Accelerating Future

Reductionism is an amazingly powerful strategy for leveraging the work of scientists and for disseminating the results in the form of re-usable models of structure and causality. But for some of the "remaining hard problem domains" such as Life (biology, psychology, ecology, etc), the World (world modeling, economies, sociology), Intelligence (understanding the brain, intelligence, and creating Artificial General Intelligences - AGI) and the problem of determining the semantics of language (e.g. text) Reductionism has failed. I claim that reductionist models cannot be created in these domains (which have been named "Bizarre Domains") and that we must use Model Free (Holistic) Methods for these domains. This has important implications for AGI research strategies.
