Radish is a collaborative initiative to develop an AI-driven, Radical Collective Intelligence platform that, as the etymology of the word “radical” indicates, gets to the root of things.

Our initial goal is to prototype a system to draw upon the best ideas across multiple solution pathways in creating synergetic processes for solution design and implementation at global scale.

We invite members to join our Beta Community and participate in the project’s development. We are also open to partnerships with other groups who share this vision of holistic problem-solving via new levels of collective intelligence.

Radish is a Response to Our Human Situation

Our human-shaped world – Earth in the Anthropocene Era – is in the midst of an unprecedented systems breakdown and an emerging scenario of mass extinction.  If we as a species do not take action, unprecedented action, and soon – our human family and countless other species will suffer untold consequences. This is what the vital collective intelligence of our global scientific community is telling us. There is no question about it.

So we need put aside distractions to get to the root of things – by deepening our understanding of the problems we face and developing the solutions needed to solve them. Then we must reach across barriers and boundaries to engage our collective actions in a wholly new context: bringing required expertise and talents from innumerable specialized fields out of their silos and into high level collaborations to design and scale solutions.

The application of “Radical Collective Intelligence,” leveraging the infinite resources of human intelligence with the active support of AI as the “super-processor” of our collective intelligence – combined with big data – will pave the way for global holistic modeling and problem-solution mapping on a whole new level. Only then can we prioritize and implement the required solutions through massive multidisciplinary, cross-industry, transnational collaborations.

First Steps

The Radish project is gathering a community of solutionaries in its co-creation. The initial Radish.org site provides basic information on the project. The Conversation Space platform for searchable conversations is in development. Along with the growing variety of topics covered in the Radish Conversation Space, we will also be developing the Radish venture itself in conversation – and interaction with – our Beta Member Community.
