  1. Some Bacteria in our Guts have been with us Even Before we were HumanRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday Jul 23 | I4U Future Technology News

    New research suggets that certain gut bateria passed down to us over million of years since before we were human A huge collection of microbes live in and on human body and a new research suggests some of those microbes have been with us even before we evolved into human. Science says humans, gorillas and primates like chimpanzees and bonobos evolved from single common ancestor called African apes.


  2. Mental and Physical Exercises Boost Brain in Different WaysRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jul 19 | I4U Future Technology News

    While cognitive brain training can improve your planning or problem-solving ability, aerobic activity can boost memory, new research has found. "Aerobic activity and reasoning training are both valuable tools that give your brain a boost in different ways," said study co-author Mark D'Esposito, Professor at University of California - Berkeley in the US.


  3. This Robot Intentionally Makes People BleedRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 13, 2016 | I4U Future Technology News

    Although robots have long been a part of our lives, we have long been hesitant to create a robot that is "dangerous" to humans because it goes against a "law" penned by science-fiction icon Isaac Asimov in his 1942 short story Runaround. He gave three easy to understand rules, the second of which states: "A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law."


  4. Copper essential for burning fat: StudyRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 11, 2016 | I4U Future Technology News

    Washington, June 12 Copper plays a critical role in metabolism by helping move fat out of cells and into the blood stream for use as energy, a study said. Findings about copper and fat cells, called adipocytes, by the group from the University of California, Berkeley, will be published in the journal Nature Chemical Biology in July, Xinhua news agency reported.

  6. MyShake App Turns Smartphones into Earthquake DetectorsRead the original story w/Photo

    May 21, 2016 | I4U Future Technology News

    Of the 170,000 people around the world who have downloaded MyShake since February, 70,000 provided location information, shown on this world map. Researchers on Sunday released a Japanese version of an Android app that takes information from smartphones to detect earthquakes and eventually warn users of impending jolts from nearby quakes.


  7. How Brain Controls Vision and What We Miss to SeeRead the original story w/Photo

    May 11, 2016 | I4U Future Technology News

    A team of US researchers has come up with a rough map of part of the brain that controls vision and leaves things out even when they are plainly in sight. The frontal cortex is often seen as our "thinking cap," associated with thinking and making decisions.


  8. How Mother's Milk Boosts Baby's ImmunityRead the original story w/Photo

    May 8, 2016 | I4U Future Technology News

    Mother's milk gives babies antibodies along with microbes to support the infant's gut immune responses, new research says. Immune antibodies from mother's breast milk interact with the immune system of the newborn to help shape lifelong immune responses for establishing boundaries and balance between gut microbes and the mammalian host.


  9. This Semantic Atlas of the Brain can Lead to Mind-reading MachineRead the original story w/Photo

    May 1, 2016 | I4U Future Technology News

    Imagine a brain-machine interface that does not just figure out what sounds you want to make, but what you want to say. Researchers have taken a step in that direction by building a "semantic atlas" that shows in vivid colors how the brain organizes different words by their meanings.


  10. Giant black hole found in an unlikely placeRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 8, 2016 | I4U Future Technology News

    New York, April 8 Astronomers from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the Gemini Telescope in Hawaii have uncovered a supermassive black hole in an unlikely location, indicating that these monster objects may be more common than once thought. The near-record breaking black hole, weighing 17 billion suns, was discovered in the centre of a galaxy, in a sparsely populated area of the universe.


  11. Scientists Build Cockroach Robot That May Help in Future DisastersRead the original story w/Photo

  12. MIT Scientists Create Algorithm That can Make Photographs More MemorableRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 20, 2015 | I4U Future Technology News

    Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have designed an algorithm that can predict memorability of a photograph at near-human levels, meaning it can tell which faces, scenes and objects in photographs are more likely remembered by humans. "Understanding memorability can help us make systems to capture the most important information, or, conversely, to store information that humans will most likely forget," said Aditya Khosla, lead author of the study.


  13. World's Most Sensitive Dark Matter Detector's Sensitivity ImprovedRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 15, 2015 | I4U Future Technology News

    An adjunct professor at Montana State University , Elizabeth Freedman Fowler, and her team has found a new dinosaur species which fills the gap between the duckbilled species and another descendant with largest crest. The new dinosaur is named Probrachylophosaurus Bergei by Fowler, and her findings are published in the journal PLOS ONE.


  17. What Really Killed the Dinosaurs?Read the original story w/Photo

    Oct 2, 2015 | I4U Future Technology News

    A massive asteroid struck earth some 66 million years ago and set off a string of volcanic eruptions that killed off all of the dinosaurs according to a new report from US researchers. The cause of the demise of the dinosaurs isn't universally agreed upon between scientists, and the latest findings, according to Discovery News , suggest that there were actually two events: the asteroid and the resulting volcanic eruptions happened together.
