Every Otaku’s Dream: Companion AI

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

In the modern world, there is currently a loneliness epidemic. However, recently, nations like Japan have made *cough* advances with technologies such as the Gatebox that provide companion AIs. In this video, I will dive deeper into the concept and practicality of such companion AIs.

The Most Sensitive Optical Receivers Yet for for Laser-Beam Based Space Communications

Posted by in categories: internet, space

Communications in space demand the most sensitive receivers possible for maximum reach, while also requiring high bit-rate operations. A novel concept for laser-beam based communications, using an almost noiseless optical preamplifier in the receiver, was recently demonstrated by researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.

In a new paper published in the scientific journal Nature: Light Science & Applications, a team of researchers describes a free-space optical transmission system relying on an optical amplifier that, in principle, does not add any excess noise — in contrast to all other preexisting optical amplifiers, referred to as phase-sensitive amplifiers (PSAs).

The researchers’ new concept demonstrates an unprecedented receiver sensitivity of just one photon-per-information bit at a data rate of 10 gigabits per second.

The Pentagon Wants to Send Cargo Rockets Around the World in Minutes—with Elon Musk’s Help

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, military, space travel

The Pentagon’s Transportation Command and Elon Musk’s SpaceX are teaming up to examine using rockets to ship cargo through space. The plan raises the prospect of sending urgently needed supplies to U.S. troops anywhere on Earth, within minutes. While the idea is technically feasible, there are several factors, including cost and preparation time, that could make it unworkable.

Tour of the Asteroid Bennu

Posted by in categories: materials, space

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx Asteroid Sample Return Mission now knows much more about the material it will be collecting in just a few weeks.

Goddard’s Amy Simon found that carbon-bearing, organic material is widespread on the asteroid’s surface, including at the mission’s primary sample site, Nightingale, where OSIRIS-REx will make its first sample collection attempt on Oct.20.

These and other findings indicate that hydrated minerals and organic material will likely be present in the collected sample.
