Smart Bikes to Improve Cycling Safety, Efficiency
Manufacturers haven't yet incorporated the advanced technologies of smart cars into bicycles on a level widespread enough to make smart bikes affordable. But the industry recognizes that as the challenge of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions grows, the need to encourage more people to use bicycles instead of cars is becoming more urgent—and a critical component of this imperative is making cycling safer and easier for cyclists to share road conditions and other factors with other cyclists and with municipal managers.

DART Launch Could be Key Step Forward in Planetary Defence
DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test), which is scheduled to launch at 10:20 p.m. PST on Nov. 23 out of Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, is NASA's first planetary defense mission. This mission will demonstrate asteroid deflection via kinetic impact. The goal is to collide with the target to see how the orbit changes. It's a test run to see if such a plan is feasible should we find an asteroid on a collision course with Earth one day.

Eye Movements Read by AI Reveal Thoughts, Memories - and Brain Disease
Whenever you explore an environment or search for something, you scan the scene using continuous rapid eye movements. Your eyes also make short stops to fixate on certain elements of the scene that you want more detailed information about. The way you move your eyes and the selection of details you fixate your gaze upon can be summed up as your viewing behaviour.
