That's deeper than I'd gone. ...so I looked into it.
Quote:
Integer is a 16-bit fixed point number.The bits number 0 to 14
represent integer value and the bit number 15 is sign, negative value
in the case of 1 in 15th bit.The value range is from 32767 to -32768.

despite a int value , a DINT value has a identifier(e.g L#11), it is a 32-bit
fixed- point number.The value range is from +2147483647 to -2147483648.

Real numbers are 32-bit variable (e.g. positive side from 1.175494*10-38 to3.402823*1038 ).
The length of a Real number is as same as a DINT number, But bit pattern
of a real number is totally different from a DINT. In a real number bits 0 to 22 are considered
as mantissa and bits 23 to 30 are considered as exponent. The last bit is the sign.
Integers have no value in a system with a capacity of more than 32,767 votes. DINT and Real are both 32-bit.

I'd read Eric S. Raymond and Richard Stallman back in the day, so my criticism would center on the proprietary code. (reportedly, some company in Spain just had their servers confiscated by the U.S. Army (SCYTL?)) Nothing to do with birds, though. Move along.

The goal should be a Free and Open Source therefore auditable process.

What has my attention lately is a possible connection between GTP-3 and the Oracle at Delphi.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythia#Oracular_procedure

Quote:
The Pythia would then bathe naked in the Castalian Spring, then drink the holier waters of the Cassotis, which flowed closer to the temple, where a naiad possessing magical powers was said to live.
[moments later]
Inscribed on a column in the pronaos (forecourt) of the temple were an enigmatic "E" and three maxims:
  1. Know thyself
  2. Nothing to excess
  3. Surety brings ruin, or "make a pledge and mischief is nigh" (ἐγγύα πάρα δ'ἄτα)[44]
I interpret that last one as 'Be careful what you ask for". Now GTP-3

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPT-3

Quote:
Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3) is an autoregressive language model that uses deep learning to produce human-like text. It is the third-generation language prediction model in the GPT-n series created by OpenAI, a San Francisco-based artificial intelligence research laboratory.[2] GPT-3's full version has a capacity of 175 billion machine learning parameters. GPT-3, which was introduced in May 2020, and is in beta testing as of July 2020,[3] is part of a trend in natural language processing (NLP) systems of pre-trained language representations.[1] Prior to the release of GPT-3, the largest language model was Microsoft's Turing NLG, introduced in February 2020, with a capacity of 17 billion parameters or less than 10 percent compared to GPT-3.[4]

The quality of the text generated by GPT-3 is so high that it is difficult to distinguish from that written by a human, which has both benefits and risks.[4] Thirty-one OpenAI researchers and engineers presented the original May 28, 2020 paper introducing GPT-3. In their paper, they warned of GPT-3's potential dangers and called for research to mitigate risk.[1]:34 David Chalmers, an Australian philosopher, described GPT-3 as "one of the most interesting and important AI systems ever produced."[5]

Microsoft announced on September 22, 2020 that it had licensed "exclusive" use of GPT-3; others can still use the public API to receive output, but only Microsoft has control of the source code.[6]
Bolded: that didn't take long.

Recall that Bucly Fuller predicted that humans frustrated by their inability to get along will eventually defer to 'the computer'.

The connection is that from what I've read GTP-3 taught itself to translate, write code and press releases and generally act the idiot savant who can score 94-96% on a Turing test. Don't know if anyone has asked it the questions on the Political/Moral Compass test.

It's corpus encompasses "Wikipedia and the entire Internet". A carefully crafted and neutrally weighted series of questions could elucidate who is best bird.

'Integer' isn't limited to a specific size as a principle. It could be any size. Google 'long long integer' for instance.
In modern languages 8 byte integers are the norm, as processors now typically have 64 bit arithmetic processing capability and predictive pre-caching of data so there's no gain in using smaller integer sizes. This allows for calculus on 19 digit discrete numbers.

Suffice to say that integer size should not impact vote count reliability.

It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.

We have a winner!

The New Zealand Bird of the Year 2020 is the mighty Kakapo, the largest parrot in the world and non-flying at that.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-year-for-2020

It is a re-election, as the Kakapo also won in 2008.
Which it celebrated with a victory dance. Let's call it a victory dance.

That's something the winning US presidential candidate probably won't do.
Or maybe not the whole head but just the mind. Ah well.

But are they limited to two terms?
