A Biblical Case for Annihilation — Dr. Bart Ehrman

Posted by in categories: education, neuroscience

Annihilationism is the belief that unbelievers will not experience an eternity of suffering in hell, but will instead be “extinguished.” Dr. Bart Ehrman discusses why Jesus and Paul believed in annihilation. Full video: • Exploring Early Christian Narratives…

Dr. Bart Ehrman is the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he has taught thousands of students and won numerous awards.

Swiss scientists invent healthier and more sustainable chocolate

Posted by in category: sustainability

Good news for whom? Producers or consumers? On a scale 1 to 10 is this healthier or not from traditional dark chocolate.

Cocoa fruit contains other valuable ingredients that have been underutilised until now, the researchers say.

Startup claims they have created AI head transplant system, plans to perform first procedure within decade

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

Scientists put their heads together for an insane medical breakthrough.

Neuroscience and biomedical engineering startup BrainBridge announced that it has created an AI-mechanized system for performing head transplants.

The procedure would graft a head onto the body of a brain-dead donor, maintaining the memories, cognitive abilities and consciousness of the transplanted individual.

This AI Paper Introduces the Scientific Generative Agent: A Unified Machine Learning Framework for Cross-Disciplinary Scientific Discovery

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

I found this on NewsBreak: #Design

Leveraging advanced computational techniques in physical sciences has become vital for accelerating scientific discovery. This involves integrating large language models (LLMs) and simulations to enhance hypothesis generation, experimental design, and data analysis. Automating these processes aims to streamline and democratize access to cutting-edge research tools, pushing the boundaries of scientific knowledge and improving efficiency across various scientific domains.

Researchers face a significant challenge in effectively simulating observational feedback and integrating it with theoretical models in physical sciences. Traditional methods often need a universal approach that can be applied across various scientific fields, leading to inefficiencies and limiting the potential for innovative discoveries. The need for a more comprehensive and adaptable framework is evident to address this issue and advance scientific inquiry.

The world’s largest chipmaker could flip a kill switch and remotely disable its machines in the event of an invasion

Posted by in category: computing

I found this on NewsBreak:

TSMC is the world’s largest chipmaker, and it produces a massive percentage of the world’s advanced computer chips—by some estimates over the past few years, even around 90%. What happens if something were to happen in that part of the world to disturb this chipmaking ability? It’d be catastrophic, of course, but TSMC and its main machine supplier, Dutch company ASML, say the machines wouldn’t fall into hostile hands.

Citing people close to the matter, Bloomberg reports both TSMC and ASML have ways to disable the lithographic machines located in Taiwan. This kill switch would be able to be remotely activated, should such a drastic action ever be required.
