The Heart Is Not Enough: How the Controversy about a Chat Bot Reveals the Shaky Foundations of Moral Status

NFTs

“NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are digital assets that are unique and cannot be replicated. They are different from traditional cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin because they represent a specific unit of ownership rather than acting as a general medium of exchange.”


Quantum Computing

Why the Future is Quantum

“Take cryptography, for example: essential to both military and civilian networks, it relies on scrambling data with complex mathematical formulae that would take decades of computer time to crack. Until quantum computers arrive, that is. Luckily, Australian universities have impressive theoretical and experimental expertise in quantum communications technology, including quantum cryptography, which both rely on the spooky properties of quantum mechanics to make communications impossible to decode.”


Music

Why today’s music creators are no longer playing the fame game

“Under the traditional streaming model, creators earn low revenue per fan from a mass, but passive, listener base — something few can achieve. By contrast, the ‘creator economy’ model allows artists to earn higher revenue per fan from their biggest supporters — prioritising remuneration over fame.”


Journalism
