Contrarian Views: Is AI Increasing Productivity Or Not?

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Earlier this year, I had the wonderful opportunity to speak at the Global SIBOS Conference held this year in Toronto.

This article discusses contrarian views on AI increasing value or reducing productivity like most new technologies have as productivity is done since the 1980s.

China soars Starlink-challenger satellite network to counter Elon Musk

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, energy, internet, satellites

The network’s total capacity will surpass 500 Gbps by 2025.

While China is already marching ahead with its internet infrastructure, the country has announced the completion of its first high-orbit satellite communication network, which aims to provide fast and reliable internet service within its territory and to several countries along its Belt and Road initiative.

The network, which consists of three high-throughput satellites named ChinaSat 16, 19, and 26, is expected to compete with SpaceX’s Starlink, a low-orbit satellite system developed by the American aerospace company, according to a Beijing-based communications expert.

British Army to test ChatGPT-enhanced target robots for combat training

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

UK MoD enhances combat training with ChatGPT in SimStriker robots, enabling dynamic soldier-target conversations for realistic scenarios.

SimStriker: A breakthrough in close combat training

SimStriker, developed by 4GD in 2020, has already been used at the SmartFacility in Colchester, UK, where it currently serves the British Army’s 16th Air Assault Brigade. The facility logged over 1,200 hours of training in 2022, engaging various users, including the Ministry of Defence police and civilian participants.

Japanese experimental nuclear fusion reactor inaugurated

Posted by in categories: futurism, nuclear energy

The world’s biggest experimental nuclear fusion reactor in operation was inaugurated in Japan on Friday, a technology in its infancy but billed by some as the answer to humanity’s future energy needs.

Fusion differs from fission, the technique currently used in nuclear power plants, by fusing two atomic nuclei instead of splitting one.

The goal of the JT-60SA reactor is to investigate the feasibility of fusion as a safe, large-scale and carbon-free source of net energy—with more energy generated than is put into producing it.

Citizen scientists help discover new mantis species

Posted by in category: futurism

James Cook University researcher Matthew Connors has discovered two new praying mantis species with the help of citizen scientists. The finds have been published in Zootaxa.

One of these new mantises is not just a but an entirely new genus—the classification level above species—and was discovered thanks to citizen scientist Glenda Walter.

We have named the new species Inimia nat—I. nat for short—as it was discovered thanks to the citizen science platform iNaturalist—also iNat for short.

Enterprise Knowledge: A Unifying Technological Vision for the Future of Radiology

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

Additionally, GAI helps radiologists cross-reference comorbidities in a way that was not possible before. For instance, people with certain types of autoimmune arthritis have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes). These conditions might seem unrelated, but if a CT scan reveals calcifications in the coronary arteries, GAI can facilitate informing the radiologist and treating physician of this important biomarker. These types of added value are not just consumer conveniences. As potentiators of clinical research and effectuators of episodes of care, they can save the lives of patients.

Leaning into the whole.
