艾伦·凯(Alan Kay)名言

I've been a Fellow in a number of companies: Xerox, Apple, Disney, HP. There are certain similarities because all the Fellows programs were derived from IBM's, which itself was derived from the MIT 'Institute Professor' program.

我曾在很多公司工作过:施乐、苹果、迪士尼、惠普。有一定的相似之处,因为所有的研究员项目都来自IBM,而IBM本身也来自麻省理工学院的“学院教授”项目。

I had the fortune or misfortune to learn how to read fluently starting at the age of three. So I had read maybe 150 books by the time I hit 1st grade. And I already knew that the teachers were lying to me.

从三岁开始,我就幸运或不幸地学会了如何流利地阅读。所以到一年级的时候我已经读了大概150本书。我早就知道老师在骗我。

It's hard to change information in books, but if we have everything online, then a somewhat untrustworthy group of people controlling the thing - which I think is what we have - gives us '1984.'

很难改变书中的信息,但如果我们把所有的东西都放在网上,那么一个有点不可信的人控制着这个东西——我认为这就是我们所拥有的——给了我们“1984”

Science requires a society because even people who are trying to be good thinkers love their own thoughts and theories - much of the debugging has to be done by others.

科学需要一个社会,因为即使是那些试图成为优秀思想家的人也热爱自己的思想和理论——很多调试工作必须由他人完成。

Some people worry that artificial intelligence will make us feel inferior, but then, anybody in his right mind should have an inferiority complex every time he looks at a flower.

有人担心人工智能会让我们感到自卑,但是,任何一个头脑正常的人,每次看一朵花,都应该有自卑感。

In the commercial world, you have this problem that the amount of research you can do in a company is based on how well your current business is going, whereas there actually should be an inverse relationship: when things are going worse, you should do more research.

在商业世界里,你会遇到这样一个问题:在一家公司里,你能做的研究的数量取决于你目前的业务进展如何,而实际上应该有一个相反的关系:当情况变得更糟时,你应该做更多的研究。

All the companies I've worked for have this deep problem of devolving to something like the hunting and gathering cultures of 100,000 years ago. If businesses could find a way to invent 'agriculture,' we could put the world back together and all would prosper.

我工作过的所有公司都有一个很深的问题,那就是向10万年前的狩猎和采集文化转型。如果企业能找到一种发明“农业”的方法,我们就能让世界重新团结起来,一切都会繁荣昌盛。

The protean nature of the computer is such that it can act like a machine or like a language to be shaped and exploited.

计算机千变万化的特性使得它可以像一台机器或一种语言一样被塑造和利用。
