A team of researchers from Beijing has created a generator “capable” of converting hot gas at hypersonic speeds into a powerful electric current.

The researchers claimed that the magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) generator yielded more than ten times the power generated in previous experiments.

Posted by in categories: finance, internet, robotics/AI

The results highlight some potential strengths and weaknesses of ChatGPT.

Some of the world’s biggest academic journal publishers have banned or curbed their authors from using the advanced chatbot, ChatGPT. Because the bot uses information from the internet to produce highly readable answers to questions, the publishers are worried that inaccurate or plagiarised work could enter the pages of academic literature.

Several researchers have already listed the chatbot as a co-author in academic studies, and some publishers have moved to ban this practice.

Six Things You Didn’t Know About ChatGPT, Stable Diffusion And The Future Of Generative AI

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

Artificial intelligence will be 2023’s.

Perhaps nothing indicates this better than OpenAI and its conversational robot ChatGPT. Forbes estimates that it’s already exceeded 5 million users in less than 60 days from launch.


Then, there’s Stability AI’s open-source image generation model Stable Diffusion, which has been used on pop music videos, Hollywood movies and by more than 10 million people on a daily basis. Stability’s brash CEO Emad Mostaque predicts the “dot-AI bubble” is coming. If OpenAI (recently valued at $29 billion) and Stability ($1 billion, off virtually no revenue) are any indication, it’s already begun. While the experts Forbes spoke to have different views on how the market will play out, one thing is for sure: soon, AI will be affecting the way that you work, like it or not.

What Can Past Technological Revolutions Tell Us About Today?

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI

While the furor around robots taking our jobs has largely died down in recent years (not least due to the lack of any real evidence that it’s happening), it remains inevitable that the introduction of new technologies will cause disruption in the labor market.

“Throughout history the introduction of new technologies has had an inevitable impact on the labour market, whether through displacing jobs, creating new ones, or significantly altering those that already exist,” Alexander Dick, Executive Chairman of cloud technology firm VeUP says.


Previous technological revolutions significantly disrupted the labor market. What lessons can we learn about who and how that disruption played out to prevent the same happening today?

San Francisco Tries To Slow Down Waymo And Cruise Robotaxi Expansion. Should They Go Elsewhere?

Posted by in categories: government, robotics/AI, transportation

In the world of self-driving, the strong leaders are now Google/Alphabet’s Waymo, and GM’s Cruise. Both are headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, and both have thus been keen to deploy in the city of San Francisco itself. No wonder, it’s their hometown. Driving it is a challenge but an important one to handle. On the other hand, it doesn’t snow, though it faces fog. It’s a city that already has many people who don’t own cars, and it was the birthplace of ride-hail, first with the now-defunct Sidecar, then Lyft and Uber. It makes a lot of sense that they both want to be there.

Even so, the city of San Francisco and it’s agencies have not been too happy with the pilot deployments of these companies and recently wrote letters hoping to slow them down. This article examines the conflict between the companies and their city, considering not just the particular points of contention, but also what sort of relationship makes sense here and how to resolve conflicts going forward.

San Francisco doesn’t have the authority to regulate driving. That’s the California DMV. Ride services are under the authority of the California Public Utilities Commission. The federal government regulates the making, importing and selling of vehicles and keeping them safe.
