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 the 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

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.

At the edge of a cliff - Quantum Computing

Quantum computing reminds me of the early days of computer development (the 50s - 60s) where we had different companies come up with their different computer architectures. You had to learn how to use one architecture then move to another then another as you hoped to explore different systems that were better for one task than they were for another task.

Software of the future

From the appearance of the first programmable computer, the software has evolved in power and complexity. We went from manually toggling electronic switches to loading punch cards and eventually entering C code on the early PDP computers. Video screens came in and empowered the programmer very much, rather than waiting for printouts to debug our programs, we were directly manipulating code on the screen.
