NASA invites students to provide solutions for moon landing dust clouds

Posted by in categories: innovation, space travel

In a quest to expand human settlement to the moon and beyond, NASA and industry partners are developing landing systems to take astronauts from orbit to the lunar surface with its mission Artemis. However, a small but pertinent issue of excessive dust on the surface is posing a considerable challenge for fulfilling such explorations.

To counter this, the agency is seeking ideas from university students for solutions to mitigate the issue related to dusty landings. NASA’s new Human Lander Challenge invites college students to research ways to regulate the plume effect, the process in which a cloud of dust is stirred up by lunar vehicles when rocket engines are used to provide thrust for a smooth landing on unprepared surfaces. NASA had conducted a similar program for students, through its Breakthrough, Innovative, and Game-changing challenge in 2020 for solutions to the same issue.

New water-based battery could help reduce dependence on lithium for energy storage

Posted by in categories: energy, transportation

This could be the end of battery fires and protect battery supply from geopolitical risks.

Researchers at Texas A&M University in the U.S. have been exploring metal-free water-based battery electrodes that could one day be used for a wide range of applications, in place of the lithium-ion batteries popular today.

Lithium-ion batteries are at the core of the electrification of transportation that countries around the world are undertaking to reduce their carbon emissions. While the U.S. has ambitious plans to go shift to this cleaner way of transportation, it is also well aware of its shortcomings in this area.

Scientists predict human lifespan record could be broken by 2060

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

According to statistical analysis, Japanese women, in particular, may live to be 122 in the coming decades.

Whether or not there is a limit to the human lifespan has been a subject of debate for millennia. However, estimates indicate that the maximum lifespan has increased throughout recorded history. For instance, the late Bronze Age’s Hebrews regarded 80 years as the maximum human length, then 1,000 years later, the Romans considered it to be 100 years.

Skiping to the present, Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at the age of 122, currently holds the world record for the oldest person. Despite advances in medical science, no one has been able to break this record so far.

ChatGPT is banned by Italian regulators in the country

Posted by in categories: privacy, robotics/AI

It is as weird as Saudi Arabia giving an AI citizenship.

Italy is the first Western country to prohibit the advanced chatbot ChatGPT according to authorities. The Italian data protection authorities expressed privacy concerns about the model, which was developed by the US start-up OpenAI and is supported by Microsoft.

Authorities also accused OpenAI of failing to verify the age of its ChatGPT users and of failing to enforce laws prohibiting users over the age of 13. Given their relative lack of development, these young users may be exposed to “unsuitable answers” from the chatbot, according to officials.

Arc’s mobile browser is here — and it’s not really a web browser at all

Posted by in category: futurism

It’s a companion app. It’s a sidebar. It’s definitely not trying to replace mobile Safari, at least not yet.

When the team at The Browser Company set out at the beginning of this year to build a mobile web browser, CEO Josh Miller made a rule: we are not allowed to build a default mobile browser.

It won’t replace your default browser, but it might make you want to.

What Happens When ChatGPT Gets A Body?

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

One million years ago. An ancient hominid cradles a large stone—black and glassy—in the palm of his hand, feeling for creases in the rock with his fingertips. In the other hand he grasps the antler of a deer, the bone’s blunt base pointing forward. He strikes the stone with the antler, and it splits along an invisible fracture. He flips it over and strikes again. Another flake of stone falls away. Examining the contours of the rock he continues to flip and strike—sometimes with force, other times with a gentle tap. Gradually, a useful and deadly object emerges from the formless stone. It is a bifaced handaxe, the most important tool that accompanied our ancestors out of Africa.

Movies and television usually depict embodied AI as a malevolent robot. Terror sells. But without access to the physical world and a tactile curiosity, AI will never be fully creative.
