Seemingly, the Facebook family is now moving towards a new feature, the cross platform notifications. Facebook Family getting Intertwined for Notifications All the three apps are personally te...
We have got electric cars, smaller cars, and cars with a better gas mileage. What we haven’t seen yet is some kind of technological evolution with transportation. While a lot of ‘technological’ fixes have been given little to some amount of attention, not all of them have gained repute for ushering in green revolution. Every day, engineers are taking a different route, designing more environmentally sustainable modes of transportation that may overturn long-held notions greener, efficient traveling. This year, we have some of the most...
If you think that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be clubbed with the human brain only in sci-fi movies like Ex Machina, The Matrix, or Ghost in The Shell; CEO Elon Musk is going to prove that wrong, in the near future. The multi-billionaire is planning to back a venture working on the brain-computer interfaces named ‘Neuralink’; according to reports on the Wall Street Journal (WSJ). From aerospace to electric vehicles (EV’s), the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla now wants to merge the human brains with computers, by launching Neuralink. V...
Imagine a world with computers that run 1,00,000 times faster than the current ones! It can drastically change lives and every aspect related to humanity. Such computers can help discover planets and galaxies, diagnose diseases, and do many tasks earlier than usual. Interestingly, a team of researchers; including some engineers from the University of Michigan, say that they have found a way to achieve this, with electrons and small laser pulses. In Science, ‘femtosecond’ means one quadrillionth of a second. This team of researchers h...
A Press Release by IBM states that it has created the world’s smallest magnet. It has been done using a single atom and stored one bit of data on it. At present, the hard-disk drives use around 1,00,000 atoms to store a single bit of data. This new research helps to read and write one-bit data on one atom. It creates possibilities for developing denser storage devices that are significantly small. For example, such devices may enable the storage of almost 35 million songs on a credit card sized device. IBM’s Research on Single Atom...

In the 1970s, NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) conducted space colony summer studies on Bernal Spheres and Toroidal Colonies which could hold a population of up to 10,000 living in space, and on Cylindrical Colonies which could hold a population of 1,000,000. This, of course, blossomed from the fertile imagination of Apollo-era scientists, who dreamed of propelling humanity spaceward. Between the late 70s and 90s, the romance with a great rotating wheel in space, with skylight windows, vegetation, rivers and dwellings died. And so did ...
Artificial Intelligence is a fascinating subject. If we’re talking about robotics, a majority of individuals might regard AI as a fascinating field.
