“The human brain is neurologically advanced and exploits connectivity that is controlled by electrical and chemical signals. My research will create nanowire networks that have the potential to mimic aspects of the neurological functions of the human brain, which may revolutionize the performance of current day computers. It could be truly ground-breaking.”
‘Adaptnetic Structures’ (Adaptive Magnetic Structures) is a prototype that seeks to imagine a future where nanotechnology and materials research has given rise to sophisticated programmable matter, capable of changing its physical properties based on some kind of internal programming. The emerging scientific field of ‘claytronics’ is an example of modern day research in this area.
Eddie Germino interviews J Storrs Hall on nanotech, AI and the Singularity.
FEI announced that María Carbajo of the Electron Microscopy Unit in the Research Support Services of the University of Extremadura has been awarded the grand prize in the 2012 FEI Owner Image Contest for her entry “Spider Skin”.
At the Photonics West conference taking place in San Francisco this week, Nanoscribe GmbH, a spin-off of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), presented the world’s fastest 3D printer of micro- and nanostructures.
Some exciting upcoming events in Aukland New Zealand
The 12th annual International Nanotechnology Symposium starts January 30, 2013 and runs through February 1, 2013 in Tokyo Japan.
Valkyrie Ice thinks her gig as a waitress is doomed and wants you to help her start a new business…printing out custom designer bodies and body parts.
The question of boosting the intelligence of animals other than humans, to the level of self-awareness and consciousness, is one that cannot be considered in isolation from the general process at work in the social and speculative movement known as Transhumanism.
