Autism and Quantum Computing

A thought just occurred to me.

Matter-of-factly, Autism research has shown distributed brain activity with far more diffusion in the MRI scans of patients with autism than those without.

Does the potential power of the record autistic brain activity pattern (while performing computations of high-complexity) have its counterpart in quantum computing? In which, quantum computing equates to autistic brain diffusion, compared with current processing complexity maximums (whether it be in the most efficient A.I./ANN classifier, sFFT algos, or distributed computing algos) being equivalent to average human brain diffusion (again, while performing computations of high-complexity).

I am making no attempt to discern any difference above in the autistic brains of the highly-functional and the not highly-functional. Instead, I am assimilating the high-complexity computing power of autistic brains that can function to output results at a processing power that is nearly-infinitely more efficient than the average human brain.

A Must Read for Every Entrepreneur

This document has made it way around a bit by now. I originally found it through a HN posting sometime early last year. Nevertheless, this document contains crucial information for any entrepreneur. Even if you are familiar with most of the elements within, the verbiage is simple and to-the-point… worth a read.. or re-read.

Just wanted to take a moment to say how cool Google’s new Flu Trends graphs are. They aggregated data from anonymous users’ search and came up with this outstanding visualization (at least, it’s something that I’ve been interested in knowing about for some time now).

Friedrich Nietzsche on Religion

Friedrich Nietzsche, son of a religious leader, went on to invoke a evolved era of thinking about relationship between humanity and religion – indeed, quite inwardly and without god. One of his more prominant quotes, written in a letter for his sister, Lisbeth, tells a great deal.

Short quote from YouTube Documentary (BBC):

Every true faith is infallible – it performs what the believing person hopes to find in it. But it does not offer the least support for the establishing of an objective truth. Here, the ways of men divide. If you want to achieve peace of mind and happiness, have faith. If you want to be a disciple of truth, then search.

Full quote from literary source of the period:

I write this to you, dear Lisbeth, only in order to counter the most usual proofs of believing people, who invoke the evidence of their inner experiences and deduce from it the infallibility of their faith. Every true faith is indeed infallible; it performs what the believing person hopes to find in it, but it does not offer the least support for the establishing of an objective truth.

Here the ways of men divide. If you want to achieve peace of mind and happiness, then have faith; if you want to be a disciple of truth, then search.

Between, there are many halfway positions. But it all depends on the principle aim.

Simulating the Human Brain with Supercomputers

A fascinating article on IBM’s successes in simulating the human brain using supercomputers is worth reading: The Brain in the Machine: I.B.M’s Compass : The New Yorker

I looked into the Blue Brain Project after catching its mentioning in the above article.

Here is a fascinating video that describes the Blue Brain Project (about 4 minutes long):

The Human Connectome Project is also worth checking out.

My startup is called Kimerick, which encompasses neural network discovery processes, like the processes used in the Blue Brain and Human Connectome projects – maybe that is why all of this is very fascinating to me!Kimerick
