Is memory needed in a digital age? - BBC News

Is memory needed in a digital age? - BBC News | shubush augment | Scoop.it
How many of your family or friends' phone numbers can you remember off the top of your head?

I only ask because increasingly we all rely on our electronic devices to remember such information for us.

But when the idea of allowing students to use search engines in exams was suggested recently, the immediate fear was "dumbing down".

Only a few years ago, there was a similar debate about the use of calculators.

For the 11-year-olds sitting their national curriculum tests, often known as Sats, in England this week, the emphasis is on mental arithmetic.

Calculators are no longer permitted.

Their use will also be limited in the new GCSE maths exams, for which students will start studying this autumn.
No dictionaries

Dictionaries have had a similarly chequered track record in foreign language exams.

They were banned 15 years ago, after research suggested they gave the brightest students a greater advantage.

Newly redrafted GCSEs in French, Spanish and German will be introduced in 2016.

Nanotube film could replace defective retinas

Nanotube film could replace defective retinas | shubush augment | Scoop.it
“ A promising new study suggests that a wireless, light-sensitive, and flexible film could potentially form part of a prosthetic device to replace damaged or defective retinas. The film both absorbs light and stimulates neurons without being connected to any wires or external power sources, standing it apart from silicon-based devices used for the same purpose. It has so far been tested only on light-insensitive retinas from embryonic chicks, but the researchers hope to see the pioneering work soon reach real-world human application. Some neurons are genetically-predisposed to be sensitive to light. An emerging field called optogenetics uses light to stimulate and control those neurons, with applications not only in vision but also in gene therapy, brain mapping, reducing pain sensitivity, treatment of neurological disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson's disease, and even mind control. ”The researchers sought to develop an optogenetics approach to restoring vision. They combined semiconductor nanorods and carbon nanotube film and found that the resultant system stimulated neurons in light-insensitive embryonic chicks at day 14 of their development when illuminated with violet light for 100 ms.

A softer, gentler robot controlled by light | KurzweilAI

A bio-inspired prototype “soft robot” material with greater dexterity and mobility than conventional hard robots has been created by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering.

“In biology, directed movement involves some form of shape changes, such as the expansion and contraction of muscles,” said Anna C. Balazs, PhD, the Swanson School’s Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering. “So we asked whether we could mimic these basic interconnected functions in a synthetic system so that it could simultaneously change its shape and move.”
