From Cyberspace to
Noosphere

Prof. Pierre Lévy

Canada Research Chair on Collective Intelligence

Parma, Minerva Symposium, November 2003

Evolution of Human Language

Ubiquity and interconnection of ideas in
cyberspace. Autonomous capacity of action of
certain species of writing (i.e. software life and
robotics).


Technical self
-
reproduction of the alphabet and images.

telephone, cinema, sound recording, electronic media


Writing becomes universal and digital.

Language get an autonomous technical
memory.

Oral transmission, myths, rites, memory
inscribed in matter.

The scientific basis of the Noosphere will be
a CI

oriented semantic web.


The future CI

semantic web will compute a

of the hypercomplex

Enhancing Harmony


The cultural life is increasingly traveling or
being described through cyberspace.


In
addressing

the digital transactions and
informations according to an universal
ontology, the future semantic web can
become the
Noosphere


The Noosphere will translate the chaotic
digital data flow which conveys the cultural
life into a meaningful whole reflecting
human Collective Intelligence.

Cherishing Diversity

The Collective Intelligence Ontology

is
structured like an open, hypertextual, fractal,
peer to peer (P2P) network of concepts. It
proposes a scientific model of CI.

As an universal ontology, the CIO values and
promotes cultural diversity (memory), cultural
differentiation (exploration) and cultural
evolution (learning).

The Human Cultural Heritage will
be the «

rosebud

» of the Noosphere


Libraries and museums are converging in the
cyberspace on a global scale.


The digital convergence of the human cultural
heritage should be organized by a meta
-
ontology, or
universal ontology, based on a scientific model of CI.


After walking on the moon and deciphering the
human genome, the
Noosphere Project

should be our
next big leading scientific and cultural project.


The people responsible of the human cultural heritage,
should be the first to commit themselves to the
Noosphere Project.

The All
-
inclusive «

Religion

» of Noosphere


One single commandment

:

-

All human cultural heritages are
sacred.


One single Temple of the Noosphere

:

-

The Temple contains all the human
cultural heritages.


One single economic rule

:

-

The sacred cultural heritages of the
human kind are free
common goods.
