I wonder if you can’t just put up touch screen in the store and let local dealers and residents advertise on it.
Since we have touch screens you can make the ads interactive with different sections or sub categories. That is. If you want to look at apartments, the local tailor or second hand stuff. You just touch different categories.
With a common central web site for approved ads. I think this could work. That is the startup idea.
A modern billboard for the locals with central approved ads.
I got a kinda wonderful idea. Inspired by Gmic -Solidify filter found in GIMP image software. With that one can repair an image from very few pixels scattered randomly over the image.
Apply that to machine learning or AI. What if you call the pixels knowledge. It could then be possible to fill in the gaps in the knowledge with only a few percent of knowledge that you know.
My lightbulb moment.
I speculate further that knowledge can inspire knowledge. Then you can use any historic information there is. That is. Even if you are looking for physics information. Other seemingly non related knowledge from other fields could generate good inspiration data for generation.
Just some little information that is known
Calculate what the rest might sound or look like. The Gmic Solidify filter.
If you can generate song lyrics with machine learning. Would it be possible to generate a collection of sentences that together sounds like philosophy?
The idea is to use this as inspiration for ideas.
I guess the training text need to have a lot of information. Maybe from thin books.
This was just an idea. That maybe we can use machine learning to augment our brain a little.
Here is an example of a misguided philosophy statement I found on the Internet. ”Before You Can Save Others, You Must Save Yourself”
Its about the notion that you can’t expect others to save you, you have to save yourself. First.
My answer to this is that. Don’t wait to save others. Even if there is an infinitesimal chance that they would return the favor. With Internet and a global world. Saving millions will increase your chances dramatically.
I guess that one can take advantage of machine learning in early prototype construction. The idea is to make the prototype smart from the very beginning. So for instance. If a mechanism is controlling pressure then replace that with a machine learned algorithm.
Then you have to figure out how the software can help you in improving your prototype. I wrote before that maybe machine learning can be used to recognize cause and effect. I think something like that could be used.
So for a 4d smart prototype it would then indicate how to self-evolve. Then you alternate between improving the prototype physically and running the tests.
I wonder. To solve some of the hardest problems in physics. I wonder if there is a way to apply the hardest to understand bunch of complicated rules we have. What I mean is. Could there exist something like physics imagination.
So the idea is that there exist some kind of solution finding methods. Which could be recognized as physics imagination.
By machine learning I mean the recognition and the generation ability. Like in the below photo. The Machine learning algorithm I imagine could recognize that it is a house and generate a plausible non pixelized image.
Generally for data streams. Perhaps a two layered approach could work. Where the first layer is more probability dependent. If that fails another deterministic algorithm is used. This way you have something like Lossy Error Correcting Code with a quality variable.
I speculated before in a blog post that eyes evolved already in the deep sea. Detecting sufficiently bright spots in otherwise dark surrounding. I guess this little information was what a primitive recognition biology could handle.
Similarly I wonder if now that we can develop artificial neural networks. That maybe we can take advantage of this in making sense of the universe and its stars and galaxies.
So the idea is. Is it possible to evolve an artificially sensory organ that feels the universe? This from the telescope data that we can obtain.
Although much exists in Wikipedia. I find that you can learn a lot when you let yourself get inspired by simple word combinations.
The trick is not to let yourself down thinking. This can not exist. Someone else can get inspired and figure out something important.
So I guessed that maybe there exist something like a Pi room. From what I know Pi is a constant. A room is a container and a container is kind of a set. Thats good enough for making a Pi room a potential rewarding guess.
If there exist a set that is like a room. Then maybe it can be an on/off set. That is if the room has a door.
So from this I speculate that maybe there exist on and off sets.
I assume everywhere where living conditions are hard you find men and women sewing.
To improve their standard of living. Why not make use of the engineering skills here and over there. What I mean is that. If you have a low power sewing machine. The people could increase their production. Given the shortage of electricity.
So the idea is to provide engineer help.
I cant figure out a cheap solar ready construction that would solve this. But maybe a 3D Printer Sewing Machine for patterns could generate some interest.
Further I wonder if there exists more sewing machine innovations. Maybe you can have two needles where one is tilted. So that you only need a mechanism above the fabric.
I wonder if the same idea could be made to work for the long term unemployed as well.
With this you let the long term unemployed get experience that is more like real work. I think online training and work experience generating small jobs could be beneficial. This in contrast to “praktik”.
Since you can transmit energy much more easy using an alternating current I wonder if one could construct an alternating peltier element by switching the semi-conductors of N and P type and the current.
I wonder if there could be a workable idea here or something.
The idea is that one could perhaps train locals in making caravans. Like a startup. I’m guessing here but I think making the homes mobile will not set the cost of the them rising beyond the income the target areas.
People need homes. Even if they are not the regular apartments. Caravans could serve a purpose.
If for any reason your safer living somewhere else. Because of the weather like flooding. A movable caravan would serve a purpose. Especially in the Philippines.
I bought a simple D10cm USB fan some time ago. I was surprised at the air flow from this rather cheap high quality fan was so good. At times when the heat is to high. A fan is absolutely necessary.
Since there exist larger diameter fans. From 10,13 to 18 cm. I wonder if they could be used in emergency situations. For field hospital like situations. Where there is no access to reliable electricity. These fans can run on a limited amount of solar power. Rated at 2.5watts 0.5A 5V. I could have 3x18cm USB fans on separate powerbanks. Thats a 54cm fan on battery power.
As a livelihood starter why not assemble a flower growing kit? Then to generate interest and keep customers coming to your store. A modern approach to this would be to make online instructional videos.
This means people can come to your store and ask questions in person.
If there is no internet access in your area. You can still make videos and sell them offline. This using a simple Wifi transfer application from the smartphone or PC to the customers smartphone.
I assume something like this will keep customers coming for the flowers, the offline videos and the possibility for in person questions.
Africa is on the way up in the world. For this positive trend to continue Africa has to lead in finding smart ways to handle conflicts.
Sanctions could be an answer. Definitely not military action which could lead to war. Realizing education is a way forward is equally important as realizing peaceful action is actually pretty sustainable.
