Exclusive: OpenAI Used Kenyan Workers on Less Than $2 Per Hour to Make ChatGPT Less Toxic

Computer-generated text, images, video, and audio will transform the way countless industries do business, the most bullish investors believe, boosting efficiency everywhere from the creative arts, to law, to computer programming.

Strange but true: the expanding Universe doesn’t conserve energy

One of the most important laws in all of physics is the conservation of energy: that energy can change forms, but can never be created nor destroyed.  At a fundamental level, however, that’s only true because there’s an underlying symmetry that the Universe obeys: time-translation symmetry, that it’s the same from one moment to the next.  Only, that’s not true in the expanding Universe: the Universe is different from one moment to the next. As a result, energy is not conserved, with truly cosmic implications.
