"Issue a command now on a smartphone — like starting a web search — and the response isn’t exactly immediate. A lag of 50 to several hundred milliseconds is common, partly because signals often must pass between different carrier switching centers; 5G, which uses newer networking technology, was designed to reduce latency down to a few milliseconds."

Yes, 5G will cost you more
https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/03/verizon-to-charge-10-extra-for-5g-but-wont-do-any-throttling-for-now/
"We can tell you that 5G Moto Mod users will experience ultra-fast speeds, be able to download and stream movies in seconds, and, due to 5G's low latency, they'll be able to video conference and collaborate remotely in near real-time," Verizon told Ars, when asked for specific speed and latency numbers. "While we have been clear that 5G service will be a significant [upgrade] over 4G LTE when it comes to speed and latency, we'll provide expected network performance information closer to launch."

What Is 5G? Here’s What You Need to Know About the New Network
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/31/technology/personaltech/5g-what-you-need-to-know.html
"The 5G speeds will be particularly noticeable in higher-quality streaming video. And downloading a typical movie at the median speeds cited by Qualcomm would take 17 seconds with 5G, compared with six minutes for 4G."

AI in Video Games: Toward a More Intelligent Game
http://sitn.hms.harvard.edu/flash/2017/ai-video-games-toward-intelligent-game/
"Although AI designers in the 1990s worked very hard to make NPCs look intelligent, these characters lacked one very important trait: the ability to learn. In most video games, NPCs’ behavior patterns are programmed and they are incapable of learning anything from players, e.g. they don’t evolve based on human players’ input. "

Nvidia has created the first video game demo using AI-generated graphics
https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/3/18121198/ai-generated-video-game-graphics-nvidia-driving-demo-neurips
"The demo is powered using just a single GPU — a notable achievement for such cutting-edge work. (Though admittedly that GPU is the company’s top of the range $3,000 Titan V, “the most powerful PC GPU ever created” and one typically used for advanced simulation processing rather than gaming.)"

DOOM Level Generation using Generative Adversarial Networks
https://arxiv.org/pdf/1804.09154.pdf
"—We applied Generative Adversarial Networks
(GANs) to learn a model of DOOM levels from human-designed content. Initially, we analyzed the levels and extracted several topological features. Then, for each level, we extracted a set of images identifying the occupied area, the height map, the walls, and the position of game objects. We trained two GANs: one using plain level images, one using both the images and some of the features extracted during the preliminary analysis"

We’re Going to Detect More Gravitational Waves Than Ever Before, Here’s How



LIGO's Gravitational Wave Discovery Is Still In Question, But Why? - https://youtu.be/aQ1entvy7vI

Read More:
Gravitational-wave observatory LIGO set to double its detecting power
ttps://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00573-4
"But the ALIGO+ upgrades will be more dramatic. If all goes to plan, LIGO will be able to detect neutron-star mergers that occur within 325 megaparsecs (around 1 billion light years) of Earth, says Ken Strain, a physicist at the University of Glasgow, UK, who leads a consortium of British universities that are expected to receive most of the UK money. That would nearly double the design sensitivity of 173 megaparsecs that LIGO expects to reach before the ALIGO+ upgrade."

LIGO Receives New Funding to Search for More Extreme Cosmic Events
https://www.ligo.caltech.edu/LA/news/ligo20190214
"This award ensures that NSF's LIGO, which made the first historic detection of gravitational waves in 2015, will continue to lead in gravitational-wave science for the next decade," said Anne Kinney, assistant director for NSF's Mathematical and Physical Sciences Directorate, in a statement. "

GET READY FOR GRAVITATIONAL WAVES ALL DAY, EVERY DAY
https://www.wired.com/story/get-ready-for-gravitational-waves-all-day-every-day/
Another strategy to collect more signals is to build more observatories. Detectors in different locations that register the same signal help the researchers confirm that it’s from a gravitational wave. In addition, more detectors provide more coverage of the universe.

Why This 3D Light Printer Is A HUGE Game Changer

Volumetric additive manufacturing via tomographic reconstruction
http://science.sciencemag.org/content/early/2019/01/30/science.aau7114
"The speed, geometry, and surface quality limitations of additive processes are linked to the reliance on material layering. We demonstrated concurrent printing of all points within a three-dimensional object by illuminating a rotating volume of photosensitive material with a dynamically evolving light pattern. We print features as small as 0.3 mm in engineering acrylate polymers, as well as printing soft structures with exceptionally smooth surfaces into a gelatin methacrylate hydrogel"

One-step volumetric additive manufacturing of complex polymer structures
http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/12/eaao5496
"Two limitations of additive manufacturing methods that arise from layer-based fabrication are slow speed and geometric constraints (which include poor surface quality). Both limitations are overcome in the work reported here, introducing a new volumetric additive fabrication paradigm that produces photopolymer structures with complex nonperiodic three-dimensional geometries on a time scale of seconds."

What is volumetric 3D printing and why it could mean the end of additive layer manufacturing
https://www.3dprintingmedia.network/what-is-volumetric-3d-printing-and-why-it-could-mean-the-end-of-additive-manufacturing/
"Powder bed fusion would be excluded for now mainly because it would likely require way too much energy to be able to control it. Even if researchers were able to develop a volumetric powder bed fusion process for polymers (perhaps an evolution of EOS’s LaserProFusion), it would still take many years before even beginning to consider applying it to metals (although EOS’ CEO Adrian Keppler did tell us it would theoretically be possible at formnext)"

"Investigating the multidimensional integration between different microbiological kingdoms possesses potential toward engineering next-generation bionic architectures. Bacterial and fungal kingdom exhibits mutual symbiosis that can offer advanced functionalities to these bionic architectures. Moreover, functional nanomaterials can serve as probing agents for accessing newer information from microbial organisms due to their dimensional similarities."

“Bionic Mushrooms” Fuse Nanotech, Bacteria and Fungi
https://www.stevens.edu/news/bionic-mushrooms-fuse-nanotech-bacteria-and-fungi
"“With this work, we can imagine enormous opportunities for next-generation bio-hybrid applications,” Mannoor says. “For example, some bacteria can glow, while others sense toxins or produce fuel. By seamlessly integrating these microbes with nanomaterials, we could potentially realize many other amazing designer bio-hybrids for the environment, defense, healthcare and many other fields.”

Engineers create plants that glow
http://news.mit.edu/2017/engineers-create-nanobionic-plants-that-glow-1213
"MIT engineers have taken a critical first step toward making that vision a reality. By embedding specialized nanoparticles into the leaves of a watercress plant, they induced the plants to give off dim light for nearly four hours. They believe that, with further optimization, such plants will one day be bright enough to illuminate a workspace."

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/01/17/686205971/scientists-find-brain-cells-that-make-pain-hurt
""This study is a major advance," says Irene Tracey, a pain neuroscientist at Oxford University who wasn't involved in the study. "It was a tour de force and a welcome addition to understanding this complex and major problem.""

An amygdalar neural ensemble that encodes the unpleasantness of pain
http://science.sciencemag.org/content/363/6424/276
"Pain is an unpleasant experience. How the brain’s affective neural circuits attribute this aversive quality to nociceptive information remains unknown. By means of time-lapse in vivo calcium imaging and neural activity manipulation in freely behaving mice encountering noxious stimuli, we identified a distinct neural ensemble in the basolateral amygdala that encodes the negative affective valence of pain."

Researchers discover the brain cells that make pain unpleasant
http://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2019/01/researchers-discover-the-brain-cells-that-make-pain-unpleasant.html
"Long term, Scherrer aims to confirm that the function of the basolateral ensemble in mice is the same as it is in people, and then down the line, find a safe and effective way to silence the ensemble’s function without interfering with other neurons."

"Only animals with special filters in their eyes are privy to the neon light show, including many fish. For perhaps millions of years, these creatures have signaled each other in this secret language of light. 'There's a hidden layer of pattern and color that humans are just tuning in to,' Gruber says. 'It's a whole new way for us to perceive, and better understand, life in the sea.'"

Scientists Have Developed Shark Vision
https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2016/04/a-shark-eye-view/479568/
"'If fluorescence does help sharks see other members of their species, it could help them find each other for mating or socialization. But biofluorescing might also make the sharks more obvious to predators. Gruber says it’s not clear what animals eat these species—maybe other, bigger sharks—or what their own visual abilities might be. Very few shark species have been 'brought to the eye doctor,' he says. 'This study really opened my eyes up,” Gruber adds (no pun intended), 'to how little we know about shark vision.'"

Discovery of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) (Nobel Lecture)

"We started to collect jellyfish at 6 a.m., and a part of our
group began to cut off the rings at 8 a.m. We spent all
afternoon extracting aequorin from the rings. Then, we
collected more jellyfish in the evening for the
next day. Our laboratory looked like a jellyfish
factory, and was filled with the jellyfish smell.... Nowadays GFP and its homologues are indispensable in
biomedical research, due to the fact that these proteins selfcontain a fluorescent chromophore in their peptide chains
and they can be expressed in living bodies."

“The first three of these “division algebras” would soon lay the mathematical foundation for 20th-century physics, with real numbers appearing ubiquitously, complex numbers providing the math of quantum mechanics, and quaternions underlying Albert Einstein’s special theory of relativity.”

Four-Dimensional Numbers: The Quaternions
http://www.math.brown.edu/ ~banchoff/Beyond3d/chapter8/section08.html
“But would such numbers ever have practical applications? As it happens, these are exactly the numbers used to describe the orbits of the motion of pairs of pendulums. And quaternions have been recognized in recent years as one of the most effective means of communicating information about rotations to a graphics computer. Thus some of the most abstract algebraic constructions in four-space can be visualized as geometric phenomena.”

Design and characterization of electrons in a fractal geometry
https://www.nature.com/articles/s41567-018-0328-0
"Here, we show how arrays of artificial atoms can be defined by controlled positioning of CO molecules on a Cu (111) surface2,3,4, and how these sites couple to form electronic Sierpiński fractals."

Electrons in 1.58 dimensions? What the frac!
https://www.uu.nl/en/news/electrons-in-158-dimensions-what-the-frac
“These behaviours give rise to different possibilities for technological applications and electronic systems. But what happens if electrons live in 1.58 dimensions – and what does it actually mean to live in 1.58 dimensions?”

How Fractals Work
https://science.howstuffworks.com/math-concepts/fractals.htm
“Unconventional 20th century mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot created the term fractal from the Latin word fractus (meaning irregular or fragmented) in 1975. These irregular and fragmented shapes are all around us.”

What Is A Fractal (and what are they good for)?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFtTdf3I6Ug
“Fractals are complex, never-ending patterns created by repeating mathematical equations. Yuliya, a undergrad in Math at MIT, delves into their mysterious properties and how they can be found in technology and nature.”
