Microsoft's Kinect navigates the universe thanks to Windows SDK (video) By Sean Hollister posted Apr 13th 2011 5:10PM Microsoft's WorldWide Telescope -- a collaboration with NASA that explores high-resolution photos and 3D renders of the cosmos -- was already pretty cool, but Redmond upped the ante to incredible with the addition of a Kinect depth camera at MIX 11.

Galaxy S II benchmarked, makes other phones cry in shame

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2438 days, 13 hours, 3 minutes ago
Thursday, April 14, 2011 7:40:46 AM GMT
The first benchmarks of Samsung's 1.2GHz Galaxy S II -- we saw the 1GHz variant tested previously -- are rolling in, and it's fast. Almost suspiciously so. Its speedy dual-core Exynos CPU pulled off a 3,053 in Quadrant and scored double what the similarly specced HTC Sensation did in Smartbench2011. Those scores also represent a more than threefold improvement over the original Galaxy S. Of course, these are purely synthetic benchmarks and may not translate into an equally improved experience in day to d... (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2438 days, 13 hours, 7 minutes ago
Thursday, April 14, 2011 7:35:48 AM GMT
We've seen a rather creepy array of robots programmed to mimic human emotions, but teaching a machine to feel regret? Now, that's a new one. With funding from Google, a team of Tel Aviv University researchers is working on an algorithm to teach computers to learn from their experiences, thus reducing instances of "virtual regret." (more)
