artificial intelligenceOptical Neural Network Demo Chip

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have made a silicon chip that distributes optical signals precisely across a miniature brain-like grid, showcasing a potential new design for neural networks. Above – NIST’s grid-on-a-chip distributes light signals …

artificial intelligenceAI finds possible gravitational lens points

When a galaxy is hidden behind another galaxy, we can sometimes see the hidden one around the front system. This phenomenon is called a gravitational lens, because it emerges from Einstein’s general relativity theory which says that mass can bend …

artificial intelligenceCasimir forces measured between silicon nanostructures

Casimir forces are of fundamental interest because they originate from quantum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field. Apart from controlling this force via the optical properties of materials a number of novel geometries have been proposed to generate repulsive and/or non-monotonic …

adiabatic quantum computer$200,000 Kickstarter to improve Antimatter sail propulsion design and testing to ultimately achieve 10% of lightspeed

A team previously funded by NASA, are continuing the design and testing of an antimatter thruster capable of reaching 10% lightspeed. In 2002 they were funded by the NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts to perform preliminary work on an antimatter-based …
