Deep learning will be next big thing in artificial intelligence
Deep learning relies on simulating large, multilayered webs of virtual neurons, which enable a computer to learn to recognize abstract patterns. There is a huge investment opportunity with deep-learning, not only because of the technology itself but also because of how it is leveraging other technologies to become more powerful. The volumes...
Engineers developed fiber-optic technology that transmits data at record-speeds of 57 gigabits per second
With record-breaking speeds for fiber-optic data transmission, University of Illinois engineers have paved a fast lane on the information superhighway - creating on-ramps for big data in the process. As big data has gotten bigger, the need has grown for a high-speed data transmission infrastructure that can accommodate the ever-growing...
This robot waiter works 8-hour shifts and doesn't expect a tip

Death Is High-Tech in Japan's Futuristic Cemeteries
Nakajima's chosen Buddha statue is flanked on all sides by a collection of 2,045 LED-lit statues of variant hues, spread across the walls of this alternative graveyard space. Synced up to swipe cards, the statues glow a different color when a visitor arrives so they can be located more easily. As...
Monkeys taught to control robotic wheelchair
A pair of monkeys have learned to control a robotic wheelchair by thought alone, using electrodes implanted into their brains. Scientists were able to decode neural signals from the animals and turn these into commands for the wheelchair, allowing the monkeys to drive across a room to retrieve grapes from...
New glasses use mini-laser to project images directly onto retina
A Japanese company called QD Laser in collaboration with the University of Tokyo has developed a pair of glasses that come with a tiny camera that captures data and a laser that prints imagery from the camera directly onto the retina. The glasses are still in the prototype stage but...
