The Space of Unsolvable Tasks. Formulation of the Problem. or Anti-Tank Hyper-Hedgehogs in N-Dimensional Space.

Authors: Alexandr N. Tetearing
Comments: 33 Pages. (In Russan)

With a narrow specialization of scientists, the development of science leads to the rapid growth of the space of unsolvable tasks, that grows faster than the area of existing scientific knowledge. The practical development of the field of unsolvable tasks is possible only by the forces of universal scientists of the future, who must have a high level of scientific knowledge in several general scientific disciplines.

I wrote about the idea that absolute ethical laws could be found in an axiomatic way in normative ethics, and wrote a self-objection and an improvement against it. Before it, I wrote reviews about the concept of axiom and the major ideas of normative ethics.

Developing an Integrative Framework of Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain for Augmenting Smart Governance

Authors: Venkatesh R, Aayush Kumar, Yadhukrishna S Pai, Projjal Gupta
Comments: 4 pages, 1 Listing, 4 Figures

Government systems are often slow, opaque and prone to corruption. The public benefits system, in general, suffers from slowness and bureaucracy. In this paper, we propose a system that utilizes blockchain and artificial intelligence techniques for governance, which enables the government to function more efficiently and with more transparency, thus increasing the level of trust the people have in their government and in democracy. Public Distributed-Ledger Ethereum (MainNet) is the back-bone of this proposed system. SHA-256 of Elliptic-Curve cryptography generates a Public-Private keypair. Each transaction is validated by P2SH and the consensus is achieved through Proof-of-Work Algorithm. A smart contract encodes the algorithm and enforces constraints on users activity. Artificial Intelligence is used to analyze the data wherever necessary and the output of the network is used as a trigger for activating the smart contract, which can be connected via IoT services and automation devices. This can be used for making government contracts more transparent. Some use cases are automatic payments based on achieved deadlines and allowing public consensus on government policies.Other applications include a better functioning public benefits system that allows the government to directly provide the public with incentives rather than relying on middlemen. Decentralization via blockchain is a complete end-to-end solution for democratizing the current systems.

A Chemical Curse or Blessing? A Case of Kenya

Authors: Maingi, Joyce Wanjiru., Ngenya, Watson Atsiambo
Comments: 5 Pages.

Misuse and overuse of chemicals is one of the most complex issues facing the contemporary Kenyan society. Agrochemicals in particular pose as a great risk to the population when not used according to their ascribed directives. At times, chemicals are misused unintentionally and casually due to ignorance and this may have dire consequences on one’s health or that of the environment. While some make personal choices on how to use certain chemicals, some just happen to be victims of circumstances when other persons within our sphere of influence have made poor choices, and we all end up suffering the consequences.
