A new study has found that feeding dogs uncooked meat increases their risk of excreting E. coli that is resistant to a widely-used antibiotic, thereby increasing the potential that the bacteria will be passed on to owners and other people and cause infections that may be difficult to treat.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Dogs, Antibiotic-resistant bacteria, University of Bristol
For centuries, shipworms have vexed mariners by boring into – and consuming – the hulls of wooden ships and boats. Soon, though, we may actually be eating those "worms," as they have successfully been farmed for the first time.Continue ReadingCategory: Good Thinking, LifestyleTags: University of Plymouth, University of Cambridge, Aquaculture, Sustainable
Following years of controversy, including whistleblowers reporting of rushed experimental “hack jobs” that resulted in as many as 1,500 animal fatalities, Elon Musk's brain-chip implant company has begun recruiting for its landmark first human trial.Continue ReadingCategory: Computers, TechnologyTags: Elon Musk, Neuralink, Disability, Implant, Brain, Neural Network, Neuroscience
A new computer-trained scent model has done better than humans at identifying odors. In analyzing 500,000 potential odor molecules that had never before been synthesized, it also handily did work that would take 70 person-years to complete.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Neural Network, Artificial Intelligence, Scent, Electronic Nose, University of Pennsylvania
the steel eyeball with camera called ‘the orb’ verifies if the user is a real human before they can use the new cryptocurrency ‘worldcoin’, founded by the co-creator of chatGPT. The post chatGPT founder launches iris-scanning orb to tell humans apart from AI in crypto worldcoin appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Some sharks get a new set of teeth every few weeks, while crocodiles can go through thousands of chompers in their long lifetimes. Yet the ability to endlessly replace our pearly whites is something that’s eluded us and nearly all other mammals. By the time our 32 ‘adult’ teeth grow in, that’s as good as it gets.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Dental, Teeth, Age-Related, antibodie
Even though we could, most of us don’t want to eat the same food for every meal. Now researchers have discovered it's the same for African elephants, whose diverse and individualistic food selection shows they're incredibly discerning at the dinner table.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Elephant, Diet, Brown University
Looking for evidence of bite marks that hinted at prehistoric predators hunting our ancient relatives, one researcher has instead found clues to the oldest record of butchering and potential cannibalism instead.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Smithsonian, Fossils, Archeology, Bones
Is there anything ChatGPT can’t do? Yes, of course, but the list appears to be getting smaller and smaller. Now, researchers have used the large language model to help them design and construct a tomato-picking robot.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: LLM (Large Language Model), GPT, Robot, Delft University of Technology, EPFL
Researchers got tiny worms high on cannabis to see how it affected their food preferences and found striking similarities between them and us. The discovery could lead to the development of targeted drug therapies.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Cannabis, Food, University of Oregon, Drugs is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
