5 Life-Changing Tech Innovations That Most People Don’t Understand Yet

Posted by in categories: internet, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Tech innovations such as artificial intelligence (AI), quantum computing, the metaverse, web3, and 5G are surrounded by so much hype and spin-doctoring that it can be difficult to get to the crux of things. Here, we try to cut through the hype.

An Introduction to Hokusai’s Great Wave, One of the Most Recognizable Artworks in the World

Posted by in categories: internet, space

You need not be a student of Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock prints to recognize artist Katsushika Hokusai’s Under the Wave Off Kanagawa – or the Great Wave, as it has come to be known.

Like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus, it’s been reproduced on all manner of improbable items and subjected to liberal reimagining – something Sarah Urist Green, describes in the above episode of her series The Art Assignment as “numerous crimes against this image perpetrated across the internet.”

Such repurposing is the ultimate compliment.

New research identifies a cognitive mechanism linked to reduced susceptibility to fake news

Posted by in categories: internet, neuroscience

Insightfulness might play a critical role in the ability to assess the accuracy of information, according to new research published in the journal Thinking & Reasoning. The study found that people with greater insight-based problem solving skills were less likely to fall for fake news.

With rise of the internet and social media, susceptibility to misinformation has become of increasing concern. The authors of the new research sought to better understand the cognitive mechanisms associated with believing in misinformation. They were particularly interested in the role of insight-based problem solving.

“I’m a neuroscientist and study the neural correlates of creativity and idea generation, specifically how we generate ideas accompanied by ‘Aha! moments’ i.e., insights,” said study author Carola Salvi, a professor at the John Cabot University of Rome and an associate faculty member at the University of Texas at Austin. “In this study, we investigated the relationship between insightfulness and aspects of social reasoning, such as believing in fake news, overclaiming, and bullshit.”

Apple is reportedly making an all-in-one cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth chip

Posted by in categories: computing, internet

Apple will apparently start with a chip that replaces the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chip it already uses from Broadcom, but down the line, it might make a chip that includes cellular functionality, too.

Apple is working on a new in-house chip that would power cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth functionality on its devices, according to a report from Bloomberg.

Bloomberg also shared some new information about Apple’s efforts to develop its own cellular modems to replace Qualcomm’s.

New nanowire sensors are the next step in the Internet of Things

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, internet, nanotechnology

A new miniscule nitrogen dioxide sensor could help protect the environment from vehicle pollutants that cause lung disease and acid rain.

Researchers from TMOS, the Australian Research Council Center of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems have developed a sensor made from an array of nanowires, in a square one fifth of a millimeter per side, which means it could be easily incorporated into a silicon chip.

In research published in the latest issue of Advanced Materials, Ph.D. scholar at the Center’s Australian National University team and lead author Shiyu Wei describes the sensor as requiring no , as it runs on its own solar powered generator.

ChatGPT3 — Let The Generative AI Revolution Begin

Posted by in categories: business, internet, robotics/AI

ChatGPT3 became the newest internet sensation last year when it allows users to generate text and answer complex questions in a manner that seems almost human. But, beyond the prowess of ChatGPT3, the underlying impact of the technology — generative AI — on business is only just coming into focus.

ChatGPT3, together with its image-generating cousin Dall-E, has the potential to revolutionize the way content is created, from blogs to white papers, student essays to business correspondence. It provides access to expert-level syntax and grammar to anyone who uses it. But this also raises some important ethical questions.

This is not the first time that technology has captured the attention of the public. IBM Watson made headlines in 2011 when it won the television game show Jeopardy! and Amazon’s AMZN virtual assistant, Alexa, has been answering questions through smart speakers since its commercial debut in 2014.

In this article, let us see how to build a potential darkweb monitoring tool out of ChatGPT

The dark web is a notorious and often misunderstood part of the internet, known for its anonymous communication and the buying and selling of illegal goods and services. It is not indexed by traditional search engines and is only accessible through specialized software, such as the Tor browser.

While the dark web can be a breeding ground for criminal activity, it is also a valuable resource for cyber security firms, law enforcement agencies and cybersecurity and threat intelligence individuals looking to track and monitor illegal activities.

Nigeria becomes the first country in Africa to have access to SpaceX Starlink, Engineer is ‘pretty impressed’ by the high-speed internet service

Posted by in categories: economics, internet, satellites

SpaceX Starlink Internet service will soon be available across the West African country of Nigeria, according to Nigeria’s Minister of Communications and Digital Economy Isa Ali Pantami. SpaceX already delivered some Starlink user terminals to the country to commence services. “As part of the partnership, SpaceX is to provide broadband access across the whole of Nigeria, enabling nationwide access to broadband connectivity way ahead of the December 2025 schedule, as outlined in our national broadband plan,” said Pantami. “With this collaboration with SpaceX’s Starlink, Nigeria is set to be the first African country to introduce the service.” Nigeria’s goals was to cover 90% of the country’s population with reliable internet access by 2025, the goal is now attainable because the Starlink satellite network is easy to set up and capable of beaming high-speed internet to rural and remote communities. SpaceX’s official Starlink Coverage Map says the service is ‘coming soon’ to Nigeria, users must input their address on the website to find out if its already available in their specific area.
