because the human brain is not perfect or correctly educated yet.

is a style of software design
where services are provided to the other components by application
components, through a communication protocol over a network. The basic
principles of service oriented architecture are independent of vendors,
products and technologies. A service is a discrete unit of functionality
that can be accessed remotely and acted upon and updated independently,
such as retrieving a credit card statement online. A service has four
properties according to one of many definitions of SOA: It logically
represents a business activity with a specified outcome. It is
self-contained. It is a black box for its consumers. It may consist of
other underlying services. Different services can be used in conjunction
to provide the functionality of a large software application.
Service-oriented architecture makes it easier for software components to
communicate and cooperate over the network, without requiring any human
interaction or changes in the underlying program, so that service
candidates can be redesigned before their implementation.
also known as message-driven
architecture, is a software architecture pattern promoting the production,

Complex Event Processing
is a method of tracking and analyzing (processing) streams of information
(data) about things that happen (events), and deriving a conclusion from
them. Complex event processing, or CEP, is event processing that combines
data from multiple sources to infer events or patterns that suggest more
complicated circumstances. The goal of complex event processing is to
identify meaningful events (such as opportunities or threats) and respond
to them as quickly as possible.

is an extra input to a Turing machine that
is allowed to depend on the length n of the input, but not on the input
itself. A decision problem is in the complexity class P/f(n) if there is a
polynomial time Turing machine M with the following property: for any n,
there is an advice string A of length f(n) such that, for any input x of
length n, the machine M correctly decides the problem on the input x,
given x and A.

continuous variables include constrained problems and multimodal problems.

Convolutional Neural Network
is a type of feed-forward artificial neural network in which the
connectivity pattern between its neurons is inspired by the organization
of the animal visual cortex, whose individual neurons are arranged in such
a way that they respond to overlapping regions tiling the visual field.

. This creates an internal state of the network which
allows it to exhibit dynamic temporal behavior. Unlike feedforward neural
networks, RNNs can use their internal memory to process arbitrary
sequences of inputs. This makes them applicable to tasks such as
unsegmented connected handwriting recognition or speech recognition.
Bidirectional associative memory
is a type of recurrent neural
network. Hopfield Network
is an artificial neural network characterized by a
series of independent neural networks moderated by some intermediary. Each
independent neural network serves as a module and operates on separate
inputs to accomplish some subtask of the task the network hopes to
perform. The intermediary takes the outputs of each module and processes
them to produce the output of the network as a whole. The intermediary
only accepts the modules’ outputs—it does not respond to, nor otherwise
signal, the modules. As well, the modules do not interact with each other.
Biological Neural Network
is a series of interconnected neurons whose
activation defines a recognizable linear pathway. The interface through
which neurons interact with their neighbors usually consists of several
axon terminals connected via synapses to dendrites on other neurons. If
the sum of the input signals into one neuron surpasses a certain
threshold, the neuron sends an action potential (AP) at the axon hillock
and transmits this electrical signal along the axon.

Can machines think like humans?
That is a stupid question that
only a human could ask. First, a human would have to define what
it means to
. And this is where the question actually begins. To
think like a human is not always a good thing, since humans make
a lot of mistakes, mistakes that we don't always learn from. So
a machine thinking like a human would not be a good thing,
especially when the thinking process hasn't even been totally
defined just yet. You have to remember that humans
machines, and humans also
machines. Machines can do amazing things because
humans can do amazing things. But people get this crazy idea
that that machines will think for them. This is because some
people have not yet learned to think for themselves. Just how
much machines will think for humans, is up to humans, not
machines. So maybe the first question should be, can humans
think like machines?
Can machines become smarter then humans?
Of course they can, because

education as we did creating artificial intelligence, we would eventually

Controls - Automation
is the control method used by a controller
which must adapt to a controlled system with parameters which vary, or are
is the engineering discipline that
applies control theory to design systems with desired behaviors. The
practice uses sensors to measure the output performance of the device
being controlled and those measurements can be used to give feedback to
the input actuators that can make corrections toward desired performance.
When a device is designed to perform without the need of human inputs for
correction it is called automatic control (such as cruise control for
regulating the speed of a car). Multi-disciplinary in nature, control
systems engineering activities focus on implementation of control systems
mainly derived by mathematical modeling of systems of a diverse range.
is an engineering discipline that deals with
architectures, mechanisms and algorithms for maintaining the output of a
specific process within a desired range. For instance, the temperature of
a chemical reactor may be controlled to maintain a consistent product
is one of the managerial functions like planning,
organizing, staffing and directing. It is an important function because it
helps to check the errors and to take the corrective action so that
deviation from standards are minimized and stated goals of the
organization are achieved in a desired manner. According to modern
concepts, control is a foreseeing action whereas earlier concept of
control was used only when errors were detected. Control in management
means setting standards, measuring actual performance and taking
corrective action. You can't control
is a device, or set of devices, that manages,
commands, directs or regulates the behaviour of other devices or systems.
They can range from a home heating controller using a thermostat
controlling a boiler to large Industrial control systems which are used
for controlling processes or machines.
Regulator (automatic control)
is a regulator is a device which has the
function of maintaining a designated characteristic. It performs
the activity of managing or maintaining a range of values in a
machine. The measurable property of a device is managed closely
by specified conditions or an advance set value; or it can be a
variable according to a predetermined arrangement scheme. It can
be used generally to connote any set of various controls or
devices for regulating or controlling items or objects.
Examples are a voltage regulator (which can be a transformer
whose voltage ratio of transformation can be adjusted, or an
electronic circuit that produces a defined voltage), a pressure
regulator, such as a diving regulator, which maintains its
output at a fixed pressure lower than its input, and a fuel
regulator (which controls the supply of fuel).
Regulators can be designed to control anything from gases or
fluids, to light or electricity. Speed can be regulated by
electronic, mechanical, or electro-mechanical means. Such
Electronic regulators as used in modern railway sets where the
voltage is raised or lowered to control the speed of the engine. Mechanical
such as valves as used in fluid control
systems. Purely mechanical pre-automotive systems included such
designs as the Watt centrifugal governor whereas modern systems
may have electronic fluid speed sensing components directing
solenoids to set the valve to the desired rate. Complex
electro-mechanical speed control systems used to maintain speeds
in modern cars (cruise control) - often including hydraulic
components, An aircraft engine's constant speed unit changes the
propeller pitch to maintain engine speed.
Programmable Logic Controller
is an industrial digital computer which
has been ruggedised
adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly
lines, or robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability
control and ease of programming and process fault diagnosis. They were
first developed in the automobile industry to provide flexible, ruggedised
and easily programmable controllers to replace hard-wired relays and
timers. Since then they have been widely adopted as high-reliability
automation controllers suitable for harsh environments. A PLC is an
example of a "hard" real-time system since output results must be produced
in response to input conditions within a limited time, otherwise
unintended operation will result.
Controller (control theory)
is a device, historically using
mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic or electronic techniques often in
combination, but more recently in the form of a microprocessor or
computer, which monitors and physically alters the operating conditions of
a given dynamical system. Typical applications of controllers are to hold
settings for temperature, pressure, flow or speed.
is the area of control theory which deals
with systems that are nonlinear, time-variant, or both.
Closed-Loop Transfer Function
in control theory is a
mathematical expression (algorithm) describing the net result of the
effects of a closed (feedback) loop on the input signal to the circuits
enclosed by the loop.
Hierarchical Control System

Networked Control System
is a control system wherein the
control loops are closed through a communication network. The defining
feature of an NCS is that control and feedback signals are exchanged among
the system's components in the form of information packages through a
is when the control action from the
controller is independent of the "process output", which is the process
variable that is being controlled. It does not use feedback to determine
if its output has achieved the desired goal of the input or process "set
point". An open-loop system cannot engage in machine learning and also
cannot correct any errors that it could make. It will not compensate for
disturbances in the process being controlled.
Perceptual Control Theory
is a model of behavior based on
the principles of negative feedback, but differing in important respects
from engineering control theory. Results of PCT experiments have
demonstrated that an organism controls neither its own behavior, nor
external environmental variables, but rather its own perceptions of those
variables. Actions are not controlled, they are varied so as to cancel the
effects that unpredictable environmental disturbances would otherwise have
on controlled perceptions.

is a term used in signal processing and
mixed-signal system design to describe a series of signal-conditioning
electronic components that receive input (data acquired from sampling
either real-time phenomena or from stored data) in tandem, with the output
of one portion of the chain supplying input to the next. Signal chains are
often used in signal processing applications to gather and process data or
to apply system controls based on analysis of real-time phenomena.
Feed Forward (control)
is a term describing an element or
pathway within a control system which passes a controlling signal from a
source in its external environment, often a command signal from an
external operator, to a load elsewhere in its external environment. A
control system which has only feed-forward behavior responds to its
control signal in a pre-defined way without responding to how the load
reacts; it is in contrast with a system that also has feedback, which
adjusts the output to take account of how it affects the load, and how the
load itself may vary unpredictably; the load is considered to belong to
the external environment of the system.
Nothing is beyond your control,
there is nothing that you cannot control
. Something's are harder
to control then others, and there are some things you have not
yet learned how to control. To say that I cannot control
something is a false statement. To be more accurate, you have to
say that I have not yet learned how to control this.
Ai is about making humans more effective
, it's not about making
machines more like humans, because that's crazy. Humans are
mistake prone, and machines are supposed to help us reduce
mistakes, and help us to analyze our options. A machine could
never be more intelligent then the most intelligent human. But a
machine could easily be more intelligent then a human who has
never learned enough, or went to school. You really don't want a
machine to be more intelligent then you, because that clearly
says that you don't have the necessary knowledge and information
that's needed to be intelligent. But Ai could easily be a
teacher and a measuring tool for intelligence, with an emphasis
on the word 'Tool'. Ai is not human, or will it ever be. But Ai
is a great example and a symbol of human ingenuity and
intelligence. A dog is a mans best friend, and Ai is an

Questions for Machines
ask a question
if you are talking to a machine, or a search engine that's not
manipulated by money. And we know that sometimes we have to ask
more then one question, even when talking to a machine. So in a
way, machines can be better then a human because machines can be
built to resemble the best qualities and the best skills that a
human could have, without any of the deceitful behaviors, or
human ignorance, or human flaws. Ai should encompass the best
qualities of a human, not the worst. So as Ai improves, so will

The most-used orders are numerical order and lexicographical order.
Efficient sorting is important for optimizing the use of other algorithms
(such as search and merge algorithms) which require input data to be in
sorted lists; it is also often useful for canonicalizing data and for
producing human-readable output. More formally, the output must satisfy
two conditions: The output is in nondecreasing order (each element is no
smaller than the previous element according to the desired total order);
The output is a permutation (reordering) of the input. Further, the data
is often taken to be in an array, which allows random access, rather than
a list, which only allows sequential access, though often algorithms can
be applied with suitable modification to either type of data.
Inductive Turing Machines
implement an important class of
super-recursive algorithms. An inductive Turing machine is a definite list
of well-defined instructions for completing a task which, when given an
initial state, will proceed through a well-defined series of successive
states, eventually giving the final result. The difference between an
inductive Turing machine and an ordinary Turing machine is that an
ordinary Turing machine must stop when it has obtained its result, while

refers to the use of a Lyapunov function to
optimally control a dynamical system. Lyapunov functions are used
extensively in control theory to ensure different forms of system
stability. The state of a system at a particular time is often described
by a multi-dimensional vector. A Lyapunov function is a nonnegative scalar
measure of this multi-dimensional state. Typically, the function is
defined to grow large when the system moves towards undesirable states.
System stability is achieved by taking control actions that make the
Lyapunov function drift in the negative direction towards zero.

Variable (computer science)
is a storage location paired
with an associated symbolic name (an identifier), which contains some
known or unknown quantity of information referred to as a value. The
variable name is the usual way to reference the stored value; this
separation of name and content allows the name to be used independently of
the exact information it represents. The identifier in computer source
code can be bound to a value during run time, and the value of the
variable may thus change during the course of program execution.

Robot Operating System
is a collection of software frameworks for robot software
development, (see also Robotics middleware) providing operating
system-like functionality on a heterogeneous computer cluster. ROS
provides standard operating system services such as hardware abstraction,
low-level device control, implementation of commonly used functionality,
message-passing between processes, and package management. Running sets of
ROS-based processes are represented in a graph architecture where
processing takes place in nodes that may receive, post and multiplex
sensor, control, state, planning, actuator and other messages. Despite the
importance of reactivity and low latency in robot control, ROS, itself, is
not a real-time OS (RTOS), though it is possible to integrate ROS with
real-time code. The lack of support for real-time systems is being
addressed in the creation of ROS 2.0. Software in the ROS Ecosystem can be
separated into three groups: Language-and platform-independent tools used
for building and distributing ROS-based software; ROS client library
implementations such as roscpp,rospy, and roslisp; Packages containing
application-related code which uses one or more ROS client libraries.
DAvinCi Robotic Operating System

Visual Search Engine
is a search engine designed to search
for information on the World Wide Web through the input of an image or a
search engine with a visual display of the search results. Information may
consist of web pages, locations, other images and other types of
documents. This type of search engines is mostly used to search on the
mobile Internet through an image of an unknown object (unknown search
query). Examples are buildings in a foreign city. These search engines
often use techniques for Content Based Image Retrieval.

processing a common assumption is that sufficiently small image regions
can be characterized as locally one-dimensional, e.g., in terms of lines
or edges. For natural images this assumption is usually correct except at
specific points, e.g., corners or line junctions or crossings, or in
regions of high frequency textures. However, what size the regions have to
be in order to appear as one-dimensional varies both between images and
within an image. Also, in practice a local region is never exactly
one-dimensional but can be so to a sufficient degree of approximation.
Optical Character Recognition
is the mechanical or
electronic conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into
machine-encoded text, whether from a scanned document, a photo of a
document, a scene-photo (for example the text on signs and billboards in a
landscape photo) or from subtitle text superimposed on an image (for
example from a television broadcast).

one word we take for granted. So detailed instructions on how to
use this information is a must. Like when you install software
into a computer. The software comes with instructions that tells
the computer how the information can be used. Then of course the
computer needs an operating system
in order to use that
information correctly. Computers will allow humans to learn
faster, but only if the instructions are detailed and accurate.
So there are two sides of learning. Choosing the best
information to learn and then creating the instructions on how
to use the information correctly. Again, the computer and the
human brain show their similarities. Reading

"When people start learning how artificial
intelligence can learn on its own, we will actually be teaching
ourselves, and at the same time, learn how to learn more effectively."
We created something incredible
called the Computer.
And as we were perfecting the computers power and potential we
realized that we should be making these same improvements with
ourselves. Think about it, our brains are computers, so why
don't humans have an Operating System
to help us learn more and to be more
productive. But it simply wasn’t that the computer educated us
more, it was the realization that the computer was actually us.
This has happened with a lot of human creations and
advancements. We start off creating something to improve our
lives and it ends up teaching us that we are the ones who need
to improve and not our technology. If our education system does
not advance at the same speed as technology, we will continue to
suffer from these advancements instead of benefiting from them.
And that is a proven fact if you look at the world today and see
the worldwide suffering and the atrocities that have continued
to get worse and worse. One life improving at the expense of 1,000’s of other lives is not improvement it is simply criminal
