The Nanotube Site

Curl, Harold W. Kroto, and Richard E. Smalley, are nanotubes based on carbon or other elements. These systems consist of graphitic layers seamlessly wrapped to cylinders. The primary purpose of The Nanotube Site is to facilitate the exchange of ideas among researchers by concentrating links to sites dedicated to nanotubes. Mobile-fine-tuning.

Locusts Watch Star Wars To Create Robot Vision.

8 April 2000 by Kate Melville British and Swiss scientists have developed a robot with an electronic visual system based on that of a locust, enabling it to behave like a swarming insect and avoid collisions with objects.

Locusts Watch Star Wars To Create Robot Vision

Dr Claire Rind, of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, showed locusts clips of the Star Wars movie to study how their eyes and nerve cells reacted to fast-moving objects and backgrounds. She hopes the robot's neural network program, which mimics part of the locust's brain, will be the basis of a collision-avoidance system for cars. The conventional approach to creating such systems involves using radar or infrared detectors, and requires very heavy-duty computer processing. HAL. And AIML Documentation (A.L.I.C.E.

Richard S. Wallace is a no-nonsense technical book that takes you on a journey from the first steps of creating your own bot with AIML, through all the questions and answers every botmaster asks, to advanced A.I. and hard-nosed business applications of AIML. The trip ends with a brief glimpse into the future of bots and AIML. The Elements of AIML Style is also available as a benefit of membership in the ALICE A.I. Foundation.

Smart House. *notcot in design , 19:43 On incredible temporary event spaces, the Smart House (home of the Smart Fortwo) is one of the coolest spaces around.

Smart House

Located on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach, surrounded by some of the cutest boutiques, restaurants, and bars and only a few blocks from the beach, its a pity this loft will only be around till january. I was lucky enough to make it to the A+R launch dinner where we had dinner at the Smart House and cooked with Hans Rockenwagner and Wolfgang Gussmack of Rockenwagner - outdoor on the patio as a group we helped “cook” (aka stir) an unbelievably delicious pasta paella.

Nanotechnology Basics

Answers differ depending on who you ask, and their background. Broadly speaking however, nanotechnology is the act of purposefully manipulating matter at the atomic scale, otherwise known as the "nanoscale. " Coined as "nano-technology" in a 1974 paper by Norio Taniguchi at the University of Tokyo, and encompassing a multitude of rapidly emerging technologies, based upon the scaling down of existing technologies to the next level of precision and miniaturization.

Foresight Nanotech Institute Founder K. In the future, "nanotechnology" will likely include building machines and mechanisms with nanoscale dimensions, referred to these days as Molecular Nanotechnology (MNT).
