Meet The World’s First AI Brewer🍻
NightShiftBrewing’s AI Beer
Night Shift Brewing, a craft beer joint in Massachusetts, has news brewing that'll make your taste buds tingle - they just added some artificial intelligence to their team.
The founders of the chain know their way around a brew kettle, but when the pandemic and a worldwide carbon dioxide shortage hit, they needed help to get back in the game.
That's where tools like ChatGPT and Midjourney came in.
Hazy IPA is (partially) the result of artificial intelligence - from the recipe to the beer name to the label itself.
The models (aptly) decided to call their creation "AI-P-A," and it's already getting rave reviews.
While Night Shift's co-founders aren’t replacing any jobs just yet, they see this as a really cool way to get creative and try out wacky new ideas. And honestly? We’re here for it.
Harvard’s Drones are Talking to Bees 🐝
Ten years ago, Harvard unveiled finger-sized drones that weighed less than a gram and flew a few inches up from the ground. Hundreds of renditions and a strong dash of AI later, they’ve figured out how to fool the bees.
RoboBees mimic regular bees’ size and wing patterns
Enter RoboBees - untethered solar-powered mini beasts that mimic real bees’ movements and sound to effectively communicate with them.
Researchers think these could eventually fill the ecological gap left by their real-life counterparts and help with pollination by collecting nectar and pollen…
At the moment though, they’re just darn cool pieces of tech that give us a peek into what a world with genuine biomimicry would look like.
Why This Matters: Animals have had hundreds of millions of years to evolve to their most optimal structures. While we don’t anticipate robotic bees will ever be as cute and fuzzy as the real thing, microrobots inspired by nature could easily grow into a multi-billion dollar industry in the near future.
