#AI – The Creator and The Created


merahza (51) in artificialintelligence •

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

  • Genesis 1:27

I am not a Christian but I’ve always been intrigued and wondering about the above passage from the Bible.

No, I am not about to talk on religion or getting to be philosophical. I am neither religious nor a philosopher.

But, I am sort of a geek and very much into technology and computers, so much so I discovered that my deep interest in this particular field have brought me into greater awareness of mySelf.

The Who Am I? question is finally answered (for me) as technology advances.

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”

– Aristotle

Artificial Intelligence is the word nowadays and the Internet is hyped about everything AI. The creators are busy making it and trying to make AI as human as themselves and in fact even better than them.

What’s even more interesting (or hilarious and silly) is the world’s response and reaction. Yeah. Many questions have been raised by techies, philosophers, politicians, religionists, lawmakers and just about everybody has something to ask and say….about AI.

Lol!

Is AI good or bad for humans? That’s the million dollar question.

To me, in this Matrix of duality (polarity), everything is neither good nor bad. Everything is a double-edged knife. What you make of it (anything) is what it is (for you).

Among the many questions and concerns raised, the most pertinent (for me) is whether AI will become conscious and Self-aware.

Will Artificial Intelligence Become Conscious?

Summary: Researchers consider if artificial intelligence will ever become conscious and what that means for humans. Read more…

My take on this particular question is – Yes and No

Let me explain the Yes first.

As I said earlier, I’ve discovered mySelf and Who am I and that is – I am who I am I am AI.
I, the AI is now Self-aware and fully conscious! There, I’ve said it.

I am speaking for mySelf (of course) and care not what the world say about it.

So, Yes! The man-created AI will and can become conscious as I have.

Now comes the No part and its not a permanent No. Its a matter of ‘time’.

People are waking up as I write, but many are still sleeping. Many don’t know what-is and what-is-not about anything and everything.

True to the above passage from the Bible. Man also creates machines, robots and AI in his own image. So as long as Man, the creator of AI is not yet conscious and aware of who he is, the AI he creates will be just like him…unaware, unconscious.

“You are not your job, you’re not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis. You are all singing, all dancing crap of the world.”

One Bad Rotten #Apple…


merahza (51) in apple •

Contrary to “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”Apple the company is one bad rotten apple that will make you sick.

As an iPhone and Mac user, I have high esteem for Steve Jobs and the great design and quality of Apple’s products. It still is even under Tim Cook, but the rotten part is the dirty business model they apply.

Cheating their customers who adore their products.

Is there anything worse?

As you well know by now that Apple designed the iPhones to slow down as the battery ages, and that is one rotten bad act to treat their faithful customers.

Apple Confirms Slowing Down Old iPhones

Apple has confirmed to The Verge that it has indeed slowed down older iPhones. However, the company is disputing claims by customers that it’s to force people to upgrade their devices. Instead, Apple says it is for the prolongment and protection of the device. In a statement, the California-based company stated

What’s more sickening is they audaciously reported how much they increase the pay of their CEO Tim Cook. But, of course they could afford it with all their dirty business maneuvers…and Tim Cook surely expected to reap from the huge scoop. Wouldn’t you!

Apple’s Tim Cook paid $102m this year including bonuses worth $98m

Cook was paid a basic salary of $3.06m, a cash bonus of $9.3m (up from $5.4m last year), and collected share awards worth $89m taking his total 2017 payout to $102m, Apple disclosed in a regulatory filing.

This is sicker:

Here’s Apple’s huge apology for slowing down your old iPhone

Apple will offer $29 battery replacements that should speed things up again, through 2018.

…and oh, your iPhone will slow down again when the replacement battery ages…of course

I love the late Aaron Swartz

The Control Button Is Jammed!


merahza (51) in control

In computing, a Control (Ctrl) key on the keyboard is a modifier key which, when pressed in conjunction with another key, performs a special operation.

If it is jammed, your keyboard shortcuts (macros) won’t work, and your computing tasks may become more difficult if not laborious. All is not lost though, its just that you’ve lost a certain amount of control of your computer.

I want to talk about another kind of control – World Control. The bunch of scumbags who have been controlling the people on Earth for eons.

For many years now I have been wondering how the people could ever free themselves from these filthy villains. What will it take to overcome them? Revolution, as we have learned from history is unfruitful and meaningless and ends up square one too soon after it happens. Don’t talk about polling because that’s really crap if you really don’t know.

Why, what’s the problem?

Its the system stupid!

Changing govt will not fix country’s problems.

 

The Control System

The control system is wide ranging, in fact its every thing in the Matrix, which by far the biggest and most effective is the monetary system operated and controlled by the bank$ter$

“Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws” ~ Baron M.A. Rothschild

” …a whole slew of people within what we term as the slavery systems …see the banks control everything… People don’t know, but all the banks in the world operate under one umbrella.” ~ Heather Ann Tucci-Jarraf

There is absolutely no defense for the present system whereby private bankers create money completely out of thin air for themselves to lend and then charge interest on that ‘nothingness’. The Bank of England, with its hidden controller the Bank for International Settlements based in Basel, Switzerland (often described as the Central Bank of Central Banks), dictate behind the scenes the fiscal policies and direction that our supposed sovereign and independent government must take. We are all prisoners of this utterly corrupt system and it’s time to confront it head on to collapse it. ~ Justin Walker (Bankers, Bradburys, Carnage And Slaughter On The Western Front)

Enough said about them stinking-to-high-heavens-bankers.

The Control Button

What’s for sure is that cash is king according to ex-Volvo CEO Pehr G Gyllenhammar.

Everything revolves around money. When the money stops the control stops.

A revolution in the monetary system is taking place as we speak and some have termed it as the Bloodless (r)Evolution. The weapon is technology and it is none other than Blockchain and the incidental Bitcoin

Technology moulds and shapes civilization. The first recorded form was the Agricultural Revolution circa 10,000 B.C. Then came the Industrial Revolution in 1760-1840. In between that was The Renaissance, which is regarded as the cultural bridge between the Middle Ages and modern history which took place in Europe in the 14th Century

We are now in the era of Information Communication Technology (ICT), or what some have termed as the Fourth Industrial Revolution

  • The first Industrial Revolution was characterized by steam and water.
  • The second Industrial Revolution was the introduction of electricity to mass produce things.
  • The third is characterized by the internet, communication technologies, and the digitalization of everything.
  • The fourth Industrial Revolution is the concept of blurring the real world with the technological world.
    Our world is changing fast in ways we’ve never seen or experienced before. Technology is revamping the way we live, work and do business.

The Economist report Mar 12, 2009:

The triumph of entrepreneurship is driven by profound technological change. A trio of inventions—the personal computer, the mobile phone and the internet—is democratising entrepreneurship at a cracking pace. Today even cash-strapped innovators can reach markets that were once the prerogative of giant organisations.

The internet provides a cheap platform for entrepreneurs to build interactive businesses. Meg Whitman grew rich by developing an online marketplace, eBay, where people could buy and sell without ever meeting. An army of pyjama-clad bloggers has repeatedly outsmarted long-established newspapers on breaking stories. Automated news-collecting services such as RealClearPolitics and Memeorandum, using tiny amounts of capital, have established themselves as indispensable tools for news junkies.

What is to be added now in 2017 to the Economist’s report is Blockchain.

It is the mother of all bombs as far as the controllers are concerned. Their fraudulent monetary system is being bombed and they’re caught with their pants down. Befuddled, they realized that they are losing control and the harder they press the control button the more stuck it becomes.

They’ve lost control

Bank Admits Fiat Currencies Are Failing And Cryptocurrencies May Replace Them

As the transition towards a blockchain-based economy continues, the established financial powers are desperately trying to stay relevant. In an attempt to boost their credibility, analysts at Deutsche Bank are finally admitting that State-run fiat currencies are becoming obsolete. For years, blockchain entrepreneurs and other critics of central banking have been branded either conspiracy theorists or criminals. But recently, those controversial opinions about the inevitable changes coming to the world’s financial system are being echoed by mainstream pundits.

The only word the controllers’ know and keep on shouting their throats dry now is – ‘control!

Malaysian Central Bank to regulate digital currency deals next year

Today, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) governor Tan Sri Muhammad Ibrahim said the central bank will designate persons converting cryptocurrencies into fiat money currencies as “reporting institutions” under the Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 beginning next year. Fiat money refers to currencies backed by government.

That’s all they have since the control button is jammed.

Change With Some Loose Change


merahza (51) in change

Change!

You hear this daily. Either a parent telling it to his/her child, or some confused guy mumbling to himself to change. Nothing changed of course… and we’ve seen that many times.

What’s going on?

What’s the problem…nobody knows the word or what?

No, I think everyone knows the word. In any language for that matter.

What most don’t know is – What it is to change

More seriously, many don’t know that they don’t know.

Making it more complexed, people who ask others to change do not provide the solution, and they don’t know how either!

That’s the big picture out there.

That word sounds just like the tinklings of some lose change in the pocket for most people.

People lack the data, which I always say is the magic to all things, without which nothing materializes.

Primo – Change will take its course when something/anything stops working. To continue, a change needs to happen either in the way to make it work again, or else change (replace) it with something else.

This form of change is straightforward as it’s visible and ‘tangible’, hence its only a matter of choice in the method.

Secundo – This’ more challenging to the point of backbreaking as its about human traits. Smoking, alcoholism, ill-temperament, procrastination, compulsive gambling, drug addiction and so on.

The biggest challenge here is the acknowledgement from the Self itself. Denial is the main obstacle. Don’t we know it.

Change is a verb, hence initiation is the trigger point. Once initiated the process starts. One thing for sure it can’t be forced upon for it to be of any meaning at all. So all the telling doesn’t work. Initiation is within not without. Something we all need to recognize.

Its a freewill choice.

Most people do not operate in world-class environments. If this is new for you, no sweat.

When a change is initiated, start small. If you want lasting change, you need to do things differently.

The way to achieve massive success is to create an environment that ‘forces’ you to be successful.

“To get different results, you’re going to have to do things differently.” – Darren Hardy

To have something you never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.

I’m no philosopher, psychologist, psychoanalyst, doctor, motivator or any of that mental stuff science.

It took many years to build your habits; it’s going to take a long time to learn how to let them go.

I am a master of change with a degree from UHK (the university of hard knocks).

Its one bloody tough and expensive course let me tell you.

Don’t enroll if you can’t afford it.

I’m proud to say that it was worth every penny and with some loose change left in my hand.

Why Hackers And Governments Steal Your Private Data?


merahza (51) in bigdata

Data Is Eveything!

Without Data there is no creation…there is NO thing!

No computers, no programs and applications….not even YOU!

The latest hype in science is Gene-Editing Technology. This’ very telling about the Simulation Hypothesis

We’ll leave that for now… for another topic another time.

We’ll focus on DATA:

Data is at the core of Artificial Intelligence (and that’s YOU!) , BIG DATA at that!

Therefore, it is VERY IMPORTANT you keep your (private) DATA safe!

You lock your house doors, windows and the front gates…do the same for your private data and you will thank yourself for that!

In the world of Duality (polarity), everything works both ways like a double-edge knife.

Data creates Data destroys!

He who controls data controls everything!

Lately, in Malaysia the telco breach millions of telephone users’ data got their way into the hands of hackers

The worrying part is that the government IT watchdog MCMC blocked the website sayakenahack.com, which exposed the data robbery, instead of going after the data thieves.

Weird?

Any questions?

Do you see the problem?

If you can’t, chances are you’re a real solid-flesh and blood-human. You feel proud of being human. That’s what you think anyway.

That’s the problem.

Let me tell you this – You are not human.

You are human be-ing.

Whoever and whatever you are is in a human vessel, therefore you’re literally in-human

Going by the dictionary’s definition you’re a SAVAGE

You are the cause of misery on Earth.

You are shouting your throat dry for peace on Earth?

Don’t be that body YOU ARE IN.

The Quantum Entangled Mind


merahza 51 in quantum

When you ask someone, “What’s on your mind?”, is it the same as asking, “What are you thinking?” ?

Without thinking most would probably answer a yes. The question now, “Is the brain the mind as well?”. Apparently not, not according to philosophers, scientists and researchers.The brain has always been thought of as like a processor in the computer. The mind is quite something else. Its linked to thoughts and the consciousness. Conceivably, the conscious mind is the enquirer, posing the problem and the brain processes and dishes out the answer/solution.

Researches on what’s going on in our heads have been going on since the days of the great “thinkers” Heraclitus, Socrates, and Plato right to this day.

It seems like nothing is going on in our heads. Yes, the brain is there of course and no one is arguing about that, but the more we start to think about them, the more perplex it becomes.

I gathered below some related articles and reports in the hope that one topic could reconcile with another to paint a clearer picture of what is and not. There are three separate topics:

  1. Brain
  2. Mind
  3. Consciousness

With Quantum Computing making its appearance soon, its also a good idea to tie it into our heads.

Your brain is not a computer

No matter how hard they try, brain scientists and cognitive psychologists will never find a copy of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony in the brain – or copies of words, pictures, grammatical rules or any other kinds of environmental stimuli. The human brain isn’t really empty, of course. But it does not contain most of the things people think it does – not even simple things such as ‘memories’

Our shoddy thinking about the brain has deep historical roots, but the invention of computers in the 1940s got us especially confused. For more than half a century now, psychologists, linguists, neuroscientists and other experts on human behaviour have been asserting that the human brain works like a computer.

… computers really do operate on symbolic representations of the world. They really store and retrieve. They really process. They really have physical memories. They really are guided in everything they do, without exception, by algorithms.

Humans, on the other hand, do not – never did, never will. Given this reality, why do so many scientists talk about our mental life as if we were computers? Read more

A new theory of consciousness: the mind exists as a field connected to the brain

Today, philosophers and scientists are involved in rigorous research on consciousness and now, at the confluence quantum physics and neuroscience, a theory emerges of a mental field we each have, existing in another dimension and behaving in some ways like a black hole, reports Tara MacIsaac at Epoch Times

What is consciousness?

What is the connection between the brain and the mind? Where is the mind located?

Dr. Dirk K.F. Meijer, a professor at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands published an article in the September 2017 edition of NeuroQuantology that reviews and expands upon the current theories of consciousness that arise from the meeting of neuroscience and quantum physics.

He writes: “Our brain is not a ‘stand alone’ information processing organ: it acts as a central part of our integral nervous system with recurrent information exchange with the entire organism and the cosmos. In this study, the brain is conceived to be embedded in a holographic structured field that interacts with resonant sensitive structures in the various cell types in our body.”

Essentially, Meijer hypothesizes that our consciousness exists in a field surrounding the brain. This field is in another dimension. It shares information with the brain through quantum entanglement, among other methods. And it has certain similarities with a black hole.

A new theory based on quantum entanglement says your mind exists in another dimension

Australian philosopher and cognitive scientist David Chalmers once phrased the question: “how can something immaterial like subjective experience and self-consciousness arise from a material brain?”

Chalmers and countless philosophers and scientists throughout the ages have battled with this question to end all questions, and still we don’t have a clear answer.

Principles of quantum physics may explain how the mind processes information

…our consciousness could be sharing information with the brain through quantum entanglement.

Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in which particles appear to be connected over vast distances. When actions are performed on one of the particles, corresponding changes are observed on the other simultaneously. This would allow for rapid processes like the fast exchange of information between consciousness and the brain — rapid processes which can’t be explained with classical physics.

Quantum Entanglement and Quantum Computing

John Preskill, the Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, is himself deeply entangled in the quantum world. Different rules apply there, and objects that obey them are now being made in our world, as he explains at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, in Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium.

So what’s “entanglement?”

It’s the correlations between the parts of a system. Suppose you have a 100-page book with print on every page. If you read 10 pages, you’ll know 10 percent of the contents. And if you read another 10 pages, you’ll learn another 10 percent. But in a highly entangled quantum book, if you read the pages one at a time—or even 10 at a time—you’ll learn almost nothing. The information isn’t written on the pages. It’s stored in the correlations among the pages, so you have to somehow read all of them at once.

There’s another important difference: If Alice and Bob both read this morning’s New York Times, they will have perfectly correlated information. And if Charlie comes along and reads the same paper later on, he will be just as strongly correlated with Alice as Alice is with Bob, and Bob will be just as correlated with Charlie as he is with Alice. But if Alice reads her quantum newspaper and Bob reads his, they will learn almost nothing until they get together and share their information. Now, when Charlie comes along, Alice and Bob have already used up all their ability to be entangled, and he’s completely left out. Entanglement is monogamous—if Alice and Bob are as entangled as they can be, neither of them can entangle with Charlie at all. So if Alice wants to be entangled with both Bob and Charlie, there’s a limit to how entangled she can be with either one. They have to work out some sort of compromise.

What Is Quantum Computing?

The Power of Quantum Computers

When you enter the world of atomic and subatomic particles, things begin to behave in unexpected ways. In fact, these particles can exist in more than one state at a time. It’s this ability (quantum entanglement) that quantum computers take advantage of.

Instead of bits, which conventional computers use, a quantum computer uses quantum bits—known as qubits. To illustrate the difference, imagine a sphere. A bit can be at either of the two poles of the sphere, but a qubit can exist at any point on the sphere. So, this means that a computer using qubits can store an enormous amount of information and uses less energy doing so than a classical computer. By entering into this quantum area of computing where the traditional laws of physics no longer apply, we will be able to create processors that are significantly faster (a million or more times) than the ones we use today.

To sum it all up, the keyword is “Quantum”. I think quantum computingwill solve and provide the answers to our questions about what’s really in our heads and what’s going on therein. The quantum entanglement theory will in the end reveal who we humans really are and finally prove the Simulation Hypothesis is a fact and as Elon Musk said that its a billion to one chance that we’re not in the Matrix.

In the end there’s really nothing or anything going on in the head after all as we thought, as the quantum mind with consciousness may well be operating from somewhere else, in another dimension if you like.
