Using your right ear helps you to be a better listener

Daily Mail

Becoming a better listener could be as simple as favouring your right ear, according to new research. Remembering conversations can be difficult at the best of times, with background noises and interruptions only adding to the problem. Now, experts have found that ignoring what you hear with your left ear could help you to process and retain audio information - up to 40 per cent more effectively.

People who are good at video games are more intelligent

Daily Mail

Two popular video games act like IQ tests, with the most intelligent players gaining the highest scores, research has shown. Both games, League of Legends and Defence of the Ancients 2 (DOTA 2) involve chess-like strategic thinking. Scientists discovered that high levels of skill in both games correlated with having a high IQ. A similar association has been seen between IQ and chess performance.

Some bosses are bad because they're too clever

Daily Mail

You might think having a smart boss must be a good thing, but new research has shown there is an optimal level of intelligence for a leader. Experts found that bosses whose IQ was more than 18 points higher than their employees begin to lose their respect. The results also showed a strong link between intelligence and performance up to an IQ of around 120, after which point this trend begins to go into reverse. The news may cause concern for US President Donald Trump, who is famously proud of his'huge' intellectual prowess. Experts have found that bosses whose IQ is more than 18 points higher than their employees lose their respect.


Patent suggests Amaozn is planning to track its workers

Daily Mail

From robot workers to drone deliveries, Amazon is known for using innovative and futuristic technologies. But the latest patent suggests that the firm wants to take things further, and use technology to track its workers. The patent reveals designs for ultrasonic wristbands that could be used to monitor workers' performance.

Video shows 1,000 droids dance in unison in China

Daily Mail

Their performance broke the Guinness World Records title for the Most robots dancing simultaneously. Dobi is designed and manufactured by WL Intelligent Technology Co. Ltd, a toy company based in southern China's Shantou city, together with experts from the Harbin Institute of Technology. Cai Weidong, the General Manager of WL Intelligent Technology said Dobi was entirely made in China, something the company took great pride in. Mr Cai said by applying for the Guinness World Records, he wanted to prove that Dobi was more than just a toy, but a representation of Chinese technology.

Consistent backswing key to becoming a star tennis player

Daily Mail

Scientists assessed the speed at which people learned the basic skills in both golf and tennis, and found that those with consistent backswings perfected their techniques twice as quickly. The study demonstrates that any immediately preceding movement needs to be consistent to achieve fast learning. For the research, participants were asked to make two successive movements (a lead-in movement followed immediately by the main movement) while grasping the handle of a robotic device.

Google has created a neural network that can multitask

Daily Mail

It can detect objects in images, provide captions, recognise speech, translate between four pairs of languages, and do grammatical constituency parsing at the same time. The inspiration for the MultiModel comes from how the brain transforms sensory input from modalities such as sound, vision and taste, and transforms them into a single shared representation and back out as language or actions. 'It can detect objects in images, provide captions, recognise speech, translate between four pairs of languages, and do grammatical constituency parsing at the same time', the researchers, led by Lukasz Kaiser wrote in their blog.

Robots exchange 'genetic material' to evolve

Daily Mail

A series of experiments has pitted robots against each other in different tasks to assess their evolving fitness across 10 generations, as they swapped genetic material in a process similar to mating. The study shows for the first time that developmental factors play a role in the evolution of physically embodied robots just as they do in biological systems, according to the researchers. The work taps into Darwinian evolutionary principles, and marks an important step forward in understanding how the interplay between evolution and development contributes to these systems. As the robots'reproduced' across 10 generations, the physical expression of the genome changed by altering their wiring according to the new genetic setup. The researchers measured the robots' fitness by their performance, and compared this with simulations In the study, researchers from Vassar College expanded on efforts in evolutionary robots to include epigenetic factors for the first time.
