DARPA funding IBM for chip that mimic human brain

IBM has unveiled a new experimental computer chip that it says mimics the human brain in that it perceives, search acts and even thinks.

It terms the machines built with these chips “cognitive computers”, claiming that they are able to learn through experience, find patterns, generate ideas and understand the outcomes.

Metamaterials To Hide Events In Time As Well As In Space

Forget invisibility cloaks. Researchers at Imperial College London have demonstrated – on paper, prostate anyhow – a metamaterial “space-time cloak” that can conceal entire events from view, making a viewer see one thing while something entirely different takes place behind the cloak. Paging DARPA.

A space-time cloak would do this with protons [photons], accelerating some, [...]

Lockheed Martin and AAI Corp., a unit of [...]

As futuristic and far-fetched as this seems, approved Tanagram is actually in [...]
