David C. Hawkins—Reverse Engineering And Discovery CSI™
White Rock, B.C., Canada
“Artificial Intelligence (AI) pioneer David Hawkins—inventor of the Deductive Computing Machine and the Object-Oriented Fractal Paintbrush—has launched and managed this website over the last several years to document—via third-party talk show hosts and podcasts—how to break up the world’s fake-news cycles and start a journey of discovery that “We the People” we should be making together.”

Experience and Projects:
Abel Danger—From 2006 to 2018, Hawkins and Marine Corps veteran Field McConnell sponsored a web-based service for Cloud Centric CSI to help citizens reverse engineer the signature of patented weapons or weaponized patents at crime sites and solve murder mysteries of centuries past.
From 2012 to the present, Hawkins has been operating Blending Bene and Farmers MarkIT web sites to help users to optimize their diets with ‘Nutritionists Just In Time’ and develop ‘Chefs With Lattitude’ apps to build customized recipes based on seasonal supplies in their local and regional food chain.
Hawkins launched the ‘Citizens Association of Forensic Economists’ in British Columbia in 2003 as a coffee-shop based asset tracking network to monitor impact of government programs on public debt, personal assets and individual rights; to expose ‘off-book’ debt, combat crime and fraud and optimize the use of assets in water, energy, transport, shelter, defence, food, forestry and fisheries industries.
I-BAT – Hawkins developed Independent-Benchmark Asset Tracking as a simulation tool to help citizens scope political corruption and visualize waste or fraud by all orders of government. I-BAT tracks the source and application of money, energy, weight of material and task-talent-time assets through trusts and partnerships which may be used to hide debt, evade taxes, enrich insiders and launder money.
EAZEway – Hawkins designed the Elevated Adaptable Zero-Emission trackway as a regional transportation, real-estate and communication network using a proprietary plug-and-play monorail with “cool” energy from renewable power and proven technologies and business models. www.eazeway.org
In 1994/5, Hawkins prototyped “I-BAT” spreadsheets to help lay voters track waste or fraudulent conversion of public assets across regional communities and watersheds. I-BAT allows all orders of online government (e.g. e-MPs, e-MLAs) to benchmark and optimize flow of task-talent-time, financial, energy and material assets in real time. Hawkins also developed I-BAT “Gross Debt/Net Income” indicators to help politicians optimize community, business and household sustainability.
From 1992, Hawkins marketed geo-science and engineering data-management technologies to the petroleum exploration and production (E&P) industry.
To 1992, as Oilfield Systems’ Chairman and CEO, Hawkins played a key role in raising C$4 million in start-up equity and sale of preproduction software licenses to industry and government clients. Oilfield Systems built the industry’s leading E&P data-management software for geoscience and engineering data exchange, validation of interpretations and intuitive user interfaces.
In 1989, Hawkins managed partnerships to develop ‘smart’ data networks for oil and gas companies with his own company Oilfield Systems and Occidental Petroleum, Elf, Deminex, Bow Valley, Talisman Energy, Clyde Petroleum and the U.K. Department of Energy.
Deductive Computing Machine and the Object-Oriented Fractal Paintbrush—In the 1980s, Hawkins invented, designed and built ‘virtual-reality’ prototypes to emulate domain experts by learning, understanding, effect propagation, conflict resolution and justification. The DCM and OOFP generate virtual prototypes to match real-world data and maximise probability of prototype being “true”.
In 1984 Hawkins founded Oilfield Systems Limited (UK) and two years later designed and built HESPER, as a working prototype for the world’s first ‘virtual-reality’ deductive computing machine. HESPER was runner-up for the British Computer Society’s 1988 gold medal award.
To 1982, Hawkins pioneered “real-world” computer reasoning as coordinator of artificial intelligence and geoscience for Schlumberger-Doll Research, Connecticut, USA.
In 1981, Hawkins wrote “An Analysis of Expert Thinking”—published in the International Journal of Man-Machine Studies in 1983—where he was the first researcher to define the dangers and possibilities of computer learning, understanding, effect propagation, conflict resolution and justification.
To 1980, Hawkins worked in Europe, Australasia, Middle East, Africa and North America, with Schlumberger, the world’s leading oil-industry data management company. He served as executive-in-charge of major customer-support bases in Nigeria, UK Land and North Sea and the Republic of Ireland. Based in France, Hawkins was responsible for Schlumberger’s eastern hemisphere service quality and liaised with production engineering and design engineers in Paris and Houston. Hawkins introduced and troubleshot advanced mechanical engineering and data technologies used in the company’s worldwide business. An emergency-response team leader, Hawkins attended oil-well blow outs in the United Arab Emirates, Iran and Brunei.
To 1967, Hawkins worked for five years as a university apprentice with the British public power utility, the Central Electricity Generating Board where he was trained as a fitter, linesman, boiler-plant operator and machinist prior to the privatization of the utility.
A 1951 insight into the strange (?) mind of David Hawkins. When he was about 8 years old, David’s mother asked him why, when he walked back from his village school at Chartham near Canterbury, Kent, his trouser pockets would get so dirty. David explained that he was concerned that the pebbles in the ditches didn’t get to see the sun rise or set. He described how he would climb in the ditch, stuff his pockets with the pebbles, walk off the road and up a hill, brush the dirt off the pebbles, place them side by side along branches of trees with a good view of the sun going up or going down and leave the scene content in the knowledge of a good deed done to or for the pebbles. David’s mother understood!
