But the technology could also, theoretically, be used to develop placid super-soldiers.
Glassdoor, which operates a recruiting and job review website, is growing its Chicago office, becoming the latest West Coast technology company to expand its software engineering team in the city.

During a largely tepid debate less than a week before Election Day, Chicago mayoral candidates Toni Preckwinkle and Lori Lightfoot took a final blast of parting shots Wednesday night.
They avoided direct attacks for about 48 sedate minutes during the CBS-Ch. 2 event, which was held in an auditorium…
If you thought we had a few years before the world turns into a real-life “Black Mirror” episode, think again. Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry’s latest exhibit, “Wired to Wear,” makes it very clear that the future of fashion goes well beyond a smartwatch that can pay for your coffee. With…
You catch the 7 Line train from New York’s Times Square — a chaotic urban carnival of commerce, musicals, plays, comedy and gawking, technology laying atop the grime of urban history, its liveness mostly unchanged for a century. For anyone with urban dreams and a deep-seated fear of life’s boredom,…
Google said Tuesday it has begun rolling out what it calls “dynamic email,” an enhancement to its web-based Gmail page that in some cases eliminates the need to open a separate tab to accomplish a task. Microsoft also said it will add support for the same technology, known as AMP HTML preview.
Dynamic email feels somewhat like an extension of the dynamic replies that will pop up in response to an existing Gmail message, or the autocomplete functions available in Google Search: a simple tool to save time. Dynamic email works by sucking a small portion of the web directly into the email pane, automating a particular task.
Here’s an example: In Google Docs, if a collaborator comments on a line in a sales contract, they can notify you via Gmail to take action. Instead of a link to the document that you’re forced to open, you can simply comment directly in the email, and the comment will be added to the document in question.

Virtual reality proponents see 5G as part of the answer to an vexing problem: What happens if you want high-resolution VR, but don’t have a powerful enough PC to run it?
Meet cloud VR, the next stage in VR’s evolution. Rendering the scene on a remote server and then streaming it to a headset eliminates the need for a powerful CPU. But fail to deliver a responsive experience, and users get disoriented and nauseous. A series of demos hosted by AT&T and Ericsson on Monday suggested a number of solutions, all using 5G as a high-speed, low-latency backhaul that proponents think could make cloud VR a future reality.
Eventually, the AR/VR industry even hopes you’ll take the technology outside, perhaps fulfilling the promise that Google Glass once offered. But to do so, you’ll need a high-bandwidth, low-latency wireless infrastructure. Here again, the 5G industry is volunteering.
BioWare’s Anthem makes one hell of a first impression, and today, it got even stronger—at least if you’re a gaming geek who fetishizes ultra-fast frame rates. An update rolled out today that adds support for Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology, which uses machine learning and the dedicated tensor cores inside GeForce RTX graphics cards to make your games play faster. Anthem’s level-up comes hot on the heels of RTX features debuting in games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Metro Exodus.
