Fully Distributed Representation (PDF), by Pentti Kanerva. “It is
shown how the information of a conventional record with fields is
encoded into a long random bit string, or a holistic record, that has
no fields, and how the fields are extracted from the holistic
record. It is argued that holistic representation should be used in
modeling high-level mental functions.”

It’s the same story the crow told me
It’s the only one he know —
like the morning sun you come
and like the wind you go
Ain’t no time to hate,
barely time to wait
Wo-oah, what I want to know,
where does the time go?

Pure is a modern-style functional programming language based on term
rewriting. It offers equational definitions with pattern matching,
full symbolic rewriting capabilities, dynamic typing, eager and lazy
evaluation, lexical closures, built-in list and matrix support and an
easy-to-use C interface. The interpreter uses LLVM as a backend to
JIT-compile Pure programs to fast native code.
Redis is a key-value database. It is similar to memcached but the
dataset is not volatile, and keys can be strings, exactly like in
memcached, but also lists and sets with atomic operations to push/pop
elements. Replication and other interesting features are a work in progress.
