A team of Google researchers recently unwrapped the first computer program capable of learning largely impressive tasks independently, in what can be contemplated as a radical accomplishment in the field of artificial intelligence. The artificial intelligence system spends all of its time playing dozens of Atari videos games from the 80s like a crazy teenager. GAME-PLAYING ALGORITHM OUTPLAYS HUMANS AT ATARI GAMES The research project carried out by DeepMind Technologies, the British startup that Google acquired last year for $400...
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), a research company committed to building the revolutionary Hyperloop transit system, inspired by Elon Musk’s idea of making people travel in high-speed tubes, has secured a target launch date of 2016 to build a working full-scale demo version of the Hyperloop. It has signed a deal to build a five mile facility in New Central, California, which is a model town that was envisioned to be a 150,000-resident solar-powered city. The Hyperloop facility will be developed by a local developer Qwa...
A Samsung round-dial smartwatch codenamed Samsung Orbis is set to be released in March 2015, at the same time when Apple will be launching the Apple Watch. As of recently, Samsung has remained undauntedly square in its multiplication of wearables, much to the discontent of design experts over the globe. Round smartwatches are apparently extremely popular starting late. First and foremost, everybody loved the Motorola's Moto 360, emulated by LG's G Watch R. The LG-made webOS smartwatch was showcased at CES this year. Luckily it appears...
Bionics is a brilliant synthesis of poles apart branches of science that explores the interplay between electronics, human psychology and robotics. Intrinsically, it is one of the latest branches of science. Modern editions of popular dictionaries explain the word ‘bionic’ as a fictional character with artificial body parts; beings that are capable of doing things that average humans cannot do. The science of bionics has been around since the 1990s and has evolved exceptionally over the last decade. Bionics is said to be a futurist...
Microsoft and Sony battled to counter a conspicuous cyber attack on their video games networks over Christmas, leaving millions of customers unable to access entertainments and play games.

Beats Electronics submitted a case of corporate double-crossing against Monster, which had been its partner in launching Beats headphones in 2008. According to Lee, in an executive interview during the Monsters’ annual awards party and concert at the Consumer Electronics...
It seems that Google Inc. has made some great progress in its developing autonomous driving vehicles in the year of 2014! From an early design concept that was unveiled in May 2014 to a finished self-driving prototype which was showcased in late December, it has come along a turning point. The finished autonomous self-driving car looks like a compacted Volkswagen Beetle. During a mockup in May, it was announced that the self-driving car would not have a steering wheel, accelerator and brake pedals. In September, Google received ...
Ever since DIY robotics went mainstream, we come across geeky booze aficionados who build robotic bartenders to help them fix the perfect cocktail drinks. We’ve seen a dozen such cases previously, ranging from uncontrollably expound bots that fill an entire room, to tiny ones that pleasantly fit on your countertop and with each passing month, it looks like it’s going to be more than a growing fad. The most recent addition to the big family of robotic bartenders is Somadar. A lot of times, news of such booze-dispensing bots isn’t note...
