Brain scans predict which criminals are more likely to reoffend Doug Menuez/Getty Activity in a particular region of the cortex could tell whether a convict is likely to get in trouble again. In a twist that evokes the dystopian science fiction of writer Philip K. Dick, neuroscientists have found a way to predict whether convicted felons are likely to commit crimes again from looking at their brain scans. New study reveals how time could run BACKWARDS in a parallel ‘multiverse’ In an alternate universe, the arrows of time could run in the opposite direction of what we know, unfolding so that our known past exists during the far-off future of a distant world. A pair of scientists from the California Institute of Technology and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who suggest this concept aren't the first to do so, but they've demonstrated how this phenomenon could arise based on simpler principles than previously examined. Using entropy as the basis for their model, the physicists have developed a way to show the spontaneous appearance of the arrows of time, and how they can flow in opposite directions. In the multiverse, pictured above, parallel universes could exist, with time running in opposite directions. A pair of scientists from the California Institute of Technology and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a model to explain how this could happen based on simpler principles than previously examined

DARPA Wearable Tech Suit Could Help Soldiers Run a 4-Minute Mile A quick Google search of “Warrior Web” — a program of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — shows images that appear to be from a science-fiction movie, not a government program. What began nearly three years ago as an effort to create lightweight, exoskeleton suits to help reduce soldier injuries is showing promising results, according to DARPA. The agency says initial prototypes have undergone rigorous evaluation at the Soldier Performance and Equipment Advanced Research Facility at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.

What is a 'computer' anymore? Technology It used to be a person. Now it's a machine. What's next? Please consider disabling it for our site, or supporting our work in one of these ways Subscribe Now > NEW RESEARCH: More than half of the top 100 URLS are tracking you You’ve probably never heard of most of the 100 top URLs in world. In fact, most users have no idea that they’ve even accessed most of the 89 domains the average user interacts with in a month. A new F-Secure Labs study of the top 100 URLS accessed by customers all over the globe shows that of the world’s top URLs only 15% were accessed directly. The remaining 85% were accessed by other websites or software on the users PCs. Of the 85% accessed automatically, 10% come from ad-serving domains, 35% are ad-serving domains with tracking components and 19% are purely tracking domains. This means that at least half of the URLs your browser accesses are not providing you any content.

Neuroscientists Successfully Demonstrate Rat and Monkey ‘Brainets’ A team of neuroscientists at Duke University published two separate studies today, one involving rats and the other involving rhesus macaque monkeys, that describe experiments on networks of brains, or Brainets, and illustrate how such networks could be used to combine electrical outputs from the neurons of multiple animals to perform tasks. Monkey experiment: primates were seated in separate rooms, each facing a computer monitor showing the virtual avatar arm from a first person perspective. Image credit: Arjun Ramakrishnan et al. In the monkey experiment, Dr Miguel Nicolelis of the Duke University School of Medicine and his colleagues linked the brains of rhesus macaque monkeys, who worked together to control the movements of the arm of a virtual avatar on a digital display in front of them. Each animal controlled two of three dimensions of movement for the same arm as they guided it together to touch a moving target.

Five Body Worn Technology Trends in the Police Force U.S. police departments are on the cusp of full 21st century integration, exploiting the digital age’s numerous technological advancements in the name of public safety. Gone are the days of relying on radios and telephones during times of crisis on the frontline - today police officers throughout America are embracing the cutting-edge technology of tomorrow to better serve their country. Body-worn technology in particular is very much on the rise, providing U.S. officers with access to wearable innovations for convenience and cover. Here’s a breakdown of 5 wearable technologies revolutionizing the present and future of US law enforcement.

DARPA’s brand new autonomous quadcopter DARPA’s brand new autonomous quadcopter We may eliminate the high-tech billionaire in making premature boasts around the abilities connected with autonomous automobiles. In the end, keeping just one between relevant navigational beacons is piece of cake regarding particular goal algorithms jogging in digital hardware. The problem is that will those people final several percent things connected with occupant or bystander safety apparently encourage them every time.
