Quantum Quasiparticle Sandwiches: Serving Up a New Era of Efficient Computing

Posted by in categories: computing, education, engineering, quantum physics

A perovskite-based device that combines aspects of electronics and photonics may open doors to new kinds of computer chips or quantum qubits.


MIT is an acronym for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It is a prestigious private research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts that was founded in 1861. It is organized into five Schools: architecture and planning; engineering; humanities, arts, and social sciences; management; and science. MIT’s impact includes many scientific breakthroughs and technological advances. Their stated goal is to make a better world through education, research, and innovation.

Vitalik Buterin Exclusive Interview: Longevity, AI and More

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cryptocurrencies, life extension, robotics/AI

Don’t try finding Zuzalu on a map; it doesn’t exist anymore. It was a “pop-up city” conceived by the tech entrepreneur Vitalik Buterin, creator of Ethereum, and a group of like-minded people to facilitate co-living and collaboration in fields like crypto, network states, AI, and longevity. It was also, in substantial part, funded by Vitalik.

Zuzalu, located on the Adriatic coast of Montenegro, began its short history on March 25 and wound down on May 25. It was a complex and memorable phenomenon, and I’m wrapping my mind around a larger article in the works.

Usually, I don’t eat breakfast due to my intermittent fasting regimen, but in Zuzalu, breakfast, served at a particular local restaurant, was the healthiest meal of the day. Also, it was free (kudos to Vitalik, and more on that later). Most importantly, it was the place to meet new people.

Autonomous City Car For Multi-Using Taxi System Concept

Posted by in categories: policy, robotics/AI, transportation

The advent of autonomous-vehicle (AV) technology promises to upend urban mobility and transportation policy. Yet After years of development, with updates here and there from major players in the autonomous vehicle (AV) industry, we’re beginning to see some significant momentum building behind self-driving cars.

These vehicles are starting to hit the streets in limited pilot programs that test their ability to navigate real-world driving environments. Autonomous city car for taxi-sharing. It is a smart car.

Startups serve “world’s first” lab-grown fish filets

Posted by in categories: climatology, sustainability

A pair of food tech startups have teamed up to create what they say are the world’s first lab-grown fish filets — and they used a 3D printer to serve them.

The challenge: Demand for seafood is expected to nearly double by 2050 due to a growing population and increasing incomes, but overfishing, climate change, ocean pollution, and other factors pressure the seafood industry’s ability to satisfy the world’s hunger for fish.

A new AI lie detector reveals their “inner thoughts”

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

“Wish I had this to cite,” lamented Jacob Andreas, a professor at MIT, who had just published a paper exploring the extent to which language models mirror the internal motivations of human communicators.

Jan Leike, the head of alignment at OpenAI, who is chiefly responsible for guiding new models like GPT-4 to help, rather than harm, human progress, responded to the paper by offering Burns a job, which Burns initially declined, before a personal appeal from Sam Altman, the cofounder and CEO of OpenAI, changed his mind.

SpaceX Dragon capsule carrying private Ax-2 astronauts splashes down off Florida coast (video)

Posted by in category: space travel

The four astronauts of the private Ax-2 mission returned to Earth in their SpaceX Dragon capsule late Tuesday night (May 30).

That Dragon, named Freedom, undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) earlier in the day at 11:05 a.m. EDT (1505 GMT), ending a 10-day mission that included eight days docked at the orbiting lab. Freedom returned to Earth 12 hours later with a flawless splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Panama City, Florida at 11:04 p.m. EDT (0304 GMT on May 31), ending the Ax-2 mission by SpaceX for the Houston-based company Axiom Space.

AI intelligence could cause human extinction say tech leaders

Posted by in categories: existential risks, robotics/AI

As apocalyptic warnings go, today is right up there. Some of the world’s most influential tech geniuses and entrepreneurs say AI risks the extinction of humanity.

Having lobbed the ball firmly in the court of global leaders and lawmakers the question is: will they have any idea what to do about it?
