The system of recognition of persons confused politicians with criminals
The American Civil Liberties Union decided to test the new Rekognition face recognition system created by Amazon. As a result, the system identified 28 congressmen as criminals.
It’s worth noting that this may seem like an amusing fact, but Amazon actively advertises its system for police and security organizations and some already use it, so the price of such a mistake can be quite expensive for the one who was identified incorrectly.
TECHNOLOGIES and SCIENCE
Rostech: A parachute designed to evacuate people from buildings
Unlike the parachute evacuation system “Chance”, the new model is designed in such a way that it allows the evacuation of people from a low altitude – from 30 m. This is the height of a nine-story building. So, with the help of this parachute, people can be evacuated from burning buildings
In Mexico, archaeologists discovered a cave with ancient Mayan drawings
The cave with ancient rock paintings, left by representatives of the Mayan civilization, was discovered by archaeologists on the Yucatan peninsula. According to The Latin American Herald Tribune, this is a very important discovery for the region. Yucatan was the center of Mayan culture from the fourth to the tenth century.
The future has already come – the robot-lifesaver is at your service
The Centauro robot, capable of operating from remote operator’s teams in difficult and dangerous conditions, was presented by developers from the Italian Technological Institute and the University of Bonn, transmits the edition of the IEEE Spectrum. The earlier Momaro robot is based on the design.
Biologists have discovered consciousness-supporting neurons
Researchers from the Rockefeller University (USA) discovered neurons supporting consciousness. They told about this in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In the human brain, there are cells that are responsible for the activity of the nervous system.
Weak night lighting intensified the hunt of wasp-riders on aphids
A group of researchers from Exeter University, led by Dirk Sanders, studied the influence of different levels of night illumination, from 0.1 lux (slightly weaker than the full moon in a clear sky) to 100 lux (very cloudy day) on the behavior of aphids and parasites on them, riders.
Microorganisms of the soil have successfully processed “alternative” plastic
New experiments have shown that PBAT is effectively destroyed in soil by microorganisms. Soil microorganisms decompose PBAT, processing carbon in its composition and releasing carbon dioxide.
Chilean scientists created a water-soluble plastic
Two chemical engineers from Chile have created a technology for the production of environmentally friendly plastic bags that dissolve in cold water. Scientists have replaced petroleum products, traditionally used in the manufacture of plastics, for ordinary limestone
Scientists have found a new mineral in the meteorite
A unique mineral was discovered by a group of scientists from UrFU together with Novosibirsk colleagues and scientists from Ulan-Ude. The wreckage of the meteorite was found in 2016 in Buryatia during the search for gold. The scientists presented their discovery to the Assembly of the International Meteorological Society, recently held in Moscow.
Scientists have discovered a new relationship between smell and memory
The special relationship that exists between smells and memories has become the subject of research by neurobiologists from Canada. Scientists have managed to describe the microbiological mechanism, which is responsible for vivid memories associated with smells
Created the world’s first aerosol with nanobots
Represented by experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, nanobots are able to successfully perform operations of virtually any orientation.
In particular, they can both with high accuracy diagnose various diseases that affect the body, and effectively identify, for example, potentially dangerous leaks in the pipes.
Scientists are convinced that the nanorobots sprayed have a really great future. It is not ruled out that they will soon begin to be actively used in various fields of activity.
Physicists discovered new quasiparticles in semiconductors and called them collectons
German physicists have discovered with the help of photoluminescence spectroscopy a new type of quasiparticles that arise in semiconductors with an increased degree of degeneracy of the electron gas.
Black hole confirmed the theory of Einstein
A star is discovered that changes its orbit after approaching a black hole. According to astronomers, this behavior of the planet confirms Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
Mercury will launch a research mission BepiColombo
Representatives of ESA said that on October 19, three spacecraft will be sent to Mercury in the framework of the BepiColombo research mission, organized jointly with Japan. In the message of the European agency it is noted that the devices will be launched into space with the help of the Ariane 5 launch vehicle.
The asteroid Ryuga was covered with large boulders
The Hayabusa-2 spacecraft received a new snapshot of the asteroid Ryuga from a distance of six kilometers. It turned out that the entire surface is covered with large boulders, which had not previously been observed on similar sites visited by other vehicles, according to the mission website.
The Hubble telescope took high resolution images of Mars and Saturn
The Hubble telescope made a series of high-resolution images of Mars and Saturn. This became possible due to the correct construction of planets in their orbits. At a time when the Earth and any other planet line up in one line, telescopes can make the most accurate photo of the celestial body.
Scientists: The seasons on Mars abruptly replace each other
Scientists have established that the seasons on Mars very sharply replace each other. Between these transitions there are no intermediate phenomena and relatively warm temperatures are quickly replaced by a significant frost. Mars almost completely repeats the Earth, except for minor differences.
Parachute system for a new spaceship
“Rostegh” first showed the parachute system being created for the prospective space ship “Federation”. The demonstration took place on July 23 at Kirzhach airfield, the correspondent of RBC reports.
SpaceShipTwo ship broke its own record
In the United States, the third test of the suborbital spacecraft SpaceShipTwo of the Unity model was successfully completed. The development and testing of the aircraft is overseen by the US company Virgin Galactic
