    Let’s Decide the Future of the Internet Before It’s Decided for Us

    The features of the Internet that we really want to make sure persist, and I don’t count on inertia to do the job here, but these features include the fact that when we’re surfing the web that we’re actually visiting lots of different places. The web of a 1998, and sort of through the past ten years or so, has been one where there’s lots of baskets with eggs all over the place and by just clicking on a link you can visit that new basket and not even feel the burdens of the journey. It could be at a basement in Chappaqua New York the server you’re going to,…

    Artificial general intelligence: The domain of the patient, philosophical coder | Ben Goertzel

    My cousin who lives in Hong Kong is a game programmer, and he loves what I’m doing but he just tells me when we discuss it, “I need immediate gratification.” And he codes something and he sees a game character do something cool, right? And if you need that, if you really need to see something cool happen every day AGI is not for you. In AGI you may work six months and nothing interesting happens. And then something really interesting happens. So I think if someone doesn’t have that kind of stubborn, pigheaded persistence I will tend to employ them doing, for example, data analysis, because that gives immediate…

    Quantum Computer 💻 Future of Computing Explained [Hindi]

    Hello guys, In this video I am going to talk about Quantum Computers Quantum computing which is going to be the future of computing So, In this video I am going to talk about What is Quantum computers, How it works? and its comparison from normal computers and super computers In last video I told you that how modern computer’s CPU transistors are shrinking every year in size up to the scale of 10nm , 7nm etc.. but there is a limit even smaller transistors will be of subatomic size means smaller than atom and in this subatomic transistors, electron starts jumping barrier..which didn’t happen in bigger transistors So, In…

    Elon Musk: Computing More Advanced Than Space Exploration

    As a starting point, as you think back to your high school days 30 years ago– we were both there and dreaming of that future– what about today is or isn’t in accordance with what you thought back then? Where have your dreams of the future, the bold visions, met or not met reality today? Well I think the most remarkable thing that we have we do have today is the internet and access to all the world’s information from anywhere. So having a supercomputer in your pocket is, I think, something people wouldn’t have predicted in Back to the Future. So that’s the biggest thing. And probably what they…

    Quantum Computers Explained – Limits of Human Technology

    Quantum Computers Explained – Limits of Human Technology For most of our history, human technology consisted of our brains, fire, and sharp sticks. While fire and sharp sticks became power plants and nuclear weapons, the biggest upgrade has happened to our brains. Since the 1960’s, the power of our brain machines has kept growing exponentially, allowing computers to get smaller and more powerful at the same time. But this process is about to meet its physical limits. Computer parts are approaching the size of an atom. To understand why this is a problem, we have to clear up some basics. In a Nutshell – By Kurzgesagt A computer is made…

    Scientists Claim They Made Time Go Backwards…But Did They?

    Time travel to the past is basically impossible without breaking some laws of physics and acquiring plutonium from some Libyans. But time travel to the future is easy, we’re all doing it right now. So why does time go forward and not back? The idea that time only flows in one direction is called the Arrow of Time. But odd as it sounds, there’s nothing in the equations that describes the laws of physics that says it has to be this way. The equations CAN tell you what will happen in the future or what took place in the past based on what’s going on in the present, but they…

    Quantum Computing 101, with D-Wave’s Vern Brownell

    Quantum computing is a whole new category of computing and it directly leverages the laws of quantum mechanics to do a computation. As we all know quantum mechanics are the most fundamental laws in the universe. It describes how everything in the universe works. So what we’ve built and what other quantum computing researchers have done is create computers that directly use those laws of quantum mechanics. And that sounds fairly straightforward but, in fact, it’s quite difficult to do because the enemy of quantum computing is the environment. And when I saw the environment I mean things like temperature. And when you have temperature you have molecules moving around…
