The 8 Aptiv Types:

Aptivs, comprising eight distinct types, represent a paradigm shift in software functionality, aligning more closely with human needs and intents. These Aptivs are meticulously crafted components that collectively form a holistic approach to software development and execution. Let’s delve into each Aptiv type to understand how they contribute to enhancing software functionality:

  1. MindAptivs: MindAptivs encapsulate cognitive possibilities existing in thought. They represent abstract concepts, hypotheses, and mental constructs, providing a framework for understanding and processing complex ideas.
  2. RecordAptivs: These Aptivs encompass groups of sequences of discrete ideas represented as records. They serve as structured repositories for organizing and storing information, enabling efficient retrieval and manipulation of data.
  3. SignalAptivs: SignalAptivs manifest as forms of continuous ideas in multiple dimensions. They represent adaptive and evolving information streams, such as sensory inputs, communication signals, or data transmissions.
  4. PowerAptivs: PowerAptivs comprise groups of context-specific actions that exert influence and enact change in spacetime. They represent executable commands, directives, or interventions that impact the physical or digital environment.
  5. StoryAptivs: StoryAptivs are collections of events that recreate an experience in spacetime. They serve as narrative structures that convey a sequence of interconnected events, forming cohesive storylines or scenarios.
  6. ExperienceAptivs: ExperienceAptivs encompass collections of scenes containing elements that change with time. They represent adaptive environments, simulations, or interactive experiences that evolve based on user interactions or external stimuli.
  7. BeliefAptivs: BeliefAptivs are ongoing collections of observations, opinions, and predictions. They encapsulate subjective interpretations, beliefs, or expectations, shaping individual perspectives and influencing decision-making processes.
  8. IdeaAptivs: IdeaAptivs represent collections of ideas that form a unique concept. They serve as conceptual frameworks, blueprints, or design principles that guide creative thinking and problem-solving endeavors.

Together, these Aptiv Types form a comprehensive framework for organizing, representing, and processing information in a manner that transcends traditional code-driven software development approaches. By embracing the diversity of human thought and expression, Aptivs pave the way for more flexible, adaptive, and human-centric software systems.

We’ll now turn our attention to PowerAptivs, which empower adaptive actions by utilizing meaning coordinates. Additionally, they enhance source code by encapsulating it within meaning coordinates.

Contrasts: PowerAptivs for Adaptive vs Directive Actions

  • Real-time generated machine instructions vs compiled language
  • Outlined/described-expression vs implemented/fixed-expression
  • Many levels-of-detail/knowledge vs one programming language level of detail/knowledge

PowerAptiv Brands

There are many PowerAptiv Brands that offer services, along with transformation of data to make them work as designed. An example PowerAptiv Brand is our TI994-A Emulator for the venerable 1980 Texas Instrument computer or the MAME arcade emulator for older arcade machines or Dolphin emulator for Nintendo. Each PowerAptiv Brand wraps the source code and connects “Ideas” such as input, screen & audio output, simulating time-steps, and modeling background work for the emulator. It lets us connect players to an emulator or A.I. models for actually learning/playing/testing, or means to generate videos for presentation purposes or many other tasks.

PowerAptiv Actions

Each PowerAptiv that contains source code, belongs to one or more of 64 PowerAptiv Categories, describes a context, such as Signals for importing images or Comms for reading controllers, all the questions that can be answered and trust-tests to verify that a specific PowerAptiv Brand, such as Mozilla-JPEG-Reader vs Facebook-JPEG-Reader, does what it claims to do.

These PowerAptiv Actions generically describe doing something, like adding two numbers or finding a name in a database, and PowerAptiv Brands, which specifically provide the service to do it. PowerAptiv Actions act like an ‘interface’ along with Expression Templates ( think of filling in the blanks with fitting-words/matching terms ), and Trust Tests ( for verification ) as well as the same ownership/access-rights security, compression/encryption, and sharing that is available to any Aptiv.

A common and super-simple example PowerAptiv Action is “Clock”. Clock is for getting the local date and time, which may vary in results by different PowerAptiv Brands. One might use the Windows or POSIX API, another might directly read the BIOS Clock, and others might contact websites or network services, such as many of the famous time-servers, to get the answer. The Trust Tests for all of them check the time compared to other PowerAptiv Brands and sample the clock elapsed time while using a ‘timer-counter’ ( different power than ‘local clock time’ ). Note that UTC/GMT times and various astronomy clock systems can all be used to identify the ‘local user’ time by providing a PowerAptiv Action that answers what timezone the user is in, which may or may not be correct given such a PowerAptiv, and the lookup tables for various timezone settings, given Daylight Savings, etc.

An unusual and complex example PowerAptiv Action is ‘Emulator’, which simulates another computer machine, generally older PCs or arcade machines or embedded devices. This PowerAptiv Action, which is a member of Signal, Update, Sensor, Spatialize, Temporalize, and many other PowerAptiv Categories, handles startup, running, and shutdown of work to emulate another machine and manage the resources it uses in terms of memory, chips, peripherals and buses.

PowerAptiv Categories

Each PowerAptiv Category can have many PowerAptivs. For example, we have over a hundred PowerAptivs that convert signals for media. Many of them are for movie, image and audio formats. PowerAptivs that enable security (e.g., ciphers, obfuscation, certificates, authentication, etc.) are applied as different methods that can all be partitioned for certain bits (non-consecutively) allowing different validation schemes to occur for different parts of source code and data.

This also means that products made this way are not limited to today’s technologies. Adding new PowerAptivs provides an open marketplace for rapidly responding to future needs.

The ability to adaptively weave PowerAptivs is a much more powerful and effective approach than directive software solutions can provide, including APIs, containers, and microservices.
