By 2040 you will be able to upload your brain?

by Mike Hodgkinson, THE INDEPENDENT…or at least that’s what Ray Kurzweil thinks. He has spent his life inventing machines that help people, from the blind to dyslexics. Now, he believes we’re on the brink of a new age - the ’singularity’ - when mind-boggling technology will allow us to email each other toast, run as [...]

KinoSearch1::Analysis::Token - unit of text SYNOPSIS
# private class - no public API PRIVATE CLASS
You can't actually instantiate a Token object at the Perl level -- however, you can affect individual Tokens within a TokenBatch by way of TokenBatch's (experimental) API. DESCRIPTION
Token is the fundamental unit used by KinoSearch1's Analyzer subclasses. Each Token has 4 attributes: text, start_offset, end_offset, and pos_inc (for position increment). The text of a token is a string. A Token's start_offset and end_offset locate it within a larger text, even if the Token's text attribute gets modified -- by stemming, for instance. The Token for "beating" in the text "beating a dead horse" begins life with a start_offset of 0 and an end_offset of 7; after stemming, the text is "beat", but the end_offset is still 7. The position increment, which defaults to 1, is a an advanced tool for manipulating phrase matching. Ordinarily, Tokens are assigned consecutive position numbers: 0, 1, and 2 for "three blind mice". However, if you set the position increment for "blind" to, say, 1000, then the three tokens will end up assigned to positions 0, 1, and 1001 -- and will no longer produce a phrase match for the query '"three blind mice"'.
