Computers have evolved greatly since, well, good old computing times and the dawn of our best friend,
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?
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*.
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.
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
