Robots to replace personnel in the Russian army

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

And, no one should say “Never” when it comes to people replaced by robots in the military.

Not good for the Russian military people.

Science fiction movies are quickly becoming a reality on the modern battlefield, as robots gradually supplant people in certain aspects of Russian military operations. The full automation of the armed forces using artificial intelligence is still a long way off, but some key functions once entrusted only to humans have already been passed on to machines.

How to Teleport Info Out of a Black Hole

Posted by in categories: computing, cosmology, quantum physics

Many folks often ask “What’s next for technology after Quantum?” Many suggests space, some folks suggest some sort of vNext technology or science that hasn’t been identified or fully discovered, etc. It truly is something that many of us have been asking ourselves for the past few years. However, there is still so much that still needs to be experimented with in ragards to Quantum; including teleporting information via Quantum from a black hole. And, what and how will this type of experiment improve our own usage of Quantum in the future.

The information that can be extracted from this hypothetical black hole is quantum information, meaning that instead of existing in either a 0 or 1 state, like a classical bit, the data collected would exist as a superposition of all potential states.

“We’ve demonstrated concretely that it is possible, in principle, to retrieve some quantum information from a black hole,” said study co-author Adam Jermyn, a doctoral candidate at the University of Cambridge in England. [The 9 Biggest Unsolved Mysteries in Physics]

‘Teleportation’ Lecture attracts large crowd

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

Very interesting. Teleporting and it’s potential use is really worth keeping a closer eye on especially with the progresses that we have seen so far with Quantum. Just 2 weeks ago, scientists were able to prove that one atom was able to co-exist in 2 locations during the same point of time.

Many members of the Stanford community came to an event called “Teleportation” last December. The event featured Tongcang Li, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy and assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue University, who discussed his work in quantum superposition, or having an entity simultaneously exist in two locations.

The event was organized by Anna Chukaeva, a first year student at the Graduate School of Business, and Evgeny Duhovny, a local graphic artist and DJ. The two have begun organizing campus events in conjunction with ArtSoFFT, a local group (not affiliated with Stanford). Driven by a desire to popularize and spread a love of science, the group has begun organizing a series of events at Stanford featuring scientists discussing their work.

Stephen Hawking publishes paper on black holes that could get him ‘a Nobel prize after all’

Posted by in category: cosmology

Definitely, long overdue for Mr. Hawkins. Hope he wins the Nobel.

Stephen Hawking has published what he claims could be evidence that his theories on black holes are true — a publication that could win him the Nobel prize.

The physicist hinted last year that he may have solved the black hole information paradox, which is concerned with the apparent problem of what happens to matter when it goes into a black hole.

Google Chairman Thinks AI Can Help Solve World’s ‘Hard Problems‘

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI

Wow! Talk about your “hot” topic; this will definitely have everyone across tech and the web talking:

(Bloomberg) — Googles chairman thinks artificial intelligence will let scientists solve some of the worlds “hard problems,” like population growth, climate change, human development, and education.

Rapid development in the field of AI means the technology can help scientists understand the links between cause and effect by sifting through vast quantities of information, said Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet Inc., the holding company that owns Google.

AI will play this role to navigate through this and help us.
