Can Plastic Waste Go Away?

Posted by in category: materials

How do catalysts work? When exposed to a target material, the interaction alters the molecular structure of the target without changing the catalyst.

Instead of waste plastic ending up in our oceans and landfills, we can turn it into feedstock for new hydrocarbon-based materials.

An expanding universe is simulated in a quantum droplet

Posted by in categories: cosmology, mathematics, quantum physics

Unfortunately for the field of cosmology, there is only one universe. This makes performing experiments in the same way as other scientific fields quite a challenge. But it turns out that the universe and the quantum fields that permeate it are highly analogous to quantum fluids like Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs), at least from a mathematical point of view. These fluids can be the subject of experiments, allowing cosmology to be studied in the lab.

\r \r.

In a paper published in Nature, researchers at Heidelberg University in Germany have for the first time used a BEC to simulate an expanding universe and certain quantum fields within it. This allows for the study of important cosmological scenarios. Not only is the universe currently expanding, but it is believed that in the first fractions of a second after the Big Bang it underwent a period of extremely rapid expansion known as “inflation.” This process would have expanded the microscopic fluctuations of quantum fields in the early universe to the size of galaxy clusters, seeding the large-scale structure of our universe today.

We’re one step closer to a meaty cyberpunk future as scientists create a ‘living computer’ using 80,000 mouse brain cells

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

Scientists in the US managed to put together a living computer by cultivating over 80,000 mouse stem cells (opens in new tab) (via IT Home) (opens in new tab). One day, the hope is to have a robot that uses living muscle tissue to sense and process information about its environment.

Researchers at the University of Illinois have used tens of thousands of living mouse brain cells to build a computer that can recognize patterns of light and electricity. The team presented their findings at the American Institute of Physics in the form of a computer about the size of your palm.

Robot lawyer’ creator on suit: ‘We’re going to fight

Posted by in categories: law, robotics/AI

(NewsNation) — The world’s first “robot lawyer” is facing a new obstacle: a lawsuit from Chicago-based law firm Edelson PC.

Joshua Browder’s brainchild “DoNotPay” is at the center of the suit. The app uses artificial intelligence and claims it can “fight corporations, beat bureaucracy and sue anyone at the press of a button.”

This time around, Browder says it will be his turn to fight in court. In a proposed class action, Edelson said “DoNotPay” is “not actually a robot, a lawyer, nor a law firm” and claimed their client Jonathan Faridian used the app but received “substandard and poorly done” results.

Google CEO tells employees that 80,000 of them helped test Bard A.I., warns ‘things will go wrong’

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

“As more people start to use Bard and test its capabilities, they’ll surprise us. Things will go wrong,” Pichai wrote in an internal email to employees Tuesday viewed by CNBC. “But the user feedback is critical to improving the product and the underlying technology.”

The message to employees comes as Google launched Bard as “an experiment” Tuesday morning, after months of anticipation. The product, which is built on Google’s LaMDA, or Language Model for Dialogue Applications, can offer chatty responses to complicated or open-ended questions, such as “give me ideas on how to introduce my daughter to fly fishing.”

Alphabet shares were up almost 4% in mid-day trading following the announcement.
