Scientists are weaving human brain cells into microchips

Scientists are weaving human brain cells into microchips

It’s not unusual for artificial intelligence developers to take inspiration from the human brain when designing their algorithms or the circuitry they run on, but now a project is taking that biological inspiration a step further. Scientists from England’s Aston University are physically integrating human brain stem cells into AI microchips, according to a university press release. The goal, the scientists say, is to push the boundaries of what AI can do by borrowing some of the human brain’s processing capabilities. Neural Boost The project, dubbed Neu-ChiP, sounds like the beginning of...

The Deepwater Horizon spill created horrific mutant creatures

The Deepwater Horizon spill created horrific mutant creatures

6,000 feet below sea level at the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the seafloor remains all-but-lifeless — an eerie, oil-coated wasteland populated largely by tumor-laden nightmare crustaceans.Video footage from a 2017 expedition is now surfacing, . The hellish glimpse of the seafloor confirms scientists’ worst suspicions: The Gulf of Mexico is still from the catastrophic 2010 oil spill — and the area may even have suffered permanent devastation.The expedition, published last month in the journal Royal Society Open Science, revealed that the spill site remains devoid of life....

Scientists Create a Prototype 'Air Plasma' Engine That Works Without Fossil Fuels

Scientists Create a Prototype 'Air Plasma' Engine That Works Without Fossil Fuels

A prototype jet engine can propel itself without using any fossil fuels, potentially paving the way for carbon-neutral air travel.The device compresses air and ionizes it with microwaves, generating plasma that thrusts it forward, published Tuesday in the journal AIP Advances. That means planes may someday fly using just electricity and the air around them as fuel. There's a long way to go between a proof-of-concept prototype and in a real plane. But the prototype was able to launch a one-kilogram (2.2-pound) steel ball 24 millimeters (almost one inch) into the air. That's the same thrust,...
