It is a full 3d model, not 2d or a quadrant.



At least we are finally getting some interesting news.

Re: Skynet is coming.

I had to look up "Time of Flight camera". What a stunning concept ... every pixel does rangefinding! Early self-driving cars had a couple of LIDAR units stuck on high corners. $30k a pop, and just gave a 2D picture. Skynet indeed! Every Terminator needs a pair of these. What I don't like ...

Re: EMC2 news

I find it highly improbable that the people entrusted with this work do not know how to code properly. It never occurred to me that there should be any question regarding their competence. For one thing, the output would demonstrate it if that were the case. Do you honestly think these people don't...

Re: EMC2 news

I am well aware that many people with computer science degrees are highly concerned about code efficiency. My point here is that while it may be desirable, it isn't essential for this purpose that the code be efficient. What is essential is that it gets the physics right, and if you accomplish that...

Not because their end result is wrong, but because of the inefficient means they go about the work. It is like watching a cave man trying to figure out fire at times.

Re: EMC2 news

You can't do scaling until you have the first principles model figured out. There are some physics going on that were not understood, or to a degree even known. It is a very complex system. You can't have the reprentation of first principles figured out until you have the data structures planned ou...
