Scientists create plants that store light and radiate it back out

A team at MIT has developed a technique for getting plants to behave like glow-in-the-dark toys—they can absorb light, store it, and then radiate it back out. This team has been working on glowing plants for a while now; in 2019 they debuted plants that were treated with an enzyme based on the same chemical that make fireflies glow (previously). — Read the rest

Ist „Slow Dating“ einen Versuch wert?

Die Pandemie setzte dem Dating-Leben der 24-jährigen Ola ein jähes Ende und läutete eine neue Phase für sie ein. Vor Corona verbrachte sie täglich Stunden damit, nach links und rechts zu swipen, sich mit Menschen zu treffen, von denen sie eigentlich nicht überzeugt war, und sich zu zwingen, „nicht aufzugeben“, um den berühmt-berüchtigten „Einen“ oder die berühmt-berüchtigte „Eine“ zu finden. Seit den letzten eineinhalb Jahren hat sich aber etwas an ihrer Einstellung verändert: Sie hat beschlosse...

Recently, while reading a back issue of one of my favorite journals, the MIT Sloan Review, I stumbled on a research article entitled “The Most Underrated Skill in Management.” That sounded interesting, so I wondered what it had to say. At the conclusion of the third paragraph the authors wrote, “We’ve come to believe that problem formulation is the single most underrated skill in all of management practic...

For Tesla, Facebook and others, AI’s flaws are getting harder to ignore

Anti-vaccine campaigners use tricks like typing “Va ine” to avoid detection, while private gun-sellers post pictures of empty cases on Facebook Marketplace with a description to “PM me.” These fool the systems designed to stop rule-breaking content, and to make matters worse, the AI often recommends that content too. Last year a New York University Stern School of Business study recommended that Facebook double those workers to 30,000 to monitor posts properly if AI isn’t up to the task. One res...

HERMITS: Mechanical Shells for Reconfigurable Robots

HERMITS are tiny experimental robots developed by researchers at MIT’s Media Lab that can move between different “shells” to gain new capabilities. Inspired by hermit crabs, we designed a modular system for table-top wheeled robots to dock to passive attachment modules, defined as “mechanical shells.” Different types of mechanical shells can uniquely extend and convert the motion of robots with embedded mechanisms, so that, as a whole architecture, the system can offer a variety of interact...

Living plant lamps may be on the horizon thanks to MIT

To make the glowing plants, they embedded the plants with specially-engineered nanoparticles that are several hundred nanometers in diameter. (For comparison, a human hair is approximately 80,000 nanometers wide.) — Read the rest

MIT study finds Tesla drivers become inattentive when Autopilot is activated

By the end of this week, potentially thousands of Tesla owners will be testing out the automaker’s newest version of its “Full Self-Driving” beta software, version 10.0.1, on public roads, even as regulators and federal officials investigate the safety of the system after a few high-profile crashes.
