Re: Thoughts for ships

It's a matter of what we are using it for. With the internet, websites are restricted by bandwidth, and optimized for low latency across a wide variety of systems, so there is no real pressure there, and that's probably the main use for personal computers these days. Even with 3D games, there are di...

Re: Thoughts for ships

I don't know about physical limitations, but memory consumption simply hasn't necessitated it to begin with. You can buy 16GB ram sticks (64GB sticks are available in the server market), and most computers have at least 2-4 ram slots, yet most computers sold have 8-16GB of ram. Most of that extra ra...

Re: Breaking Up the United States

Separate but equal is a contradiction in terms. If you are arguing people should be kept separate, you are arguing that they are different in some way and thus not equal. If you believe everyone is equal, then there is no good argument for separating people based on arbitrary characteristics like ra...

I mean, that doesn't say it's just because it's cheaper, that's talking about things like planned obsolescence - it's not cheaper to do it this way, but it's simply more profitable to make lower quality appliances since it will be years before customers know it's junk, and they might even move befor...

Most change is going to be gradual - we aren't going to build a new house, but we may create robot that crawls in between the walls, and lays new wiring instead of trying to thread it through.

None of these tasks seem particularly well suited for an AI to do. And this is probably about as simple as it gets from a pluming perspective.
