Welcome to the Patterns of Intelligence wiki.
Feel free to use this Test Page
We will be working in small groups throughout the quarter. Each group will focus on a different aspect of a broader topic or question. All the groups will be using the same framework for their focus. The work of each group will be entered in the topics below to serve as a record of the group knowledge we have built.
- Constituents of Intelligence - This is an example from the course Civic Intelligence: Theory and Practice.
This contains (or will contain) all of the contents of the Civic Intelligence Research and Action Laboratory (CIRAL) Group Project for Fall 2011.

Seminars will be an opportunity to weave together the work we do in our small groups into the broader topics we are exploring. Course readings will also be covered in their relationship to the work we are doing in class and program themes.
In class thoughts
Did you know about the army combat tank simulations? Where soldiers are put in replica landscapes and fight simulated tanks run by other solders? Guess what they did in real combat... They kicked the asses of the local veteran forces and said it was easier than the game world.
The notion "of saving the world" is BS. The world is a manifestation of the most amplified/communicated ideas and thoughts. By this reasoning, a mass exodus to gaming will have a similar effect. If ideas to solve real world simulations within games become amplified, they will naturally cross over and manifest in the real world.
Is it possible to end world hunger? I would ask to that, is world hunger being solved already? They very fact that the sentence "end world hunger" has been presented as a problem to solve and is in the awareness of many, means that it is somehow already in process of being solved.
