Radical new theory finally unites gravity, spacetime, and the quantum realm

Posted by in categories: innovation, quantum physics

In a groundbreaking announcement, physicists from University College London (UCL) have presented a radical theory that unifies the realms of gravity and quantum mechanics while preserving the classical concept of spacetime, as outlined by Einstein.

This innovative approach, detailed in two simultaneously published papers, challenges over a century of scientific consensus and proposes a revolutionary perspective on the fundamental nature of our universe.

Modern physics rests on two contradictory pillars: quantum theory, which rules the microscopic world, and Einstein’s theory of general relativity, explaining gravity through spacetime curvature. These theories, despite their individual successes, have remained irreconcilable, creating a significant rift in our understanding of the universe.

AI meets materials science: the promise and pitfalls of automated discovery

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

Are you ready to bring more awareness to your brand? Consider becoming a sponsor for The AI Impact Tour. Learn more about the opportunities here.

Last week, a team of researchers from the University of California, Berkeley published a highly anticipated paper in the journal Nature describing an “autonomous laboratory” or “A-Lab” that aimed to use artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics to accelerate the discovery and synthesis of new materials.

Dubbed a “self-driving lab,” the A-Lab presented an ambitious vision of what an AI-powered system could achieve in scientific research when equipped with the latest techniques in computational modeling, machine learning (ML), automation and natural language processing.

Tesla navigation adds speed camera awareness and more in update

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

Tesla’s vehicles can now recognize speed cameras as of its latest update, along with several other navigation features that will reportedly be coming soon.

Code sleuth and Tesla update observer Greentheonly said on Sunday that Tesla software update 2023.27.12 has added the speed camera awareness feature along with other camera awareness capabilities. The update includes the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta version, and it was first spotted in a Tesla vehicle on Saturday, according to Teslascope.

The software update also includes red light camera awareness, including those for fixed and mobile versions, and a combined awareness for red lights and speed cameras. Green also says that several other navigation features appear to be right around the corner, including U-turn control and an “avoid construction on route” setting, as found in internal code for Tesla’s maps system.

Massive Planet Challenges Current Planet Formation Theories

Posted by in category: space

“This discovery really drives home the point of just how little we know about the universe,” said Dr. Suvrath Mahadevan. “We wouldn’t expect a planet this heavy around such a low-mass star to exist.”

A recent study published in Science examines exoplanet LHS 3154b that orbits its parent star in just 3.7 days but is 13.2 times as massive as the Earth wit | Space.

‘Halo’ Device Coming in 2025 Is Designed to Induce Lucid Dreams

Posted by in category: neuroscience

A new venture-backed startup is capitalizing on the productivity that can be channeled while lucid dreaming, Fortune reports.

Lucid dreaming is a state of being aware that you are dreaming during your sleep cycle and the ability to control or manipulate the dream narrative. As many as 70% of people experience the phenomenon at least once in their lifetime.

Prophetic, founded earlier this year, is tapping into a new unconscious market with an innovative headpiece called the “Halo”

DickHeads Podcast #31 — Counter-Clock World — with Jayaprakash Satyamurthy

Posted by in category: food

The ‘not a book club book club’ podcast on PKD, his books, and influence.

Remain calm, smoke your sogum, and pay no attention to all those old-born repopulating our world. Unfortunately for Sebastian Hermes and his crew of resuscitation technicians, it’s not that easy after discovering the slowly resurrecting corpse of a major religious leader. Join the DickHeads and writer/musician Jayaprakash Satyamurthy as they discuss PKD’s 21st published novel, Counter-Clock World. Plus: Food as a 4-letter word. The history of the scifi scene in Bangalore. And how to not kink shame sogum smokers.
