To build a better AI helper, start by modeling the irrational behavior of humans
A new technique can be used to predict the actions of human or AI agents who behave suboptimally while working toward unknown goals. To build AI systems that can collaborate effectively with humans, it helps to have a good model of human behavior to start with. But humans tend to behave suboptimally when making decisions.

Jupiter’s Moon Io has been Volcanically Active for Billions of Years
Jupiter's moon Io is the most volcanically active place in the solar system. During its 1.8-day orbit, this moon is gravitationally squeezed by Jupiter, leading to volcanic eruptions larger than any on Earth today. Io, Europa, and Ganymede are in an orbital configuration known as a Laplace resonance: For every orbit of Ganymede (the farthest of the three from Jupiter), Europa completes exactly two orbits, and Io completes exactly four.

Unraveling the Mysteries of Consecutive Atmospheric River Events
In California's 2022-2023 winter season, the state faced nine atmospheric rivers (ARs) that led to extreme flooding,Ölandslides, and power outages - the longest duration of continuous AR conditions in the past 70 years. Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ÜBerkeley Lab) recently conducted a study using machine learning to better understand these complex weather systems, finding that more intense atmospheric rivers are more likely to occur in succession within a short period of time.
