New study finds trees and greenery in virtual reality might make our brains happy
https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10 … 19597/full

Green environments are said to have a positive impact on spontaneous physical activity and well-being. However, high quality psychological measures in natural settings are difficult to collect. In the present study, we offer a detailed report on how virtual reality may provide a controlled environment for immersive user testing. Virtual Reality (VR) was here used to test the impact of colorful floor markings on the spontaneous speed of walking, gaze behaviour, as well as perceived changes in and physiological mesures of affective states.

AI experts called on to join the hunt for exoplanets

https://www.spacedaily.com/reports/AI_e … s_999.html

Artificial Intelligence (AI) experts have been challenged to help a new space mission to investigate Earth's place in the universe.

The Ariel Data Challenge 2022, which launches on 30 June, is inviting AI and machine learning experts from industry and academia to help astronomers understand planets outside our solar system, known as exoplanets.

Dr Ingo Waldmann, Associate Professor in Astrophysics, UCL (University College London) and Ariel Data Challenge lead said:

"AI has revolutionised many fields of science and industry in the past years. The field of exoplanets has fully arrived in the era of big-data and cutting edge AI is needed to break some of our biggest bottlenecks holding us back.

Re: Artificial Intelligence AI

GITAI has a facility in the USA,  also working with JAXA and Japanese automaker Toyota it also aims to autonomously execute in-space servicing, assembly, and manufacturing with its S2 robotic arm system in the vacuum of space.

MIT professor calls recent AI development, "the worst case scenario" because progress is rapidly outpacing AI safety research.
https://80000hours.org/podcast/episodes … selection/

     Frankly, this is to me the worst-case scenario we’re on right now — the one I had hoped wouldn’t happen. I had hoped that it was going to be harder to get here, so it would take longer. So we would have more time to do some AI safety.

    I also hoped that the way we would ultimately get here would be a way where we had more insight into how the system actually worked, so that we could trust it more because we understood it. Instead, what we’re faced with is these humongous black boxes with 200 billion knobs on them and it magically does this stuff.

    Max Tegmark

He says that training a black box that does something smart needs to just be stage one in a bigger process. Stage two is: “How do we get the knowledge out and put it in a safer system?”

His favourite MIT project so far involved taking a bunch of data from the 100 most complicated or famous physics equations, creating an Excel spreadsheet with each of the variables and the results, and saying to the computer, “OK, here’s the data. Can you figure out what the formula is?”

For general formulas, this is really hard. About 400 years ago, Johannes Kepler managed to get hold of the data that Tycho Brahe had gathered regarding how the planets move around the solar system. Kepler spent four years staring at the data until he figured out what the data meant: that planets orbit in an ellipse.

Max’s team’s code was able to discover that in just an hour.

Today’s conversation starts off giving a broad overview of the key questions about artificial intelligence: What’s the potential? What are the threats? How might this story play out? What should we be doing to prepare?

Rob and Max then move on to recent advances in capabilities and alignment, the mood we should have, and possible ways we might misunderstand the problem.

They then spend roughly the last third talking about Max’s current big passion: improving the news we consume — where Rob has a few reservations.

They also cover:

    Whether we would be able to understand what superintelligent systems were doing
    The value of encouraging people to think about the positive future they want
    How to give machines goals
    Whether ‘Big Tech’ is following the lead of ‘Big Tobacco’
    Whether we’re sleepwalking into disaster
    Whether people actually just want their biases confirmed
    Why Max is worried about government-backed fact-checking
    And much more

Re: Artificial Intelligence AI

This item was completely unexpected (by me for sure!) ...

I had asked Google something about Kroger, and to my surprise, it came back with news of a collaboration with a UK company, to offer AI assisted warehousing to optimize delivery on online orders.

https://www.supermarketnews.com/technol … house-site

I had asked if Kroger has a presence in Phoenix ...

The Kroger Co. has identified Phoenix as a location for an upcoming Ocado automated customer fulfillment center (CFC) to process online grocery orders.

In November, Kroger announced plans to build a 200,000-square-foot Ocado CFC in the Southwest region. The Cincinnati-based grocer reported late Friday that Phoenix will be the site of the upcoming facility. Construction is slated to start this year, and the warehouse is expected to become operational 24 months after the groundbreaking.

“Kroger continues to accelerate the expansion of our national network to redefine the customer experience,” Gabriel Arreaga, chief supply chain officer at Kroger, said in a statement. “Our partnership with Ocado is and will continue to be rooted in our ability to deliver a value-added customer-centric solution that brings fresh food to customers through our seamless ecosystem.”

The new CFC will support online grocery customers across Arizona, Kroger said.

“This exciting new collaboration will create hundreds of new jobs in Arizona,” stated Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey. “Arizona is proud to be one of the first sites in the country to launch this innovative technology. We thank Kroger and Ocado for their investment in our state.”

In total, Kroger has announced 10 CFCs. Most recently, in late September, the company named Romulus, Mich., as a CFC site, one of three new Ocado facilities that had been announced for the Great Lakes, Pacific Northwest and West. Thus far, Kroger hasn’t identified the locations of the other two sites.

Plans call for Kroger’s first Ocado CFC to open in Monroe, Ohio, in early 2021. The facility, which broke ground in June 2019, will be 335,000 square feet.


Compared with previously announced facilities, which are around 350,000 square feet, the latest CFCs will be smaller. Kroger said the CFCs will measure about 300,000 square feet in the West and 200,000 square feet in the Pacific Northwest. At 135,000 square feet, the Romulus CFC is the smallest announced to date.

Other Ocado CFC locations announced by Kroger include Frederick, Md. (350,000 square feet); Pleasant Prairie, Wis. (350,000 square feet); Groveland, Fla. (375,000 square feet); Forest Park, Ga. (375,000 square feet); and Dallas (350,000 square feet).

“With Kroger, we are developing a game-changing ecosystem for serving online grocery to customers across the United States. This includes Ocado’s automated CFCs across a range of sizes, as well as software to optimize fulfillment in stores for curbside pickup,” according to Luke Jensen, CEO of Ocado Solutions, which has its U.S. headquarters in Tyson, Va. “Powered by Ocado’s state-of-the-art, proprietary technologies, this site will be crucial in bringing unrivaled online grocery experiences to homes across Arizona and wider geographies.”

Kroger and United Kingdom-based Ocado unveiled their partnership in May 2018, saying at the time that they plan to open 20s CFCs in the United States over the next three years. The Ocado CFCs use automation and artificial intelligence to service online grocery orders, and the facilities are expected to expand Kroger’s products to a larger geographic footprint.     

“Phoenix is a global center of innovation with the experienced workforce and tech ecosystem that makes it a perfect location for Kroger’s customer fulfillment center,” commented Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “We are excited to see the potential of an estimated 700 jobs within its first five years of operation. These jobs include but are not limited to transportation, warehousing, robotics and technology, which are four of Phoenix’s workforce strengths. The location also takes advantage of our city’s burgeoning, advanced transportation network. Kroger has long been a major part of the Phoenix economy, and this new expansion is a highly welcomed addition.”

Re: Artificial Intelligence AI

For SpaceNut re #66

Thanks for reporting this egregious violation of the Laws of Robotics:

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Isaac Asimov's "Three Laws of Robotics"
www.auburn.edu › ~vestmon › robotics
About Featured Snippets

It is not surprising (to me at least) that this occurred in Russia.   There seems to be a callous attitude toward human life that has evolved over many centuries in that region.  At the extreme we have the Ukraine war, and at the lowest possible end of the spectrum we have this.

I hope the kid's finger recovers, but the word "crushed" was used, so I'm guessing the manipulator was an industrial grabber which should NOT have been anywhere near a human being.

Necro-mancy is another world of fiction, part of fantasy, the practice of magic or black magic involving communication with the dead or raising the dead as servants.

Now in our real world they animate creatures back to life.

MIT Researchers Created Artificial Synapses 10,000x Faster Than Biological Ones

https://singularityhub.com/2022/08/01/m … ical-ones/

Researchers have been trying to build artificial synapses for years in the hope of getting close to the unrivaled computational performance of the human brain. A new approach has now managed to design ones that are 1,000 times smaller and 10,000 times faster than their biological counterparts.

Despite the runaway success of deep learning over the past decade, this brain-inspired approach to AI faces the challenge that it is running on hardware that bears little resemblance to real brains. This is a big part of the reason why a human brain weighing just three pounds can pick up new tasks in seconds using the same amount of power as a light bulb, while training the largest neural networks takes weeks, megawatt hours of electricity, and racks of specialized processors.

That’s prompting growing interest in efforts to redesign the underlying hardware AI runs on. The idea is that by building computer chips whose components act more like natural neurons and synapses, we might be able to approach the extreme space and energy efficiency of the human brain. The hope is that these so-called “neuromorphic” processors could be much better suited to running AI than today’s computer chips.

Now researchers from MIT have shown that an unusual artificial synapse design that mimics the brain’s reliance on shuttling ions around could actually significantly outperform biological ones. The key breakthrough was finding a material that tolerates extreme electric fields, which dramatically improved the speed with which ions could move.

“The speed certainly was surprising,” Murat Onen, who led the research, said in a press release. “Normally, we would not apply such extreme fields across devices, in order to not turn them into ash. But instead, protons [which are equivalent to hydrogen ions] ended up shuttling at immense speeds across the device stack, specifically a million times faster compared to what we had before.”
