Traditional passports may be replaced by human heartbeats in the future
Experts believe that by 2070, travel won’t require passports, suitcases, tour guides, or translation dictionaries. The experts are forecasting that passengers’ heartbeat signatures, which are unique to each person, will be used alongside their biometric information to check a person’s identity.
They also believe that plane seats will be able to adapt to a person’s body shape, and optoelectronic inflight entertainment will see content get beamed directly to passengers’ eyes. That’s not all: a language hearing aid will translate other languages in real-time, making the term ‘language barrier’ a thing of the past. The experts expect smart rooms that allow guests to choose their desired bed firmness, room temperature, and ambient music to be introduced. And, advancements in 3D printing will mean you can arrive without a suitcase, as you will simply print the clothes and items you need when you arrive, only to pop them in a recycling bin when returning.
The world’s first AI-generated art gallery has opened in Amsterdam
the world’s very first AI-generated art gallery has opened in Amsterdam. Located near other outlandish attractions in Amsterdam’s central De Wallen neighbourhood, Dead End Gallery features the inventive creations of AI machines and algorithms ranging from digital paintings to interactive installations. Talking to euronews about the unique exhibition, Constant Brinkman from Dead End Gallery said: ‘We are the first gallery in the world to physically exhibit AI-generated art, AI-generated artists.’
Those who want to buy any of the pieces might have to double-check their savings account. When one of the AI artists, Irisa Nova, was asked how much its paintings were worth, it said: ‘The estimated asking price for the curator could vary between €3,000 and €10,000.’
Yosemite National Park to partially reopen after 3-week closure
Yosemite National Park to partially reopen after 3-week closure. The popular park, nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains, was closed because of a series of damaging storms that have swept across the region in recent weeks. Since February 21, the park has seen more than 15 feet (4.6 meters) of snow at Tuolumne Meadows, higher than the average single story house. Warmer storms left behind 21 inches (53 centimeters) of rain.
The main roads are cleared, and snow has been plowed in the upper elevations. The park’s smaller roads will remain closed, along with the areas of the park they serve. Yosemite will be open from sunrise to sunset this weekend. The park plans to expand to 24 hours in the Yosemite Valley on Monday, with limited overnight lodging. Campgrounds will remain closed as they are still buried in snow.
