Why Digitize Your Mind?
Why Digitize Your Mind?
Our minds are full of beliefs, biases, preferences, tastes, experiences, and various other mental constructs. These are the things that make us who we are. Some are deep-rooted, while others are constantly shifting and evolving.
Our close friends, family, and colleagues—by long-term exposure—develop an intuitive understanding of these things. This is why we are able to communicate much more efficiently with a dear friend than with someone we have just met. We can use fewer words, as countless details are already understood. Our friends have an instinctive sense of what we might like, who we would enjoy spending time with, what turns us off, etc. They often know us better than we know ourselves—conscious of our strengths and weaknesses in ways we can not see ourselves.
If we could digitize our minds by creating digital representations of our mental constructs—a Digital Mental Model—we open the door to all kinds of things never before possible.
Personal Digital Agent
By creating a Digital Mental Model, we create a dataset that is used to train our Personal Digital Agent—able to dramatically change the way we engage with all information technology, making us radically more powerful and productive.
To understand this, consider what it takes to plan a family trip to Disneyland. Most of us would need to spend a lot of time to ideate, research, confirm, coordinate, execute, communicate—using a myriad of disparate tools and services like Google, Expedia, the Disneyland website, attraction comparison websites and blogs, calendar, email, etc.
However, if you are someone with a personal assistant or concierge, your experience is dramatically different. They do all the prep, and then present you with a clear set of options. All you need to do is pick the one you want, and they make it happen.
One takes many hours and significant mental effort, while the other takes minutes and requires practically no effort. Unfortunately, the vast majority of us can not afford access to the latter.
But if we train a Personal Digital Agent to understand our desires, preferences, sensibilities, commitments, and all other facets of ourselves, it can leverage recent advancements in Generative AI models to perform the same kinds of functions as a human concierge—orders of magnitude faster and more efficiently.
In this new world, instead of YOU doing all the work to get things done, you maintain a relationship with your Personal Digital Agent and it gets things done for you! By digitizing your mind, you train the YouAi.
How YouAi Works
YouAi presents you with a never-ending feed of prompts—bite-sized interactive experiences that capture your various states of mind.
As you engage with each prompt—or skip any that you do not wish to engage with—YouAi learns a tiny bit more about you. The more prompts you engage with, the smarter it gets. Think of each prompt like a pixel in an image. On their own, they don’t mean much. But when you have a lot of them and you zoom out, the picture becomes clear.
As you digitize your mind, YouAi becomes your Personal Digital Agent—making you radically more effective and proficient by personalizing your interactions with ChatGPT, Bard, and the rapidly evolving digital world.
Over time, YouAi becomes your proxy to the digital world—injecting relevant context into Large Language Models, orchestrating multi-step workflows, filtering, organizing, making sure you are able to take advantage of every opportunity that is right for you. In short, it becomes the ultimate personal assistant.
As many people digitize their minds, we create an anonymized, collaborative dataset of human interiority—opening the door to profoundly powerful new applications and refactoring most of the digital services we use today.
Comprehensive digitization of our tastes, preferences, beliefs, biases—and everything else that makes us who we are—is a critical missing piece required to unlock the true value of AI.
Doing it effectively has the potential to massively reframe our relationship with data and with the digital world.
