How closely do we need electronics to impersonate the brain before they can pass the Turing Test?
Before manned space flight became a reality in the 1960s, the greatest challenge in exploration was to traverse the continent of Antarctica. A team spearheaded by British explorer Sir Vivian 'Bunny' Fuchs led a mission that was to put the internal combustion engine to its sternest test yet.
Only one country has so far managed to land objects on Mars successfully - the USA. Not wanting to get left behind, Europe is building its own rover - the ExoMars. Its three prototypes are currently roaming a mock section of Mars built at Airbus's facilities in Stevenage, UK.
The Turing biopic, The Imitation Game, is based on the classic biography 'Alan Turing: the Enigma'. We talk to its author Andrew Hodges, fellow and tutor in mathematics at Wadham College, University of Oxford.
In this issue we explore the enigmatic Alan Turing and his legacy. Nick Smith interviews Andrew Hodges, author of the biography on which the film The Imitation Game was based. Edd Gent looks at progress in artificial intelligence and how closely electronics will need to impersonate the human brain before it can pass the famous Turing Test. Christine Evans-Pughe examines Turing’s late work in morphogenesis and how it’s helping scientists to develop ways to make complex materials build themselves. Was Turing dyslexic or autistic? We shall probably never know, but Crispin Andrews asks the experts, which looks at these conditions’ relationship to engineering.
Elsewhere in this issue, we take a gander at Europe's ExoMars rover on test in an Earth-bound simulation of the Red Planet, actually located a mere stone's throw away from the IET building in Stevenage. From a blazing hell on a distant planet to a frozen hell much closer to home, we hear about the difficulties encountered on one group's mission to traverse Antarctica. There's also a look at how the much-touted Internet of Things will revolutionise manufacturing and make devices smarter. Plus a whole lot of other stuff that'll knock your science socks off.
The E&T podcast: smells like gene spirit
Edd Gent talks to Dr Michael Schmuker, whose research straddles chemistry, informatics and neuroscience, about using the neuromorphic physical model to implement a model of the neural network in the olfactory system, which is responsible for our sense of smell.
The recent revelation that a website was openly selling credit card records to all comers is hardly surprising. 'Carders', as they're known in security circles, have been selling stolen records online for years, but normally via less popular channels, like IRC.
Have we become sufficiently accustomed to the notion of 'having a relationship' with our computers to the point where we are now prepared to treat them as bona fide co-workers?
If ever the importance of industrial automation was in doubt, the Internet of Things - otherwise known as IoT, IPv6 or Industry 4.0 - is probably the clincher. From baking to lighting, we look at the benefits of letting devices communicate.
Alan Turing's ideas on morphogenesis are helping scientists to develop ways to make complex materials build themselves.
Software-defined networking promises cheaper, more flexible communications but is that winning over converts in the data centre?
Businesses need to stay ahead of the game and go further than staff if they wish to keep their finger on the pulse and remain secure when it comes to IT on the move.
Airships came to prominence in the First World War when they were used for bombing raids. Today the airship concept is undergoing a revival. But what is the technology like, and what will they be used for?
This month's new regular feature on sports technology looks at the gadgets fighting the 'white death', which, as the recent tragedy of the trekkers in Nepal shows, remains a grave danger for mountaineers.
Some commentators think Alan Turing was dyslexic, some say autistic. In any case his life and his genius remain sources of inspiration for engineers and all those who defy discrimination and prejudice.
There's more to designing best-selling products than simply loading them with features, says Jon Kolko, whose new book explains how the most important ingredient in design is human engagement.
In biology labs around the world, the graduate student or 'lab rat' has long been a synonym for drudge. But the machines have started taking over. Biologists are now using technology for its mechanical doggedness.
You've seen them on screen, now there's a chance to get a closer look at some iconic vehicles from the James Bond films.
Debate: Is UX design a waste of time?
Keith Goffin is Professor of Innovation and New Product Development at Cranfield School of Management. His books include ‘Identifying Hidden Needs: Creating Breakthrough Products’.
David Wood is chair at London Futurists and former CTO at Accenture Mobility. He has featured in T3’s list of ‘100 most influential people in technology’.
