Bicycle mayb reach top speed of 90mph (145kph) by pedal power

April 25th, 2014 by Terrence Miao No comments »

• The bike is encased in a lightweight carbon fibre shell with the rider cycling in a near-horizontal position.  
• The design of the Arion1 exterior shell uses the same science used in the design of aircraft wings – adopting an inverted ‘teardrop’ shape to cut through the air as easily as possible. 
• The vehicle emits zero carbon emissions, weighs less than 55lbs (25kg), is 98.4 per cent efficient and will travel at almost double the current sprint cycling record.
• The rider will be just five inches (13 cm) from the floor and will need to generate over 700 watts of pure human power to get to top speed.
• It’s 40 times more aerodynamic than a Bugatti Veyron, has a top speed of 90mph (145kph), and generates enough power to light the average home.

Google cracks its own CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) verification with its own algorithm

Algorithmic trading or chess are fantastic examples of things computers do better than us, but no indication of consciousness or of an ability to pass a real Turing test.

In the 1950s, British researcher Alan Turing seriously interrogated the question of whether machines could think. He eventually decided it was meaningless to try and answer this and instead posited: Are there imaginable digital computers which would do well in the imitation game?

"I believe that at the end of the century the use of words and general educated opinion will have altered so much that one will be able to speak of machines thinking without expecting to be contradicted," Turing wrote in 1950, amidst significant philosophical and ideological objections.

Imitators, like Google's technology, abound but it seems that Turing's vision – of universal acknowledgement of machines capable of thought – is still some way off.
