Alien life discovery in our lifetime insists SETI astronomer

The hunt for alien life will turn up results within our lifetime, a senior astronomer at the SETI Institute has promised the US Congress, though it might not be tentacled monsters or grey-skinned creatures with big eyes. The surprise commitment came at a House Committee on Science, Space and Technology hearing this past week, with SETI's Seth Shostak going on to explain the justification behind his bold prediction.

NASA has found the first potentially habitable Earth-cousin

NASA has found the first potentially habitable Earth-cousin

NASA's Kepler Space Telescope has made a planet-spotting breakthrough, catching sight of the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the so-called "habitable zone" where liquid water could be supported. Dubbed Kepler-186f, and around 500 light years away from our own Earth, the new planet is found in the constellation Cygnus; however, while it may be in the habitable zone in theory, it would be dimmer and probably cooler on the surface than Earth is.

NVIDIA SHIELD’s GameStream ready to pair with gaming notebooks

NVIDIA SHIELD’s GameStream ready to pair with gaming notebooks

Support for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 800M collection of graphics processors is now ready alongside several other sets of processing hardware for the NVIDIA GameStream experience. What this means for NVIDIA SHIELD owners is that their gaming laptop, if too large for any given situation, can be used to stream games to their NVIDIA SHIELD. This ability will be activated immediately if not soon for a number of Kepler and Maxwell based GPU-toting notebooks.

Audi self-driving car brings NVIDIA Tegra K1 front and center

NVIDIA has brought the power of CUDA to mobile, further detailing how the NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC will be brought to Audi to prove its name as the future of mobile processing - inside and outside of cars. In the NVIDIA Tegra K1 you've got processing power enough to roll with self-driving cars like the one Audi has driven out this week in addition to the versatility needed to land in tablets and other odd smart devices down the line. Just like the NVIDIA Tegra 4, K1 is ready for action far above the system-on-chip architecture of the past.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z official for real-time magic

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z official for real-time magic

NVIDIA has revealed its latest video card, the GeForce GTX Titan Z, its new flagship with two Kepler GPUs for a total of 5,760 processing cores. Succeeding the Titan Black, the new Titan Z uses a pair of NVIDIA's GK110, tuned to run at identical clock-speeds so that neither slows the other down. The result is an incredible amount of performance for real-time simulation and computer graphics.
