As companies aim to increase production, the demand for large-scale industrial robots is accelerating around the world. Yet while these robots are revolutionizing companies, their interactivity with co-workers could introduce the possibility of injury. One company is planning to change that.
Can humanity build an Alcubierre warp drive? Can we go faster than light? Dr. Miguel Alcubierre was inspired by Star Trek the Next Generation's example of warp drive faster than light technology on the starship Enterprise. In 1994 he wrote a paper on how we could bend and warp space and time to travel faster than light within the rules of Einstein's general relativity.
At performances of Circus Roncalli in Germany, an elephant stands before the audience, its ears flapping and trunk wagging. It hoists up its hind legs as the crowd applauds. Then it disappears. The elephant, like the other animals featured in Circus Roncalli, is a 3-D hologram-a tech-savvy effort to preserve the flavor of historic circuses while eliminating concerns of animal cruelty.
What if you could use diamonds instead of GPS to navigate? It is a proposition that has all the elements of a James Bond thriller: quantum mechanics, high-tech gemstones and, yes, spies. Lockheed Martin, the US defence contractor and Europe's Element Six, the synthetic diamond-producing arm of diamond company De Beers, are working on a navigation technology that would be perfect for covert operations because it is untrackable.
In the latest example of deepfake technology, researchers have shown off new software that uses machine learning to let users edit the text transcript of a video to add, delete, or change the words coming right out of somebody's mouth.
THE ISSUE: A school district has installed a security system that uses facial recognition technology.

Artificial intelligence is putting new teeth on the old saw that cheaters never prosper. New companies and new research are applying the cutting edge technology in at least three different ways to combat cheating - on homework, on the job hunt and even on one's diet.
Although the government views next-generation hydrogen energy as the most viable means of ushering in a decarbonized society, promoting the full-scale spread of that energy will be an arduous task. The public and private sectors should make even greater efforts to achieve this.

It can help trace missing children, but misidentifies people of color. It can help detect cancer, but may recommend the wrong cure. It can help track criminals, but could aid foreign enemies in targeting voters. It can improve efficiency, but perpetuate long-standing biases.
Although the vast gap between human intelligence and current AI capabilities push the expected materialization of artificial general intelligence far into the future, the unpredictably rapid growth of AI gives the impression that we won't have to wait too long to see generally intelligent machines.
