- is this just an exponential fit?
- or is this an exponential fit i_1 + i_2 * i_3^m, that tends to contain small integers i_j?
- or does it tend to be exactly an exponential fit a = 4 + 3 * 2^m?
Pehaps they'll miss the unnatural yellow tint CFLs give, to save on the inefficient red phospor (some of the CFLs with the best light are B on the efficiency scale, because they contain balanced amounts of yellow and red).
More seriously, traditional bulbs give off warmth, which some people understandably like, especially in colder climates. And modern halogens are C on the efficiency scale, not bad given their sun--like light. The trick is to use a special glass cover that returns some of the infra--red band back to the tungsten.
Yes, it's an obvious problem, just like with playing the game the same.
I do not claim, that a system like that would be good in general. I just wondered, if it could be simplified by resuing what's already learned.
The system requires that you copy-write a short random message by hand, but at no point do you actually remember the subtleties of your individual writing style, like the ballpoint pressure or distribution of the shape of "o"s, meaning it can't be presented as a plain sequence of letters and it can't be obtained via coercion or torture i.e. rubber-hose cryptanalysis. The system, devised by Anonymous Coward, relies on implicit learning, a process by which you absorb new information, but you're completely unaware that you've actually learned anything; a bit like learning to ride a bike. The process of learning the password (or cryptographic key) does NOT involve anything, as your writing style is likely already precisely and intricately shaped for years.
Without a human specialist, a dedicated OCR software would need to be developed, though...
they for example solved the problem of graphene to always need some current? Being able to build ultra-fast chips is nice, but if there is no way to reduce power usage of parts currently usused
Many algorithms are serial. A few thousand terahertz transistors might be just enough for them. And if such an algorithm needs a lot of data, a silicone memory around might be sufficient as well.
If you have a terahertz transistor, it will very likely find an application in computing, even if it would use 1mW when being idle.
