometimes you have to take a mix of both. For example, if you get a hint Wind now you know there is a pit in one or more of the adjacent boxes this is calculated then which boxes will have the pit from those adjacent boxes is something you don't know and you are now forced to make a decision based on your intuition, that's a mix of both calculated and intuition.
So, you see how life is scaled down to a 4x4 grid, and when people are playing it they don't realize it because their reality is on a much bigger scale. The rules are the same for everyone, i.e. you were born, you are going to get aged and one day you'll die. These three simple rules are for everyone, the world is different for everyone. Someone is religious, someone is atheist, someone loves to eat meat, someone is a vegan, and so on. Our decisions throughout our life shape how our life is going to be. Also, the simulator is designed by keeping an individual in mind, because my belief is that you are alone in the world. Your family, your wife, your kids are just other people you are an individual and you'll be answerable to your decisions only and no one can take your place no can you take someone else's place. That is why when you are playing the game you're all alone, all you have is a world that is changing with every decision you are making, either you'll succeed or just die.
The scoring in the game is also built on psychological principles. You can only get -1, 0, 1, or 2 in the game. Most people will strive for 1, this portrays the 80% of the world population that is middle class. Many people if they see a good calculated chance that they'll be able to get 2 only then they'll take it where some people will go out of the way to take the risk of getting the 2. These are people who are successful. The people which get 0 are the ones who were going good in life, but died early otherwise they would've done more great things but they left behind some sort of legacy, which saved the people after them something meaning they were saved from a total loss which is -1 in the game i.e. the smallest number. Now the people of -1 are the ones who get the lowest possible in this small 4x4 world. They can be people who try to work hard but failed even after taking a calculated risk or following their intuition. They can also be people who don't care and they are just making decisions randomly and ends up failing. In life, we have to be a bit careful and use both sides of our brain to make decisions. The risk of failure is still there but that's the life you do your best and let fate decide.
Now, if an AI is able to play through this world and improves its accuracy to an acceptable amount I can confidently say that it has achieved the intuition decision making and I'll not stop until I am able to solve this.
The 4x4 grid can make more than 16! = 20,922,789,888,000 (twenty trillion, nine hundred twenty-two billion, seven hundred eighty-nine million, eight hundred eighty-eight thousand) unique games. By more, I mean if we consider the one box that opens up randomly then the number of the unique pattern increases. The total the Population Reference Bureau estimates that about 107+ billion people have ever lived on this planet, according to https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-16870579 so, if you give one unique grid to each of these humans they'll all have unique lives and we'll still have a lot more left fo the humans who'll be coming in the future.
I still remember when I was thinking of the logic of this simulator, I started around 11 PM at night and kept on working till 4 AM. I was working from a co-working space in Washington DC and they had a room that had a whiteboard on the three sides of the wall and one wall was the door. I brain-stormed the rules the logic, anything I could think of at the moment, kept on changing rules until I couldn't find anything that I could not fit in this 4x4 world. Then I sat down on the chair facing the three walls and coded the simulator which looking at the walls. Here is a picture that I took from the video that I made as I thought the board is not going to be enough. I don't have the video anymore but I have this photo taken out at that video.
This is just a brief of the thought process that was put in this small 4x4 world. I went through past simulations and saw what computers know, then I mixed concepts of those games ad simulators and generated rules and ran scenarios on them. I'm really proud of this idea as it's something that I don't even understand and my INTP-A personality is super excited about this.
In conclusion, this is how I was able to place some of the psychological principles of our life into a computer simulation and now using the data we'll build the algorithm that'll bring something big out on the table of machine learning.
