No Time for Tears

I am really sad as this space is winding down and I want to be angry. Yet this is the reality: it's a journey. It transformed us (me at least). I am glad I was here (still am). What happens next will be better because of all this.

I value you all, more than I can say.

Nostalgia Update: Just to see how much things changed over the last few years check out this post from just two years after G+ was formed (courtesy of +Grizwald Grim who revived it) - http://bit.ly/2yo5CeQ

Why Is This Happening Again?

To understand the reason we are facing the problems we are now you must first understand a very basic truth about us.

Bennie's a Sea Dog ;)

Yep, honest. Vest against the wind and the sea? Check. Toughened, all-terrain boots that grip anywhere? Check. Sea-wind ruffled face? Check. Sea in the immediate background? Check. Boats galore? Check. 'nuff said. ;) Happy Wednesday fellow land dwellers. ;)

Talking Point

The brain is at an inflection point. Its complexity is such that even unlikely problems become inevitable.

Brain and Search

Information retrieval is, of course, what the brain does every time we dredge our memory in order to make sense of the real world. And as far as information retrieval is concerned the model we have of the brain has gone from a Bayesian inference model to a semantic predictive one. Search, of course, has also followed the same pattern of functionality and development but it's still lagging behind in raw computational power and capability But this should give you an idea of the direction things are headed towards.
