What Made Sir Albert Einstein a True Genius in Reality?

The great physicist, Sir Albert Einstein was a true genius. The Nobel laureate discovered several iconic theories including the great theory of relativity and photogenic effects. This paved the way for several other inventions in the years that followed. But what made him so? Did his intellectual capacity related to the structure inside his mind?

Einstein’s brain has been a matter of study for several researchers. They studied several images of Einstein’s brain that found extra folds and convolutions inside his mind responsible for his outstanding intellectual abilities.

In 1955, following the death of Albert Einstein, his family members donated the brain for further scientific study by lab. Harvey, the researcher, studied 240 blocks of Einstein’s brain.

The Nobel Prize winning scientist’s brain has a greater density of neurons higher than the normal level. Einstein’s brain cells transmitted nerve impulses to neurons at a faster rate. His parietal lobes were directly responsible for his incredible ability to conceptualize physics problems.

Research Study on Albert Einstein’s Brain

In 2010, the entire research materials on the great scientist’s brain were transferred to US Army’s National Museum of Health and Medicine (NMHM) in Maryland, US. In the following years, several other scientists also did an extensive study on Einstein’s brain.

Researchers have come to a unanimous finding that Einstein’s grey matter weighed 1.2 kg but features of regular convolutions and folds were not there. Falk, one of such researchers, claimed that the enlarged regions linked to the face and tongue, related to Einstein’s famous quote that his thinking was often “muscular” rather than in words.

Albert Galaburda, a neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School in Boston, says “some combination of a special brain and the environment he lived in made him a true genius”. Einstein’s parents also played a key role towards making him a legend. They were very nurturing, and encouraged him to become independent and creative with a scientific temper of mind.

Albert Einstein: The True Legend, No Doubt

Einstein invented the famous concept of E=mc² and the Theory of Relativity. He also played violin like an expert musician. However, he couldn’t perform well at studies and routine examination for which he appeared at multiple times before getting a degree.

In a nutshell, Einstein’s brain wasn’t similar to other humans. It appeared different from an average human’s grey matter. His outstanding accomplishment and ability to study humongous amount of scientific data was possible due to a difference in his brain’s composition and structure called the Corpus Callosum.

The full research study on it is titled, “The Corpus Callosum of Albert Einstein’s Brain: Another Clue to His High Intelligence was published in a scientific journal a few years back. It came to the conclusion that the left and right hemispheres of Einstein’s brain were atypical and had enhanced coordination between them.

This internal connectivity of Einstein’s corpus callosum made him a legend in its truest sense. The scientists claimed it was responsible behind Einstein’s supreme Intellectual capabilities and skills to a gigantic level.

Why There Are No More Einsteins & Edisons Today?

Why There Are No More Einsteins & Edisons Today?

Inquisitiveness is the stepping stone towards success. All great scientists and inventors had that quintessential fire in their bellies to succeed and contribute their bit to the world. This eventually helped them cross all hurdles at ease reaching a pinnacle of success.

Those were the days when research meant true observation of nature, environment and things around us. There was no internet, social media or even such a humongous amount of publications that we see around us these days. However, despite all the modern day facilities, there are now no more Einsteins and Edisons today.

Somewhere the essence of innovation and observation is lost in this mechanized era. Now, people don’t have much patience to observe things that happen in our daily lives and question them. The success of Einstein, other scientists, and inventors, was their desires to add values and meaning to the lives of the people. Contrarily, these days, most people are self-centered and don’t have time to think about others.

The quality of Thinking has deteriorated now!

There was a time when people had to discover newer and newer things from limited resources unlike today when lesser and lesser things are being discovered despite having all the amenities. Obviously, the quality of thinking has deteriorated badly in the last few decades. Both schools and colleges have failed to inculcate right values and level of thinking among students.

Mediocrity as the new norm now. If you are too much intellectual then you might stand alone sans any friends. The ensuing cut-throat competition and survival battle in our daily lives have shifted our focus to a basic question than trying something new and unprecedented.

Why There Are No More Einsteins & Edisons Today?

Edison once said that he didn’t consider his 10,000 times failure to discover a thing as a letdown rather he construed it as his personal success to have found out 10,000 ways that a thing won’t work. Does the current generation have that much patience and perseverance to carry on with experience without any guarantee of success? Of course not.

Disseminating the Rights Thoughts and Values in Our Future Generation

We definitely need to infuse a fresh zeal of intellectualism in our gen next. We shouldn’t content ourselves with mediocrity rather we must inculcate the appropriate education in a future generation that they should be able to do things in a creative manner independently.

Enhancing creative thinking among people can be accomplished in two ways; the first one is to let a person explore his inner calling and tries several things and generates as many ideas as he can. Thereafter, he should pursue an idea that he finds suitable.

The second option is to let a person link several of his thoughts into one and then find a meaningful solution to it. Many famous inventors used this approach. Even the great Einstein found a close relationship between trains and the motion of light in his iconic theory of relativity. Exchange of thoughts and creativity is utmost important to develop a perfect scientific temper among the people.

Most importantly, irrespective of what we study and where we study, our individual desire to discover something exceptional and extraordinary is vital. All great scientists have succeeded because of their personal wish to change the norm of the society for which they stood alone focusing full time and attention on inventions and research. Some of these famous scientists include the names of Galileo, Copernicus, Thomas Alva Edison, Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton among others.

Learning Teamwork from Ants

Learning Teamwork from Ants

Image source: colourbox

Ants are the most organized and intelligent creatures. They work round the clock and most of the time they work as a team. This is the primary reason why ants get success while carrying the work load of something that is ten times heavier than their individual weight.

It is only through team work that a colony of ants could easily lift things that are way more than their collective weights together. According to a research, an efficient group-level process can arise from brief amplification of individual-based knowledge. The study also observed that when ants collectively carry a large load then it requires high level of coordination and someone within the ants acts as a leader in such a time.

In order to ensure smoother teamwork, the large degree of conformity is a necessity as it boosts the efficiency such endeavors. We can explain the same with an example of how a swarm of ants carries “a dead cockroach” from one place to another because all the ants have a collective goal and well-specified object.

Learning Teamwork from Ants

The above research also shed some light on the combined force of the ants that determine the speed of their workloads. Every individual ant tries their best to carry a load. This Ising model explains that carrying ants demonstrate a sort of social conformism allowing a single ant to optimally lead the load – just as what a leader does in reality.

Top 5 Teamwork Lessons You Learn From Ants

  • Ants Never Fear the size of their workload.
  • Teamwork is the reason behind the success of ants.
  • Ants are workaholic and work round the clock.
  • Ants are well organized. They know how to pursue their goals.
  • Ants are cautious and far-sighted. They collect their food in advance even before the actual rainy season in sight.
  • They don’t leave their work undone. Once an army of ants engage in an activity they fully complete it.

The Research Experiment

Ring-shaped food items were placed at a distance of quite a few meters from the ant’s nest. On finding that a food was placed near them ants began their cooperative transport. Soon, they surrounded the same and each ant contributes towards moving the object.

With more ants joining the experiment, the objects were moving faster. Slowly and slowly, the food items were dragged near to their nest. Eventually, researchers found that it was a full teamwork and the responsible role of each ant that help them move the object near to ant’s nest. When an individual ant felt tired a new ant joined the work replacing him – such is the level of mutual cooperation and coordination that you find within ants.

Talking about Ant’s teamwork, Prof. Nir Gov of the Weizmann Institute’s Chemical Physics Departmentremarked “In this system, the wisdom does not come from crowds. Rather, some individuals supply the ‘brains’ and the role of the group is to amplify the ‘muscle’ power of savvy individuals so they can actually move the load.”  No doubt, we have a lot to learn from ants day in and day out !

Five Tips for Responsible Use of Social Media

Top 5 Simple Tips For Responsible Use of Social Media

Image source: Youtube

As per its nomenclature, “social media” is something that is intertwined with the concept of social and society. These days, social media has evolved out as the best way to meet new people, socialise and share thoughts. However, just as everything has its negative effects – similarly social media has side effects too. Many people actually use it as a tool to harass others by way of cyberbullying which is inherently antisocial, wrong, often illegal and immoral as well.

There are some basic etiquette that every social media user must either follow or don’t use social media. Social networking sites basically serve the purpose of lending helping hand to people. But often the reverse happens. It turns out to be a place where people vent out their anger and go away anonymously. However, due to massive rise cyber crime cases across the globe, police are now more active towards nabbing these cyber criminals.

Top 5 Things You Should Never Post On Social Media

Illegal Activity: Intent is everything. If your intent is to do something suspicious or you wish to indulge in illegal activity then please stay away from social media and surrender yourself before the cops by confessing your nefarious future plan. Then the court and cops will guide you further according to the merit of the case. No, social media is strictly no-no for anti-social and anti-human like you.

Get away from this platform and don’t defame it. What constitutes illegal can vary according to the country you reside in but certain social media rules are universal;

You should not share something that creates mutual hatred among people.

You can’t share a live crime scene without informing the law enforcement agencies about the same.

You can’t go on abusing people on social media for any reason whatsoever.

You shouldn’t insult any religion or try to incite people by hurting things of their faiths and beliefs.

You shouldn’t stalk a certain man or woman in an unfriendly or scary manner especially when he or she doesn’t like it.

You should never post pictures or videos about adult content on social media because several teens and adolescents are also on social media. Adult content might not be suitable for certain age-group people.

You shouldn’t promote consumption of drugs on social media irrespective of where you reside.

Influence: Social media is a big platform to influence people. But that doesn’t mean you should randomly rant things that make people feel depressed, dejected and upset. Continued reading of negative thoughts could impact mind leading to the extent of suicide or homicide in certain cases.

Maintain Courtesy: Even if you are annoyed at somebody. Don’t need to show it on social media; keep it personal. Everyone has a problem with something and somebody but that doesn’t mean you should post everything on social media without trying to resolve the same from your end.

Confidential Details: Don’t share your banking details and debit/ credit card information on social media for fun ever. It can be problematic for you and your family. Internet hackers wait for such things so that they can then use their tricks to siphon off money from your bank account without your knowledge. Always remember your bank balances are just digits on computers.

Social Checks Ins: In recent times, social check ins option are there in facebook to let people know in which theatre or restaurant you are going in. It is not right to share your social check ins especially when you are alone or far away from your home location. You don’t know who among your followers and fans might be predators in the disguise of a social media user waiting to harm you.

Use social media responsible. Be safe and raise awareness of the people too about this sensitive matter by sharing this article now.

Elon Musk Is Set to Merge Human Brains with AI in Neuralink Project

Elon Musk Is Set to Merge Human Brains with AI in Neuralink Project

Hold your breath and believe the impossible. Business baron Elon Musk launched Neuralink his latest venture that aims to merge the human brain with Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is certain now that the exploration of the possibility of merging computers with human brain like a brain-computer interface has already begun.

The company will pursue “neural lace” scientific innovation process that implants tiniest electrodes in human brains so that uploading and downloading of human thoughts could be easily done!

No, it is not a science fiction. The detailed report of the same was published a few days back confirming it. If Neuralink project becomes successful then it is expected to improve the memory and concentration level of the people using it through Artificial Intelligence.

Neuralink Is Thinking Ahead of Its TIme

Currently, Elon Musk is also spearheading some other ambitious scientific projects like SpaceX and Tesla. A few days back, he stated “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence. It’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output,” when a journalist asked Elon Musk about the Neuralink project.

Electrode arrays are already used to treat neurological disorder and imbalances like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer and epilepsy among other diseases affecting the working of human brains in one way or other. Neuralink has now joined hands with the Kernel, a renowned biotechnology firm to give a massive impetus to their research.

Kernel has been at the front foot of medical research on human brains with new surgery techniques and innovations for the last few years together. “We know if we put a chip in the brain and release electrical signals, that we can ameliorate symptoms of Parkinson’s,” the Kernel official stated last year. “This has been done for spinal cord pain, obesity, anorexia… what hasn’t been done is the reading and writing of neural code, he added further while also confirming the news that Neauralink and Kernel are working together on this research.

So Close Yet So Far…..

  • Researchers have to find a safer way to implant electrodes inside human brains.
  • Electrodes must keep the person’s mental balance stable.
  • Not possible for any science to find out what does each neuron thinking at a particular point of time. It is impossible to decide if the neurons in the brain are asking a person to read or play!
  • Inserting any alien things inside human brains is risky. It is not like a heart where pacemaker can be inserted if required.
  • A normal person would avoid getting his skull opened, only the adventurous mind people and his family members will give their nod to undergo this type of operation where a chip will be inserted to connect AI to human brain.

Some neuro scientists claim that still very limited research has been done until now to understand how the neurons work inside human brains for communication purposes. So, Neuralink will be a difficult aim to accomplish.

Neuralink, the California-based neuroscience Company, is still in its nascent stage but making a rapid advancement in medical science. The Company is now all set to develop cranial systems to treat serious brain diseases while also working a way to attach AI to a human brain. If Neuralink receives government approval then it could be a path breaking leap into the advanced neurological science.

Bees Are Super Intelligent & Learn Tasks from Other Bees!

Bees Are Super Intelligent to Learn Tasks from Other Bees!

Bees might have little brains, but that are capable enough to do lots of things. They are far more intelligent than what humans assumed them to be. The latest research conducted at Queen Mary University, London, showed that Bees are quick learners and learn from the things around the environment. Then they disseminate the message within other bees too.

According to Loukola, one of the researchers on the subject, “I think the most important result in our case was that bumblebees can not just copy others but they can improve upon what they are learning. This is of course amazing for small-brained insects — even for us, it’s difficult to improve on something when we are copying others, she added.”

The experiment conducted by the scientists was to judge whether bees would be able to move a yellow ball into the center of a platform or not. Surprisingly they did. Bees saw the ball move, and then they tried doing the same. Scientists used magnets and sugar water (reward) while carrying out this experiment. When Bees saw that some sort of reward was there, they successfully completed the assignment.

Some Amazing Things about Bee Brains that We Don’t Know

Bumblebees pollinate nearly one-third of the total food crops of the world.

Despite being a smaller in size, a bumblebee’s brain is a lot denser than other mammals and humans.

Bees have an outstanding ability to smell and see things correctly using their sensory system in brains.

They have good memory and an ability to recognize various colors too.

A bee brain can calculate around 9 trillion plus things in a second which is far more than a computer that can count only 15 billion computations in a second.

What Does This Research Prove

Satisfied with the result, Reese Halter, a conservation biologist explained, “Bees are highly intelligent creatures. They use their neurons in their brain as efficiently as any other animal on the globe. There’s little under a million neurons in a bee brain, which is approximately the number of neurons in one human retina.” However, Halter explained the same as an outsider – he wasn’t involved in the real research.

Bees communicate with each other through jostling, head-butting and dancing. An experiment conducted a few years back in 2009 confirmed the fact that bees are quite intelligent to trace out real flowers from the artificial ones. Earlier, scientists believed in the concept that big brains work better, but the latest research on bumble bee confirmed that even tiniest brains can work more intelligently than humans and other living beings.

Are You Ready for Your First Ride On a Flying Car?

Are You Ready for Your First Ride On a Flying Car?

Image source: aeromobil

Automobile technology is flourishing all around. Now we have reached a time when even flying cars on sky seems so real which looked absolutely impossible even a few years back. Hold your breath and nerves as within the next few days from now onwards, you might be actually notice a car flying up above the sky.

There was a time when engineers looked into the possible ways of transportation underground. This led to the discovery of underground metro-rail, and now people are looking at the sky to find some easy ways to commute from one place to another for a short distance that airplane doesn’t cover. Mostly, streets are full with people and traffic problems, so a flying car is definitely the best bet for short distance during office hours.

According to Tom Enders, CEO of Airbus (EADSY), the company is seriously looking at air transportation vehicles option that can be used or hailed with an app. In fact, Airbus is seriously planning to launch its proposed flying cars in the near future. And mind you, when self driving car is possible then flying cars with passengers will also become a reality sometime too soon.

Flying Cars: Technological Merits and Disadvantages

Airbus gave the name Pop.Up to its car flying platform. Reportedly, it is a passenger compartment that is fixed to its four-wheeled autonomous car. The company has also claimed that by the end of 2020, flying cars will be on full swing carrying passengers from one place to another almost everywhere. The biggest advantage of the car is its ability to run on the ground and fly over the head too.

However, whether the vehicle will get a legal sanction from the ATC (Air traffic Controller) to fly over the sky or not is a question that is still pondering in the mind of the people who are mesmerized by its innovation and technology. Nevertheless, the authority is also seriously contemplating about the future roadmap of flying cars.

The major problem that is looming over the prospect of a flying car is its need to accommodate all the parts and technology that can make it fly and run on the ground. The vehicle will actually move as per the direction given to it by the AI (Artificial Intelligence) integrated into its system.

How to Book a Flying Car

People can book a Pop.Up vehicle using the app available on their smartphones. The app will itself then certify whether a ground or air travel will be the best option for the passenger considering the route, distance, traffic and expenses. It is highly anticipated that such vehicles will work with the batteries having a huge capacity.

“Successfully designing and implementing solutions that will work both in the air and on the ground requires a joint reflection on the part of both aerospace and automotive sectors, alongside collaboration with local government bodies for infrastructure and regulatory frameworks,” an Airbus Official stated.

Dubai Is Set to Fly the World’s First Passenger-Carrying Drone

Dubai Is Set to Fly the World’s First Passenger-Carrying Drone

Image source: valuewalk com

Gone are the days when drones were widely used for counter-terrorism activities or at wars, nowadays, Drones have emerged out as the most innovative mode of transport for people in the middle East. Dubai is set to become the first region to in the world to approve passenger-carrying drone flying over the space. It will be for the first time that drones will be put to such use. Until now, Drones were mainly used for counter-terrorism and surveillance purposes.

In fact, it will work just like a normal airplane for shorter distances. The recent AP report claimed that the Dubai Roads and Transportation Agency is ready to experiment the single-person quadcopter which could be capable of carrying a passenger from one place to another. The Chinese drone-making company 184 Ehang has manufactured the device.

During the last World Government Summit, Dubai government official said this vehicle will be fully capable to fly safely in the open air. Interestingly, it will be for the first time that a drone will carry a passenger inside it. However, some more intricate issues like shared airspace, managing the device’s taking off and landing and whether it will fly automatically or will it have a pilot for passenger’s safety are need to be carefully examined before any final decision is taken.

Many residents of Dubai feel that it will definitely take some time before the dream of Drone-carrying passengers becomes real. The authorities are saying that by July every process would be completed to facilitate the first ever drone air transport.

This quadcopter looks little different than a normal air vehicle. It is egg-shaped having four legs and a mechanized look. The carrying capacity of the vehicle is up to 200 pounds plus a suitcase around 20 kg. Also, the vehicle will have a touch-screen pad that will operate automatically. The battery backup will be around 30-40 minutes and can cover up to 31 miles. The speed of the vehicle is expected to stay somewhere around 60 to 100 mph.

According to the Dubai’s Road and Transportation Agency, “the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority has examined the quadcopter for quality assurance purposes. It will operate through HSPA+ or 4G mobile network to give direction of its movement on sky and where it will move – the ATC will keep a constant tab on the every move of the drone to avert any sort of accident or mishap. This innovative step will give further impetus to Dubai’s dream of driverless vehicles across its streets. Dubai aims to have at least 25 per cent of its passengers commute via driverless vehicles by 2030.
