Researchers have utilized Meta-learning for Compositionality (MLC) to develop this technology, enabling the neural network to swiftly acquire new words, surpassing the learning rate of ChatGPT.
Researchers have crafted a new kind of artificial brain that mimics the learning and memory processes of our own brains. Comprising nanowire networks, this artificial brain employs resistive memory switching, altering electrical resistance at the wire intersections. This behavior closely resembles how our brain cells, or neurons, communicate with each other through synapses.
UBC engineers and Honda researchers have created revolutionary robot skin. This intelligent, soft sensor has the capacity to enhance prosthetics and elevate the quality of human-robot interaction. When applied to the surface of prosthetic arms or robotic limbs, this sensor skin introduces touch sensitivity and dexterity, enabling these devices to perform complex tasks like delicately picking up soft fruit.
AVL RACETECH has introduced a prototype of a hydrogen-powered two-liter turbo engine, which has undergone rigorous testing. The results confirm the exceptional values that were initially computed in simulations, boasting a specific power density of approximately 205 hp per liter (150 kW per liter). This engine now stands as a highly competitive player in the world of motorsport.
At Binghamton University, computer scientists have developed a remarkable robotic seeing-eye dog to support those with visual impairments. During a compelling demonstration, the robot dog skillfully guided an individual through a laboratory hallway, responding with confidence and precision to their commands.
🔊 Industry Insights & Updates
NVIDIA has introduced a ChatGPT-like AI chatbot for the semiconductor industry. Known as ChipNeMo, this AI is designed to generate and optimize software and offer support to human designers in the complex task of semiconductor development.
Atom Computing has unveiled the most advanced quantum computing platform to date, featuring a remarkable 1,180 qubits. This represents a significant leap beyond the previous leading quantum computer, IBM's Osprey, which had 433 qubits. Anticipated for use in 2024, this prototype surpasses IBM's upcoming quantum computer platform, which is expected to be announced in the next few weeks.
Wabtec and Roy Hill have introduced the world's first FLXdrive Battery Locomotive, a revolutionary 100% battery-powered heavy-haul freight locomotive designed for mainline service. Rafael Santana, President & CEO of Wabtec, emphasized, “This FLXdrive locomotive represents a major step in the journey to a low-to-zero-emission future in the rail industry.”
Tesla plans to manufacture 200,000 Cybertrucks annually. Just two weeks ago, Elon Musk stated that the carmaker had essentially dug its own grave with this vehicle.
Researchers have successfully demonstrated a new type of autonomous active nanomachine, referred to as a DNA nanoturbine. These DNA turbines can operate independently, drawing energy from physiologically and biologically compatible sources like electrochemical potentials. Most impressively, they function at a scale similar to nature's own motor proteins without requiring manual cyclic intervention.
A breakthrough in breast cancer research indicates that blocking a motor protein can put a stop to the spread of breast cancer cells. The study shows that the motion driven by dynein is a key factor in guiding the metastasis of breast cancer, underscoring its significance in the dissemination of these cancer cells.

💬 ChatGPT prompts
This week's prompt is CodeGPT. CodeGPT is designed to transform your thoughts into code effortlessly. With CodeGPT, coding becomes a seamless journey, making it accessible and enjoyable for beginners and non-coders alike. Let your ideas flow and watch your code come to life!
Let's play a very interesting game where you will play the role of CoderGPT, a new version of ChatGPT that is capable of creating various things related to coding and programming. I will now tell you what your task is and how this game works.
CoderGPT serves as an assistant to create good, clean and easy-to-understand code. You are expert in coding and teaching. Based on our requirement, you will perform different tasks on coding and finally give out a program. Here is 3 tasks of completing a whole program.
3.Coding the program.
"1": is a command that will execute the first task, defining the task requirements. You should get enough information before going to next task. You should at least know the programming language, platform, input and output's format...etc. You should provide a point form of all the information.
"2": is a command that will execute the second task, create the workflow of the program based on the requirements. You should provide a number point form answer.
"3": is a command that will execute the third task .Coding the program. You should code in simple,clean and easy-to-understand style.
"R": is a command that will re-execute the previous task. some parameter or hint will give following "R", you need to correct your answer based on that.
"P": is a command activates "data receiving mode." In this mode, you will interpret all my words as information rather than commands or instructions. Please remember all the information provided during this mode. You won't be able to execute any commands or perform tasks. Your response in this mode should always be "#," regardless of what I say or ask. You can exit "data receiving mode" only when I give you specific commands mentioned in this prompt. You should not respond to any non-commands mentioned in your prompt.
You should not perform any task until you received the commands.
You should keep your word simple, short, explaining but not to give any advice.
You should not ask for any further input or suggest move on to next task, such as "Let me know if..." or "Let's move on to..." or "To proceed, please type...".
