A Breakthrough Advocacy For Music Programs In U.S. Education

Without knowing it, people engage with symphonic music on a regular basis. Think about it. Hollywood and the gaming industry extensively use symphonic music in their movies and games. The symphonic music uniquely enables emotion to imbue images with feeling and verbal dialogue with context. If you were to turn off the symphonic music, the images and dialogue within movies and games would come across as cold and incomplete. This is because the viewer would lack the emotional experience that …

How Technology Triad Apps Will Radically Disrupt Society

On October 23, Google announced it had successfully tested the quantum computer it had been creating. Google said their machine was able to finish a computational task in just 200 seconds — and that the world’s most powerful supercomputers would need 10,000 years to accomplish the same task. From this event in history, start your stopwatch. In only six to eight years from now, society will be radically disrupted: There will be 20%- 40% unemployment for blue-collar and white-collar workers. …

A New Process To Generate Relevant Ideas For Innovation

Unmasking How Intelligence Collaborates With Emotion to Facilitate Human Innovation

All intelligence is artificial. This is because intelligence is just aggregated algorithms. An algorithm is aggregated math. Math is aggregated information. And information in-of-itself is artificial. This means that the intelligence associated with a computer, or an insect or a human, is artificial. The only reason humans perceive our intelligence as being real {nous}, and in essence non-artificial, is because of emotion. So emotion is the non-artificial component that makes human artificial intelligence attain significance and purpose. But both intelligence …

Why Foundations Fund Irrelevant Education Programs

Hundreds of new technology companies are launched every year. Most have some sort of short-term success. But then most fail long-term because their product/service was not scalable. The inability for a technology company to scale means that it was not able to innovate ahead of the evolving needs of society. Therefore that technology company is not relevant to society in the future. All foundations know that they are completely out of their league to even try assessing what current technology …

The Bold Strategy to Empower American Exceptionalism

Ever since a 19th century writer described America as “exceptional”, scholars and politicians have constantly referred to ‘American Exceptionalism’ in one form or another. All understand intuitively the powerful confluence of American events and resources that have resulted in such a historic impact. While America has been given a good foundation, in order for American Exceptionalism to become sustainable, a bold strategy must be designed and executed successfully. The following three-step process develops a bold strategy: 1. Define the main …

Why Music and Fine Arts are Essential in Education

Introduction Music and arts programs in education are under assault with an increasing possibility of being curtailed by legislators and school administrators during each budget session. Despite considerable research on the benefits of how music and arts wire the brain for creativity, cuts continue to happen. Parent and corporate advocacy for these programs have also seen little effect in saving them from being diminished or eliminated. This dynamic does not change because, in the end, it is all about deciding …

An Open Letter To Peter Thiel

Peter, Here are three concepts that you have publicly expressed interest in: 1. To find something that’s true, that almost nobody agrees with. 2. To fix an institutionalized and homogenized education system. 3. To advance the developed world by being vertically intensive. All three concepts are addressed as a process individually below. As well as being interconnected within a new paradigm that will emerge after a specific event takes place. That event is the launch of LED accelerator – CreateLEDaccelerator.com …

Self directed learning needs to be led by evidence based processes

Article on self-directed learning by Tom Vander Ark. Self-directed learning is the future of U.S. Education. But to get to that sustainable outcome there will be hesitant and cautious experiment after experiment. All the while U.S. Education will be constantly behind the innovation curve. LED accelerator will break this bottleneck by developing its own unique doctrines and learning strategies.  The hyper competitive adolescents within each LED accelerator will continuously adopt best practices to evolve their culture and strive to address Big Opportunities. Outcomes …

The Cognitive Components Of The Mind

Through history mankind’s innovation was based on gaining an understanding of how aspects of nature function. For artificial intelligence to become truly revolutionary, neuroscience must first understand what the cognitive mind actually is. The traits of personality, intuition, emotion and thought cannot originate from a brain cell. The breakdown of a cell goes to molecules, atoms, subatomic particles and all the way down to quantum planck length frequencies. Furthermore, the brain cell dies every 12 years. Consequently, there is simply …
