Quantum processor for single photons

Scientists have realized a photon-photon logic gate via a deterministic interaction with a strongly coupled atom-resonator system. “Nothing is impossible!” In line with this motto, physicists from the Quantum Dynamics Division of Professor Gerhard Rempe (director at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) managed to realise a quantum logic gate in which two light quanta are the main actors. The difficulty of such an endeavour is that photons usually do not interact at all but pass each other undisturbed. This makes them ideal for the transmission of quantum information,…

10 Ways Virtual Reality Is Revolutionizing Medicine and Healthcare

When people experience virtual reality for the first time, a common reaction is to start imagining all the different uses the technology might hold. Even within one industry, healthcare, the potential is open-ended. The good thing is that scientists and medical professionals have been at the drawing board for years now, developing and implementing virtual reality in ways that can help them train, diagnose, and treat in myriad situations. Here are just ten of the use cases that are currently in practice and continually developing as the technology itself develops…

3D Bioprinting

In the field of medical science, technology is flourishing. With the development, more lives are saved, and we are now reaching the period of bombarding innovations. Cancer will eventually be cured, heart diseases are no longer a treat, and damaging flus are not a topic that come into our mind. One of the technology innovations is 3D bio-printing. Every year, hundreds and thousands of people are in the list of waiting for the donations of organs, like kidneys, hearts, and livers. However, the lack of donors is a severe problem…

Machine Learning for Text Classification

Machine Learning for Text Classification Machine learning can used to classified different category of texts, by using various classifiers. The common machine learning classifiers are support vector machine, Naive Bayes and even ensemble models, such as stochastic gradient descent. Besides, deep learning neural network is also a choice for the text classification. Those classifiers and neural network enable us to category the text and even to find the author for the specific text. The general idea is that we input the text of specific category or author, and then we…

AI

As our investment in technology is increasing, our world is updated by new technologies that benefit our daily life. In some countries, robots are beginning to deliver food and services, work in factories, and do things that human cannot do. Soon, we may see human-like robots talking to humans as if they have real brains and intellectual ability, or mimicking our facial impressions as if they have real feelings of satisfaction and anger. AI is on its way to our life. AI is short for Artificial Intelligence, which is defined…

Tiny ‘Atomic Memory’ Device Could Store All Books Ever Written

A new “atomic memory” device that encodes data atom by atom can store hundreds of times more data than current hard disks can, a new study finds. “You would need just the area of a postage stamp to write out all books ever written,” said study senior author Sander Otte, a physicist at the Delft University of Technology’s Kavli Institute of Nanoscience in the Netherlands. In fact, the researchers estimated that if they created a cube 100 microns wide — about the same diameter as the average human hair —…

SOCIETY’S TOUGHEST REALITIES GO VIRTUAL: EXPLORING ACTIVISM THROUGH VR AT TRIBECA 2016

Virtual reality is creating new opportunities across the media landscape, not only for film directors but also journalists, activists, and multimedia artists. Its creators are often all three—they’re ambitious storytellers who aren’t afraid to cross media borders and test the possibilities of the latest technologies. For its Storyscapes competition and Virtual Arcade, the Tribeca Film Festival will return to the Tribeca Festival Hub, a multimedia destination where the public can experience the newest experiments in digital creation and the vast potential for immersive media experiences. Four of the projects included in this year’s innovative…

Nvidia’s eye-tracking system blurs the lines for more immersive VR environments

The human eye can only focus on one surprisingly small area at a time, while our peripheral vision gives us the general gist of what else is nearby. That means a lot of processing power that goes into fully rendering virtual reality environments in focus is wasted when you’re only really taking in a small area of the screen at any given time. Nvidia has developed a rendering technique that allows that wasted processing power to be redirected to allow developers to create more immersive VR environments. The technique, called…

Facebook to position internet beaming satellite over Africa next year

Facebook is set to take its worldwide internet project to new heights, all the way to geostationary orbit, to be specific. The social media giant has announced a new partnership with French firm Eutelsat, with plans to launch a satellite into space next year in hope of bringing millions of people in Sub-Saharan Africa online. The satellite is already under construction. Being built by Israeli firm Spacecom, the AMOS-6 satellite is designed to address the gaps in internet access throughout West, East and Southern Africa that cannot be filled by…
