Peopleware drives process effectiveness

The need for the adaptive automation implicit in the 4th Industrial Revolution required an R&D process to develop peopleware as the integrator of hardware and software.. The process of finding the functionalist principle of peopleware was developed at The Unicist Research Institute and demanded 5 years of applications.

Peopleware provides the necessary information to transform business architectures into operational business models. Peopleware is defined by the structure of objects that individuals have in their minds which define the models they use when dealing with hardware and software at work. The definition of peopleware is necessary in the 4th Industrial Revolution to manage adaptability.

Peopleware is what allows integrating hardware and software providing the true driver of the business model. It is necessary to understand the organizational equilibrium laws, the natural organization and the object driven business model to manage peopleware.

Peopleware drives process effectiveness

When peopleware has been defined, an adequate aesthetic use of software with a solid hardware will make business processes operational.

Peopleware is perhaps the most significant development to provide business operational solutions to companies. It allows transforming administrative systems into adaptive systems to upgrade work processes when managing businesses as unified fields.

Peopleware provides the utility to operational business models allowing software to be user-friendly (aesthetic for the user) and the functionality of hardware to become solid.

Peopleware is business architecture applied to work process design. Therefore, it is for people who have a sound knowledge of the business that is being modeled.

Unicist AI to Build Cobots

Cobots are collaborative robots that are based on human-robot interaction to complement human actions. In business, there are two possible uses:

  1. As part of a backward integration, to sustain decision processes.
  2. As part of a forward integration, to transform decisions into actions.

The installation of binary actions in cobots requires using unicist AI to manage the adaptability and synchronicity. Unicist AI is based on the unicist logic that was developed emulating the intelligence that underlies nature and human intelligence.

Unicist AI is based on the rules of the unicist logic that deals with the functionality of things. It is a fundamentals-based AI that allows managing the functionality of processes of any kind and building intelligent systems and cobots. When necessary, these cobots are installed in mobile applications.

Fundamentals based AI provides the meaning of data, its integration with data-based AI allows managing processes using adaptive automation.

Fundamentals-based AI uses indicators and predictors both to monitor the functionality of processes and as an input to the inference engine.

Unicist AI: Integrating Analogical and Homological Approaches

The goal of human conscious intelligence is to deal with the root causes of things to adapt to the environment. Conscious intelligence has two possible approaches: an analogical approach or a homological approach.

The Analogical Approach

The analogical approach to reality deals with the observable facts and actions that are the consequences of the underlying concepts and fundamentals that define the root causes of their functionality.

The artificial intelligence approaches that deal with observable facts and actions can only learn empirical knowledge and make analogical decisions.

This is an emulation of the human reactive intelligence approach that is functional when the goal is to develop operational reactions.

The Homological Approach

The unicist artificial intelligence approach is needed to manage homologies when the goal is to influence complex adaptive environments. Two entities are homologous when they share the underlying concept.

This homological approach deals with the concepts of things, which define the ontogenetic maps of the unified fields and establish the rules of their dynamics and evolution. The unicist homological approach includes the analogical approach but not vice versa.

The unicist artificial intelligence is based on using a homological approach that allows defining the necessary actions to influence a complex adaptive environment and measure the consequences of these actions to learn from them.

The UAI approach includes both learning and deciding actions based on a homological approach that deals with the essential concepts of functions that have been transformed into operational solutions. The feedback from the environment defines the functionality of actions or drives the learning of the system until the results become functional.

The Use of Intelligent Business Cobots

Unicist Business Cobots are collaborative robots that manage the functionality of business processes. The use of concepts and fundamentals allowed managing the functionality of business processes and enabled the development of collaborative robots to provide the resources -including functional knowledge- that are needed to manage business processes.

Cobots interact with people to ensure the functionality and the adaptive automation of processes.

The functionality of business cobots manages, on the one hand, the efficacy of processes using logical rules or artificial intelligence and, on the other hand, the efficiency of the operation to ensure the achievement of their purpose.

In business, there are two possible uses:

  1. As part of a backward integration, to sustain decision processes.
  2. As part of a forward integration, to transform decisions into automated actions.

The business applications of Cobots became possible due to the development of the fundamentals-based AI and the binary actions that ensure the generation of results.

Cobots are not based on empirical rules; they use functional rules to build empirical solutions.

Unicist AI is fundamentals-based

Unicist AI became possible due to the functionalist approach to decision processes. It is a fundamentals-based intelligence that emulates the reasoning process of human intelligence and includes two functions to make this possible:

The learning function and the decision function. The subjective bias of data-based AI is solved using this fundamentals-based AI.

Unicist AI allows developing different types of functionalities according to what is needed. 

There are basically 4 types of functions, which are homologous to human decision-making processes, that are being emulated: the descriptive function, the diagnosing function, the predictive function, and the prescriptive function.

Simplifying the Design of Adaptive Business Processes

The Unicist Functional Designers were developed to ensure the functionality of business processes. The Unicist Functional Designers are a solution factory to design actions in adaptive environments. They are based on a unicist ontological approach that allows managing the functionality and operation of adaptive systems.

The solutions include the use of unicist AI and binary actions. The unicist AI is a fundamentals-based AI that allows managing the functionality of processes. This functionality is transformed into results through the use of binary actions, which are two synchronized actions that aim at the same purpose.

The concept of the Unicist Functional Designer (UFD) applied to business has been used for more than 30 years by developing solutions based on the ontogenetic maps of the business functions to design the processes, actions and business objects that allow producing the results that have been defined as being possible to be achieved.

Business management requires using a strategic approach that allows designing them, defining their functional actions, and monitoring their evolution.

The Unicist Functional Designer is based on the use of the ontogenetic maps that define the functionality of adaptive entities whatever their kind. The input to the system is the conceptual structure of the functionality of an entity and the output includes the definition of the conceptual design, the definition of the binary actions and their synchronicity, the design of business objects and the operational solution.

Unicist Business Cobots use Binary Actions

The new stage of business processes introduced by the 4th Industrial Revolution includes the use of binary actions that include the use of business objects and catalysts to be adaptive, foster growth and increase profitability. Business cobots are the vehicle for this new way of simplifying processes.

Binary actions are two synchronized actions that expand businesses while they ensure their results. They were developed to manage the evolution of adaptive environments by managing actions to install maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure results. Any adaptive system and environment (living being or artificial construction) is driven by binary actions.

Some examples will help to grasp the idea:

  1. The active function and the energy conservation function of the intelligence of a tree drive its growth and survival.
  2. Lift and propulsion make airplanes take-off and fly.
  3. The cover and the back cover define the functionality of the packaging of a book.
  4. The music and the lyrics of a song define its aesthetics.

Universally known examples of binary actions are:

  • Efficacy + Efficiency = Effectiveness
  • Empathy + Sympathy = Personal influence
  • Participation + Power = Leadership
  • Marketing + Sales = New customers
  • Productivity + Quality = Value generation

The use of binary actions to manage adaptive environments is a must.

Binary actions are specific actions focused to generate a predefined result. Therefore, business cobots are also specific solutions that are built using unicist functional design.

Profit from Unicist AI to manage e-commerce

Unicist AI is based on managing behavior based on the knowledge of the underlying fundamentals. This fundamentals-based AI manages the root-causes of behavior using predictors and indicators based on the conceptual knowledge of the processes involved.

The integration of the use of data-based AI after there have been established clusters of people who have homologous conceptual approaches maximizes results by approaching different universes with complementary messages to increase sales.

Data-based AI is functional in systemic environments but tends to generate biased responses when it is applied to complex adaptive environments. To avoid biases, data-based AI needs to be complemented when dealing with complex adaptive environments that are feedback dependent, have open boundaries and in which there is a consequent objective impossibility of existence of observers.

Complex adaptive systems are composed by elements that have biunivocal relationships and are integrated by conjunctions without the existence of exclusive disjunctions.

Increasing Sales using Data-based AI and Fundamentals-based AI

This approach is managed using the unicist logic that allows dealing with adaptive environments. The use in e-commerce is the application where this technology generates notorious increases of effectiveness.

It has to be considered that data-based AI is managed using inductive and deductive approaches without considering the abductive approach that allows dealing with systems that have open boundaries.

Therefore, the use of data-based AI in complex adaptive environments might generate biased responses because in these environments small changes may produce significant consequences (the butterfly effect) and apparently big changes may produce no consequences.

It integrates Data-based AI with Fundamentals-based AI to generate reliable knowledge for decision making, where the subjective biases and the biases resulting from the adaptive processes of the environments have been eliminated or minimized.

The Unicist Functionalist Approach: The functionalist approach is based on the use of binary actions that are composed by two synchronized actions where the first one opens possibilities and the second one ensures results. The use of univocal actions only works in fully controlled processes or where the environment provides the second action that sustains it. Therefore, the use of binary actions is not optional when it is needed to ensure the generation of results. www.unicist.org


Contingency Rooms use Unicist Extreme Design

The Unicist Extreme Design (UXD) Methodology was developed to design solutions in adaptive environments. Adaptive systems have open boundaries, that require a conceptual approach to manage their fundamentals. It is a “Back2Back” methodology to solve problems.

The UXD methodology was created to develop adaptive systems or solutions for problems. It is based the use of the conceptual structure that describes the functionality of the adaptive system, which allows designing the actions (UBAs) that ensure the functionality of the solution.

Unicist Binary Actions (UBAs) are two synchronized actions that need to be developed in adaptive environments to ensure the achievement of results. Generally, they are the actions that build the maximal strategy and actions that build the minimum strategy.

These UBAs have to pass three tests to be confirmed. These tests are the input for the reflection process that allows redesigning the solutions until they work.

Unicist Binary Actions to Manage Adaptive Systems

Influencing adaptive environments requires the development of simultaneous binary actions (UBAs) to influence each adaptive function of the environment.

It requires defining the ontogenetic maps of the functions that are involved, their maximal and minimum strategies, and developing the consequent UBAs to ensure the generation of results.

The adaptive behavior of social and institutional environments is homologous to the behavior of nature.

Their ontogenetic maps have a triadic structure that requires going beyond dualistic thinking using the unicist logic and developing UBAs.

The use of Cobots to manage Projects

Cobots are collaborative robots to interact with human work. Cobots, are based on the use of unicist logical rules to upgrade the functionality of Project Management, simplifying processes and ensuring the fulfillment. The use of automation integrates the project management processes and ensures the transparency and reliability of the processes.

The purpose of Cobots is to be able to generate client centered processes that ensure results by being customer oriented through the assurance of added value. This purpose is achieved through the support of both the efficacy of work processes and their efficiency.

The wide context that establishes the framework of cobots is the new stage introduced by the 4th industrial revolution, which fosters the adaptability of business processes. While the 3rd industrial revolution introduced robots, the 4IR introduced adaptive automation sustained by the IoT.

The 4IR was transformed into actions by the customer orientation of businesses, which requires entering businesses from the point of view of the needs of customers.

This customer orientation implies knowing the structural, urgent and latent needs of customers and requires managing each segment as a universe to ensure customer value and generate bestsellers that fulfill the needs of both the customers and the company.

Diego Belohlavek is coordinating the R&D groups that deal with the development of Cobots.

Unicist Prescriptive Diagnostics Cobot

A clinic to develop the prescriptive diagnosis of an IT company was developed by Diego Belohlavek using the unicist diagnostics cobot. This activity allowed developing a business solution including the necessary destructive tests.

The business diagnostics cobots sustain decisions. They develop diagnoses based on assessing the functionality of business functions and processes based on the results that are produced. They evaluate the functionality of the processes and objects included in business functions.

These cobots are prescriptive diagnostics cobots that provide binary actions to manage the problems that are being diagnosed. They include the pilot tests that need to be done to confirm the functionality. 

These cobots provide the operational binary actions that are needed to solve problems based on the rules that categorize such problems, which are integrated with rules that manage the avoidance of negative consequences. They include the pilot tests that need to be done to confirm the functionality of the solutions.
