DeepMind, a British company owned by Google, may be on the verge of achieving human-level artificial intelligence (AI). Nando de Freitas, a research scientist at DeepMind and machine learning professor at Oxford University, has said ‘the game is over’ in regards to solving the hardest challenges in the race to achieve artificial general intelligence (AGI). … Read more

Tonga eruption on a par with Krakatoa, study says:

Tonga eruption on a par with Krakatoa, study says:

Tonga’s volcanic eruption in January produced the strongest recorded waves from a volcano since the eruption of Krakatoa in 1883, scientists say. Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai, an underwater volcano in the South Pacific, created sound waves heard as far as Alaska 6,200 miles away when it erupted on January 15. Researchers say the eruption was ‘on … Read more

Some Antarctic ice shelves have GROWN in the last 20 years despite global warming:

Some Antarctic ice shelves have GROWN in the last 20 years despite global warming:

Parts of Antarctica have actually gained ice during the last 20 years, new research reveals, despite the continent suffering significant loss due to global warming. Researchers say that sea ice, pushed against ice shelves by a change in regional wind patterns, may have helped protect these ice shelves from losses. Ice shelves are floating sections … Read more

Astronomers see a nova explosion on a white dwarf for the first time:

Astronomers see a nova explosion on a white dwarf for the first time:

Astronomers in Germany have spotted a fiery ‘nova explosion’ from a white dwarf for the very first time. Researchers observed the event, thanks to data from the joint German-Russian eROSITA X-ray telescope, which is stationed in space about 900,000 miles away. The X-ray flash – dubbed YZ Reticuli – completely overexposed the center of eROSITA’s … Read more

Moon may have been siphoning water from Earth’s atmosphere for billions of years:

Moon may have been siphoning water from Earth’s atmosphere for billions of years:

The moon may have been siphoning water from Earth’s atmosphere for billions of years, storing it up as ice deep inside craters, a new study has found. Research by the University of Alaska Fairbanks suggests that ions making up water are pulled in by the moon as it passes through part of Earth’s magnetosphere. This … Read more

Fungi-based food could halve deforestation by 2050, study claims:

Fungi-based food could halve deforestation by 2050, study claims:

Removing red meat from just one of your weekday dinners could help save Earth’s forests, a new study shows. Scientists in Germany have investigated the environmental impacts of replacing meat with microbial protein – an alternative food option produced by microbes such as fungi in fermentation tanks. Substituting just 20 per cent of meat with … Read more
