Six Degrees Of Separation

six degrees of separation

Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. The theory was first proposed in 1929 by the Hungarian writer Frigyes Karinthy in a short story called “Chains.”Most people have heard of the “six degrees of separation” theory — the idea that everyone in the world is separated from everyone else by six links. Is it a myth or a fact of life? Continue reading “Six Degrees Of Separation”

The Li-Fi: Internet Revolutioner

LiFi is a wireless optical networking technology that uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for data transmission

Due to the increasing demand for wireless data communication, the available radio spectrum below 10 GHz (cm-wave communication) has become insufficient. The wireless communication industry has responded to this challenge by considering the radio spectrum above 10 GHz (mm-wave communication). The answer to increasing frequency congestion as Internet usage continues to rise across the world is provided by Light-Fidelity (Li-Fi). It’s a very exciting technology that has been on our radar since Professor Harald Hass gave a TED talk on the topic back in 2011. Continue reading “The Li-Fi: Internet Revolutioner”

Slow Learners Vs Fast Learners

Handling-Slow-Learners

Why are some people able to master a new skill quickly while others take longer? This was the question posed by many. Now, researchers have discovered exactly what happens in the brain of these two types of learners and why children are so adept at picking up new abilities.

Scott Grafton and colleagues from the University of California, the University of Pennsylvania, and Johns Hopkins University measured the connections between different brain regions while participants learned to play a simple game. During the six-week learning period, the research team examined the participants’ brains with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to track something different than typical fMRI studies. This technique measures neural activity by tracking the flow of blood in the brain, highlighting which regions are involved in a given task. They discovered that the quickest learners show different neural activity in comparison with the slower ones. Continue reading “Slow Learners Vs Fast Learners”

Low Battery?? Yell at your Phone to Charge it….

A technology allows you to charge your phone battery by yelling at it.

Imagine that one day you could charge your mobile phone, just by placing them in noisy areas or by yelling at them. Then you don’t have to struggle for the dead phone battery while travelling or during an outing when you are away from power sources. It’s no more an imagination…. Scientists have come up with a postage stamp-sized microphone out of paper that could boost your phone’s battery regulating sound.  Continue reading “Low Battery??
