Exploring bleeding edge experiments, oddities, new and bizarre dicoveries, and fact-checking conspiracy theories since 2008. No question is out of bounds and no topic is too strange for a deep dive.
Turns out artificial intelligence needs a nap every once in a while to stay accurate, and that may tell us something fundamental about our own minds.
Far too many of us tend to accept the idea that smartphones are addictive and actively ruining the brains of heavy users. But studies into the idea find little to prove this notion.
Dive into the shocking experiment that came eerily close to reanimating zombie pig brains and consider the exciting and terrifying consequences of the discovery it made.
Far from being a high precision for computing your way through life, brains are messy and function more on recognition and guesswork, and understanding that is important for the future of medicine.
North Korea's computer-based insult towards South Korea's head of state was supposed to be meaningless but offensive nonsense. Too bad pop sci writers took the bait and tried to explain it anyway.
The quest to create an accurate simulation of the brain continues. But what will be this project's most realistic outcome?
Machine vision still has a long way to go before it can do something as simple as identify objects at a slight angle.
Both brains and microchips try to find the most efficient way to conduct electrical signals. And that has a profound effect on how brains grow and evolve.
Famed physicist Roger Penrose and an Arizona doctor are claiming that our brains are quantum computer in a white paper that will surely be seized by the woo faithful as proof of "quantum consciousness."
A study of brain cancer patients in Italy shows the neural epicenters of spiritual experiences and religious belief.
