Other than the main tracking feature of GPS, the system can also be used to detect and monitor in a range of additional and unique situations. The amount of snow on the ground can be measured from GPS signal noise, it can used to detect earthquakes, monitor volcanoes, and to analyse the atmosphere.
Researchers from the University of Washington and Stanford University demonstrated a new radio transmitter that uses almost no power to switch the flow of electrons heated by random thermal noise on or off to an antenna.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a WiFi based human pose sensing system that can identify multiple people and their positions in a room using the phase and amplitude of the WiFi signal, filtered using machine learning models. The system can map the UV coordinates of body regions and is comparable to image based recognition systems.
The recently released chatGPT general AI text model has been sending shockwaves around the internet. Jonas Degrave from Deep Mind wrote about how he used chatGPT to create a virtual machine, access the chatGPT website from the command line within the VM, and query chatGPT running in the VM, running in chatGPT.
Researchers at the University of Tokyo conducted experiments that show rats nodding their heads in sync with musical beats, marking the first innate time beat synchronisation has been observed in animals.
