AI-powered noise-filtering headphones give users the power to choose what to hear

Posted by in category: mobile phones

Noise-canceling headphones are a godsend for living and working in loud environments. They automatically identify background sounds and cancel them out for much-needed peace and quiet. However, typical noise-canceling fails to distinguish between unwanted background sounds and crucial information, leaving headphone users unaware of their surroundings.

ChatGPT will put your data into interactive tables and charts with GPT-4o

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

OpenAI just announced new changes to ChatGPT’s data analysis feature. Users can now create customizable, interactive tables and charts with the AI chatbot’s help that they can later download for presentations and documents. They can also upload files to ChatGPT from Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive.

However, not all ChatGPT users will gain access to the new data analysis features. The upgrade will roll out for ChatGPT Plus, Team, and Enterprise users over the coming weeks. The new data analysis capabilities will be available in GPT-4o, OpenAI’s new flagship model recently released as part of the company’s Spring Update.

Frozen human brain tissue works perfectly when thawed 18 months later

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, neuroscience

In good news for future animation figureheads, there might be a new way to revive frozen brains without damaging them. Scientists in China have developed a new chemical concoction that lets brain tissue function again after being frozen.

Freezing is effective at keeping organic material from decomposing, but it still causes damage. As the water inside turns to ice, the crystals tear apart the cells. That’s why frozen meat or fruit goes a bit mushy after it’s defrosted – but a bigger problem is that it also happens with organs or tissues chilled for transplant or research.

For the new study, scientists at Fudan University in China experimented with various chemical compounds to see which ones might work to preserve living brain tissue during freezing. They started by testing out promising chemicals on brain organoids – small, lab-grown lumps of brain tissue that develop into different types of related cells.
