Low-energy blue light-activated biomaterial can repair damaged corneas | Interesting Engineering

“Despite corneal diseases leading to severe symptoms such as vision loss or blindness affecting 57 million people and costing $410 billion globally in productivity losses and reduced quality of life, only a small fraction of people are eligible for corneal transplantation.


Now researchers at the University of Ottawa in Canada have developed a material that can be used to reshape and thicken damaged corneal tissue, promoting its healing and recovery.”

OpenAI can’t tell if something was written by AI after all | The Verge

“OpenAI fully admitted the classifier was never very good at catching AI-generated text and warned that it could spit out false positives, aka human-written text tagged as AI-generated. OpenAI, before it added its update shutting down the tool, said the classifier could get better with more data.”

Antarctica's sea ice level breaks lowest ever record | Newsweek

“Antarctica's sea ice level appears to have broken its lowest-ever record, likely due to climate change, researchers have found.


Data from the Climate Reanalyzer by the University of Maine's Climate Change Institute on July 19 shows that there is almost 2 million kilometers² (about 772,000 miles²) less sea ice in Antarctica compared to the same point last year. Last year, there were 15.030 million kilometers (about 9.4 million miles) of sea ice cover on the continent.”

You’d think we’d already know but we refuse to see Oppenheimer until we can see it in 70mm IMAX.
