Adaptive systems


Complexity Science: Foundations for Adaptive Automation in Businesses

Adaptive automation implies dealing with complex adaptive systems and developing operational solutions that can be managed by everyone to expand businesses and save energy.

Complexity SciencesIt requires using predictors to deal with the adaptive aspects of the reality that is being managed. The more adaptive a system is, the less energy it consumes to generate a predefined value.

This requires using a complexity science approach to define the rules that regulate adaptiveness and allow designing the architecture of the system. Complexity science can be defined as the scientific approach to complex adaptive systems.

There are three main organizations in the world that are fully focused on complexity science and its application in the field of human complex adaptive systems.

We strongly recommend comparing their approaches to choose the one that is functional to introduce adaptive automation. We suggest beginning by accessing their institutional page to apprehend the concept of adaptiveness they manage:

What is the Unicist Logical Approach to Complexity Sciences?

The unicist logical approach manages the adaptive aspects of business as unified fields based on the knowledge of their ontogenetic maps.

Unicist Active Business Library

Unicist Active Business Library

The knowledge of the ontogenetic map of a business, its market and the context allowed managing the fundamentals that define the possibilities of business actions.

The future scenario building became possible based on the knowledge of the ontology of evolution and the ontogenetic maps of a business and its restricted and wide contexts.

This knowledge allowed defining synergic maximal strategies, to expand beyond the boundaries of a business, and minimum strategies to work within them.

Adaptive business processes became reliable based on the use of ontology based business objects. The use of objects upgraded the role of human work in business.

The integration of fundamental analysis and technical analysis allowed building reliable business knowledge, transforming uncertainty into risk and integrating the knowledge of the possibilities of success with its probabilities.

All the solutions, business objects, technologies and knowledge provided by The Unicist Research Institute are based on the unicist logical approach and generate significant energy saving effects.

How do Business Viruses Work? – The case of the Virus Type A

Viruses are installed in organizations when the personal goals of their members prevail over the goals of the group in the case of entrepreneurs and of the mission and vision of institutions.

RNA virusViruses can be cured or palliated. When they are cured they strengthen the company and the immune system of the company.

When they are palliated but not cured they generate a chronic syndrome in the company.

Chronic syndromes of companies are considered as characteristics by butterfly companies and by those members of institutions that despite the fact that they are working in such institutions, they do not “belong” to them.

We have identified two different types of viruses in companies: Business Virus Type “A” and Business Virus Type “B”.

The virus type “A” is the virus in which the purpose of an activity is substituted by the achievement of personal benefits for the participant.

The virus type “B” is the virus in which the energy conservation function of the activity is substituted by the personal goals of a participant.

An example: The Structure of Object Driven Management

Object Driven Management implies managing the integration of the hardware, software and peopleware of a company.

This implies that the peopleware is the purpose of management. The active function is exerted by the software and the energy conservation function is given by the available hardware. Unicist Business Objects are part of the hardware.

The operational perceivable aspects are the existence of hardware and software. Peopleware is not evident, it implies intentions that cannot be observable and can only be measured by results.

As biological viruses need to be accepted by the body, business viruses need to be accepted by the organization. Therefore, in order to be accepted, business viruses need to show the same observable aspects that are already within the organization. In this case viruses necessarily show the existence of the hardware and the software of the company.

About Business Virus Type “A”

It is the virus that substitutes the purpose of a concept by a personal benefit from it.

Unicist Business Virus Type A

In the case of Object Driven Management, Virus “A” is shown as follows:

This generates the inexistence of the integration between software and hardware.

This produces anarchy or inaction within the organization and the need of an authoritarian leader to manage the conflicts produced.

This lowers productivity, quality and reliability and therefore the value generation is diminished.

Made in Germany: an example to understand brand power

The research on brands as semiotic objects developed at The Unicist Research Institute, allowed discovering the ontogenetic maps of brands and their power. This expanded the possibilities of exerting influence on an environment when necessary, which requires understanding the prices that need to be paid.

Brand Power“Made in Germany” is an example for brand power. It has to be considered as an “iconic symbol” that defines the central aspects of the national identity of the country. It is based on the attributes that are implicit in the collective intelligence of a society and can be considered as an iconic symbol of the culture it represents.

The objective of a brand is to influence the environment to establish an essential credibility of a promise of value. Therefore the power of a brand defines which level of value promises can be sustained in which context.

It has to be considered that a brand establishes the context for relationships. Therefore brands have to work as a negotiating object in order to fulfill their purpose. This means that they have to establish the role of the entity that is influencing the environment but also the power this role has.

That is why brands have homologous elements of negotiation processes: the construction power and the destruction power. Powerful brands generate a love-hate relationship because people “fear” the destruction power while they “love” their construction power.

What needs to be understood is that the construction power makes brands work as catalysts and their non-exerted destruction power is what works as an entropy inhibitor to sustain the construction power.

The apparent paradox is that the destruction power needs to be present in order to overcome third parties but cannot be used. If the destruction power is used, then the brand loses power and might be harmed or destroyed.

Therefore the destruction power needs to be in the mind of the perceivers of brands but the action has to be driven by construction power.

Social influence is based on the influence of the construction power which is given by the attributes a brand has that correspond to the true value promise it includes.

The unicist theory expanded the boundaries of sciences

Unicist Complexity ResearchThe unicist theory expanded the frontiers of sciences making the scientific approach to complex adaptive systems possible without needing to use arbitrary palliatives to transform complex systems into systemic systems in order to be able to research them.

Paradoxically this is a breakthrough and a back to basics. On the one hand it is a breakthrough because it changed the paradigms of scientific research. On the other hand it is a back to basics because it drives sciences to deal with the nature of reality.

The unicist logical approach opened the possibilities of managing complexity sciences using a pragmatic, structured and functionalist approach:
https://www.unicist-school.org/complexity-sciences/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/standard_unicist_approach_en.pdf

The unicist approach to complexity is based on the research of the unicist ontological structure of a complex adaptive system which regulates its evolution. This is based on emulating the structure of the unicist ontogenetic intelligence of nature considering that every functional aspect of reality has a unique unicist ontological structure.
www.unicist.org/deb_ute.php

The approach to ontological structures of reality requires going beyond the dualistic thinking approach and being able to use the double dialectical logic to approach complex adaptive systems.
www.unicist.net/clipboard/

The research in complexity science needs to have its own format for its presentation that has a structural difference with the papers for systemic sciences (abstract, introduction, materials and methods, discussion, literature). It has to be considered that:

1) A complex system has open boundaries which implies that the experiences cannot be reproduced they can only be emulated in homologous fields.

2) Having open boundaries there is no possibility of building artificial experiences to research a complex adaptive system.

3) As it has open boundaries it cannot be observed. The observers are part of the system. This implies that a peer review can only be made based on the use of destructive tests in homologous fields.

4) The conditions of the environment change, (No one can bathe twice in the same river – Heraclitus) which means that an apparently same experience might produce different results.

5) The elements of a complex adaptive system are integrated by the conjunction “and” with multiple bi-univocal relationships. Therefore there are no univocal cause-effect relationships; this implies that the only valid measurable aspects are the results obtained.

6) Predictions of results and measurement of the achievements are the way the validity of the knowledge of the structure of a complex adaptive system is confirmed.

7) The discussions with other opinions are meaningless because complex adaptive systems have open boundaries and only its application allows confirming the knowledge obtained.

8) Multiple real applications in different homologous and analogous fields, preceded by a prediction of the results that will be obtained, need to be done to confirm the knowledge of a complex adaptive system.

9) The method of the research is in the application itself which has to correspond to the field of activity of the complex adaptive system.

The research work

As researchers are part of any complex adaptive system that is being researched, a unicist reflection process is needed to develop the process. This implies a full involvement of the researcher in the system following an action-reflection-action process to find the unicist ontological structure that regulates the evolution of the complex adaptive system.

The presentation of the knowledge of complex adaptive systems includes two different levels of information:

a) The abstract: which includes the discoveries of the unicist ontological structures and the ontogenetic maps written in unicist standard language

b) The research process: which describes the research process

The basic steps of the research process are:

1) Develop the hypothetical structure of the ontology.

2) Analyze the ontology and divide it into sub-ontologies following the laws of complementation and supplementation (only when necessary and possible).

3) Define observable results that need to be considered to validate the ontology.

4) Define the application fields of the ontology to validate its functionality.

5) Develop the applications beginning with destructive and non-destructive pilot tests to forecast reality.

6) Develop at least five experiences in the application field differing completely one from the other.

7) Develop forecasts of at least three periods with full certainty.

8) Restart the research process every time a deviation occurs.

Conclusion

It becomes evident that the field of researching complex adaptive systems is for doers, who assumed the responsibility for results and have the necessary inner freedom to emulate in mind adaptive systems that are in motion. The use of the knowledge does not require knowing how it was produced.

The Unicist Standard for Organizational Design

Organizational EffectivenessOrganizations are typical adaptive systems. If they were not, they could not survive.

The Unicist Standard for an organizational process requires having found the real characteristics of the external and internal environment in order to develop such process based on reality and not on a hypothetical reality.

Every design must include the integration of efficacy and efficiency in order to achieve the effectiveness that is required by the environment. If the organization has decided to introduce continuous improvement, it is necessary to include business objects to minimize the change of any improvement.

The steps for an organizational design are the following:

  1. Japanese Park – A pilot test to confirm the starting point.
  2. Definition of Responsibilities  – To allow dealing with the organization as an adaptive system.
  3. Clarification of the Methodology – Defining the logical approach to deal with the processes.
  4. Definition of the final objective – Confirming the “use value” of the organizational process (Pilot tests).
  5. Definition of the Methods – Definition of the methods to be followed. These methods are derived from the methodologies of step 3.
  6. Evaluation & Adjustment of Costs.
  7. Validating the “use value” of the organizational process in action (Pilot tests).

The Dualistic Approach transforms Aesthetics into Beauty

Unicist aesthetics defines the core aspect of any individual who wants to influence the environment. It is the central value of the critical mass of any influential action.

The driver of aesthetics is the capacity to complete the unsatisfied needs of someone or the environment.

The unicist double dialectical approach to aesthetics allows establishing stable perceptions integrating the desires of the counterparts with the necessary intrinsic harmony to complete their demands.

The dualistic approach transforms aesthetics into beauty, managing, on the one hand, the desires of the counterpart and, on the other hand, transforming harmony into conventional rules in order to be acceptable.

The dualistic approach to aesthetics tends to seduce clients with “empty” promises and apparent reliability. It tends to generate desires that are followed by disappointments.

The Unicist Approach to Manage Business Expansion

Diagnoses, strategies and architecture to expand businesses require the integration of fundamental and technical-analytical knowledge. This is what the unicist approach made possible.

But to access the unicist approach to businesses it is necessary to be able to use double dialectical thinking (unicist thinking) at a personal level.

Therefore it is obvious that the precondition to use the unicist approach is the understanding of its foundations which requires using unicist thinking.

Unicist thinking empowers the adaptive approach to reality and the consequence of its use is the expansion of the level of consciousness of the user which allows making a strategic approach to reality.

Access a synthesis on the “Discovery of the Unicist Thinking – The double dialectical thinking” that is available at the Scientific Dissemination Program. You will find there other syntheses that might be of your interest: https://www.unicist-school.org/complexity-sciences/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/unicist_thinking.pdf

Without the use of unicist thinking only survival, non-influential strategies or anti-strategies are possible.

Unicist Discoveries: Ambiguous Language is the Key to Growth

Dealing with the nature of businesses requires using ambiguous language to apprehend their implicit concepts and to dialogue with the market and with people.

This book will change your perception of communication allowing you to know when individuals are “dialoguing” and when they are “monologuing”.

Dialoguing requires ambiguous messages and Monologuing is based on operational messages. This sounds paradoxical for the majority of the people.

Dialogues drive towards evolution and Monologues drive towards involution.

The decision to empower the use of ambiguous (synthetic) language is personal. The benefit is high and so is the price to pay to expand the use of one’s language. It is a step by step process.

The end of the war between Power, Religion and Science?

There is a natural cold war between Power, Religion and Science. Power sustains authority, Religion sustains the Truth and Science unveils reality.

The solution of this essential conflict has been the alliances that were and are being established usually between two of the members of the triad at expense of the third one.

The CERN Experiment, developing the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a phenomenal alliance of the three aspects (Power, Religion and Science) and is giving birth, perhaps, to a new integrated approach to complex realities.

We strongly recommend accessing a short information on the CERN Experiment at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ2q8WUire0

It could be a new starting point in human relations. It might implicate the real end of the “Galileo’s Era”.
