The rise of quantum materials

Posted by in categories: energy, health, materials, neuroscience, quantum physics

Every time we have a step forward with Quantum for industries like technology, wireless & telecom, manufacturing, energy, etc.; we also gain a steps for healthcare in so many ways such as Q-DOTs eradicating super Bug Viruses, Brain Mind Interface capabilities, implants, etc. Why I luv Quantum so much.

Emergent phenomena are common in condensed matter. Their study now extends beyond strongly correlated electron systems, giving rise to the broader concept of quantum materials.

I hope they don’t make this for Ps4 otherwise that will be the only platinum I won’t be able to get… Actually, I wonder if it’s vegetables friendly.

Solar-Powered Floating Farms That Can Produce 20 Tons of Vegetables Every Day

Posted by in categories: employment, food, solar power, sustainability

Traditional farming has challenges that are now being overcome by innovative and sustainable solutions. One instance is a floating island that is powered by solar energy and has several farms that were created by the Forward Thinking Architecture. The islands are designed to work in an energy efficient manner where rainwater and sunlight are harvested so that the farming is done in a sustainable manner. The floating farms are designed to produce vegetables of the amount twenty tons every day. The advantage of this approach is that it has paved the way for farms such as this to be built and run across the world, even in places that are not accessible or do not have the right resources for farming. Locals can grow the food they need and reduce the need to import food and other goods which can then save money and provide opportunities for local employment. The floating farms and their amazing technology and possibilities are shown below. There are links given as well for those who wish to know more. It surely will revolutionize the problems of food production that has been plaguing many countries.

This is Microsoft’s plan to power the internet from under the sea

Posted by in categories: energy, internet

Microsoft has a radical plan to change the way we power content on the internet. And it involves installing data centers in the ocean.

Microsoft Research.

We use data centers for just about everything we see on the web: websites, images, videos, and software are all powered by servers that can both store and ship tons of data in mere seconds.

New Breakthrough Means Huge Leap Forward for Quantum Computing

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

Researchers have discovered a new method of heat conduction that is a ten-thousand-fold improvement over earlier attempts. The novel invention forms a necessary step in the creation of super-cooled quantum computing.

A group of Finnish scientists at Aalto University have made a stunning breakthrough in heat transference, and the implications are potentially revolutionary.

Can Photon Probabilities Change the World?

Posted by in categories: computing, materials, particle physics, quantum physics, transportation

Did you know that Quantum Theory does not know how probabilities are implemented in Nature? And for that matter neither does any other physical theory. Why? Or why not? The closest Quantum Theory comes to explaining probabilities, is to guess that a particle’s wave function is related to its probabilities. That’s it!

Why do we need to ask this question? Commercial opportunities. Imagine if you could control where a photon localizes (captured by an atom). Particle detectors become significantly more sensitive. Boring? No, in fact, DARPA aims to precisely spot single photons and explore the Fundamental Limits of Photon Detection. Anti-stealth is one application. Imagine if you didn’t need 1,000,000 radio wave photons to determine an aircraft’s radar signature, but only a 1,000?

Using probabilities to control photon switching “circuits”, probability switches. Imagine an empty box with optical cables entering and exiting. These probability switches cause photons to exit through different optical cables by controlling where they localize within the box. What if we could build computers with materials lighter than a feather to switch photon paths, instead of heavy silicon or gallium arsenide to switch electron paths? Imagine how fast these switches could operate, as no matter is involved.

World’s First Single-Atom Optical Switch Fabricated

Posted by in categories: neuroscience, quantum physics, robotics/AI, singularity

Things keep getting better and better for Quantum and Brain Interfaces/ implants as well. What you have to love is the fact how Quantum Dots and it’s research helps us both technically and medically as well. When I reported 2 weeks ago about Quantum Q-Dots; what I did not share is how Q-Dots could be leveraged to wipe out many Super Bug Viruses. And, this is why things are really stepping up in AI/ Robotics, Brain Mind Interfaces, micro bots, etc. Definitely on a path to singularity.

Plasmonics enable wavelengths of light to shrink to the nanometer scale.

World First, Country to Offer Free Hand Transplants

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education

A cutting edge surgical procedure is set to improve the quality of life of eligible transplant patients, who will receive a state funded hand transplant.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust will be the first hospital in the UK to offer hand transplants. The hospital is set to begin performing operation towards the latter end of this year (2016).

Notably, consultant plastic surgeon Professor Simon Kay states that this will be the first nationally funded hand transplant hospital: “There have been lots of hand transplants around the world but this is the first time a national funding organisation has closely examined the issue, come up with the conclusion that it’s worth pursuing and is now going to fund it nationally in one centre,” he stated in an interview with the Telegraph.
