    WHY ROBACUS IS SMARTER THAN GOOGLE TRANSLATOR ?

    Google translate is practically begging for users to help it with the translator. It's the most primitive form of Robacus' way of getting the users to contribute, transparently and with high productivity for them. It's a good start, however small it is.
    In the past few years, I have seen Google translate turning from a pitiful translator to a useful one. It finally Google can get to the point that it's the best and only way an automatic translator can be constructed, Google and perhaps other smart companies(definitely Microsoft is not) would be able to understand the concept behind Robacus' design.

    This is the concept of KNOWLEDGE FARMING being put into practice! When that happens, we need power, but it should be centralized, and the smart iphone should be reduced to a pocket keyboard.

    This is how we have become blind to computer's true potentials since the initial rush to to reach the stars and harvest the subabomic fission energy, whose doors could only be open by the key that is the computer's software used to simulate the unseen . Computer is destined to be the thinking component of humanity's earthly experience. And this "thinking" would be supported by the collective inputs from the surrounding human users. When the individual contributions from the humans are centrally harvested and accumulated by software automation technology inside the computer, the computer will spontaneously grow to become as powerful a thinker as as how it's been growing in speed and memory, theoretically without bounds.

    ROBACUS + COMPUTER = THINKING MACHINES

    Computer is to replace our brain, just as machine, our muscle. This dynamic dual of unlimited brain and muscle power could easily usher in the postscarcity era if we let it. Comsumerization of computers also limited them to serve as a glorified typewriter/phone combo. Apple and Microsoft are competing to see who could turn out the best opium for the comsuming market. These two outfits founded by college dropouts are really just, respectively, a jewlry store and a toy factory. Most of the computing powers today are thus sit there idle -- that is, when they are not being used for negative productivity.

      Hello! Robert has informed me that Hackerspace would be happy to host us, so we'll be going with Hackerspace. Red Hat is available as a backup, as always. I don't it would be very nice for the Hackerspace events team if we were to change to Red Hat. I'm not sure if the others are fine with 23 March as AWS will be having a meetup. As for the previous event, I misunderstood what Harish said in the email and Red Hat was willing to host us.
