If Artificial Intelligence Can Be Created, Here’s How

What does one do with half a million cpu cores? I know I would be making the damn this think it is smart…I would hope that something like this could pass a turing test. But then again, probably not…only because we are just a bunch of idiots fumbling around with electricity and poor scripts.

So let’s get out there and play with plasma and gene code instead.

Slow Motion Videos Are Cool To Watch

So a few days ago, I posted about some slow motion videos of skateboarders (The Gene Pool Needs More Thinning).  Today, I have some better videos.  These actually have some value and are much more interesting to watch.  Go check the out at 10 of the Most Mind-Blowing Slow Motion Videos You’ve Ever Seen.

The Sun! The Sun!

I have been following Phil Plait’s Bad Astronomy blog for several years now and I must say he is one intelligent man. He does a great job of explaining a lot of astronomical events and concepts so that the basic person can understand him. I tend to agree with a lot of what he says and would love the opportunity to meet him some day. Since he is not a recluse and tends to travel to a bunch of different events, hopefully I will have that chance sometime in the not so distant future.

Today, Phil brings us a great article on a solar coronal mass ejection that might increase the aurora displays tonight. If you live in an area where you can see those (I am not privileged having my current residence in Tampa, Florida), hopefully you get the chance to see it. Head on over to his blog and read his article titled Sun blows out another big one, expect aurorae tonight!.
