Novel hydrogel removes microplastics from water

Posted by in categories: health, materials

Microplastics pose a great threat to human health. These tiny plastic debris can enter our bodies through the water we drink and increase the risk of illnesses. They are also an environmental hazard; found even in remote areas like polar ice caps and deep ocean trenches, they endanger aquatic and terrestrial lifeforms.

OpenAI Fires Researchers for Leaking Information

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

After months of leaks, OpenAI has apparently fired two researchers who are said to be linked to company secrets going public.

As The Information reports based on insider knowledge, the firm has fired researchers Leopold Aschenbrenner — said to be a close ally of embattled cofounder Ilya Sutskever — and Pavel Izmailov.

Both men had worked on OpenAI’s safety team, per the report, though most recently, Aschenbrenner had been working on its so-called “superalignment” efforts while Izmailov was tasked with researching AI reasoning. We’ve reached out to OpenAI and Microsoft, its major investor, for further context.

Tesla reveals humanoid robot technology through new patents

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Tesla has revealed some of its humanoid robot technology through filings for several new patents related to its Optimus robot program.

A few months ago, Tesla unveiled “Optimus Gen 2”, a new generation of its humanoid robot that should be able to take over repetitive tasks from humans.

The new prototype showed a lot of improvements compared to previously underwhelming versions of the robot, and it gave some credibility to the project.

Consistently Exercising 2–3 times a week over the Long Term linked to Lower Current Insomnia Risk

Posted by in category: health

Consistently exercising 2–3 times a week over the long term is linked to a lower current risk of insomnia as well as the ability to clock up the recommended 6–9 hours of shut-eye every night, suggests an international 10-year study published in the open access journal BMJ Open.

Regular exercise is associated with better overall health, and several studies have suggested that physical activity promotes better quality sleep and may improve symptoms of chronic insomnia, note the researchers.

But it’s not entirely clear how much gender, age, weight (BMI), overall fitness, general health, and exercise type contribute to this association, they add.
