Use Your Body's Electrical Field To Uniquely Identify Yourself

Use Your Body's Electrical Field To Uniquely Identify Yourself | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

You are unique. This is one of the more obscure ways you're unique: An alternating current of different frequencies running through you causes a reaction that's noticeably different from anyone else's. Researchers from Dartmouth University are trying to put this difference to use by creating wearable electronics that respond to--and only to--their intended user.

Computer Program 'Evolves' Music From Noise

Computer Program 'Evolves' Music From Noise | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

From Mozart to the Beatles, music evolves as listeners get used to sounds they initially find strange or even shocking. As trailblazing music becomes mainstream, artists strike out in new directions. But in a new study, a computer program shows how listeners drive music to evolve in a certain way. Although the resulting strains are hardly Don Giovanni, the finding shows how users' tastes exert their own kind of natural selection, nudging tunes to evolve out of noise.

[VIDEO] Future Learning

Students are the future, but what's the future for students? To arm them with the relevant, timeless skills for our rapidly changing world, we need to revolutionize what it means to learn. Education innovators like Dr. Sugata Mitra, visiting professor at MIT; Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy; and Dr. Catherine Lucey, Vice Dean of Education at UCSF, are redefining how we engage young minds for a creatively and technologically-advanced future. Which of these eduvators holds the key for unlocking the learning potential inside every student?

Forget Google Glasses: Our ‘Smart Phones’ Will Soon Be Contact Lenses | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

You wake up in the morning, rub your sleepy eyes. As you’re getting ready to face the day you put in your contact lens, which will make the Internet and all your files, playlists, GPS, favorite apps, and addicting games literally available with the blink of an eye. Scientists are already at the animal testing phase of the technology that will make this possible.

The Robotic Future is Fast, Cheap and Out of Control

The Robotic Future is Fast, Cheap and Out of Control | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

The robotic future is here, and it looks nothing like we thought it would. Instead of humanoid, highly-intelligent robots that do our bidding, the future is increasingly one of robotic swarms, robotic quadrotors, and tiny robots no larger than insects that perform surgery. The robotics revolution, in short, is fast, cheap and out of control

RoboBees Project

RoboBees Project | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

The researchers are working on creating robotic bees that fly autonomously and coordinate activities amongst themselves and the hive, much like real bees. The research team aims to drive research in compact, high-energy power sources, ultra-low-power computing and the design of distributed algorithms for multi-agent systems. Furthermore, the RoboBees created will provide unique insights into how Mother Nature conjures such elegant solutions to solve complex problems.

A group of Japanese neuroscientists is trying to peer into the mind --- literally.

 

They have devised a way to turn the brain’s opaque gray matter into a glassy, see-through substance that could help neuroscientists map the brain’s underlying architecture, the “connectome.”
