Pluto Loves you more than the NFL

As we look at the last week of the New Horizons mission, I can assure you without a doubt that the $720 million dollars spent on this project was put to good use and has resulted in some amazing new information.

Scientists crack the code as to how modular design can evolve. A potential AI milestone?

Our computers, our cars, our societies, our bodies, our automobile traffic, our network traffic, our brains and even our own solar system – all modular by design. Smaller mechanisms to complete a larger function. Where did it come from? And the bigger question – how did it happen?   Jeff Clune [2], Hod Lipson [3],

Increased Physical Activity Confirmed Link to Cognitive Health in Older Adults

This may seem as no surprise at first glance; however, the difference is this time around University of Florida researchers actually monitored and collected activity data. In a news report released by University of Florida News, this new research improves on previous studies by recording the actual energy expended, as well as monitoring the consumption

3D Realtime representation of Conscience

In mid-June, Professor Brian Pollard of Manchester spoke to the European Anesthesiology Congress in Amsterdam regarding a 3D real time representation of changes in electricity in the brain as it slips from consciousness using a light weight machine that can fit on a small push cart called fEITER (“functional electrical impedance tomography by evoked response)
