thanks, god

Recently, techies at the University of Oslo built an evolutionary computer that changes the design of it's own hardware using genetic algorithms to optimize performance. This is pretty amazing, considering the now-present possibilities for the rapid evolution of Strong AI by having computers design themselves. It reminds me of Ray Kurzweil talks about the singularity:

"Just like in the real world it can take 20 to 30 thousand generations before the system finds the perfect design to solve the problem, but this will happen in just a few seconds compared to the 8-900,000 years it took humans to go through the same number of generations." via BoingBoing

Yeah, thanks God. Real fair. Asshole.
