Ken Kutaragi: God In The Machine

Exclusive: Outgoing Sony exec Kutaragi already planning PS4

TOKYO — Playstation inventor Ken Kutaragi, who will retire as chairman and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. on June 19, is already thinking ahead to Playstation 4 and beyond.

In an exclusive interview with EE Times, Kutaragi said: “As a matter of course, I have the vision of Playstation 4, 5 and 6, which will merge into the network.”

It is too bad Kutaragi cannot speak English fluently. He needs to be at Apple. He would be a good successor to Steve Jobs.

iPhone: Battery Life Is Good

iPhone’s true battery-life to surprise us – source

Since Apple announced the iPhone in January, there has been a lot of buzz around the possible issues that the V1.0 of the product – due in June – could suffer. The biggest concern being its battery life as some reports claimed it could fall short in some cases. Source we can trust but we can’t name now says: “these reports are bullshit!”

I should have stuck with my first instinct that thought it was bullshit.

Palm-Based Hawkins Machine Disappoints

April 28, 2007

I entered 374 data results (yes, by hand, on that grid!!) to try to get a prediction.

It takes 2:34 for the beast to load on my ancient CLIE S320 with that amount of data.

It seems some vector files broke and I kept getting a wrong prediction. (It takes about 3 minutes for it to predict on my sloooow CLIE!)

With my initial ~35 test entries, the prediction I got was screwy — it was recursive! — but after examing the source data, I could see why it came up with that prediction.

The program author suggests I try M-5 Neural Network Computer 1.0 instead. Agh, what a beast!

I’m also wondering what the desktop version of the Numenta software would do…

That’s all for this weekend.
