New Artificial Intelligence system can decode your mind Washington | Scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence system that can decode the human mind, and interpret what a person is seeing by analysing brain scans. The advance could aid efforts to improve artificial intelligence (AI) and lead to new insights into brain function. Critical to the research is a type of algorithm called a convolutional neural network, which has been instrumental in enabling computers and smartphones to recognise faces and objects. “That type of network has made an enormous impact…

Smart fabrics that store data without electronics developed

Smart fabrics

Smart fabrics that store data without electronics developed Washington | Smart fashion accessories with invisible security codes to your office or apartment could soon make keys a thing of the past, say scientists, including one of Indian origin, who have developed fabrics that can secretly store data without any electronics or sensors. Smart fabrics : Most people today combine conductive thread – embroidery thread that can carry an electrical current – with other types of electronics to create outfits, stuffed animals or accessories that light up or communicate. However, scientists…

China to establish robot station on moon

Robot station

China to establish robot station on moon  Beijing | China is planning to establish a robot station on the moon to conduct bigger and more complicated experimental research on lunar geography, a media report said today. The station could slash the costs of returning rock samples to Earth, said Jiao Weixin, a Peking University space science professor. A sustainable robot station would enhance lunar geography studies and “have better energy efficiency than lunar rovers as the station can deploy a much bigger solar power- generator,” he said. The base can…

Tiny magnetic robots could treat hard-to-reach body parts

Tiny magnetic

Tiny magnetic robots could treat hard-to-reach body parts Beijing | Scientists have developed a swarm of robots measuring about the size of a blood cell that can be remotely operated to diagnose and treat illness in hard-to- reach areas of the human body. Tiny magnetic : The robots, manufactured by coating tiny algae with magnetic particles, can be tracked in tissue close to the skin’s surface by imaging the algae’s natural fluorescence, and in hard-to-reach deeper tissue by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In tests, a swarm of robots a few…

New form of matter ‘excitonium’ discovered

excitonium

New form of matter ‘excitonium’ discovered Los Angeles | Scientists have proven the existence of new form of matter called excitonium – which was first theorised almost 50 years ago. Researchers from University of California Berkeley and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the US studied non-doped crystals of the transition metal dichalcogenide titanium diselenide (1T-TiSe2). Excitonium is a condensate – it exhibits macroscopic quantum phenomena, like a superconductor. It is made up of excitons, particles that are formed in a very strange quantum mechanical pairing, namely that of an…

Jackpot of fossilized pterosaur eggs unearthed in China

Jackpot

Jackpot of fossilized pterosaur eggs unearthed in China Jackpot : Hundreds of eggs belonging to a species of flying reptile that lived alongside dinosaurs are giving scientists a peek into the earliest development of the animals. The find includes at least 16 partial embryos, several still preserved in 3-D. Those embryos suggest that the animals were able to walk, but not fly, soon after hatching, researchers report in the Dec. 1 Science. Led by vertebrate paleontologist Xiaolin Wang of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, the scientists uncovered at least 215…

New 3-D printed materials harness the power of bacteria

printed materials

New 3-D printed materials harness the power of bacteria Items made with ‘living ink’ could make medical supplies or clean contaminated water A new type of 3-D printing ink has a special ingredient: live bacteria. Printed materials : Materials made with this “living ink” could help clean up environmental pollution, harvest energy via photosynthesis or help make medical supplies, researchers report online December 1 in Science Advances. This study “shows for the first time that 3-D printed bacteria can make useful materials,” says Anne Meyer, a biologist at Delft University of Technology in…

Top stories

Top stories Two new letters for the genetic code, stat checking psychology, and the formerly abominable snowman Scientists just added two functional letters to the genetic code Top stories : All life forms on Earth use the same genetic alphabet of the bases A, T, C, and G—nitrogen-containing compounds that constitute the building blocks of DNA and spell out the instructions for making proteins. Now, scientists have developed the first bacterium to use extra letters, or unnatural bases, to build proteins. The traditional four DNA bases code for 20 amino…

NASA Prepares its Science Fleet for Oct. 19 Mars Comet Encounter  Prepares :NASA’s extensive fleet of science assets, particularly those orbiting and roving Mars, have front row seats to image and study a once-in-a-lifetime comet flyby on Sunday, Oct. 19.Comet C/2013 A1, also known as comet Siding Spring, will pass within about 87,000 miles (139,500 kilometers) of the Red Planet — less than half the distance between Earth and our moon and less than one-tenth the distance of any known comet flyby of Earth. Siding Spring’s nucleus will come closest…

What is science and technology ?

What is science and technology ? Science and Technology is gift from Almighty Lord for this modern civilization. We live in age of science. We can see the wonders of it around us. Actually science has made our life so easy and comfortable moreover now we can not think our daily life without science. The first wonder of science is electricity and though all creation day by day opened to us by the welfare of science.         On the other hand, technology means the articulation of a craft. Technology contributes…
