Enjoy the Singularity: How to Be Optimistic About the Future

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, singularity, transportation

I’m already fairly optimistic. Y2K was supposed to drop planes of the sky. Yet we’re here. You’re more likely to die in a car wreck than plane wreck yet most people are more scared of flying than driving and flipping off people with road rage.

From ChatGPT to driverless cars, we need to be hopeful about progress.

These 6 Types of Music Are Known to Dramatically Improve Productivity

Posted by in categories: media & arts, neuroscience

I used to listen to classical music more. I’m going to start again. I was searching for an article that said music helps heal brain injury but I can only find ones where it’s playing instruments that does that. But the Mozart effect is healthy and relaxing.

Just another example of how much you gain by listening.

How Music Helps to Heal the Injured Brain

Posted by in categories: media & arts, neuroscience

Using music to heal the brain. If you have a TBI or know someone with one like myself, music is very therapeutic. Get some nice earbuds or over the way headphones. Wired is best or get some with long battery life. I find I feel peace and relief when I listen to certain types of music.

Why neurologic music therapy should be part of standard rehabilitation care.

5 Best Types of Video Games for TBI Rehabilitation

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, entertainment, media & arts, neuroscience

Who would have thought that video games are good for TBI? I play them sometimes. Time for that, and not just music.

Video games may help TBI patients recover their physical and cognitive abilities faster than traditional therapy, according to recent research.

Although they might seem like just a pleasant distraction, video games engage several parts of the brain at once and can even promote neuroplasticity.

Team develops large-scale stretchable and transparent electrodes

Posted by in categories: nanotechnology, solar power, sustainability, wearables

A Korean research team has developed a large-scale stretchable and transparent electrode for use as a stretchable display. The Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) announced that a research team, led by Dr. Sang-Soo Lee and Dr. Jeong Gon Son at KIST’s Photo-Electronic Hybrids Research Center, has developed a technology to fabricate a large-area (larger than an A4 sized paper) wavy silver nanowire network electrode that is structurally stretchable with a high degree of conductivity and transparency.

Transparent electrodes, through which electricity flows, are essential for solar cell-and touchscreen-based display devices. An (ITO)-based is currently commercialized for use. The ITO-based transparent is made of a thin layer of metallic oxides that have very low stretchability and is very fragile. Thus, the ITO electrode is not well suited for flexible and wearable devices, which are expected to quickly become mainstream products in the electronic device market. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a new transparent electrode with stretchability as one of its main features.

A nanowire is tens of nanometers in diameter, and the nano material itself is long and thin like a stick. The small size of the nanowire allows it to be bent when an external force is applied. Since it is made of silver, a silver nanowire has excellent electrical conductivity and can be used in a random network of straight to fabricate a highly transparent and flexible electrode. However, despite the fact that silver nanowire is bendable and flexible, it cannot be used as a stretchable material.

Bifunctional flexible electrochromic supercapacitors successfully fabricated

Posted by in categories: energy, nanotechnology, wearables

Researchers from the Harbin Institute of Technology and Southern University of Science and Technology have fabricated bifunctional flexible electrochromic energy-storage devices based on silver nanowire flexible transparent electrodes.

Publishing in the International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing, the team used silver nanowire flexible transparent electrodes as the current collector for a bifunctional flexible electrochromic supercapacitor.

This bifunctional flexible device can exhibit its energy status through color changes, and can serve as an energy supplier for various wearable electronics, such as physiological sensors. The findings could have a widespread impact on the future development of smart windows for energy-efficient buildings.

The best of both worlds: A new algorithm fuses quantum and classical information for high-quality imaging

Posted by in categories: computing, information science, quantum physics

Researchers from Colorado State University and the Colorado School of Mines have thought up a new computational imaging strategy that exploits the best of both the quantum and classical worlds. They developed an efficient and robust algorithm that fuses quantum and classical information for high-quality imaging. The results of their research were published Dec. 21 in Intelligent Computing.

Recently, the quantum properties of light have been exploited to enable super resolution microscopy. While quantum information brings new possibilities, it has its own set of limitations.

The researchers’ approach is based on classical and quantum correlation functions obtained from photon counts, which are collected from quantum emitters illuminated by spatiotemporally structured illumination. Photon counts are processed and converted into signals of increasing order, which contain increasing spatial frequency information. The higher spatial resolution information, however, suffers from a reduced signal-to-noise ratio at increasingly larger correlation orders.
