In this week’s “Science Links” post I share a number of articles covering topics ranging from tech news to flying cars, to artificial intelligence and virtual reality. Make sure to watch the two excellent bonus videos linked at the end of the post.
In my ”Weekly Science Links” post from earlier in the week, I shared some of my favorite sources of science news and analysis. Another tip is to subscribe to science news letters. I subscribe to a series of newsletters from “Seeking Alpha” which provide cutting edge (i.e. first thing in the morning daily; fresh) news and analysis on salient business topics. One of the newsletters covers technology (the “Eye on Tech” newsletter). Interestingly, this newsletter designed for Wall Street investors, is one of the best newsletters I have found to stay ahead of near term technology trends as they are deployed and brought to market (over the next few years).
This week’s (second) edition of Science Links features several articles from the Seeking Alpha “Eye on Tech” newsletter, which is authored by Eric Jhonsa. I would like to attributed the summaries to him as they are paraphrased from the newsletter. The graphics are also attributed to the newsletter and/or the linked articles (the original source material for Eric).
I’ve been following science news online for as long as I’ve been on the Internet so that means going back to the late ‘90s. Offline, if we count children’s fact books and my parents Nature magazines, NatGeo, etc. I’ve been reading up on science since I was 5 years old.
Currently, I read about 15 – 20 science related articles every week online from a variety of sources. I also rely on the excellent links that people post on Twitter, Facebook, etc. In other words, I crowdsource my science! In that same spirit, I have decided to share my best science links for the week with you.
