Stephen Hawking's final book offers brief answers to big questions

Stephen Hawking's final work, which tackles issues from the existence of God to the potential for time travel, was launched on Monday by his children.

The food system and AI’s transformative potential

Artificial intelligence has the potential to radically reinvent the global food production system, with far reaching consequences on health, nutrition and environmental impact.

Computer Learns To Play Go At Superhuman Levels 'Without Human Knowledge'

Researchers say they have constructed an AI program that can teach itself to play the ancient strategy game at a level far beyond humans.

Personalized Exoskeletons Are Making Strides Toward a Man-Machine Interface

By designing adaptable machines that learn on the fly, researchers hope to create exoskeleton systems that will help to move faster and farther.

Model predicts presence of naked singularity in 4D space

The new model shows a naked singularity can yield what's called anti-de Sitter space, a curved, saddle-shaped space.

Elon Musk's latest target: Brain-computer interfaces

Tech billionaire Elon Musk is announcing a new venture called Neuralink focused on linking brains to computers.

Do black holes have a back door?

A recent study by researchers at the Institute of Corpuscular Physics in Valencia suggests that matter might in fact survive its foray into these space objects and come out the other side.

Ray Kurzweil: To Merge With Technology Is to Enhance Our Humanity

Technological shifts outpace our awareness of them. While we're busy with our day-to-day lives—getting a new smartphone or downloading the next updates—we often don't notice how these incremental changes shape our relationship with technology.

Light-matter interplay probed: Physicists achieve quantum Hall state with light

Harnessing the shared wave nature of light and matter, researchers have used light to explore some of the most intriguing questions in the quantum mechanics of materials.

Wormholes Might Burrow Through Black Hole Cores

Remove the singularity and a wormhole appears in the center of a black hole -- but is it traversable?

New Google Device Injected Into Eyeball :

According to a report at Forbes, Google recently filed a patent for an electronic device that would be injected directly into the user’s eyeball. As described in the patent filing, the “intra-ocular device” includes an electronic lens that is injected within a fluid which solidifies after application.

The Singularity and the Neural Code

Bionic convergence and psychic uploading won’t be possible unless we crack the neural code, science’s hardest problem.

Enhanced Training Through Neurostimulation

It’s a case of life imitating art. Much as the sci-fi film “The Matrix” depicted a device capable of enhancing skill acquisition, researchers at HRL Laboratories, LLC, have discovered that low-current electrical brain stimulation can modulate the learning of complex real-world skills.
