My roommate is an electrical engineer and I’ve tinkered in programming since 1990 (I still miss BASIC). For me, this concept is a given. A computer using a simple binary system for everything. It is either X or O, 0 or 1, open or closed. Logically, almost everything can be described like this- or at least we would like everything to be described like this.
This concept, however, still has a lot of work needed on it. Computers can’t yet write poetry or even translate between languages that well yet. How can we better define the rules to the game? Can we develop a broaded way of operating on those rules? What about X, O and L instead of just X and O?
Calculus killed me so I can’t begin to postulate on something like this, but what’s next?
Computers continue to become faster and able to do more calculations per second, but how and when are we going to transform the way which they do calculations?
