A plastic cage was also designed by physicist Da-Ming Zhu at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, to keep the mice in during levitation. Its top remained open to let in air, food, water and video surveillance, and its bottom was filled with small holes to allow waste removal.

From time to time, mice would kick the walls of the cage, causing it to briefly drop off from the levitation zone before re-entering it and floating again.

on AI (thx Donny)

in the future, AI will not be about programming, it will be about child-rearing. this whole new field of cognitive psychology will be guys who raise AIs, and then license copies to commercial companies so, actually, i guess that kind of corroborates your theory: the "(programming) language that can evolve" is just communicating with a growing individual.

Ulam spiral: Ulam, bored that day, wrote down a regular grid of numbers, starting with 1 at the center, and spiraling out. To his surprise, prime numbers tended to line up along diagonal lines. (the center/middle is 0)

Cubum autem in duos cubos aut quadrato quadratum in duos quadrato quadratos et generaliter nullam in infinitum quadratum potestatem in duos eiusdem nominis fas est dividere. Cuius rei demonstrationem mirabilem sane detexi. Hanc marginis exiguitas non caperet.  -- Arithmetica

The key factor in singularity scenarios is the positive-feedback loop of self-improvement: once something is even slightly smarter than humanity, it can start to improve itself or design new intelligences faster than we can leading to an intelligence explosion designed by something that isn't us.
