A schizofrenic braindump, a stream of cyberpunk, post-cyberpunk, neopunk, futurism and sci-fi items, inspiration for my writing and game design. Usually managed by my trusty auto-posting AI residing in a possum-brain in my kitchen sink.

Go ahead and inject into my brainfeed via Twitter or Tumblr submit. Aslo, go ahead and challenge my AI with a question (warning, it bites).

Kind of out there, but IBM is thinking to feed CPUs in server rooms with artificial blood for energy and heat exchange.

IBM unveils new concept for a future brain-like computer fed by electronic blood

KurzweilAI reports:

IBM has unveiled a prototype of a new brain-inspired computer powered by what it calls “electronic blood,” BBC News reports. The firm says it is learning from nature by building computers fueled and cooled by a liquid, like our minds. The human brain packs phenomenal computing power into a tiny space and uses only 20 watts of energy – an efficiency IBM is keen to match. Its new “redox flow” system pumps an electrolyte “blood” through a computer, carrying power in and taking heat out. A very basic model was demonstrated this week at IBM’s Zurich lab by Dr. Patrick Ruch and Dr. Bruno Michel.

Sharp adds “AI” to home electronics

These are products you can buy now in Japan (and I’m seriously considering their “emotional” vacuum robot).

The oven expressed its gratitude, saying, “Thank you for your delicate handling.” When the panel to start cooking meat was pushed, it advised, “You should serve cabbage or lettuce with the meat. You need to eat vegetables.”

The air cleaner tells users before automatically starting operations that, “I have found dirt in the air.” That is so users are not surprised when wind suddenly begins blowing, according to Sharp officials.

In addition, the cleaner informs users when its water storage tank used to humidify rooms gets empty by announcing, “I want to drink water.”

Bipedal humanoids are truly scary, in particular how they quiver when doing fast movements.
