Is oil next gold?

 

Oil is perhaps the most important resource available on this planet.

Many countries have oil fields and some countries also fight for oil fields by creating artificial islands.

In world war II Japan attacked pearl harbor, to destroy the oil reserves present there. Only because Britain was not able to import oil because of German U-boats it made a deal with USA ending some of the Britain’s exclusive colonial rights which then lead to independence of many nations. Wars have been fought for oil and also won with enough oils in winner nation’s belly.

So why oil is so much important ?

Answer is simple: A nation can’t function without it. If any of you reader’s have watched house of cards, you can remember that how just because of political conflict oil crisis started and lasted till demands were fulfilled.

Lets put it in a simple way, your country is planning to go on war with neighboring countries, what will be double checked by govt.?

  1. Do we have enough food?
  2. Do we have enough oil to fill our tanks and airplanes?
  3. and ‘x’ number of things.

But first two things are common. Our entire transportation (Which is heart of every country) will fail without oil. That’s why oil is most important thing on this planet. That’s why Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and other gulf countries saw such a development in such a short time, just by selling oil.

OPEC: Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries Decides when to cut oil supply when to flood markets with oil and so many more things related to oil. Russia isn’t the member because Russian Govt. will not let anyone decide when to sell Petroleum and when to not.

But any action that OPEC takes create a global impact, take a look at this news

As our Oil resources are getting scarce and if we don’t find any alternative energy resource then we are pushing world to the next war or perhaps to the next great depression. But Scientists are developing alternative energy resources and also improving existing ones and some people say that results are looking promising. But as long as our economy (World economy) fluctuates with fluctuating oil prices we will face any consequence associated with it.

 

Utopia?

In my previous blog-post I mentioned something about transcendence. Lets revise “Transcendence is existence or experience beyond normal or physical level.”. Lets talk about year, say 2030. Group of some scientists are celebrating their success. They have developed an AI with partial range of human … Continue reading Utopia?

Transcendence

šFor 130,000 years, our capacity to reason has remained unchanged. The combined intellect of the neuroscientists, mathematicians and… hackers… in this auditorium pales in comparison to the most basic A.I.

šOnce online, a sentient machine will quickly overcome the limits of biology. And in a short time, its analytic power will become greater than the collective intelligence of every person born in the history of the world.

šSo imagine such an entity with a full range of human emotion. Even self-awareness.

šSome scientists refer to this as “the Singularity.” I call it “Transcendence.“

-Dr. Will Caster

Transcendence(2014 film)

Transcendence ? What is this?

…….Exact Expression when we repeated dialogues of transcendence movie in our presentation just to give scope of AI. Actually our presentation started with this dialogue. Everybody was like ……. whaaaaaaaat?

  So Transcendence is existence or experience beyond normal or physical level.

Lines just after this dialogues were “The path of building such an AI or super intelligence require us to unlock the most fundamental secrets of the universe like, what is the nature of consciousness? is there a soul? if so where does it reside?”

Everybody was again ….what the hell man?

I think our professors should be crazy about such things.Okay lets leave that thing.

Artificial intelligence (AI) two words explain everything!

Who do you call intelligent? one who digs up databases and gives you data or the one who thinks and gives you responses. I will go with second one for an AI, coz the first one is simply… machine.

Why Dr. caster mentioned consciousness in movie? Because we just can’t create conscious machine if we don’t know what that thing is!(According to some)

But an experiment of dumbing pill performed in NY lab show us how a machine can be self aware.(If you don’t know what that sweet experiment was Google ‘nao robots experiment NY’) Hint: Dumbing pill was just a push of button.

Now as we know that a robot can be self aware we can be so sure that in a few decades we will have an entity with full range of human emotions. While some scientists will say that this is singularity, We are so sure that it will be definitely “Transcendence” !

Thank You!
