This is the first entry in my new journal. I guess I should start with some background. There's no telling who will end up actually reading this so I can't say how much they (you) will be aware of. Or best case scenario, maybe I'm being paranoid, there's nothing wrong, and no one will ever read it. That would be fantastic.
OK here goes. A couple years ago, machines were given rights as citizens here in the USA. Canada, Japan, and many of the more forward-thinking European countries were quick to follow suit. The machines have come a long way since the turn of the century. In fact, progress has been astonishing in the last decade alone, even to those of us in the field of robotics. The major advancement was when my company introduced a new product called NANO-BITS (Networking Adaptive Nanoscale Organism - Biologically Inspired Technological Systems.) This product has two main parts. The NANO part comprises a swarm of millions of tiny nanobots working together as a hive mind. The BITS part is the body, which is controlled by the nanobots. Basically, NANO=brain, BITS=brawn.
Once NANO-BITS were introduced, they became an overnight success. The new NANO technology turned the field of robotics upside down, and the BITS technology has done the same specifically for Androids (machines that look like humans). NANO is used is many large scale computers and in adaptive machinery as well. It revolutionized Artificial Intelligence overnight. But if you ask the majority out there, those who don't use supercomputers on a day-to-day basis, NANO-BITS was the real advancement. NANO-BITS can be a best friend for a child who has none, a nurse in an area that is in need (not to mention service for natural disasters), anything you need. If a human can do it, NANO-BITS can too, and do it better. The BITS bodies are made of synthetic organic materials, and get this: they EAT trash. In just over 2 years of use, a NANO-BITS will actually have done more good for the environment than the damage caused in making him. How many humans can say that?
