Brain Implants Can Allow People To Control Machines With Their Mind

Brain Implant Developed In Australia Can Allow People To Control Machines With Their Minds

by CHIRPon June 6, 2016
Scientists in Australia are currently in the process of developing an implant that will give paralyzed and heavily disabled patients the ability to control machines through their thoughts as well as monitor and predict seizures. Able to record specific brain activity and function, the tiny implant known as astentrode will eventually be placed into a blood vessel located […]
Tesla Self Driving Collecting 3 Mil Miles Daily

Tesla Is Gathering Twice As Many Miles of Self-Driving Data Every Day Compared To Google’s Entire Atonomous Project

by CHIRPon June 2, 2016
If you combine the total miles driven in autonomous mode by all Tesla Model S and X’s on the road at the moment, you get about 3 million miles a day. That’s about twice the distance that Google’s self-driving car project has done since it’s start. What does this mean? It means that Tesla is collecting a much larger amount of […]

India Has Successfully Launched And Recovered A Reusable Space Craft

by CHIRPon May 26, 2016
India has just joined the reusable space craft game, and they’re rocket looks awesome. Launched and recovered just this week by the ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) around 9 AM local time, the rocket reached a height of 43 miles and then safely glided to a landing. At only 7-meters long, the prototype reusable spacecraft is […]

New Driverless Uber Being Tested In Pittsburgh

by CHIRPon May 25, 2016
With all the advances in driverless cars over the past few years, it was only a matter of time until the pre-booked ride kings ‘Uber’ got into the game. Now it’s official, they are testing a driverless Uber on the streets of Pittsburgh. “If you’re driving around Pittsburgh in the coming weeks you might see […]

entropy directly linked to time

New Study Suggests That Dark Energy Is The Reason Time Moves Forward

by CHIRPon May 24, 2016
The Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that the disorder of a closed system like our universe must always increase, never decrease. Also known as ‘entropy’, it’s the reason that things do no reassemble or come back to life. When objects like stars, our planet and humanity are created, they add energy to the universe. This in turn adds […]

Google TPU For Artificial Intelligence

Google Is Developing An Artificial Intelligence Chip

by CHIRPon May 23, 2016
Google has just uncovered one of it’s newest and most impressive hardware innovations. Called the Tensor Processing Unit (TPU), it is a custom built ASIC with the specific goal of machine learning. Created for Google’s open source software library for machine learning called TensorFlow, it promises performance far beyond current chips capabilities. The TPU is already in use at […]
Zapping Clouds With Lasers Could Cool The Planet

Shooting Clouds With Lasers Could Potentially Lower The Planet’s Temperature

by CHIRPon May 22, 2016
Our planets temperature is rising every year. Scientists and thinkers alike have been trying to come up with a way to reverse this trajectory of rising temperatures. It seems that they may have just figured out how to…at east in a small way. Reported in Science Advances, it’s been discovered that zapping tiny ice particles within cirrus clouds breaks them […]

A New Form of Light Has Been Discovered

Physicists Have Discovered A New Form of Light

by CHIRPon May 17, 2016
In order to understand these new findings, it will be best to first explain a little bit about our current understand of light. Most notably ‘Planck’s constant’ and angular momentum. ‘Planck’s constant’ is a physical constant that is the quantum of action, central in quantum mechanics. In simpler words, it’s the link between the energy a photon […]

New Robot Unfolds Once Swallowed And Can Remove Foreign Objects/Patch Wounds

New “Origami” Robot Unfolds Once Swallowed — Successfully Removed A Battery From A Stomach

by CHIRPon May 16, 2016
A team of researchers at MIT (and two other universities) have just invented an ingestible robot that once swallowed can unfold itself in your stomach, potentially healing wounds and removing foreign objects. Unveiled by a group of researchers from MIT, the University of Sheffield and the Tokyo Institute of Technology, the capsule can be guided by an external […]
