Ancient Intelligence (AI) and Quantum Money (2024 Tayur Challenge)

AI can also mean Average Intelligence, in line with Alan Turing:

No, I’m not interested in developing a powerful brain. All I’m after is just a mediocre brain, something like the President of AT&T.

You know (see TRTR) that I consider Quantum Field Theory (QFT) – see Śrīdhara Brāhmaṇa: Quantum Field Theory – as the modern-day incarnation of Ptolemy’s Epicycles.

Similarly, one might view Machine Learning to be the contemporary version of Numerology.😏

I think of Numerology as a different kind of AI:

Ancient Intelligence.

Applying the rules – by the way, ChatGPT 4o makes some errors in these calculations, so be careful  – from the workbook by Matthew Oliver Goodwin (“Yes, I am a man of considerable leisure”, see Conspicuous Leisure, and recall “Time Pass with Artha” from Weston Brahmin, and because “I like to look at both the Ancient Past and the Far Future at the same time”, see A Brief Timeline of Pre-History) on my name (in English, not Sanskrit) and my birthday (Gregorian calendar, see Tayurian Calendar, not Vedic), I get this summary:

A person with a Life Path Number 22 (“Master Builder”), Expression Number 9 (“Selflessness, Humanitarianism”), Soul Urge Number 5 (“Constructive Freedom”), and Birthday Number 11 (“Master Number”) is a unique blend of practicality, compassion, adventurous spirit, and spiritual insight. This combination suggests a highly ambitious and driven individual with a deep desire to make a positive impact on the world. They are likely to be visionary and innovative, using their practical skills to bring about significant change. Their compassionate and humanitarian nature, combined with a love for adventure and new experiences, makes them dynamic and inspiring.

Looks fine to me!☺️

I was happy to read:

The United Nations Proclaims 2025 as the International Year of Quantum Science and Technology.

IYQ coincides with the 100th anniversary of the birth of modern quantum mechanics — the theory that describes the behavior of matter and energy at atomic and subatomic scales and has made possible many of the world’s most important technologies. Over the past century, quantum theory has become foundational to physics, chemistry, engineering, and biology and has revolutionized modern electronics and global telecommunications. Inventions like the transistor, lasers, rare-earth magnets, and LEDs — technologies that brought the internet, computers, solar cells, MRI, and global navigation into fruition — all exist because of quantum mechanics.

Looking forward, advances in quantum applications could enable new computing and communication models with the potential to accelerate innovations in materials science, medicine, and cybersecurity, among other fields. In this way, quantum science and technology is poised to help address the world’s most pressing challenges — including the need to rapidly develop renewable energy, improve human health, and create global solutions in support of the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals.

In collaboration again with faculty at IIT-Madras (thanks Anil Prabhakar and Prabha Mandayam and others, including the undergraduate students), now the announcement of the 2024 Tayur Challenge:

Quantum Money.

Similar to 2020 Tayur Prize, see also Roll Over Turing, we are focusing on Hardware (recall: ‘Let’s Get Physical’). Differently, the topic is in Quantum Communications and not Quantum Computing, based on this paper that I read last summer:

Demonstration of quantum-digital payments.

The challenge is:

to refine and extend the above demonstration (a) for a greater distance and (b) accommodating multiple merchants and clients and (c) at a lower cost.

What about Astrology and Palmistry? Stay tuned.😉
