  14. 14. Computer Passes Turing Test for First Time Eugene Goostman seems like a typical 13-year-old Ukrainian boy, at least that's what a third of judges at a Turing Test competition thought recently. Goostman says that he likes hamburgers and candy and that his father is a gynecologist, but it's all a lie. This boy is a program created by computer engineers led by Russian Vladimir Veselov and Ukrainian Eugene Demchenko. That a third of judges were convinced that Goostman was a human in unrestricted conversation is significant as at least 30 percent of judges must be swayed for a computer to pass the famous Turing Test. The test, created by legendary computer scientist Alan Turing in 1950, was designed to answer the question "Can machines think?" and is a well-known staple of artificial intelligence studies. Source: The Verge 6/14
  15. 15. Stanford bioengineers have developed faster, more energy-efficient microchips based on the human brain, 9,000 times faster and using significantly less power than a typical PC. This offers greater possibilities for advances in robotics and a new way of understanding the brain. For instance, a chip as fast and efficient as the human brain could drive prosthetic limbs with the speed and complexity of our own actions. It can simulate one million neurons and billions of synaptic connections. Boahen is working with other Stanford scientists to develop prosthetic limbs that would be controlled by a Neurogrid-like chip. Boahen and his team have developed Neurogrid, a circuit board consisting of 16 custom-designed "Neurocore" chips. Together these 16 chips can simulate 1 million neurons and billions of synaptic connections. The team designed these chips with power efficiency in mind. Their strategy was to enable certain synapses to share hardware circuits. The result was Neurogrid – a device about the size of an iPad that can simulate orders of magnitude more neurons and synapses than other brain mimics on the power it takes to run a tablet computer. Qualcomm could add a “neural processing unit” to mobile-phone chips to handle sensory data and tasks such as image recognition. http://www.stanford.edu/group/brainsinsilicon/ Neurogrid Microchips for Neuromorphic Research

  21. 21. Hugh Herr, who heads the Biomechatronics research group at the MIT Media Lab, is creating bionic limbs that emulate the function of natural limbs marrying human physiology with electromechanics. A double amputee himself, he is responsible for breakthrough advances in bionic limbs that provide greater mobility and new hope to those with physical disabilities. Herr’s research group has developed gait-adaptive knee prostheses for transfemoral amputees and variable impedance ankle-foot exoskeletons for patients suffering from drop foot, a gait pathology caused by stroke, cerebral palsy, and multiple sclerosis. He has also designed his own bionic legs, the world’s first bionic foot and calf system called the BiOM.

  22. 22. Bionic Arm Created by DEKA Research for DARPA The DEKA Arm System or "Luke Arm" is one of the most advanced robotic prostheses ever built. This is the first prosthetic arm approved by the FDA that "translates signals from a person's muscles to perform complex tasks." The DEKA Arm was created by famed inventor Dean Kamen and his team at DEKA Research and Development Corp. as part of DARPA's Revolutionizing Prosthetics program. The goal of the US $100 million program was developing an advanced prosthetic arm with near-natural control to improve quality of life for amputees. DARPA funded two groups: the DEKA project and another effort led by researchers at Johns Hopkins University.

  24. 24. Four individuals diagnosed as having complete paralysis of the legs were able to intentionally move their knees, ankles, and toes while undergoing electrical stimulation of the spinal cord, according to a study recently published in the journal Brain. The novel therapy has the potential to change the grim prognosis of people who have been paralyzed for years, say the researchers involved in the study based out of the University of Louisville Frazier Rehab Institute in Kentucky. The research is a continuation of a 2011 groundbreaking pilot trial that demonstrated that electrically stimulating the spinal cord in precise ways enabled a man paralyzed below his chest to stand independently for minutes at a time. The announcement of that pilot trial was incredibly exciting, but scientists wondered if it could be repeated with other individuals. The new paper reveals that the therapy has been successful in four people, and that it can enable not only independent standing, but also other kinds of voluntary leg and foot movement.

  25. 25. Liquid Metal Reconnects Severed Nerves in Frogs Severed nerves in the body can lead to the loss of muscle function and muscle atrophy, unless the severed nerve endings get reconnected. One possible new solution devised by Chinese researchers uses liquid metal to create an electrical conduit capable of transmitting signals between the severed nerve ends. The liquid metal solution consists of a gallium-indium-tin (GaInSn) alloy that has successfully bridged severed sciatic nerves taken from the calf muscles of bullfrogs, according to Technology Review. A team at Tsinghua University in Beijing showed that the metal alloy, capable of remaining liquid at body temperature and thought to be benign, could transmit nerve signals much more effectively than the commonly-used Ringer's solution meant to mimic the salt mixture in body fluids.

  33. 33. The first known human climbing of a glass wall using gecko-inspired climbing devices has been demonstrated by DARPA’s Z-Man program. A 218-pound climber ascended and descended 25 feet of glass with no climbing equipment other than a pair of hand-held, gecko-inspired paddles (he also carried an additional 50-pound load in one trial). A gecko is able to climb on glass by using van der Waals intermolecular forces between the spatulae (nanoscale hairs), resulting in easy attachment and removal of the gecko’s toes from the surface. To enable gecko-like dynamic climbing at human scale, engineers at Draper Laboratory of Cambridge, Mass. created climbing paddles capable of balancing adhesive forces in both the shear (parallel to the vertical surface) and normal (perpendicular to the vertical surface) directions.

Controlling the board is easy, simply lean forward when you want to accelerate and lean back to slow down or stop. Learning how to use the board only takes a couple of minutes and people with experience in boardsports are ready to aggressively ride almost as soon as they jump on the board. The reason this board is so easy use is because of the self-balancing technology. Solid-state MEMS and algorithms balance the board around the wheel. The board uses a 500W brushless hub motor and the wheel is the only moving part -- so there are no gears, belts, or chains to maintain. The Onewheel can go up to 12 mpg and on a single charge and can ride for four to six miles (depending on speed and terrain). Recharging the 48V lithium iron phosphate battery is quick with the ultra charger, only 20 minutes. With a standard charger it will take about an hour. Source Onewheel/Design News 1/14

  93. 93. Designer Greg Brown and engineer Dave Fawcett are finessing a design for a jet- propelled car that can reach speeds up to 550 miles in the air, but then converts into a zero-emissions electric car on the ground. Over the last few years flying cars like the Terrafugia Transistion and the Skylys have provided a realistic glimpse into the future of flying cars. The idea of a jet-propelled flying car has been missing, but the GF7 could bridge that divide if it comes to life. On the ground the GF7 drives like a standard car with its four wheels and wings folded up. It can reach speeds up to 100 mph and the 50 kWh battery pack has a range that’s on par with electric vehicles at between 80-120 miles. Upon take off the wheels retract into the fuselage and the wings fold down with a wing span of 23 feet. The jet engine also recharges the battery pack during flight. Unlike the Terrafugia, the GF7 can fly at altitudes up to 38,000 feet high with a range of up to a thousand miles. Brown and Fawcett hope to have a flying prototype completed in four years. Unfortunately, the GF7 won’t be cheap with a price tag expected between $3-5 million, about the same as other small jet aircraft. http://inhabitat.com/gf7-flying-car-reaches-550-mph-in-the-air-then-turns-into-an-electric-car-on-the-ground/ GF7 Flying Car Reaches 550 MPH in the Air

At some point in the not too distant future, a moth will take flight in the hills of northern Pakistan, and flap towards a suspected terrorist training camp. But this will be no ordinary moth. Inside it will be a computer chip that was implanted when the creature was still a pupa, in the cocoon, meaning that the moth’s entire nervous system can be controlled remotely. The moth will thus be capable of landing in the camp without arousing suspicion, all the while beaming video and other information back to its masters via what its developers refer to as a “reliable tissue-machine interface.” The creation of insects whose flesh grows around computer parts – known from science fiction as ‘cyborgs’ – has been described as one of the most ambitious robotics projects ever conceived by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the research and development arm of the US Department of Defense.

The goal is to create small, inexpensive, smart robotic radio relay nodes that dismounted warfighters drop as they deploy in urban settings. The nodes then self-configure and form a mesh network, a temporary infrastructure that establishes communications over the region. As the situation changes, the nodes will adapt the network, such as self-healing if nodes are destroyed by the enemy. Through movement and density, the LANdroids will enable effective communications in complex non-line-of-sight (NLOS) environments like those found in urban settings, dealing with phenomena like fades and shadows through strategic self- placement and chaining of the relays. http://www.darpa.mil/ipto/solicit/open/BAA-07-46_PIP.pdf

Trakdot pairs up with your cellphone; once that's done, just pack it in your suitcase before checking your bag. Trakdot runs on 2 AA batteries (included) and is FAA compliant. It uses an onboard accelerometer to put itself to sleep while in transit, then wakes up upon arrival and sends a text or email to your cellphone letting you know it's arrived.

  122. 122. LEDs can be engineered to produce practically any desired spectrum of visible light. Blue or violet LEDs pump mixes of phosphors, which down-convert some of the light and mix with the pump color to produce something humans perceive as white light. Near-monochrome LEDs, whose spectrum amounts to a single sharp peak, can be mixed at varying intensities to produce light of any apparent color in a wide gamut. Hue is controlled over WiFi. The bulbs and router talk amongst themselves using a wireless mesh network protocol called ZigBee, IEEE 802.15.4. Source: Phillips (http://meethue.com/en-us/)

Unlike a conventional camera, which records light from a single focal point, a light-field camera captures light from all directions. A user can later change the focus to a new area of the image or even make it stereoscopic. In the past, light-field photography required supercomputers. The Lytro makes this technology accessible to casual shooters. Source: Popular Mechanics 10/12 Lytro Camera

  161. 161. Digital Life in 2025 - Less-Hopeful Theses • Dangerous divides between haves and have-nots may expand, resulting in resentment and possible violence. • Abuses and abusers will ‘evolve and scale.’ Human nature isn’t changing; there’s laziness, bullying, stalking, stupidity, pornography, dirty tricks, crime, and those who practice them have new capacity to make life miserable for others. • Pressured by these changes, governments and corporations will try to assert power and at times succeed as they invoke security and cultural norms. • People will continue sometimes grudgingly to make tradeoffs favoring convenience and perceived immediate gains over privacy; and privacy will be something only the upscale will enjoy. • Humans and their current organizations may not respond quickly enough to challenges presented by complex networks. • Most people are not yet noticing the profound changes today’s communications networks are already bringing about; these networks will be even more disruptive in the future. Advice: Make Good Choices Today • Foresight and accurate predictions can make a difference; ‘The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
