Enterprise Fellowships to kick-start the quantum technology industry

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, energy, engineering, finance, health, internet, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Luv this.


The University of Bristol’s Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre (QTEC) is looking to recruit its first cohort of Enterprise Fellows that will be the next generation of quantum technology entrepreneurs.

Merging training in systems thinking, quantum engineering and entrepreneurship, QTEC will provide the necessary skills for budding innovators to develop their own business ideas and for them to branch out into the emerging field of quantum technologies.

The Centre, which is the first of its kind in the world, was funded as part of the UK’s £270 million investment into quantum technologies. These technologies exploit the laws of quantum mechanics to create practical and useful technologies that will outperform their classical rivals and that have the potential to transform artificial intelligence, healthcare, energy, finance, cyber security and the internet.

How Heidi Klum fooled the Internet into thinking her new ad is a Sia video

Posted by in categories: business, internet, virtual reality

The team is now embarking on its most ambitious project yet, a wide-reaching virtual reality network called Project Sansar that is, in many ways, aiming to become a new layer of reality that gives individuals and businesses a space to experiment with VR environments for their first time.

I had the chance to sit down for a demo of Sansar with Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg this past week and take an early look into some of the platform’s first environments.

Traversing the worlds of Sansar and chatting with my guide, Linden Lab VP of Product Bjorn Laurin, was a mostly seamless experience but still an oddly unsettling one. It’s not that anything was particularly creepy about the place I was viewing through an Oculus Rift headset. Sansar is visually placid and often beautiful, but it’s also startlingly scalable and boundless. Scale is something that’s often taken for granted in an age of video game epics like Skyrim and GTAV, but when every horizon you see through your own point-of-view is conquerable, you’re left to either feel very bold or very lost.

Robots Replacing Developers? This Startup Uses Artificial Intelligence To Build Smart Software

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI, virtual reality, wearables

The role of technology within our personal and professional lives continues evolving at an exceptionally fast pace. From utility-based mobile apps and wearable devices, to the emergence of augmented and virtual reality, the digital revolution is expanding to cover every aspect of the human experience.

In an era of entrepreneurship, founders rely heavily on advancements in technology to develop cutting edge products, platforms and experiences that meet the growing demands of a global consumer base. As content remains essential to building a brand or launching a business, it’s also critical that companies have the capability to swiftly adapt in changing markets. Being able to successfully scale a business, amidst the inevitable pivots and unexpected turns, requires having access to the tools and solution-based software needed to create, modify and fix things on-demand.

For companies dependent on manpower to manage these responsibilities, efficiency becomes contingent upon talent and training, guided by sharp instincts and relentlessly working around the clock to assure tasks are not only completed effectively, but to further offset the likelihood of human error. For software developers, who have an extremely detailed and meticulous role, being such an invaluable piece to the puzzle can prove to be very risky, time-consuming and equally as expensive; especially as testing, predicting and automating becomes increasingly paramount. As companies aim to cut costs without sacrificing quality, while understanding the core function of technology is to provide streamline solutions to complex problems, what arises is the notorious battle of man versus machine, and also where a company like Dev9 steps in.

Has the Tech Industry Got Wearables All Wrong?

Posted by in categories: business, transportation, wearables

Personally, I wouldn’t state that tech got the whole wearables wrong; its more been operated in a mode of experimentation with the public in an order to perfect the technology. I believe we’re now on a track to broaden this technology to accommodate more consumers on multiple levels such as business travelers may wish to have suits and bus attire that self cleans and can (when your wearing and biosensor is activated) be leveraged to store your id information or when you’re processed through airports instead of having to juggle for your license/ passport.


The key to unlocking the $150 billion wearables market is textiles not silicon.

Russia’s hyperloop dream is undone

Posted by in categories: business, economics, Elon Musk, finance, transportation

Sad for Russia.


President Vladimir Putin and other Russian officials dream of a technological leap that could immediately close the gap between Russia and more advanced economies, as Sputnik did for the Soviet Union. The hyperloop, a kind of train in a tube that can reach speeds of up to 700 mph, fits that dream, and a well-connected Russian businessman has invested in it — only to see the project become embroiled in a lawsuit involving a Silicon Valley startup’s founders and claims of financial mismanagement.

Elon Musk, Tesla’s chief executive, proposed the hyperloop four years ago. This “fifth mode of transport” would involve a system of practically airless tubes through which magnetically levitated pods could carry passengers and cargo. Musk has not set up a company to bring the project to reality, but others have. For example, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, wants to build a system in Slovakia. Another, Hyperloop One, offered a public demonstration of some elements of its technology in May.

Raketa Watches Trials Blockchain Technology to Fight Counterfeiting

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, business, space

Blockchain Engine and Petrodvorets Watch Factory have introduced blockchain technology into the manufacturing process of Raketa watches, making Raketa one of the first companies in the world to record the production of physical goods in the blockchain.

Established by Peter the Great in 1721, Petrodvorets Watch Factory is one of Russia’s oldest businesses. After the Second World War, the factory produced watches under the brand name Pobeda until 1961, when production of the Raketa [Rocket] watches started, named in honor of the first flight into space by Yuri Gagarin.

In a bid to restructure the historical watch brand, the company entered a rebranding stage in 2009 under the direction of Russian, Swiss and French experts, with director Jacques von Polier heading the creative and design department.
