    Even if the nest has occurred and survived, artificial lighting still causes problems for the soon to be hatching nestlings. Artificial lighting is known to deter the emergence of nestlings. The reason why it does this is still not known (Witherington). Speculation is that the turtles think the artificial light is actually daylight, which then would suppress behavior that is usually nocturnal. If the hatchlings hatch, they end up crawling toward artificial light sources because of the same instinctive

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is regarded as the field of study of the design of intelligent and ‘rational’ agents. A rational agent is a system that acts intelligently; being able to compute, perform actions and make decisions that are appropriate to circumstances, its goal(s) and the environment. It must also be able to have flexible goal(s) and environments in terms of prioritisation, and learns from previous experiences by relating previous and current symbolic representations or ‘syntax’ containing

    technological developments of the modern age, none is as complex as artificial intelligence. The idea that a non-human, manufactured entity could advance to a point of emulating human behavior is enough to make people shiver. The idea of something so advanced that we will not be able to tell the difference may be even worse. In 1961 Philip Dick wrote Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. It portrayed a world with these exact characteristics. Artificial Intelligence had advanced to a point of near-perfect human

The artificial heart must maintain blood circulation and oxygenation, beat 100,000 times every 24 hours and it must have a constant power source. More complicated expectations include the expectation that the heart must beat faster and slower based on the patient's activity level and the artificial heart

    Artificial intelligence or Al for short capability of a computer to perform functions that is normally associated with human intelligence, such as reasoning, learning or self-improvement. Its concept requests a lot more than present information to the user; it requires that the machine is not only able to store and manipulate information but also to deal with its "meaning".

    Humans have developed a wonderful fascination with artificial intelligence since it first introduced to the world in the 1950’s. The Merriam-Webster defined Artificial Intelligence as “a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers.” Another definition is “the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior.” Computer science was cool on its own but to incorporate human intelligence into it sounded like a ground breaking idea. There would

    Artificial refuge is any man-made shelter for a specific species or population. There are many reasons for artificial refuge. In most cases, artificial refuge serves as an efficient means to maintain population growth (Ebrahimi, et al. 2008). In a few cases, the natural refuge has been destroyed and artificial refuge is necessary to help maintain the population size. While it seems that a simple replica of the shelter will suffice, there are various factors that influence whether or not artificial

    Artificial insemination is the injection of SEMEN into the vagina by instrumental means. The first artificial inseminations of viviparous (live-bearing) animals were performed by the 18th-century Italian physiologist Lazzaro Spallanzani, who proved that the male contribution to reproduction resided in the semen, although he did not recognize spermatozoa as the fertilizing agents. Pioneering work in the artificial insemination of dairy and beef animals was done in Russia about the time of the Revolutions
