The two fundamental problems which persists for artificial intelligence in robotics are Vision and Common Sense.
He argues that even if Moore's law holds for 50 more years, it will just reach our range of capabilities. But, he predicts that by 20 years the devices made with silicon will not be able to hold it. Since the thinnest silicon layer would be 5 atoms thick.
He suggests that the future is Quantum computing.
See the interesting interview video...
I think I am poor in knowledge about these robotics and in depth idea about even computer technology. I was not even familiar to this Michiko Kaku-may be thats because of I am from different area of Science. But I should have known this.
New technolgy coming soon and soon always fascinates me. In my opinion-all technology and science should serve for mankind. This is what I hope and expect in this case also. Scientists are those who can predict, have dream and imagine new things. I think these quantum computer are not impossible.

In couple of previous videos in Palai Palo, we have talked about natural beauty of Nepal. This time also, I am taking about it. The video presented here is a documentary type video prepared by Nepal Forum of Environment Journalists.It takes us to Dolpa, a remote place in North -Western part of Nepal in Karnali region. In spite of its richness in natural beauty and resources, people are facing basic human needs.
Enjoy the video and don't forget to leave a comment.

The next one is moving through the liquid.
The next step would be to add some bits of intelligence onto them!!!

Its good way to help people in developing countries and get some sort of satisfaction.
Enjoy the video.

g-speak overview 1828121108 from john underkoffler on Vimeo.
Dubbed g-speak, the mind bending OS combines "gestural i/o, recombinant networking, and real-world pixels," to deliver what the creators call "the first major step in [a] computer interface since 1984."
Watch the video!

He does the calculations on his head and can multiply even 5 digit numbers on the fly!
Certainly, he has mastered some tricks of numbers. It reminds me the guy who could remember x digits of pi 3.1416.... (x =500 ? I even don't remember it! ) (for me x = 5).
Certainly, visualization is very stronger means of learning.

The above video shows the levitation effect observed when the magnetic field is cooled below its critical point. Also known as Meissner effect.
Figure below shows the Meissner effect in which the super conductor cooled below the critical temperature end up repelling all the magnetic field lines.
Last semester, I had to teach a lab with this one as an example. Though, determining the critical point for the superconducting material was horribly hard (as they felt). The students really had fun to watch the effect. They were interested in what caused that effect and some other examples like floating train simply amazed them.

Running simulations and performing different high memory crunching math has been really easy and fast with the use of GPU, which can replace 100's of CPU by just one desktop GPU. The new method for solving the present challenge using GPU has made a way to solve different big systems (molecules) in very less time and money as compared to what we have been doing lately using CPU's.

BloggerDai says: This video shows typical Nepali daily life and can be regarded as a nice example for art choreography. However, I am quite sure how much it is related to teej.
The floor painted with red-soil (rato-mato), the sitting in sukul, namlo, typical dresses: WOW!
Teej is regarded as auspious occasion by many Nepali Women.
Dance and the Red color make the celebration memorable each year. However, I had very less opportunities to explore the in-depth details of the festival TEEJ.

Nepal: Heaven on earth!
The video was made by Nepal Tourism board. Has various background music which gives sense of meditation and peace to soul. The graphics is not so bad and I can guarantee the level of satisfaction would reach to higest level by being able to see it by one's own eye: Live!
The touch of air, the smell of local soil and the sounds of birds will make anyone forget pain and give inner peace.
We are lucky to be born in such a wonderland.
The hope is that one day, one day will come when it would be more secure and more comfortable to visit Nepal. Making the Heaven accessible to all!
The video presents the tourists attraction in Nepal. I hope it helps to promote tourism industry. It gives you some idea about cultures, religions, natural beauty, hospitality, hotels etc. In my opinion the official video clip made by Nepal tourism board should not be just like this showing photos. I would appreciate it they had used real short video clops to describe the things.
Any way there is no doubt, Nepal is a great place for tourists and we can make it better, hopefully in near future(?).

This is great!
Touristic opportunities for Nepal can not be under-estimated.
Once peace prevails, we will do very good in touristic activities. The money for that can be used to develop hydro-electricity projects and keep Nepal Brighter.

In one of the sequel, the small bots search for Tom Cruise. Tom hides in the tub; because he had left a bubble, the robot decides to run an experiment. It then sends some electric currents through the tub. Shocked by it, he comes on surface where he faces the bots.
I remember this scene because it involves a high level of science fiction. The robots capable of spreading like bugs in the house, to map and to search the desired places and having capacity to run experiments. Moreover, highly organized by virtue of the communications.
The following video presents communicating parts. The importance lies in the fact that they can re-assemble.

Mandelbrot set is a set of points in the complex plane, the boundary of which forms a fractal. In the presented video, a careful zoom in reveals nice patterns into the amazing World of Fractals. More you zoom in farther you are out into another world!

Firefox is a nice browser. (However, I also like Opera Browser and Flock Browser too).
This tutorial is really useful for everyone. Knowing the shortcuts and how to use it efficiently will be really helpful.
So, I am putting this one as the first video in here.
The recent release of Firefox 3 was the hot cake in several places. I have downloaded it and you can see my certificate here .... :)
