Scientists predict human thought in real time, nearly every time

Neuroscientists from the University of Washington have decoded brain signals in real-time and with astounding accuracy, as revealed in a recent study published in <i>PLOS Computational Biology</i>. Researchers attached electrodes to the temporal lobes of seven epilepsy patients for roughly one week -- the …

NASA Rover Designed To Last 90 Days Celebrates 12 Year Anniversary

This week NASA’s Mars Opportunity rover celebrated its 12 year anniversary on the red planet. What’s truly remarkable about this is the fact that the rover was only designed to operate for about 90 days.<p>Due to helpful unforeseen surface conditions and few creative software changes, NASA has been …

More evidence emerges for 'transmissible Alzheimer's' theory

Autopsies reveal plaques in the brains of people who died after receiving grafts from cadavers.<p>For the second time in four months, researchers have …

A drone that can fly, float and dive underwater

In the future, there will be no escape from robotic observation. Proof (if proof were needed) comes in the form of Loon Copter, a drone developed by Oakland University's Embedded Systems Research Laboratory that can not only fly, but also land on and even navigate <i>under</i> the water's surface. The Loon …

Scientists make a 'true' neural network using brain-like chips

Many people have built brain-like neural networks that can learn on their own, but they're typically using plain old silicon to do it. Wouldn't it be better if the chips themselves were brain-like? A mix of Italian and Russian researchers might help. They've created a neural network based on …
