Infoporn: 100 Years of Sci-Fi, Explored
Using data scraping, network analysis, and machine learning, the Science Fiction Concept Corpus includes more than 2,600 books written since 1900.
Man, this is so stupid.
$190 Million in Crypto Gone Forever after QuadrigaCX's CEO dies. Sheez.
I believe that AI will ultimately become self aware, although not in the way we imagine (not in the same way as our brain implements consciousness)
Gum disease–causing bacteria could spur Alzheimer’s Disease.
the bacteria that cause gum disease are present in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s, not just in their mouths.
Machine learning leads mathematicians to unsolvable problem
Simple artificial-intelligence problem puts researchers up against a logical paradox discovered by famed mathematician Kurt Gödel.
Big Crowds Flow Like Water in Amazing (and Terrifying) Ways
Hydrodynamic theory helps to explain how large human crowds flow like water.
And this is why I love #scifi.
Early Predictions of the Internet Date Back to 19th Century #Sci-Fi
Science fiction writers are professional future-dreamers, imagining worlds far beyond their own. With technology advancing at astronomical rates, real life feels more and more like sci-fi every day (for better or worse). So it’s fun to look back at those writers who, decades and even centuries ago, imagined what life would be like now—and some of their predictions were surprisingly accurate.
Potential #scifi books to add to my reading list for 2019
#ScienceFiction predictions, right and wrong, about 2019
The future is now. Back in the early '80s, we were wondering what the distant future had in store, what it would be like. Well, that #future -- 2019 -- is almost here.
I guess Earth has a 'backup' life just in case the surface dwellers are stupid enough to destroy themselves. ;)
Scientists Reveal a Massive Biosphere of Life Hidden Under Earth's Surface
Earth is teeming with an incredibly vast biosphere of subterranean lifeforms.
Well this is a breath of fresh air!
Better Worlds: a science fiction project about hope.
Bringing balance to the universe: New theory could explain missing 95 percent of the cosmos
Scientists at the University of Oxford may have solved one of the biggest questions in modern physics, with a new paper unifying #darkmatter and #darkenergy into a single phenomenon: a fluid which possesses 'negative mass." If you were to push a negative mass, it would accelerate towards you. This astonishing new theory may also prove right a prediction that Einstein made 100 years ago.
Glove gives robot hands a sense of touch
Stanford researchers have developed an electronic glove that bestows robotic hands with some of the manual dexterity humans enjoy.
