AI chip with world-class algorithm launched

Shanghai-based startup Yitu launched server AI chips on Thursday, becoming the world’s first AI chip specifically made for computers for facial recognition and smart driving.

It combines Yitu’s algorithm and Shanghai’s advanced IC, or integrated circuit eco-system, reflecting Shanghai’s effort to establish “AI highland” nationwide and globally in both AI and IC sectors.

“It’s prime time for Shanghai to boost AI development and integration between innovation and traditional industries,” Chen Mingbo, deputy secretary general of the Shanghai government, said today.

Zhu Long, co-founder and chief executive of Yitu, called the new questcore chip with “world-class algorithm” competitive enough to take on rivals including current market leader Nvidia. It also marks the end of Moore’s law when chip makers like Intel dominated the market.

In the new AI era, application, cost and energy consumption are the priorities for users besides calculation capacities, analysts said.

In China, Huawei, Yitu and Cambricon have developed AI chips for servers, which are expected to become the new “brains and hearts” of modern society. Yitu’s questcore, or Qiusuo in Mandarin (meaning exploration), is the first AI sever chip for computer vision processing.

Yitu demonstrated the use of the AI chip in real-time intelligent video analysis task — matching the faces of several hundred people with previously provided photos.

The result was an almost 100 percent success, all done within a second.

The chip offers three to five times capacity on computer vision and uses less energy compared with rivals like Nvidia.

In the future, the chip can be used in airports and railway stations to process 10,000 camera video simultaneously and even in autonomous driving cars, Zhu added.

The chip can also be used for motion capture, cancer diagnosis, bone test, vehicle management and autonomous driving. Yitu’s portfolio will cover software, algorithm, chip and severs.

Shanghai’s development of the IC industry also helped Yitu in developing the chip, Zhu said.

The Sign Of The ‘Anti-Christ’ And The ‘Mark Of The Devil’ Are Two Different Things

The Sign Of The ‘Anti-Christ’ And The ‘Mark Of The Devil’ Are Two Different Things

 

From my childhood on I have come across many people who thought/believe that the sign of the ‘Anti-Christ’ and the ‘Mark of the Devil’ are one and the same. There is no Biblical reasoning for this error in thought except for the fact that most Christians seldom open or study the Scriptures to find out what is so, or what is not so. I am over 60 yrs old now and I have studied the Scriptures since I was ten and I have learned many things about truth in this time. I am not here to argue with anyone, I am simply going to state to you what I believe to be God’s truths concerning this matter, you can believe what you wish, I am simply trying to do my duty as a servant of God. I am a person who enjoys reading historical and religious documents whether they be from secular Christian authors or writers with a narrow view-point concerning religion and world events caused by religion.

 

First let us look at ‘the mark of the Devil’ that Scripture speaks of. First we must understand that every government on earth is not ‘holy’, they are man-made and man by nature is carnal, not Godly. Scripture speaks of the ‘mark of the Devil’ being put into the head or the right hand of the people. What do you think this mark could be? Obviously it will be something that a person can’t just take off of themselves. What could this ‘thing’ be ? How could people be ‘marked’? Two thousand years ago I guess people could have been branded with an iron or even with a blade but in these times that we are living in technology has made ‘marking’ much simpler. It is my belief that this ‘mark’ will simply be a computer chip put in underneath the skin in the underside of the wrist (in Roman days the wrist was considered to be part of the hand). Most likely only a few people like government agents and military officers would have such chips put into the brain. You may say that this is a bunch of bull-s–t that no one would ever let the government do that to them, all that I can say to that is, really? When the government decides that they can not secure the money because of forgeries including State sponsored forgers like Iran and China? We all should know by now that our personal credit cards and the banks they are off of cannot protect our accounts just as the places we shop at cannot protect their own systems from hackers they cannot protect our information. Also it is obvious that the governments cannot protect our own borders as to whom is coming into the country so that employers can know who it is safe to hire or whom is not. You may say that you would never let that happen to you but when the government stops using and stops printing cash so that you must have the chip to be able to work, buy any food, pay your rent or mortgage or to even put gas in your car then you are going to have a problem. You will lose your home, car, job, and the ability to pay utilities or to ever buy something to eat, will you change your mind when you are living in a cardboard box under a bridge? If you can’t pay your taxes without the chip the government will simply take everything you ever thought you owned. Here in America I think that the identification for each person will be their social security number, but they could obviously come up with another number system to identify each of us with. Why would I call this event the mark of the Devil, if the Devil is the owner of the  government…?

 

Now about ‘the sign of the anti-Christ’. In Scripture the sign of God is the number three as in the Trinity and the sign of man is the number six as in the sixth day God created man. The sign of the anti-Christ is noted as 666, this is not the mark of the Devil, it is the sign of three very powerful people who will be possessed by Demons who answer only to their boss Satan. These three people will come from different parts of the globe, one from the east (China) one from the center (above, north of the Holy Lands) meaning the European Union area and the third will come from the Americas to the west. These three will come after they uproot the ten nations/horns and consolidate their power into a tighter noose around the world’s population. After they have almost all power on the Earth ‘The’ anti-Christ which is Satan himself will rise up from below (the Temple Mount) and usurp the power of his three generals into his own lap. By this time almost all people who have refused the chip will either be dead or in hiding trying to exist each day hiding in caves and forests. Most all of the people who will flat-out refuse the chip will be devout Christians. Do you remember the play book of the U.S. government with the Indian people? Take their guns so they can’t defend themselves or feed themselves, put them into a small area then send in the troops and wipe them out. Scripture tells us that all of the Saints/believers would be wiped out if not for the second advent of Christ returning and sending Satan back to Hell. I believe that almost all of the American people including those who call themselves devout Christians will give in to getting the chips ‘mark of the Devil’ simply because they love having a roof over their heads and food to eat more than they love the Word of God (Jesus). If we love this life and the treasures of it more than God then we will lose our own Souls suffering ‘the second death’, forever separation from God when we are sent to live forever in the fires of Hell.

Is Elon Musk A Genius An Idiot Or Maybe Both?

Is Elon Musk A Genius An Idiot Or Maybe Both?

by oldpoet56

 

I have never met the man Elon Musk but I have read quite a bit about him during this past year or two. So, I do not know him personally so the best I can do is to garner what I can from him through his quotes. Personally I have no doubt that the man is a genius as far as his IQ is concerned. I have learned during my time here on this Earth that a person can be brilliant yet still do and or believe things that are just plain stupid. I also have learned that a person with a very low IQ can sometimes come up with great ideas, sometimes things in life simply are defined by the angle or the light in which one looks at the issue in question. This article today is going to be my opinions that I have taken from an article that I read this morning in ” livescience.com “. This article is one that I reblogged earlier this morning if you wish to read it before or after you read this article. When I write articles it is always my wish and attempt to get folks to think, to stretch their minds beyond their everyday plain, this article will be no different. I am not really saying that you need to agree with me but I hope you will take a couple of moments to consider what I am laying out for you to think about. This article today is one that does concern every ones life and their Soul.

 

The Science article I mentioned to you a moment ago is concerning a company that Mr. Musk owns that is called ‘Neuralink’. Mr. Musk’s ambition with this company is to develop a “Ultrahigh-Bandwith Brain-Computer Interface.” Mr. Musk says one of the purposes is to ‘accelerate human evolution.’ He is not seeking to create pure machines like you see in the Terminator movies or even in the Will Smith movie simply called, AI. Mr. Musk says that “he sees a real danger in Artificial Intelligence” he has called AI a “fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.” I believe that he is correct there as science, which is often pushed by military government funding seeks to have pilot-less aircraft, not just Drones, but also big Jets, folks the Navy has a sailor-less battle ship! Of course that will then lead to commercial airlines getting rid of all of their pilots. Think about it, driver-less cars, tractor-trailer units, driver-less trains. O yes, we already have this technologies don’t we? Think about factory jobs for a moment please. When I was in my teen years my Dad worked at a Chrysler Assembly plant in northern Illinois, back then the assembly line had far more employees putting together the units than what you see these days. Now machines directed by computer brains have replaced most of those ‘human’ jobs. Machines, computers don’t have Unions, don’t ask for pay raises, paid days off, overtime pay, medical benefits and that list goes on and on. Why let a human do what a computer can do much cheaper, and in most cases, better?

 

Evidently Mr. Musk is concerned that we humans, starting with the poorest, weakest, least educated will only be a burden on society (the wealthiest people), if you are not a positive to society, why should you be allowed to live off of someone else (the rich)? What was Arnold’s phrase, ‘you have been Terminated’? Mr. Musk believes (and he is trying to accomplish this through his Neuralink Company) “that the best way to keep pace with the machines intelligence is to up grade human intelligence.” In the good ole days wasn’t that called going to school and getting the best education that you were able to get?

 

From a pure science perspective Mr. Musk is correct on a couple of different plains. I believe that he is correct about his concerns regarding AI. Do you not believe that the servant can become the master? Could the humble public servant (politicians/bureaucrats/police) ever dare to become the master over the people? We already have, and we have had for many years now the integration of computer chips for people. It started out with chips for our pets so that they don’t get lost from us. Then we went into chips for new-born babies, just in case they ever got lost or stolen. Then came the chips for employees and their convenience. We have had little ‘brain’ chips for well over a decade now. Neuralink and Mr. Musk are now simply trying to stretch the human-computer ‘interface’ as he puts it. There will soon be a day where if you are an employee or if you are an office supervisor of importance that the company will require you to have mandated chip technology in your hand or you can’t get the job or the promotion. If you don’t think that what I am saying to you is logical or true, my friend it is you who are living in a fantasy world, not me.

 

This last paragraph is going to be from my Christian Biblical viewpoint. We are told several times in the book of Revelation about the ‘Mark of the Beast’ being put into our hand or into our head, we are told that if we humans allow this that when Christ and His Angels return that we will die twice. The first death is when this body dies, the second death is when God severs His relationship with us and cast’s us into Hell for all eternity. Many will say things along the lines of ‘what has the Mark of the Beast got to do with computer chips’? I know that most folks still do not realize what ‘Armageddon’ really is. Scripture is very plain that Armageddon is when the Nations of the Earth and their Armies fight against God and His Angels at the Second Advent of Christ. We are also told that the people who are found to have the mark of the Beast in their hand or in their head will be totally crushed as if in a wine-press. Friends think about it for a moment, it is the governments which at that time will be led by Demons and Satan Himself that are going to fight against God, so yes, the governments will be even more wicked than they are now. Friends the mark of the ‘Beast’ is not the number 666, no where does Scripture say that it is. Simply there will come a time when 10 governments will control almost all of the globe and these 10 governments will sit upon the 7 Continents. Then the power will be consolidated into 3 all-powerful governments, then into one. Six is the sign of man, three is the sign of God. The world will have 3 all-powerful governments that are ruled by 3 of Satan’s top Generals. 3 Men who will try to take the place of God, as if they are God’s. Then they will give up their power to the 1 true Anti-Christ, Satan Himself. 3 Men (6’s) who would be God (3’s) if they could. Friends, all I can say to you as I close this article today is please for no reason ever allow anyone to ever put any kind of chip into you, please.
