Stephen Hawking - Time Traveller's Party

Stephen Hawking hosts a party for future time travelers. 

Simon Nicholson's insight:

This is pretty damn funny ...and clever. Hawking just proved that time travel is not possible. How? he threw a party and only ssent the invites out afterwards. His point being, if somewhere in the distant future, somebody figured time travel out, they could have shown up. but maybe the invite just never made it that far...?

Google Turning Its Lucrative Web Search Over to AI Machines

Google Turning Its Lucrative Web Search Over to AI Machines | It's A Rad World | Scoop.it
When Google-parent Alphabet Inc. reported eye-popping earnings last week its executives couldn’t stop talking up the company’s investments in machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Simon Nicholson's insight:

It's happening at a rate faster than we can actually comprehend. Machines are capable of deep learning already, and like this new brain Google just built , achieving better results than humans... imagine when we start asking it the right questions, like how do we solve our financial crisis, or solve world hunger...

Quantum Superposition State

Simon Nicholson's insight:

Yes, you read that correctly, scientists are attempting to achieve teleportation, cloning or perhaps prove the existence of parallel dimensions. One object in two different places, at the same time. Observed already in quantum physics, now they are trying to do it with large living organisms , like bacteria... hold on tight, shit is getting weird.

Bobby Martinez is still here.

Simon Nicholson's insight:

I love this guy. He gets a heavy rap from the media, but if you have ever met him he is by far one of the most humble, down to earth people with that much talent. He is every bit a world champion talent and could pull off a comeback of Occy proportions if he wanted too. Beyond that, this was one of the coolest articles I've seen in a long time!, beautiful layout and imagery, with a rad little video edit. Worth the distraction.

Can we create new senses for humans?

Can we create new senses for humans? | It's A Rad World | Scoop.it

As humans, we can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. “Our experience of reality,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman, “is constrained by our biology.” He wants to change that. His research into our brain processes has led him to create new interfaces -- such as a sensory vest -- to take in previously unseen information about the world around us.

Simon Nicholson's insight:

Wow humans are clever little things...  research into our brain processes has led us to create new interfaces -- such as this sensory vest -- to take in previously unseen information about the world around us. Such a great watch!
