The first automated, crewless ship is expected to set sail next year. The Norwegian-built Yara Birkeland is expected to lower operating costs by 90% and be zero admission. Dubbed the Tesla of the seas, the 1,000-container vehicle is expected to launch with a small crew, move to remote operation in 2019, and then transition to fully autonomous by 2020. https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/24/16018652/first-autonomous-ship-launch-2018?

A wearable that helps you with EQ

IMG_1930

The tone of a conversation can drastically affect its emotional intent – conveying sadness, aggression or happiness through nuanced changes in pitch and intonation. While many of us may pick these up naturally throughout life, some people find this particularly difficult. An AI with the ability to navigate through nuanced social cues could lead to an improvement in the quality of life for these people. This can already be done with a Samsung Simband, a wearable device which collects and displays this information. http://www.wired.co.uk/article/mits-artificial-intelligence-could-solve-social-miscommunication

Food from Electricity? Shocking new way to deal with world hunger.

electric food spoon

A Finnish research team has taken a step towards the future of food by developing a method for producing food from electricity. If scaling it up proves to be successful, it could help in the fight against world hunger and climate change. The researchers created a batch of single-cell protein that is nutritious enough to serve for dinner using a system powered by renewable energy. The process requires electricity, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes. After exposing the raw materials to electrolysis in a bioreactor, a powder forms consisting of protein and carbohydrates. Textures can also be changed by altering microbes. https://futurism.com/a-team-of-scientists-just-made-food-from-electricity-and-it-could-be-the-solution-to-world-hunger/

Batteries that last indefinitely to track wildlife

z9p8d7n6-1499916872

Self-sustaining batteries are needed for activities that use sensors. These include long-term tracking of wildlife.  CSIRO software aims to help devices operate in an energy-neutral way, so that the battery can last indefinitely or until its recharge cycles are exhausted. An example is a device attached to animals using collars that collects GPS data to understand their movements. It also has a tiny battery and solar panel to recharge each day. https://blog.csiro.au/make-batteries-last-almost-forever/

Turning plants into batteries and house lamps.

living-light-796x467

Imagine a lamp. Any lamp. Now imagine having to water it. Dutch product designer Ermi van Oers created Living Light: plants that double as lights. Or lights that double as plants – whichever way you prefer looking at it. The lights run on electricity generated by bacteria in the soil. Healthier plants produce more energy. If you take care of it properly, the Living Light will produce up to 0.1 mW. Enough to use it as a night lamp, but not sufficient to properly light a room. Imagine if we could use boulevard trees for powering street lights?

Combinations of human and machine outperform either working alone

IMG_1914

AGCO’s executives think the new version of Google Glass helps tamp down suspicions that they are replacing workers with robots that does their job better. They say they’re helping them do their job better. For tasks they have mastered, workers don’t need to look at the Glass screen. But they can wake it at any time to see where a part must go, and even zoom into an object on the display for more detail. Glass tells them, for example, what kind of bolt is needed—a wrong-sized bolt could seriously damage a motor—and specifies which wrench to use and how much torque is required. https://www.wired.com/story/google-glass-2-is-here/
