Howard Gordon writes, "Robot remote control via Internet is not a new concept, but this demo, created by Ogilvy New Zealand for BP Australia takes things to a new level." You can find more info about the project in the Surveyor news blog. Another reader pointed us to an interesting PLoS Biology paper that discusses some interesting parallels between language evolution and biological evolution including evidence of punctuated (no pun intended) equilibrium. The Swirling Brain pointed out a Technology review story on a new MRI technique called Diffusion spectrum imaging (DSI) which is revealing new information about the organization of brain cells. He also noticed stories on an artificially intelligent glider, a Scientific American report about a clever psychological experiment on free will, new spoilers about Terminator Salvation revealing a religious "building robots is a sin" theme, and an article on the winners of the UK MoD Grand Challenge. Roland Piquepaille's latest blog post is about an AUV being used to explore the world's deepest underwater volcanoes in the Caribbean.
