When it comes to genetic engineering, reality is starting to look more and more like what was once just science fiction. This well-documented article asks all the right questions and provides a lot of answers.
DARPA is launching a new military program using an implant to connect the human brain to a computer. Although there may be some applications that could restore sight or hearing to those without the military use of the Neural Engineering System Design (NESD) is the reason behind the Human Brain project and the US Brain Initiative.
The quest for immortality has been with the human race since its inception. The author weighs in on what is now being called the new era of cyborgs, where it is seem that brain transplants could revive the dead.
Will robots and artificial intelligence entities of the future have more rights than flesh and blood humans? Jake Anderson believes in the future, the evolution of artificial intelligence will be so dramatic and rapid that we will scarcely be able to identify the point at which strong artificial intelligence surpasses human cognition.
A new find by Nikola Tesla- a hand drawn Map of Multiplication using base 12 mathematics makes math simple. No memorization necessary. Read the article and try out the “map”. Advanced technology makes math simple. a Tells about patterns in mathematics that are the key to simplicity. Base 12 math was in practice in ancient times. Tesla was a genius.
Robots are being taught ‘disobedience’ by engineers to protect us from ourselves. They will make decisions based on safety of themselves and humans. See the attached video showing this. This could be our future.
Scientists have developed a working laboratory demonstrator of a lithium-oxygen battery which has very high energy density, is more than 90% efficient, and, to date, can be recharged more than 2000 times, showing how several of the problems holding back the development of these devices could be solved, and would enable an electric car with a battery that is a fifth the cost and a fifth the weight of those currently on the market to drive from London to Edinburgh on a single charge.
There is no question that our knowledge of brains has expanded massively in the past century. But what does all this data about brains really tell us about consciousness? Not a great deal.
In this video, Ralph Smart of Infinite Waters Diving Deep shares 10 amazing scientific ideas that he thinks will change the world.
For a whole lot of people, especially those in developing countries, science — and with it, medicine — isn’t readily available to the majority of citizens. But Manu Prakash wants to change that. Prakash, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford, is the proprietor of “frugal science,” a term he coined to explain the movement toward building cheap versions of high tech tools. His endeavour aims to make medical devices both affordable and available to the masses…So in 2014 he created a paper microscope, aptly named the Foldscope, that costs only 50 cents to produce.
Lihong Wang creates the sort of medical technology you’d expect to find on the starship Enterprise. Wang, a professor of biomedical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, has already helped develop instruments that can detect individual cancer cells in the bloodstream and oxygen consumption deep within the body. He has also created a camera that shoots at 100 billion frames a second, fast enough to freeze an object traveling at the speed of light.
Video Source: AsapSCIENCE With the recent release of the movie, Self/Less, where Ben Kingsley’s wealthy and powerful character transfers his consciousness into the body of a much younger Ryan Reynolds for more longevity, there is a natural curiosity about whether this sort of thing is even remotely plausible. The curious guys at Science Asap explore that […]
