  • Also, researchers asking ChatGPT for long lists of random numbers were able to extract its training data from the output (which OpenAI promptly blocked).

    Or maybe that’s what you meant?

  • Daylight saving creator left the chat....
  • On the other hand, TAI does not take into account the variations in Earth's rotation speed, which determines the true length of a day. For this reason, UTC is constantly compared to UT1. Before the difference between the two scales reaches 0.9 seconds, a leap second is added to UTC.

    On average, Earth has been slowing down a bit over the past decades, so UTC is currently running 37 seconds behind TAI.

  • Greenland Size [xkcd]
  • The Earth is a sphere, which means there’s no easy way to project it onto a flat surface. One of the methods used to project the Earth’s surface on the map results in certain places (such as Greenland) to be stretched to huge sizes, sometimes appearing as big as Africa (look up “Mercator map”). The joke here is that while we expect him to make a comment about the map’s projection, he instead comments on how Greenland on the physical map is only a few inches, as opposed to its actual size.

    So yeah, subverted expectations, peak Dad joke

  • Video Shows First Neuralink Patient Playing Mario Kart With His Mind
  • It’s still very impressive. The EEG she uses only reads general thoughts: e.g. thinking about pushing a boulder. She can only really do specific actions with that: there’s no level of analog control (how much should this move), it’s just a single action (fire a fireball). The brain chip is likely much higher fidelity and therefore can read much finer signals. All the credit goes to the researchers, of course, who’ve spent the last decade researching and fine tuning this technology.

  • Android's Dream of Satellite Connectivity is Done Before It Even Began

    Qualcomm parted ways with its satellite network provider. Now, it’s up to each phone maker to pursue the personal safety feature.

    Anyone have suggestions for a good Rust template engine?

    I'm running a server-side-rendered web server using Actix Web. Any suggestions for a client? All I really need is something fast and that I can use without breaking my neck (don't need any fancy VDOM, trying to ship minimal JS).

    10 Why Lemmy/Kbin are fundamentally broken (and how to fix them)

    This post assumes you have a basic understanding of what Lemmy and Kbin are. Which, in turn, assumes you understand at least the concept of federation. The Issue Currently, the way Lemmy/Kbin (which I will refer to simply as “Lemmy” for the rest of this article) work like this: Cool, so our user can...
