Terasem Motion Infoculture/KurzweilAI | Kurzweil Interviews Minsky: Is Singularity Near? (2010)

  • Understanding how the brain works: “The brain is 400 different computers.”
  • Modeling and building a brain: “You can’t do it from the bottom up.”
  • Backing up the brain: “There’s no ‘you.’ … I’m not exactly like I was five minutes ago….”

NASA | 3D printed rocket engine roars to life

December 26, 2015

NASA - 3D printed engine - A1

NASA | A team at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama tested 3D printed rocket engine parts connected together in the same fashion that they would work in a rocket engine. The parts performance rivaled that of traditionally manufactured engine parts. During 6 separate tests, the engine generated up to 20,000 pounds of thrust.

Nanobots: The rise of the molecular machines (video)

October 14, 2015

nanoncar

Nanomachines — including nano-sized motors, rockets and even cars — are many orders of magnitude smaller than a human cell, but they have huge promise. In the future, they could deliver drugs anywhere in the body, clean up oil spills and might even be used as artificial muscle cells. Find out more about these molecular machines (and the challenges that nanobot researchers still face) in Reactions’ latest video, produced in collaboration… read more

Keiichi Matsuda | Augmented City 3D — an artist’s concept of embedded, real time augmented reality.

The architecture of the contemporary city is no longer simply about the physical space of buildings and landscape, more and more it is about the synthetic spaces created by the digital information that we collect, consume and organize.

An immersive interface may become as much part of the world we inhabit as… read more

Air Shepherd | Artificial intelligence drones are weapon against poachers

April 1, 2015

Air Shepherd - A7

Air Shepherd | Join us to stop the poaching of elephants and rhinos. 40,000 elephants were killed by poachers last year. Drones and supercomputers can stop it.

With 40% of the goal already raised, the campaign runs until April 11th, 2015 so there is still time to support this humane initiative. Visit the Indiegogo campaign to contibute to the project.

HP | The Machine: the Future of Computing

December 10, 2014

The Machine

The world is facing a data explosion. Soon, we’re going to hit a technology inflection point where we can’t effectively store, process, and secure all the information coming at us.

By 2020, 30 billion connected devices will generate unprecedented amounts of data. The infrastructure required to collect, process, store, and analyze this data requires transformational changes in the foundations of computing. Bottom line: current systems can’t handle where we… read more

Deep Learning RNN

Juergen Schmidhuber, PhD | Machine learning and pattern recognition are currently being revolutionised by “deep learning” (DL) Neural Networks (NNs). This is of commercial interest (for example, Google spent over 400m on start-up Deep Mind,co-founded by our student). I summarise work on DL since the 1960s, and our own work since 1991. Our recurrent NNs (RNNs) were the first to win official international competitions in pattern recognition and machine learning;… read more
