Commented on Are you a night owl or early bird?
A study published in the journal Chronobiology International analyzed data from nearly 23,000 twins in Finland over 37 years. The results showed that night owls had a nine percent higher risk of death than early birds, mainly due to their higher consumption of tobacco and alcohol. The researchers suggested that night owls may benefit from adjusting their sleep schedules and adopting healthier lifestyles. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/late-sleep-night-owl-early-death-b2369639.html

Commented on Regulation of AI
The EU is poised to effectively become the world’s AI police, creating binding rules on transparency, ethics, and more. Here are five things you need to know about the EU’s new AI Act. • AI companies still have a lot of wiggle room to develop and deploy AI systems, especially those that are not classified as high risk or prohibited. • The EU will become the world’s premier AI police, creating a new AI Board and a network of national authorities to monitor and enforce the AI Act. • National security always wins, meaning that the AI Act will not apply to AI systems used for military or intelligence purposes by EU member states or their allies. • The AI Act still needs to be formally adopted by the European Parliament and the Council, and it will enter into force two years after its publication.
