US observed Russian navy preparing for possible test of nuclear-powered torpedo

Posted by in categories: military, nuclear energy, robotics/AI

The US observed Russian naval vessels preparing for a possible test of a new nuclear-powered torpedo in recent weeks, a senior US official with direct knowledge told CNN.

Among the vessels which took part in the preparations was the Belgorod, a cruise missile submarine modified for special operations that is able to launch unmanned underwater vehicles including the Poseidon torpedo.

In the last week, the vessels were observed leaving the testing area in the Arctic Sea and heading back to port without carrying out a test. The US believes the Russians may have encountered technical difficulties.

Welcome! You are invited to join a webinar: Winning partnerships — Key to 5G Monetization: Evolving Ecosystems to the Metaverse. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the webinar

Posted by in categories: business, internet, robotics/AI

Successfully navigating the 5G transformation requires automation every step of the way—from network planning and preparation through implementation and monetization. 5G has made the consumers more empowered and demanding and this creates a need for CSPs to monetize beyond data bundles and introduce indirect monetization mechanisms. What CSPs must now do is look at investing in platforms that enable them to monetize innovative 5G business models.

CSPs have a huge opportunity to create new complex products and solutions for the B2B2C market assembled with the help of multiple partners. But this isn’t just a one-way opportunity. The biggest benefit of this model is the CSPs’ ability to participate in value chains and ecosystems that are orchestrated jointly with partners. CSPs will increasingly use partners to extend owned capabilities across product cocreation, marketing, sales, delivery, and customer support.

Moreover, CSPs need to evolve towards becoming service enablers and partner with businesses, developers, and other players across different domains and industries in order to create unique 5G service offerings to differentiate themselves in the market. To find success in the 5G era, they will need to maintain an ecosystem of partners that allow them to innovate and expand its reach across industry verticals. This will result in automated processes, the ability to launch any partner model, reduced time to market and reduced operational costs.

Matter–antimatter gigaelectron volt gamma ray laser rocket propulsion

face_with_colon_three circa 2012.

It is shown that the idea of a photon rocket through the complete annihilation of matter with antimatter, first proposed by Sänger, is not a utopian scheme as it is widely believed. Its feasibility appears to be possible by the radiative collapse of a relativistic high current pinch discharge in a hydrogen–antihydrogen ambiplasma down to a radius determined by Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. Through this collapse to ultrahigh densities the proton–antiproton pairs in the center of the pinch can become the upper gigaelectron volt laser level for the transition into a coherent gamma ray beam by proton–antiproton annihilation, with the magnetic field of the collapsed pinch discharge absorbing the recoil momentum of the beam and transmitting it by the Moessbauer effect to the spacecraft. The gamma ray laser beam is launched as a photon avalanche from one end of the pinch discharge channel. Because of the enormous technical problems to produce and store large amounts of anti-matter, such a propulsion concept may find its first realization in small unmanned space probes to explore nearby solar systems. The laboratory demonstration of a gigaelectron volt gamma ray laser by comparison requiring small amounts of anti-matter may be much closer.

BodyTrak wrist camera constructs 3D models of the body in real time

Posted by in categories: health, robotics/AI, wearables

Wearable technology is capable of tracking various measures of human health and is getting better all the time. New research shows how this could come to mean real-time feedback on posture and body mechanics. A research team at Cornell University has demonstrated this functionality in a novel camera system for the wrist, which it hopes to work into smartwatches of the future.

The system is dubbed BodyTrak and comes from the same lab behind a face-tracking wearable we looked at earlier in the year that is able to recreate facial expressions on a digital avatar through sonar. This time around, the group made use of a tiny dime-sized RGB camera and a customized AI to construct models of the entire body.

The camera is worn on the wrist and relays basic images of body parts in motion to a deep neural network, which had been trained to turn these snippets into virtual recreations of the body. This works in real time and fills in the blanks left by the camera’s images to construct 3D models of the body in 14 different poses.
