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.
I wrote a long time ago about the possibility of running a computer or mobile on a limited amount of solar panel.
Because it works pretty well using the smartphone as a screen for the raspberry pi 2. I thought I give it a go with a small 7watts solar battery charger.
I will try this setup tomorrow. No sun here in Sweden at this time though. Actually I thought the solar panel battery charger was broken. I assumed it would work with LED or cfl lights in the kitchen. It did not. Ok I got 0.25 Volts after placing it near the cfl. Not enough for charging. Which means it wont show up on the smartphone or even light up a light emitting diode. However with natural sunlight it worked just fine.
An easy way to power the pi2 and the phone would be to have two 5000mAh powerbanks. One for solar charging and one for power.
The same idea really but with low power electronics your not so vulnerable of power cuts. So for those with a bad power grid. Why not have a computer like the raspberry pi2 in hand. Then you could continue coding or doing some office work (LibreOffice) on the pi with just two powerbanks and a solar charger.
To promote Linux in general or your favorite Linux Distro. Why not create an emoticon series with the mascot or the logo as the star. It does not have to be a logo. Perhaps something that people could relate to like opensource could also work.
My guess is that everything you sense or think can generate feelings. Also since you base a lot of decisions on feelings generated in the brain. I wonder if this decision making enabler can be taken advantage of in computer applications.
So an important application is database search. Like when you google. Where you want to search through a lot of data fast. Then could not this search be enhanced by feelings. Computer feeling based guesses that makes the search much more accurate.
I assume this is possible since the feeling space is limited or rather small. That is. There are probably not a lot of very different feelings. If the computer knows the target feeling you want when you search then it can sort data faster. Much like sorting by color is faster than by object recognition. Also the selection will also be more accurate.
Another application could be the search for more life in the universe by adding a feeling component to the calculations. That is. Clustering the picture of the universe into different feelings.
So my idea is that you can enhance computing tasks by computerized feelings.
One easy way to do this would be to add something like a string of emoticons to your google search.
