I admire all our contemporary scientists living in 21st Century. Of all
the scientists, Stephen Hawking is the greatest though he is severely
disabled by motor neuron disease also known as amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis (or ALS). He is the greatest theoretical cosmologists of our
time.(Christian Science Monitor). After reading his "A Brief History of
Time", I started investigating the technology used to interpret his
thoughts. I came to understand about "PREDICTIVE TEXT" a technology that
allows some common words to be entered by a single keypress for each
letter..It is an Input Method. An input method is an operating system
component or program that allows users to enter characters and symbols
not found on their input device. His latest prediction is that "we" are
not alone. Aliens exist, he says.
At an event marking the 50th anniversary of NASA on Monday, Stephen
Hawking, Newton's heir as the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the
University of Cambridge, answered the question, “Are we alone?” His
answer is short and simple; probably not!
Stephen Hawking proclaims in a new television upcoming Discovery Channel
documentary series, that in a universe with 100 billion galaxies, each
containing hundreds of millions of stars, it is unlikely that earth is
the only place where life has evolved.
"To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens
perfectly rational," he said, according to Great Britain's The Sunday
Times. "The real challenge is working out what aliens might actually be
He is a legend, we adore him. Another thing which amazes me is the
technology used for revealing his mind i.e.communication technology by
which we interpret his thoughts. Without this technology, we may not
know this legend.
Celebrated Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has selected and is using
NeoSpeech's Text-to-Speech engine, VoiceText, as his new voice.
VoiceText is integrated into Dr. Hawking's communicator, E Z Keys,
enabling him to clearly communicate with the outside world.
Thank the Almighty for such innovations in IT.
