Ennetech by Erasmus and Kinkajou Authors

General Index: >

 

Erasmus and Kinkajou share their vision of technologies that will help us on our way.

 

 

 

 

 

How we handle information and our expectations of our machines is changing.

 

The new front line is intelligent machines & processing information to extract value.

COMPUTERS IN FUTURE TECH

ErasmusErasmus : The "Singularity" page focuses on the technologies involved in the production of computer intelligence or artificial intelligence. We have reached the point where our systems can begin to emulate many of the capacities of biological intelligence. Yes our machines need to be trained, but so do biological entities. Whether we achieve true artificial intelligence or a simple software emulation of intelligence, only time will tell. And if our machines are capable of learning, to what extent are the really different to biologicals. How will the computer intelligences of the future change our ability to do things, remains to be seen?

Dr XxxxxDr Xxxxx : The advent of the singularity means that for the first time in history man will not be truly alone.

Dr AXxxxxDr AXxxxx : Open your eyes you twit.

ErasmusErasmus : The Memristors webpage looks at how a new electronic circuit – being a combination of memory and resistance could change silicon computerisation. Their appearance suggests that the Terminator of the future may be a real possibility. Their capabilities would allow the mimicking of many facets of biologicals – instant on off (as opposed to boot sequence on off) as well as new methods of Logic operations – giving our artificial computer intelligences new capacities.

KinkajouKinkajou : I’m not sure I would like to be alone with a Terminator. Perhaps we should defer developing artificial intelligence till we can at least make sure they will be friendly.

ErasmusErasmus : The Internet Revolution is maturing but there is still much further to go. The Internet allows the network distribution of information – in the form of “actual” data or in “command and control” data. To develop the sprite – or the Internet of things, we need to develop a network capable of interfacing with microscopic entities or devices. We make the point that it is the social aspect that is perhaps the greatest frontier in allowing the full usage of the concept of the Internet. At the most basic level, it is who pays for access which limits our access. While we can often obtain information from the latest Journal, very few people on the planet would be able to pay forty dollars as may be requested to access this information. It is these other issues – who pays for what – which will limit our exploitation of the concept of the Internet.

Dr XxxxxDr Xxxxx : Knowledge is not wisdom. The Internet can help us to see and know many things. But it cannot make choices. Artificial intelligence may help us to make choices, but we will need to teach it much of what we think about ourselves to help it along its way.

ErasmusErasmus : "Book Readers" suggests that there may be a new paradigm for the consumption of the printed word. It is likely that it will rewrite the way we use newspapers and magazines, which are becoming increasingly irrelevant to our Internet-based information Society. To use such a technology effectively, requires social changes.

Frobisher beethoven cammandantBeethoven : I know they are called book readers, but do you think we can look at little movies and cartoons as well? and how about a little Hentai as well?

KinkajouKinkajou : Absolutely my bullywot mate. But, quiet about the Hentai. If the some people hear you, you could be in trouble.

ErasmusErasmus : GUI for Health focuses on how the medical record can impact on our practice of medicine. The entry of structured data into a database allows far more informative data mining. Our health record interfaces leave much to be desired. But in this frontier again it is the social milieu which limits many developments. Simple issues such as who owns the data, who can have access to it and under what circumstances are paramount in this area of technology.

Dr XxxxxDr Xxxxx : I can see the GUI as the language interface between humans and computing intelligence. A way of allowing information to be stored and to flow two ways, taking advantages of the strengths of each of the members of this partnership.

ErasmusErasmus : OurHealth Recordpages look at the technologies inherent in recording health information for the individual, while making it available to others who care for that individual. Social engineering aspects of health records are paramount. Many feel that they have ownership or access rights, but who should determine what these may be. At the most basic level, the health record looks at storing low-level information – such as from an individual and sharing it across a diverse network of other people. Privacy, security, access and veracity are all substantial issues for distributed databases, such as the health record.

Frobisher beethoven cammandantBeethoven : I don’t think most computers will need a health record. A sick computer needs to be replaced. A sick database, essentially needs to put down.
