Reseachers at UCLA have developed an all optical neural network system, which uses specially etched plates to diffract incoming light to perform calculations. A number of plates are layered together to create teh Diffractive Deep Neural Network (D2NN) which can perform calculations at the speed of light.
The band Khruangbin have created a site called Air Khruang which allows users that are taking a flight to enter their source and destination airports and receive a generated playlist of music for their flight.
Technology developed at CERN by New Zealand father and son scientists Professors Phil and Anthony butler called the Medipix3 has been used to produce the world's first 3D colour X-Ray. The Medipix is a chip used in the Large Hadron Collider for particle imaging and detection and has been refined by the scientists over the past 20 years. Their company MARS Bioimaging Ltd is now commercialising a 3D scanner using the technology.
MIT have released another video of humans being mean to robots their Cheetah 3 quadruped robot navigating a range of obstacles blind (without image sensors), including running up debris filled stairs (haha, take that Daleks!) and enduring being poked with a big stick while running and minding it's own business!
