What we get from all this is a chatbot that has an extremely broad knowledge base, and the ability to teach or show examples of that knowledge in writing or code.

You could ask it to write a program that illustrates the Pythagorean theorem graphically, and it would give you a python script that does just that.

It is a patient and highly educated teacher.

on the other hand, the demand for more computation power will fund the development of more efficient hardware.

With sufficient advancement, we'll be able to automate complex tasks like construction and mining in space.

If that works out, we'll be able to move some of our destructive industry off world where the pollution is not a factor.

In my opinion, we have no choice but to progress quickly before we get bogged down with the repercussions of our actions.

I am not sure, what i'm thinking of is a gpu that can output a tiles of image data, and an outline that trims the image to a sharply defined shape.

so the monitor would receive an array of images tiled together, and instructions to trim the edges before displaying on screen.

its kind of a pipe dream i had since hearing about vector graphics video codecs last decade, and microleds a few years ago.

What do you think about fitting some logic between the pixels at the cost of pixel density?

I was thinking it could handle some primitive draw operations, like vector graphics and flood fill.

Instead of trying to drive every pixel, you could send tiles of texture with relatively low resolution, and use vector graphics to handle masking of edges.
