How to save the planet

Actually, according to Marvin Minksy, the co-founder of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Artificial Intelligence lab, who is according to some people ‘the smartest guy we know’, it won’t be too hard at all.

Of course it doesn’t hurt to start now, but according to Marvin solar energy advances follow the law of Moore (not More, Moore). Moore says every 2 years computers will be twice as fast and twice as powerful. So far that has been true for over 30 years.
