Of Model and Its Enemy

"Disruptor factor. That which intentionally disrupts the efficacy of a computational model.

Our intent is to calibrate the impact of such activity to gain a better understanding of how to mitigate the damage caused. Its about real-time adaptation to anticipated risk of disruption. Open systems have the capacity to lower vulnerability by overwhelming the nefarious agenda with a volume of adaptive individuals that are tightly coupled.

"No questions asked, loyalty, obedience and the like are ineffective in the face of the empowered and well-intentioned. The working title is KOOL (spelling is correct, it is not an acronym) reflecting the intent to deceive and its natural reaction.

Organic in this context is simply the highly evolved organizational principles of living entities. Deception has very limited application in a highly competitive intellectual environment. One example, the cuttlefish. It disguises itself so as to not be visible to predators. A very intelligent invertebrate that eats its own.

Conversely, as a defensive strategy for the dominant it can be useful, at least temporarily.

"''Far from equilibrium' empowers the complementary field. Anticipating such is a large part of team's mission. Accordingly, we will compile an enumeration of model sabotage disruption tactics.

"It is particularly interesting to note that a deceptive meme, 'the other side does it' uses a cloaking tactic that forces researchers to implicitly endorse model disruption. To access the agenda, one must register. In the process, disclosing an email address to be spammed and passed along to other selected spammers."
