The Inner Workings of Alan Turing Alan Turing had once stated that “we can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done” and surely enough, Alan did more than anyone could imagine (Hom). Alan Turing, an accomplished mathematician, philosopher, codebreaker, strange visionary, and a gay man, ("Alan Turing: the Enigma") was not always known for his accomplishments towards technology. Turing tended to be very aloof and most of his contributions to the world were created in secret or in the privacy of his home (Ferris) but nevertheless his technological breakthroughs continue to modernize and revolutionize old ideas of technology and what it can be used for. Turing managed to break the “unbreakable” Nazi
The terms like communication network, the Artificial Intelligence courses, an open-source teaching platform and virtual laboratories indicate that Carr considers his audience well-educated. The detailed discussion about “large-scale data processing and machine learning” suggests that Carr’s targeted audience is very well acquainted with the technological terms as well as with background of the addressed issue (Carr 2-5). The author likely tries to influence the opinions of progressive educators, today’s students, and current participants of the online classes or those who has already had the first-hand experience with the distance
Hofstra’s mission statement affirms that its goal is “to provide a quality education to its students in an environment that encourages, nurtures, and supports learning through the free and open exchange of ideas”. After attending a conference at my high school with a Hofstra representative, I was enlightened with details that support the validity of this statement. I would describe myself as an open-minded person with a desire to broaden my education and interests. I truly believe that Hofstra University will aid me in fulfilling this goal. Psychology has always been an extremely interesting subject to me.
Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Penumbra’s goal is to motivate his members to unlock Manutius’s codex vitae. In contrast to Corvina, he has the ability to adapt to new knowledge that goes beyond what has been taught through the Unbroken Spine. As Penumbra encourages the use of technology in the fellowship, he states: “computers, my boy[…] They hold the key for us[…] If computers can help you solve the Founder’s Puzzle, they can do much more for this fellowship” (Sloan 130). Yet having no prior knowledge for technology and perceived as as old fashioned, Penumbra evolves to new knowledge as he begins to understand the benefits of using technology and how it creates
Since we lack sufficient knowledge of comprehending what is necessary to mimic the human mentality, we cannot affirm or agree how to build an AI that reaches this limit. For let us say one day we do obtain all the necessary information to understand the human mentality, how do we program human intelligence into an objective form of artificial intelligence when the human psyche itself is subjective. An additional issue is humans learn and understand the world from individual experiences. In which, how would it be possible to create a form of artificial intelligence that could learn the same way. For it would require authentic interactions with the world and other people, rather gaining knowledge by itself or from social media.
I am accustomed to a rigorous course load and having to manage my time. Being a part of the Honors College, surrounded by those who share the same ideals and high standards as I do, will only further my success. Living in an academically inclined environment would allow for me to make great working relationships and friendships! Not only that, but the Honors College provides many opportunities for study groups and extra help; which will be rather beneficial considering I am planning on majoring in biochemistry. I would be an exceptional candidate for the Honors College because I am not only interested in getting a fantastic education, but I want to get involved in the school and make my college experience the best that it can be.
My biggest goal in college Earl Nightingale argues, ”Your problem is to bridge the gap between where you are now and the goal you intended to reach”. I believe college education is something to be endured in order to become qualified to obtain certain kinds of jobs. After finishing a bachelor degree in computer science, I become a data engineer. My job requires me to have a strong background in programming and statistic which I learned in the classes. And the habits I built at the university such as self-teaching, critical thinking and the ability to collecting and processing information help me a lot during my work.

As I learnt new concepts, I appreciated solving difficult problems and made sure they helped me form a framework for solving new ones. As a part ofacademic project, I implemented the concepts acquired by developing a Human Resource Management System which facilitates employee-HR interaction. Another academic project which is in progress is Multi Language Block Ciphering using Two Dimensional Substitution Array which will be dealing with the cryptography techniques. Balancing my theoretical and practical knowledge, I made sure my undergraduate study would be a stimulating educational
