Truly personal computation

Bill Gates wanted to put a desktop computer into every home


I want to do some thing similar: I want everyone to use their computers to their full potential.

I want my CPU to be at 100% CPU trying to find solutions to my problems.

Centrally planned economy.

It's so complicated and it involves infinite regress. So you would need a hill climbing algorithm and you need to avoid local optimum and find global Optimums.

You do this if I do that. But you would react to me doing this in reaction to that.

Economics is complicated and people are complicated. What if we could capture some information and compute on it. The model must match reality and I suspect finding a model would be difficult and it might be a solution for neural networks - finding the function over which the economy works.

是的,这些天似乎比好主意如何使用具有更多的计算能力。 1969年的梦想家知道他们将使用额外的计算能力是什么:他们将尝试解决哪些物理方程式,他们将要运行哪些模拟。 1999年的人们拥有SETI @ HOME。但是,2020年的人们在某种程度上可以充分利用计算机的不足,从而保持计算机的性能。


Yeah, there seem to be more compute power these days than good ideas how to use it. The dreamers of 1969 knew what would they have used the extra compute power: what physics equations would they try to solve, what simulations would they have wanted to run. The people of 1999 had SETI@HOME. The people of 2020, however are somehow OK with that under-use of compute, keeping computers cool.

So, yeah, it would be nice to have the CPUs doing something useful all the time. What could that be?
