Brian Greene — Did The Universe Emerge Inside a Black Hole?

Posted by in categories: cosmology, quantum physics

The big bang theory explains the beginning of our universe. But could the entirety of our universe be inside a black hole?
Theoretical physicist Brian Greene explains this bizarre hypothesis in cosmology.

The idea that our universe may be entirely contained within a black hole is a mind-bending concept that has been explored by physicists for decades.

New analog quantum computers to solve previously unsolvable problems

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, quantum physics, supercomputing

Physicists have invented a new type of analog quantum computer that can tackle hard physics problems that the most powerful digital supercomputers cannot solve.

New research published in Nature Physics by collaborating scientists from Stanford University in the U.S. and University College Dublin (UCD) in Ireland has shown that a novel type of highly-specialized analog computer, whose circuits feature quantum components, can solve problems from the cutting edge of quantum physics that were previously beyond reach. When scaled up, such devices may be able to shed light on some of the most important unsolved problems in physics.

For example, scientists and engineers have long wanted to gain a better understanding of superconductivity, because existing —such as those used in MRI machines, and long-distance energy-efficient power networks—currently operate only at extremely low temperatures, limiting their wider use. The holy grail of materials science is to find materials that are superconducting at room temperature, which would revolutionize their use in a host of technologies.

Physicists Are Pretty Damn Sure We Can Travel Faster Than the Speed of Light, Research Shows

StrictlyVC in conversation with Sam Altman, part one

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

At our StrictlyVC event a few nights ago, Altman was generous with his time, spending an hour with those gathered to talk about the latest at OpenAI (the hottest startup in the world at the moment), as well as answering questions about how his other investments fit into larger themes that he expects to play out — and in the not-distant future.

This is part one of that interview, focused on Altman’s investments, including in Helion Energy, a nuclear fusion company that Altman described at the event as “the other thing beside OpenAI that I spend a lot of time on.” We also talked Twitter, supersonic jets, making babies out of skin cells, and why he’s “not super interested” in crypto.

ChatGPT’s New Tool for Detecting Text Written by AI Doesn’t Work Very Well

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

OpenAI, which released the viral ChatGPT chatbot last year, unveiled a tool that’s intended to help show if text has been authored by an artificial intelligence program and passed off as human.

The tool will flag content written by OpenAI’s products as well as other AI authoring software. However, the company said “it still has a number of limitations — so it should be used as a complement to other methods of determining the source of text instead of being the primary decision-making tool.”

Quantum entanglement breakthrough is world first

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

For the first time, physicists have achieved quantum mechanical entanglement of two stable light sources.

Called “spooky action at a distance” by Einstein, quantum entanglement is a seemingly magical phenomenon. Entangled particles, for example light particles called “photons”, share a physical state. Changes to the physical state of one particle in an entangled pair instantaneously causes the same change to occur in its partner – no matter how far apart they are separated.

While quantum mechanical theory is clear on the existence of this effect in the universe, creating entangled pairs of particles is no trivial feat.
