I received through my Google Alerts a very interesting article : Twitter is in talks with Microsoft and Google regarding the use of Data Mining technology on user Tweets. Despite the fact that Twitter execs do not appear so eager in making the deal as soon as possible, these news clearly show where things are going. If and when the deal is finalized it will be very interesting to see : 1) What kind of Data and Text Mining techniques will be mostly used? Which of them will prove useful? Mining the Tweets
Dec. 11, 2009 — Global climate change has prompted efforts to drastically reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas produced by burning fossil fuels. In a new approach, researchers from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have genetically modified a cyanobacterium to consume carbon dioxide and produce the liquid fuel isobutanol, which holds great potential as a gasoline alternative. The reaction is powered directly by energy from sunlight, through photosynthesis. The research appears in the Dec. 9 print edition of the journal Nature Biotechnology and is available online. Bacteria engineered to turn carbon dioxide into liquid fuel

Andy Borowitz: Slain Al-Qaeda Leader Posthumously Named Employee In a new videotape broadcast today on the Arabic-language Al-Jazeera network, terror mastermind Osama bin Laden named fallen terrorist Abu Yahya al-Libi Al-Qaeda's "Employee of the Month" for December. In the tape, in which Mr. bin Laden is shown holding the terror network's "Employee of the Month" plaque and then hanging it up on the wall of his cave, the Al-Qaeda kingpin had high words of praise for al-Libi, who was killed this week by a CIA predator drone. "Abu Yahya al-Libi worked well with others, and always kept his work area clean," Mr. bin Laden said. "For this, I hereby name him Al-Qaeda's Employee of the Month for December."

"100 Billion" The Most Profound Image in Human History - Hubble' The new Wide Field Camera 3 aboard the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has taken the deepest image yet of the Universe in near-infrared light. The faintest and reddest objects in the image are likely the oldest galaxies ever identified, having formed between only 600–900 million years after the Big Bang. The image shows thousands of galaxies, some more than 12 billion years old. The field view of this image would fit behind a grain of sand held at arm's length against the sky. Almost every dot in this photo is an entire galaxy of stars and who knows what fascinating undiscovered mysteries.

Google's web services may be considered cutting edge, but they run in warehouses filled with conventional computers. Now the search giant has revealed it is investigating the use of quantum computers to run its next generation of faster applications. Writing on Google's research blog this week, Hartmut Neven, head of its image recognition team, reveals that the Californian firm has for three years been quietly developing a quantum computer that can identify particular objects in a database of stills or video. Google has been doing this, Neven says, with D-Wave, a Canadian firm that has developed an on-chip array of quantum bits – or qubits – encoded in magnetically coupled superconducting loops. The team set themselves the challenge of writing an algorithm for the chip that could learn to recognise cars in photos, and reported at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference in Vancouver, Canada, this week that they have succeeded.
