Is EA Finally Listening To Gamers?

By his own admission, Andrew Wilson still “geeks out” at EA’s press conferences, despite his position as the company’s CEO demanding that he take centre stage. When we meet after the Gamescom media briefing, he enthuses in great detail and at considerable length about a FIFA 15 video demonstrating the capabilities of the new game’s goalkeepers. What that team has accomplished since he ascended to executive level, Wilson says, never fails to make him smile. And Wilson has spent...

Astronomers Confirm Medium Size Black Holes

Black holes do indeed come in three sizes: small, medium and extra large, a new study suggests. Astronomers have studied many black holes at either size extreme — “stellar-mass” black holes, which are a few dozen times as weighty as the sun, and supermassive black holes, which can contain millions or billions of times the mass of the sun and lurk at the heart of most, if not all, galaxies. Researchers have spotted hints of much rarer medium-size black holes, which harbor between 100...

Harvard Developing Self-Organizing Robots

Harvard researchers have developed a process for thousands of robots to coordinate their actions so that they can complete a single task, such as arrange themselves into a star formation. The work, led by Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences’ computer science professor Radhika Nagpal, is part of an ongoing effort to investigate ways that machines can mimic biological processes, using AI (artificial intelligence) algorithms. The researchers built 1,024 small, mobile, three-legged...

Could CFC’s Help With The Search For Alien Life?

Chemicals once found in hairspray may serve as signs of alien life on faraway worlds, researchers say. These compounds may reveal that extraterrestrials have disastrously altered their planets, scientists added. To detect biomarkers, or signs of life, on distant worlds, scientists have often focused on molecules such as oxygen, which theoretically disappears quickly from atmospheres unless life is present to provide a constant supply of the gas. By looking at light passing through atmospheres of...
