Hellenic Quest my arse...


Άλλη μια διαδικτυακή μούφα που ισχυρίζεται ότι η Ελληνική γλώσσα προωθείται από το CNN (ντόινγκ!) επειδή τάχα έχει μαθηματική δομή που επιτρέπει την αρμονική γεωμετρική τους απεικόνιση, ως παγκόσμια γλώσσα.
Απολαύστε το παρακάτω κείμενο και γελάστε!
Ζήτω η ομάδα Ε!!!




Hellenic Quest refers to an urban legend that circulated around Greek websites and was widely reproduced without prior verification by any source. According to the "Hellenic Quest" story, CNN has reported that Apple Computer is supposedly developing a software product for teaching the Ancient Greek language to foreigners and scientists, in the light of the upcoming development of supercomputers that will use Ancient Greek as their programming interface, due to this language's superior logical structure. (This prediction often attributed by the hoax writer to Bill Gates.) A prototype computer that is allegedly under development as part of this project is called "Ibycus".

The text contains a number of factual errors, unproved assertions and exaggerations. The origin of this hoax is not clear. The author probably uses CNN and Apple Computer as a means to give more credibility to the story. The story is sometimes enhanced with linguistic-sounding arguments. It also has several obscure references to what seems to be the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae project, a project undertaken by University of California, Irvine, which aims to digitize all ancient and medieval greek texts. Some of the story's context seems to be based on a misquotation of the Introduction to the TLG Project. Furthermore, the supposed computer prototype "Ibycus", is just an old HP 1000, that was used in the 80's to search and browse TLG texts, represented in beta code.

The Ancient Greek language (or any other language) has nothing to do with the binary logic that forms the basis of computers' function. Even advanced concepts in computation, such as fuzzy logic, knowledge-based systems and quantum computation have absolutely no use whatsoever for the extreme expressiveness of any of the world's richest and more powerful languages anyway; the notions understood by computers are very basic.
