Researchers have developed a new kind of neural circuit that uses memristor technology to replicate the complex human brain. The "intelligent" circuit was able to perform some human tasks that computers usually struggle at, such as image classification.
Ever thought about having the powers or abilities of a superhero? We can improve our abilities by training and effort, but enhancing the human condition really has biological limits. What if we could exceed the constraints of our biology?

A new study conducted on a dead elephant has demonstrated to researchers that elephants sing in the same way that humans do. The vocal sound is so low that it is inaudible to humans, but it is, nonetheless there.
A new study shows that dogs can "catch" a yawn from the sound of a human being yawning. The study showed that dogs imitate yawns more readily from their owners than from strangers. Researchers say this suggests dogs have the capacity for empathy.
Thousands of people gathered in China to set a new world record for the biggest human domino chain. There were 10,267 people who sat cross-legged and slowly collapsed backwards, one after another, to be part of the record-breaking event.
