Artificial Intelligence: 20 More year for Moore's Law

Physicist Michio Kaku predicts the future of silicon based technology for highly efficient computing which is needed for achieving the Artificial Intelligence.

The two fundamental problems which persists for artificial intelligence in robotics are Vision and Common Sense.
He argues that even if Moore's law holds for 50 more years, it will just reach our range of capabilities. But, he predicts that by 20 years the devices made with silicon will not be able to hold it. Since the thinnest silicon layer would be 5 atoms thick.

He suggests that the future is Quantum computing.
See the interesting interview video...

I think I am poor in knowledge about these robotics and in depth idea about even computer technology. I was not even familiar to this Michiko Kaku-may be thats because of I am from different area of Science. But I should have known this.

New technolgy coming soon and soon always fascinates me. In my opinion-all technology and science should serve for mankind. This is what I hope and expect in this case also. Scientists are those who can predict, have dream and imagine new things. I think these quantum computer are not impossible.

Shoes Thrown At Bush

One of the journalist throws shoes on to Bush while his surprise visit to Iraq. Its a history in America now that the president of USA has been insulted to this level. His comment was that the shoes must be of size 10.

Talented Mouse ever seen

The most talented mouse ever seen. I was not able to believe by myself what human can do and mouse can do. The person who ever trained the mouse must be real trainer in the world.

Himalayan treaking to Dolpa

In couple of previous videos in Palai Palo, we have talked about natural beauty of Nepal. This time also, I am taking about it. The video presented here is a documentary type video prepared by Nepal Forum of Environment Journalists.It takes us to Dolpa, a remote place in North -Western part of Nepal in Karnali region. In spite of its richness in natural beauty and resources, people are facing basic human needs.

Enjoy the video and don't forget to leave a comment.

Robotics: Movement

When it comes to building stuffs we want something that moves. Few days back AD published amazing boston dynamics dog/mule. This one is similar, it can move thru' the obstacles, that is amazing. I am impressed by the way it tackles the flip at the end of the video.

The next one is moving through the liquid.

The next step would be to add some bits of intelligence onto them!!!
