BBC Click has look at what could be the future of data storage: DNA. They also cover some interesting work in voice recognition.
KurzGesagt has a great video explaining the specific challenges around building a permanent base on Mars. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it to make humans a multi-planet species.
The very term “time crystal” conjures up all sorts of sci-fi imagery. It turns out that they are very real and may be a major breakthrough for quantum computing.
Fusion power has long been promised as a clean and virtually limitless source of power. Yet, this dream has thus far eluded our most brilliant scientists. Could AI help unlock this?
Here’s an interesting (and alarming) documentary from the BBC that looks at how to simulate the outbreak of a pandemic with data.
This amazing 3D-printed graphene supercapacitor electrode could be a remarkable breakthough in a technology that is holding us all back: battery technology. Think about it, everything from electric cars, resilient power grids, renewable energy, and our smartphones all rely on energy storage technology that are decades if not centuries years old.
Could we start building a base on the moon with today’s technology? It may not be as far fetched as it sounds. It would also make a great testing ground for new technologies and a launching point for exploring the rest of the solar system.
Fusion energy might be the safe, efficient, reliable and clean energy source that could save our planet. But, how close are we to a world where fusion energy becomes a thing?
3D printing technology has enabled the creation of DIY prosthetics and now throw in some AI for smart artificial limbs, science is at the forefront of many life-enhancing innovations.
Bionic technology has gone from science fiction and is removing physical barriers faced by disabled people.
In case you’re curious about how soon you’ll need to start working with qubits or worry about all encryption going away, here’s a realistic look at where we stand with quantum computing as of May 2018.
