Worm uploaded to a computer and trained to balance a pole
Is it a computer program or a living being? At TU Wien (Vienna), the boundaries have become blurred. The neural system of a nematode was translated into computer code – and then the virtual worm was taught amazing tricks.
It is not much to look at: the nematode C. elegans is about one millimetre in length and is a very simple organism. But for science, it is extremely interesting. C. elegans is the only living being whose neural system has been analysed completely. It can be drawn as a circuit diagram or reproduced by computer software, so that the neural activity of the worm is simulated by a computer program.
Such an artificial C. elegans has now been trained at TU Wien (Vienna) to perform a remarkable trick: The computer worm has learned to balance a pole at the tip of its tail.
if you build it they will come - we all laughed at the iphone facial capture saddo....
Nobel prize-winning Stanford physics professor Robert Laughlin designed a theoretical system that stores electricity as heat (in high temperature molten salt) and cold (in a low temperature liquid similar to the antifreeze you have in your car). The energy stored in salt can be kept for days or even weeks, until it’s needed.

- The UK, Europe and US have had fairly pervasive CCTV coverage for decades now, which wasn't great ...detritus
- ... but tying that to AI in the cloud with essentially infinite proessing capacity is... well, terrifying. We are, as you say, fucked.detritus
- CCTV was always best used retroactively to solve crimes. Now they can be used to directly limit and control people in advance. I want to move to The Falklands.detritus
