The vision for which we live

You probably have a vision for which you live. Most of the time this vision will be beyond your current physical capacities to achieve but why should you still persist no matter how grand the vision before our mind's eye might seem before our current state?

The answer is simple, even if the vision might seem too grand when you do a self-evaluation of your current capacities, you possess the seed for the development of whatever capacities you might need to achieve your vision. If you are really really passionate about what you are aspiring for, if you are constantly immersed in the thought of achievement. If it is not just a fleeting desire but a burning vision, if it is your singular focus, the only thing that will give meaning to your biological existence, then you will achieve it or a fair approximation to it.

Currently, you might not be expressing all the capacities for which you are capable of, but with persistence in searching for ways to go beyond your current limits, you will eventually find clues that will lead to doorways that will take you beyond your current state and limits and into the state for which it will be much easier to chase some vision for which you live for.

If survival is your only motive then what I speak of here might seem like a remote unnecessary possibility, but if you live for something greater than yourself then you understand what I am talking about.

As always remember that it is always about the survival of the persistent.

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.

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.

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.
