THE UNIVERSAL OPERATING SYSTEM: The answer to life the universe and everything

The simulation theory of the universe, the theory that states that the entire universe is a computer simulation, has taken the world by storm these days. Many versions of the theory have been promulgated by different individuals from tech titans, philosophers and the general thinking public alike. My theory is quite different from the most popular, which states that the universe is a regular computer simulation running on some kind of Von Neumann computer or quantum computer whichever you like.
I state that space, time and matter are structures executing code! That is, the physical universe which we can observe is actually the lowest level on the abstraction layers that make up the universal computer! Just like the physical electronic circuitry makes possible the abstract software that runs on a computer, the physical universe makes it possible for some software at meta-levels to run, the system is in layers and at the highest level of abstraction is no different than the kinds of software which we use.

The principle of computational equivalence stated by Stephen Wolfram states that all is computation, with the ideas in my book THE UNIVERSAL OPERATING SYSTEM available now on Amazon, you will have a new, different and I hope better idea of the nature of Life, the universe and everything.

Next Steps Towards Strong Artificial Intelligence

What is Intelligence? Pathways to Synthetic Intelligence If you follow current AI Research then it will be apparent to you that AI research, the deep learning type has stalled! This does not mean that new areas of application for existing techniques are not appearing but that the fundamentals have been solved and things have become pretty standardized.

What is Intelligence: Software writing Software

Sometimes I wonder why programmers are hell-bent on writing programs that can communicate in natural language and not even putting adequate effort into writing programs that write other programs. Maybe is because of the natural tendency to protect one's source of livelihood by not attempting to automate it away or maybe because writing programs is hard enough such that contemplating of writing some program that writes programs might be even harder.

Virtual Reality is the next platform

VR Headset. Source: It's been a while now since we started trying to develop Virtual Reality systems but so far we have not witnessed the explosion of use that inspired the development of such systems. Although there are always going to be some diehard fans of Virtual Reality who will stick to improving the medium and trying out stuff with the hopes of building a killer app, for the rest of us Virtual Reality still seems like a medium that promises to arrive soon but never really hits the spot.
