A startup believes that the next step in the course of evolution is the merger of humans and artificial intelligence to make HI or human intelligence.
Google's DeepMind will publicly release its AI training platform in its bid to increasingly embrace open-source initiatives. This also appears to be a response to Elon Musk's initiative on making its OpenAI robot gym available to the public.
A scientist wants to build a prosthetic that can function as an artificial hippocampus. It will act as a human memory enhancement in the form of a prosthetic, and he's already seeing it attached to humans.
China has overtaken the U.S. and other European countries as the world's leading economy. Now, it has driven its motivation toward becoming the leader in science and technology. Experts from all over the world have observed and pointed out that there has been a continuous decline in the amount and levels of research for science and technology in Japan, and this may be the reason why China is now in the lead of the race.
In a world becoming more rapidly aware of the need for clean energy, a researcher from Florida State University has produced a new design that could store hydrogen fuel more efficiently in vehicles as well as other devices that use clean energy.
It appears despite the benign nature of Google DeepMind and its AI projects, it still has secrets it wants to keep. DeepMind cofounder Mustafa Suleyman has been mum about the members of the group's mysterious AI ethics board. This is despite saying he wants to disclose it to the public.
For worried parents, self-destructing toys will not breakdown within your child's lifetime. A new line of toys made from vanishing plastic were reported to breakdown once thrown away. With triggers such as excessive heat, sunlight, or even sewage bacteria, the toy will naturally break down when thrown away. The plastic toy will simply vanish -- no explosions and no injuries.
NASA released the Spinoff 2017 publication to highlight various technologies that were developed after NASA's mission and research.
NASA is going to push through its second space-based investigation in Earth Venture-Mission series.
A team of engineers from UC Berkeley has built a tiny robot with the highest recorded robotic vertical jumping agility. The new technology could aid in rescue and search operations during disasters in urban areas.
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.
This latest technology may be the best one yet, as waterless toilets are aimed to save the environment. They have been designed to use no water at all for flushing to reduce the need to have a big septic tank underneath the house. They would also allow homeowners to have their own tiny wastewater treatment system.
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.
Hidden tunnels were found between North Korea and South Korea's borders that will allow thousands of troops to travel in between the DMZ in less than an hour, a discovery which may be frightening for many. A lot of South Koreans are worried there might be more of these tunnels found along the DMZ.
Researchers from Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft have developed the solution to air conditioning systems that do not address problematic drafts or the spread of mold and bacteria due to condensation. By creating ceiling panels covered in special heat-conducting film that operates well below the dew point, researchers have created a multifunction system that allows for hygienic temperature management even in countries with a tropical climate.
