BUT DON’T EXPECT MAMMOTH CLONES ANYTIME SOON
“US aviation officials announced Thursday they will allow online giant Amazon to carry out testing for its drone program”
Google and UCSB researchers showed they could detect certain kinds of error, and prevent those errors from ruining a calculation. The new advance comes from researchers led by John Martinis, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, who last year joined Google to set up a quantum computing research lab…
Orbital Insight uses image processing, neural networks, machine learning, and statistical analysis in search of insights from satellite imagesThe convergence of more powerful big data analysis tools, more intelligent machine learning algorithms, and more readily available satellite imagery has laid the groundwork for Orbital Insight. Many of Orbital’s customers are companies seeking information independent from […]
“the world is full of such hard decisions—determining how robot cars (or robots generally) can appropriately deal with such choices will be critical to their development and adoption”

Adriano Sampaio is a tireless urban expeditionist, walking the city in search of lost rivers and springs
CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere have likely not been seen since at least the end of the Oligocene 23 million years ago
“1 gram of DNA is theoretically capable of holding 455 exabytes – It’s also incredibly durable: results suggest that data in DNA form could last 2000 years if kept at a temperature of around 10 °C…”
“The Acceleration of Acceleration: How The Future Is Arriving Far Faster Than Expected” BY STEVEN KOTLER
“For the first time in history, the world’s leading experts on accelerating technology are consistently finding themselves too conservative in their predictions about the future of that technology.”
A Robot Scientist is a laboratory automation system that uses artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to discover scientific knowledge through cycles of experimentation. One validated discovery is that the anti-cancer compound TNP-470 is a potent inhibitor of dihydrofolate reductase from the malaria-causing parasite Plasmodium vivax.
This work reports the development of a scalable, integrated bioelectrochemical system to efficiently convert CO2, along with H2 and O2 produced from water splitting, into biomass and fuel
Small UAV Coalition boasts some heavy hitters that have a vested interest in promoting the commercial and civil use of UAVs. The group is also looking to support recreational use of small UAVs for hobbyists.
