Paradox of ultramassive black hole formation solved by supercomputer

Posted by in categories: cosmology, evolution, supercomputing

With a gravitational field so strong that not even light can escape its grip, black holes are probably the most interesting and bizarre objects in the universe.

Due to their extreme properties, a theoretical description of these celestial bodies is impossible within the framework of Newton’s classical theory of gravity. It requires the use of general relativity, the theory proposed by Einstein in 1915, which treats gravitational fields as deformations in the fabric of space-time.

Black holes are usually formed from the collapse of massive stars during their final stage of evolution. Therefore, when a black hole is born, its mass does not exceed a few dozen solar masses.

The AI Time Machine: When Will Superintelligence Arrive?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI, supercomputing, time travel

Buckle up, because we’re entering the era of thinking machines that make humans look like chattering chimps! But don’t worry about polishing your resume to impress our future robot overlords just yet. The experts are wildly divided on when superintelligent AI will actually arrive. It’s like we’re staring at an AI time machine without knowing if it will teleport us to 2 years from now or 2 decades into the future!

In one corner, we have Mustafa Suleyman from Inflection AI. He says take a chill pill, we’ve got at least 10–20 more years before the AI apocalypse. But hang on…his company just whipped up the world’s 2nd biggest AI supercomputer! It’s cruising with 3X the horsepower of GPT-4, the chatbot with reading skills rivaling a university professor. So something tells me Suleyman’s timeline is slower than your grandma driving without her glasses.

Google’s DeepMind AI can make better weather forecasts than supercomputers

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI, supercomputing

DeepMind’s new machine learning algorithm takes less than a minute to make its forecasts and can run on a desktop. But it won’t replace traditional forecasts anytime soon.

The Future of Biology: Decoding Cell and Tissue Mechanics in 3D With Active Matter Theory

Posted by in categories: biological, information science, mathematics, supercomputing

Open-source supercomputer algorithm predicts patterning and dynamics of living materials and enables studying their behavior in space and time.

Biological materials are made of individual components, including tiny motors that convert fuel into motion. This creates patterns of movement, and the material shapes itself with coherent flows by constant consumption of energy. Such continuously driven materials are called “active matter.” The mechanics of cells and tissues can be described by active matter theory, a scientific framework to understand shape, flows, and form of living materials. The active matter theory consists of many challenging mathematical equations.

Are You Secretly A Quantum Computer?

Posted by in categories: neuroscience, quantum physics, supercomputing

How are we so smart? We seem to be able to make process data with ease, doing tasks in seconds that take supercomputers much longer. Well, one thought is that we fundamentally take advantage of quantum mechanics to perform calculations similar to a quantum computer. This would give us a biologically produced quantum speed up in our brains. Until recently this was just a thought, there is no evidence that this is true. Well, now scientists believe that they may have found evidence of quantum interaction in our brains. Even more importantly, they showed that these quantum interactions are related to our consciousness. In this video, I discuss these latest results.

Unlocking the Secrets of Life: Scientists Solve Century-Old Biological Mysteries With Active Matter Theory

Posted by in categories: biological, information science, mathematics, supercomputing

An open-source advanced supercomputer algorithm predicts the patterning and dynamics of living materials, allowing for the exploration of their behaviors across space and time.

Biological materials consist of individual components, including tiny motors that transform fuel into motion. This process creates patterns of movement, leading the material to shape itself through coherent flows driven by constant energy consumption. These perpetually driven materials are called “active matter.”

The mechanics of cells and tissues can be described by active matter theory, a scientific framework to understand the shape, flows, and form of living materials. The active matter theory consists of many challenging mathematical equations.

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) in Dresden, the Center for Systems Biology Dresden (CSBD), and the TU Dresden have now developed an algorithm, implemented in an open-source supercomputer code, that can for the first time solve the equations of active matter theory in realistic scenarios.
