Exploring Tesla Model S High Voltage Cabling

Posted by in categories: education, engineering, sustainability, transportation

When he’s not busy with his day job as professor of computer and automotive engineering at Weber State University, [John Kelly] is a prolific producer of educational videos. We found his video tracing out the 22+ meters of high voltage cabling in a Tesla Model S (below the break) quite interesting. [John] does warn that his videos are highly detailed and may not be for everyone:

This is not the Disney Channel. If you are looking to be entertained, this is not the channel for you.

How Superintelligent AI Will Likely Transform Our Future

Posted by in categories: biological, education, food, robotics/AI

Is artificial superintelligence (ASI) imminent? Adam Ford will assess the evidence and ethical importance of artificial intelligence; its opportunities and risks. Drawing on the history of progress in AI and how today it surpasses peak human capability in some domains, he will present forecasts about further progress.

“Progress in AI will likely be explosive; even more significant than both the agricultural and industrial revolutions” — Adam will explore the notion of intelligence and what aspects are missing in AI now and how ‘understanding’ arises in biological intelligence and how it could be realised in AI over the next decade or two. He will conclude with takes on ideal AI outcomes and some recommendations for increasing the likelihood of achieving them.

BIO: Adam Ford (Masters of IT at RMIT) is an IEET Affiliate Scholar, a futurologist and works as a data/information architect, a data analyst and data engineer. He co-organised a variety of conferences in Australia, USA and China. Adam also convenes the global effort of ‘Future Day’ seeking to ritualize focus on the future to a specific day. He is a grass roots journalist, having interviewed many experts on the future, and is currently working on a documentary project focusing on preparing for the future of artificial intelligence.

Are 3D-Printed Schools a Solution to Africa’s Classroom Shortage?

Posted by in categories: education, energy, finance

Olipa Elisa said her 10-year-old son used to have to hike 5km (3 miles) every day to the nearest school, often arriving late and exhausted.

“I am very excited that we now have a school closer to my home, and my child will not have to take the long journey,” said Elisa, 38. “What we need is more of these learning blocks to accommodate other classes.”

Run by 14Trees, a joint venture between Swiss cement manufacturer LafargeHolcim and British development finance agency CDC Group, the project was faster, cheaper and less energy-intensive than conventional construction, said 14Trees managing director Francois Perrot.

Responding To The Washington Post Hatchet Job On Electric Cars & Winter Driving

Posted by in categories: chemistry, education, law, neuroscience, sustainability

An editorial writer and columnist for the Washington Post wrote a screed attacking electric cars this week. His heavily slanted piece was filled with misinformation. Here’s the truth about driving an electric car in winter.

Last week, hundreds of motorists on I-95 in Virginia were stuck for hours when a blizzard closed the highway south of Washington, DC. Highway crews couldn’t spread ice-melting chemicals before the storm arrived because the rain that preceded it would have washed them away. But when temperatures dropped, the rain quickly turned to ice. Then the snow came and made the ice treacherously slippery. Tractor trailers trying to get off the highway lost control, blocking many exit ramps. Senator Tim Kaine was trapped in the tangled mess of stalled cars for 27 hours.

H-Tec Systems researches mass production of PEM electrolysers

Posted by in categories: education, robotics/AI

H-Tec Systems receives research funding to advance research project PEP.IN with PEM electrolysers expertise as part of the H2Giga hydrogen project.

Augsburg-based hydrogen technology company H-Tec Systems is now officially part of the H2Giga hydrogen project for research & development into the series production of PEM electrolysis stacks and electrolysers. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is supporting H2Giga with a total funding volume of up to 500 million euros. The aim is to identify and test novel processes for the competitive mass production of electrolysers in Germany to make green hydrogen affordable and competitive.

As an expert and visionary in green hydrogen technology, H-Tec Systems is receiving research funding for the H2Giga project “PEP.IN” to further advance series production. By spring 2025, H-Tec Systems will identify new production processes for PEM electrolysis stacks and electrolysers in the gigawatt range and develop corresponding test facilities to quickly set up and commence series production.
