Cyclocarbon - the first step towards creating an artificial brain

Carbon is one of the most common.chemical elements on our planet. Moreover, carbon is the basis of our existence, because we, in fact, are carbon forms of life. Since the unique chemical structure of carbon allows it to easily bind to other atoms to form molecules and thereby participate in the most important biochemical processes. However, there are many uses for carbon.Continue Reading

Pixels of smartphone screens “suggested” the laser method of graphene production

Many modern smartphones have brightAMOLED displays. At least two silicon transistors are hidden under each individual pixel, mass production of which is carried out using laser annealing technologies. Interestingly, a similar process can also be used to generate graphene crystals. Graphene is a strong and thin carbon nanomaterial that attracts the attention of scientists from all over the world with its remarkable properties, manifested inContinue Reading

Tesla solar panels can be rented for $ 50 a month. But not everything is so smooth

Tesla, the company of the famous Elon Mask, “drowns”for the early spread of solar power cells, probably stronger than everyone else. The fact is that a couple of years ago Tesla tried to launch a service for renting solar panels to power houses. Then, for a number of reasons (primarily because of the disadvantage), the program had to be curtailed. But now the company is returning to the market withContinue Reading

Tesla has built a "house on wheels" to advertise clean energy

The best way to show meritits products - to give people the opportunity to try and feel it. That's what Tesla did, having made a compact residential trailer, which carries the Model X crossover. A cozy house called Tiny House. Its roof consists entirely of solar panels manufactured by the company, and Tesla Powerwall energy storage system is located on one of the walls.Continue Reading

Norway relies on airplanes

State Norwegian representativesAvinor airport operators have reported that in the next 20 years the country plans to completely transfer small planes that make domestic short flights to electric traction, Avinor CEO Dag Falk-Petersen told AFP. They plan to carry out the transition smoothly: first, airlines will begin testing biofuel aircraft and will begin to use hybrid engines. In addition, in 2025 it is plannedContinue Reading

Why is the world's first solar-powered road a complete failure?

According to scientists, about 0.5% of the entire surfaceour planet is covered by roads. This rather large area is used only for car traffic, but why don't people use it for other purposes? For example, roads can be covered with solar panels that generate electricity to power streetlights. It was such an idea that a few years ago came up with the representatives of the French companyContinue Reading

Why do birds collide with airplanes?

In the language of pilots, “strike” is not the best blowwhich can be done in bowling. As a rule, this word in aviation means the collision of birds with an airplane (with the addition of the word bird (bird), it turns out “bird strike”). In fact, birds encounter planes very often: it is possible that such an incident even occurred during your recent flight, justContinue Reading

US wants to let supercomputer manage country’s nuclear potential

Today supercomputers are already prettyoften used for a variety of tasks. The computing power of modern supercomputers allows for complex mathematical calculations, help in creating new effective drugs, and even in the search for extraterrestrial life. However, all these areas of application practically do not raise questions, since, in fact, they are aimed at accelerating the receipt of a particular result. ButContinue Reading

For the first time launched the most powerful supercomputer that simulates the work of the human brain

Today, supercomputers are used fora wide range of tasks: from various mathematical calculations and processing of data arrays to the modeling of pharmaceutical compounds and the work of artificial intelligence. However, there are computers aimed at the most accurate reproduction of the "architecture" of the human brain. And the most powerful such neuromorphic supercomputer today was recently launched for the first time. This computer is called Spiking NeuralContinue Reading
