Georgia Aquarium announces to discontinue acquiring beluga whales from wild

Georgia Aquarium on Thursday announced that it will no longer seek dolphins and beluga whales from the wild. The decision came after two beluga whales died at the facility in the past. Animal rights activists are supporting the decision taken by the aquarium in favor of conservation efforts.

Warning: Hot Summers in New York will be More Deadly By 2080

Warning: Hot Summers in New York will be More Deadly By 2080

For New York City residents, summer time means festivals and free concerts, but a new study suggested that heat exposure is killing a number of people in the city. Over 3,000 residents of NYC may lose their life every year by 2080 due to deadly heat waves, it added.

Research explores how people expect their self-driving cars to act when faced with extreme situations

Research explores how people expect their self-driving cars to act when faced with extreme situations

Research work is as how to develop and refine the algorithms of autonomous vehicles, which are considered to be the future of the roads. Now, a very logical question has come up that what would happen in extreme situations, where a crash and injury or death is unavoidable.

This question has been picked up in a research paper titled, ‘The Social Dilemma of Autonomous Vehicles’ published in the journal Science. The research paper makes an attempt to understand as to how people want their self-driving cars to act when faced in an extreme situation that could lead to death.

Dormant supermassive black hole consumes star

Dormant supermassive black hole consumes star

A dormant supermassive black hole was woken up by a star that came closer to it. The black hole started shredding the star off releasing light detected by scientists recently. The dormant black holes do not devour matter actively and as a result, no light or radiation is emitted to give evidence of their existence. They only come visible during tidal disruption event on releasing light.

Computer image shows huge sections of California rising and sinking around San Andreas fault

A First: Computer image shows huge sections of California rising and sinking around San Andreas fault

Scientists have for the first time come up with a computer picture demonstrating large parts of California rising and sinking in the area surrounding the San Andreas fault. Seismic strain has caused this vertical movement that will be released in a huge earthquake ultimately.

The San Andreas fault is the longest earthquake fault in California, and is among the state’s most dangerous ones. Since long, scientists thought that some parts of California are rising, while other parts sink in the areas around the fault in a quite subtle and extremely slow ongoing way.

Scientists from top companies working together to find solutions to five AI safety issues

Scientists from top companies working together to find solutions to five AI safety issues

Scientists from Google’s deep-learning research unit, Google Brain, the Elon Musk-backed OpenAI, and Stanford and Berkeley universities have joined hands in order to find solutions to five safety problems that could take place when AI robot are put to work in home, office and industry.

Google said that it wants to have concrete answers to questions with regard to safety and artificial intelligence (AI). Many a times, AI robots have been blamed for stealing jobs and even to have capable of destroying humanity.

Model helps researchers calculate types of stars that formed black holes

Model helps researchers calculate types of stars that formed black holes

Scientists at LIGO observatory created history in February when they declared the first ever detection of gravitational waves. The ripples in the fabric of space-time belonged to two black holes that rotated around one another many times per second prior to merging in a violent, energetic explosion. Researchers have now measured the probable origins of the black holes.

A latest study argued that they possibly belonged to two huge suns that formed nearly 12 billion years back, or two billion years post the Big Bang.
