Distant ‘Space Snowman’ unlocks mystery of how some Dormant Deep Space Objects become ‘Ice Bombs’

Posted by in category: alien life

A new study is shaking up what scientists thought they knew about distant objects in the far reaches of the solar system, starting with an object called the space snowman.

Researchers from Brown University and the SETI Institute found that the double-lobed object, which is officially named Kuiper Belt Object 486,958 Arrokoth and resembles a snowman, may have ancient ices stored deep within it from when the object first formed billions of years ago. But that’s just the beginning of their findings.

Using a new model they developed to study how comets evolve, the researchers suggest this feat of perseverance isn’t unique to Arrokoth but that many objects from the Kuiper Belt—which lies at the outermost regions of the solar system and dates back to the early formation of the solar system around 4.6 billion years ago—may also contain the ancient ices they formed with.

Simultaneous Performance Improvement and Energy Savings with an Innovative Algorithm for 6G Vision Services

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, information science, internet, robotics/AI

Professor Jeongho Kwak’s from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at DGIST has developed a learning model and resource optimization technology that combines accuracy and efficiency for 6G vision services. This technology is expected to be utilized to address the high levels of computing power and complex learning models required by 6G vision services.

6G mobile vision services are associated with innovative technologies such as augmented reality (AR) and autonomous driving, which are receiving significant attention in modern society. These services enable quick capturing of videos and images, and efficient understanding of their content through deep learning-based models.

However, this requires high-performance processors (GPUs) and accurate learning models. Previous technologies treated learning models and computing/networking resources as separate entities, failing to optimize performance and mobile device resource utilization.

Watch: Tesla Optimus takes a walk bare-bones in a new video by Elon Musk

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, sustainability, transportation

When we thought Tesla’s Optimus project was settling into a routine of shirt-folding chores and tasks, Elon Musk threw us a curveball. A new video, shared by the Tesla CEO on X(formerly Twitter), showcases Optimus in its new Gen 2 avatar in a state we haven’t seen before, walking but decidedly undressed.

But unlike the polished presentations we’ve seen before, this time, Optimus is bare-bones, revealing its intricate inner workings in all their unpolished glory.
