Unlike wind and solar energy, tidal power is entirely predictable. If it can be tapped on a large scale as a power source, it will provide reliable base load power for any grid system.
It’s possible that augmented reality technology is going to provide soul sucking, vapid escapism on a scale that we have never seen before. It’s going to blur the lines between reality and the digital world in truly disturbing ways.
According to OpenAI’s website, freedom from financial obligations allows for a “better focus on a positive human impact…AI should be an extension of individual human wills and, in the spirit of liberty, as broadly and evenly distributed as is possible safely.”
The translation system, dubbed the Pilot, comprises two earpieces to be worn by two people who do not speak the same language and uses an app so the duo can converse with ease.
What’s even more incredible is that Max built his free energy device out of materials he purchased for less than $15. That’s right, for the price of an average lunch, it appears that anyone can have access to free energy.
They have also developed certain filtration methods that ensure groundwater containing arsenic and uranium are safe to drink.
Time travel has recently been proven possible by sending single particles of light through a closed timelike curve where the photon meets its older self.
NASA has released a number of stunning colour photographs of the planet Pluto. The pictures have been compiled from four images from the New Horizons’ Long Range Reconnaissance Imager mixed with color data from the Ralph instrument. The new pictures indicate that Pluto is covered by masses of flowing ice.
According to a recent report, a nuclear power plant in Germany has been the target of a virus that has infected its computer systems.
Timelapse video showing a sequence of images just released by NASA that shows how human understanding of Pluto has evolved since the 1930s. The distant world was discovered in 1930 by astronmer Clyde William Tombaugh.
Will your eyes soon become a camera? If Samsung has their way, your eyes may be more than a camera, as their new contact proto-type connects with other devices too.
The Walkonomics app helps you find the best route for getting from point A to B based on walkability. It now has a new version that lets you find the path that puts you closest to nature, or more specifically, has the most trees, so that you can add a little nature immersion to your day-to-day travels.
German architect Andre Broessels has developed a spherical glass solar power collector that tracks the sun and can collect much more power than the flat screen solar collectors. Still in its development he has patents pending in 5 jurisdictions and hopes to market it in the near future. The indiegogo campaign has been successful and he is now testing.
Researchers predict that up to 35% of all jobs in the UK and 47% of all jobs in the US are at the risk of being displaced by technology over the next 20 years.
All new technology is frightening, says physicist Lawrence Krauss. But there are many more reasons to welcome machine consciousness than to fear it. Right now, says Krauss, robots can’t even fold laundry. But when they do learn to think (which he considers very likely), then there’s also reason to believe that they’ll develop consciences.
