Why you might want to leave those dandelions alone

Posted by in category: food

Nothing can threaten a velvety green lawn like vagabond dandelions—but it isn’t all bad, says a University of Alberta gardening expert.

In fact, people may want to actually welcome the fluffy yellow blooms into their yards, said Ken Willis, head of horticulture at the U of A Botanic Garden.

“There’s starting to be a lot more argument that they should be kept because of what they can do for pollinators. Ecologically they are becoming very important as a for domestic and wild species of bees, particularly in early spring because they grow so soon. Butterflies and moths also feed on them as a source of sugar, and some species of birds feed on seeds,” said Willis, who leaves room for the hardy plant in in the .

10 mysteries of the universe: Why does anything exist at all?

Posted by in category: particle physics

It actually makes more sense that all the foundational physics laws do not exist but somehow they do. That is why I still believe there is some governing force that controls the parameters possibly. It makes more sense that our universe somehow was not created than it all somehow just magically sustained itself. That is why I think aliens created the universe as a containment possibly or that the laws of physics somehow are not completely know of how they all work together. Some talk about super symmetry but still seems some sorta things are still not know and we may never know until the theory of everything can be created.

Our best theories predict that all the matter in the universe should have been destroyed as soon as it existed. So how comes there’s something, not nothing?

When convenience meets surveillance: AI at the corner store

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, surveillance

At some convenience stores, an A.I. system may bar the door if you look like the suspected criminals in its database, or if you’re wearing a mask. That’s part of the growing use of facial recognition and video analytics, a…

Soldiers’ Art: What traumatic brain injury feels like

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, military, neuroscience

Active-duty military members suffering from PTSD and traumatic brain injuries made these masks in an art therapy group at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, located at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

This mask was created by an Airman who was exposed to multiple blast injuries in combat while working on a bomb disposal unit, called EOD — Explosive Ordnance Disposal. The mask incorporates the laurels, shield, and lightning bolts of the EOD insignia.

Top 22 Best Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Movies of All Time

Posted by in categories: entertainment, robotics/AI

Recently, we have started to hear the concept of artificial intelligence as often as we have never met. This technology, which is no longer a fantastic science fiction element but is included in our lives, is ranked first among the technology trends that will shape the years to come.

Artificial intelligence, which can be explained by the fact that computers can make use of human thinking, reasoning, perception, comprehension, judgment and inference abilities, is the understanding of information about the environment of a machine in practice.

In this way, an artificial intelligence system optimizes the acquired data and becomes usable in daily life. We can say that many studies have been done about artificial intelligence from past to present, some of them being shelved and some of them pioneering today’s technology.
