Researchers in Switzerland say they have made microchips that imitate the way our brains process information, unlocking some of the mystery around how the world’s most efficient computer functions.
Scientists at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, together with colleagues in Germany and the United States, created electronic systems comparable to a human brain both in size, speed and energy consumption.
Just like the brain, their so-called neuromorphic chips are capable of processing and reacting to information in real-time. Using neuromorphic chips as artificial neurons, the researchers built networks that can perform tasks requiring short-term memory and decision-making and analytical abilities.
The technology could over time become a useful tool, allowing robots to navigate autonomously in an environment and survive without someone with a remote control.
The chips could also one day pave the way for computers that can function despite faulty parts, in the same way the human brain continues to churn unabated even though it loses around a million neurons each day.

Bibi Ka Maqbara is situated 5 km away from Aurangabad. Aurangazeb’s son, Prince Azam Shah built it in 1678 in the memory of his mother Begum Rabia Durani. This mausoleum is a replica of the famous Taj Mahal.
Despite the layout and surrounding of the tomb is very much similar to Taj Mahal, somehow the architecture fails to produce the magic of the Taj. Hence, it is considered to be a poor imitation of the Taj Mahal.
The chief architect of the monument is a Persian called Ustad – Ata – Ullah. The inscription on the walls of the tomb reveals that it cost precisely Rs. 665,283 and 7 Annas to build this monument.
Bibi Ka Maqbara has four towering minarets like Taj Mahal. An octagonal lattice-screen of white marble surrounds the raised plinth supporting Rabia Daurani’s grave inside the tomb. The tips of its pillars are made of red stone. The monument becomes so beauty when its reflection falls on the water as soon as the sun’s first rays fall on it.

Indian Railways (Hindi: Bhāratīya Rail), the state-owned railway company of India, which owns and operates most of the country’s rail transport. It is overseen by the Ministry of Railways of the Government of India.
Indian Railways has more than 64,015 kilometres (39,777 mi) of track and 6,909 stations. It has the world’s fourth largest railway network after that of the United States, Russia and China.The railways traverse the length and breadth of the country and carry over 20 million passengers and 2 million tons of freight daily. It is one of the world’s largest commercial or utility employers, with more than 1.6 million employees. As to rolling stock, IR owns over 200,000 (freight) wagons, 50,000 coaches and 8,000 locomotives.
Railways were first introduced to India in 1853. By 1947, the year of India’s independence, there were forty-two rail systems. In 1951 the systems were nationalised as one unit, becoming one of the largest networks in the world. IR operates both long distance and suburban rail systems on a multi-gauge network of broad, metre and narrow gauges. It also owns locomotive and coach production facilities.
Initially, the Indian railways were both designed and built by the British, during their colonial rule of the subcontinent.

hold the title of the tallest buildings in the world.
|Empire State Bldg.||
The height of The Empire State Building in New York : 1,250 feet (381 m)
World’s Tallest Building: Who Holds The Title?
Officially, the World’s Tallest Buildings are the Petronas Towers in
The highest occupiable floor of Sears is more then 200 feet higher than the top floor in Petronas and its antennas go even higher. So why are the Petronas Towers considered the World’s Tallest Buildings?
Because, in the tradition and lore of tall building, spires count, antennas don’t.
Spires are architectural features and they have been traditionally counted in a building’s height, a precedent that dates to the Chrysler Building. Antennas are not normally considered architectural features.
So…based on the long and storied tradition of tall buildings, the winner by decision is the Petronas Towers.
|Mt Everest.||Mountain heights…
Mount Everest : 29,028 feet (8,853 m)

Water:- Water makes up 70% of earth’s surface but more than 97% of that is too salty for drinking or irrigation.Of the usable 3% water more than 75% is frozen as ice caps and glaciers.
This leaves less than 0.5% that is available
(as groundwater aquifers, rivers, lakes and streams) for human consumption.
