Study says men and women may be wired to behave differently

Posted by in categories: health, neuroscience, robotics/AI

Another example backing up the fact that AI and any brain mapping & cognitive thinking efforts will require both male and female engineers leading and developing AI together.


Male and female behavioural differences correlate with their different brain networks, say researchers, including one of Indian origin… Read health articles & blogs at TheHealthSite.com

The Truth Behind Robo-Advisors

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Excellent article; it truly does level set reality from fiction around AI. There has been so much hype lately around AI; and my own concerns is will people wake up in the next 5 to 7 years with the AI disappointment hangover. I believe we have to be very cautious in overpromise and under delivery. Be inspirational as well as realistic is my advice to other leaders across tech.


Robo-advisors are marketed and sold as being more “intelligent” than their human counterparts. But are they actually more intelligent?

Tachyon physics with trapped ions

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

It has been predicted that particles with imaginary mass, called tachyons, would be able to travel faster than the speed of light. There has not been any experimental evidence for tachyons occurring naturally. Here, we propose how to experimentally simulate Dirac tachyons with trapped ions. Quantum measurement on a Dirac particle simulated by a trapped ion causes it to have an imaginary mass so that it may travel faster than the effective speed of light. We show that a Dirac tachyon must have spinor-motion correlation in order to be superluminal. We also show that it exhibits significantly more Klein tunneling than a normal Dirac particle. We provide numerical simulations of realistic ion systems and show that our scheme is feasible with current technology.

Black Holes Could Be Gateways After All

Posted by in categories: computing, cosmology, physics

Physicists can now simulate the interiors of black holes using high-powered computers–and it looks like science fiction authors were right: black holes could be portals for space travel.

Arcaboard will sell for $14,900 in April and will only fly for six minutes

Posted by in category: transportation

Arca Space Corporation in New Mexico has developed an electronic flying vehicle that can hover over any terrain, including water. The design can hold up to 243 lbs and flies a foot above the ground.

The ArcaBoard’s creators are calling it the first revolutionary breakthrough in motion since the bicycle, automobile, and airplane, and say it will allow every person to fly whenever they want.

“We will find new things everywhere we look.” –Hunter S. Thompson

At the rate of 21st century technological innovation, each year brings new breakthroughs across industries. Advances in quantum computers, human genome sequencing for under $1,000, lab-grown meat, harnessing our body’s microbes as drugs, and bionic eye implants that give vision to the blind —the list is long.

We’ve found evidence the Milky Way is one of hundreds of galaxies being sucked in by a mysterious force called the ‘Great Attractor’

Posted by in category: space

The Milky Way and hundreds of galaxies surrounding it are being drawn toward a mysterious force scientists call the “Great Attractor”.

And it took the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation’s (CSIRO) Parkes telescope to see them.

The force was first revealed back in the 1970s, when it was discovered that the Milky Way was one of hundreds of galaxies deviating from the “universe is expanding” model.
