IBM announced a new line of education computer systems. IBM will provide both hardware and software for this educational computers. IBM Professor Einstein is the first in this series and this computer system is for the subject Physics. All the Physics books and research papers published so far are stored in this computer. Using this system, any university can deliver a global lecture to any student on one to one basis. The university can provide a customized lecture through this computer system and all the questions of the students are answered by the computer. Computer will rank its answers on a 1 to 10 scale and all questions and answers with ratings are made available to the university faculty for analysis and improvement.

    1. Thank you for the comment. Please write a guest post for the blog. A science fiction idea. You are an inventor and can come up with great ideas. I felt suddenly yesterday that SciEngFi will give a lot more scope for imaginative thinking. Some ideas will catch the imagination of good inventors. Of course once again, millions will be coming out with ideas and we do not know whose idea will be captured by the real engineers and scientists.

      You can write a story on how a very wise boy is developed with proper womb education by a wisdom couple. In this also, you can make the character of wife the first wisdom person and how she influences her husband to become wise and also the entire suburban area she lives in. Well she first became wise by reading Sajid Khan's articles and by personal discussions with Sajid Khan.
