Relentless Centering: These Inclusive Accelerator Programs Are Encouraging The Next Generation Of AI Tech
by Annie Brown Contributor, COGNITIVE WORLD Contributor Group
One might think that in 2020 the inclusion of Black, Indigenous, POC, Women, LGBTQIA and other marginalized voices would be understood as a priority in achieving technology’s full positive potential. However, as we are forced continue to fight for equality in our physical society – the struggle to eliminate bias, discrimination and hate from our digital lives continues as well.
The good news is that there are organizations within the technology/startup sector working overtime to ensure that the next generation of advanced technologies are built by diverse teams.
How and Why Major Stars Are Embracing Tokenization
by VICTOR ZHANG
The next step toward blockchain adoption could be tokenized technological solutions implemented as a financial instrument within the entertainment industry.
Over the last two years, the cryptocurrency industry has gone through a paradigm shift, as developers, projects and users have begun applying blockchain technologies to ever more innovative and intriguing use cases.
Among these, the tokenization of entertainers, sports stars and big personalities stands out as one of the most unusual recent trends because traditional sports, entertainment and modern technologies like blockchain seem like an unlikely pairing.
Electron ‘teleportation’ could push quantum computing forward

Quantum teleportation may be possible between electrons, researchers say.
In the quantum world, teleportation involves the transportation of information, rather than the transportation of matter like in science fiction.
Last year, scientists confirmed that information could be passed between photons on computer chips even when the photons were not physically linked.

Black Hole Bounty Captured in the Center of the Milky Way
Last Updated: June 19, 2020, Editor: Yvette Smith
Astronomers have discovered evidence for thousands of black holes located near the center of our Milky Way galaxy using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory.
This black hole bounty consists of stellar-mass black holes, which typically weigh between five to 30 times the mass of our Sun. These newly identified black holes were found within three light-years — a relatively short distance on cosmic scales — of the supermassive black hole at our Galaxy’s center known as Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*).
Theoretical studies of the dynamics of stars in galaxies have indicated that a large population of stellar mass black holes — as many as 20,000 — could drift inward over the eons and collect around Sgr A*. This recent analysis using Chandra data is the first observational evidence for such a black hole bounty.
A black hole by itself is invisible. However, a black hole — or neutron star — locked in close orbit with a star will pull gas from its companion (astronomers call these systems “X-ray binaries”). This material falls into a disk and heats up to millions of degrees and produces X-rays before disappearing into the black hole. Some of these X-ray binaries appear as point-like sources in the Chandra image.
