Dassault’s newest jet is powered by P&W’s 14,000-pound thrust engine

Posted by in categories: business, transportation

The powerful jet engine will help reduce travel times between popular global destinations in an environment-friendly manner.

Dassault Aviation’s newest business jet Falcon 6X has entered service powered by Pratt and Whitney’s (PW) 812D engines offering 14,000 pounds (lbs) of thrust. The engines underwent rigorous testing since their selection five years ago and will now help the first extra wide-body business jet zoom around the world at 0.9 Mach.

Dassault’s newest offering aims to redefine the travel experience by offering unparalleled comforts of space and luxury in a business jet. The extra wide body design of the aircraft is further enhanced by the “uninterrupted lines” feature of the cabin that de-clutters in interiors like never before.

Space telescope spots ‘superflares’ 10,000 times brighter than Sun — Study

Posted by in categories: energy, physics, space

Scientists have developed a model to better understand the physics of the powerful superflares emitted by stars far beyond our solar system.

Solar flares, which are rapid and strong bursts of energy and radiation that originate from the Sun’s surface, are known to be emitted into space by our Sun.

NASA’s Kepler and TESS missions, however, have discovered several stars may produce superflares that are 100–10,000 times brighter than those emitted by our Sun.

Tianhe Xingyi: China unveils the ‘fastest’ homegrown supercomputer

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI, space travel, supercomputing

No specifications have been revealed, but officials have claimed that it surpasses the capabilities of the famous Tianhe-2 supercomputer.

The National Supercomputing Center (NSC) in Guangzhou, China, has unveiled the Tianhe Xingyi, a homegrown supercomputer, at an industrial event in Guangdong Province, which several media reports have confirmed. The NSC is the parent organization under whose guidance the Tianhe-2 supercomputer was also developed.

Supercomputers are a crucial component of a nation’s progress as they aid in solving the most complex and technical problems. The US has conventionally led the world in hosting the fastest supercomputers, as captured by the TOP500 listings, while also leading in the absolute number of supercomputers available to its researchers.

MIT developed ML-tool for material prediction beats human wisdom

Posted by in category: materials

The tool uses first-principle calculations to arrive at material behavior in a few thousand steps rather than a million possibilities.

How well did the system perform?

The researchers have not yet put the system under extensive analysis but have seen some encouraging results in the limited cases so far.

Meta Launches Web-Based AI Image Generator Trained on Your Instagram Pics

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Much like DALL-E 3, visitors to can provide a prompt, and Meta’s AI will offer several options. The image up top is a selection Meta AI created. If you’re wondering how Meta trained its AI to generate images, the company says it used 1.1 billion publicly visible Facebook and Instagram images.

That raises some questions about consent: after all, many of these images may have been uploaded before AI in its current form existed, and just because someone wanted to share their artwork with the world doesn’t mean they intended for it to train programs to create similar art. Permission to use art and written works for training AI is an ongoing question with evolving AI and has led to several lawsuits that are still working their way through the courts.

For now, the generated art Meta AI creates isn’t watermarked in a way that can’t be hidden. But Meta says it will roll out invisible watermarks soon that shouldn’t be so easy to cover up.

A shape-shifting robotic catheter could make heart surgery safer

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

A beating heart makes for a formidable surgical arena, but a new robotic catheter could someday equip surgeons to operate in the cardiac environment with greater ease.

The device, designed by a team of physicians and engineers at Boston University, possesses shape-shifting capabilities that allow it to be maneuvered through complex anatomy while maintaining enough stability to accomplish surgical objectives within the .

In a study published in Science Advances, the authors demonstrated the robot’s ability to assist with two mock cardiac procedures using animal tissue. The study authors suggest that, with further development, the robotic could make many common heart surgeries far safer and less taxing on the body.
