Tomorrow’s AI Helper, Today
October 22nd, 2016

Picture this; you leave work and stop at a coffee shop on the way to the bus stop. You’ve in the queue when your mobile beeps. When you answer, Maia’s familiar voice cheerily says ‘hey, you know if you drink coffee after 3pm you won’t sleep, and you’ve got that early meeting tomorrow’.

Super Power
April 13th, 2017

As the Wikipedia page on Tesla coils puts it, ‘large systems can deliver higher energy, potentially lethal, repetitive high-voltage capacitor discharges from their top terminals’. A large coil can generate up to half a million volts, and as any museum tour guide that operates a Tesla coil will tell you, the arcs will destroy electronic equipment, coils can catch fire if they’re run for too long and they’re usually housed inside a Faraday cage (the same thing that stops microwaves leaking out of your microwave oven).

August 1st, 2002

Unless you’re talking film editing or high-end 3D rendering, computer software doesn’t come as RAM hungry as Photoshop. On a brand new G4 or Pentium III it was like lightning, but on the original Pentiums and Power Macs plenty of us are still saddled with, it was fraught with twitchy, irritating delays.

Worth 1000 Words

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is one of those funny technologies … a fantastic idea but not half as useful as you think it’s going to be, a bit like digital TV or Matrix sequels.
