2018 will be another year in which the Internet of Things (IoT) will be massive. Here we look at the key IoT predictions from the IBM Watson IoT team, which include the rise of artificial intelligence in IoT, edge computing and more.
And merging neutron stars might not help solve the problem at all.
“As Spiderman and Voltaire said … with great power comes great responsibility.”
How two Dutch physicists investigated a mysterious quantum property, used a nonsensical analogy, and brought about a revolution
And Paul Halpern’s new book, ‘The Quantum Labyrinth,’ is the perfect way to see how.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is forcing telecom providers, enterprises and cloud providers to change their business models not to just thrive, but survive. Although not new, advances in interest, infrastructure and information have put IoT in a position to fundamentally change how business is done.
In 2020, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will become a positive net job motivator, creating 2.3M jobs while eliminating only 1.8M jobs. By 2020, IoT technology will be in 95% of electronics for new product designs. These and many other insights are being presented today at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2017.
Could emergent gravity, where it’s entropy that’s the fundamental quantity in the Universe, revolutionize our understanding of how it all works?
At a fundamental level, could the Universe be made up of not of particles, but rather of mere quantum bits of information?
Dark matter has been the dominant idea to explain the apparent ‘missing mass’ of the Universe for 40+ years. Could a new conception of gravity get rid of it entirely?
IBM, Scientists Seek Public’s Help With Millions Of Virtual Experiments Mapping The Human Microbiome
The Microbiome Immunity Project aims to help scientists understand how the trillions of bacteria in our bodies impact human disease. IBM’s World Community Grid wants to harness the computing power donated by millions of volunteers from all over the world to do it.
Some people claim that quantum physics is too arcane and remote to have practical applications, but modern life would be impossible without our understanding of the quantum nature of light and matter.
The cosmic distances to the most distant objects are great, but there’s even more out there for us to explore.
The FDA approval of a cloud based machine learning application to be used in a clinical setting to help physicians understand how a heart is functioning signals a major breakthrough. Cutting examination time from up to an hour to just 15 seconds paves the way for more AI algorithms in healthcare.
What can gene-edited stem cells teach us about human disease? Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen is funding a new effort to find the answer.
Besturn B30 EV, by Tycho de Feijter The spectacular growth of the New Energy Vehicle (NEV) market in China continues; state media reports that sales were up a massive 162% to 170,000 units in the first half of the year. NEVs include pure-electric vehicles (EV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). The […]
IBM just opened up access to one of its 5-qubit quantum processors for anyone to use by connecting it to the cloud. Here’s what it means for quantum research–and IBM’s top-line in years to come.
By Bryan Borzykowski Imagine knowing years in advance whether or not you’ll get cancer and treating it now instead of when the disease appears. What if a doctor could call you hours before suffering a heart attack to tell you to get to the hospital? This may sound like something out […]
Can a person pull along a blue whale? A robot of human weight will be able to.
As a moderately active angel investor, I spend a lot of time reviewing legal documents. It’s a long, slow, laborious process and one which on the one hand introduces significant risks (what if I miss something important?) while on the other adding almost zero value to a transaction (after all, […]
