Quora Q&A: Does Anyone Actually Use Desktop Linux?

Quora Q&A: Does Anyone Actually Use Desktop Linux?

After a long time I logged in to Quora and while I was going through the Q&As which were displayed on my Screen I saw this question Does Anyone Actually Use Desktop Linux? Being an Open Source Enthusiast and also a Technical Volunteer for Help Nepal Network's E-Library Project, I believed this question needs a solid answer. Well while I saw the question it already had 100+ answers, But I still took chance to answer my experience about Desktop Linux.
And here is my answer:
Why Not?

Edubuntu installed on KU Lab for Training E-LIBRARY Volunteers
Here at Kathmandu University, Nepal our computer lab's hundreds of Desktop user FEDORA and Ubuntu. I can happily say that everyone here at University is familiar about OpenSource Technologies
We volunteers from Kathmandu University Open Source Community have established E-Library using Edubuntu(A UBUNTU Distribution for Educational Purpose).
The library is set up using LTSP Package. In a school there are one one server and 10clients. The E-Library is used by students from Class one to 8. Which is on average 200students from one school use those computers daily. And till the date, there are almost 30+E-Libraries in Nepal. Project is a joint collaboration of HELP NEPAL NETWORK and DoCSE, KU with the Moto ONE E-LIBRARY PER DISTRICT

I don’t have enough experience in Artificial Intelligence to provide you sufficient and promising answer buy as per my understanding:
  • An Artificially Intelligent Machine has achieved some level of accuracy in Image Processing, machine learning is already 97% accurate in comparison to Human, sound recognizition is also on its hipe, Deep Learning has increased the performance of many tech giants, Internet of Things today is all about being of service with some intelligence.

    Artificially Intelligent Machine can watch a music video process each image frame and at the same time can recognize the voice and the stanzas. But it fails to perceive the sensation of the music and also lacks the knowledge about what message is the song trying to give.

    Computer Science still needs much work in combining the existing achievement and make them a composite intelligence first before moving further.
  • Defining AI: May be there is still not a concrete vision about AI and what sort of Intelligence are we expecting from a machine. Everyone seems to be applying intelligence in their machine. But I would love to call most of such machine are just solving problems by fetching the solutions(patters) stored in their memory by their programmer).
  • We also fail to feed the knowledge about cognitive science in a machine.
  • Human Brain is a mystery box to lean into and dig deep for understanding how it performs the computation in fraction of second. And having understood in detail about human brain scientists replicate neural networks. It works very efficiently than anything better, but still solving the mystery of human brain could lead the breakthrough in AI
  • The architectural design of the microprocessor limits the computation speed when it comes to the billions of information processing to answer a basic query.

Will advances in Artificial Intelligence lead to technological unemployment?

Some weekends are well spent exploring new ideas and news about something you love. This weekend I again read some of my bookmarked answers on +Quora all of them were about Artificial Intelligence, Artificial general intelligence , Cognitive thinking, human psychology etc. Link provided below is my answer on quora about "If Artificially Intelligent technologies will lead to technological Unemployment". Also there are some more interesting answers by rest of the enthusiasts. Do provide your feedback.

  1. Sharing the link about my own answer might seem unlikely. But I wanna mention that this sharing is done just in Curiosity to add new node to my Network of like minded people who like to share their comments about Artificial Intelligence. 
  2. If sharing the links violates any legal terms of Quora, I will immediately delete this article.
