I think of this blog as a sort of scrapbook of mine, and I wanted to save a copy of this in my scrapbook. Notice my comment at the end. It was put in before any of the sciters had added their scite, so they all saw it. Others may add their scite to this list in the future. It’s possible to remove a scite after adding it. peer-review

  1. Hi Bob,
    Slight content error on the ‘Sci-Fi’ link on ar-tiste.com
    Actually the Greg Bear book “Moving Mars” the QL Thinker was not specifically a self-aware computer but an adjunct or co-processor that
    a human could interface to through a neural link and utilize the Thinker to solve problems. In the book the manner of its reasoning and result of its computation were strictly non-deterministic.
    thanks,
    JG

  2. Hello Bob: I don’t really have any comment on this particular blog, but here is something completely off-topic!!. Is your alma mater listed in these rankings?. I wonder what Scott thinks of his school being rated No.1???… Thanks & have a good day.

  3. Yes, Sol, it’s listed, but I don’t want to say which one, because I want people to judge me for my quantum computing work, not by the universities I’ve gone to.

    Besides, I think that K-12 teachers are the real heroes of education, not pompous, parasitic, slacker college professors. My high school Math teacher, Prof Jose Garrido, was the best math teacher I ever had.

    Besides, I think the current American university system is a dinosaur that will soon be replaced by something much better. Take a look at some of the posts in this blog about MOOCs for more info about my opinions about MOOCs. Also, here is what I recently posted on Scotty’s blog, relative to his discussion about admission policies at MIT:

    I think Club Med universities with a large, carefully manicured campus are a dinosaur on an inexorable path to extinction. Your essay and Pinker’s are nice Paleontology

    I think that what will happen soon is that some university will become the McDonald’s of undergraduate education. It will have tens of thousands of franchises throughout the world. Most of the coursework will be done online, through carefully optimized MOOCs. Students will meet maybe once a week in a small facility (maybe their existing high school or vocational school) to take tests in the presence of a proctor and to take the occasional lab course or manual training.

    MacUni will give as good an education as MIT at 1/20 th the price. Soon MacUni will start attracting people as smart and gifted as an MIT, except in much larger numbers due to its having 1,000 times as many students

    I think that this is inevitable because half the population of world earns less than 3 dollars a day but they deserve an MIT education (if they want it and can hack it) as much as you or me.

    “how will it draw applicants away from the Ivies,”

    The Ivies will join the MOOC oil rush too, because greed is a very powerful human motivator. Remember Titusville, ye Pennsylvanian Aaronson🙂

    What makes more money, a French restaurant that caters to a small, local, affluent clientele, or a world wide chain of MacDonalds (or Starbucks) sucking in people from the whole economic spectrum?

  4. Bravo Bob! Nice dig at current University System! However, the Top Ivy Schools continue to thrive despite their exorbitant tuition fees and other shortcomings. I suppose there will ALWAYS be people with more money than brains who will apply to go to these schools. Only future will determine their ultimate fate. We shall see. Thanks again.

  5. update: 4 more people have added their name to the list

    Juan Bermejo-Vega, Shelby Kimmel, Steve Flammia, Viv Kendon

    Unethical people often support each other.

  6. Update:
    As shown in the gif below, Steve Flammia changed my words to his and called me a troll. What a classy guy!

    Flammia means “little flame” in Italian, perhaps alluding to the brightness of his intellect. My Italian grandmother would have also commented that he looks like a “piccolo scarafaggio” (little cockroach)
