In the emerging technology diversion department, here's a cool video from 60 Minutes. Andrew Schwartz, a neuroscientist at the University of Pittsburg, has implanted a grid of electrodes inside a monkey's brain in order to listen to the different brain cells (or neurons) in an attempt to decode the language of the brain.
Japan is the place to be if you’re looking for the bandwidth to tackle future technologies – things like HD video streaming, visual networking and large file-sharing, according to a study by researchers from the Said Business School at the University of Oxford and the University of Oviedo's Department of Applied Economics.The researchers looked at 42 countries to understand how prepared each nation was for future Web technologies.
My video of Lawrence Lessig, a law professor at Stanford University talking about an "iPatriot Act" has received a lot of views thanks to a post on the top blog site Boing Boing. Lawrence Lessig on the coming "i-Patriot Act" - Boing BoingI've taken out an extract of the relevant part of the video, here is a 3 minute section: http://video.
An online video start-up launched by three Australian entrepreneurs (including, apparently, an old acquaintance of mine from university) has been bought by Google subsidiary YouTube for a reported US$15 million.
Some kids prefer video games and computer programming to sports and nature, and the ID Tech Camps were created with that set in mind. CNET's Kara Tsuboi drops in on a summer session at Stanford University to watch these future tech masterminds hard at work on their summer vacations.
MercoPress, a news agency based in Uruguay, reports that German engineers are using an aquatic robot able to work 6,000 meters below sea level. This remotely operated vehicle (ROV), dubbed Kiel-6000, is operated by the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences from the University of Kiel. The robot weighs 3.5 tons on the ground and it is 3.5 meters long and 1.9 meter wide, with a height of 2.4 meters. With its video cameras, it can transmit images to a mother vessel via a 6.5 kilometer-long fiber glass cable. According to the project leader, Kiel-6000 'will have access to 95% of the entire world's sea beds.' But read more...
Japanese scientists from Keio University have found that pigeons have self-cognitive abilities higher than 3-year-old humans. They have 'trained pigeons to discriminate real-time self-image using mirrors as well as videotaped self-image, and proved that pigeons can recognize video images that reflect their movements as self-image.' Until recently, it was widely admitted that only humans and primates such as chimpanzees could recognize images of themselves. Now, researchers have found that dolphins or elephants also could do it. But these Japanese scientists have proven that pigeons also were able to do it -- and even discriminate paintings of Van Gogh from Chagall. But read more...
The St. Petersburg Times, Florida, reports that a well-known robot designer, Robin Murphy, a professor of computer science and engineering at the University of South Florida (USF), 'plans to add a heart to robot rescuers.' As says USF, the goal is to develop 'a robot that will be a companion to a person who may be trapped after a car crash or in building ruins following an earthquake, or someone pinned down by sniper fire.' As said Murphy, 'robots can provide not only a sense of being a 'buddy' by playing soothing music or providing other entertainment, the robot also can be the audio and video link between survivor and family.' Murphy will develop this robot with some money coming from Microsoft. But read more...
Computer scientists at the University of California in San Diego (UCSD) have developed a fog and smoke machine for computer graphics which dramatically cuts computing costs for generating bright images. They've used 'photon mapping' algorithms, a subset of the more computationally intensive ray tracing algorithms -- and with better results. This could lead to better computer graphics for movies and video games. Now, the researchers are adapting their algorithms to render other materials, such as skin, milk and plants which behave more or less like fog or smoke. But read more...
After seeing the above video sent to me by Justin James, I only have one thing to say: Give Jonny his PhD! Johnny Lee is a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University who took a standard Nintendo Wii remote and turned a monitor in to something special.
In November 2007, the American Physical Society (APS) launched the Nano Bowl video contest. You have to make a video that demonstrates some aspect of physics in [American] football and send them your movie. The winner will receive the smallest trophy ever made and $1,000 in cash. This 'nanotrophy' has been created at Cornell University in the Cornell NanoScale Facility (CNF). It has been built 'around a silicon chip on which, like Russian nesting dolls, football fields nest inside one another, the largest about 12 millimeters long and the smallest only 2 microns long.' In case you're interested, you still can submit your video until February 3, 2008 (Super Bowl Sunday). But read more...
