The metaverse could drive the next big tech opportunity

It feels like you can’t move right now without hearing someone saying something about the metaverse.

We have barely scratched the surface of 2022, and yet this one term threatens to swallow the year whole. The conversation, if you can call it that, seems to stretch only as far as a bunch of conflicting ideas and competing opinions shouting over each other about what it is, what it could be, what it will be, and what it isn’t. Speculation and noise driving hype, hype driving more speculation, and more noise. All of which makes getting to grips with what is being said about the metaverse tricky.

Sustainability goals in manufacturing need a boost with AI
By Helen Sydney Adams | Manufacturing Global

Jane Ren, CEO, and founder of computer software company Atomiton explains how artificial intelligence can help achieve sustainability goals, by providing visibility into the carbon effect of production activities

The drive is on across the world to reduce our carbon emissions and move toward a net zero future to mitigate against the effects of climate change. In the relentless pursuit of establishing their green credentials, companies are setting ambitious decarbonisation commitments in the boardroom without the ability to translate these goals into action on the shopfloor.

🌙 NASA - Best Photo from Last Week
Hubble Views a Cosmic Interaction

This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope feels incredibly three-dimensional for a piece of deep-space imagery. The image shows Arp 282, an interacting galaxy pair composed of the Seyfert galaxy NGC 169 (bottom) and the galaxy IC 1559 (top). Interestingly, both galaxies have monumentally energetic cores known as active galactic nuclei (AGN), although that is difficult to tell from this image, which is fortunate. If the image revealed the full emission of both AGNs, their brilliance would obscure the beautifully detailed tidal interactions we see in this image. Tidal forces occur when an object’s gravity causes another object to distort or stretch. The direction of tidal forces is away from the lower-mass object and toward the higher mass object. When two galaxies tidally interact, gas, dust, and even entire star systems can move toward one galaxy and away from the other. The image reveals this process in action as delicate streams of matter visibly link the two galaxies.

Astronomers now accept that an important aspect of how galaxies evolve is the way they interact with one another. Galaxies can merge, collide, or brush past one another – each interaction significantly affecting their shapes and structures. As common as such interactions may be, it is rare to capture an image of two galaxies interacting in such a visibly dynamic way.
