Gaming is an unconventional new medical resource
How video games can be used for a variety of healthcare applications, including neurological illnesses and even patient care.
Human Immortality Using LLMs
Our own minds are basically opaque LLMs. Not just to others, but to ourselves.
Living to 200 years old: unlocking the secrets of the bowhead whale
Bowhead whales have developed superior DNA repair mechanisms, leading to many fewer mutations.
We’re Already Surfing a ‘Splinternet’, And It’s Only Going to Get More Fragmented
As internet-based companies increasingly rely on exclusive access to users for tracking and advertising, as services and ISPs overcome falling revenue with lock-in agreements, and as government policies change, we’ll see the splintering continue.
Isn’t That Spatial?
An interesting perspective on Apple.
Scientists Just Showed How to Make a Quantum Computer Using Sound Waves
A team has taken crucial first steps towards building a quantum computer that can encode information in phonons, the fundamental quantum units that make up sound waves in much the same way that photons make up light beams.
Synthetic embryos have been implanted into monkey wombs
Embryos made from stem cells—instead of a sperm and egg—have been created from monkey cells for the first time.
This startup wants to copy you into an embryo for organ harvesting
Renewal Bio plans to create realistic synthetic embryos, grown in jars.
Electronic Skin That Can Sense Everything Similar To The Human Skin
Researchers have developed soft & stretchable electronic skin based on the sensory operational ability of real skin.
The Challenges of and Defending Against Adversarial Machine Learning
“The invention of the ship was also the invention of the shipwreck.”
Team creates modular continuous robot based on origami-folded tubes
Modular robots, which are composed of different elements or “modules” that can be reconfigured to carry out specific tasks more effectively.
