British scientist and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking was hospitalized in Rome Reuters

Stephen Hawking, the famed physicist, has been hospitalized in Rome Friday for tests as a precaution after not feeling well.

Reuters reported that his condition does not appear to be serious.

He is being treated at Rome s Gemelli hospital.

He is planning to leave on Saturday.

Hawking, 74, was reportedly in Rome for a conference at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

They may sound like something straight out of Star Trek, but newly created "time crystals" truly are a scientific marvel.

They jiggle like Jello-O, but do so without requiring any energy at all.

Time crystals sound like something that should be powering the Starship Enterprise.

In fact, they re the focus of a fascinating, albeit mind-bending piece of research recently published in the journal Physical Review Letters.

The idea is, at least conceptually, fairly simple: With standard crystals being structures in which patterns of atoms or molecules repeat in space, would it be possible to have that same repeating pattern play out over time?

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking speaks at his official welcoming ceremony at Perimeter Institute For Theoretical Physics in Kitchener in 2014.

An American woman was handed a suspended four-month jail sentence in Spain Friday for threatening to kill cosmologist Stephen Hawking.

The woman, identified by Spanish media reports as Jenny Theresa C., was arrested at a hotel on Spain s Canary Island of Tenerife Wednesday.

According to BBC, the woman had a map showing Hawking s itinerary while on the island.

She told police after she was detained that she was in love with him and would have never hurt him.

BBC reported that the 37-year-old was stalking Hawking on social media before her arrest.

Stephen Hawking, the British physicist and author of A Brief History of Time, has passed away at the age of 76.

"He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years," according to a statement released by his family to British media early Wednesday morning.

"His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world.

Tributes to Hawking have already begun pouring in from around the globe.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, the Director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, wrote on Twitter:

Born on January 8, 1942 (exactly 300 years after the death of Galileo Galilei), Hawking was diagnosed at the age of 21 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease, which resulted in his being confined to a wheelchair nearly his entire life.

(University of Vienna) Quantum mechanics is famous for its indeterminism, but we can usually use probabilities to quantify our uncertainty about future observations. However, a team of researchers at the University of Vienna, the IQOQI Vienna (Austrian Academy of Sciences) and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical physics have recently shown that in certain extreme quantum scenarios it is not possible to make such probabilistic predictions, provided that certain key assumptions of quantum mechanics hold true.

Scientists from Imperial college, London have discovered a brand new form of light. Scientists say, it's attainable by binding light to a single electron by combining both properties. Conversely, electrons in an electrical circuit will normally stop when faced with a defect or imperfection in the conducting material, but with the aid of photons, “the electron would still be able to travel onwards.” Generally, light collaborates with an entire host of electrons,which is present on the surface and inside the material. Theoretical physics is used to design light behavior and topological insulators.

(University of Groningen) Scientists typically prefer to work with ordered systems. However, a diverse team of physicists and biophysicists from the University of Groningen found that individual light-harvesting nanotubes with disordered molecular structures still transport light energy in the same way. By combining spectroscopy, molecular dynamics simulations and theoretical physics, they discovered how disorder at the molecular level is effectively averaged out at the microscopic scale.

The famous theoretical physicist welcomes the establishment of an academic institution exploring the impact of artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence AI will be either the best, or the worst thing, ever to happen to humanity according to Professor Stephen Hawking.

The renowned theoretical physicist has previously warned that the development of intelligent machines could put humanity at risk of being the architect of its own destruction.

However, Professor Hawking seems to have mellowed his stance and sees potential in the creation of AI as well as the pitfalls.

Speaking at the opening of the £10 million Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence LCFI at Cambridge University, Hawking praised the advent of an academic institution dedicated to AI research and the impact it could have.

According to The Guardian, it won Hawking s approval to the extent he hailed the centre as crucial to the future of our civilisation and our species .

Confirmed by a spokesperson for the Hawking family, Nobel Prize-winner Stephen Hawking died early Wednesday morning in Cambridge, England.

Author to several books including the extremely popular “A Brief History of Time,” the family said Hawking “died peacefully” in his home after living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) since 1962.

He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years.

His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world.

He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss him forever.”

Arguably one of the best-known figures in the scientific community, Hawking’s work as a theoretical physicist changed how many scientists viewed the universe.

Samsung today announced the hiring of two prominent artificial intelligence researchers to bolster its research and development efforts.

Dr. Sebastian Seung, a computational neuroscientist and professor at Princeton University’s Neuroscience Institute and Department of Computer Science, and Dr. Daniel Lee, chair of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, will oversee machine learning projects at Samsung’s research division.

Dr. Seung, who studied theoretical physics at Harvard, worked as a researcher at Bell Labs in the theoretical physics department and as a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

He won the 2008 Hoam Prize in Engineering; wrote Connectome, a book about the map of neural connections in the brain; and leads a team working on EyeWire, an online citizen science computation game about tracing neurons in the retina.

More recently, Dr. Seung engineered a computer circuit modeled on the brain’s cerebral cortex and published a paper on one of the first walking robots taught with reinforcement learning.

He is also credited with applying convolutional neural networks to image segmentation, the process of partitioning pictures into multiple parts.
