I have a dream of carpeting the sahara desert with cheap, 90% efficient solar-electric panels with a design life of 200 years, and coupled to hydrolysis plants to produce hydrogen which can be exported to meet the whole world's energy needs. I have no idea how to achieve it in practice, but because I have the dream, it seems I can write the patent. Surely that's daft. Clearly solar panels all over the sahara coupled with a means of getting the energy to where its needed would be extremely desirable - nay essential seeing as oil is a limited resource which we are using faster than the bowels of the earth can generate it from the remains of dead organisms. But there are thousands of technical hurdles to overcome. I should apply for a patent when I overcome one of those hurdles in practice, not just when I have a flight of fantasy.
Would you believe it? The system eliminated the totally acceptable English word D A M N and made it look as though the original had been considerably coarser. I support the elimination of so-called “strong” language, because it is just the opposite – the refuge of people who are too idle or ignorant to select appropriate descriptive words from their vocabularies. But this is what happens when people programme naïve rules into machines.
