NASA has planned to build a Starshade to look for Alien Planets. Starshade exoplanet-hunting missions may be technologically daunting.
The researchers from Stanford University and Seoul National University have developed an artificial nerve system that can not only sense differences in pressure but also read individual Braille letters. Better to say, they achieved to hook the artificial nerves up to the leg of a cockroach and make the limb twitch.View More Researchers Create an Artificial Nerve System That Can Transform Prosthetics
The Google announced opening of laboratory on quantum researching in the artificial intelligence. The laboratory is organized on the basis of Ames’s Research center of the American space agency NASA in California. Calculations within the project of creating an artificial intelligence will be made on the quantum computer of the Canadian D-Wave Systems. The main objective of researchers is formulated as “studying of opportunities of quantum calculations for performance of problems of machine training”. It is supposed that researchers will take part in the project from all over the world under the direction of noncommercial University association of space researches (USRA). 20 percent of computer time will be provided to the invited scientists.View More Google and D-Wave will create artificial intelligence quantum computer
The researchers from the University of Sheffield in U.K. are working on a project regarding the team of robots with an artificial intelligence, which could provide scientists to understand how robots rely on networking to accomplish simple tasks.
The research focused on 40 robots, which are capable of working as a group to different tasks, including pushing balls and navigating simple obstacles. Also, the robots are capable to separate and reorganize into different groups themselves.
While the movements of these robots are confined to simple movements, the scientists can provide the insight into how robots can be programmed for more complicated tasks.
The creation of the robots the team of researchers began with a simple goal. They wanted to create robots, which will be able to identify the position of nearby robots. The robot began to identify the position of nearby robot, and if none exist, it turns and begins to move in the opposite direction. The part of the researchers’ goal is the finding nearby robots.
Team of researchers from Harvard University and the California Institute of Technology has created an artificial and thus freely floating “jellyfish” silicon-based cells and living myocardium (heart muscle).The work of scientists may serve as evidence in favor of opportunities to put into practice the concept of re-engineering (reverse engineering) of various organs and muscle of simple living organisms. It also expands the concept of “synthetic life”, which previously implied replication of organic building blocks.
