Prologue or Long Journey From Wood Pointer to Artificial Intelligence

One day I seriously thought about a question that had been bothering me for a long time. Why do some people come up with some innovation and invent something new, but someone is not up to it? What makes it possible to come to the right decision, and why is this right decision beyond the power of others?

I began to analyze and came to an exciting conclusion.


It allows you to make the most remarkable discoveries. However, I cannot say that others think differently. They assume the same way. So what's the deal? And it's not just about thinking. It's about the approach. And then, I began to analyze the inventors' thinking, their peculiarity, and why it is beyond the power of the rest. Is there a way to develop the skills of an innovator?

So I began to study and analyze what features are inherent in the inventor, how they think, how they see the new, and what allows them to get a result. I dived into the abyss of history to learn more about inventions and inventors, but the main thing was how they came to a decision and got an innovative result.

The world around us is so amazing that we are sometimes simply amazed at how close the connections between things, people, and events are. From time to time, we discover the relationship of concepts where it seemed least expected to find it. Thinking about this, I noticed a wooden pointer next to the computer. And my eyes fell on the picture, which depicted a robot with artificial intelligence. What is the connection between these two unrelated things?

The unexpected relationship

At first glance, no connection! What can the most outstanding achievement of the human mind and an ordinary wooden stick have in common? But this is only at first glance. However, to answer this question, let's plunge into history and trace the stages of improvement of an ordinary but extraordinary pointer.

So, once Homo Sapience picked up a stick and received at the same time a tool, a weapon, support when walking, a crossbar for drying clothes or meat, a bow for hunting, and much more. And yet, when the first schools appeared in ancient Greece, a small stick began to play the role of a pointer. At first, the stick was made in the form of a spike pointed at the end; then, the artisans began to add elements of symbolism, folk painting, and ornate carving when making it. And now we have a pointer in our hands and a whole work of art.

However, centuries passed. And now, when humanity stepped into the twentieth century, in particular, its second half, small gadgets with a thin laser beam began to play the role of pointers covered with openwork carving and painting. They no longer looked like their wooden ancestors but performed the same function: pointing to the focused object.

But a little more time passes, and pointers of a completely different type, other designs, and purposes appear. What are they? For example, these GPS operating in the navigation system show us the way to ships and aircraft. What does artificial intelligence have to do with it? A little patience! We must understand that AI is not the only robot that improves almost daily. These are also systems of control and regulation of complex modern processes. But unlike the previous electronic regulation and control systems, AI can make decisions in non-standard emergencies. He thinks like a person and therefore is able to make creative decisions.

And then our pointer appears. Modern AI cannot work without information support, and this is where our gadget came in handy, only in a different form. These are the same GPS systems and beacons of radio modules. These are the program codes of the final goals and the problem formulation through coded signals based on the principles of quantum entanglement.

As for quantum entanglement, this principle determines the future of AI. Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in which the quantum state of two or more objects becomes interconnected, despite the distance between them. As the conquest of space is now one of the most sought-after branches of science and technology, quantum entanglement plays a vital role as a pointer for determining goals and objectives.

To sum it up

Summarizing the above, an ordinary wooden pointer, which was used hundreds of BC, is a foremother of such a complex phenomenon as the control and management of artificial intelligence. A fantastic transformation that answers many questions and determines not only the connection of times and generations but also helps to model and predict our future.

And so I propose to go on an exciting journey to the country of inventions and inventors. You will learn incredible stories about great discoveries, unsurpassed daredevils, great sages, and tireless travelers.

So, go!
