Technology Spontaneously Approaching ‘Humanity’ with the Passage of Time --------------------------------------------------------------------------- By Avner Erez Tel Aviv University , Department of Film & Television Tools once helped early man increase his survivability, and they became more and more useful as means to achieve our goals. Today, innovations in technology have allowed us to fabricate tools of increasing complexity. As we recognize that the most effective tools have human charact
Digging Out of the AI Winter
Digging Out of the AI Winter In the early 1960s, when the first person fathomed the idea of artificial intelligence, it was nothing but a vision. It was a vision that seemed more than possible given the recent leaps in technological insight. Developments such as transistors, microprocessors, high-level programming languages, and many more had put the technology world in high gear. As a countless number of engineers and scientists went to work developing this coveted ‘artificial intelligence’, th

Differential Equations
Differential Equations Introduction Calculus is one of the most powerful and useful branches in the field of mathematics. It has been a major contributor to our knowledge of physics and engineering. Even though this field is so vast and complicated, it is only sub-divided into two major groups. These two branches being Differential and Integral Calculus. Combining the branches, we are able to achieve a higher goal; finding the solution to a differential equation. First, the basis of differentia
A Powerful Function
A Powerful Function In the year of 1938, there was a Caltech seismologist, by the name of C.F. Richter, who had come up with an equation to define the magnitude of an earthquake. The equation went like this: 10^m = A/A o The letter “A” being the amplitude of the resulting shockwave measured in millimeters on a seismograph and “A o” is a constant that depends on the seismograph and how far it is from the location of the earthquake. In measuring earthquakes, one does not solve for “y” in terms of

In the summer of 1969, not everyone was at Woodstock. In laboratories on either side of the continent a small group of computer scientists were quietly changing the future of communication. Their goal was to build a computer network that would enable researchers around the country to share ideas (Kantrowitz 56). The Internet we make so much today -- the global Internet which has helped scholars so much, where free speech is flourishing as never before in history -- the Internet was a cold war m
The Evaluation of the Microprocessor
The Evaluation of the Microprocessor. The microprocessor has changed a lot over the years, says (Michael W. Davidson,http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/chipshot.html) Microprocessor technology is progressing so rapidly that even experts in the field are having trouble keeping up with current advances. As more competition develops in this \$150 billion a year business, power and speed of the microprocessor is expanding at an almost explosive rate. The changes have been most evident over the last decade.
Fractal Geometry
Fractal Geometry Fractal Geometry is not just a chapter of mathematics, but one that helps Everyman to see the same old world differently. - Benoit Mandelbrot The world of mathematics usually tends to be thought of as abstract. Complex and imaginary numbers, real numbers, logarithms, functions, some tangible and others imperceivable. But these abstract numbers, simply symbols that conjure an image, a quantity, in our mind, and complex equations, take on a new meaning with fractals - a concrete
Technology and the Future of Work
Technology and the Future of Work Every society creates an idealised image of the future - a vision that serves as a beacon to direct the imagination and energy of its people. The Ancient Jewish nation prayed for deliverance to a promised land of milk and honey. Later, Christian clerics held out the promise of eternal salvation in the heavenly kingdom. In the modern age, the idea of a future technological utopia has served as the guiding light of industrial society. For more than a century utopi
The End of Work
The End of Work by Jeremy Rifkin What I wrote on the Canadian unemployment rate website: “Mark is correct. Unemployment rates are only based on people who are on unemployment insurance. Only about 50% of unemployed workers today are eligible for unemployment insurance in Canada and that rate is decreasing with higher requirements set by the government. To prove that you are looking for work, people are generally required to go to unemployment offices to prove that they had gone to interviews wit
Abstract EXAMPLES
Abstract EXAMPLES This paper describes an empirical life cycle model and uses it to predict the behavioral responses to a change in the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program known internally within the Social Security Administration as the “\$1 for \$2 benefit offset”. This policy has not been enacted yet, but has been actively supported by disability advocates as a way to provide greater incentives for SSDI benefi-ciaries who have fully or partially recovered from their disabilities
Support Vector Machine
Support Vector Machine CSC 4810-Artificial Intelligence ASSG# 4 SVM is an implementation of Support Vector Machine (SVM). Support Vector Machine was developed by Vapnik. The main futures of the program are the following: for the problem of pattern recognition, for the problem of regression, for the problem of learning a ranking function. Underlying the success of SVM are mathematical foundations of statistical learning theory. Rather than minimizing the training error, SVMs minimize structural r

The Y2K Bug
The Y2K Bug Introduction The year 2000 problem could have been completely prevented had some early people envisioned the degree to which the microprocessor would change our lives. Surely, no one would have thought that in the early days of ENIAC that everything from your alarm clock to your car would be computerized. Even the IT managers of the 80's could not be blamed: The disk space savings from dropping the two digits of the date over 100 Million Records would represent almost 200 Megabytes!
Service Mechanism and Process
Service Mechanism and Process Service Characteristics 1. Service Mechanism or Process: For each category of customer it is necessary to describe the service process. This is usually expressed as a probability distribution for service times; for example, service times might be normally distributed or uniformly distributed. At the least, we need to state the average time it takes for a server to serve a customer and the variance or standard deviation of the service time. We decline m = average ser
Black Holes
Black Holes Every day we look out upon the night sky, wondering and dreaming of what lies beyond our planet. The universe that we live in is so diverse and unique, and it interests us to learn about all the variance that lies beyond our grasp. Within this marvel of wonders, our universe holds a mystery that is very difficult to understand because of the complications that arise when trying to examine and explore the principles of space. That mystery happens to be that of the ever elusive, black
