There has been a good deal of speculation on the post election creation of a Trump TV cable network. The New Yorker points out it would be a bad business plan. There's also the question of an advertiser base that would be easily shunned elsewhere..
It is more sophisticated than I thought, but he mentioned there is a reliability issue. We've had great luck with very cheap electrics that only last two or three years, but cost less than a tenth as much.
What ? The Megaprocessor is a micro-processor built large. Very large.
How ? Like all modern processors the Megaprocessor is built from transistors. It's just that instead of using teeny-weeny ones integrated on a silicon chip it uses discrete individual ones like those below. Thousands of them. And loads of LEDs.
Why ? - short answer : Because I want to.
Why ? - long answer : Computers are quite opaque, looking at them it's impossible to see how they work. What I would like to do is get inside and see what's going on. Trouble is we can't shrink down small enough to walk inside a silicon chip. But we can go the other way; we can build the thing big enough that we can walk inside it. Not only that we can also put LEDs on everything so we can actually SEE the data moving and the logic happening. It's going to be great.
Very accurate centimeter level GPS readings has been around for a few decades can be made with a scattering of auxiliary base stations and a fair amount of signal processing. Not cheap, but very useful. Now it has been demonstrated on the low end - perhaps practical enough for cars.
Apple tends to be quiet about its inner workings... but, responding to criticism they aren't buzz-word compliant, they granted a rare interview highlighting some of their machine learning efforts. It isn't terribly surprising that an effort might exist or that it might take a different direction than others. There is precedent for efforts where very bright people trained in other fields have taken on problems and made progress. That said the interview was controlled and should be taken with a grain of salt.
