A Generative AI Upped Worker Productivity and Satisfaction—and the Lowest-Skilled Benefited Most

Posted by in categories: economics, robotics/AI

Perhaps not surprisingly, the AI was the most helpful for the least-skilled workers and those who had been with the company for the shortest time. Meanwhile, the highest-skilled and most experienced agents didn’t benefit much from using the AI. This makes sense, since the tool was trained on conversations from these workers; they already know what they’re doing.

“High-skilled workers may have less to gain from AI assistance precisely because AI recommendations capture the knowledge embodied in their own behaviors,” said study author Erik Brynjolfsson, director of the Stanford Digital Economy Lab.

The AI enabled employees with only two months of experience to perform as well as those who’d been in their roles for six months. That’s some serious skill acceleration. But is it “cheating”? Are the employees using the AI skipping over valuable first-hand training, missing out on learning by doing? Would their skills grind to a halt if the AI were taken away, since they’ve been repeating its suggestions rather than thinking through responses on their own?

AI and humans collaborate on first ChatGPT-designed robot

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Is there anything ChatGPT can’t do? Yes, of course, but the list appears to be getting smaller and smaller. Now, researchers have used the large language model to help them design and construct a tomato-picking robot.

Large language models (LLMs) can process and internalize huge amounts of text data, using this information to answer questions. OpenAI’s ChatGPT is one such LLM.

In a new case study, researchers from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) enlisted the help of ChatGPT-3 to design and construct a robot, which might seem strange considering that ChatGPT is a language model.

Quantum simulation of Hawking radiation and curved spacetime with a superconducting on-chip black hole

Posted by in categories: computing, cosmology, quantum physics

Recently, the theory of Hawking radiation of a black hole has been tested in several analogue platforms. Shi et al. report a fermionic-lattice model realization of an analogue black hole using a chain of superconducting transmon qubits with tuneable couplers and show the stimulated Hawking radiation.

Eat Right And You Could Live Longer

Posted by in categories: food, life extension

Eating nutritious food has been shown time and time again to help improve metabolic health and delay aging. But what the appropriate quantities of these dietary macronutrients are has received somewhat varying results.

To investigate what they might be researchers from Waseda University fed isocaloric diets with varying amounts of protein to mice, and their findings are published in GeroScience. According to the researchers, the animals were found to be metabolically healthier when they were fed moderate protein diets, and these findings could provide insight into developing nutritional interventions as well as to improving metabolic health in people.

A Huge Black-Hole just turned its whole magnetic field around

Posted by in categories: computing, cosmology, particle physics

Black holes, cosmic power stations, fuel the luminosity of quasars and active galactic nuclei (AGNs) through their intricate interaction of matter, gravity, and magnetic forces. Despite black holes themselves not possessing a magnetic field, the surrounding dense plasma in the accretion disc does. As this plasma orbits the black hole, its charged particles generate an electric current and consequently a magnetic field.

This magnetic field, assumed to be stable due to the unvarying plasma flow, caused scientists to scratch their heads when they found evidence of its directional change. Such a phenomenon, known as a magnetic reversal, is akin to an imaginary pole of a magnet switching from north to south or vice versa. While not uncommon in stars, and even witnessed in the Sun’s 11-year sunspot cycle or Earth’s infrequent magnetic shifts, such an event was thought improbable for supermassive black holes.

In 2018, a computer-aided sky survey detected a startling transformation in a galaxy 239 million light-years away named 1ES 1927+654, which had suddenly become a hundredfold brighter. Swift Observatory soon reported x-ray and ultraviolet light emissions from this region. Initial speculations suggested a tidal disruption event caused by a star venturing too close to the galaxy’s central supermassive black hole, disrupting gas flow into the accretion disc, as the reason for this unusual luminosity.
