China will have pre-exaFLOP prototype supercomputer in 2017 which is preparation for an exaFLOP supercomputer in 2020  

China is planning to develop a prototype of an exascale computer, considered the next frontier of supercomputers, by the end of 2017, according to a developer Tuesday.EArly in 2016, China had announced plans to build three different pre-exascale systems with three very different architectures, according to some Tweets put out by James Lin, vice director for the Center of HPC at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.The three-way horse race for exascale machines in China will set up a horse race between

Memristor can do multistate processing as well as nonvolatile memory  

Short of full blown molecular computers or universal quantum computers or optical computers memristors have the most potential for a hardware change to dramatically boost the power and capabilities of computers. The boost to computer power could be nearly a million times by fully leveraging memristors. It would likely be more like a thousand times with more near to mid term usage of memristors. Memristors (aka ReRAM) could become computer memory that is over 10 times denser than Flash or DRAM in

Russia tests railgun by firing 7200 mph projectiles but the test projectile is 1000 times smaller than US railgun  

A team of Russian scientists has successfully tested the country's first railgun, which relies on electromagnetic forces rather than explosives or propellant. According to experts at the Institute of High Temperatures' branch in Shatura, just outside Moscow, the railgun can fire shells at an incredibly fast speed of 3 kilometers per second, which is well enough to cut through any type of armor existing today.During the latest test, a 15 gram plastic cylinder fired by the railgun went thr

Pan-mTOR inhibitors may be superior to rapamycin for antiaging  

Gerosuppression by pan-mTOR inhibitorsRapamycin slows organismal aging and delays age-related diseases, extending lifespan in numerous species. In cells, rapamycin and other rapalogs such as everolimus suppress geroconversion from quiescence to senescence. Rapamycin inhibits some, but not all, activities of mTOR. Recently we and others demonstrated that pan-mTOR inhibitors, known also as dual mTORC1/C2 inhibitors, suppress senescent phenotype. As a continuation of these studies, here we investig

Russia is modernizing military to updated 1980s technology but could drop to level of Pakistan in terms of world power by 2050

Their success in that pursuit has been mixed, and exact numbers are hard to find, but the share of modern equipment in service has clearly been increasing.Russia's Deputy Defense Minister said in April 2016 that the military had received some 1,200 'new and modernized aircraft' since 2013—250 new planes, 300 new helicopters an...

What does being on track for the predicted Technological Singularity mean and are we on track ?  

Ray Kurzweil is famous for his vision and prediction of a Technological Singularity by 2049 Although whenever Ray predicts a date like 2049, based on Kurzweil's own past reviews of his predictions, he gives his predictions ten years late or early to develop. So by Ray's personal standard his prediction timing of being correct on the Technological Singularity would be if it happened in the 2041 to 2059 time window. Usually his predictions are based upon exponential developments and progre

A common feature of games with these successes is that they involve information symmetry among the players, where all players have identical information. This property of perfect information, though, is far more common in games than in real-world problems.Poker is the quintessential game of imperfect information, and it has been a longstanding challenge problem in artif

A new method of stimulating the renewal of living stem cells in tooth pulp using an Alzheimer's drug has been discovered by a team of researchers at King's College London.Following trauma or an infection, the inner, soft pulp of a tooth can become exposed and infected. In order to protect the tooth from infection, a thin band of dentine is naturally produced and this seals the tooth pulp, but it is insufficient to effectively repair large cavities.

Billionaire backed Breakthrough Initiative funds new coronograph on European Very Large Telescope to get scope time to find and study exoplanets around Alpha Centauri  

ESO has signed an agreement with the Breakthrough Initiatives to adapt the Very Large Telescope instrumentation in Chile to conduct a search for planets in the nearby star system Alpha Centauri. Such planets could be the targets for an eventual launch of miniature space probes by the Breakthrough Starshot initiative.ESO, represented by the Director General, Tim de Zeeuw, has signed an agreement with the Breakthrough Initiatives, represented by Pete Worden, Chairman of the Breakthrough Prize Foun

Proposals for new stellerator fusion designs and projects in the 2020s  

Although there is as yet no clear path to a practical steady-state fusion system, stellarator research greatly improves the chances for success. Advances in stellarator physics and engineering in the years since the large stellarators LHD and W7-X were designed have the potential to make quantum improvements in the design of stellarators. The current aim of the U.S. stellarator program is to continue to advance the science and technology of stellarators through theory and experimental research o

40% lower HIV infections in London using online pre-exposure prophylaxis from India  

Four London sexual health clinics saw dramatic falls in new HIV infections among gay men of around 40 per cent last year, compared with 2015 This decline may be mostly due to thousands of people buying medicines called pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), which cut the chance of catching the virus, online.To avoid paying £400 a month for private prescriptions of the brand-name drug Truvada, growing numbers are buying generic versions from online pharmacies in India and Swaziland for £40 a month, t...

Record setting 32 and 36 tesla magnets at magnet lab and 15 to 22 tesla commercial magnet products  

The strongest superconducting user magnet in the world currently has a field strength of 23.5 tesla. When this ambitious project is completed in 2017, the strongest superconducting magnet on the planet will be housed at the MagLab. At 32 tesla, it will be a whopping 8.5 tesla stronger than the current record - a giant leap in a technology that, since the 1960s, has seen only baby steps of 0.5 to 1 tesla. In June 2015, a test for the 32 tesla magnet set a new world record of 27 teslas for an al...

Tabby star could have brightened after consuming a planet and is now dimming back to normal  

Arxiv - Secular Dimming of KIC 8462852 Following its Consumption of a PlanetThe Kepler-field star KIC 8462852, an otherwise apparently ordinary F3 main-sequence star, showed several highly unusual dimming events of variable depth and duration. Adding to the mystery was the discovery that KIC 8462852 faded by 14% from 1890 to 1989, as well as by another 3% over the 4 year Kepler mission. Over the 4 year period of the nominal Kepler mission (Borucki et al. 2010), the star underwent several dimming

DARPA drone flew for 56 hours and landed with over half its fuel so looks close to achieving 7 days without refueling   

A DARPA-backed small business effort broke boundaries for long-endurance flight this month by launching a uniquely designed, combustion-powered unmanned aircraft that stayed aloft for more than two days and two nights. The flight was terminated several days ahead of schedule because of incoming weather. But the craft—built by Vanilla Aircraft of Falls Church, Virginia—landed safely with more than half its fuel still onboard, suggesting it is capable of setting additional records for powered ...
