01) Organic Computing

” Organic computers are based on living, biological “wetware”. This video reports on organic computing research in areas including DNA storage and massively parallel DNA processing, as well as the potential development of biochips and entire biocomputers. “

I’m wondering what you have to do, to maintain such a thing…It’s living matter, after all…If it does not get nourishment, wont it die and rot away?

Do we have a future in front of us, where we have to literally feed our computers?


Google’s self-learning AI AlphaZero masters chess in 4 hours…

01) Google’s self-learning AI AlphaZero masters chess in 4 hours

“Google’s AI AlphaZero has shocked the chess world. Leaning on its deep neural networks, and general reinforcement learning algorithm, DeepMind’s AI Alpha Zero learned to play chess well beyond the skill level of master, besting the 2016 top chess engine Stockfish 8 in a 100-game match. Alpha Zero had 28 wins, 72 draws, and 0 losses. Impressive right? And it took just 4 hours of self-play to reach such a proficiency. What the chess world has witnessed from this historic event is, simply put, mind-blowing! AlphaZero vs Magnus Carlsen anyone? 🙂

CHIP $9 Computer…

01) CHIP $9 Computer

“This video reviews the CHIP $9 single board computer that at the time of upload was sold by the Next Thing Co, but which is now apparently discontinued.

Weekly videos on other single board computers and a wide range of computing-related topics can be found at:

CHIP v Raspberry Pi Zero:

This is just fascinating…

It’s to bad you cant get these CHIPs anymore.

They could be quite useful, if you need a quick, inexpensive computer…or, you want something dispensable, where you can surf the net and not worry about picking up viruses and such things.

…If you can get more…this is the type of computer you could afford to lose, and not even so much care about it.


No More “Age Verification” Free Video Embedding…


Date: March 23, 2017

I’ve stopped using the embedding code, that sidesteps the YouTube age verification.

Potentially, you’ve noticed that a lot of the embedded videos from YouTube are all giving a playback error?

For years, I’ve used the embedding code that is supposed to let anyone watch a video outright, without worrying about logging into YouTube to verify their age…This was done as a courtesy to my visitors.

As always…YouTube has recently made changes to their website…and from the looks of it, they’ve disabled this method of embedding…whether intentional, or not.

This means for me, that I have already dropped the usage of it…To be honest, it was annoying having to deal with a few things about it, anyway…I’m glad to be done with it.

But, now a ton of embedded videos won’t play on this blog…Fortunately, this is why I’ve always included a direct link to the YouTube video page…So, there should be no real issue…Just click on the link…Watch it on YouTube.

All the best…
