An international team of researchers based at MIT has figured out how to make the edges of the two-dimensional wonder material graphene behave like one-dimensional electronic wires. In terms of quantum computers, that’s an important advantage.
It’s just become easier to explore your interests across both Twitter and Google, since Google has added tweets to its search results on mobile. Google says this is an attempt to put “real-time info” into its results, and notes that it provides Twitter users with a larger audience for their content as well.

Is it possible to convert electrical energy into thrust without the need to expel any form of repellent? “Thrust measurements of the EmDrive defy classical physics’ expectations”, said NASA researchers.
Artficial Superintelligence (ASI) is an intellect that is much smarter than the best human brains in practically every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom and social skills. Could ASI create opportunities for us to vastly increase our quality of life?
Will computers be powerful enough to go off and find their own paths, which may conflict with humanity’s? We can boil down all potential outcomes into two broad categories: that Artificial Superintelligence (ASI) would have the ability to send humans to either immortality or extinction. The very fact that many of the worlds’ most intelligent people feel this issue is worth a public stance should be enough to grab your attention.
Fully autonomous robotic weapons that make lethal decisions about human beings all on their own are quickly becoming a reality. Advanced killer drones, automated weapons and AI-powered intelligence-gathering tools could take the decision to make war out of the hands of humans.
