Super Intelligent Ethics

Ethics is an analysis of the best course of action, of what is most right. Morals are general rules derived from our experience with ethical analysis. The following video suggests that we need to “translate ethics into a set of correct unambiguous rules” and also suggests that is not possible. Think about how we humans […]

Python Programming for a RNN

Recurrent Neural Networks Tutorial, Part 1 – Introduction to RNNs – [wildml.com] Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) are popular models that have shown great promise in many NLP tasks. But despite their recent popularity I’ve only found a limited number of resources that throughly explain how RNNs work, and how to implement them. That’s what this […]

Recurrent Neural Networks

Neural network software uses layers of computational cells that supply feedback across the layers to adjust coefficient values and “train” the network to provide a desired result. Once the network has been trained, it can be supplied input data that is not predetermined and it will output a result that offers some form of analysis […]

Integrating Architecture With Construction

3D printing is being used for the construction of just about everything, from human organ tissues to buildings. Current building construction that uses 3D printing simply mimics older construction techniques using the new tools. We are just now beginning to create new techniques that were not possible or practical previously. The video below mentions the […]

A Mathematician Who Wants To Get You Laid

Clio Cresswell is a mathematician who believes in using math in her everyday life. She’s also good looking. Mathematics and sex | Clio Cresswell | TEDxSydney – [youtube.com] Mathematics and sex are deeply intertwined. From using mathematics to reveal patterns in our sex lives, to using sex to prime our brain for certain types of […]

3D Printing a House in 24 Hours

A mobile 3D printer has been used to fabricate the walls and partitions for a small (400 sq. ft.) house in 24 hours. Apis Cor: first residential house has been printed! – [youtube.com] Apis Cor company has successfully finished the residential house printing project, which was announced in December 2016.The developer of the unique equipment, […]

Superfluids Can Become Supersolids

When the isotopes Helium-3 and Helium-4 are cooled to extremely low temperatures, they become liquid and exhibit superfluid properties. This means they have a viscosity near zero and can flow without losing kinetic energy. A vortex created while a fluid is in this state will continue to rotate without dissipating. Under low temperatures and pressures, […]

Adapting Earth Skills to Space

As we migrate out into space, many of our jobs and their attending skills will need to change. Some skills that have been needed on Earth may dissipate and new ones will need to be cultivated for the space environment. Changes in gravity and atmosphere will be among the driving factors. OUTDOOR VS INDOOR Skills […]

Shaping Sound With Metamaterials

Metamaterials have the ability to create an effect based on their structure. Most metamaterials in recent news have involved optical or electrical effects. Researchers at the Universities of Sussex and Bristol have invented metamaterials that bend, shape, and focus sound. This has potential applications in medical imaging, sonar, haptics, and personal audio. Metamaterial bricks and […]

Fiber Reinforced Hydrogel Fabric

Hydrogels are made from long chemical chains called polymers that have an ability to absorb a lot of water, often forming a stretchy, rubbery, colloid like substance. Hydrogels often change their structure in reaction to changes in PH (acid/base), temperature, or salt content. They are being used in tissue scaffolds, wound bandaging, diapers, contact lenses, […]
