Computing Generations II, 5/9/2008, 3:00 pm
Reminder from: Artificial-Awakening Yahoo! Group Title: Computing Generations II Date: Friday May 9, 2008 Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm Repeats: This event repeats every year. Notes: The Fourth Generation (1975) is typified by the use of
microprocessors-devices where the entire arithmetic-logic and
control units of a computer is contained on one small chip. The
power of these devices have been described by "Moore's Law," which
states that their processing speed will double every eighteen months.
The Fifth Generation Postmail Switzerland wanted to introduce a system of sequenzing to sort letters which were to deliver, however capacity of those sequence machines was smaller than the amount of letters received and today human beings do the machines sequenzing work.
The sixt Generation is yet to be fully defined. One aspect of it
is "artificial intelligence" where computers demonstrate more and
more of the higher level functions of human intelligence. The extent
to which computers can simulate the capabilities of the human mind
is yet to be determined and will be a fascinating area to observe in
the coming years.
