Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Think of the uphill gait while damaged...in your scenario you'd pick either 'uphill' or 'damaged'....but with the neural net it would adapt the uphill to perform best while damaged.
1) Patenting a seed, and then patent trolling people who's fields were pollinated by their patented seed.
2) Adding in a resistance gene to a plant that didn't have it, using harsh chemicals to kill pests, where the plant soaks up the chemical and is then eaten by people.
3) Causing drug resistance (Roundup) to spread to plants that weren't meant to have it (by lack of proper testing), thereby causing destruction to farms where there are hardly any alternatives to nuking the field to destroy the weeds that are now resistant.
4) Where the use of the "Scientific Method" and independant testing is ignored in the name of profit.
Need I say more?
I wonder if they (private companies) secretly allowed it(NSA infiltration) to happen under fear of the NSA using whatever power they have to get the companies shut down if they didn't follow suit. Now that the public has been informed, the companies are using all the plausible deniability they can to prevent lawsuits. In the case of the UPS, I don't think there's any plausible deniability to use...It's not a software system that the NSA could exploit per-se.
Or is it the case these companies really are just as corrupt as the NSA?
I really don't see any other alternative, unless you want to argue that Snowdens docs were fake (Highly unlikely).
Take a traditional light bulb for example. 120V @0.5A using 60 watts. So in 1 hour you use
Now lets take the resonant frequency of Tungsten (4.161mhz)....If we can pulse at this freqency, we can put less into the system and get the same observable output (lumens). Since the frequency will be increased by 69.35 the VoltAmps will need to decrease by the same factor to use the same power. So say 4.3V @ 200mA is a good approximation. Now because 4.161mhz is the resonant frequency the efficiency of the transfer of electricity to lumens has increased, we can likely decrease the voltage and/or current quite a bit.
So lets say that now the efficiency of the light bulb goes up to 30lm/w at the resonant frequency...
we would now be able to use the formula (V*A * 69.35 = W -> W*30 = lm). This would give you 1739 lm at that 4.3V@200mA, so you'd need to decrease significantly. Lets take 2V @ 200mA, you'd get 27.74W @ 4.161mhz frequency, that gives you a lumen output of 832lm.
Now you're using only 27.74 Watts per hour to provide approximately the same amount of light. Of course in the real world the numbers are a bit different, but that's how it can be calculated.
I was in a bit of a hurry to finish up, sorry for the sloppy math.
