Intersections of ID Ego, SuperEgo && PID, AIGo, SuperAIGo

POSTED IN: Cognitive Wingman

PID, AIGo, SuperAIGo


By 2050, if even half of the technological breakthroughs happen in Brain Computer Interface that are being explored today, what might a highly integrated human-BCI-AIBot look like?  And how will people describe the intersections between human consciousness-knowledge-ideas and the same ideas at or across a Fuzzy Edge? 


Whether it's from the more invasive neural-lace , or the less invasive fNIRS (functional near infrared spectroscopy) - it seems quite likely within a few decades we're going to continue to get more integrated.


This interconnection got me thinking - how might we describe the interface & hierarchy of AI that mirrors the human one, in a language that will resonate? What ego-stack might make a Cognitive Wingman tick?  And most importantly - can we make it sound sort of cool and catchy?



About a hundred years ago, Freud 1920 presented the idea of ID EGO and SUPEREGO in an essay titled: Beyond the Pleasure Principle.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id,_ego_and_super-ego

"According to this Freudian model of the psyche, the id is the set of uncoordinated instinctual trends; the super-ego plays the critical and moralizing role; and the ego is the organized, realistic part that mediates between the desires of the id and the super-ego."


As with humans - the stack of AI has a hierarchy of needs - and concerns ranging from the terrestrial to the celestial....


What might this look like? 


I originally had the lower level instinctual pieces (reptilian, base of brain) tagged as COP - Computer Operating Properly (COP Watchdogs in the old days) but PID ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_identifier ) has a better ring.


The intersections are interesting.

  •  Can people have shared AIGo? (ego) and are there hyper-personal my-AiGos? (MAIGos ?)
  • If a person, group or AI avatar were to create a 'mind palace' and represent ideas (mental models) - where would they live?  And how would they be represented to different users?
  • What role might ethics, compliance and regulation play in SuperAIGo?  How about access?
