Laser Weapon Systems

Posted by in categories: energy, military

Science reality has caught up with science fiction. Lockheed Martin is showing that laser weapon systems can turn up the heat and stop land, air or sea targets in their path. And, they can be compact enough and power efficient enough for tactical platforms on the move, providing nearly unlimited “bullets” with speed-of-light response.

IBM Has Devised a Way to “Grow” Computer Chips

Posted by in categories: computing, nanotechnology

In Brief

  • Scientists have devised a way, inspired by nature, of coaxing carbon nanotubes to build themselves into structures that could be used to replace silicon chips.
  • The successful implementation of this technology could lead to faster than silicon computer chips along with bendable electronics.

Traditionally, computer microchips are made of the semiconductor silicon. Silicon is turned into wafers where complex circuitry is carved—but there’s a limit to this complexity and to the chips’ processing capacity, and it’s coming soon.

Scientist from IBM are ushering in a revolution of microchip design by seeking to use carbon nanotubes. The researchers theorize that these nanotube chips could use less electricity, and be six to ten times faster than silicon-based ones.

Robots will create jobs for creative people, says company that tries to predict the future

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI

Robots will not replace every worker and their use in the workplace will lead to more jobs for people who are creative, according to a company that aims to predict the future.

Artificial intelligence (AI) will operate alongside humans to “take away the grind” from work, enabling people to be more imaginative and productive, experts from The Future Laboratory told a Microsoft Surface event.

“Robots will actually create jobs because humans have unique thinking,” Steve Tooze, Special Projects Editor at The Future Laboratory, said. “They will take away the grind that we don’t want to do. This will free us up to the imaginative stuff, the creative stuff.”
