Australian writers have been envisioning AI for a century. Here are 5 stories to read as we grapple with rapid change

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

I found this on NewsBreak:


Australians are nervous about AI. Efforts are underway to put their minds at ease: advisory committees, consultations and regulations. But these actions have tended to be reactive instead of proactive. We need to imagine potential scenarios before they happen.

Of course, we already do this – in literature.

Scientists make breakthrough with advanced technology generating water from thin air — and it could save millions of lives

Posted by in categories: energy, physics, sustainability

I found this on NewsBreak.


Researchers in China have reportedly developed a new technology similar to hydropanels for harvesting water out of thin air that is powered by energy from the sun. The device could be especially useful in dry, arid areas where water — but not sunlight — is hard to come by.

Accelerated aging may be a cause of increased cancers in people under 55

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

An increase in cancers among people 55 years old and younger may be related to accelerated aging in recent generations, according to a study presented at a conference earlier this month.

Experts say years of research support this, though more questions remain to be answered.

Researchers from the Washington University in St. Louis’s medical school presented the findings from their study on accelerated aging earlier this month at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting.

Yes, the Universe is expanding, but if you’ve ever wondered, ‘How fast is it expanding,’ the answer isn’t in terms of a speed at all.

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.
