BREAKING🚨: Scientists create the 5th form of matter for 6 minutes

Posted by in category: quantum physics

In a ground-breaking experiment, scientists have successfully created the fifth form of matter, known as the Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), for a remarkable duration of six minutes.

This major accomplishment has the potential to revolutionize our understanding of quantum mechanics and open the door to new technological advancements. In this article, we will explore the significance of this achievement, the nature of BECs, and the potential applications of this newfound knowledge.

DNA Double Helix Splits Due to Invasive Nature of Unzipping Process

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Scientists had a hard time reconstructing how complex molecular parts are being held together. However, that was before SISSA’s Cristian Micheletti and his team studied how the DNA double helix unzips when translocated at high velocity through a nanopore.

MIT is testing light and sound to combat Alzheimer’s

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Our brains aren’t limited to producing just one type of brain wave at a time, but usually, one type is dominant, and the type it is can often be linked to your level of alertness: delta waves may dominate when you sleep, while gamma waves might dominate when you concentrate intensely.

The idea: Researchers have previously observed that people with Alzheimer’s — a devastating neurological disease affecting more than 6 million people in the US alone — may have weaker and less in-sync gamma waves than people who don’t have the disease.

Organoids — growing mini BRAINS

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Organoids are an incredible tool for research into the brain. Cerebral organoids are created by growing human stem cells in a bioreactor. They might be the key to unlocking the answers to many of our questions about the brain. We explain how they’re made and some of the discoveries they’ve helped with so far!

Microsoft Researchers Claim GPT-4 Is Showing “Sparks” of AGI

Posted by in categories: futurism, robotics/AI

Fresh on the heels of GPT-4’s public release, a team of Microsoft AI scientists published a research paper claiming the OpenAI language model — which powers Microsoft’s now somewhat lobotomized Bing AI — shows “sparks” of human-level intelligence, or artificial general intelligence (AGI).

Emphasis on the “sparks.” The researchers are careful in the paper to characterize GPT-4’s prowess as “only a first step towards a series of increasingly generally intelligent systems” rather than fully-hatched, human-level AI. They also repeatedly highlighted the fact that this paper is based on an “early version” of GPT-4, which they studied while it was “still in active development by OpenAI,” and not necessarily the version that’s been wrangled into product-applicable formation.

Disclaimers aside, though, these are some serious claims to make. Though a lot of folks out there, even some within the AI industry, think of AGI as a pipe dream, others think that developing AGI will usher in the next era of humanity’s future; the next-gen GPT-4 is the most powerful iteration of the OpenAI-built Large Language Model (LLM) to date, and on the theoretical list of potential AGI contenders, GPT-4 is somewhere around the top of the list, if not number one.

Researchers devise new strategies to overcome a key CRISPR flaw

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

It’s a long-debated flaw in CRISPR: When you try to give Cas9 to a patient to snip its DNA, that person’s immune system may recognize that the protein comes not from us but from our ancient microbial foes. And it might then attack.
