Alan Turing, known as the “Father of Computing”, was a computer science pioneer and World War II codebreaker. In 1950 he established the “Turing Test” in a paper of his, which sought to determine whether or not machines could think.
NASA successfully transmitted a 175-megabit video from the International Space Station to Earth on Thursday using the Optical Payload for Lasercomm Science (OPALS). This could revolutionize the way NASA receives data from space.
Robots may have garnered the reputation of being rather stoic, dry creatures, but rest assured, scientists have concocted a new humanoid that's bringing new emotion to computerized droids.
There's a bit of gossip floating around about Apple's iWatch, though the annual Worldwide Developers Conference left little time to discuss this future piece of technology.
The Digital Age has spurred an unprecedented rise in the use of social media. Some major news outlets and organizations use various platforms to get their information out to the public, but health policy researchers lack the confidence to use them.

Researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) are working on a new robot inspired by the velociraptor dinosaur that can run up to 28.6 miles per hour; it's yet another robot that can outperform humans in some way.
Perhaps certain settings can affect your mood, but could colored lights alter your metabolism?
Say hello to the Raptor: a robot created by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) that runs like a 70-million-year-old dinosaur.
The National Science Foundation has awarded Boston College with a two-year, $200,000 grant that will allow Professor G. Michael Barnett and undergraduate researchers to use technology for disseminating pertinent environmental data to the public.
New tools could help our world's threatened species, and they could help preserve biodiversity across the globe. Scientists have found that tools to collect and share information could help stem the loss of Earth's species.
