Brain implant will connect a million neurons with superfast bandwidth

Posted by in categories: military, neuroscience

A neural interface being created by the United States military aims to greatly improve the resolution and connection speed between biological and non-biological matter.

The Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) — a branch of the U.S. military — has announced a new research and development program known as Neural Engineering System Design (NESD). This aims to create a fully implantable neural interface able to provide unprecedented signal resolution and data-transfer bandwidth between the human brain and the digital world.

Theme of Life

Posted by in categories: business, media & arts

I usually keep my posts focused on business and technology; etc. However, as a professional, innovator, researcher, etc. I like sharing incredible finds that I come across. And, in my recent year, I came across a composer who is probably one of our greatest composers of our generation (at least to me he is). His name is Magnus Strömqvist, and he composed this incredible song entitled “” — there is truly one word that comes to mind when you hear this song “Powerful”.

“The money pouring into ed tech tells a different story, however. Despite the volume of novel products aimed at schools, the biggest investments are largely going to start-ups focused on higher education or job-related skills — businesses that feed a market of colleges, companies and consumers willing to spend to promote career advancement.”

For VR to be truly immersive, it needs convincing sound to match

The VR sound barrier; how do we address?


I’m staring at a large iron door in a dimly lit room. “Hey,” a voice says, somewhere on my right. “Hey buddy, you there?” It’s a heavily masked humanoid. He proceeds to tell me that my sensory equipment is down and will need to be fixed. Seconds later, the heavy door groans. A second humanoid leads the way into the spaceship where my suit will be repaired.

Researchers coax human stem cells to form complex tissues

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, engineering

The technique, which also has near-term implications for growing organ-like tissues on a chip, was developed by researchers at MIT and is unveiled in a study published today in the journal Nature Communications.

Growing organs on demand, using derived from patients themselves, could eliminate the lengthy wait that people in need of a transplant are often forced to endure before one becomes available.

It could also reduce the risk of a patient’s immune system rejecting the transplant, since the tissue would be grown from the patient’s own cells, according to Ron Weiss, professor of biological engineering at MIT, who led the research.

Study suggests the Internet really could out-evolve humanity

Posted by in categories: evolution, internet, robotics/AI

This article was written by Michael Gillings, Darrell Kemp, and Martin Hilbert from the University of California, Davis, and was originally published by The Conversation.

Living things accumulate and reproduce information. That’s really the driving principle behind life, and behind evolution. But humans have invented a new method of accumulating and reproducing information. It’s digital information, and it’s growing at an astonishing speed. The number of people using the internet is growing, as are the devices connected to it through the Internet of Things.

Digital information can copy itself perfectly, increases in copy number with every download or view, can be modified (mutated), or combined to generate novel information packets. And it can be expressed through artificial intelligence. These are characteristics similar to living things. So we should probably start thinking about digital technology as being like an organism that can evolve.
