Arend Hintze opines that as an artificial intelligence researcher, he often comes across the idea that many people are afraid of what AI might bring. It is perhaps unsurprising, given both history and the entertainment industry, that we might be afraid of a cybernetic takeover that forces us to live locked away, Matrix-like, as some sort of human battery.

And yet it is difficult for him to look up from the evolutionary computer models he uses to develop AI, to think about how the innocent virtual creatures on his screen might become the monsters of the future. Might he become the de... More →

David Harro, P.G., reports that sinkholes in Florida are a major concern to engineering and environmental studies. The use of geophysics for the identification of sinkholes in Florida have focused on two types of geophysics, Ground Penetrating Radar and Multi Electrode Electrical Resistivity. Applications of GPR and MER have been successful for areas where the cover material over the limestone is less than 30 feet. However, in much of the state this material can reach to depth. Sites with limited distances can limit MER significantly leaving only GPR. In most cases GPR and MER do not reach the... More →

Dr. Conca reports that Americans apparently want to drink clean water even more than they want to breath clean air. A new public survey and study was conducted in May by Nestle Waters North America on 4,756 American adults across the lower 48 states.

The Perspectives on American Water Study, released yesterday at the annual Aspen Ideas Festival on innovative solutions in Colorado, asked the respondents to share their views on water-related topics. The overall take-away from the survey is that ...

1. Clean drinking water is more important than clean air to Americans,

Mining.com recounts some of the interesting projects of world proportions. For example, there is a lot more to mining than the things that occasionally go wrong. Though the media focus on the disasters, every day in the industry incredible things are done that never get any press time. The ways humans have found to get the things we need out of the ground are simply staggering. Let us take a look at some of the more mind boggling things humans have done over the years in our quest for resources.

Humans have combined insane feats of engineering brilliance with fascinating research p... More →

Mark Donnelly presents an interesting discussion of risk. Risk, he purports, in terms of protection of people at the coalface (at the practical level or working), should be determined not by the likelihood of happening, nor from occurrence of doing, but only from the consequence of harm and by what controls that risk.
