New experimental evidence also lays groundwork for new ways of studying time An Aalto University study has provided new evidence that time crystals can physically exist - a claim currently under hot debate. A time crystal is a structure that does not repeat in space, like normal three-dimensional crystals such as snowflakes or diamonds, but in time.
The race is on for companies to present their driverless cars to the public, but recent collisions involving autonomous vehicles developed by Uber Technologies Inc. and Tesla Inc. have led consumers to questions whether these vehicles can alleviate traffic issues and increase safety.
The world's deepest-pocketed investors are starting to take climate change seriously, according to Amundi SA. "We are really observing a tipping point among the institutional investors on climate change," said Frederic Samama, co-head of institutional clients at the Paris-based firm. "Until recently, that question was not on their radar screen.
Lamborghini and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) introduced the Terzo Millennio, an ultra-futuristic design study powered by electricity, last year to show what the eco-friendly sports car of tomorrow could look like.
This could be used to study how UBI affects people? If there isnt one with a low enough $value to make sense, create one?
Dolly, the first animal to be cloned from an adult of its species, was born 20 years ago today at the Roslin Institute in Scotland. When her creators announced what they had done, it triggered warnings of rich people cloning themselves for spare parts, of tyrants cloning soldiers for armies, of bereaved parents cloning their dead child to produce a replacement - and promises that the technique would bring medical breakthroughs.
Prof. Ajay Agrawal, founder of the Creative Destruction Lab and co-founder of the AI/robotics company Kindred, explored the economics behind the creation of artificial intelligence. April 18th, 2018
Google and Facebook both do a nice job identifying your friends in photos-a testament to how good machines have gotten at studying human faces. But how well would an algorithm fare, when pitted against a forensic facial examiner... the experts that testify in court?
The French electric utility Engie announced last week that it's going to develop 300 megawatts of wind energy across nine wind farms in Spain, backed by $350 million (€300 million) in investment. Here's the key: It's doing all this without government support. And it's far from the only European energy company willing to make a bet like this.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Sunday that people "should be marching in the streets" to demand changes to "antiquated" education systems that aren't preparing students to be competitive in the job market against the robots of the future.
Bosch Engineer Derek Howard shows how Bosch's new automatic emergency braking system will save cyclists lives.
As if the line between human and machine wasn't already blurry enough, researchers in Tokyo have developed a new method for using living rat muscle tissue in robotics. The "biohybrid" design, described today in the journal Science Robotics , simulates the look and movements of a human finger.
Clean technology is more than just a 'greenwash' that some have accused the e-tech and energy industries of posturing behind in a bid to appear more environmentally conscious and consumer friendly. Generating and using clean energy can have a real positive environmental impact and emerging cost-effective innovations in clean technology mean a greater influence can be made on both environmental and societal levels.
The new field of biohybrid robotics involves the use of living tissue within robots, rather than just metal and plastic. Muscle is one potential key component of such robots, providing the driving force for movement and function.
