YouTube has indeed grown useful; if you ignore the fluff around comments, share/liking/subscribing etc by using specific browser extensions, it is indeed a powerful platform to distribute content. The general refrain, of course, is to avoid the “entertainment section”. I am maintaining specific channels for YouTube creators (by automating content delivery) though.
I will now intersperse the ideas around Indian Civilisational Ethos (and Indian system of science) going forward. The reason behind this is to provide a wider dissemination around these specific ideas about the importance of “self” and the “intertwining of the environment” in the Indian ethos, but also provide a learning path towards the universal application of Indian philosophy systems to AI/Healthcare. There has been sparse literature around these conceptual ideas, and the ones I found have been of terrible quality. I did come across some books, but it requires careful calibration of the published literature as the bridge between “historical narratives” and the “modern times”.
I did try to explore an opportunity in a University, but soon realised the futility of their approach. A western construct of “materialism” fails to explore the “individual” as we understand in India, and remains the source of much muck-raking around “exploitation”. While a middle of the road approaches around “data-sharing” have been proposed in some EU journals/papers, those still remain heavily tilted around data “gatherers”. I am still wrapping my head around these issues and exploring these in detail.
As a preliminary approach, I am including the YouTube commentary from Prof Subash Kak (as a history revisionist) and has tremendous ideas to share with the world. I will explore these ideas in greater detail in future posts interspersed with AI/Policy, and of course, my first love – Radiation Oncology.
Technically, I can rip off the audio files (on Telegram bots) and upload them; but that will constitute “copy-right” offences. Even though I believe in the “counter-culture” of “copy-left”, all ideas are free. A legal protection framework is required if you plan to commercialise your “idea”. Yet, the start-up ecosystem has seen numerous “me-too” copycats trying to mimic one “idea” that broke through the mould.
