In this weekly edition of New World Same Humans, David Mattin explains how the latest development from Google’s DeepMind AI division could spark a future in which AI can create new and viable scientific theories. 

“It’s been a wild year for AI,” writes David. “Things are about to get even wilder…”

This week, Google’s DeepMind AI division announced Gemini, a multi-modal LLM that can speak in real-time, understand text and image inputs, and combine them in novel ways.

In this weekly edition of the New World Same Humans newsletter by David Mattin, he explains why Gemini could be a game-changer for AI models.

The Exponentialist is a new, premium research service detailing the profound changes that exponential technologies are about to inflict on the world.

From household robots to AI-managed energy grids, “intelligence abundance” is on the way.

Here’s an excerpt of the inaugural essay from the Exponentialist.

Launched in 2020 by Ava Labs, Avalanche is a high-performance Layer 1 blockchain network that aims to solve the blockchain trilemma of security, decentralization, and scalability with the help of its specifically developed consensus mechanism named Snowball. Like its direct competitors Ethereum, Solana, and Polkadot, the Avalanche network supports smart contracts and decentralized applications (Dapps) to run on its blockchains.

A smart contract is a computer programming code that is executed and runs on a blockchain. While usually called self-executing code agreements, smart contracts need input to automatically create an output. Usually, the output is triggered according to a set of terms that have to be met.

Function X, commonly referred to as f(x), is a multi-layered decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem that was developed in 2019 by Pundi X Labs. It describes itself as a universal decentralized internet that is powered by blockchain technology and smart devices. Function X wants to mirror traditional finance products on the Function X network. It allows developers to easily create customized blockchains using their subnet solution, thereby automatically inheriting Function X’s speed and security.
