the complete story)
|"Back in the late 80's to early 90's I worked wtih Tandem NON-Stop computers which were guaranteed not to fail every component was duplicated and if one died the system called the service company"

|"AIRBUS jets have such reduntant computer systems that shut down a computer unit that gives different data than other units(all with same input data). So the minority opinion(data) gets cut. Such "voting" is very rare, because the units are very reliable by themselves. Such event would mandate an unscheduled landing.
Light bulbs might be the easiest components for predicting/calculating their time of failure.
First, street light departments computers could track individual lightbulbs, calculate tear and inform changers 24 hours before failure."
