A self-flying plane

boeing-819289 (1)

Boeing plans to test self-flying technology in a cockpit simulator this year, before using it on a real plane next year. It wants to develop autonomous aircraft, which would be capable of navigating themselves without any input from a human pilot. Planes can already take off, cruise and land with minimal human assistance, but Boeing wants to go a step further. It wants artificial intelligence to start making some of the decisions pilots are trusted to make. This will mean fewer pilots per plane are needed in future-instead of five pilots on a long haul flight down to three or two, taking two pilots down to one in a freight situation, or in some cases going from one to none. http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/boeing-start-testing-self-flying-planes-autonomous-aircraft-no-pilot-artificial-intelligence-a7798901.html

Paying with your face

paymainillustration_0 (1)

Facial recognition has existed for decades, but only now is it accurate enough to be used in secure financial transactions. The new versions use deep learning, an artificial-intelligence technique that is especially effective for image recognition because it makes a computer zero in on the facial features that will most reliably identify a person. Technology from Face++ is already being used in several popular apps. It is possible to transfer money through Alipay, a mobile payment app used by more than 120 million people in China, using only your face as credentials. Meanwhile, Didi, China’s dominant ride-hailing company, uses the Face++ software to let passengers confirm that the person behind the wheel is a legitimate driver. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/603494/10-breakthrough-technologies-2017-paying-with-your-face/

A startup that only hires seniors

-ss--s-korea-tech-seniors-general

While people usually assume that seniors are slow or at a loss when it comes to technology EverYoung employs 420 seniors over 55 across Seoul from a range of backgrounds – some were engineers and some had been unemployed for a long time. Their staff display a high level of attention to detail, which is a trait that is not so common in younger employees. Phones are kept away in lockers. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/cnainsider/this-south-korean-tech-start-up-hires-only-seniors-over-55-to-8940876

Singapore Airlines launches biofuel flights

IdeaSpies air fuel

Singapore Airlines has launched the world’s first “green package” flights powered in part by sustainable biofuel produced from used cooking oil. The biofuel will be combined with the usual jet fuel in a series of 12 flights over the next three months on the Airbus A350-900, which the airline company hails as its “most fuel-efficient aircraft”. The 12 biofuel flights will be on the airline’s non-stop Singapore-San Francisco route. http://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-advice/flights/cooking-oil-is-being-used-to-fuel-singapore-airline-flights/news-story/881e857395ac2473300ef6f25e85d7bb?

A solar powered boat in the Amazon

IdeaSpies solar powered boat

This new boat will be used by the Achuar people within their territory of Ecuador and Peru which remains roadless and pristine. Walking and canoes that use gasoline are the main means of transportation for the Achuar. But their territory has a vast network of rivers and tributaries, and plenty of sun, meaning that an environmentally-friendly alternative to the gas boats – which do not reflect the Achuar’s commitment to protect their rainforest home – is now possible. https://www.pachamama.org/news/the-achuar-will-have-a-network-of-boats-and-solar-recharge-stations-in-their-rivers

A new way to buy fashion-from the catwalk

IdeaSpies Myer

Retailer Myer has announced the release of a new online platform with a Tinder-like approach for guests attending Myer fashion parades, allowing them to buy clothes they see on-demand. Guests watching the parades are able to ‘scan’ a model in the parade using their phone camera and view the presented outfits on the mobile platform. You can either add the outfit to the shopping cart, or use Tinder’s swipe-left, swipe-right formula to save items for future purchase. http://www.startupdaily.net/2017/03/myer-creates-catwalk-cart-shopping-platform/
