How the fuck was this kid grated a patent for something that already exists?
>split to multiple substrings, each representing a color
>transmit said colors with an antenna
So wait, he is literally turning data to frequency and transmitting it with an antenna?
I thought it was $500 for a patent. Besides the PTO just issues patents now with no fucks given and lets the courts handle any arguments about the actual legitimacy of the patent.
>for each of the 16,777,217 color codes in the 24 bit RGB color model, the predetermined frequencies are in 5 Hz increments anywhere in the Wi-Fi range (2.4 GHz to 5 GHz). The increments may be varied. For instance, 1 Hz increments could be used, and frequencies assigned may be 2.40000000 GHz to 2.416777217 GHz.
>thinking 24bit RGB "color codes" have any correlation to their viability for use with WDM
>calling microwave frequencies "wi-fi frequencies"
i really, really want to see the look on his face when he realizes what an ass he's making of himself
It's a lilliput acting as a child
Is this kid serious?
>Born in 1999, Nicolas Dupont is currently a high school student attending a prominent Preparatory School in Central Florida. This young prodigy, founder of Cyborg Industries, has unveiled his four groundbreaking innovations during his unique session at Techweek LA. These innovative inventions will launch the start of a new era in computing, and offer instantaneous data transfer, limitless data compression, and truly unbreakable encryption. Nicolas hosted his press conference at 2 PM, on November 21st, where he unveiled his revolutionary technologies for the first time ever. Solely developed by Nicolas, these innovations and inventions will provide multiple markets with a truly limitless technology.
I asked /sci/ to help us determine whether Nicolas Dupont is smarter than Jacob Barnett.
>7GB movie to a mere kilobyte
Life hack, how to compress 7.2 kB of random data under 1 kB:
- Write down every byte in binary representation.
- Render each representation into a still 1080p frame
- render a 2 hour long video from each frames showing for 1 second each
- compress the resulting video with shadow compression
Decoding should work losslessly with any OCR software.
Didn't read the article, but it is literally my job to work on these systems for Telstra. The equipment I work with has been around for years, and the technology has been around for even longer.

>Founded in 2013 by Nicolas Dupont, Cyborg Industries is a rapidly growing software and hardware development company created exclusively for the purpose of marketing Nicolas’s technology.
>created exclusively for the purpose of marketing
It's like he/his parents know all the business-speak words, but don't really know why they work in advertising copy, so they've just thrown random shit together and ended up admitting "this is a company for bullshitting".
This invention has a non-obvious inventive step, and is thus patentable.
"One aspect of this disclosure is a method and system for improving the ability of antennae located on the various receivers (such as but not limited to those shown in FIG. 1) to handle more data than previously possible. This is done through the unique method for transmitting data described further below."
>more data than previously possible
>unique method for transmitting data
Also, in re compression:
"This data compression component is an improvement in the efficiency of compression because it considerably simplifies the process of compression. One of the simplifications is that this system compresses pure binary code, regardless of what the code stands for. Previous systems compress data based on the content of the data--in other words what the raw binary code stands for (example, removing redundant pixels in an image file). This is the distinction between the physical versus application layer compression. There are no known compression schemes which work on the physical layer. Because this is a physical layer compression scheme, the system is a cleaner and much more efficient process for compressing data."
>compresses pure binary code, regardless of what the code stands for.
translation: this is a lossless compression algorithm
>This is the distinction between the physical versus application layer compression.
no dupont, it's the distinction between lossless and lossy compression
>There are no known compression schemes which work on the physical layer.
this suggests there are no lossy compression algorithms, based on previously defined meaning of "physical layer compression"
>Because this is a physical layer compression scheme, the system is a cleaner and much more efficient process for compressing data.
translation: lossless compression is lossless
my god can any of you imagine what kind of a shitstorm would come out of this if dupont was instead some kind of black female genderwhatever jew warrior?
the unwarranted support, the wasted donations, all of it
I feel like reading this has irrevocably dismantled some of my understanding of everything
Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go.
Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.
>physical layer compression
There is only one true doubles advocate
>Category: Encryption Algorithm
>Introducing Spectre Vault, the first unbreakable encryption algorithm. By utilizing physical identifiers on its proprietary chips, Spectre Vault is able to transfer sensitive data without any chance of interception, thereby effectively stops online identity theft and drastically reduces malicious use of the internet.
What does he mean by physical identifiers? The way he describes it vaguely sounds like hardware based public-key cryptography, which wouldn't exactly be an innovation.
Also, this wouldn't stop interception. The whole point of encryption is to make interception irrelevant, not to stop it.
If I didn't know better, I'd say he sounds like a troll.
Kid who dreams in code successfully became /g/ bait
>7GB movie to a mere kilobyte
This is bullshit. Pure unadulterated bullshit. Nanozip can't get that level of compression on a text file. Entropy does not bow before snot-nosed brats.
>welcome to the US patent system
Think I can get away with patenting quantum computers?
I always assumed the project was a bunch of bullshit that the kid made for some school project. Like, he was assigned to make some stupid website about himself or a fictional company or whatever.
The patent application changes things.
That's 120 bytes bro, gotta sharpen it down, we can crack this
"Captain America ruins plans"
27 bytes, we did it team, congratulations, Websters defines making history as etc. etc.
this data then is used as a lookup address on The Cloud to retreive the movie
such Cloud data is metadata as it's not part of the file on the users' computer
since it's metadata, it's not counted towards the size of the file on the users' computer.
>How the fuck was this kid grated a patent for something that already exists?
Welcome to the United States patent system. Designed with the sole purpose of creating a massive amount of job security for lawyers.
I think the thing about lossless compression was more of a joke that could be picked up by more tech literate people, which makes it a better show than Big Bang Theory, automatically.

Oh this kid knows EXATLY what he's doing. Wish I had these ideas a decade ago.
it will be fun when he step on the toes of some jewish giant crop that's actually doing the same thing
Holy shit, 10^54000 bits per second?? 16 million "colors"? Does he mean frequencies? Is this an optical cable? Wonder how he did it. This is a spectacular leap, billions of billions of times faster than anything we can't even fathom today. Can't fucking wait for this kid genius to run the world.
