Jeremy Clarkson should do more war stories and non car related documentaries as all of his documentaries have been brilliant.
He is the best, in the world
just more of him, lol.
The AntiKythera Mechanism Computer was around 2,500 years ago... and then religion made people stupid for 2,000 years and produced The Dark Ages... then The Renaissance got us learning and back into knowledge again... What Clarkson says is written by other people...
This program seems to be from the early 00’s. The amount of technological advancements since then is quite remarkable in itself
@IvoK you can, of course you can... soon as the military makes the technology go public, like they did with computers before people could buy one or even believed it existed... in what world do you live in, unicorn valley?
@jose marques can I buy one invisible cloak? one would suffice
that's what everybody said about stuff that wasn't invented yet, yet it aged poorly for them. but yeah, they got that one already, try some research for a change
@jose marques invisible cloaks? i mean most of the remainder of your reply is sf too, but... invisible cloaks? don't watch movies any more!
It's nice to have someone like Clarkson talk about AI as he is sceptical. People in the field get too excited and always overestimate the "intelligence" of computers. They especially talk in a way that make laymen overestimate it even more.
@Grey Hunter i know that
@Grey Hunter corrected ny comment
@Nickoboss29 car enthusiasts don't want a driverless cars. Wannabe car enthusiasts do.
Newsflash. SKYNET went live in 2022. AI is now
@Anthony Brooksbank nobody wants a driverless car apart for non car enthusiasts
Only Jeremy would open up a documentary on computers by beating one with a hammer
He's trying to fix it
Some Guys On XBL; well, it is Jezza's favorite tool, aside from the shotgun
Jeremy Clarkson is a legend
I watched this in 8th grade programming class and it’s still one of my favorite documentaries
I think Jeremy could develop his talents to be able to teach pupils through a series of school programmes. He could obviously cover history, as to whether he could apply himself to physics and geography, I’m sure he would be able to be utilised throughout many areas of the school educational programme. I’m aware that many parents are preferring home schooling nowadays, and he could drop into that slot beautifully. Jeremy, if you’re interested, I’d love to work in with you to help the next generation of developing young adults. I dare to offer myself, as it is obvious, a steady hand is needed on editing and presentation.
Sometimes I wonder what would've happend if you could go back in time and convince these scientists to keep working whilst you gave them the resources to work with. What a different world we would live in now.
Jeremy Clarkson, the best TV presenter in the world
'..and I definately don't want anything PC inserted in me' And that is why JC is one of the very few great people alive at the moment. He says it like it is!
This is awesome and so relevant today. I love that bit around 46:34 if that had red eyes and you painted it gunmetal or made it out of steel, it would look exactly like the endoskeleton of The Terminator =P And the bit about augmentation part reminds me of Deus Ex and loads of films, it's starting to go into proper augmentation and cyborgs and stuff, it's happening now, bonkers. It's very clever and awesome for people that have had really bad accident and injuries and stuff.
Between autonomous drones, the Boston Dynamic robots, and now OpenAI - it seems Prof. Kevin Warwick was spot on. 51:54
Once again spot on... twenty years on and it has all come to pass, and more. The next twenty years may be very interesting indeed.
It's probably also the closest he's ever come to fixing a computer lol
This is a brilliant doc; I just wish it had English subtitles
Interesting that music by Thomas Newman written for the sound track of the film, "American Beauty" was used in this series. It plays behind the description of what happened to Colossus and Alan Turing at 29:00 to 30:30.
everything was better "back in the days". they even used "I'll find you" by "Hundred Reasons" at 36:41 to 37:18
Is this program still being produced? its awesome..
I love this things... He said we'll see in 20 years time, military machines that think for them self's and a few weeks ago I read an article about a Chinese Lab where the machines killed the creators and one of those were self reconstruction it self...AI is frikkin scary
Its insane how the government treated Alan Turing - he should have experienced the recognition and praise he deserved!
I loved the bit where Alan Turing had a conversation with machine with AI.
This is so up to date! I enjoyed the beginning so much :D
At the "microscopic level" from the computer's perspective, it is actually the TRANSISTOR which changed history, even the electronic valve did not cause the changes in electronics the transistor brought about.
pepe cohetes I think you are correct - that that was a little too swiftly glossed over. Going from valves straight to the printed circuit and chip without talking about the importance of miniaturisation that transistors brought about, especially in the role of computers within small corporations etc. Computers literally shrank to 100th their size overnight, and made them super reliable and accessible to many more people, and reducing the cost of computers enormously. Mind you, the whole history of transistors probably would have taken up 20 minutes of the documentary given enough background around their development.. At the very least it would have added 5 to 10 minutes of the documentary, that probably wasn't thought to be that important at the time. He did mention the transistor briefly, so at least give him that. I think the important, or perhaps, salient point made, was that in 1940 transistors weren't available, so all scientists had to work with was the valve - and between 1939 and 1945, it was the valve that changed history. The transistor was still ten years away.
Yeah, he talks of 1978 being primitive when he started working, but the pocket electronic calculator/computer was around starting in about 1970... in 1966, we had a desktop electronic calculator like the size of a tabletop TV when I started at GM engineering... I was amazed that it was completely silent, unlike the mechanical calculators in high school...
Yeah, Clarkson really missed the boat here....1948 Bell labs, the transistor.
Yes!, The Victorian Babbage Difference engine was programmable. It even had its own version of a Operating system by Ada Lovelace
When my school got it's first computer in 1981 I was expecting something that takes up a whole wall with flashing lights, reel to reel tape and ticker tape....I was kind of let down when it was just a TV with an attached keyboard, a Radio Shack TRS-80.
not even 2 minutes in, and he's destroyed a laptop with a hammer.. yup, this is not a Jeremy impostor, it's the real Clarkson
RIP to John B Goodenough and mad respect to him for inventing RAM
RIP? He just turned 100, still very much with us.
In 2004 they gave it 20 years, but 14 years later in 2018, you already had have robots escaping labs, military dogs capable of resisting aggressions, killer drones, AI such as Alexa and others way more advanced that the military never tells us of, microchips and digital tattoos, invisible cloaks, now the meta verse... And notice how some of the thoughts these guys are vocalizing hit pretty scary. I wonder how Skynet will be called...
@Kevin of course, but it doesn't need much more than what they have now for being used as some armed patrol unit, and I bet they won't even mind a few bloody mishaps along the way
Eh. AI is a lot stupider than most people think it is, even the most advanced stuff. You can make an AI do _one thing,_ and it will do it in ways and with such proficiency that it's nauseating and a deeply unsettling. Then you try to have that same AI do something that's a fraction of a percentage of a sliver different from what it was made to do and it will very confidently shred its own guts into ribbons and explosively shit them into its pants in front of the whole class and then stand there smiling and expecting to be patted on the head and told what a good job it just did. AI is so astoundingly stupid that even when it does something orders of magnitude better than a human can, it doesn't even know what it just did. The truly scary thing about AI is 't how smart it is, it's that it doesn't have the slightest ability to know when it has accomplished a great feat and when it has catastrophically fucked everything up. If you gave an AI control of a robot arm, it would be perfectly happy to pick up its own hard drive and force it into a shredder. The way an AI works isn't by figuring anything out in a way we would understand. The way an AI works is that it simulates every possible way that it could fuck something up and then chooses what it's going to output, usually randomly, from whatever options are left over. This is why it takes so much more computing grunt to train an ai than it does to use one. It's not thinking on the fly by the time you're using it. It's already pre-calculated every possible input and output that exists within the parameters set by the programmer ahead of time, all it does after that is reference this pre-calculated dataset and return a value that is closest to the input you fed it. This is why AI works great until you push it too hard. It can only precalculate so many branching trees of probability before it runs into a brick wall of exponentiality. Current machine learning has a lot that it can give us, but the path to a generalized (sentient/ self-aware/ skynet-like) AI it ain't
So, Clarkson, tell us about what happened when you popped out to the shops to buy discount cornflakes. "It's a story of sex and suicide, a tale of obsession and excess . . . "
sounds like his description of him eating steak
pmsl not always obviously, i decide my own discounts
god i did a skit way back in high school for spanish class that resembled jeremy beating up the computer and i got stares of wtf from the entire class. good to know i'm not the only one with that kind of humor.
Man I've been looking forever for this. Thanks for uploading.
When Jeremy said they can even chop vegetables and then they show this 2:05. It cracked me up XD
I love Clarksons' American accent! The world will eventually need *FAAVE COMPEWTERS*
Excellent, Mr Clarckson ! Onxe again 😊
Shoutout to the audio crew on this episode for using "I'll find you" by "Hundred Reasons" at 36:41 to 37:18 I want to live in the year 2000. and QOTSA at 46:16 someone in the audio crew was a major "Hundred Reasons" fan. "If I could" at 52:55
I assume a valve in the U.K. is what us Americans called a "tube".
PassiveSmoking the toob
***** Yes. Vacuum tube = Thermionic valve
Jeremy proves again: there are useful ways to use a hammer :D
He can narrate anything.
A documentary about computers, without any mention of Ada Lovelace, is like a documentary about aircraft mentioning Orville and neglecting to mention Wilbur.
After seeing what ChatGPT can do, this is eerily accurate
1:30 Jeramy showing the proper way of fixing a laptop
Rule 1; Never fall out with a good engineer… You need them badly
Love the way they used Rage Against The Maschine in this docu.
Watching this and hearing Jeremy talking about tanks and planes with no one in them in 20 years time @ 52:40 after just watching James May race a driver less truck through rough terrain in Top Gear 19x05 makes me thing how far the military has actually got today, 9 years after this was made.
I wouldn't doubt that the military had prototype driverless tanks already when this was made. And we know they had drones. The military only reveals things once they've already got something much better ready to go.
Oh Jeremy, you had no idea how far AI was gunna go. You would have been terrified.
Turing gets all the praise, I'd never heard of Tommy flowers! Respect to him.
100 million transistors in that little Athlon CPU... And now in 2023 the GPU I've had for two years has 28.3*billion* good lord how time changes
According to this script: "No one went to Babbage's funeral." A few lines later and his family are standing around the grave. "His closest relatives". Did Clarkson write this?
1:10 That laptop didn't need to die (´；д；`). It could have run GNU/Linux. Actually there were many Women with pencils even in the UK. In the USA "computers" were assumed to be female. 25:25 1600 valves, not 1800 26:50 They ordered 12, only 10 were made. 28:45 They were smashed or burned, and at least one was thrown down a mineshaft. No indication that any parts were salvaged. Also, no surviving witness has ever mentioned that any Colossus machines survived (but they could have, and the wording of a denied plea for declassification to the prime minister _suggests_ a Colossus or a derivative was operational in 1975) 28:55 Suicide by biting a cyanide laced apple does somewhat fit Turing's death. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves was his favorite movie and he had discussed the poison apple with others. However, he was also known to sometimes be caress with cyanide that he used to electroplate spoons with gold. He usually ate an apple before bed, and sometimes did not finish eating it. And the apple in question was not tested for cyanide. He did not show any outward signs. No suicidal talk, no seeking of means (however, he already had cyanide), he spoke hopefully about his future, he did not express loathing of himself (he even cheerfully joked about his gynoclamastia, "no doubt I shall emerge from it all a different man, but quite who I've not found out" ), no saying of goodbyes, and he continued his work for years after his conviction where he was accepted (friends remained friends, he kept his civilian job. But he'd been stripped of his clearance and barred from any government related work). He was actively porting TuroChamp and Machiavelli chess programs from paper to the Ferranti Mark 1 computer (an historical landmark he'd waited decades to attempt as no computers existed when these programs were written). Finally, The autopsy showed more evidence of cyanide inhalation than cyanide ingestion. Suicide with no outward indications is of course not unheard of, but rare. In the end, it is all inconclusive yet points more toward accident than suicide. Attitudes of the day certainly favored the idea that homosexuals would commit suicide but psychological studies indicate 42 years old is very unusually late for such an occurrence. 38:00-38:12 Wow. He nails it here. And that is very impressively unexpected for Clarkson 43:00 LOL! Overall, thumbs up.
Funny watching this in 2022 and we have self driving cars and computers with basic AI in everyone’s pockets 😂
So Charles Babbage is the Victorian James May.
I'd love to see Jeremy playing with chatgpt, visiting Boston Dynamics, and reviewing M3gan today.
I sure am glad I have a computer so I could watch this, it was never broadcast in my country :)
I love Clarkson's American accent.
I believe this may have been the best 2 minutes to any video that I've ever seen.
Dangerous computers that could think for themselves in 20 years, and this video is 12 years old. Only 8 years left to Skynet.
I like Clarkson. However despite Jeremy Clarksons anecdotes, this is actually a very comprehensive history of the computer, from the very beginnings and even into the future. Good stuff
"In 1941, Zuse followed his earlier machine up with the Z3, the world's first working electromechanical programmable, fully automatic digital computer." Germans built the first real computer.
Electromechanical, yes. Fully digital, yes. Not fully electronic, though.
22:08 does anyone know if Jeremy ever managed to work out how to make this??
1:30 Clarkson smashing up a computer 😂😂
It doesnt matter what he does, he still cannot say 'world' without trying to make it sound epic
right at the beginning of this video classic lololol love how insane he can get
surprisingly high amount of music by Rage Against the Machine in a film about artificial intelligence.
1 minute into the episode and Clarkson grabs the hammer...
WOW.. I really wasn't expecting the start to go like that lol
Jeremy talking to the robot dog reminds me of James May and the Bim Robot.
In short, the Antikythera Mechanism was a machine designed to predict celestial phenomena according to the sophisticated astronomical theories current in its day, the sole witness to a lost history of brilliant engineering, a conception of pure genius, one of the great wonders of the ancient world-but it didn’t really work very well! It did do calculations which made it a computer. Similar to the Charles Baddage machine.
God fucking damnit this guy knows how to start a show
Love these hopefully we survive the virus fingers crossed. Stay safe folks
'some of the greatest documentaries.........in the world '
Почта указана в конце видео. Переводчик примет разумную критику с благодарностью.
I wonder how many potentially world-changing inventions were stopped in their tracks by ridicule from government or well-respected scientists. Considering we humans have an impressive track record of achieving scientific milestones that were once believed to be surely impossible, it's kind of sad that we still don't have much faith in our abilities to create magic with science and technology.
"disc brakes were a german invention." From Wiki: "Disc-style brakes development and use began in England in the 1890s."
no, the first armored vehicle ever made for military warfare was by the British, the tank was known as the "Mark V Landship"
A computer used to be a job. Could you imagine inventing the thing that took your own job?
I can see where his love of hammers came from..
I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but the first was build by the Roman's over 2000 years ago called Antikythera Mechanism found in a Roman shipwreck near Greece. Not the British!
Could not the Enigma machine itself be regarded as a type of computer ?
"He made a Hollix of it" i must say the british do have a good sense of humour!
John Atanasoff - the father of the computer!
watching this in 2022 remembering the hard times of slow computers XD
Me: Clarkson did a mini documentary about computers? Clarkson a minute and a half in: *smashing a laptop with a hammer*
this is great! Thanks.
Things that Jeremy hate: -computers -caravans -cold steak
Criminally underrated comment
we still can't have an intelligent conversation not even in 2018
I heard "take the power back" and "roll right" by rage against the machine. The editor seems to know his shit when it comes to music.
count69 and The White Stripes
MaxTheKanuck And 'Rez' by Underworld an absolute monster EP, and a masterclass in early 90s electronica. You should see them do it live in front of thousands of people, here on yt, it's mind-blowing!
Plus a smattering of Queens of the Stone Age
realises that I'm watching this on a pc much much more powerful than huge early supercomputers XD
I'm 95% sure it's the begining of "Revolver" off their 1st album- and if it's not Revolver I know it's off their 1st......
his documentaries are ace deffo check out the Victoria Cross & Brunel they are 2 fantastic ones
I remember watching this 1st time round and was like ..wow technology... now its like wtf is that hes using lol
When Garmin came out I loved to confuse them by taking routes they didn't know.
what i don't get is why the invention of the first digital computer is attributed to atanasov (according to wikipedia) when zuse finished building the z1 (which was also a digital computer) in 1938 (conceptualized in 1936) atanasov didn't finish his computer before 1939 (conceptualized in 1938) but wikipedia keeps contradicting itself in that respect anyway
Thanks for uploading.
British sure know how to treat their geniuses.
Voight Kampf from Blade Runner is just the Turing Test. He was treated badly - top bloke.
The video game industry is probably the biggest leader in AI.
I'm watching this in Jan 2023 and the doctor is talking about in 20 years we'd have war fighting machines that think for themselves while I watch the war in Ukraine where autonomous drones have become a thing.
1:09-1:48 in the wise words of Richard Mark Hammond the 1st Duke of Birmingham, Commander of the British Teeth Whiteners: "His first rant of the series!"
he's so funny
