Seahorse is a member of the Special Humans Investigation Team or "S.H.I.T." He lives and patrols a dying world where millions of half-humans called "waterheads" struggle to... More > survive in the ruins of a decaying city.
They are not the only ones struggling, as Freudian's id, ego and super-ego rage inside Seahorse who also struggles to find an identity in a world where there are no more Seahorses, only loneliness, pain, and death.
It's a life void of life until a chance encounter brings Amber into Seahorse's life, and with her beautiful eyes and face comes the warmth and feeling that only another's touch can bring.
But the warmth and feeling of Amber's love are soon replaced with the reality that behind the physical touch hides rejection, jealousy, loneliness, pain and eventual death, and once again, Seahorse finds he cannot run from the reality of the streets and finds himself living in them, living with the waterheads, but not patrolling, he has gone full circle and become one of them.< Less
The introduction of Turbo codes in 1993 was evidence of the attainability of the
error correction performance bounds derived by Shannon in 1948. The original
turbo codes consisted of two recursive... More > convolutional codes concatenated in
parallel and decoded using an iterative message passing algorithm consisting
of two Maximum a posteriori Probability (MAP) decoders. The astounding
performance of these codes resulted in a surge in the research activity in the area
of concatenated codes and iterative decoding techniques. The idea was soon
extended to other codes and code combinations as well as iterative schemes
using different techniques in their iterations.< Less
In a top secrete experiment, a research team creates the first operational quantum computer. The computer is a synthetic DNA intended to absorb hostile computer networks as opposed to infiltrating... More > them electronically. Unwittingly to the team, when the program is turned on, it quickly absorbs all atoms, infecting all atoms of the world, turning the world into one giant operating system that can't be shut down except by its creator, who designed himself into the program as a failsafe. Since the program has the ability to manipulate atoms like DNA, it takes human form and promises her creator everlasting life on this earth, to live like Adam and Eve forever. But, nothing last forever, especially not human love, and this love between creator and computer is not natural.< Less
