... only is the particle the smallest light unit but it is a particle as well as a wave. In beams of light whether they are ordinary natural or artificial the photon waves will not be traveling together because they are not being emitted at exactly the same moment but instead at random short bursts. Even if the light is of a single frequency that statement would also be true. A laser is useful because it produces light that is not only of essentially a single frequency but also coherent, with the light waves all moving along in unison. Lasers ...

Can Computers Understand?

... John Searle addresses the point of the ability of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to understand, in Mind Brains, and Programs. His main argument is that because AI's are computers and computers have no thoughts of their own, they cannot understand. Any actions being performed to simulate behavior are confined by the programs available to the computer. He presents the example of a man linking Chinese characters and appearing to know the language, but in reality the man is just following the instructions given to him ( the progr ...

... fiction to them. However MULTICS proved more difficult than imagined to implement and Bell Labs withdrew from the project in 1969 as did General Electric, dropping out of the computer business altogether. One of the Bell Labs researchers (Ken Thompson) then decided to rewrite a stripped down version of MULTICS, initially as a hobby. He used a PDP-7 minicomputer that no was using and wrote the code in assembly. It was initially a stripped down, single user version of MULTICS but Thompson actually got the system to work and one of his colleagu ...

A New Technology

... 12 months." Using an iris-scanning ATM is just as easy as using a regular machine, van Naarden says. The computer uses three cameras to find and photograph your eye. The first two zero in on your eyes using a computerized facial template. The third camera takes a high-resolution photo of your eye, which the ATM then compares to a photo taken when you opened your bank account. If the two match, you can withdraw money. You won’t have to look into a viewfinder, or even open your eyes wider than normal. The cameras work at a range ...

Government Intervention On The Internet

... network, originally called Arconet, was developed and funded solely by and for the U.S. government. It was to be used in the event of a nuclear attack in order to keep communications lines open across the country by rerouting information through different servers across the country. Does this mean that the government owns the Internet, or is it no longer a tool limited by the powers that govern. Generalities such as these have sparked great debates within our nation's government. This paper will attempt to focus on two high profile et ...

Weizenbaum has visited Germany a few times, and says that he is amazed by the sights in Germany that appear routine to the country's citizens. For example he has witnessed the feeling that every German citizen lives to close to nuclear weapons storage facilities. And the threat of soviet attacks that they must live with everyday are uncomprehending. He says the United States is no more distant from catastrophe than the Germans, for he states that Americans experience of ...

History Of The Propeller

... airscrew, however, belongs to J.P. Paucton, a French mathematician. Paucton envisioned a flying machine that had two airscrews, one for propulsion and the other for sustaining flight. The idea of using an airscrew for propulsion was utilized during the late 1700’s to early 1800’s. Only after experimentation did the inventors conclude that more propulsive power could be obtained by merely straightening out the surface of the airscrew blades. Attempts to utilize the “straight blade” propeller were made by balloonists. These contraptio ...
