🗞 TECHNOLOGY NEWS💻🔧🖥:
MAKING AI ALGORITHMS SHOW THEIR WORK
Artificial intelligence (AI) learning machines can be trained to solve problems and puzzles on their own instead of using rules that we made for them. But often, researchers do not know what rules the machines make for themselves. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) Assistant Professor Peter Koo developed a new method that quizzes a machine-learning program to figure out what rules it learned on its own and if they are the right ones.
LASER COMMUNICATIONS: EMPOWERING MORE DATA THAN EVER BEFORE
Launching this summer, NASA’s Laser Communications Relay Demonstration (LCRD) will showcase the dynamic powers of laser communications technologies. With NASA’s ever-increasing human and robotic presence in space, missions can benefit from a new way of “talking” with Earth.
A HIGHLY DEXTEROUS ROBOT HAND WITH A CAGING MECHANISM
A team of researchers at Yale University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, has developed a robot hand that employs a caging mechanism. In their paper published in the journal Science Robotics, the group describes their research into applying a caging mechanism to robot hands and how well their demonstration models worked.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
NEW EVIDENCE FOR ELECTRON’S DUAL NATURE FOUND IN A QUANTUM SPIN LIQUID
A new discovery led by Princeton University could upend our understanding of how electrons behave under extreme conditions in quantum materials. The finding provides experimental evidence that this familiar building block of matter behaves as if it is made of two particles: one particle that gives the electron its negative charge and another that supplies its magnet-like property, known as spin.
PREVIOUSLY UNKNOWN LETTER REVEALS EINSTEIN’S THINKING ON BEES, BIRDS AND PHYSICS
The 1949 letter by the physicist and Nobel laureate discusses bees, birds and whether new physics principles could come from studying animal senses.
QUANTUM MACHINE LEARNING HITS A LIMIT
A new theorem from the field of quantum machine learning has poked a major hole in the accepted understanding about information scrambling.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
KELP, MAGGOTS AND MYCOPROTEIN AMONG FUTURE FOODS THAT MUST BE MASS-FARMED TO COMBAT MALNUTRITIONī
Radical changes to the food system are needed to safeguard our food supply and combat malnutrition in the face of climate change, environmental degradation and epidemics, says new report.
TRACE GASES FROM OCEAN ARE SOURCE OF PARTICLES ACCELERATING ANTARCTIC CLIMATE CHANGE
Scientists exploring the drivers of Antarctic climate change have discovered a new and more efficient pathway for the creation of natural aerosols and clouds which contribute significantly to temperature increases.
VICTORIA’S WATCH CATCHMENTS MAY NOT RECOVER FROM DROUGHT, STUDY FINDS
Australian-first research by Monash University discredits the theory that rivers and underground water supplies eventually replenish following droughts or floods. Following the Australian Millennium Drought, one-third of Victoria’s water catchments still had not recovered from drought nearly eight years later. For those water catchments not recovered, roughly 80 per cent showed no evidence of recovering anytime soon.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
NEW RESEARCH REVEALS HIDDEN PROCESSES AT WORK IN THE HEARTS OF LARGE STARS
Astronomers commonly refer to massive stars as the chemical factories of the Universe. They generally end their lives in spectacular supernovae, events that forge many of the elements on the periodic table. How elemental nuclei mix within these enormous stars has a major impact on our understanding of their evolution prior to their explosion. It also represents the largest uncertainty for scientists studying their structure and evolution.
SCIENTISTS FIND MOLECULAR PATTERNS THAT MAY HELP IDENTIFY EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE
Scientists have begun the search for extraterrestrial life in the solar system in earnest, but such life may be subtly or profoundly different from Earth life, and methods based on detecting particular molecules as biosignatures may not apply to life with a different evolutionary history. A new study by a joint Japan/US-based team, led by researchers at the Earth-Life Science Institute (ELSI) at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, reports on a machine learning technique that assesses complex organic mixtures using mass spectrometry to classify them as biological or abiological.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
CONTACT-FREE NANOSCOPY CONCEPT SHOWS POTENTIAL FOR INVESTIGATING CONDUCTIVITY OF MATERIALS
A team of physicists from Germany, the .S. and the U.K. managed to observe the motion of electrons from one atomically thin layer into an adjacent one with nanoscale spatial resolution. The new contact-free nanoscopy concept, which shows great potential for investigations into conducting, nonconducting and superconducting materials, will be introduced in the new volume of the science journal Nature Photonics.
EVERYONE HAS SAT OUTSIDE ON A SUNNY DAY AND BEEN WARMED BY THE SUN’S RAYS.
This happens through a process known as radiative heat transfer: the sun emits light (electromagnetic radiation), which travels to the Earth and heats up the objects that absorb it. Radiative heat transfer is also the mechanism behind thermal cameras.
