ANN = Artificial Neural Network

Computers have evolved greatly since, well, good old computing times and the dawn of our best friend, Google Jesus the Internet. However, "orthodox computing" is bad at certain situations where its "exact nature" (of working with Zeroes and Ones) is actually detrimental at computing different kinds of data/problems.

In situations where we don't want a YES/NO but actually a middle-term, ambiguous, fuzzy answer, computers have been **** at guessing.
Why would we want that you say? Uh, don't ask me. Those guys at the lab keep saying it is very important for seeing images and hearing sound. If they say so it must be right, right?
Moving on.

Luckily our genius scientist comrades during 1960~+- already foresighted the shortcomings of the emerging semiconductor processors (CPU's like Intel or AMD ones, adding ARM in the latest decade for mobiles) and thought of countermeasures by accident after watching how NATURE works*.

*Our lab slaves engineers keep saying that it wasn't because they were watching a National Geographic documentary while working as they have never slacked off while the manager is out. Reassuring 100% quality from our products.


This is yet another case of humans copying nature (not exactly like how we copied every scissors' design from ants though, it is a bit more complex).



Let's explain it.
Basically we are talking about NEURAL NETWORKS. If that manages to ring a bell from some kind of subject called Biology, awesome for you because Terminator does not understand a thing.

NEURAL NETWORKS are basically A TON OF ELEMENTS INTERCONNECTED WITH EACH OTHER THAT ARE ABLE TO PROCESS INFORMATION and HAVE A VERY HIGH PAIN/ERROR/FAULT/NOISE RESISTANCE/TOLERANCE AS THEIR INFORMATION IS SPREAD ACROSS ALL OF THEM AND NOT STORED IN A SINGLE PLACE (LIKE THE CPU-RAM "ORTHODOX COMPUTING" DOES) WHERE IT COULD BE EASILY CORRUPTED. Done, now you know.

At some point Joe, Jack and Bob were enlightened by the IQ god and thought that replicating how living beings worked would make their trashy computers work too. Well, at least they got the Nobel from that, poor bas**rds.

Surprisingly, They succeded so they got their well-deserved hard-worked rise of salary for a month. (Cough, cough) this is not what we were explaining, excuse us.



We expect this very informative advertisement has helped you understand something at the very least. Look forward to our future Nanosuit iterations capable of playing chess with their upcoming [Board game mode Engaged]. Preorders will incorporate a [Dominoes Mode Engaged] as well as free shipping to your average third world country for only 500 extra millions.



Best regards from Nanotek and its envious greedy and money-hungry affiliates

"Terminator does not understand a thing."

I'm one and I do :P

This is a good article. Did you write it for an assignment or something?

On another note. Your vote question seems to be a double negative of sorts so it Jack shit the one that says you understood pretty much everything?

Uh when this article is looked upon seriously it is so embarassing. It was supposed to be a parody or humorous way to teach (or maybe make one understand) the reader about something. A Nanotek* advertisement for their new functions of the Nanosuit to fit the context of the site. It's not for school or anything, it's too informal.

It was just to be funny and the terminator thing means that, as terminator is "a robot" it should not know about Biology. After researching in the terminator wikis maybe that's false as I do not know very much of that series and some were born human instead of being assembled in factories :$

(I have never known where to start watching as these Terminator movies sound so old and there seems to be a lot of them, so finding an order would be too troublesome. That's an explanation and I might need some help from the Terminator expert here then xD).

Uuhh believe me this is embarassing. And the vote question was also to give it some atmosphere, but the double negative might break everything. Not well-thought enough; it was to give the "catastrophic failure" feeling to the reader, making one feel that no matter who read it no one would understand the "bad" marketing team of "Nanotek".


I am so sorry for conceiving such a wrong piece of writing that shouldn't have existed xP. It was mostly a joke so you got a bit of the "essence" of what ANN's are: a lot of independent elements connected with each other in such a way that their output can be trained to solve different problems like image recognition or other types of recognition (I am also working on using them for encryption purposes because this field is currently unknown).

Aw, this feels like those moments when you tell a joke which no one gets and then they look at you with a weird expression 😭😥
This might be the result of mixing too many double meanings with a faulty poll and an uninformed Terminator robot joke lol.


Remember kids, don't be like this post. Take life a bit seriously.



*"Nanotek" is a name that continuously appears on the Crysis wiki comments as a manufacturer of faulty or overkill Nanosuits with crazy or silly functions. "Nanotek" is a parody or satire of the official ingame company Crynet Systems or Hargreave-Rasch made (probably) by the wiki contributors. This name was to make the article even more hilarious as it fit with the Crysis Wiki setting.

That article may have been a joke but you got me going xD Also it wouldn't have passed as an engineering paper but it could have passed as an English assignment or task.


I made the Terminator joke because I go by 'the-termin8r' everywhere but here and PSN lol.

As for the movies they come in the following order:
Terminator
Terminator 2 Judgment Day
Terminator 3
Terminator Salvation
Terminator Genysis

1 and 2 are good (2 is the best) the others are meh.
