Nibiru – GAIuS 1.0 ReleaseFebruary 19, 2012
GAIuS open-source Beta version has been available for over a year now. The tremendous positive feedback from it and many feature and function requests have been undertaken and developed into the upcoming GAIuS 1.0 codenamed “Nibiru” release. (Read more about this breakthrough release here.)
Why is this version codenamed Nibiru? Popular pseudo-scientific fringe-culture has declared that the world is coming to an end on December 21, 2012 when the mythological planet “Nibiru” will catastrophically collide with the Earth. As the neo-folklore goes, this apocalypse is due to coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar. Never one to give up on an “end of the world” yarn, this sensational premise has been adopted by Hollywood into the screenplay, “2012″, further embedding the myth into the zeitgeist.
Interestingly enough, the term “nibiru” translated from Akkadian means “crossing” or “point of transition”. At Intelligent Artifacts, we believe this new version of GAIuS is a crossing or point of transition. We also are very (overly!) aware of critics of our technology believing that it will end with a robot apocalypse. So, the name “Nibiru” fits perfectly with our ideas about changing the world…and satisfies our twisted sense of humor!
When is the GAIuS Nibiru release due? Well, December 21, 2012 of course!
In the meantime, scientists, researchers and developers can request an early pre-release version of Nibiru by asking for an invitation at our GAIuS Google Group.This entry was posted in News. Bookmark the permalink. ← Diagnosing Heart Disease with GAIuS Nibiru Unleashed! →
