Chips With Everything – Learning from the Computation Game – [Work-in-Progress]

Introduction One way or another computers are ubiquitous in 21st century life. Everything has a chip in it, every device has some programming interface, – every game (or even every motor car it seems) has a “cheat” code, and the “Internet of Things” (IoT) is soon upon us. The pace of growth and change is mind-boggling, … Continue reading “Chips With Everything – Learning from the Computation Game – [Work-in-Progress]”

My thought process in the preceeding weeks was chaos / catastrophe / fuzzy / uncertainty / quanta / quantum-computing / … Continue reading “My Brief History of Zen”
