Elon Musk's goals to build a safer AI for the world is yet another step closer to fruition. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsung Huang has just delivered the first DGX-1 supercomputer to the non-profit organization OpenAI.
It can be known as a universal desire for all kinds of civilizations to want to live better and longer lives. However, it may be interesting to take note that despite this premise, scientists still debate on the question of where should we draw the line between ethics and pushing biological limits through experimental science.
Physicists are starting to look toward stellarators as the new model of future fusion reactors by observing the potential of utilizing magnetic fields.
An e-mobility company has made a "motorcycle of the future," one that not only is a marvel of sophistication in design and ergonomics but can also power an entire home.
London is upping its ante on the climate change battle after a historic reveal from Mayor Sadiq Khan. The London mayor announced that "dirty" diesel double-decker buses will be phased out from the city's bus fleet by 2018.
Memory researchers have finally discovered the answer to one of cognitions' most fundamental question: where does memory travel?
People normally flock to ocean parks and bodies of water to see the spectacle that are whales touring the waters and splashing all around. Their fins slap on the water with a beauty that is truly unique to their kind. But scientists discover they're not just doing it to show off -- they're actually talking.
It appears brain imaging exams performed on high school football players revealed changes in both the gray and white matters in their brains. This is correlated with exposure to head impacts, which may have a huge effect on their health, according to a study presented at the annual Radiological Society of North America meeting.
Planets outside the solar system and alien life have been very tricky subjects in the realm of astronomy for quite some time. Interestingly, new studies suggest that alien life can actually be found in stars, not on planets.
A recent study suggests that we are able to "coax" living cells into carbon-silicon bonds. This is the first time that we have seen that we can actually incorporate silicon, one of the most abundant elements on Earth, into the building blocks of living organisms.
It seems smart really is the new sexy -- partly. It appears stimulating the brain can drastically affect sex drives. A new study suggests that a right nudge to the brain can be turned up or down with a new brain stimulation sex drive device.
A belief system is a relevant part of everyone's lives. However, deeper examination reveals spiritual experiences activate the brain's reward circuits. This is similar to how we view sex, gambling, music, and drugs.
The future of gene editing is slowly approaching great promise. Recent developments surrounding CRISPR/Cas9 showed its efficiency and promise in correcting disease-causing mutations. For the first time, it was used to develop a dual gene therapy to treat hemophilia B in mice, which normally leads to a defective clotting protein.
Scientists point toward a neutron star 400 light-years away that may literally shake the foundation of quantum physics. When polarized, light from that specific neutron star has proven that its ultraintense magnetic field is capable of distorting empty space through a quantum mechanical effect that involves "virtual" particles in the said vacuum. This was behavior only previously seen on the atomic level.
