If you're reading this, you're probably using a version of the transmission control protocol, or TCP, a system that regulates internet traffic to prevent congestion. It works, and it's getting better all the time. But it was a system made by puny humans--surely our machine-overlords can do better.
Yes, and possibly as much as two or three times better, say the MIT researchers behind Remy, a system that spits out congestion-stopping algorithms.
To use Remy, an Internet-goer plugs in answers to a few variables (How many people will use this connection? How much bandwidth will they need?) and what metric they want to use for measuring performance (Is throughput, the measure of how much data is going through, the most important? Or is it the delay, the measure of how long it takes that information to travel?).
The system then starts testing algorithms to determine which works best for your situation. Testing every possible algorithm would be impractical, so Remy prioritizes, searching for the smaller tweaks that will result in the largest jump in speed. (Even this "quicker" process takes four to 12 hours.)
The resulting rules that the system spits out are more complicated than in most TCPs, according to Remy's inventors: while TCP programs might operate based on a few rules, Remy works out algorithms with more than 150 if-x-then-y rules for operating. The simulations sound impressive: doubled throughput and two-thirds less delay on a computer connection, and a 20 to 30 percent increase in throughput for a cell network, with a 25 to 40 percent slower delay.
But that really only makes Remy impressive on paper. The researchers haven't yet tested Remy on the wide-open Internet, which presents a whole new set of variables the researchers have to account for. It might very well turn out, as the researchers told PC World, that Remy just provides people with a new way to look at the problem, instead of a solution in itself.
PRISM. lol. Mainstream technology sneaks up on the best the government has to offer...again. :)

They ought to contact me. I know a way to send a Blu ray video over a dial up in a less than a minute.
what Ryan explained I am shocked that a mom able to earn $6399 in four weeks on the internet. have you seen this web site...... www.Yad7.com
wow - now get your porn 3x faster.
see this is the beginning of how the Matrix started - the machines started winning us over with small things like faster porn. eventually we build them bigger and smarter, and then they eventually enslave us all, in a virtual 1999 with extremely slow dail-up speeds.
Working smarter is always better.
I LIKE IT and YEA for better COMMUNICATIONS!
That is not that big of a advancedment! In the future the internet will run through other dimesions. Not a big idea. They will create holes in time and space to send data to any location in the universe/world in the future.
The really big stuff that will leap mankinds evolusion is DNA supersymetry DNA editing computers which will be able to supersymetize DNA to make humans infinatly. Perfect! into what we can call super beings.Many times smarter than we are today. This will leap mankinds evolution by billions or trillions of years. This is just the beginning of the universe!
After hearing endless, but randomly timed, complaints from the spousal unit that her connection is slow or stalled, I wonder if this could help.
I'm waitng and waiting....
my roomate's sister-in-law makes $66 every hour on the computer. She has been out of a job for nine months but last month her check was $18724 just working on the computer for a few hours. try this
