Can NASA's Artemis moon missions count on using lunar water ice? |

"...a number of new studies have identified areas of particular interest within the Artemis 3 candidate landing sites that might be hiding water ice that could be used by future human crews on the moon's surface. But how realistic is it to expect to find enough ice on the moon to support human habitats? And what issues come with mining and using resources on the moon?"

A secretive annual meeting attended by the world's elite has A.I. top of the agenda | CNBC

"OpenAI CEO Sam Altman will join forces with key leadership from companies like Microsoft and Google this week as a secretive meeting of the business and political elite kick-starts in Lisbon, Portugal. Artificial intelligence will top the agenda as the ChatGPT chief meets with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, DeepMind head Demis Hassabis and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt at the annual Bilderberg Meeting."

Scientists use gold nanoparticles to get the stink out of wine | New Atlas

"Wines get their aroma from the presence of what are known as volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs). Some of these produce a desired scent, but others smell more like rotten eggs, rubber and other things you wouldn't want to drink. And while copper sulfate is often added to wines to neutralize these problematic VSCs, it may negatively affect the wines' flavor. Seeking a more effective alternative, scientists at Australia's Flinders University devised a process which begins with a thin plasma polymer coating being applied to the surface of a neutral substrate. Gold nanoparticles are then immobilized on that coating – gold is used because it's known to bind with certain sulfur molecules."

Scientists train new AI exclusively on the dark web | The Byte

"OpenAI's large language models (LLMs) are trained on a vast array of datasets, pulling information from the internet's dustiest and cobweb-covered corners. But what if such a model were to crawl through the dark web — the internet's seedy underbelly where you can host a site without your identity being public or even available to law enforcement — instead? A team of South Korean researchers did just that, creating an AI model dubbed DarkBERT to index some of the sketchiest domains on the internet."
