ICYMI: Wildland firefighting is about to get an AI assist

ICYMI: Wildland firefighting is about to get an AI assist

Today on In Case You Missed It: Lockheed Martin just demonstrated its AI aircraft system that can spot fires and put them out independent of human intervention, while also checking to see if any humans were left behind near danger. The system is supposed to be in service within five years.

Researchers discovered that Goffin cockatoos are smart enough to make tools from various materials, judging how long and narrow they need to be each time to pass through a hole and also reach a treat. Meanwhile, if you're interested in the rapid repair of a sinkhole in Japan, the timelapse video is here. There have been a lot of interesting stories this week but people will be talking about the judge's decision to allow a dying girl to be cryogenically frozen for quite a while. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.

In anticipation of the the Netflix revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, we thought it would be wise to look back on some of the many valuable life lessons Gilmore Girls has taught us. Read more...
