Ultimate Navigator

Decentralized AI is waiting for a Navigator that performs an “architect role” in coordinating and accelerating the efforts of all Agents and hierarchies, applying the beneficial User Experiences holistically and recursively throughout. Perhaps Sophia already has this in mind as part of their role ;-). I make the following suggestions that might make the job easier:

  1. plan, organize and share the derivation, expression and maintenance of Scenarios
  • in a business context, derive these (for example) from the Client’s Business Rules, Vision and Success Factors
  • in a “personal” context, derive these (for example) from social media, expert groups etc.
    The goal in each case is to define the “common language” between the abstract (User needs and wants) and the solution in a way that the User could ratify and prioritise them
    (Reference: http://www.opengroup.org/public/arch/p4/bus_scen/bus_scen.htm)
  1. Evolve the Scenarios as the maturity and context of the target User Experience (UE) changes, for example, from:

    • ”Get my document reviewed“ to
    • “Send a document out for multiple review according to a predetermined list, with appropriate response & progress tracking, and have a mechanism for capturing comments which can be exposed for Audit trail purposes” to
    • “Get real-time, decentralized peer review of my Idea, including explicit loops of enhancement and acceptance, with trusted Artefacts generated and validated” to…
  2. Identify the Scenario Patterns in all industry and personal (UE) contexts that are relevant for any business area and/or opportunity to enhance value

  1. Use Scenario-based Requirements Elicitation techniques to automate and formalise the scope of any Client Proposition or general change to UE
  1. Generate the architectures from the Scenarios and Patterns in each specific context:
  • Automation of Logical from (example) functional interdependency of Requirements plus their criticality
  • Exploration of Physical from (example) an analysis of the Solution Space (with risk mitigation etc.)
  • Eliminate the time-consuming manual complexity and unintentional redundancy that can result from a lack of traceability to Scenarios
  1. Ratify the definition and intended UE value enhancement with the Users / Customers in their “language”
  • something that can be universally understood and appreciated, keeps humans “in-the-loop”
    -The result must be VERY EASY for Users to visualize how it fits their Vision, maybe presented with Extended Reality (XR) tools etc.
  1. Apply Solution Value Analysis techniques to make the connection between “abstract” (requirements and logical architecture) and “physical” (solution architecture, product, process)
  • quantify how well (or not) a proposal for “physical” Product, Service, Technology, People, Materials meets each need or want in each context:
  • establish the extent and nature of any acceleration or convergence in activity (technology-centric or otherwise) that can improve the UE and/or make it more widely available
    • “IF (tech x +10% faster) AND (tech x,y converge like this: …) THEN (Application in context z becomes (cost-)effective to improve the value of UE → …)”.

Here is a personal Scenario and UE. I wonder what Sophia would make of it…

“My wife looks after the horses, and one needs a non-emergency visit to the Vet. She makes sure that the trailer is correctly fitted and secured to the towing vehicle according to the legislation for licensing, weight limit and distribution. She runs a safety check for brake lights, tyre pressure, fuel, trailer external and internal lighting etc. She has her charged mobile phone, the horse’s legal and medical documents, and a map or directions in the towing vehicle. She makes the trailer look inviting to the (claustrophobic) animal by lowering the loading ramp and sprinkling it with some bedding to make it seem more familiar. She opens all other doors and windows wide to let in as much light as possible, and puts some hay in a place that is clearly visible to the horse from outside the trailer. She prepares the horse using a head collar with protective head bumper, protective leg wraps and shipping boots. If it is a hot day she puts fly spray on the horse so he doesn’t stomp as much, minimizing the possibilities of injuries. If it is a cold day she rugs him, using the non-fleece variety so he doesn’t stomp as much. She leaves the trailer windows open, but with the screen up so his head is not out of the trailer. She must stay calm throughout the process so that the horse will not pick up on any stress. She loads the horse into the trailer on the driver’s side (to compensate for road camber and provide some “drainage” in the trailer), leading him calmly up the ramp into his individual compartment. When this fails, she arranges for a calm horse to go before him to show him that the trailer is a safe, non-threatening environment, requiring a human companion to return the calm horse to its stable. She secures the horse inside the trailer, closes all doors, latches and locks them, double-checking that no door or window could swing out into a neighbouring traffic lane or panic the horse. The horse is never tied whilst in the trailer to avoid serious injury if the trailer flips. If two horses are being transported, they should never be able to touch noses while unsupervised in a trailer as this could cause a fight, and (of course) it is illegal and dangerous for a person to travel in a horse trailer to supervise them in any case. Once on the road, she avoids motorways and always drives at slightly below the speed limit, preferably with a human companion following in another car behind the trailer to change lanes behind her, leaving plenty of space to move around. On arrival, the horse will require immediate access to food and water, and the trailer will require extensive internal cleaning to prepare for the return journey…”
