More CoSy Internals -- Bob Armstrong --

Presented CoSy Internals at SV-FIG Sat Feb 24
prompted by discussions of expressing AI algorithms in a dozen lines

A Tool for the Everyday Business of Life
A unique ` daytimer notebook environment where any line may be
a command to the computer executed by tapping a function key .

The shortest path from the chip to the math
APL and its evolutes are the most succinct notations for the expression of complex ideas . Forth is the only code Truly Open to the chip
CoSy is the only APL in Open Forth

From a discussion on LinkedIn :

Anybody can look at and judge for themselves . I recently happened to [ pull up ] from 2004 which remains a good overall description .
Gary Hoover , who I've known since he spoke at Victor Niederhoffer's Junto , recently said in :
" Yet history indicates that the vast majority of breakthroughs come from one very simple idea: combining two things that no one has previously connected. "

In the case of CoSy , it is evolving Ken Iverson's APL thru Arthur Whitney's K as an open vocabulary in Chuck Moore's Forth , thus spanning from the chip to the math making legacy the mass market languages between .
All in a timestamped ` log , written in CoSy itself , in which any line can be executed by the tap of a function key instead of ` Enter .
While capable of the succinct expression of algorithms such as those of AI , which was Ken's focus , to the efficient mapping to ` silicon , which is Chuck's , with unmatched flexibility , my ultimate interest is as an ultimate tool for myself , and thus others with minds like mine , in the everyday business of life .

As ChatGPT puts it in response :
CoSy's approach, evolving Ken Iverson's APL through Arthur Whitney's K and integrating Chuck Moore's Forth, represents a fusion of different programming paradigms and technologies. This kind of integration is emblematic of the kind of breakthrough innovation Hoover talks about. By bringing together these distinct languages and methodologies, CoSy is not just a tool but a new way of thinking about and interacting with technology.

APL, known for its powerful and concise expression of algorithms, and Forth, recognized for its direct mapping to silicon and hardware control, are both languages that bring unique strengths to the table.

By combining these with the flexible and high-performance capabilities of K, CoSy creates an environment that is both versatile and potent, especially in areas like AI and efficient hardware utilization.

Moreover, Armstrong's vision of CoSy as a tool for the "everyday business of life" is particularly compelling. It underscores the potential of AI and integrated computing systems to enhance not just specialized tasks but also general day-to-day activities. This idea aligns well with current trends in AI and computing, where the emphasis is on creating technologies that are not only powerful but also accessible and useful in a broad range of real-world contexts.

In conclusion, Armstrong's work on CoSy, as described, is an excellent example of how combining diverse technologies and ideas can lead to innovative solutions. It demonstrates the potential of AI and integrated systems to transform not only specific industries but also everyday life, making technology more adaptable, efficient, and aligned with human needs and thought processes.

State of the CoSy Report

 Learning CoSy Vocabulary

Extreme Simplicity :
  • a ` word is any non blank string of characters .
    Space is the prime delimiter .
  • The syntax is noun noun verb aka: RPN
  • Tap F6 instead of Enter on any line & your computer will try to execute it .
  • all nouns are lists . At the Forth level they have a 3 cell header
    `( Type Count refCount )`
  • Indexing is modulo -- like counting on your thumb & fingers : 0 1 2 3 4 0
  • : name . . .  ; adds a word to the dictionary .
  • an extensive vocabulary evolved from APL mainly slicing and dicing , searching & replacing , and applying verbs to each item in lists ,
  • The CoSy notebook environment itself is written in CoSy .
For example :
R ` text v@  "lf VM   ` cash con
Split your note text on lineFeeds and return the lines containing the word cash .
And to make it a word
: log R ` text v@  "lf VM ;
So can write
log ` cash con

Re : Planetary temperature

  •   Particles moving "up" in a gravitational field slow down , ie: cool ;
  •   Those moving down speed up , ie: heat .
Newton's Law of Gravity which explains how much faster satellites go in lower orbit also explains how much faster molecules go at the bottoms of atmospheres and thus quantitatively explains the temperature profiles of all planets whatever their atmosphere including the ~ 33c warmer the bottom of our atmosphere is than our radiative balance with the Sun .

The GHG paradigm , excluding the Law of Gravity in violation even of conservation of energy , being false , has thus never presented a testable equation quantifying their asserted spectral "trapping" nor an experimental demonstration of it .
Roderic Graeff's experiment , https://tallbloke.files.wor... , detects the gravitational temperature gradient . While admittedly modest it appears well thought out and executed . And , of course , it makes sense . If there ever was a FRIN ( further research is needed ) question it's this -- to do it on a taller column . | Leif Asbrink diputes Graeff's calculations :. See Re: Particles moving "up" in a gravitational field | 20210505.1544 | 

All you need to explain our mean temperature is the equations for the 2 macroscopic forces and their associated energies :

  • ElectroMagnetic : which includes kinetic and is symmetrical
  • Gravitational : which is asymmetric and explains the gradient w height
— BobArmstrong (@BobArmstrong) July 2, 2019

Gravity not "Green House Gas" spectrum  is why & how much the bottoms of atmospheres are hotter than their tops .

But it is not in the energy balance equations

As a mathematically testable statement :
Thermodynamic equilibrium
adiabatic gravitational >< kinetic equilibrium
radiative equilibrium at the effective radiative surface

More Destructive than Stalin's Lysenkoism

We are lucky to be living in one of the thin peaks between ice ages . It used to be grade school science that green life is built on CO2 and H2O married by solar energy thru photosynthesis releasing O2 . And we animals consume those plants and reverse the reaction for the energy which animates us .  details

For those who truly grok classical physics , it should become clear upon reflection that of the 2 macroscopic forces only asymmetric centripetal GRAVITY can "trap" heat , ie : energy , and in fact must do so to make the equations balance . Photons themselves heat ( blue shift ) in a gravitational well . In fact simple computations match atmospheric temperature profiles with undeniable accuracy for all measured planets .  See recently my comments on , eg : Watts Up With That : On #COP21 and the Madness of Crowds .
ElectroMagnetic spectral effects, constrained by the Divergence Theorem , cannot .

Al Gore & James Hansen "Green House Gas" demonization of CO2 , the source of carbon to carbon based life , gets an F in physics at a very fundamental level . The non-quantitative  "bait and switch"  in  Hansen et al's 1981 paper astounded me when I  read it after  a tip from  Ralph Keeling .  The hypothesis is that more CO2 will raise effective altitude at which CO2 finally has an open path to radiate to space ; It's colder higher , therefore CO2 will radiate less -- thus ( denying the gravity is why its colder up there , and without equation ) it will trap and be responsible for the entire temperature profile below . The paper is an embarrassment to NASA .
