Who knows, countries might be fighting in cyberspace wars in 100 years? Penetrating the core of their intelligence and locking down their computer systems.
Sadly, intelligence cannot be created/programmed (at least with our current technology). AI doesn`t count because it`s an algorithm.
Oh;Percent of English Speaking people per country:
United States: 89.33%China: 0.77%India: 10.66%
Fabricated facts FTL.
You took the fact in the wrong direction. By the most english speaking country in the world it meant population. While the United states is 89% the US population is roughly 305,500,00 (rounded down). China`s is 1.3 billion. So taking the numbers into hand.
89% of 305.5 million is 271,895,000 english speaking people.
.77% of 1.3 billion is 10,010,000.
This number is expected to skyrocket in the next decade with english becoming the majority language for world trade.Besides that wikipedia fact sheet is out of date by 9 years. the data is from 2000.
The facts aren`t false they`re predicted. Stop screaming "FALSE INTRANETZ!!"
Computers can perform arithmetic using very little processing power, and some humans may struggle at doing that.
On the other hand, humans can recognize faces, which is extremely complex for a machine to do.
Basically, its apples and oranges. Computers are already better at some things, and probably won`t be completely better for a very long time.
im going to continue on habbazoot. and this is just fyi.
when ice melts, it melts from the inside first, OK? so what happends is that greenland becomes a giant pool, when the walls PHAIL, it will unleash massive amounts of water into the ocean, probably freezing down the golf stream. this means big time ice age for Norway.
I just hope they don`t become smarter...I`ll be freaked out if they do one day.
"I was hoping it would say something about the fact that Ice displaces the exact same amount of water that it contains, so if the ice caps melted it would have absolutely no effect on the Earth`s water level."
This is why I`m confused that everyone is panicking about the ice caps melting. >_<
Anyways, awesome video. I love random (or non-random) facts.
What`s funny about the test message comment is I`ve never text messaged once in my life.
That`s absolutely terrible logic. Tell that to Kasparov after Deep Blue beat the poo out of him in a top human vs. top computer chess match in the early 2000`s, or to scientists who rely on machines to present incredibly complex mathematical models to them in a fraction of the time they could do it themselves.

Start the countdown.
You can fertilize your lawn with used motor oil!
an exabyte is 1*10^18 bytes, not 1*10^19
of course, there is the whole 1024 deal when talking about bytes. its still 18 tho, not 19.
since most will not grasp his post fully:
Summary:Its not the speed, its the ability.
We can easily build a computer with far more processing power than a human. HOWEVER, the "operating system" that "runs" in our brain would be extremely superior to that of the one on the computer. Our mind has much more potential than that of the computer. The computer runs off numbers and equations at a seemingly impossilbe rate, but thats all it can do, run a bunch of numbers.
I can see where some of you are getting confused, and this cleared it up a little for me as well to be honest.
wow you just stated 2 myths in your little "theory".Atlantis has never existed, and the 2012 thing... just freakin wow.
if you seriously believe in 2012, i have a VERY good argument against it (yet its also for it, hard to explain). However, i refuse to argue on IAB as most mods will consider it spam since it does not contribute in any way.--------------------That video was 50% bull at least.dont you guys remember those videos that we all laugh at now? the ones that came from anything earlier than 1999?I mean, we have made the dumbest predictions before. I`m sure a lot of you remember all the people that went craz
i) That was not what was claimed.ii) That cannot be categorically stated as true.
i) They were talking about projected raw processing power of a computer compared with estimated raw processing power of a human brain. Not intelligence - raw processing power. Which doesn`t mean as much as people might think. The main strength of the human brain is its awesome degree of parallelism, not the sum of the processing power of each neuron.
ii) We do not know what can cause intelligence, so how can you state with certainty that humans cannot build a machine more intelligent than humans? Humans can build machines far superior to humans in many ways - how can you be sure that particular way is impossible?
composed of lies.
Was it made to scare people?
lol totally agree Blacksun1212!
Did you download it legally?
I`ll ignore the blaring grammatical error there and point out the fact that in order to know something like that, they would have to be able to see into the future. They are stating their own [flawed] predictions as if they are scientific facts.
That "fact" and about 1/2 of the "facts" in that video are total bullpoo. The video is basically speculation/conspiracy theory.
And that thing about learning new information now compared to the 1800`s... How can they measure information? What imaginary unit of measurement did they invent for information?
All it is it propaganda.
The only scary thing in that video is the thing about how the Chinese and Indians are uber-breeding like crazy in order to take over the world.
What does it mean? Mankind will not be able to sustain an exponential growth and a catastrophic event will wipe out 99.9% of humanity (in 2012 probably). The remnants of mankind will be thrown back to the stoneage and mankind`s previous advancement will become just a myth. This has happened before (Atlantis) and will happen again.
My favourite quote from The Hitchhiker`s Guide to the Galaxy: "There is a theory which states that if anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened."
what was the other half? Oh yeah, all the killing.
I know right :-?
If that is all that defines humanity, falibility, I weep.
A faraday cage does not protect directly against magnetism, it protects against electricity, which can cause magnetism.
Spermicide does not kill children, even though children come from sperm. Faraday cages do not prevent large levels of magnetism, even though they come from electricity.
Cue arguments like "But I could strangle a kid with a condom". Yes, yes you could, feel free to pass large electromagnets over your computer. Preferably ones from an old fashioned stereo system.
Oh and at the it one I was sooo enxpecting it to say: That means./........YOUR FCUCKED
yea, it was so crule to leave us all hangging like that -.-
DOOMED I SAID
Tell me!!! DD:
i thought a faraday cage was for transfering electricity around an object not an magnetic pulse so wouldnt it still do the damage"
Electricity creates a magnetic pulse >.< grade 9 science
i thought a faraday cage was for transfering electricity around an object not an magnetic pulse so wouldnt it still do the damage
If they had internet 50 years ago, they`d have something like this for that time as well.
Just because we Realize it, doesn`t mean it hasn`t been happening.
Also, I have issues with statistics like this because they`re really narrow.
What if a magnetic flare from the Sun whipes out all data on planet Earth?
Well, then I`m pretty positive that in 2049, there won`t be a computer more powerful than the whole human race for a thousand bucks.
Please let it be like the Jetsons and not the Terminator :D
I don`t think I like the way I feel right now?
Esopillar: "Until computers can match the heuristic and reasoning capabilities we can, they won`t top us"
Define "top us"? Computers will never be human, not because they cannot be made to be so, but simply because humans will never see the point in making a computer that can be wrong, which is what a human is.
Humans can estimate/guess/rough it (yay) and be completely off the mark (boo). Why would we have a computer attached to anything important that could do that?
As far as I`m concerned, in that regard, computers already top us in many many many ways.
Not the greatest resolution, but it gets its point across. Also, I think it means "$1000- whatever current rate is".
But until computers can match the heuristic and reasoning capabilities we can, they won`t top us (hell, we shouldn`t make them that advanced until we can put some shades of gray in there, otherwise they might actually pull a Skynet/Matrix on us and decide they don`t need us anymore.
In 40, it`ll outmatch the population of Earth.
Then comes Skynet...
Anyway what more do we need technology to do in our day-to-day lives? We already can listen to music, browse the internet, call people, watch movies, all on our phones
It means the computation *speed*. For example, a computer can decipher things in days that would take humans years. In the future, a computer will be able to decipher things that humans could never do in 1000 lifetimes.
and my favorite thing to ponder of all:
imagine what all a turtle has seen happen. especially the turtles who live 200-300 years...
It was made last year.
At least this one didn`t exactly purport to have some kind of message it was trying to get across. I was expecting to say something along the lines of, "You`re government is lying to you" OR "Humanity sucks. buy a Mac".
Intelligence and computational power are very different.
It means that the statement has long since become out dates because when the phrase was coined 1 in a million would be no one like you. Now there is so many people in china, 1 in a million wouldn`t be that rare at all. Roughly 1300 copies in the country.
2049 seems like the time to be alive. ;pYou`d be running entire dimensions off a computer that powerful. <.<
The computers are going to uprise and kill us all!
DESTROY YOUR iPODS!!!!! THEY ARE SPIES!!!!!!!!!!
well ill take credit for some of those
computers are going the TAKE OVER TEH WORLD!
