Stingray-inspired space probe will explore Venus (science news).

Venus may be Earth’s neighbour, but scientists’ understanding of the planet is relatively limited, especially on the planet’s so-called “dark side.” That knowledge gap will eventually be filled, because University at Buffalo researchers are designing a Stingray-inspired space probe for NASA that might explore the planet like no previous probe. That’s Stingray as in ‘fish’, […]

Computers new leap towards artificial intelligence (science news).

Neural networks that borrow strategies from biology are making profound leaps in their abilities. Is ignoring a goal the best way to make truly intelligent machines? A new paper proposes to find out by training neural networks to look ahead of their next move, allowing them to build strategies from a previous move. The idea […]

Is Planet Nine a primordial Black Hole? (science video).

JMG conducts a little video exploration into the recent idea that the hypothetical Planet Nine outside our solar system may not be a planet at all (this is the thing that causes a gravity-based influence on orbits for trans-Neptunian objects), but instead, could be a small primordial black hole sitting just outside our solar system.

Everything you wanted to know about the multiverse but were afraid to ask (science video).

Caltech research professor Sean Carroll chats about the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics and his new tome on the subject, Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime. It’s certainly interesting to speculate what our reality might actually look like if the many-worlds interpretation is true.

Hello World from quantum computing? Maybe. Maybe not (science news).

How ironic that quantum computing may simultaneously both exist and not exist at the same time. But it’s getting better and better all the time. And one year, coming soon, it’s going to change everything forever. https://techcrunch.com/2019/10/26/quantum-computings-hello-world-moment/ The Offworld Report – the best content offworld SFcrowsnest
