Estimates by astronomers indicate that there could be more than 100 BILLION Earth-like worlds in the Milky Way that could be home to life. Think that’s a big number? According to astronomers, there are roughly 500 billion galaxies in the known universe, which means there are around 50,000,000,000,00…

200 universities just launched 600 free online courses. Here’s the full list.

If you haven’t heard, universities around the world are offering their courses online for free (or at least partially free). These courses are collectively called MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses. In the past six years or so, close to 800 universities have created more than 8,000 of these MOOCs. And I’ve been keeping track…

The hippocampus as a ‘predictive map’ | DeepMind

In our new paper, in Nature Neuroscience, we apply a neuroscience lens to a longstanding mathematical theory from machine learning to provide new insights into the nature of learning and memory. Specifically, we propose that the area of the brain known as the hippocampus offers a unique solution to this problem by compactly summarising future events using what we call a “predictive map.”

New insights on dark energy

The universe is not only expanding – it is accelerating outward, driven by what is commonly referred to as “dark energy.” The term is a poetic analogy to label for dark matter, the mysterious material that dominates the matter in the universe and that really is dark because it does not radiate light (it reveals itself via its gravitational influence on galaxies). Two explanations are commonly advanced to explain dark energy. The first, as Einstein once speculated, is that gravity itself causes objects to repel one another when they are far enough apart (he added this “cosmological constant” term to his equations). The second explanation hypothesizes (based on our current understanding of elementary particle physics) that the vacuum has properties that provide energy to the cosmos for expansion.

Watch:Finally! Black Hole Original Imaged For First Time By Event Horizon Telescope

For decades, astronomers believed that super-massive black holes exist at the very center of massive galaxies. So far, given their nature, all attempts to observe and study them have been confined to indirect methods. Now the history has been made on April 12th, 2017, changing all that, when an international team of astronomers captured the first-ever image of Sagittarius A*. In order to achieve these astronomers used a series of telescopes around the globe, collectively known as Event Horizon telescope (EHT). Whereby widely-space radio dishes from across the globe are connected into an Earth-sized virtual telescope, is known as Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI)

New type of supercomputer could be based on ‘magic dust’ combination of light and matter

The researchers, from Cambridge, Southampton and Cardiff Universities in the UK and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology in Russia, have used quantum particles known as polaritons – which are half light and half matter – to act as a type of ‘beacon’ showing the way to the simplest solution to complex problems. This entirely new design could form the basis of a new type of computer that can solve problems that are currently unsolvable, in diverse fields such as biology, finance or space travel.
