Chris Robinson24,784General Science Circle- Final UpdateLast August I started this General Science Database (http://goo.gl/tp06X), which could be uploaded into Google+ using the import contacts feature. Over the last year, the database has morphed into a shared circle and more recently into +Science on Google+: A Public Database. Due to the increasing overlap with the +Science on Google+: A Public Database, this will be the last time that I will be updating and sharing this circle.If you are a scientist, science teacher, or science writer, please feel free to add your profile/page to the +Science on Google+: A Public Database by filling out this form (http://goo.gl/yEg7M) and circling +Science on Google+: A Public Database. 2012-07-25 14:47:31300101339

Nanotechnology aids in cooling electrons without external sources - News Center - UT Arlington

'A team of researchers has discovered a way to cool electrons to -228 °C without external means and at room temperature, an advancement that could enable electronic devices to function with very little energy.

The process involves passing electrons through a quantum well to cool them and keep them from heating.

The team details its research in “Energy-filtered cold electron transport at room temperature,” which is published in Nature Communications on Wednesday, Sept. 10.

“We are the first to effectively cool electrons at room temperature. Researchers have done electron cooling before, but only when the entire device is immersed into an extremely cold cooling bath,” said Seong Jin Koh, an associate professor at UT Arlington in the Materials Science& En... Mer »

IBM cracks open a new era of computing with brain-like chip: 4096 cores, 1 million neurons, 5.4 billion transistors | ExtremeTech

'Scientists at IBM Research have created by far the most advanced neuromorphic (brain-like) computer chip to date. The chip, called TrueNorth, consists of 1 million programmable neurons and 256 million programmable synapses across 4096 individual neurosynaptic cores. Built on Samsung’s 28nm process and with a monstrous transistor count of 5.4 billion, this is one of the largest and most advanced computer chips ever made. Perhaps most importantly, though, TrueNorth is incredibly efficient: The chip consumes just 72 milliwatts at max load, which equates to around 400 billion synaptic operations per second per watt — or about 176,000 times more efficient than a modern CPU running the same brain-like workload, or 769 times more efficient than othersta...

It's kind of strange that it takes so long to turn ideas on their head.  Learning how a process makes sense backwards and forwards is an important step to understanding fundamentals and nuance.  It's also a good way to add assumptions that can be challenged.

Quantum connection could revitalize superstrings | Science News

"If string or M-theory theory really underlies all physics, it seems that the door has been opened to an explanation of the origins of quantum mechanics from physical processes."
—Itzhak Bars and Dmitry Rychkov

'...
For now, though, superstring theory lacks the sort of dramatic demonstration that propels radical theories into prominence, such as Einstein’s famous precise prediction of how much starlight would be deflected when passing by the sun as measured during a solar eclipse. But perhaps some different sort of accomplishment could elevate superstring’s status. Such as one proposed in the new paper by Bars and Rychkov.

They point out that when string theory was developed, everybody assumed quantum mechanics was correct (which it is) and designed string theory to observe the quantum rules. But suppose, just for the fun of it, that you tried to build string theory without any quantum restrictions. Bars and Rychkov work out how to do that in a simplified version of string theory, specifically a version when the strings are “open” (not closed to make a loop).

In string theory, the common interactions between fundamental particles that physicists study are described as strings joining or splitting. In analyzing the details of the splitting and joining process, Bars and Rychkov found that the basic rules of quantum mechanics naturally emerge. In other words, you don’t need to assume quantum mechanics to find string theory — it’s the physics of strings that makes the world quantum mechanical.

For decades, explaining why nature observes the mysterious rules of quantum physics has perplexed physicists everywhere. Nobody could explain why those rules worked. The connection between string physics and the quantum math may now lead the way to an answer.
...'

Is String Interaction the Origin of Quantum Mechanics?

'String theory developed by demanding consistency with quantum mechanics. In this paper we wish to reverse the reasoning. We pretend open string field theory is a fully consistent definition of the theory - it is at least a self consistent sector. Then we find in its structure that the rules of quantum mechanics emerge from the non-commutative nature of the basic string joining/splitting interactions, thus deriving rather than assuming the quantum commutation rules among the usual canonical quantum variables for all physical systems derivable from open string field theory. Morally we would apply such an argument to M-theory to cover all physics. If string or M-theory theory really underlies all physics, it seems that the door has been opened to an understanding of the origins of quantum mechanics. '

Yet another reason I love reading about Alan Turing.  He was clearly one of the brightest minds in computation and it's truly unfortunate that he died so young and missed out on watching how his ideas would change the world.

During the evolutionary process, organisms sometimes "devolve" or remove valuable functions in the pursuit of better functions down the line.  In this way, evolution is both forward and backward facing in the pursuit of continuity.

An excellent article on both biological and digital evolutionary systems, exploring contingency and convergence.

"In one experiment, the Avidians were set to the task of evolving the ability to solve a complex logic problem called “bitwise equals.” Only four out of the 50 digital populations evolved the code necessary to complete the operation.4 All of the successful populations were ones that initially carried a lot of mutations (random pieces of computer code) that made it harder for them to solve math problems and therefore reproduce. It seems counterintuitive, but Ofria found that the early, bad mutations were essential to improvingthe ... Mer »

I wonder how VR and AI are going to get along; the future looks promising.  I never watched the movie, DOOM, though I heard of the terrible use of first person perspective.  I imagine being inside of an environment will be more compelling than Smell-O-Vision.

'Meanwhile, Olaf is even more ebullient about directions that this technology could take us in. "If you think about it, the idea of having just one body is a bit old fashioned. We should have the brain power: after all, we have two arms and two legs, and we can control them just fine. Why not have two bodies, or four, or even six?"'

Thanks to +Jim Douglas's comment on my previous post, which revealed the source article for the cool PIN heat map. Sharing this link as a new post because the whole article is worth reading for its various analyses (you can crack 10% of PINs by guessing '1234', for example, or 20% with the five most popular codes, for example).___Interested in PIN Code frequency or passwords?  Check out this article - it has beautiful graphs!

Intel and several of its partners said they will make 800Gbps cables available in the second half of this year, bringing big speed increases to supercomputers and data centers.

The new cables are based on Intel's Silicon Photonics technology that pushes 25Gbps across each fiber. Last year, Intel demonstrated speeds of 100Gbps in each direction, using eight fibers. A new connector that goes by the name "MXC" holds up to 64 fibers (32 for transmitting and 32 for receiving), enabling a jump to 800Gbps in one direction and 800Gbps in the other, or an aggregate of "1.6Tbps" as Intel prefers to call it. (In case you're wondering, MXC is not an acronym for anything.)

As a 30th anniversary celebration, the BBC has recreated the 1984 (and later 2004) text adventure game The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

The original Hitchhiker's Guide game sold more than 350,000 copies in 1984, but was knocked off its perch when graphical point-and-click adventures came along.

It can be played on the BBC website now:

The largest clinical study ever conducted to date of patients with advanced leukemia found that 88 percent achieved complete remissions after being treated with genetically modified versions of their own immune cells. "These extraordinary results demonstrate that cell therapy is a powerful treatment for patients who have exhausted all conventional therapies," said a senior author. "Our initial findings have held up in a larger cohort of patients, and we are already looking at new clinical studies to advance this novel therapeutic approach in fighting cancer."

In the body, sugar is converted into energy in a process called metabolism, which decomposes sugar into carbon dioxide and water while releasing electrons. Biobatteries produce energy though the same conversion process by capturing the electrons that are generated in the decomposition of sugar with the same tools that the body uses. Because biobatteries use materials that are biologically based, they are renewable and non-toxic, making them an attractive alternative to traditional batteries that need metals and chemicals to operate.

Google joins the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health
Posted by +Jonathan Bingham, Product Manager

Generating research data is easier than ever before, but interpreting and analyzing it is still hard, and getting harder as the volume increases. This is especially true of genomics. Sequencing the whole genome of a single person produces more than 100 gigabytes of raw data, and a million genomes will add up to more than 100 petabytes. In 2003, the Human Genome Project (http://goo.gl/rDUSr7) completed after 15 years and $3 billion. Today, it takes closer to one day and $1,000 to sequence a human genome.

A few years ago I came to the conclusion that for intelligence to exist, design must be inherent.  I do not attribute the source to any god, but to laws, a path, and a process.

This theory posits that thermodynamics is the guiding force behind life and evolution.  It will be interesting to see how this idea mutates and the patterns it may distill.

Whatever happens, I like where the ideas are headed.

For those who know me and know I've started to collaborate with some physicists, I just wanted to post something related to the kinds of problems we're working on. We don't work with Jeremy England, but we do take some similar approaches to thinking about the origins of life (and the origin of natural computational ability). So this article hits close to home.___A few years ago I came to the conclusion that for intelligence to exist, design must be inherent.  I do not attribute the source to any god, but to laws, a path, and a process.

The first edge-on one-dimensional electrical contact with graphene has been demonstrated http://spectrum.ieee.org/nanoclast/semiconductors/nanotechnology/engineers-make-electrical-contact-to-graphene-on-its-1-atom-thick-edge. Conventional approaches typically place the electrical contacts on the top surface of graphene sheets, which can multi-material layering difficult and complicated. This new approach allows electrical contacts to the atom-thick edges of graphene sheets and also multi-material stacked sheets such as graphene interleaved with sheets of boron-nitride. This also results in lower contact resistance compared to other approaches.

2. Complex Multi-Functional Particles for Cell Treatments.
A new type of particle has been fabricated from a wide variety of materials and nanostructures that enables remote detection, diagnosis, and drug delivery to cancerous and other cells of interest http://www.uc.edu/news/NR.aspx?id=18622. The particles can carry fluorescent molecules for imaging, transport cell-surface detection molecules, carry and deliver drugs and other molecules, and most importantly carry multiple components in a single assembly and function in a programmed manner thanks to functionally and distinct chemically surfaces. It will be good to follow the in vivo studies and it is promising to see such systems achieving greater complexity. 

3. Narrow Software AI Breaks CAPTCHAs.
Narrow artificial intelligence software developed by Vicarious has been demonstrated to accurately and quickly solve CAPTCHAs, those image-word games used by websites to allow humans access but block bots http://www.kurzweilai.net/vicarious-ai-breaks-captcha-turing-test. Some consider CAPTCHA schemes broken if an algorithm can determine the correct answer 1% of the time; Vicarious’ system routinely achieves accuracies greater than 90% and so renders CAPTCHAs no longer effective. The system is elegant, combining insights from machine learning and neuroscience, utilising miniscule amounts of data and computation, and achieves levels of effectiveness and efficiency much closer to human brains. Such visual perception software could find incredible broad uses in the years to come. 

4. Peptoid Velcro: Antibody Mimic.
Nanosheet scaffolds assembled from structurally-programmed peptoids (synthetic polymers that can fold like proteins) that form little functional loops can mimic the precise molecular-binding capabilities of natural antibodies http://phys.org/news/2013-10-molecular-velcro-cost-effective-alternatives-natural.html. Inserting short molecular segments into the loop-forming peptoids creates functional loops that can be selectively programmed to bind enzymes, inorganic materials, or other molecules - which enables a fantastically versatile platform for creating biosensors and catalysts for example. These peptoid materials can be made in very high yields and can withstand harsh environmental conditions.

5. Utilising Electricity-Producing Bacteria.
Work on microbial-electrode catalysts with dissimilatory metal-reducing bacteria indicate that relatively large amounts of electrical energy can be produced from seawater, carbon dioxide, and sunlight http://phys.org/news/2013-10-energy-bacteria.html. As an example demonstration, a thick biofilm of a certain species of bacteria was grown on the surface of an electrode; the bacteria acquire energy by coupling the oxidation of organic material with the reduction of insoluble metal oxidants, with electrons being transported through the extracellular biofilm to the electrode surface to generate a current. I wonder whether an implantable device based on this system might be able to power other implanted devices.

6. Super-Efficient Electro-Osmotic Pumps.
A new miniaturised electroosmotic pump is based on a silicon nanomembrane and can be used to move solutions through microfluidic channels up to 40 times more efficient than other similar pumps http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2013-10/uor-smc102813.php. The membranes are 15nm-thick porous nanocrystalline silicon, allow electrodes to be placed closer together, are cheap to make, and can easily be incorporated into a range of microfluidic chip architectures. Key applications are portable devices for sensing and diagnostic uses, although the low-powered movement of cooling fluids could also find uses in cooling computer chips - like those from IBM last week. 

7. Sophisticated DNA Sequencing with Graphene Nanopores.
There have been a number of designs and tests over the past couple of years for graphene nanopores to sequence strands of DNA. This latest effort consists of a more sophisticated design in which the electrical properties of the graphene can be tuned and the rotational and positional conformation of the DNA strand can be determined http://phys.org/news/2013-10-nanopore-ionically-graphene-quantum-transistor.html. It will be good to see the group reduce what is essentially a graphene-based field-effect transistor to practice and derive actual DNA sequence information. They plan to incorporate additional two-dimensional materials for added control, propose that future control (not just sensing) of biological molecules may be possible, and in general demonstrate the increasing complexity of molecular modelling programs. Graphene also allows switchable bio-interfaces http://www.nanowerk.com/spotlight/spotid=33004.php. 

8. New Circuit Doubles Wireless Bandwidth.
New company Kumu Networks has launched a circuit and algorithm that allows wireless data to be sent and received on the same frequency http://www.technologyreview.com/news/520586/the-clever-circuit-that-doubles-bandwidth/. This potentially enables wireless bandwidth to double in certain applications, with field trials planned with major carriers next year. The circuit predicts how much self-interference the transmitter is about to create, then generates a signal to cancel it out - thus allowing receiving data to be heard. This is the first time this has been possible with mobile and WiFi applications. 

9. Nanoparticle Light Filter for Boosting Algae.
Gold and silver nanoparticles have been used as an optical nanofilter that provides the wavelengths of light that are most useful to algae growth and production while blocking wavelengths that are harmful http://phys.org/news/2013-10-nanofilter-worth-weight-gold-silver.html. Algal production of biofuels and other materials is a hot area right now and it is great to have additional ways of boosting production in addition to the usual genetic engineering approaches. Other applications include artificial photosynthesis for improved hydrogen production. 

10. Rapid Scalable Synthesis of Quantum Dots.
Researchers have developed a scalable, continuous-flow, two-stage synthesis process to produce high quality quantum dot nanocrystals http://www.nanowerk.com/spotlight/spotid=32945.php. Synthesis typically involves nucleation and growth phases, but these demand different temperature conditions and is something that batch processes struggle with. The new system works with microfluidics to precisely mix starting materials, and control nucleation and growth in separate spaces - this produces results as good as the best batch process but which is also low-cost, mass-producible, and automated. Such control allows quantum dots with nearly any desired property to be produced for a huge range of applications - a potentially transformative capability and yet another demonstration of the power of adding modularity to technological systems.

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

23. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Corn porn.

Glass Gem Corn
These multicolored kernels of corn that look like glass beads belong to a specially bred variety, aptly named Glass Gem Corn, and they can be actually grown from seeds. Glass Gem corn was developed by Carl Barnes, a part-Cherokee farmer living in Oklahoma, who noticed that every so often, a cob showed signs of unusual coloring shining through. Barnes collected and saved those seeds, and thanks to his uncanny knack for corn breeding and many years of painstaking effort, Glass Gem corn was born.___Corn porn.

It was in 1989 that Schaeffer declared he was going to solve checkers, and that meant finding a way of navigating those 500 billion billion positions on a hunt for perfect moves. "When I started working on it seriously it was a million times bigger than any problem that had been computationally solved to perfection before," he admits. "This was really silly of me, but when you're young and innocent everything looks doable - so you do it."

Sony's version of Chromecast/PS Vita/AppleTV sounds like it will be better than having all three.  If it allows remote PC screen viewing/file streaming, it'll be a must have.  It will also allow you to stream PlayStation 4 games to a different TV, even if that is over at a friends house via Internet.  All this for roughly $100.
