AI computer joins millions of Chinese students taking fearsome entrance exam

Among the almost 10 million students taking nationwide college entrance exams in China this week was an artificial intelligence program. The tests also saw authorities deploy facial recognition and drones, in an effort to clamp down on high-tech cheating. The exam, colloquially known as the ‘gaokao’ in China, was held over Wednesday and Thursday across most …

Scientists Are About to Perform an Experiment to See if The Human Mind Is Bound by Physics

Perhaps one of the most intriguing and interesting phenomena in quantum physics is what Einstein referred to as a “spooky action at a distance” – also known as quantum entanglement. This quantum effect is behind what makes quantum computers work, as quantum bits (qubits) generally rely on entanglement to process data and information. It’s also the …
