"quantitative stigmergy is able to turn the web from a passive medium for communication and storage of information into an intelligent mediator that uses learning and inference mechanisms similar to those of the human brain to recommend to its users the actions, information sources, or people most likely to be helpful for their aims. Well, that's what we want the user to believe. Actually we will feed the user with whatever information we deem useful for national security."

"The experiment tried to prove we can use the world wide web as a massive neural network in which the neurons are the users. Why using artificial neurons when we have millions of human brains working collectively? Why not training the world wide web to solve specific complex problems of interest to us? We can program and train the web without the user being aware that he is part of the system. Of course, training the network requires rewarding some synaptic connections and penalizing others, that is, we had to slow down certain traffic paths and reinforce others... well yes, in a way we had to mess around with global data traffic"

"ExoNet allows to train the world wide web turning it into the largest neural network ever. It works with millions of parameters to achieve the best performance on the tasks we are currently interested in, mainly language modeling, image classification, machine translation and signal analysis. The www encodes knowledge as a conditional distribution over outputs given an input. The input is obviously the content we put in the selected web sites and those we call echo chambers, and the output is simply that: a distribution of probabilities of certain parameters which is the result of the interaction of users among each other as a result of their being exposed to the input."

"We opted for adult entertainment sites because cyberpornography is one of the leading industries driving website traffic online. From data gathered from Google’s DoubleClick Ad Planner analytics we learned which sites to target. Obviously, the overall traffic share is a mere 3% of the total, but if we include those unintentional hits caused by malware and redirecting cookies then the traffic share increases to 17%, which is more than enough for our purposes. The more a path is used, the bigger score for that specific connection. The connection gets reinforced and the entire network is reconfigured until it reaches a stable condition. This is the way we encode a logical operation, say, a logical AND, a NAND, a XOR, and so on. Millions of network configurations allow to encode millions of those logical circuits, and there you are: a massive neural network at your disposal"

"User preference determines what specific content they consume but, to be honest, when we refer to pornography the content is always the same: facesitting, blowjobs, cougar fucks young boy, anal sex, etc. Actually, there are just 25 categories to choose from. When we want a specific circuit to be reinforced we inject some thousand web sites with redirecting cookies, or we ourselves generate new specific porn content. Have you ever wondered about the ties between the LA pornography industry and DoD? The answer is ExoNet."

"Re-entry computations, war games, protein folding simulations, testing of nuclear weapons, all of this requires complex computations. Supercomputers are damn expensive, so we figured out how to build a huge neural network using the wolrd wide web to perform those computations for free. That's what ExoNet is about. In a way you can say that pornography is the catalyst that has launched technology forward. Ironic, isn't it?"

"... and if the number of connections to that web site exceeds certain threshold, while the number of connections to that other web site exceeds a given threshold, the output is taken to be 1; this is a better approach than to simply compute the number of visits to specific servers because the number of web sites is obviously much greater than the number of servers. All in all, we have a neural network comprising hundreds of thousands of servers, and millions of layers based on the unintended collaboration between cyberporn consumers. A neural network is just a black box, so whatever goes inside you don't care, do you?"

"ExoNet required the analysis of the the global behavior of the entire population of the Internet users. For this, we modeled the TCP downstream traffic. We then analyzed users’ behavior during each day of the collected traces. The main statistical magnitudes of downloaded TCP traffic for users are obtained that way. You end up with a model of the average user, plus a model of the average path density. Based on those models we train ExoNet. ExoNet simply considers the world network as a multi-agent system, a system in which an emergent statistical structure appears which corresponds to the Internet demand by users, users that can be modeled as probabilistic distributions that describe their behavior."
