The Economics of Autonomy

In ancient legend, there is a Creation story: in contemporary times, it is known as the first book of Moses called the book of Genesis. When God IS creating the world, Genesis (KJV) states, “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:3). According to legend, the 1st great Prophet, named Isaiah, told his faith to his friends, his people, and his enemies. Isaiah wrote, “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation” (Isaiah 12:2) A man called the Christ was crucified, then according to Roman Empire record, died, but according to Christian legend, rose again. In Christian tradition, Jesus the Christ stated Christians should conclude our prayers to God, our Father, this way: “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:13). Following Jesus of Nazareth, a New Testament writer,

Utilizing Media: A Response to Deepfakes

  Of the ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery), a magazine called Communication of the ACM's edition releases 1 month before its stated release month. In the latest edition, regarding March 2021, of Communications of the ACM , Column Editor, Susan J. Winter wrote Computing Ethics: What To Do About Deepfakes . Regarding Winter’s desire to halt or hinder illegal or unethical deepfakes, a video technology like wearing a full body masking suit, Winter wrote, “Here are three areas where technical experts can make positive contributions to the development of synthetic media technologies: education and media literacy, subject defense, and verification” (Winter, March, 2021). Winter was saying actions such as teaching and having disruptive technology knowledge, researching professionally, and proving concepts are parts of deepfake experts’ calculus. But this much work specializes such that entry level, junior, work will probably be offered to overqualified professionals. Technic

On Trust, Bias, and Privilege: my Response to 'Anti-Blackness is no glitch'

In Winter 2020, Stephanie T. Jones and Natalie Melo wrote ‘Anti-Blackness is no glitch’: The need for critical conversations within computer science education . Jones and Melo mentioned, “The conversation around and application of computer science often reinforces neoliberal ideals” (Jones, Melo, November 25, 2020, pg. 42). Jones and Melo were saying this: the computer science revolution and organizational IT network futuristic left-wing best standards access is telling. For Trust, I am Checking my Privilege But this is not excluding contemporary conversations: any futuristic conversation based on personal interpretation is not from ABBA, so it is not prophecy (NIV, 2 Peter 1:20). For your review, Peter wrote, "For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from [ABBA] as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit" (2 Peter 1:21). You, reader, can predict something shall happen, but prediction is uncertain: it is a terminating series ca

On the Topic of Domestic Graduate Students, I AM

Domestic Graduate Students In the September 2020 edition of Communications of the ACM , Moshe Y. Vardi wrote Where Have All the Domestic Graduate Students Gone . Vardi wrote, “Tech industry giants Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google were all founded by first- or second-generation immigrants” ( link ). As stated previously in another article I wrote, Vardi wrote that in the month of June during the year 2020 AD, President Trump suspended new work visas and banned tens of ten thousands of foreigners against establishing employment within the U.S.A.: this was temporary. On greater division was the Trump Administration ban against U.S. universities that were operating using international students within only online classes, but remain in the U.S.A. Vardi also spoke on behalf of the entire science and engineering community without a vote and said that I strongly object to this, but I believe my objection is an average one. Against the international community becoming formally anti-U.S.A., n

On Neuromorphic Chips: Advanced AI, Deep Learning, and Neural Network Computer Architecture

Neuromorphic Chips to Become Affordable In the August 2020 edition of Communications of the ACM , West Linn, OR, USA-based author and journalist, Samuel Greengard, wrote Neuromorphic Chips Take Shape . The available data Greengard had is the claim that a Caltech (The California Institute of Technology) professor invented this technology, neuromorphic chips. Greengard wrote, “The concept of a brain-like computing architecture, conceived in the late 1980s by California Institute of Technology professor Carver Mead, is suddenly taking shape” (Greengard, Aug 2020, p. 9). Since the date, today, is around forty years later, this technology has remained dormant, but not in the research, thus so recent advancements probably allowed neuromorphic chips to become affordable (With LTE capabilities, see current pricing of a standard productivity PC, an i5 Microsoft Surface Pro . With 3G capabilities, alternatively see the current pricing of a legacy, but GPU intensive PlayStation Vita . Safely Su

On the Secure Internet of Medical Things

The Internet and Telecom of Medical Things In the August 2020 Edition of Communications of the ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery), Chief Internet Evangelist at Google and 2012 AD to 2014 AD ACM president, Vinton G. Cerf, wrote On the Internet of Medical Things , a column regarding healthcare and the widespread availability of household Internet and Telecom technologies applicable to healthcare. Related to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, Cerf wrote that he experienced an unsettling doctor’s call because Cerf’s goal, a doctor analyzing his health, was rejected, but the offered alternative, a video consultation, was inadequate. Cerf wrote, “This led to the natural conclusion that remote detection would be helpful in these conditions” (Cerf, Aug 2020, p. 5). Cerf was saying this: he wanted a solution to the COVID-19 virus, but he had not planned an immediate solution to this contagion passing from one entity to another, so he ought to discuss solutions to this problem.
