Quantum AI's Digital Rainmaker?
If quantum AI is the Silk Road that will one day connect the power of quantum computing with solutions to some of the most important problems and biggest opportunities of the day, then evaluating gradients is the daunting Khyber Pass along the route.
6 of Country Music's Spookiest Tales and Creepiest Coincidences
Country music tells stories that run the full gamut of the human experience from love and loss to heartbreaks and hard luck, and from suffering and thriving to living and dying. But, what most country fans don’t normally associate their favorite music with are tales of terror, stories about ghosts, and even whispers of the occult.
Connecting the Simulation Theory and Transcension Theory
As scientists gather more evidence, the idea that we are living in a simulation is beginning to look less like a fringe theory among sci-fi nerds and more like a legitimate explanation for the universe. The simulation theory, however, might end up connecting yet another fringe theory that attempts to explain the seeming silence of the universe -- a silence generally referred to as Fermi’s Paradox.
Five Experiments That Show Your Universe Is Weird, Really Weird
We take our reality just like we take our tax preparers: solid and dependable, with an aversion to surprises. Experiments during the last few years, however, seem to indicate that our reality is less like a nerdy accountant buried in piles of 1040 forms and more like the half naked, fully drunk performance artist who thrives on not just surprising, but shocking the ever-loving crap out of us.
Welcome to the Matrix
Just like a 3-dimensional Princess Leia burst out of a 2-dimensional piece of film and just like that 3-D image pops off the 2-D sticker on your credit card, evidence is growing that the universe around you may be a 3-dimensional bubble emanating out of a 2-dimensional surface.
Baby Uber Can Fly My Car
Personal flying cars always seem to be right around the corner, or, more accurately, right over the horizon. Just like Mars bases and cold fusion, the technology to create a flying car was always about 20 years away. However, more experts are saying that a converging herd of technology -- sensors, batteries, aerodynamics, and computer -- are making the flying car more plausible and some industry pundits are saying we should see serious attempts at it this year.
The Future of the Future
When it comes to futurism, 2016 was no slouch. Lots of technology first-evers were introduced in 2016, including reusable rocket ships that pinpoint landed on barges floating in the middle of the ocean, the possible detection of gravity waves, autonomous cars reaching new thresholds in acceptance, and major steps in quantum computing.
Antimatter: X-mas Files Edition
Sure. Sure. The Christmas season is full of crass commercialism. Materialist dogma -- of all varieties -- are on display everywhere. But the season has traditionally been regarded as a time of supernatural activity and high strangeness, as this edition of Antimatter shows.
