With all the rage about ChatGPT, have you ever wondered about the differences between AI and more classical technologies? Join me for a brief tour, with its relation to Aerospace. @RedDivulga, @filarramendi, @uc3m y @doctoradoUC3M.  @PhDAaeroUC3M #PhD #Aerospace #Engineering
ChatGPT, and its equivalents work like buttonsmashing. You have a bajillion buttons, and them you mash, tweak, and tune them randomly. Like this young Alien Stu is doing in the Pixar short movie Lifted.
Stu is trying to learn how to abduct humans. I know, a very Aerospace oriented scenario. Consider him as Chatgpt in its beginnings. He pushes random buttons, and not surprisingly, nothing really works. However, the more he tries, the more he learns the buttons

If you think ChatGPT is revolutionary, brace yourself for AutoGPT.

This groundbreaking AI technology is taking artificial intelligence to new heights with real-life examples and scenarios.

Follow along for mind-blowing insights! #AutoGPT #AIRevolution
1. AutoGPT, aka BabyAGI, is a powerful AI language model built on the GPT-4 architecture.

It's designed to perform a wide range of tasks with human-like understanding, enabling it to adapt and generalize across various domains. #NextGenAI #ArtificialGeneralIntelligence
2. One-Shot Learning: AutoGPT can quickly learn new concepts and tasks with minimal input.

For example, it can understand a user's request to create a personalized workout plan after analyzing just a few key parameters like fitness level, goals, and available equipment.

@0LNetwork's strategy is to stay as close as possible to the #Libra/#Diem code base, rather than fragmenting #technology products. This approach is more efficient on resources and best for the wider open-source #ecosystem these #tools extend and depend upon
#0LNetwork #Move Image
The #forking strategy is simple in concept: take the unmodified #Diem code, import it into the 0L, and add layers of features. But it's not that simple in execution
They has to insert many changes in main places of the diem-core code for the #0L layers and side-cars to work
What they inherited from #Libra/#Diem is a spaceship on all accounts. There are #engineering breakthroughs #throughout the project, and the #architecture is sensibly designed and expertly assembled

Earlier today, @STS_News asked about researchers studying the history of #standardization.

That reminded me that I haven't had a chance to share some of the highlights from @LindaHall_org's latest exhibition: The #Standards That Built America!

Time for a 🧵! (1/8) #histSTM #STS
Curated by reference assistant David Crawford, this exhibition showcases a few of the 100,000+ industrial #standards in LHL's stacks.

Many of these standards were once part of the Engineering Societies Library & are hard to find anywhere else! (2/8)…
LHL's #standards are often overlooked compared to our #RareBooks & #Journals, but they tell an important #engineering story. Groups like @ansidotorg, @IEEESA & @isostandards have helped promote interoperability, safety & accessibility in a variety of technological contexts. (3/8)

Here’s a critical care puzzle & illustrates some important cardiopulmonary physiology:

These two pictures were taken just an hour apart. What intervention was done in between that changed the respiratory pattern? (Red box)

Multiple choice & answers in the 🧵.

1/ ImageImage
The intervention was:

This is Cheyne-Stokes Respirations (CSR) in a person with heart failure.

The intervention was dobutamine (an inotrope).

Cheyne-Stokes is a characteristically regular crescendo-descresendo respiratory pattern with interspersed periods of apnea.

(0/n) Tomorrow, #Belgian #cycling season starts again with opening classic @OmloopHNB @Nieuwsblad_be Upon several requests, we provide thread on our research in cycling #aerodynamics including practical ramifications. Work by @KU_Leuven et al. in partnership with @Ansys
(1/n) Well-known: cyclist in slipstream of another cyclist can typically get aerodynamic drag reduction of 30-40%. Is much more behind motorcycle, car or train. Known since at least 1899. “#Drafting” in the #slipstream is therefore common practice.
#Science #Engineering #cycling
(2/n) This is because air as medium gives pressure field so 1st rider literally gets “push” by 2nd. We published this in 2013. First lot of criticism & disbelief, now many say “we know this all along”. Yeah right 😊. That’s how it always goes……

Ready for some surf and turf?

Did you know that there are waves which have a square shape?

Here is a thread 🧵 dedicated to some of the unique & fascinating waves found on earth 🌊🏖️

Square waves are periodic waves that have a sharp, abrupt transition between the high and low points of the waveform. They are characterized by their flat, straight tops and are often used in electronic and electrical engineering. #squarewaves #Engineering ImageImage
Point / Reef/ Beach break waves: waves that break at a specific point along the coast. They are formed when the wave direction is perpendicular (point break) or parallel (reef & beach break) to the coastline & can create long, peeling rides for surfers Image

First, kudos to the Chinese authors doing this work & a shoutout to @edwardcholmes also involved

I already flagged this Wang et al. preprint yesterday but it is worth explaining its significance to both the #origins discussion and the related pandemic #prevention discussion

First: Origins

One thing that goes often down in all the noise surrounding #lableak is the fact that SARS-CoV-2, and actually all CoVs, possess #mosaic genomes.

This is because CoVs evolve not only through mutation but also through exchanging genetic elements with other CoVs
This exchange is called '#recombination'.

One can imagine CoV genomes like colorful Lego brick walls, and recombination as taking one brick from a different virus and putting it in the wall of another; changing the color while keeping roughly the function.

"The 21st Century Question: Emergently Engineering the Future"

Follow this 🧵 today and tomorrow for highlights from our 2022 #AppliedComplexity Network and Board of Trustees Symposium:…

#Web3 #Cities #Polarization #EmergentEngineering #Decentralization
We start with a talk by SFI President David Krakauer:

"Would anyone care to guess why we're so GOOD at building transistors and so CRAP at designing drugs?"

"This thing [points to transistor] lives in a centralized system. This thing [points to cancer drug] lives in US."
"I'm going to pick on economics, because we like to do that at SFI. 'Ooh, look at that cover! So techy. Global, heat maps...' But here's 'Networks' [in the textbook]. THAT'S IT. Here's '#ComplexityEconomics.' NOTHING."

1. Crimea Bridge explosion occurred 1 week ago.
It will disrupt dramatically Russian invasion logistics through their main and safest route. Follow a longer 🧶 to evaluate the damage at Crimea Bridge, from a failure analysis engineering perspective.
2. How long repairs will take? That's the key question.
In order to try to answer is necessary understand, considering the bridge design and construction aspects, damage details, evaluate possible structural damages, in order to access how complex such repair will be.
(The event) The explosion occurred at automotive bridge towards Crimea, by a detonation between piers 237 and 238. The bridge girder collapsed. Other girders fall from its piers, some damage to bridge towards Russia occurred and a fire in a close train fuel cars was ignited.
