Expert Systems and Neural Networks

Full-size Expert systems and neural networks, while they have many of the same letters, are two different things. An expert system uses existing information to make decisions about things it knows. An expert system is similar to a person who is an expert in a particular field, except for the fact that an expert system lacks common sense. It can only make decisions based on clearly presented data that it possesses information about. In contrast, a neural network can take in information and determine how the information is related, any patterns that may appear, and what it means. A neural network attempts to function in much the same way as a human brain functions, with many neurones connecting to each other and processing data in different ways.
These two different ways of handling decision-making also have some things in common. For example, they both have the letters "e", "t", "s", and "r" in them (they may have more than just these letters in common, but I am slightly cross-eyed due to an extreme intake of alcohol last night and I can't really see straight).  Another thing these two topics have in common is that they are both very confusing to me, especially neural networks. I'm not really sure what a neural network is, to

Overture doesn't have to be a gamble. Keep in mind that pay-per-click has its limitations such as this fact: If you bid $1 dollar per click, and say, there are 1000 people per month typing your purchased search term/key word, only 5% of them (50 people in this case) will actually click through. This will end up costing you just $50 dollars- and that's for the top spot. Your description copy that accompanies each key word/search term you purchase will be critical in convincing web surfers to click through to you (throw your best offer in there, or incorporate the word "FREE" somehow, or promise them some valuable information (FREE information!) that comes with viewing your web page and/or products. Internet metrics are revealing that you can only count on a 4-5% sales conversion rate for...

Happen. The people in very high positions want a one world currency.
Just imagine everyone doing the conversion over from all existing currencies.
As we increase the debt on the dollar *which is fiat* it reduces its value. As the value goes down we will need to pay a higher interest rate when people lend us funds. And that will mean higher taxes or reductions in govt spending.

The eventual idea is crossing borders will be

Ceremonial.
Senators voted a few years ago to NOT make English the official language.
A couple of years ago it was suggested we learn Spanish so the Spanish speakers do not have to learn English.
Where is the current currency conversion rate at? If pesos are worth more and dollars less... that will make it more likely we dump the dollar. In a conversion process, if the dollar has less of a value than before, that will mean less wealth in the new currency.

Credit cards will give you an un-favorable exchange rate and then charge a service fee for the conversion. Unless its unexpected charge, I'd say bring & use cash.
I bet you canadians like that our dollar is decreasing in value, huh? :(

Hyperinflation is an unchecked increase in the

Money supply usually accompanied by a widespread unwillingness on the part of the population to hold the hperinflationary money for more than the time needed to trade it for something non-monetary to avoid further loss of real value. Social unrest is often a result of hyperinflation. Hyperinflation tends to strike very fast and has devasting effects on the populace.
As we see the increase in monetary supply here in the US, we are also seeing a gradual move to precious metals and commodity stocks. This trend, if left unchecked can quickly turn hyper inflationary. The "shellacking" in the recent mid terms may be an early indication that the natives are restless and social unrest should not be is discounted.
Hyperinflation invariably ends with a conversion to a new fat currency...
