ROBACUS GOES TO SCHOOL
ROBACUS' mission in life is knowledge farming.  
ROBACUS could be likened to the seed of knowledge.  
It needs the fertile soil of the academics to grow into 
the trees of knowledge.  The students will be the 
farmers.
Following is the schedule for the cultivation of the five 
different kinds of plantations that would work jointly to 
reach ROBACUS mission's goal -- the automation of the 
productions and distribution of basic necessities in the 
world:
1.	 Elementary School - Familiarization stage
 Here the students should learn the operations of 
ROBACUS as if they are reading a book, as 
everything will be in plain English.  For Chinese 
kids this is where they will be initiated into English.  
And this would be the type English most useful for 
them, for it will be used to help them think.
Although the ROBACUS is just about the most 
modern technology, we still use the ancient 
Chinese feudal way to learn it. That is to achieve 
man-machine integration by diehard memorization 
and understanding through revelation. This is 
actually the most direct and simple way that 
mother nature has bestowed on us. Just like in 
learning Chinese, in the end it will lead to most 
lively applications.
2.	 Junior High School - Application stage
 Here ROBACUS will come alive.  It will show its 
magical feats by automatically producing the 
answers to the students' problems, once the 
students furnish all the inputs ROBACUS askes for 
in their conversations.  But in many cases, bugs 
will occur...that require looking under the hood of 
ROBACUS.  This skill will be taught in high school.
3.	 High School - Maintenance stage
 So, this is where the bugs will be sent to be 
debugged.  The students will be taught the 
fail-safe diagnostic and robotic editing environment 
in ROBACUS, as well as the rudiment computer 
languages in FORTRAN, UNIX, and C, whereas 
ROBACUS only uses 10%, 1% and 0.1% of the 
respective languages.  However, ROBACUS does 
have its own "computer language".  It's basically a 
naming convention for files and variables, which 
make its user interface, all-English and 
filenameless.
4.	 College - Expansion stage
 Here is where the knowledge tree will start to grow.  
That inevitably would run into non-existing new 
features that will require development of the 
computer intelligence of ROBACUS.  Such 
development will be the duties of the post-college 
ROBACUS developers.
5.	 Postgraduate - Development stage
Here I wouldl have to personally lead a selected 
group of students in the further development of 
ROBACUS.

After I sent ROBACUS to school from my lab, my own 
tasks at home are:
1.	Write the course materials
2.	Coordinate the academic programs
3.	Optimize ROBACUS' design
4.	Troubleshoot whatever undebuggable
5.	Passing down the core technologies to the future 
developers
The high school and college graduates, after one year 
of this program, would be able to help various 
industries automate their in-house computing.  In 
ten years, most companies will be running in 
auto-mode.  And within 20 years, China will be a 
land of automation.

             送电算盘去学校
电算盘的人生使命是知识耕种。 电算盘可以比作
知识的种子。它需要学者的肥沃土壤才能长成知识
之树。学生将成为农民。
以下是五种树林的种植时间表,这五种树林将共同
一起帮电算盘实现它的最终目标 - 自动生产和
分发世界上所有的基本必需品:
1.小学 - 熟悉阶段
 在这里,学生应该像阅读一本书一样去学习电算
盘的操作,因为所有内容都是用英语表达的。对于
中国孩子,这是他们开始和英语接触的地方。这种
英语也是对他们最有用的类型,因为日后它将用被
于去帮助他们思考。
虽然电算盘几乎可算是最现代化的科技,但我们用
了中国古老封建的方式去学习。 那就是靠死背和
悟解来达到人机合一。这其实是大自然给我们的,
最直接和简单的途径。就像学习中文一样,最终学
到的是最能活用的东西。
2.初中 - 应用阶段
 电算盘将在这里活跃起来。学生可在于电算盘对
话中提供它所问到的答案,然后它将自动地算出问
题的结果,从而显示其神奇的智慧。但是在许多情
况下,会发生错误......需要在电算盘的内部进行检
查。这项技能将在高中内学习来帮助初中的同学
们。
3.高中 - 维修阶段
 因此,这里是解决错误的地方。学生将学习电算
盘内的:故障诊断器和自动化编辑环境,以及
FORTRAN,UNIX和C的基本计算机语言,而电
算盘仅使用相应语言的10%,1%和0.1%。但是,
电算盘确有自己的"计算机语言"。它基本上是文
件和变量的命名约定,这使其用户界面成为全英文
化和不需有文件名。
4.大学 -  扩展阶段
 这是知识树林开始增长的地方。那不可避免地会
需要还不存在的新功能。 这些新功能将需要人去
提升电算盘的电脑智能。 这种发展将是大学毕业
后研究生的职责。
5.研究生 - 发展阶段
在这里,我将亲自带领一队学生去,进一步发展电
算盘。

当我将电算盘从实验室送进学校后,我自己在家的
任务是:
1.编写课程资料
2.协调学术课程
3.优化电算盘的设计
4.解决所有最终无法克服的问题
5.将核心技术传递给未来的开发人员
 
经过一年的培训,高中和大学毕业生将能够帮助各
个行业实现内部计算自动化。十年之内,大多数公
司将以自动化模式运行。并且在20年内,中国将
成为自动化之国。
