While the Australian Research Council considers its policy on open-access publication and others within the scientific community call for the increased sharing of scientific data, the British are already a step ahead.
This autonomous driving system, developed by Nissan, can automatically drive and park your car in a shopping center parking lot.
The EV used in this demo, the NSC-2015, contains technology for recognizing the environment around the car using all-round cameras, and a remote monitoring system using 4G communication. When the driver gets out at the entrance to a parking lot, they can use a smartphone to instruct the car to park automatically. Then, the car automatically drives to the parking area, finds a space, and parks.
Researchers have discovered a way to generate new human neurons from another type of adult cell found in our brains. The discovery, reported in the October 5th issue of Cell Stem Cell, a Cell Press publication, is one step toward cell-based therapies for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
A team of paleontologists and engineers has found that duck-billed dinosaurs had an amazing capacity to chew tough and abrasive plants with grinding teeth more complex than those of cows, horses, and other well-known modern grazers. Their study, which is published today in the journal Science, is the first to recover material properties from fossilized teeth.
NASA?s Curiosity rover is set to scoop up her 1st sample of Martian soil this weekend at a soil patch nicknamed ?Rocknest?. This marks a major milestone on the path to delivering Mars material to the sample acquisition and processing system for high powered analysis by the robots chemistry labs and looking for the ingredients of life, said the science and engineering team leading the mission at a media briefing on Thursday, Oct 4.
During the heady, pre-IPO days of Facebook, the tech world was being told that because half a billion people were registered on the site, not only would it become the platform for virtually any business venture or marketplace, it would also harness the contents of its massive data farms to drive customers to the right [...]

Hate the Lakers? Do the Celtics make you want to hurl? Whether you like someone can affect how your brain processes their actions, according to new research from the Brain and Creativity Institute at USC.
Most of the time, watching someone else move causes a 'mirroring' effect ? that is, the parts of our brains responsible for motor skills are activated by watching someone else in action.
From Discover Technology: When bacteria start building cities, we're in trouble. The normally free-floating cells can gather in large numbers and secrete a slimy matrix that they live within. These communities are called biofilms, and they grow wherever there is a surface to support them
