Want an outfit that can change on command, or a device that could lead you to new friends?
Thanks to machine learning and big data, Deepfield Robotics had built a robot named, Bonirob, which picks out weeds in crops.
In a world where technology is rapidly changing, Wu Pei began teaching her 6-year-old son to code. She began this journey thinking he’d enjoy learning a new skill that might boost his future job prospects, but now she runs classes in Nanjing, China to help parents introduce their children to the world of coding.
After a decades-long quest, a team from the University of Washington has successfully used a laser to cool down a liquid.
Uber users are now able to switch to a ‘business’ account to expense work-related rides to their company and allows them to track personal rides separately.

Coinbase announced last week a new Bitcoin debit card that will allow U.S. users to pay with Bitcoin anywhere Visa is accepted.
Swedish scientists are taking the futuristic idea of plant cyborgs and making the leap from science fiction to real-world science. They have been working on ways to regulate plant growth, using electronic wires grown inside the plants own nutrient channels to host sensors and drug-delivery systems. The aim is to provide just the right amount of plant hormones at just the right time. Such efforts could provide even more precise human control over plant production and agriculture.
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 programming, thereby sustaining a dialog using processes that resemble mental actions.
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.
