broad groupRB2015: Molecular Networks that Lead to Cognitive Decline and Alzheimer’s Disease: Philip De Jager

Neurologist Philip De Jager took us through the challenge of identifying novel targets in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and age-related cognitive decline, understanding the structure of the AD population and understanding each individual’s location along the trajectory leading to AD. Using …

broad groupSR72 hypersonic spy drone could be flying by 2030

The SR-72 will travel at six times the speed of sound—the fastest military jet ever made—and fly as high as 80,000 feet. The SR-72,will evade assault, take spy photos, and attack targets at speeds of up to Mach 6. That’s …

broad groupRussian third generation Armata Tank Specfications

The US Army’s Foreign Military Studies Office has a graphic from the Kremlin Tass translated with specifications of the third generation Russian Armata tank. Large-scale deliveries of the new tanks and infantry vehicles are possible in 2017-2018. The advanced T-14 …

broad groupIron superconductor has a critical temperature above liquid nitrogen

A single layer film of an Iron superconductor has a critical temperature above liquid nitrogen. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors are far cheaper to operate than those that require lower temperatures. Recent experiments on ​FeSe films grown on ​SrTiO3 (​STO) suggest …

Dr. Michael McKubre is Director of the Energy Research Center of the Materials Research Laboratory at SRI International. He provides an analysis of the recent third party month long study of the energy catalyzer. On the whole encouraged. Considerably …

broad groupBaidu hires Google Andrew Ng and plans to compete with Deep Learning Artificial Intelligence and have built a $20000 simulated brain with one billion connections

Andrew Ng is the newly appointed chief scientist at Baidu, China’s dominant search company. He has plans to advance deep learning, a powerful new approach to artificial intelligence loosely modeled on the way the brain works. It has already made …

broad groupMicro Chiplets are accurately placed four at a time but in few years it could be millions or billions

PARC’s technique of mincing chips into printer ink could revolutionize the way electronics are made. Researchers at PARC, in Palo Alto, California, envision doing something different with the wafers: chopping them up into hairs-width “chiplets,” mixing them into an …

broad groupEven with quantum communication and encryption can secrets be kept secret ?

Quantum communications could soon allow secure communications that is faster and more convenient than one time pads. Physicists have demonstrated the distribution of three entangled photons at three different locations (Alice, Bob and Charlie) several hundreds of meters apart, proving …

air pollutionUnlimited heat conduction in graphene

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz and the National University of Singapore have attested that the thermal conductivity of graphene diverges with the size of the samples. This discovery challenges the fundamental laws of …
