Charge travels like light in bilayer graphene

Posted by in categories: computing, nanotechnology, particle physics

An international research team led by the University of Göttingen has demonstrated experimentally that electrons in naturally occurring double-layer graphene move like particles without any mass, in the same way that light travels.

Furthermore, they have shown that the current can be “switched” on and off, which has potential for developing tiny, energy-efficient transistors – like the light switch in your house but at a nanoscale.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, and the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Japan, were also involved in the research. The results were published in Nature Communications (“Probing the tunable multi-cone band structure in Bernal bilayer graphene”).

AI could gobble up a quarter of all electricity in the U.S. by 2030 if it doesn’t break its energy addiction, says Arm Holdings exec

Posted by in categories: mobile phones, robotics/AI

Right now generative AI has an “insatiable demand” for electricity to power the tens of thousands of compute clusters needed to operate large language models like OpenAI’s GPT-4, warned chief marketing officer Ami Badani of chip design firm Arm Holdings.

If generative AI is ever going to be able to run on every mobile device from a laptop and tablet to a smartphone, it will have to be able to scale without overwhelming the electricity grid at the same time.

“We won’t be able to continue the advancements of AI without addressing power,” Badani told the Fortune Brainstorm AI conference in London on Monday. “ChatGPT requires 15 times more energy than a traditional web search.”

Never-Before-Seen Quantum Hybrid State Discovered on Arsenic Surface

Posted by in categories: mathematics, particle physics, quantum physics

Physicists have just found something no one expected, lurking on the surface of an arsenic crystal.

While undertaking a study of quantum topology – the wave-like behavior of particles combined with the mathematics of geometry – a team found a strange hybrid of two quantum states, each describing a different means of current.

“This finding was completely unexpected,” says physicist M. Zahid Hasan of Princeton University. “Nobody predicted it in theory before its observation.”

Why Elon Musk’s Neuralink brain implant reframes our ideas of self-identity

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, neuroscience

The extended mind — For decades, philosophers have debated the borders of personhood: where does our mind end, and the external world begin? On a simple level, you might assume that our minds rest within our brains and bodies. However, some philosophers have proposed that it’s more complicated than that.


When we merge mind and machine, the traditional borders of the self dissipate, says philosopher Dvija Mehta.
