Toyota turns to ‘guardian angel’ self-driving cars

Toyota turns to ‘guardian angel’ self-driving cars But as-needed assistive driving has more promise for the near future because of the challenge of switching quickly from fully autonomous to driver-back-in-control.There Toyota announced the guardian-angel project, reiterated its long-term commitment to fully autonomous driving, and said Toyota will use three R&D facilities in the US, including a new facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Phase change memory can operate thousands of times faster than current RAM

Phase change memory can operate thousands of times faster than current RAM Conventional DRAM operates at nanosecond timescales, which means phase change memory could theoretically be thousands of times faster than conventional RAM.In theory, phase change memory could eventually present a solution to the so-called memory wall, or memory gap.

Extreme science: the biggest, fastest and hottest breakthroughs of 2016

Extreme science: the biggest, fastest and hottest breakthroughs of 2016 Where LCLS-II is like a microscope, used to image specific tiny things, proton colliders like the LHC are closer to sledgehammers.Remember that photons and electrons have both wavelike and particle-like properties, and they both have the mass-related property of momentum.

The most absurd announcement videos from college football's National Signing Day

The most absurd announcement videos from college football's National Signing Day Wednesday marks National Signing Day, when the top high school football recruits officially commit to the university they'll call home for the next phase of their career.But man, Cardinal coaches probably aren't too stoked about their top recruit soaring risking his safety just to announce where he'll play.

Here's what a 5,000 year old beer recipe tastes like

Here's what a 5,000 year old beer recipe tastes like Did you know that the Chinese brewed beer about 5,000 years ago?A group of researchers at Stanford were able to piece together the ancient recipe by analysing a yellowish residue found in 5,000-year-old Chinese clay funnels.

Stanford Students Took a Crack at Brewing That 5000 Year Old Chinese Beer Recipe

Stanford Students Took a Crack at Brewing That 5000 Year Old Chinese Beer Recipe Last spring, archaeologist made a surprising discovery in China: a 5,000 year old recipe for beer.So what do you do when you’re an archaeology professor, and you uncover an ancient recipe for beer lying around?

Stanford archaeologists re-created a 5,000-year-old Chinese beer recipe

Stanford archaeologists re-created a 5,000-year-old Chinese beer recipe So how do you think 5,000-year-old beer would taste?“The beer we discovered at the site of Mijiaya was a multi-ingredient brew,” Wang told Digital Trends.

The Future Of Innovation Is Innovation: A Day At Stanford's Sports-Business Conference

The Future Of Innovation Is Innovation: A Day At Stanford's Sports-Business Conference As I got lost looking for the Stanford Graduate School of Business’s Sports Innovation Conference, I noticed that every superfluous lawn next to a dorm building seemed to be perfectly mown.” This content that I witnessed was as much about business, and the business of business, as it was about on-the-field sports.

Jetpack is a Stanford startup looking to bring you necessities in a pinch

Jetpack is a Stanford startup looking to bring you necessities in a pinch From your ever-changing class schedule to your ever-shifting dorm room, these four years aren’t exactly about permanence.Taking this concept and turning it into a business is Jetpack, a new app that launched out of Stanford to bring students travel-sized versions of necessities like cold medication, energy drinks, and hangover cures (it’s college, after all).

Stanford researchers accidentally discover a whole new role for the cerebellum

Stanford researchers accidentally discover a whole new role for the cerebellum Scientists from Stanford have stumbled onto a new and different role for the cerebellum — and they found it while they were looking for something else entirely.Some granule cells lit up as expected, when a mouse was planning and executing arm movements.

Hacked-together Lego Mindstorms bot kit brings science to a classroom near you

Hacked-together Lego Mindstorms bot kit brings science to a classroom near you Stanford researchers have hacked the Lego Mindstorms platform as a springboard to create a liquid-handling robotics kit, using inexpensive, off-the-shelf parts.” To fill that vacuum, the team created their own desktop liquid-handling robots that approach the performance of the far more costly automation systems found at universities and biotech labs, Riedel-Kruse said.

Breakthrough Stanford experiment shakes up our model of the brain's spatial orientation system

Breakthrough Stanford experiment shakes up our model of the brain's spatial orientation system Your brain has a built-in GPS system, with bespoke cells for speed, location, direction and more.Now a group of scientists from Stanford have further advanced our understanding of the brain’s spatial orientation system — by shaking up our models in a big way.

Watch Stanford's Freaky New Soft Robot Grow Itself

Watch Stanford's Freaky New Soft Robot Grow Itself One memorable toy from the collective childhood of my generation is the water wiggler — otherwise known as the water tube toy, water snake, or those weird squidgy jelly tube things.Applied robotics researchers at Stanford have developed a soft-bodied robot that can turn itself inside out, and they hope to use it for disaster relief.

Passive System Cools Buildings By Bouncing Heat Into Outer Space

Passive System Cools Buildings By Bouncing Heat Into Outer Space When you’ve got more recycleables than you can fit in the your blue bin, you send them to the recycling center.So where do you send heat when you’ve got too much of that?
