Nearly half of all children surveyed for a new poll believe humans will establish a colony on Mars within their lifetime.
Alzheimer's disease is a progressive memory disorder that affects nearly one in three seniors and is on the rise, currently affecting 43 million people worldwide. Behind the memory impairments, there is a perfect storm of destruction in the brain, stemming in part from accumulations of a protein called tau.
Korean biotechnology companies T&R Biofab and SCM Life Science are to collaborate on the R&D of new 3D printed tissue regenerative products. The two companies will focus on marketable cell patch products and new formulations for cell therapy. "We are pleased to cooperate with T&R Biofab, a leader in 3D bioprinting technology, to develop new [...]
Facebook has announced that it's opening a third office in London that will house 500 new technology jobs - 20% of which will focus on artificial intelligence (AI).
As we head into the age of Industry 4.0, there is a general consensus that industrial revolutions are associated with new waves of technology. Innovations in technology have often triggered a surge of production, the first example of this was steam power and railways, which then grew to the introduction of electricity and synthetic chemistry, and finally led to electronics, computers and aerospace.
A University of Houston engineer is reporting in eNeuro that a brain-computer interface, a form of artificial intelligence, can sense when its user is expecting a reward by examining the interactions between single-neuron activities and the information flowing to these neurons, called the local field potential.
Project Page: http://prg.cs.umd.edu/EVDodge arXiv Pre-print: https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.02919 After re-imagining the navigation stack of a micro air vehicle as a series of hierarchical competences, we develop a purposive artificial intelligence based formulation for the problem of general navigation. We call this AI framework "Embodied AI'" - AI design based on the knowledge of the agent's hardware limitations and timing/computation constraints.
Millions of floating islands that convert atmospheric carbon dioxide to fuel could help protect our climate from the burning of fossil fuels, scientists have said. These proposed islands would be clustered together to create large-scale facilities that-if enough were built-could eventually offset the total global emissions from fossil fuels.
TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - A mangled red, white and blue patrol plane still lies across what was once a park here where families played and picnicked, nine months after Hurricane Michael stormed out of the Gulf of Mexico with its 155-mile-per-hour winds.
At the risk of sounding like a stuck record (or perhaps a looped .mp3 file, since this is 2019), infrastructure matters when it comes to getting people to switch to an electric vehicle. The best electric vehicle in the world is still just a paperweight on wheels if you can't recharge it before you get to your destination, after all.
Consultants say 60% will be grown in vats or plant-based products that taste like meat
Author: David Elliott, Chief Sub-Editor, Formative Content When Concorde landed for the final time in London, the crowds saw their dreams of flying faster than the speed of sound grounded along with the legendary plane. But now, a little over 15 years later, plans for ultra-fast air travel are once again taking off.
Uber has said Australia will become the first international market for its flying taxi service Uber Air. The firm has selected Melbourne as the third pilot city for its air taxi programme, joining Dallas and Los Angeles. Test flights are due to start from 2020, with the aim of launching commercial operations from 2023.
Posted June 12, 2019 16:40:32 Nearly a billion people are facing climate change hazards globally, with the Asia-Pacific region housing twice as many people living in areas with high exposure than all other regions combined, a new report has revealed.
