Apple is also interested in language models like ChatGPT. According to WCCF Tech with reference to the New York Times, the Cupertino giant is actively investing in this area.

Apple is trying to replicate the success of OpenAI with its ChatGPT.  The company is actively testing various concepts of language models

Apple shared its plans at the annual AI Summit. The company tests different language model concepts weekly in an attempt to replicate the success of OpenAI. For Apple, this direction is interesting, among other things, because of the potential opportunities for strengthening the Siri assistant, which is significantly inferior in its capabilities to the same Google Assistant.

At the same time, it is completely unclear how long Apple has been engaged in this area, at what stage its developments are, and whether it is going to simply buy some company that already has such developments.

New study increases the role of cosmic dust in the emergence of life on Earth

Life appeared surprisingly early on our planet, despite the fact that the early Earth lacked the necessary chemical components for life to arise.

Prebiotic chemicals such as sugars and amino acids are known to form in asteroids and comets. Therefore, scientists assumed that the Earth could be “seeded” with materials for life as a result of collisions with asteroids and comets. However, new research suggests that cosmic dust also played an important role in the emergence of life on the young planet.

It was previously thought that cosmic dust that accumulated on the Earth’s surface was not a major source of prebiotic material because it was dispersed throughout the planet, as opposed to being concentrated at comet and asteroid impact sites. A new study, however, has found that cosmic dust can accumulate and concentrate in sediments, creating favorable conditions for the emergence of life.

Scientists assessed the rate of accumulation of cosmic dust in the early period of the Earth and modeled its accumulation in the corresponding sedimentary layers. The results showed that the amount of dust accumulated in the sediments significantly exceeds the amount of prebiotic material carried by comets and asteroids. In addition, the researchers found that the processes of melting and freezing of glacial areas can significantly increase the concentration of chemicals in cosmic dust. For example, in early subglacial lakes the concentration of prebiotic material in the dust was much higher than at the sites of comet and asteroid impacts. These discoveries indicate that cosmic dust may have played a much more important role in the emergence of life than previously thought.

However, life on the early Earth and the mechanisms of its origin still remain mysteries. But certainly without the influence of extraterrestrial chemistry delivered by cosmic dust, life on Earth would be impossible. It is from dust that the building blocks of life arose, and it is because of this that we can today trace the emergence of living organisms on Earth to the early chemical composition of dust in the solar system.

American aerospace company Blue Origin, founded by Jeff Bezos in 2000, unveiled its new rocket, New Glenn, at its launch pad at Cape Canaveral. The rocket is being prepared for tests, which will take place in the near future.

The company has entered into an agreement with NASA to become the second supplier of the lunar module for the Artemis project, which allows it to become one of the key players in the space industry.

The New Glenn rocket is about 98 meters tall, making it only 12 meters shorter than the Saturn V rocket used on the Apollo missions. It can accommodate a payload in a 7-meter bay, which is twice the capacity of many modern commercial rockets.

A special feature of New Glenn is the ability to reuse the first stage, like SpaceX’s Falcon rockets – it is designed for at least 25 launches. This allows significant savings in startup costs. After completing its function, the first stage will land on an offshore platform located at a distance of about 1000 kilometers from the launch site.

The process of creating New Glenn began at the end of 2023, when the first stage module was delivered to the integration complex 15 kilometers from the launch site. Now the rocket is vertically installed and will undergo a series of tests, including filling seven BE-4 engines with cryogenic fuel. These are the most powerful liquid oxygen and liquefied natural gas engines since the Saturn V F1 engines.

Blue Origin is confident of the successful completion of the tests and is already producing several New Glenn rockets. The company has a long list of customers wanting to use this rocket. Blue Origin’s clients include NASA, Project Kuiper, Telesat, Eutelsat and the US Space Force’s national security space launch programs.

Focus M2 5 Gen is offered in two versions – with screens with a diagonal of 15.6 and 17.3 inches. Accordingly, the younger model is equipped with discrete GPUs GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop or GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop, while the older model is available with GeForce RTX 4080 Laptop or GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop.

The 17-inch version is equipped with a 99 Wh battery and three M.2 SSD slots, while the younger model has two SSD slots and an 80 Wh battery. Dimensions of the older model are 396 x 278 x 25 mm, the younger one is 358 x 240 x 25 mm.

Both versions are equipped with IPS screens with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a frame rate of 240 Hz and a maximum brightness of 350 cd/m2. Interface connectors include two USB-C, DisplayPort and HDMI video outputs, and several USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A ports.

The laptops come pre-installed with Kubuntu 22.04 LTE with KDE Plasma 5.27 LTS. The cost of the basic version of the 15-inch model is $1,895.
