The Navy's UAV sets down on the USS George H. W. Bush.

 

Check off another box for the U.S. Navy's jet fighter-sized UAV. Two months after the semi-autonomous X-47B executed its first catapult carrier takeoff, the Navy has now released the footage of the plane completing its first arrested landing. The plane touched down on the USS George H.W. Bush off the coast of Virginia today. It's the first unmanned carrier landing for the Navy.

Super Hero Gadgets You Can Actually Buy

Super Hero Gadgets You Can Actually Buy | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it

With less than a week until NYC Comic Con, ideas begin to spark and many wonder what type of super hero they would want to be.  Flying, x-ray vision, super human strength, and walking on walls are some of the super powers most people would dream of having. Luckily for the dreamers, technology has been improving dramatically over the years making these fantasies attainable.  Whether you want to be the classic caped crusader protecting Gotham City or a smooth secret agent like James Bond, special gadgets we’ve seen our favorite heroes use time and time again have been developed for the modern man.

Sharrock's insight:

Jetpacks, better nightvision, robotic suits, etc. To misquote Jack Nicholson's Joker question, "Where do they get such wonderful toys?"

The Biggest Organism on Earth

The Biggest Organism on Earth | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Pointing out what the biggest animal or organism on Earth is might seem like a pretty easy thing to do, but first appearances can be quite deceiving.
Sharrock's insight:

This video takes less than 3 minutes to explore the question. I noted that it is also a critical thinking piece because of the problem's distinctions. It also explores the process of questioning and questions in general. It is not so simple trying to define and find the biggest obranism on Earth.

In all the centuries that humans have studied chemical reactions, just 36 basic types of reactions have been found. Now, thanks to the work of researchers at MIT and the University of Minnesota, a 37th type of reaction can be added to the list.

 


Sharrock's insight:

I love this kind of information: there are now 37 basic types of chemical reactions.

X Prize's Peter Diamandis: The Techno-Optimist

X Prize's Peter Diamandis: The Techno-Optimist | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Peter Diamandis founded the X Prize Foundation in 1995 to use competitions and cash prizes to jump-start innovation.
Sharrock's insight:

from the itnerview: "Over the past 100 years, the human life span has more than doubled, the cost of food has dropped thirteenfold, energy has dropped twentyfold, transportation has dropped a hundredfold, communications has dropped over a thousandfold. All of these things have been enabled by technology—and the rate at which technological innovation is occurring is accelerating, not slowing down. I think we're heading toward epic, extraordinary change. I think we're going to transform the way we live, the way we work, the way we govern. I think every aspect of society is going to fundamentally change over the next 30 years."

AI's 10 to Watch 2013 - IEEECS

AI's 10 to Watch 2013 - IEEECS | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it

Every two years, IEEE Intelligent Systems acknowledges and celebrates 10 young stars in the field of AI as "AI's 10 to Watch." These accomplished researchers have all completed their doctoral work in the past five years. Despite being relatively junior in their career, each one has made impressive research contributions and had an impact in the literature — and in some cases, in real-world applications as well.

Nominations in all subfields of AI were sought from a wide range of senior AI researchers. A short list of top candidates was voted on by the award committee, and then the decisions were finalized with the entire advisory and editorial boards of IEEE Intelligent Systems. I would like to take this opportunity to thank two past editors-in-chief of IEEE Intelligent Systems, Jim Hendler and Fei-Yue Wang, who served as the co-chairs of the AI's 10 to Watch award committee and did a great job managing the nomination and selection process.

The group nominated this year was particularly strong. It has been a struggle to choose the best of the best. In the end, the top 10 surfaced with unanimous support from the advisory and editorial boards. We're particularly pleased about the diversity of the winning group. It's safe to say that everyone involved in the selection process has been very proud of these young stars' contributions, of what AI as a community can offer, and how bright the future of AI can be. We're sure that young AI students and researchers will find inspiration from these young stars, and that the AI community will look forward to their continued excellence and sustained impact. Congratulations again to our young colleagues for winning this special recognition!

— Daniel Zeng
