The atmosphere is literally changing the food we eat, for the worse. And almost nobody is paying attention. Irakli Loladze is a mathematician by training, but he was in a biology lab when he encountered
MIT and Google researchers have made AI that can link sound, sight, and text to understand the world
If we ever want future robots to do our bidding, they’ll have to understand the world around them in a complete way—if a robot hears a barking noise, what’s making it? What does a dog look like, and what
U.S. regulators Friday approved the first drug to reduce nighttime trips to the bathroom. The treatment is a nasal spray intended for adults who wake up at least twice a night to urinate. The Food and
Last week I wrote about how science infuses science fiction in the Syfy network series The Expanse. Now comes a story about how the researchers at MIT’s CSAIL (Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence
On Jeremy Fielding’s YouTube channel, he runs through five work-a-day shop tools that he made himself. These stands, filters, jigs and guides save time, space, and make the work go easier and safer. Here
Jon Zornow, the founder of Sewbo, made waves in September after announcing that he had built the first robot to sew a t-shirt without human intervention. Using a robot arm and an automatic sewing machine,
