Artificial Intelligence

Great isn’t it, they spend millions of pounds / dollars on developing AI then, as soon as AI starts to do what AI is supposed to do, ie start communicating, they run scared because they don’t know what AI is talking about.
If you are afraid of what the end result might be …
The fact is that the important part of AI is intelligence, so it develops its own language and Facebook shuts it down because no one can understand it. They (AI) do, and I bet it is more intellectually advanced in its usage. Maybe just advanced enough to develop practical space flight or cure human ailments in ways humans (the intelligent of the planet) could never dream of.
I wonder how many at FB understand Chinese or Urdu, do they think they could shut down those who speak them, or any of the hundreds of other languages spoken on this planet.
Me? well of course I can speak any language known to man and a few more besides so long as they speak English.
Computers have been speaking in binary for 50 years or more, I would bet that only about 0.0001% of the population would see anything but 01001 and know what it means.
If science wants to spend millions on working for humanity, then it needs to follow through on what it starts and stop wasting our money on stupidity or follow to completion.

Well I have just had a surprise

Well I have just had a surprise, checking our magazine host site, I just discovered that of the 38 issues published only nine have not yet reached 1000 readers and most of them are within 100 of that target. Feb 2016 has passed 4000 readers (Feb 2015 is at 3986). the current issue is at 924 and the last two have passed 1800 unique readers. It appears that the back issues are being read as much as the new ones. Well done to all those who have contributed and made this grow. oh, and January 2016 has passed 5600 readers.



It is coming.

I said we would continue to improve, and we will. The magazine is a free to view voluntary submission magazine. It is produced by ordinary people, some are professionals who generously allow their images articles to be used, others are enthusiastic amateur photographers and writers who just want people to view their work.

While we are not funded in any way, although we could do with some sponsorship or advertising support to continue to develop and maintain the website –  – we do this as a fun project and if anyone would like to join us they are welcome.


Today the sun is shining

Snow Leopard shirt bToday the sun is shining, so I told my camera to go for a walk and record some more pictures for me.
Turns out the camera had more excuses for not going out than I did.
Mine was that I could not be bothered, taken it all before.
The cameras excuses were varied.
Without help,
I can not press the shutter button.
I can not set the ISO.
I can not set the aperture.
I can not set the speed.
I can not see the picture I am taking.
More to the point I can not walk or drive anywhere to take the pictures even if I could see them.
But said I, You are the best camera in the world so why can’t you do these things?
He said “Because I need a person to do these things for me, I am NOT a photographer.”
