Scientists create ANNABELL, an artificial system capable of learning human language

November 20th, 2015 at 4:06 pm » Comments Off

One of the most impressive complex cognitive processes is the ability to learn and creatively use language. It’s those processes that continue to set humans apart from even the most advanced machines. However, a team of scientists has now created an artificial system of neurons that is capable of learning words, phrases and syntax with no prior […]

A team of scientists from Imperial College London have proposed a laser model that can could heat materials to temperatures hotter than the center of the Sun in just 20 quadrillionths of a second. That’s 10 million degrees Celsius almost instantaneously.

Top 3 ways exponential technology will impact the future of learning

November 20th, 2015 at 3:44 pm » Comments Off

Exponential technologies tend to move at a slow pace then to a disruptively fast pace. We often don’t notice technologies in the deceptive growth phase, until they begin changing the way we live and do business. Driven by information technologies,  products and services become digitized, dematerialized, demonetized and/or democratized and enter a phase of exponential […]

Australian engineers prove quantum computer coding in silicon now possible

November 19th, 2015 at 11:02 am » Comments Off

Engineers in Australia have have proven, with the highest score ever achieved, that a quantum version of computer code can be written, and manipulated, using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip. The advance removes lingering doubts that such operations can be made reliably enough to allow powerful quantum computers to become a reality.

Philip Saunders: This is the age of disruption. What we’re witnessing is a shift from territorial monopolies on the use of force as a way of ordering civilization, toward a world of borderless civic networks. Or, in the words of Tom W. Bell, a move from nation states to stateless nations, which extend the dynamics of […]

BitDrones give a glimpse into the future of virtual reality
