Engineers Have Released Plans for a 5-Km-High Skyscraper That Eats Smog

Engineers Have Released Plans for a 5-Km-High Skyscraper That Eats Smog | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
2017 only just arrived, but one manufacturing company is already looking 45 years into the future.

Arconic, a materials science company, has envisioned a 3-mile-high (4.8-km) skyscraper built from materials that are either in-development or have already been brought to market, including smog-eating surfaces and retractable balconies.

The tower was concocted as part of the company’s larger campaign known as The Jetsons, an homage to the 1962 cartoon set in 2062. Arconic’s engineers worked alongside futurists to imagine the technologies that will be most useful several decades from now.

Sherri McCleary, one of Arconic’s chief materials scientists, says one of the most exciting and immediate projects is EcoClean, a special coating that helps buildings self-clean and purify the surrounding air.

It was first released in 2011 and offers a number of benefits over traditional pane glass windows, McCleary says.

"The functional coating provides aesthetics, it provides maintenance benefits, and it also provides a benefit to the surrounding environment by reducing the content of pollutants around it," she tells Business Insider.

EcoClean works with help from light and water vapour, which mix with the chemicals in the coating to produce atoms known as free radicals.

These free radicals pull in pollutants from the air and break them down to get sloughed off the side of the building along with dirt and grime - almost like dead skin.

I hope this ambitious project "gets off the ground."  Human-cause pollution will eventually kill us if we don't figure out a way to mitigate its damage.  This futuristic skyscraper is just one of many ideas advanced to control the waste that is devastating our planet.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Shelly Kramer because it explains how to find out whether your brand's content has been hijacked.

 

Protect your valuable blog posts from piracy.

 

How to Stop Content Theft

 

As a business it's important to know whether your hard work is being used in an unethical manner. I agree that it's important to find out whether your content is being used in order to preserve your brand reputation.

 

Kramer shows how to gather the right information on your blog posts in order to protect them.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • The Internet makes it easy to steal content in an age of curation. It's okay to do if you get permission and leave an attribution.

 

  • In order to find out whether your articles are being used by someone else you can use some handy tools. Google Alerts and Copyscape are two good ones to start with.

 

  • You can prevent content theft if you are using WordPress with various plugins like Copyright Notice and Yoast SEO. Alternatively you can hire a professional to set up safety measures for you.

EU to debate robot legal rights, mandatory "kill switches"

EU to debate robot legal rights, mandatory "kill switches" | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
A draft report submitted to the European Parliament's legal affairs committee has recommended that robots be equipped with a "kill switch" in order to manage the potential dangers in the evolving field of self-learning autonomous robotics.

The broad-ranging report, recently approved by the legal affairs committee, contains a variety of proposals designed to address possible legal and ethical issues that could arise through the development of autonomous artificial intelligences. These include the establishment of a European Agency for robotics and AI, plus a call for discussing the implementation of a universal basic income as a strategy to address the possible mass unemployment that could result from robotics replacing large portions of the workforce.

In a supreme case of life imitating art, the report opens by referencing Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and later suggests Issac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics as a general principle that designers and producers of robotics should abide by.

Issues of identifying legal liability in regards to the potential harmful actions of robots are prominently discussed in the report. As robots develop cognitive abilities that give them the ability to learn from experience and make independent decisions, the question of legal responsibility becomes an urgent one to address. The report asks how a robot could be held responsible for its actions, and at what point that responsibility falls on either the manufacturer, owner or user.

Interestingly, a proportionate scale of responsibility is proposed that takes into account the capacity of a robot's self-learning abilities. The report states,

"the greater a robot's learning capability or autonomy is, the lower other parties' responsibility should be, and the longer a robot's 'education' has lasted, the greater the responsibility of its 'teacher' should be."

prgnewshawaii's curator insight, January 16, 4:43 PM

The union of science fiction and science fact is upon us.  The wonders and cautions described by Isaac Asimov in a series of novels ("I,Robot" among them) are soon to become a part of our daily lives.  The potential dangers and opportunities afforded by self-learning autonomous robots are now so serious that the European Union is debating robot legal rights and the use of mandatory "kill switches" to stop robots from displacing humans. Be careful what you wish for.  The singularity is sitting next to us.


Are we prepared for how our lives will forever change?  I don't think so.
