Future sex: A brave new world of hi-tech goo and virtual reality
Of course, the partners at each end of the gel-based romp will only be with each other as the result of a DNA analysis which helpfully narrowed down their choice of a compatible mate to a dozen-strong shortlist. The FutureFest, an annual event designed to explore how technology will impact...
This Robotic Hand Attached to Brain of Paralyzed Man Restores His Feeling of Touch
Why it matters to you We've come far from the days when robots were perceived as unfeeling automatons. Heck, one bot can understand humans -- and even write you a sonnet. Who needs a friend when you have a robot? Certainly not the team behind Musio, a communication robot that claims...
AI Won't Leave Half the World Unemployed
These headlines-and there were several-stem from comments by Rice University's computer scientist Moshe Vardi who at the weekend asked what society would do when, within 30 years, machines become capable of doing almost any job a human can. This report predicted that 47% of jobs in the US were under...
Want to live forever? - Humai aims to transfer people's consciousness into artificial bodies
As advancements in technology continue at an ever-increasing pace, will there ever come a day when we'll be able to use science to cheat death? The Australian startup company Humai seems to think so; it claims to be working on a way to transfer a person's consciousness into an artificial body after they've...
Artificial intelligent MRI's can aid in diagnosis of Alzheimer's
Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that allows computer programs to learn when exposed to new data without being programmed. Now, researchers in The Netherlands have coupled machine learning methods with a particular MRI technique that measures the perfusion, or tissue absorption rate, of blood throughout the brain...
Robotics for beginners - What is Robotics?
What is robotics? Coined by the science fiction author Isaac Asimov in 1968 in his “Three Laws of Robotics” book; the term refers to the science that studies the conception, design, manufacturing, and operation of robots.

Darktrace - Cybersecurity through Artificial Immune Systems
This year has been marked by some really interesting hacks all around. Whether it is the private email of CIA’s director John Brennan or hacks on private accounts on Ashley Madison, a great number of folks have been the victim of cybersecurity breaches. The cost of damages on average has been...
NASA's Breakthrough Laser Propulsion System Could Send Ships to Mars in Record Time
It might sound like science fiction, but we already know how to make objects move at near light speed. Physicists do it all the time inside particle accelerators, where they accelerate particles to relativistic speeds just a small fraction below the speed of light. Bwhen we try to reach these speeds...
Three Types of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence is a field that is going to expand rapidly in the coming decades. We (humans) have made tremendous strides in the development of Artificial Intelligence technology ever since Computers became mainstream back in the 1970s. According to AI scholars, an AI is defined as "A sense of intelligence exhibited...
