The contributions of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are primarily entrepreneural while mine is intellectual.
The connection is that Gates, Jobs and myself made contributions to the computing field. However, there are some differences between Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and myself.
First, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs made contributions to the development of personal computers (PCs) while I made mine to the field of supercomputing. Petroleum engineers, mathematicians and others also see it as a contribution to their fields.
PCs are more widely used than supercomputers which cost up to $55 million. However, since PCs are 10,000 times slower than supercomputers, the technology of supercomputers will be used to increase the speed of PCs and my contributions will eventually help the development of PCs.
Second, the contributions of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are primarily entrepreneural while mine is intellectual. My discoveries require far more theory and abstraction and the use of mathematical and scientific principles and methodologies.
