Artificial Intelligence and Authentic Intelligence

Scientific people have always enjoyed the thought of artificial intelligence--of a machine being able to think and act on its own. It's a popular theme for novels and movies too. And who of us wouldn't love to have a personal robot to anticipate our needs and take care of them? I even remember a production from the local planetarium about computers worldwide that networked and synergized their data. At the end of the production this networked computer system commanded, "Let there be light!" and a new universe was born.
Artificial intelligence has as many definitions as people defining it. For some it is only a matter of a machine being able to analyze data and then take an appropriate action. But I think for most, it means that a machine can actually think, can learn, can create, can come up with original ideas--that it can act like a person and be indistinguishable from a human being in its actions and thoughts.
If artificial intelligence is only a machine or a system acting on its own, then a lawn sprinkler system that has a moisture meter to know if it has rained or not would be artificial intelligence. If it has rained, the sprinklers will not come on until the sensor dries out. But this system has been programmed to act that way, and the only reason it won't act that way is if it malfunctions. In no way is that intelligent. The system is not thinking at all. It is doing what it has been programmed to do and has no other choice.
I maintain that the more popular definition of artificial intelligence--that a machine or system can think, decide, and create--is impossible.
First, a definition of intelligence that I think most people would agree with: Intelligence is the ability to learn; to have experiences that teach what works and what doesn't. Then to take that learning and do something worthwhile with it.
To truly learn something, a machine would need emotions. People need emotions to learn too, and since we have them there is no end to what we can learn or what we can do with our knowledge. Higher animals also have emotions and are able to learn. The less intelligent an organism is, the more instinctual it is, meaning it does things because it doesn't have a choice--because it is less intelligent. Lower organisms like bacteria do not have emotions at all, as far as we know, and they act more like machines that have been programmed than like living organisms. They don't act as if they have a choice. They simply do what their genetic programming makes them do.
Machines do not have emotions and are incapable of having them. A person can program a machine to act as if it has emotions, but obviously it doesn't really have them. A machine can be programmed to search the Internet, watch television and listen to radio broadcasting, read books and magazines, and listen to people speak. It can amass huge amounts of data and it can analyze those data and act. But only as it has been programmed to act. It has lots of data but it doesn't care about them. It couldn't care less if all those data sat on its hard drive and nothing ever became of them. It couldn't care less if someone came along and erased all those data. It wouldn't feel bad for a week because all that hard work had come to naught. So any machine or system that has to be programmed to act because it doesn't care about acting otherwise, even thought it can be and do amazing things, is no more intelligent than a lawn sprinkler system with a moisture meter to indicate whether the sprinklers should run or not. And even though all the "knowledge" on earth can be stored on computers, and computers can be networked together to maximize their power, that will never create a God who can create a new universe.
We people learn because of emotions. We want things. We need things. People have only one instinct: self-preservation. We learn things to keep ourselves alive and comfortable. We sometimes learn because of embarrassment or disappointment. We get excited about things and want to know everything about them. I have talked to 5-year-old children who knew more about dinosaurs than I will ever know or care to know.
I saw a Nova program on PBS about separating conjoined twins. One of the twins had a tracheotomy, and therefore had no voice. But she quickly learned to pull her sister's hair so that her sister did the crying for both of them. She also, later, learned to cover her throat with her hand so that breath passed through her vocal cords. Each time she vocalized in this way she smiled, pleased with her ability to learn something and act intelligently.
People are authentically intelligent because they can and do learn new things on their own, and then figure out how to put their knowledge to use to preserve themselves, then to help others, then to try to make the whole human experience on Earth better. There is certainly a place among us for machines that can analyze data and act as they have been programmed, but that is the extent of their worth.
Companies, parents, and governments should value people because they are people. Machines will never replace people. Treating people as extensions of technology will never lead to success. Letting people use their intelligence and technology to do amazing things will lead to outrageous success.
It is very good to be a thinking, creating, choosing, feeling, remembering, self-actualizing, improving person. Nothing pleases me more than that I am a person.

The Evolution of Digital Cameras

The concept of capturing still images evolved from the basic ideas of the camera, with its roots found deep into the historical time frame of the early Chinese as well as Greeks. The first attempt at photography was achieved with the idea of viewing images through the idea of the pin-hole device. This idea of this device was thought of as theologically conceived, based on the earlier concept of a Divine power. The digital camera known today is descended from a long lineage of cameras.
The technology behind the pin-hole camera enabled creative minds to conceive of the idea of capturing still images, which led to an earlier version of the camera. The first recorded knowledge of the device implemented with the capacity to capture images reveals the idea that transportability was not taken into account when establishing this device. It was large enough to accommodate individuals.
The image capturing processes of this version of the camera was enabled through the available elements of nature, which provided the lighting that was captured through the pin hole. This then enabled the image of the individual inside to be displayed on a screen. The displayed image was then manually copied onto available materials.
This camera was solely intended to entertain. This version of the camera developed in to the later version which enabled more convenient portability. This was due to the improvements made by certain inventors of the time, using the properties of certain versions of darkening chemicals at the time. The darkening aspects of the chemicals revealed themselves under the needed light to see the images. Due to this, the images did not last.
A more successful attempt using a different substance at the time resulted in a lasting captured image. A gelatinous plating devised by a later scientist enabled higher speed image capturing, with improved standards of image result. The quality of speed required a capturing system to meet the newer standards, which resulted in a shutter that observed a mechanical response when triggered.
After the invention of the first form of film, the first recognizable form of the device known as the camera was established. The version of the nineteenth century was black block shaped device, with the same capturing technologically advanced capabilities known to later cameras. While the cameras evolved, different types became more readily available, with the latest improvement being the digital cameras known today. The latest choices offer features such as video capture and photographic upload into a storage medium, such as computers before being shared.

Safe Downloading

Nothing in this world is without risk!
...certainly not Downloading.
There's always the risk that you might download something that damages your computer of your files, or spyware that allows strangers to access your confidential material or even use your computer for their own purposes.
The majority of sources are perfectly honourable, but those few who are not can cause you no end of problems! So here are a few simple rules
1: Security Software
Don't download anything until you've got reputable Security Software like McAfee or Norton installed.
(This of course should not prevent you downloading reputable security software!)
2: Check Out the Source Site.
Is it a household name?
If you're downloading something from Windows or Sourceforge or a well-known internet or high street retailer like Amazon or House of Frazer it's probably OK
Does it look professional?
If it seems superficial if basic don't download from it. If it is clearly well researched and presented then downloads from it are likely to be safe. Otherwise:
Check it out on the Internet
Do a search on the supplier's name. Look out for blogs or forums relating the experience of satisfied or dissatisfied customers. Have they experience problems with downloads?
If you are still uncertain type;'WHOIS' into your search engine. There are a number of free programs there you can use to see who owns a particular website. Use 'cut and paste' to make sure you have the exact web address even for what appears to be a well-known and reputable dealer: scammers often use 'near-mis-spells' of well known names.
3: Check out the File you want to Download
Does it Contain Executable files?
Executable files have file names with.exe', '.bat', '.pif', and '.scr'..
If it you does you should be very wary. Don't download it without running it past your security software.
Is it Big Enough?
There are usually several possible sources for the sort of software you want to download. If your choice is significantly smaller that the others, don't download it.
Is it Unexpected?
If you receive an E-mail from an unknown sender with a file attached, delete it immediately. That has 'virus' written all over it.
4: Tips 
  1. Don't use the 'download' and 'install' options for anything other than downloads from the most famous and reputable sites - Google, Microsoft, McAfee, Norton, Skype. etc.
  2. Otherwise use the 'Download' and 'Save' option.
  3. If in doubt don't download.

How To Make Life Easy With DSLR Cameras

To give you more ideas, here are some tips you can follow when looking for DSLR cameras.
Get more information
The first thing you should do is to learn more about cameras. This doesn't necessarily mean you should enroll in a photography class before getting one. You just need a little background to know about the products and their features. One way to do this is to research online.
Search for websites with free tutorials on the basics of DSLR cameras and product reviews. These may help you find the best camera for your activities. Try to ask some of your friends or colleagues for product or brand referrals.

Determine your goals
The next step is to know your goals. Why are you buying a camera? Is it for film or photography? There are various types of camera and each has specific features. There are cameras that can capture moving objects, and there are cameras only good for taking still photos. Your goals and activities will determine which type of camera will work best for you.
If you want a camera for filming, you should look for models with high precision. The best precision count should be at least 50-80mm. There are DSLR cameras with multiple lenses. These are ideal for both filming and photography. You can also adjust the lenses according to your requirements. You can use fisheye or widescreen lens to add more effects. You should check out some useful camera accessories to give you more functions and comfort when taking your shots.
Check out the latest features
You should also consider the special features of the camera. Most DSLRs today can produce HD quality images. This is a good advantage for filmmakers, as they don't have to rely on large HDV cameras. Just make sure the settings are compatible with the software you're using at home. Look for a universal audio jack. This is very important, especially if you're using lapel or boom microphones. Ask the supplier or read the manual so you will know the best camera accessories you may use. There are now special tools you may install so you can upgrade the quality of the images.
The most popular brands for DSLR cameras today are Canon and Nikon. These brands are the best when it comes to camera functions. Most experts recommend Canon for filming and Nikon for photography; but there are some models ideal for both activities. For Canon, look for 550D, EOS, and the latest EOS 7D. If you are considering Nikon, you should check out the D90 or their latest Nikon D4.

When Nanjing IOT Wireless Sensor Networks Meet the Cloud Tech

A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of a large number of low-cost, low-power, multifunctional and resource-constrained sensor nodes with each sensor node consisting of sensing, data processing, and communicating components; these nodes can operate unattended for long durations. Sensor networks are designed with the flexibility to withstand harsh environmental conditions. These are networks of wireless interconnected smart devices designed and deployed to retrieve sensor data of interest from their host environments. Sensor nodes perform measurements of some physical phenomena, collect and process data, communicate with other peers or a central information processing unit, the sink. These nodes are capable of sensing various phenomena, such as Pressure, Temperature, Humidity, Position, Velocity, Acceleration, Force, Vibration, Proximity, Motion, Biochemical agents, etc. They are capable of processing textual, voice and video data making them very useful.
According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Cloud Computing (CC) is an innovative technological paradigm that provides convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (for example, sensors) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
Cloud Computing provides several benefits such as on-demand self-service, broad network access, resource pooling (location independence), rapid elasticity, measured service, massive scale, homogeneity, virtualization, resilient computing, low cost software, geographic distribution, service orientation and advanced security.
The integration of these two key technologies (WSNs and CC) provides us with a robust and scalable infrastructure for several applications such as the Smart Grid. This novel approach allows for the efficient management of millions of smart meters or sensors and other energy management systems. This infrastructure also provides the tools necessary for collecting, disseminating and storing real-time sensor data from geographically disparate sensors. The Cloud components provide a foundation for securing and providing user access to the software, middleware and hardware resources.
Nanjing IOT Sensor Technology is the Chinese leading supplier for IOT devices products and solutions. It keeps sustainable innovation based on customers' needs to have determined the industry leader in several major areas such as sensors, IOT modules, mobile IOT and cloud computing etc. The company has become leader of IOT time with the comprehensive advantages in such areas as objects perception and data transfer etc. Till now, the products and solutions have been applicated in several focused IOT demonstraion projects, which have made us become important technical support force for IOT city construction all over the country.

iPod Touch Apps - The Reason It Is the Most Versatile MP3 Player In The World

When it comes to the MP3 player, there is no questioning the fact that Apple has all of its bases covered. Ever since the original iPod made its way onto store shelves, Apple has basically dominated the portable music market. Even though they already had the MP3 player market covered, Apple wanted to take their innovation to the next level. In late 2007, the iPod Touch was released, which would completely redefine the functionality of the modern MP3 player.
The release of the iPod Touch marked the end of an era when iPods were just MP3 players. The iPod touch redefined the capability of a portable device. Upon the opening of the App Store, doors were opened for hundred, if not thousands, of developers. Developers were able to create applications to cover just about anything a person would need to do throughout their day. Currently, there are over 500,000 applications available for download in the App Store.
Games on the iPod Touch are by far some of the best selling applications. The iPod Touch has a strong enough processor to handle games that require quite a few resources. There are games ranging in all categories, from puzzle games, to arcade games, shooters, and even card games. These games are great to pass time and many people enjoy just relaxing with their iPod and a quick game.
There are also many applications for tracking things. There are tons of applications out there for iPhones for tracking purchases and keeping track of spending. These are very useful, as a person can often remember to enter a charge into a device whereas writing it down usually results in a person forgetting or losing the paper the information was written on. In addition, there are applications to track things like calories and distance walked / ran over a course of time. Pretty much anything that a person would wish to keep track of, the iPhone allows a person to keep track of it.
In addition to those two categories of applications, there are also thousands of apps for pretty much anything a person would consider doing. There are map / direction applications, useful for people trying to find their way around. There are applications that use the internet to research information (such as movie or business reviews). There are applications of many, many other styles as well. Basically, if an idea is feasible, there's most likely an application for it in the App Store. There is a reason Apple has been on top for so long and it's because of feature rich devices like the iPad Touch.

Technology All CG Artists Should Know About

Maybe you're reading this article because you are an intrigued CG artist. You have been involved with designing characters and props for movies, video games, and animations for years, or possibly only months. You have an established portfolio of designs that are helping you to find more work, but maybe there is something else out there. Maybe you'd want more from your designs aside from a cool screen saver. The countless hours on top of hours spent on each individual project deserve a little bit more respect, and I know how you can fulfill that.
3D printing is a technology that can bring your designs to life. This technology can help build your portfolio in a very "unorthodox" way that stands out from other CG artists. 3D printing is a form of manufacturing that involves the layer by layer assembly of products. In order for this technology to follow through, a design will have to be mocked up through one of various softwares. The 3D file created will be sent to a "3D printer", or the machine that physically manufactures the product. The computer on the printer will tell the ink jets, laser, nozzles, or ultraviolet rays, exactly where to begin manufacturing the product. 3D printing creates products one layer at a time in a very unorthodox form of manufacturing. This layer-by-layer process gives 3D printing almost complete geometrical independence, opposed to traditional forms of machining or CNC cutting. Products can be created in ceramics, thermoplastics like ABS, precious metals, or even full color materials. What does this mean?
CG artists can physically manufacture their designs through 3D printing. The hours of work and effort spent on projects can yield a physical model to hold in your very own hands. 3D printing isn't free, but it isn't unobtainable. Buying a 3D printer might be an option, as some printers only cost around $1,000. However, not everyone can simply throw around $1,000. Creating a 6 inch character models (dependent on the width and shape) could cost less than $100. A hollowed out model at 5" x 2" x 3" might cost $25 in full color. These models can be created through 3D printing services that exist on an international level. What comes from manufacturing your models?
Perhaps you have an interview coming up with a large corporation that may be hiring you. Of course you will print out your 2D portfolio to present, and this is very valuable. However, imagine handing your interviewer physical models of your best designs. Holding a visual model has the power to truly sell yourself, and your portfolio.
Maybe you have an interesting concept idea that people will pay for. Many people open up their own stores within these 3D printing communities offering specific character models that consumers can buy. This would be a different way to pocket some residual income from your current designs.
You just might want to have a physical model of a design that is valuable to you. The hours of hard work and effort put into creating a 3D image might have meant something to you; if you really cared about the project, maybe you want to own a piece of it. By that I mean: you might want to have your design sitting on your night stand or on your wall. You might want to hold on to your hard work... literally. It is inspiring to physically hold on to something that you put so much time and heart into; 3D printing is a way to bring a piece of you into real life. Whether you are preparing a physical portfolio as an artist or engineer, or you just want to bring your creations to life, 3D printing can help advance you in your career as a designer.

Google - Do No Evil!

Google, the most-used search engine on the world wide web, receives millions of queries each day through its various services. Be it lyrics of songs you are searching for or recipe of some far eastern dish, Google is there for your rescue. Google, has often been cited as an important milestone in the history of internet and it has definitely lived up to the motto of its founders "Do no evil."
What's in the name?
"Google" is actually the misspelling of " googol" which refers to the number represented by a 1 followed by one-hundred zeros. Since, Page and Brin the founders of Google were aiming at building very large-scale search engines the name suited them perfectly.
Google began in March 1996 as a research project by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, students at Stanford working on the Stanford Digital Library Project. The goal of the project was "to develop the enabling technologies for a single, integrated and universal digital library."
Conventional search engines ranked results by counting how many times the search terms appeared on the page but Page and Brin theorized about a better system that analyzed the relationships between websites. This new technology determined a website's relevance by the number of pages, and the importance of those pages, that linked back to the original site. Simply put, it helps rank web pages that match a given search string. The algorithm was named PageRank (after Larry Page) with patent assigned to Stanford University. However, Google has exclusive license rights on the patent from Stanford University.
Google Inc. (Google), a global technology company, was first incorporated as a privately held company on September 4, 1998. The announcement for its initial public offering followed on August 19, 2004. Brin and Page own about 16 percent of the company's stake. Forbes - Google is ranked 103 among the Top Global 2000 with a market cap of $203.22 billion (as on April 2012).
Google is a brilliant example of doing one thing really really well. It also understands the constant race of today's man against time and probably they are the only people who want the people to leave their website as quickly as possible. Google is applauded for assessing the importance of each page using variety of techniques and gives you information on the go. "Don't be evil" - the company's unofficial motto is said to recognize that You can make money without doing evil.
This search engine's mission can be summed up as facilitating access to information for the entire world, and in every language. To that end, the company has offices in more than 60 countries. Surely, Information or Google knows no boundaries.

Increasing Mobile Payments

What is the best way to be connected with customers all the time? Well that is easy: mobile devices. While it is easy to connect with customers over mobile devices, it is much harder to get them to purchase products through it. 25% of smartphone owners say that they have purchased something on their mobile devices while 60% say they purchased online and 87% purchased in the store according to Wave Collapse. The biggest reason is because consumers just find it easier to swipe a card in the store than try and order online. There are a few things that businesses can do to try and make it easier on their customers to buy with their mobile devices.
The first thing is to make sure that your site and everything on it is up to date and works with all browsers and operating systems. You do not want half of your customers to not be able to view your site or use it because they do not have the most up to date equipment. If it you have to choose a certain range of technology because of budget, it is a smart idea to choose those systems that have the most users. It is also necessary to have fast checkout speed and loading pages. Consumers are impatient and the faster something loads the better for them.
The next thing that customers worry about is the security of their information. Just like on a computer, customers want their information to be secure so that if they lose their device someone will not be able to get to their information, especially their credit card number. Data encryption and password protection as well as a secure connection will keep customer data safe and make them feel better about buying online.
One more way to make it better for customers to purchase with their mobile device is to have a one-click checkout. Businesses can use a card vault provider, a service which keeps customers credit card data secure in a database separate from the business, to give customers peace of mind when putting in their credit card number. This service also makes making a purchase simpler because it saves the customer's information for future purchases and takes out all the steps which can deter a customer from buying.
The future for mobile commerce looks good in face of all the doubt about mobile payments. In 3 years, it is predicted by RSR Research that 24% of retailers will have annual sales of 15% or more from their mobile channel. Right now, about 74 million American consumers shop from their mobile devices according to InMobi. Mobile usage and purchasing is increasing rapidly. It is a good idea for business to look further into the sales potential of mobile payments. With a strong mobile payment strategy a business can insure that it is making it as easy as possible for their customers to purchase on their mobile device and that they will continue to make repeat purchases.

Laser printers are a common type of device able to quickly and efficiently produce text and graphics on a sheet of plain paper. These devices work by employing a xerographic printing process, different from traditional analogue photocopiers. In a laser printer, the image and/or text is produced via a laser scanning directly over the photoreceptor. Printers with this technology are always growing in popularity, as they do not require ink and are able to print at greatly increased speeds. Samsung offers many types of printers for sale.
Types of Laser Printers - Black & White
Samsung offers a variety of black & white laser printers. These devices are dependable, steady and can easily trump competitors in terms of capability of monthly output. Easily the most popular printer is the Mono Laser Single Function Printer, a wireless, duplex printer. It is capable of automatic duplex printing and can print up to 29 pages per minute. This allows the device to increase productivity and save money. It is also eco-friendly, providing an "eco-mode button" which sets up features such as duplex printing and toner saving. Lastly, the printer is completely wireless, enabling it to be used by multiple computers with no cords to trip over. It is no wonder this printer won an editor's choice award. The wired version is slightly cheaper and still contains many of the important features.
Types of Laser Printers - Color
The laser color printers offered by Samsung are extremely popular and well-reviewed. It is no surprise, given the efficiency and quality of the prints provided.The CLP-325W Color Printer is the cheaper option at just $200. It is great for home use and has a very sleek and stylish look. It offers one touch wi-fi connection and features Samsung's special polymerized toner for even better prints.

Wireless Waiter Paging: Wiring the World Without Wires

In the past, people talked by organizing face-to-face meetings, sharing their thoughts and views in person. Soon, technology made a giant leap with wired telecoms which allowed people to reach out to each other without necessarily being physically present. Not long after that, technology has come up with a way for people to talk without being tethered by a piece of wire.
Wireless telecoms keep parties connected with each other even though they are in opposite sides of the world. Because of the ease and convenience it brings, it has seen many applications in modern lifestyle, from mobile phones, two-way radios, wi-fi internet to waiter paging systems. Much has been written about the first three, but not a lot people know about the benefits wireless waiter paging has to offer.
If you run a very big restaurant and want to monitor every nook and cranny, you will need spools of wires for that. With a wireless waiter paging system, all you will need is a central transmitter and some pagers for your waiters to carry. The transmitter can cover an area as big as a thousand yards or more.
Most paging systems have a built-in range test mode to determine just how far the transmitter can reach. While the systems have enough range to cover the entire restaurant, it pays to know how big your restaurant is. You can purchase an extended range antenna to boost the range of your current transmitter.
Waiter paging systems are built to make serving food and other activities more organized. By fitting your waiters and staff with a pager, instead of looking all over the bar for them, you can simply press the button and let them come to you. This way, you won't bother other waiters by asking them whether or not they have seen this fellow waiter. Business activity has to be in full and continuous swing especially during peak hours.
Today, you seldom need wires to make sure you have control over your restaurant. Thanks to the advancements in modern technology, your establishment can be "wired without using any wires" through the use of waiter paging systems. This will enable you to provide excellent customer service that will keep old and new patrons coming back for more.

Infrared Technologies - What Can We Use Them For in the Future?

Not long ago, I had an interesting conversation about the challenges of future infrared technologies and how they might limit our personal freedoms. Perhaps, you've heard that infrared is being used to help police catch folks growing illegal plants (drugs) in their homes, and they use this with a combination of watching the usage on these new smart meters, that makes sense and it makes their policing job perhaps easier. Still, there are issues with our Constitution regarding search and seizure, as you can readily see.
Of course, our laws hadn't accounted for these new technologies until perhaps about 10-years ago, and now there is some case law on the books, some might see these cases as counter to the spirit of the Constitution and yet, this is how the courts have chosen to interpret these things, thus, these cases stand, and therefore, perhaps we might discuss all this.
You see, more and more miniature UAVs are being used by enforcement agencies, some call these units MAVs or Micro Air Vehicles, but regardless of what you call them, many of them do have infrared scanners aboard to catch evading suspects running from the police. That also makes sense, well until one of those UAVs comes after an innocent man in violation of his rights as a citizen.
Anyway, my acquaintance had inquired about these types of infrared sensors being used here at home, and so I asked; what are you trying to do or what application are you considering - for instance self-driving car sensors to prevent pedestrian deaths, robotic sentry facility security, search and rescue, Sci Fi work alien vs. human, lie detector tests for podium pushing politicians, fever or sickness detection in crowds, soldier protection against unmanned enemy robots, sportswear heat ventilation?
In any case the examples above are most of where my thoughts have been with regards to IR heat signatures of humans, but I've also considered the need for a study of brain temperatures vs. depression, mania, and crowd control, along with cell phone microwave frequencies and brain overheating or deep stimulation and emotion. Infrared can assist in so many sub-categories, thus, it is very important to understand - for future innovations.
Although my acquaintance was not at liberty to explain his new use of this technology or what new invention he'd come up with, you can bet that this will be in the media and science news for decades to come, along with anti-infrared systems for camouflage for military personnel in the battlespace. Indeed, I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
