New NASA Emdrive paper shows force of 1.2 millinewtons per kilowatt in a Vacuum and a low thrust pendulum and tests were at 40, 60 and 80 watts

Posted by in category: space travel

The newest NASA emdrive paper concludes a force generation of 1.2mn/kw after errors measurement is accounted for.

A low thrust pendulum at the NASA Johnson space center was used.

The best conventional Hall thruster can produce 60 millinewtons per kilowatt which is an order of magnitude more than the emdrive that was tested.

Printable Organs Will Put an End to Transplant Lists

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, bioprinting, biotech/medical, life extension

A woman living on a dialysis machine is grown a new kidney using her own cells. A father struggling with age-related vision loss has his eyesight restored. A soldier suffers extensive burns and has his skin regenerated.

This is a glimpse of the holy grail of regenerative medicine. The ultimate goal of the field is to develop therapies that restore normal function to diseased tissues and organs. Advances in 3D bioprinting, the process of fabricating functional human tissue outside the body in a layer-by-layer fashion, have pushed the envelope on what is considered possible in the field.

Is Stephen Hawking right: Could the rise of artificial intelligence mark humanity’s final chapter?

Posted by in categories: existential risks, robotics/AI

Star physicist Stephen Hawking has reiterated his concerns that the rise of powerful artificial intelligence (AI) systems could spell the end for humanity.

Speaking at the launch of the University of Cambridge’s Centre for the Future of Intelligence on 19 October, he did, however, acknowledge that AI equally has the potential to be one of the best things that could happen to us.

So are we on the cusp of creating super-intelligent machines that could put humanity at existential risk?

‘Bots’ step up for 2016 election news coverage

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, robotics/AI, virtual reality

What I don’t understand is why haven’t we seen and experienced much media news, radio, etc. enhanced and even in some cases new desk people, etc. replaced by AI technology especially with how we can emulate a person in AI tech not to mention AR/ VR technology. Could we see a Bill O’Riely, or Megan Kelly, or MSNBC, etc. replaced by AI in the coming 3 to 5 years? Most definitely radio should consider.


If you’re reading about the US election, some of that news is likely to come to you from a “bot.”

Automated systems known as “bots” or “robo-journalism” have been around for years, but they are playing a bigger role in coverage this year amid technology advances and stretched media resources.
