Researchers have mimicked the way the human brain processes information with the development of an electronic long-term memory cell, which mirrors the brain’s ability to simultaneously process and store multiple strands of information. The development brings them closer to imitating key electronic aspects of the human brain — a vital step toward creating a bionic brain and unlocking treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
#maketechhuman Jeff Hawkins recently re-read his 2004 book On Intelligence, where the founder of Palm computing – the company that gave us the first handheld computer and later, first-generation smartphones – explains how the human brain learns. An electrical engineer by training, Hawkins had taken a deep interest in how the brain works and founded…
(Phys.org)—A team of researchers working at the University of California (and one from Stony Brook University) has for the first time created a neural-network chip that was built using just memristors. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the team describes how they built their chip and ...
Dr. Lukas Wartman, MD By Dr. Lukas Wartman, MD I have the dubious distinction of being a famous cancer patient. I’m an oncologist who specializes in leukemia; I got leukemia; and I’m cured, at least for now, thanks to advances in genomic medicine...
Could sudden shifts in technology soon be coming over here and taking jobs?
"Last September, Dr Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne, two researchers at the Martin School in Oxford, published the results of a major study of the susceptibility of jobs to this new kind of automation. Their report, The Future of Employment: How Susceptible Are Jobs to Computerisation?, makes for a pretty sobering read. Frey and Osborne used machine-learning techniques to estimate the probability of computerisation for 702 detailed occupations, based on US government classifications of those occupations. Their conclusion? About 47% of total US employment is at risk from technologies now operational in laboratories and in the field."
(Phys.org)—Despite the many great achievements of computers, no man-made computer can learn from its environment, adapt to its surroundings, spontaneously self-organize, and solve complex problems that require these abilities as well as a biological brain. These abilities arise from the fact that ...
Facing ever-increasing global competition and a fight to control costs, Chinese assembly lines are implementing more and more robotic systems. The newest facilities being constructed are 'smart factories' with virtually no human labor.
As the Internet grows in importance, so do the risks inherent in the lack of regulation. There is a growing danger that the open platform we all cherish will increasingly be colonized by corporate greed, criminal activity, and conflict between states – with ordinary citizens the ultimate victims.
