The anternet - the signals network of ants - 3 views

  •  
    The algorithm that regulates the flow of ants is evolving toward minimizing operating costs rather than immediate accumulation.
  •  
    Turns out even ants can profit from a siesta on a hot day and they use network security and repair mechanisms. Maybe there is still something undiscovered that we can apply for our own networks.

MIT constructs synthetic analog computers inside living cells | ExtremeTech - 0 views

  •  
    Just a small step till we can compute trajectories in our blood cells...
  •  
    Really cool research. I think that the potential of analog computing has been neglected for quite a long time. Building the whole thing within a single cell makes it only more awesome.

Tracking Whale Sharks With Astronomical Algorithms | Wired Science | Wired.com - 3 views

  • equations were developed for astronomers using the Hubble telescope, Holmberg’s crew adapted them for biologists studying Earth’s biggest fishes
  • Holmberg also hopes that other programmers will follow his lead and lend their coding skills to worthy projects. “Pick the species or concern you’re most passionate about, pick the researchers who are working on it, and identify their technical needs,” he said. “I’m not even a great programmer. I’m underqualified but highly productive

Short-term meditation induces white matter changes in the anterior cingulate - PNAS - 3 views

  •  
    one more try to get you interested in this ... seems that it is slowly but surely moving into the domain of serious science ...
  •  
    Why don't you try this out? 10 minutes group meditation before every ACT meeting... Should be fun!
  •  
    Great, just great!! The conclusion seems to be "Thus IBMT could provide a means for improving self-regulation and perhaps reducing or preventing various mental disorders." Why all this neuro-bio-nonsense?? Wasn't this conclusion known before just using good old classic psychology and similar? Again one of these studies that thinks to provide new evidence just because they made a boring brain scan...

Open Source Software Meets Do-It-Yourself Biology - 1 views

  •  
    "As the shift to open source software continues, computational biology will become even more accessible, and even more powerful, while intellectual property and other bureaucracies continue to hobble traditional forms of research."

    Spot on, I'm very glad to see this happening :)
