  论文《从人脑的结构机理看互联网的进化>英文版本,

 2008年7月份向美国著名的计算机期刊ACM投稿,

 该论文被ACM评审否定。 

这篇论文的中文修改版本随后向中文期刊“人类工效学”投稿,

最终发表在2009年第一期杂志中。

还是有必要公布一下ACM的评审意见,

感受一下西方科学界对互联网进化领域的看法,

以及中国研究者撰写英文论文的痛苦和困难。

当然对当时的思考深度而言,这个评审是专业的

但这个过程表明,互联网与神经学交叉对比研究

在西方科学界是还没有被关注和认可

 

来信的peng是本文第二作者,

中国科学院研究生院的彭庚(副)教授,

他给予了我很多指导和帮助。

Dear Dr. peng:

I write you in regards to manuscript # CACM-08-11-0228 entitled "The Discovery and Analysis on the Law of Internet Evolution" which you submitted to the Communications of the ACM.

In view of the feedback from the reviewer(s) found at the bottom of this letter, your manuscript has been declined for publication in Communications of the ACM.

Thank you for considering the Communications of the ACM for the publication of your research. I hope the outcome of this specific submission will not discourage you from the submission of future manuscripts.

Sincerely,
Moshe Y. Vardi
Editor in Chief, Communications of the ACM

Comments to the Author:
The basic premise of this paper -- that the internet is evolving like the human brain evolved -- is based on some inevitable similarities between any network designed to connect human beings together and to devices humans use.

I see your theory as a mere metaphor without scientific substantiation. Furthermore, your claim that the evolution of the internet will follow that of the brain is far-fetched speculation. Among the fundamental differences are (a) the brain evolved over millions of years and (b) the brain evolved under natural selection in which many millions of individual designs were tried and abandoned. The internet is a single entity and is designed by humans. I just don't see any reason to extend this metaphor into a scientific theory.

By the way, the English is quite poor and it makes it difficult for the reader to understand many of your sentences. For example, in this key passage

"This is the law of internet evolution. Internet evolution results in: (1) sufficient connection of human brains into a network. (2) Forming an internet virtual brain highly similar to human brains."

statement (1) makes no sense. I do not know what you mean by it. I would urge you to sit down with an English-speaker and work through the paper line by line. I also believe that you should discuss your theories (and the next version of the paper) with evolutionary biologists and perhaps submit it to a journal or conference exploring evolutionary programming so that appropriate expertise is available for review.
     关于这个评审意见,科学网网友zengfeng 说到:“人脑结构是无数的个体在自然选择的情况下形成的,而互联网的结构只有一个,”此评论未见到人脑的共性。

          这是很好的回复评价,但我当时并没有考虑到,放弃了申辩。   不可否认,2008年之后的两年里,我们关于互联网进化的问题又向前迈进了很多步,但都是建立在2005年到2008年的三年基础上,无论那时思考还是多么不完善和简单。
