On traditional server architectures, every application has to set up its own servers that run their own code in isolated silos, making sharing of data hard. If a single app is compromised or goes offline, many users and other apps are affected.

On a blockchain, anyone can set up a node that replicates the necessary data for all nodes to reach an agreement and be compensated by users and app developers. This allows user data to remain private and apps to be decentralized like the Internet was supposed to work.

The Keplerian Operating System is a purpose built set of extensions to the FreeBSD Operating System. The extensions include new device drivers to interface with modern, AI, and AR hardware as well as a new Keplerian SDK which presents a set of AI technologies in a coherent manner to the application programmer. Keplerian seeks to unify access to various types of AI hardware so that it is not dependent on a particular SoC or chipset.

For most of the history of computing the human in any human/machine system contained the wealth of the reasoning ability while the machine contained the raw processing power and data retention. As computing systems have grown in both processing speed and data storage capacity they have come to dwarf the capabilities on any, single, human in these two areas. The rise of machine learning and AI techniques now allow us to further augment human/machine systems by moving parts of the reasoning functions onto the machine side of the equation.

Data, and the systems that interact with data, have been organized for the convenience of the machine rather than the humans that interact with them, a necessary compromise when machines were more limited in their processing capabilities as the systems built to serve the quirks of the machines were faster and more efficient. Machines no longer need to force their users to think in strictly hierarchical, file and folder, or desktop metaphors.

The combination of Natural Language, and advanced search techniques aided by machine learning, allow us to build systems that interact with people more naturally, requiring less mental effort from the human user of the system to achieve their goal.

Why does the Operating System matter and how can it help us to achieve our goals? The Operating System provides not only the underlying software framework that makes a piece of silicon useful but also the mental framework in which systems are developed. Keplerian provides not only a stable software platform for building secure, intelligent, systems but also brings together a coherent set of programming interfaces for use by developers in building the next generation of intelligent machines.

The Keplerian is built on top of the FreeBSD Operating System, which provides a modern and stable platform for the development of AI and AR based systems. FreeBSD is used as the base operating system because it is mature, stable, secure and has a business friendly open source license.
