Sec­ond­Hands A.I. (machine learn­ing)

From : Wired​.com

An ambi­tious robot­ics project that com­bines arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, machine learn­ing and advanced sen­sors to under­stand and assist humans in real time could be truly “rev­o­lu­tion­ary”, accord­ing to the team work­ing on it. The Sec­ond­Hands humanoid, being devel­oped for online super­mar­ket Ocado, could soon be help­ing fac­tory engi­neers fix mechan­i­cal faults and even learn on the job.

The robot will be com­pletely autonomous and should be able to help with every­thing from fetch­ing tools to hold­ing objects and even assist­ing with clean­ing and engi­neer­ing tasks. The project is a col­lab­o­ra­tion between the tech­nol­ogy arm of the online super­mar­ket and four uni­ver­si­ties across the Euro­pean Union. The robot­ics team at Ocado Tech­nol­ogy believe it could become “the most advanced assis­tive robot in the world”.

Game Changer ?

From SHTF​plan​.com

The world of self defense is about to change dra­mat­i­cally. Where today some­one has the abil­ity to pro­tect them­selves from per­per­tra­tors car­ry­ing a firearm or knife, we now sit on the cusp of the future of per­sonal defense weapons sys­tems. Laser tech­nol­ogy has been around for quite some time, but in terms of destruc­tive power has been pretty much restricted to the mil­i­tary realm.

All of that has now changed, as demon­strated by a young do-​it-​yourselfer going by the Youtube moniker sty­ropyro who recently built a pow­er­ful laser device in his garage. Dan­ger­ous is an under­state­ment for this thing. There’s no, no good rea­son for any­body to own some­thing this pow­er­ful. But because it wasn’t ille­gal for me to build, I decided to build it anyway.

NASA’s Warn­ing !

NASA’s warn­ing of a poten­tial Solar Armaged­don that knocks out power grids across the globe

Per­haps, as a tech-​savvy cit­i­zen, you are wor­ried about the finan­cial cost of data breaches, or our increased vul­ner­a­bil­ity to ter­ror­ist hack­ers, or the ero­sion of our dig­i­tal civil lib­er­ties. Don’t be. Instead, worry about the com­plete col­lapse of our power grid. NASA is warn­ing that there’s a 12 per­cent chance an extreme solar storm will hit Earth in the next decade, send­ing out mas­sive shock waves that would knock out grids across the world. The eco­nomic impact of this dooms­day sce­nario could exceed $2 tril­lion — or 20 times the cost of Hur­ri­cane Kat­rina, accord­ing to the National Acad­emy of Sci­ences. NASA first made this warn­ing in 2009, when a study it funded detailed what might hap­pen to our high-​tech soci­ety in the event of a super solar flare — essen­tially the equiv­a­lent of bad space weather. An extreme geo­mag­netic storm would fol­low, melt­ing cop­per wind­ings of trans­form­ers at the heart of many power dis­tri­b­u­tion centers.

What are Solarstorms?

Solar Storms: Some­times the most beau­ti­ful nat­ural phe­nom­ena can have dev­as­tat­ing con­se­quences. When the sun ejects hot charged par­ti­cles into space, the North­ern Lights are cre­ated here on Earth. Occa­sion­ally the sun erupts with huge quan­ti­ties of par­ti­cles (Coro­nal Mass Ejec­tion) that can dam­age the earth’s elec­tric sys­tems. Renowned author Mat Stein and Arnie Gun­der­sen dis­cuss the dan­gers of a large coro­nal mass ejec­tion on the elec­tri­cal grid and on nuclear plants world­wide. — See more at: http://​www​.fairewinds​.org/​s​o​l​a​r​s​t​o​r​m​s…
