I've bought and built several miners, but none have been this easy. Plug it in, set it up, and let it run.
The coronavirus is helping to erode the hype around artificial intelligence; data scientists get the axe and some ‘old-fashioned’ solutions work better.
In the past few years, people across the world have spent more time on video chat programs like Zoom and FaceTime than ever before. These applications mimic in-person encounters by allowing users to see the people they are communicating with.
Long Covid, with its constellation of symptoms, is proving a challenging moving target for researchers trying to conduct large studies of the syndrome.
"I think a lot of people dismiss this kind of talk of superintelligence as science fiction because we’re stuck in this sort of carbon chauvinism idea that intelligence can only exist in biological organisms made of cells and carbon atoms." - Max Tegmark, Physicist
Data dashboards have been an important part of pandemic response and planning. What have their developers learnt about communicating science in a crisis?
After a nearly a year wait, I received my Morpher folding bicycle helmet last week (not bad by Indiegogo standards). It’s pretty cool and functions just like any other bicycle helmet with the exception that it folds in half to make it easier to transport. It fits into

Humans have a powerful capacity to process visual information, skills that date far back in our evolutionary lineage. And since the advent of science, we have employed intricate visual strategies to communicate data, often utilizing design principles that draw on these basic cognitive skills. In a modern world where we
