Artificial intelligence is transforming ERP solutions

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

Without a doubt, artificial intelligence (AI) will have a profound impact on the footprint of enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions in the foreseeable future. AI will enable organizations to further optimize their operating model made up of business processes, software applications, governance structures and technology infrastructure.

California Startup Made In Space to Make Optical Fiber in Orbit

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, internet, space travel

Society is about to take another big step into the age of space-based manufacturing.

Early next year, California-based startup Made In Space plans to launch a machine to the International Space Station (ISS) that will produce ZBLAN optical fiber.

ZBLAN has the potential to be much more efficient than the silica-based fiber currently used in the internet and telecommunications industries, but it’s tough to make here on Earth because the planet’s strong gravitational pull induces imperfections in the ZBLAN crystal lattice, Made In Space representatives said.

How Smart Beta ETFs of the Future Will Use AI

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biological, computing, economics, finance, information science, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Anyone who does not have QC as part of their 5+Yr Roadmap for IT are truly exposing their company as well as shareholders and customers. China, Russia, Cartels, DarkNet, etc. will use the technology to extort victims, destroy companies, economies, and complete countries where folks have not planned, budget, skilled up, and prep for full replacement of their infrastructure and Net access. Not to mention companies who have this infrastructure will provide better services/ CCE to svc. consumers.


In a recent article, we highlighted a smart beta ETF called the “Sprott BUZZ Social Media Insights ETF” that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to select and weight stocks. If we stop and think about that for a moment, that’s a pretty cool use of AI that seems well ahead of its time. Now we’re not saying that you should go out and buy this smart beta ETF right away. It uses social media data. We know that on social media, everyone’s an expert and many of the opinions that are stated are just that, opinions. However some of the signals may be legitimate. Someone who just bought Apple is likely to go on telling everyone how bullish they are on Apple shares. Bullish behavior is often accompanied by bullish rhetoric. And maybe that’s exactly the point, but the extent to which we’re actually using artificial intelligence here is not that meaningful. Simple scripting tools go out and scrape all this public data and then we use natural language processing (NLP) algorithms to determine if the data artifacts have a positive or negative sentiment. That’s not that intelligent, is it? This made us start to think about what it would take to create a truly “intelligent” smart beta ETF.

Scientists Target 2026 As The Year of The First Synthetic Genome

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, futurism

Less than 10 years.


In Brief:

  • A human genome contains 3 billion base pairs, one project is seeking to write a complete human genome, besting current efforts able to produce 1 million pairs.
  • The researchers are looking to the future in hopes that their work will spur even further growth in science and technology.

Stanford Scientist: We’ll Have A Century of Medical Advances in the Next Decade

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Nice!!!! Plus, we must keep in mind advances are accelerating like never before because tech industry is helping us knock out 2 things under each program due to the new usage of synthetic bio in systems and hardware. Example, DNA storage, MSFT’s work in other Synbio is also streamlined to find a cure for diabetes, Google and its own Synbio work is also inherently able to be used to help find a cure for cancer, etc.


In Brief:

Google, Microsoft, Apple, And the CIA Are Building Machines To Usher in ‘New Age’ Artificial Intelligence

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Glad folks have realized. However, this has been going on for a while; AI-QC is a different twist on things in the more recent 5 years.


Google, Microsoft, Apple, and the CIA are working on new artificial intelligence technologies, that paint a very 1984 picture of the USA.

Mars Medical Challenge Asks Students to Design 3D Printable Items to Keep Astronauts Healthy on Mars

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, education, engineering, space travel

The team of NASA, the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME), and online educational platform Future Engineers has been a lot of fun to follow over the last year. Their collaborative 3D Printing in Space Challenges have resulted in some amazing, ingenious inventions from children as young as five years old, all aimed at improving the daily lives of astronauts now and in the future, on the International Space Station and, one day, on Mars.

The Nine Billion Names Of God

Posted by in categories: information science, mathematics, particle physics, quantum physics

Quantum theory is strange and counterintuitive, but it’s very precise. Lots of analogies and broad concepts are presented in popular science trying to give an accurate description of quantum behavior, but if you really want to understand how quantum theory (or any other theory) works, you need to look at the mathematical details. It’s only the mathematics that shows us what’s truly going on.

Mathematically, a quantum object is described by a function of complex numbers governed by the Schrödinger equation. This function is known as the wavefunction, and it allows you to determine quantum behavior. The wavefunction represents the state of the system, which tells you the probability of various outcomes to a particular experiment (observation). To find the probability, you simply multiply the wavefunction by its complex conjugate. This is how quantum objects can have wavelike properties (the wavefunction) and particle properties (the probable outcome).

No, wait. Actually a quantum object is described by a mathematical quantity known as a matrix. As Werner Heisenberg showed, each type of quantity you could observe (position, momentum, energy) is represented by a matrix as well (known as an operator). By multiplying the operator and the quantum state matrix in a particular way, you get the probability of a particular outcome. The wavelike behavior is a result of the multiple connections between states within the matrix.
