Here’s to the insane, the crazy ones, the misfits, the fools, the rebels, the troublemakers and the ones who see things differently. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they alter things. They lead us down a new path - and while some may see them as insane, we see brilliance - because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can alter the world, are the ones who do.

- Inspired by Steve Jobs

 

 

Ever since we provided a glimpse of the Turing Phone Cadenza last Friday we’ve received an overwhelming amount of requests from people all over the world eager to learn more about the Outer Blueprint program. In the coming months we will release a video that will take you behind the scenes of TRI’s R&D lab and how we intend to reimagine the mobile handset. We believe mobile phones are still very far from their full potential. With a growing need for sophisticated artificial intelligence, the computing power needed to facilitate the kind of AI we envision for consumers of all types is much more than what is currently available in the market. We also believe distributed computing is the way mobile technology is heading, hence our exploitation of the concept of multiple CPU integration.

TRI plans on connecting multiple CPUs via WiGig by implementing an ad-hoc driver to the 60GHz channel via on-board USB3.0. This complicated computing process stores a transient matrix in SSD of CPU(1), then it recomputes and shares the transient matrix with the other SSD of CPU(2) simultaneously. This results in the CPUs sharing their computing power in parallel. Such proprietary technology enables TRI to achieve never-seen-before computing power on a mobile device. So what exactly is this technology intended for? The answer is - Computational Intelligence (CI).

TRI is developing a new type of mobile ecosystem built around AI and CI and we may see the very first Artificial Intelligence Program (AIP) on the Cadenza surfacing in 2017. By then, TRI will be inviting developers from all over the world to be a part of this computing revolution.

Some of you may have learned that TRI has an R&D center in the city of Salo, Finland. For those of you that aren’t aware, Salo has had an impeccable history of mobile phone design and production since the early 1990s. TRI has established a manufacturing facility right where Nokia® and Microsoft® used to produce their mobile phone prototypes.

In the coming months TRI will strengthen its presence in Salo and start building prototypes for the Turing Phone Cadenza. Salo has an enormous pool of mobile phone talent who specialize in every possible facet of mobile phone design and production. If there’s one location in the world where the Turing Phone Cadenza can become a reality, it’s Salo, Finland.

The second project in the Outer Blueprint program involves the sibling of the Cadenza. We were very careful in choosing the name to describe this special device with sophisticated AI and CI capabilities. Inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, we decided to go with the term “Monolith.” Monoliths are long-lived and reliable machines able to survive for millions of years buried in the ground or in space with no apparent damage. They are virtually indestructible and encourage humankind to progress with technological development and space travel.

Behold, the Turing Monolith Chaconne.

Like the Turing Phone Cadenza, the Turing Monolith Chaconne utilizes multiple CPU architecture for parallel computing and is a device that falls in between the mobile phone and tablet categories.

In memory of the great violinist Jascha Heifetz, who took violin solo performance to a new dimension, we named the first Turing Monolith - Chaconne. The most impressive musical piece performed by Heifetz, then age 16, was during his 1917 debut performance at Carnegie Hall nearly a hundred years ago. Here’s a link to the original score.

 

If you think you’re insane enough to want to alter the world, we invite you to be a part of the Turing Phone Cadenza and Turing Monolith Chaconne team. TRI Finland warmly welcomes you. Email us at changetheworld@turingphone.com to subscribe to our team of misfits and rebels.

 

Until next time,
