Thanks to an accidental discovery in the laboratory, researchers were able to improve plant growth and give them resistance to drought and salinity conditions, by exposing their seeds to a plant hormone in a simple and easy-to-apply process
Rai Kodan wrote the book that won the award with the help of artificial intelligence that gave her complete sentences - which the author inserted in the book in its entirety. She estimated that about five percent of the entire text in the book consisted of sentences that she copied directly from the ChatGPT artificial intelligence engine
Let's start with the short and unsurprising summary: researchers trained artificial intelligence to act maliciously - and it did act maliciously. Apparently, the story ends here. But the devil is in the details
In short: researchers have created more tiny robots, which in the future may help heal wounds, restore tissues and even treat diseases. The interesting innovation is that the robots are made of human cells, which joined together by themselves (with a slight drive) and developed means of self-propulsion
A new competition to stop aging with prizes of 101 million dollars
A new study, published in mid-August in the prestigious journal PLOS Biology, reveals a way to decipher the songs playing inside the brain. In doing so, he also provides an explanation about the way in which different areas of the brain perceive and respond to acoustic elements
What will happen to all our stuff? What will happen to our homes, our schools, our neighborhoods, our cities? Who will feed the dog? Who will cut the grass? Although it's a common theme in movies, TV shows, and books, the end of humanity is still a strange thing to think about
The answer to the threats of artificial intelligence on the labor market: lateral roots
Even programmers are starting to fear that ChatGPT will replace them. How real is the threat?
Chinese researchers propose combining genes from tardigrades (water bears) to improve the ability of human cells to deal with radioactive radiation
Autonomous taxis have indeed reached the roads in some cities, but they are still far from replacing taxi drivers, or capturing a significant share of the public transportation market. Private autonomous vehicles - those that are privately owned - have nothing to talk about at all. what went wrong?
What will humans look like a million years after the appearance of the Homo sapiens species?
Less than a month ago, the first comic book produced without illustrators was published. In fact, only two names appear on the main page of the book. The writer of the story is Steve Coulson, and the illustrator is MidJourney: an artificial intelligence that knows how to produce drawings on demand
Surprisingly, it now turns out that artificial intelligences that 'paint', like Dali, can push the world of science forward
Researchers spread transgenic mosquito eggs containing a genetic defect that they transfer to the mosquito population in areas plagued by mosquito-borne diseases, thereby reducing the mosquito population to a considerable extent
Last week I showed the XNUMXth graders how they can write books with the help of artificial intelligence.
Scientists have developed a method to double the annual crop from one to two times, while improving properties in rice that can make it at least partially a perennial plant
Chinese researchers used artificial intelligence to scan combinations of metals and elements and identify compounds that would break down the free radicals that damage hair follicles
Amlek - Scientists have identified a new mechanism that slows down and may even stop the natural aging process of the cells of the immune system
Last Saturday, Ukraine showed Russia - and the whole world - how the wars of the future will be conducted: between robots and humans
When the researchers played the subjects new stories, they found that their transcriber managed to produce sentences that described the stories "fairly well". The transcription is not perfect, but there is certainly a similarity
Scientific and technological progress is based on collaborations, on the exchange of knowledge and experience, on a global market of ideas. Any harm to the ability of scientists to communicate freely across political borders will also harm their ability to produce new knowledge, new ideas and ultimately - also new technologies * and this is even before China's threat to invade Taiwan
In recent years, Kurzweil has been writing his next book - "The Singularity is Closer". Only a few - his closest friends and colleagues - know what the exact content of the book will be. And here, at the futurists' conference, we were exposed to one of them: Dr. Jose Cordeiro, who presented the draft of the new book and shared the most impressive prediction of it
Taxi drivers and many others tend to believe any theory as long as it does not appear in the mainstream media but on fringe sites that profit - financially or politically - from these theories
