New Quantum Theory Could Explain the Flow of Time By Natalie Wolchover, Quanta Magazine Friday, April 25 222 Comments A new theory explains the seemingly irreversible arrow of time while yielding insights into entropy, quantum computers, black holes, and the past-future divide. Use Science and Tech to Build the Ultimate Automated Garden By Thomas Hayden and Sal Vaglica Monday, April 21 9 Comments Let people who love sore backs and dirty fingernails painstakingly tend their gardenias. Today’s backyard should be a maximized, automated, hyperefficient system of caloric production. With a little science—and some engineering prowess—you can keep your plot tidy, pest-free, and healthy while barely lifting a finger. So kick back with a gin-spiked kombucha and let your self-maintaining yard crank out the zero-mile arugula.

Conde Nast Entertainment How to Make a Giant Robot Mech In partnership with YouTube, the Stan Winston School, and Legacy Effects, WIRED built a giant robot mech, which debuted at San Diego Comic Con 2013. From design to tech, and prototype to finished product, see how the ultimate cosplay creation came to life. Language model A statistical language model assigns a probability to a sequence of m words by means of a probability distribution. Language modeling is used in many natural language processing applications such as speech recognition, machine translation, part-of-speech tagging, parsing and information retrieval. In speech recognition and in data compression, such a model tries to capture the properties of a language, and to predict the next word in a speech sequence. When used in information retrieval, a language model is associated with a document in a collection. With query Q as input, retrieved documents are ranked based on the probability that the document's language model would generate the terms of the query, P(Q|Md).

Robert N. M. Watson: Home Page @ I am a University Lecturer in Systems, Security, and Architecture in the Security Research Group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. I lead a number of cross-layer research projects spanning computer architecture, compilers, program analysis, program transformation, operating systems, networking, and security. Current projects include CTSRD, a project in collaboration with SRI International looking at clean-slate hardware and software designs for security. This includes the BERI and CHERI processor designs, and SOAAP and TESLA, software analysis and transformation systems based on LLVM.

Solar System Planet Earth A European researcher has interpreted carvings in a 32,500-year-old ivory tablet as a pattern of the same stars that we see in the sky today in the constellation Orion. The tablet is a sliver of ivory from the tusk of a mammoth — a large woolly animal like an elephant. Mammoths are extinct today. Carved into the ivory is what appears to be a carving of a human figure with outstretched arms and legs.

Brain - TIME - News, pictures, quotes, archive Skip to Content Topics Sections → Search LHC Machine Outreach The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is built in a circular tunnel 27 km in circumference. The tunnel is buried around 50 to 175 m. underground. It straddles the Swiss and French borders on the outskirts of Geneva. The first beams were circulated successfully on 10th September 2008. Unfortunately on 19th September a serious fault developed damaging a number of superconducting magnets.
