Computer Scientist Leads the Way to the Next Revolution in Artificial Intelligence

According to the abstract of the original paper, it appears that she is attempting to make a computer that uses “real numbers” instead of the traditional integers and rational numbers available to today’s computers. However, according to what we know of physics, there are no truly real numbers [1]. So I can only surmise that she is attempting to build a computer that would be more powerful than a turing machine, but is not actually a true super-turing machine (similar to how today’s computers are not true turing machines due to their lack of infinite memory). I’m not sure why this hadn’t been tried until now. And I wonder if it could be achieved simply by using different voltages to represent the “real numbers” in place of the on/off (one/zero) voltages of today’s computers.

I want to read the actual paper but I don’t want to pay $12.00 to have only 24 hours of access…
