British spies are developing an offensive cyber capability to attack terrorists, hackers and rogue states, finance minister George Osborne said on Tuesday (17 November) after warning that Islamic State (Isis) militants wanted to launch deadly cyber-attacks of their own. Osborne said IS fighters were trying to develop the ability to attack Britains infrastructure such as


Will the World’s Strangest Reactor Save Fusion?

If you’ve heard of fusion energy, you’ve probably heard of tokamaks. These doughnut-shaped devices are meant to cage ionized gases called plasmas in magnetic fields while heating them to the outlandish temperatures needed for hydrogen nuclei to fuse. Tokamaks are the workhorses of fusion—solid, symmetrical, and relatively straightforward to engineer—but progress with them has


Drone Piloting Schools Opening Across China


New aviation schools are opening across China to meet a growing demand for commercial pilots to fly small, remote-controlled aircraft, or drones.

It is estimated the country’s maintenance, mapping, filming and agricultural industries will need more than 10,000 drone pilots this year.

There are currently less than 1,000 people licensed to

A Dry Run to Save Earth?


Scientists are preparing to send two spacecraft to knock an asteroid off course, as part of a practice for what they would do if a rock was threatening the future of humanity.

DOJ Issues New Guidelines for Cell Phone Snooping

Stingray Cell Snooper

The DOJ has issued new guidelines governing stingray use that bring such deployments into marginally better alignment with fundamental civil rights — but there are some significant limitations to the new policies as well.

First, the good news: The new recommendations specifically state that these devices are to be used in


An Interesting Yet Disturbing Progression in Artificial Intelligence

Androids are being developed that have an uncanny resemblance to people. A pinnacle example is an android crafted by roboticist David Hanson that resembles the famous and deceased science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. What makes android Dick so remarkable isn’t so much his appearance as it is his ability to hold an intelligent conversation.


A Computer Algorithm can now Accurately (100%) Predict if you will Develop Psychosis

A new study finds an algorithmic word analysis is flawless at determining whether a person will have a psychotic episode. Although the language of thinking is deliberate—let me think, I have to do some thinking—the actual experience of having thoughts is often passive. Ideas pop up like dandelions; thoughts occur suddenly and escape


Current State of Cryogenic Sleep

Lost in Space

Long-term cryogenic sleep or hibernation may be useful for space travel. But with NASA backing out of the project, earthbound applications may be more likely.

The Artificial Leaf?


Melbourne researchers say it may only be a matter of years before the artificial leaf is fueling every community, house and car on the planet.

The machine they have designed relies on a so-far largely untapped fuel source — hydrogen — and draws heavily on the plant process of photosynthesis, in which


China Rolls Out Humanless Factory

The gravest fear that has rippled through humanity from the technology industry is that, someday, almost all of our jobs will be replaced by robots.

While that fear is often laughed off as something that will only happen far into the future, the truth is that it’s actually happening right now.

Neuroscientists have introduced a new paradigm for brain-machine interfaces that investigates the physiological properties and adaptability of brain circuits, and how the brains of two or more animals can work together to complete simple tasks. These brain networks, or Brainets, were developed in rodents and primates.Share:
