Um.... WOW!! Excellent find...
The perspective is just terrifying in its certainties.....
#1 Net active country is....... BERMUDA ?!?!?!? Serious WOW!!
Very. But would have liked some info on the UK or something in there.
And Tonga is one of the fattest. Small islands are easy to cater for.
iRobot, the documentary.
Interesting stuff. I would if in years to come we will look back on it as we do those old predictions of the future.
The statistic was vitally different
The #1 Ranked country in Broadband Internet Penetration is ... Bermuda.
In this case it definitely is genetic.
What does that even mean? My mind cannot raise up from the gutters on this one.
I guess it is % of population that is on a broadband connection.
395 babies born in India during that presentation?
Umm, mazel tov?
By 2013 supercomputers will be more powerful than the human brain? I have my doubts about this one... there's so much we do not understand about the human brain, I wonder if it's even possible to build a computer that could perform at the same level. The human brain also forms new pathways and links through new experience... a computer is limited by its hardware.
Still, interesting stuff...
Saw it before. Interesting presentation.
Not sure I believe the computer projection.
I think we have a mathematical benchmark for what the brain can do. Obviously we know the performance of computers too. When one matches the other we have a computer of equal processing power....course that doesn't mean it'll actually be intelligent, it just means if programmed with a task it can "think" as quickly as we can.
Yes, that's what it is....but that number isn't too shocking. Bermuda has 66,000 people living on an island smaller than Manhattan, it isn't exactly difficult to get broadband lines out to every house when working with a small number of houses in a small area.
plus it might be a bad thing... i.e Terminator. haha
As much as I want to say the population figures are ratios and thus inaccurate when you compare countries, the earth is staying the same size while the population grows no matter if it's a ratio or not.
Scary, in a way.
Bermuda can chalk up another sweet amenity: Pina Coladas, tan women, cheap grass and broadband internet, baby!
There's the Blue Brain project, and they think they could simulate a brain using a supercomputer, down to the molecular level, in about a decade.
Plus, there's this other project, where they've recreated neural networks in hardware/silicon form. Basically, it's a chip that behaves like a neural network.

This is why I want to retire with a small yacht of some kind. The expanse is already destroying the area I live, new housing developments taking up every free space we have.
Damn city rassle frassle.
I did know...like last year.
Did you know if you took all of the macrumors members and stretched them end to end, it would reach across the united states.... think about it.
Did you know 2.0 from 2007.
Yes, e posting something ancient like this? What has time come to?
It is a really good thought-sparker, though.
Very cool! I liked it a lot!
I posted this in the forums a while back and I'm still blown away by it.
I think that's the human ego talking.
That's like saying, "I can't believe the Earth isn't the centre of the universe."
In 30 years, you'll be laughing at yourself for ever saying that about the brain.
Not if the recession carries on.. ha ha ha
ok poor jokes aside, no computer will ever be able to dream, never be able to... imagine, and as Einstein said: Imagination is more important than knowledge.
as a Coloradoan, I take pride this was made in Colorado lol
The Singularity is near.
