Top Ten Real Ways Machines are Taking Over

As advances in technology increase year after year, machines are taking over more jobs that were once left to human hands and minds. We’ve listed the top ten ways that the machines are taking over:

The Music DJ

Remember the local radio disc jockey? Well, he’s mostly gone now, replaced by computer programs who use algorithms to automatically select songs that are catered to your tastes from a huge database.

Hobo Bots

What is the point of a robot without working legs? Imagine a huge network of 24-hour mechanical hobos that could harvest change from sympathetic humans. Even begging for change isn’t safe from technology. Continue reading “Top Ten Real Ways Machines are Taking Over”

If you do not want that the message that would you like to remember the password, then follow these steps: Continue reading “How to hide the would you like to remember password message”

Brain Activity

We all may know that imaging techniques have become an integral part of the neurosciences. However, the underlying data have to be processed in elaborate ways before a colourful image informs us about brain activity. Scientists from Freiburg and colleagues were now able to demonstrate how the use of different filters may influence the resulting images and lead to contradicting conclusions. Tonio Ball of the Bernstein Center Freiburg and colleagues from the universities of ldenburg, Basel and Magdeburg demonstrate how variable the results of imaging techniques like functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) can be – depending on the way how the original data are filtered.

Aircraft to be tested in air

National Aerospace laboratories (NAL) and Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) In India, developed a technology called “structural health monitoring (SHM)”. According to it, crack or damages on an aircraft can be predicted even when it is airborne. The flight trials were conducted on “Aeronautical Development Establishment’s” unmanned air vehicle, Nishant.

How to calculate journal impact factor

You must have heard about the journal impact factor (IF) and its importance. Researchers want their publications in high impact factor journals. Do you know what IF really is? Lets discuss:
Journal Impact Factor is from Journal Citation Report (JCR), a product of Thomson ISI (Institute for Scientific Information). JCR provides quantitative tools for evaluating journals and the IF is one of these. Basically it is a measure of the frequency with which the “average article” in a journal has been cited in a given period of time. Continue reading “How to calculate journal impact factor”
