Comment on This AI learned to animate humanoids — solving SCI and nerve bypass globally

This AI Learned To Animate Humanoids! at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTqVhcrilrE I am trying to help someone who broke their neck in July at C4 (completely paralyzed but breathing on his own). My own brother died many yeas ago after living 18 months with a C2 break (completely paralyzed on a respirator). There are many technologies for picking

Comments on Protein Data Base, The Internet is for everyone, not just who you are familiar with

I was just browsing Protein Data Base PDB and wanted to look at the electron density at https://www.rcsb.org/structure/1bkv It timed out, so I looked at Chrome Devtools consoles to see loadSearch: counter.n=37 react-search.js?ts=5455752:138 loadSearch: counter.n=38 react-search.js?ts=5455752:138 loadSearch: counter.n=39 react-search.js?ts=5455752:153 ERROR: UNABLE TO LOAD SEARCH COMPONENT AFTER 40 ATTEMPTS May be unrelated to display (lack of)

Self reproducing robot societies that live in the desert and convert sunlight to cities

I have had deserts on my mind a lot over the last few decades.  All during the 1980’s I worked on populations forecasts and issues in Africa, then the Famine Early Warning Systems (FEWS.net), then global climate change.  I sort of keep up with any efforts to turn those vast areas into something more suitable

Comment on Video Demonstrating Convection, and approaches to understanding and visualizing

How to demonstrate convection at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8PoCwx2de0 The simple materials are good, but you, yourself, did not explain what you were expecting, where the students and demonstrators were supposed to focus their attention. You said (don’t use purple shirt) and for this short video, why did you not go change your shirt and record it again? Or,

Comment on old style MIT lab presentations. They are SO slow

Optics: Fringe contrast – path difference | MIT Video Demonstrations in Lasers and Optics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZGnYe7BUms This is like those old serials – always ends with a cliff hanger. How irritating. Some good stuff, glad to see it. But wish he would not be so Socratic, and more measurement and data oriented. But this is a

Comment on Making Petrified Lightning – application to solar system colonization, global needs and new industries

TheBackyardScientist,  Making Petrified Lightning …with electricity? at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7YznIKe7bU 3D printing metal. You can use metal or glass powders, control the current, and randomly choose next points – probably run on Arduino. You have all the skills and stuff mostly. Maybe someone already suggested. You might invent a way for YouTube viewers to work together, combine

Comment on Jordan Sullivan, Neutrinos and Antimatter Video

Neutrinos and antimatter at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcpNhPBxwfo Jordan, You can combine a particle and its anti-particle into a stable form, if you provide angular momentum. The external charge and magnetic dipole moments are effectively zero, and the particle is effectively all binding energy which has no mass. The pair can store most any amount of energy, but

Groups sharing models and data on the Internet, not paper – the case of “neutrino” OR “neutrinos”

Maury, Please post your Long Baseline Neutrino Newsletters on the Internet, and only send links and short announcements by email.  Make a member site and let people control their email notices. I think I wrote about this before, but is this newsletter available online somewhere.  My email only has a fixed part of the screen

Comment on video about the solar interior – another way, with the whole human species working together

What Does The Inside Of The Sun Look Like? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ayHXTnN4fk In the visualization from 3:00 to 4:00, I think there should be small particles coming from every point to every point in the detector. For instance something coming from the far upper right. to the far lower left. Not just radially outward from one point

Contact Imaging Sensors, Linear CCD arrays for gravitational and magnetic imaging

Jean, I was trying at least two pathways: 1. Build circuits to read the analog signals from these linear sensors, and put the fastest and best ADCs to read and store the data. The focus on high precision measurement of the signals as a function of reference voltage. 2. Somehow learn to talk to these
