A Huge Black-Hole just turned its whole magnetic field around

Posted by in categories: computing, cosmology, particle physics

Black holes, cosmic power stations, fuel the luminosity of quasars and active galactic nuclei (AGNs) through their intricate interaction of matter, gravity, and magnetic forces. Despite black holes themselves not possessing a magnetic field, the surrounding dense plasma in the accretion disc does. As this plasma orbits the black hole, its charged particles generate an electric current and consequently a magnetic field.

This magnetic field, assumed to be stable due to the unvarying plasma flow, caused scientists to scratch their heads when they found evidence of its directional change. Such a phenomenon, known as a magnetic reversal, is akin to an imaginary pole of a magnet switching from north to south or vice versa. While not uncommon in stars, and even witnessed in the Sun’s 11-year sunspot cycle or Earth’s infrequent magnetic shifts, such an event was thought improbable for supermassive black holes.

In 2018, a computer-aided sky survey detected a startling transformation in a galaxy 239 million light-years away named 1ES 1927+654, which had suddenly become a hundredfold brighter. Swift Observatory soon reported x-ray and ultraviolet light emissions from this region. Initial speculations suggested a tidal disruption event caused by a star venturing too close to the galaxy’s central supermassive black hole, disrupting gas flow into the accretion disc, as the reason for this unusual luminosity.

Galaxy Cluster MACS 1206

Posted by in categories: cosmology, mapping

This image of galaxy cluster MACS J1206.2–0847 (or MACS 1,206 for short) is part of a broad survey with NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

The distorted shapes in the cluster are distant galaxies from which the light is bent by the gravitational pull of an invisible material called dark matter within the cluster of galaxies. This cluster is an early target in a survey that will allow astronomers to construct the most detailed dark matter maps of more galaxy clusters than ever before.

These maps are being used to test previous, but surprising, results that suggest that dark matter is more densely packed inside clusters than some models predict. This might mean that galaxy cluster assembly began earlier than commonly thought.

Why We Need More Collaboration Between EdTech And AI Developers

Posted by in categories: economics, education, robotics/AI

The current education landscape requires close collaboration between edtech and AI developers to leverage their expertise and maximize the impact of AI technology in the sector. It also aims to avoid the negative consequences of redundant efforts, wasted resources and less effective solutions. By effectively applying best practices such as clear communication, alignment of goals, and interdisciplinary collaboration, edtech and AI developers can develop innovative, scalable and effective solutions. The “AI and the Future of Learning: Expert Panel Report” underscores key strategies for successful collaboration between edtech and AI developers. The report highlights key strengths and weaknesses of AI as well as the respective opportunities and barriers to employing AI technologies in the education sector.

Education plays a critical role in promoting social and economic development in a region, and when communities recognize its potential, they are more likely to support educational reforms. These reforms can address any challenges in the sector, such as funding constraints, lack of access to quality education and cultural attitudes that may deny education to particular groups. With the increased adoption of AI in the education sector, potential future developments—including ITS, adaptive assessment, gamification and the use of machine learning—can promote the efficiency of personalized learning.

In the long run, the collaboration between edtech and AI developers holds great potential for transforming education and improving learning outcomes. For this to happen, it is necessary to establish industry standards for AI in education, foster interdisciplinary collaboration between educators and AI experts, and invest in research on AI’s impact on learning outcomes. In this way, we can ensure that AI-powered tools are used effectively and ethically to improve student learning in the 21st century.
