Welcome to the Lounge

   

For lazing about and discussing anything in a software developer's life that takes your fancy except programming questions.

Technical discussions are encouraged, but click here to ask your programming question.

The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming questions and please don't post ads.

Agree with most of things you written.
As for neurons my humble but definitive opinion: they are only a DISH/net capturing vibrations from the command center and other sources outside the human entity i.e. this neuron net is used as operational RAM it doesn't represent the power of a given person but his ability to process according to those strings/nets (a marionette play), same goes for all living things (all is alive as far as I know).

Old news (around 2006) at http://www.netezza.com/releases/2006/release111606.htm[^]:
[
Netezza’s system uses a data-intensive rather than traditional compute-intensive approach.
Netezza’s data management appliance, a massively parallel data analytic system, was evaluated by searching a massive semantic graph used to determine relationships between objects by storing nodes (the object) and how they link to other objects (an edge). Semantic graphs are an important technology for analyzing relationships in large data sets. The graph contained 300 billion edges and 11 billion nodes, the largest known graph search to date.
Computer scientists ran level-set expansion, and bi-directional, breadth-first search against the data. More than 90 percent of the searches were completed in less than five minutes, demonstrating Netezza’s ability to scale for managing and analyzing the largest data sets. These types of calculations have traditionally been conducted on very large and complex systems, but can now be executed on an appliance that is easy to deploy, maintain and use.
“We’re looking for simplicity and scalability,” said John Johnson, a LLNL computer scientist.

It is obvious that all computational approaches suck without a super-vast data-set.
Again, I am stunned how come that with all computational power we currently possess we (the INTERNET users) don't have even a dummy (not AI-class) English phrase checker?!
What is the problem? My rough estimation says: 5 to 10 billion word1-word2-word3-word4 quadruples, the rest orders likewise.

Thanks, fun is important yes.
Get down get down get down get it on show love and give it up
What are you waiting on?
