Really, Incandescent Bulbs More Efficient than LED. Don’t they have that backwards? It is getting harder and harder to find incandescent light bulbs in the hardware or grocery stores. It is is even harder to find a consumer that wants to buy one. I mean why would we when we have LED technology that blows them […]

A Novel Machine Learning and Object Recognition Algorithm from MIT. Machine learning, which is the basis for most commercial artificial-intelligence systems, is intrinsically probabilistic. An object-recognition algorithm asked to classify a particular image, for instance, might conclude that it has a 60 percent chance of depicting a dog, but a 30 percent chance of depicting […]

Robotic Cheetah from the team at MIT – TeK-THinK Just looking at MIT’s robotic cheetah should give most people a chill. The ‘cheetah’ has no head, tail or even the characteristic beautiful decorated skin these swift jungle cats are known for. But before you can scoff move on shaking your head, the cheetah’s antics will […]
