Artificial Intelligence is alive and evolving in practically everything new these days. Well, I think it is anyways. It depends on what we mean by artificial intelligence. Definitions vary. How ever we define what AI is; There are some common characteristics that emerge. Deep Learning is the AI that's stealing the spotlight these days. It's a complex, multi-layered neural network that has the potential of birthing the most powerful form of AI. Subscribe to the podcast not to miss Part 2...

Planet of the Apes

More
What is the most abundant life in the Universe? That’s a bold question, considering we have yet to see undisputed proof that ET even exists. The only model we have, is on Earth. So let’s unpack that, and see what we end up with. Earth, 4.6 billion years old. That’s our scale. The scale has already been split into four eons. The first eon is called Hadean. That first eon, lasted from 4.57 billion to 4.1 billion years ago. At 4.53 billion years, a mars sized object hit the earth,...

Planet Nursery on Visual

More
Our sensors are picking up, no wait, we have a visual. Computer, put it on screen. Whoa, that’s new. The image is showing two, not one but two planets in orbit around it’s parent star. It’s not exactly a hi rez image, but it’s enough to be only the second time a multi-planetary system has been captured using direct imaging. The host star is called PDS 70, located 370 light years away. Its just a baby, only 6 million years old, a bit smaller than our sun, and is still building up steam...

The Next Great Event

5/22/2019
More
The Great 415ppm CO2 Event All planets, as far as we know, have atmospheres. We can see alien atmospheres by looking at the light from their own sun passing through them. When looking for new life, a target atmosphere must be able to protect life on the surface. Although the sun gives life, without the right kind of atmosphere, the Sun's rays can break apart the chemical bonds of life’s essential organic molecules. An atmosphere also has to be thick enough not to let water...

New Designer Life Forms

5/20/2019
More
It’s in our DNA. That’s a big statement. For life to build itself up, it needs structure which comes from the elements, carbon, oxygen, calcium, everything that we find in stars. But to take all that building material, and turn it into a living, breathing life form, well you’re gonna need instructions. A, T, C, & G. Every living thing we know of has a set of four letter instructions encoded into it’s DNA, that defines their properties, everything from what species they are, to what...

Exoplanets on the Grid

5/17/2019
More
In the early 2000s, data about extra solar planets was trickling in at dial-up modem speed. As of right now May, 2019, we have data on l over 4’000 planets. Exoplanet are detected using a handful of methods. One way, called the transit method, is the best way to find and learn about most of them. When a planet crosses the path (transits) between us and a star, the amount of light reaching us dips down giving us numbers to calculate our how big that planet is. Some of that light...

Signatures of Alien Life

5/15/2019
More
In our continuing quest to discover alien life one question keeps popping up. How will we recognize alien life when we find it? Life is a word with multiple meanings. We don’t yet have a perfect definition for what life is, but it hasn’t stopped us from trying. What we have done is define some of life’s main attributes. 1. Life is chemistry based, an ordered network of chemical reactions. 2. Life is also not in equilibrium, it needs a source of energy to organize itself. 3. Life can...

Super Earth

Earth, the only planet in the Universe, known to harbour life. And life on Earth has flourished, some say maybe too successfully. If everyone ate like an average American, we would need four Earths. Whew! I’m sure glad we don’t all eat like average Americans. A Super-Earth is a planet bigger than earth, not as big a Uranus and Neptune. These ice giants are 15 and 17 times more massive. Forget about gas giants like Saturn and Jupiter, they’re even bigger. No, a super-Earth is somewhere...

AI is being used to analyse previously archived astronomical data, and has discovered something previously undetected, signals from a long time ago, coming from a galaxy far, far away. In this episode, we explore why aliens are suspected and how they might not have anything to do with it at all. Buckle up! Coming out of hyperspace now...

Sky Disruption (How to become a Trillionaire) Yes, you read it right. The sky itself is heading toward disruption. We are injecting the sky, not just the cloud, but the entire sky, with AI. We are digitizing outer space. Why is this happening? There’s gold in them thar hills. Earth's first Trillionaire will be made by disrupting the sky. Gold Fever. It’s an obsessive drive with seeking gold, and the riches it will bring. This isn’t just limited to gold, but other precious...

Weaponizing Hyper-Intelligence?

8/7/2018
More
Really? Are we actually considering arming hyper-intelligent systems? The question should be, how do we stop the development of strong artificial intelligence from becoming weaponized? Not all AI's are alike. Todays AI's like SIRI, Alexa, Google, and Cortana are essentially wave 2 AI's, our digital assistants. Wave 3 AI's are expected to be a much higher level of intelligence than our own. Let's weaponize them, NOT!

Why 5G?

Why we need 5G First of all, what is 5G. 5G is the next generation of mobile network that is faster and more reliable. How fast? We don’t know exactly yet, but expect to be over a 1GBps. Most people are saying 10Gb/s. Some people say that it may be able to handle 800Gb/s. Compared to today’s 4G LTE at 50Mbps its several orders of magnitude faster. This isn’t something far into the future either. Development is happening now, and is expected to launch wider in 2020, 2 years from now. The...

New Way to Discover Alien Worlds

The $600 million Kepler space observatory was launched March 7, 2009 to find Earth sized planets orbiting stars, known as exoplanets. It has been surveying a part of our Milky Way galaxy for planets in or near the habitable zone, where water could exist in liquid form, and be able to support life. Now, a new way to find previously hidden alien worlds using it's data has been found.

Yes, it's been confirmed, China has partnered with Europe to build a village on the Moon. The European Space Agency (ESA) and and the China National Space Administration (CNSA) are talking about collaborating on a very ambitious project. And, unlike the International Space Station, the ISS, they plan to open up the Moon Village to the whole world. China was barred from going to the ISS from US concerns over China's possible military application of its space program thanks to an act of...
