‘Mission is just beginning’: James Webb telescope discovers its first exoplanet

The US Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has shared the latest news on the James Webb Space Telescope. Researchers have been able to confirm the presence of an exoplanet for the first time using data obtained by James Webb.

The planet LHS 475 b is almost the same size as the Earth, — 99% of the Earth’s diameter. Director of Astrophysics at NASA Headquarters in Washington, Mark Clampin said:

These first observations of an Earth-sized rocky planet open the door to many future possibilities for studying the atmospheres of rocky planets with Webb.

He also noted:

Webb is bringing us closer to a new understanding of terrestrial worlds beyond our solar system, and the mission is just getting started.

Among all the existing telescopes, only James Webb is able to study the characteristics of the atmosphere of exoplanets the size of the Earth, according to NASA. Erin May from the Applied Physics Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University explained:

These observatories are wonderful. The telescope is so sensitive that it can easily detect a range of molecules, but we cannot yet draw any definitive conclusions about the planet’s atmosphere.

The telescope also revealed that the planet is several hundred degrees warmer than Earth. If clouds are found, then researchers may conclude that the planet is more like Venus, which has a carbon dioxide atmosphere and is constantly shrouded in thick clouds. Another discovery – the planet makes a complete revolution in just two days. Although LHS 475 b is closer to its star than any planet in the solar system, the red dwarf’s temperature is less than half that of the Sun, so the researchers speculate it may still have an atmosphere.

Twitch launched an endless series in the style of sitcoms

On the Twitch platform, they launched the series Nothing, Forever in the style of sitcoms of the 80s. It is notable for the fact that it is completely created using neural networks. Replicas for the series are “invented” by ChatGPT, and DALL-E, Stable Diffusion and Azure Cognitive Services generate a picture, which is then played using the Unity game engine. For voice acting, a speech synthesizer is used.

The series is constantly being created and developed based on the feedback of the viewers. At the same time, even very good jokes sometimes come across, although often the characters speak out of place or even simply remain silent. There are also animation bugs.

Overall, the visuals are similar to the first 3D PC and console games, and the scenes are fairly repetitive.

The series is based on the 1980s sitcom Seinfeld. The series can be watched here. In the future, the authors intend to create other similar projects to compete with Netflix series. They will also be endless, or at least very long.

How so Microsoft A third party developer has already added

Creative Data Studios has developed a plug-in for Microsoft Word called Ghostwriter ChatGPT that adds chatbot functionality to a text editor. The novelty was created without the participation of Microsoft.

How so, Microsoft?  A third party developer has already added ChatGPT to Word

There are currently two versions of the plugin available: $10 and $25. The first is limited to short responses of two paragraphs and uses only the ChatGPT language model. A more advanced one is devoid of such restrictions, it uses all OpenAI models. You can install the plugin through the Office Add-in Store.

In addition, the developers promise an early release of similar plug-ins for all applications from the Microsoft package: Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote. After the release of the add-on pack, users who have already purchased the plugin for Word will receive a discount.

According to Patrick Husting, who developed Ghostwriter, Microsoft will most likely disable Ghostwriter in the future when its own implementation of ChatGPT support is ready. However, this option can still be used.

Earlier it was reported that Microsoft has already added support for the GPT-3.5 model to Teams Premium, which will allow the neural network to listen to conversations, draw notes and plans based on the results. Microsoft also plans to add ChatGPT to the Bing search engine, but there, according to rumors, there will already be GPT-4.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs iPhone 14 Pro Max in

Despite the fact that there are still two weeks before the start of sales of Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones, full reviews of the camera of the older novelty have already been published on the Web. The author of the famous SuperSaf channel compared the Galaxy S23 Ultra camera with the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera.

Unfortunately, although the comparison is voluminous, it is far from being as informative as it happens on some other channels. However, there is still a lot of information.

As you can see, in low light, the brainchild of Samsung shows a wider dynamic range and detail. This is true for all cameras, including the ultra wide and tele cameras. But when shooting video at night, everything is not so clear. At least the Korean smartphone has a lot more noise and slower autofocus.

Of course, Samsung easily wins in the comparison of cameras, because it has two of them at once. Already at 10x zoom, the difference is very noticeable, and the iPhone cannot offer more than 15x at all.

Cinematic Mode on the iPhone clearly looks better, in addition, we can note a fairly significant difference in color reproduction, both in the photo and in the video.
