Scientists have discovered a new state of matter, called 'Jahn-Teller metals'

Scientists have discovered a new state of matter, called 'Jahn-Teller metals' | Ideas from and for MAKERS | Scoop.it

An international team of scientists has announced the discovery of a new state of matter in a material that appears to be an insulator, superconductor, metal and magnet all rolled into one, saying that it could lead to the development of more effective high-temperature superconductors.


Why is this so exciting? Well, if these properties are confirmed, this new state of matter will allow scientists to better understand why some materials have the potential to achieve superconductivity at a relativity high critical temperature (Tc) - "high" as in −135 °C as opposed to −243.2 °C. Because superconductivity allows a material to conduct electricity without resistance, which means no heat, sound, or any other form of energy release, achieving this would revolutionise how we use and produce energy, but it’s only feasible if we can achieve it at so-called high temperatures.


As Michael Byrne explains, when we talk about states of matter, it’s not just solids, liquids, gases, and maybe plasmas that we have to think about. We also have to consider the more obscure states that don’t occur in nature, but are rather created in the lab - Bose–Einstein condensate, degenerate matter, supersolids and superfluids, and quark-gluon plasma, for example. 


By introducing rubidium into carbon-60 molecules - more commonly known as 'buckyballs' - a team led by chemist Kosmas Prassides from Tokohu University in Japan was able to change the distance between them, which forced them into a new, crystalline structure. When put through an array of tests, this structure displayed a combination of insulating, superconducting, metallic, and magnetic phases, including a brand new one, which the researchers have named 'Jahn-Teller metals'. 


Named after the Jahn-Teller effect, which is used in chemistry to describe how at low pressures, the geometric arrangement of molecules and ions in an electronic state can become distorted, this new state of matter allows scientists to transform an insulator - which can’t conduct electricity - into a conductor by simply applying pressure.


There’s a whole lot of lab-work to be done before this discovery will mean anything for practical energy production in the real world, but that’s science for you. And it’s got people excited already, as chemist Elisabeth Nicol from the University of Guelph in Canada told Hamish Johnston at PhysicsWorld: "Understanding the mechanisms at play and how they can be manipulated to change the Tc surely will inspire the development of new superconducting materials".

Japan Wants To Turn The Moon Into A Giant Power Plant - StumbleUpon

Japan Wants To Turn The Moon Into A Giant Power Plant - StumbleUpon | Ideas from and for MAKERS | Scoop.it
Victor Jimenez's insight:

Plausible or Not Plausible?


I have no idea if the Shimizu Corp actually is tossing this around or not, but would it not be great if they were? (regardless of if it happens or not, I think ideas like this are useful and critical for all people to thrive)

 

It never occurred to me to place our solar panels outside of earth, so would this work? Actually, how does the captured energy get back to earth so we can use it? Lasers and Microwave transmission...hmm. 

I am sure there would be a way to do this (of course any cost control or practicality is going out the window), but I cannot shake the feeling that we would be building our own DeathStar.


Still, I see this as more plausible than mass-colonization of the moon. Sending robot construction crews up to build and maintain these power plants would be costly, but perhaps it would be less costly than maintaining human life on the moon to do all the work.


Anyways, I love sci-fi ideas like this that get you wondering....what-if?

Victor Jimenez's insight:

This article by Mark Stephen Meadows provides an interesting look at the next stage of challenges in designing better ways for humans and machines to communicate. Sci-fi fans who are interested in the future of Artificial Intelligence may want to read more about Mr. Meadow’s insights. I’ve found the topic to provide great inspiration for ideas on what the future may hold and perhaps, how we should approach design of this technology. Check this article out and see where your mind takes you!

 

My own mind trail took me back to the design of language processing for an artificial system…

 

Per Wikipedia, Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a field of computer science, artificial intelligence, and linguistics concerned with the interactions between computers and human (natural) languages. The intent of NLP seems to be to find a better way for computers to understand human, natural language inputs.

 

To enhance knowledge management systems in organizations, I’ve been looking into the importance of language use strategy to enhance communication. While there is much to review on this topic, I’ve settled on beginning with effective communication through word choices among teams. This influences the design of IT systems which support those teams.

 

Some of my own novice level writings on this subject covered the following,

“A controlled vocabulary (CV) deserves attention from data administrators in any operational environment since a CV is essential to perform the search and retrieval activities required of effective communication and knowledge transfer. This is especially true among human-to-machine communication where at least one side of an exchange (for now I say it is only the human side) must apply their own tacit knowledge of the subject to choose terms for searching and for qualifying a search result. The effectiveness of these exchanges depends on the degree of similarity in the choice of term made by the indexer and the choice forwarded by the searcher. A CV is an effective method of improving the similarities of indexer and searcher choices, thereby enhancing communication.”

 

One (among many) difficulty in designing a vocabulary for machines to use when communicating with humans via natural language would be: Keeping the language relevant. A CV must reflect all the world views of it’s users for the time in which it is to be used. Now, given that people’s views on ANY given subject are constantly changing; design teams must continually update CVs to maintain their usefulness

Victor Jimenez's insight:

If you have not heard the term ‘Augmented Reality’ or ‘AR’ by now, you may want to take notice.

 

If you are an American football fan, then you already know what AR is … and you probably love it!

 

Most science fiction fans already dream of these interfaces and future technologies. And many also know it is closer than you would think.

 

I think AR has great promise for advertising and the entertainment industry in general. As with many new tech ideas, I think the video game industry will be the first to see it widespread implementation to great success. But a point of this article which is worth remembering is that AR should not be considered just a gimmick, nor should it be adopted and treated like a new strategy. AR is a tool or a tactic. It does not form a strategy in and of itself. Treat it as a strategy and it will fade like a gimmick. Use it as a tool and it will embed itself in the next generation of your product release. It will be a good addition and useful differentiator that attracts followers to your brand and appeal to techies.

 

For an entertaining movie with an AR spin, checkout Branded (also known as The Mad Cow and Moscow 2017 (Москва 2017 in Russian)) is a 2012 Russian–American science fiction film written and directed by Jamie Bradshaw and Aleksandr Dulerayn.

How might drivers see around blind spots?

Victor Jimenez's insight:

Wearable technology will allow us to be connected more throughout the day. Putting the security discussion aside....a great benefit to being "on" all day is we can have more data being collected about our usage of tech. This feedback will allow us to tailor our apps to support greater usage of knowledge resources in daily repetitive tasks. What will be important is how we each qualify the apps and tools and the quality of the knowledge stores we draw upon. So many possibilities, it is exciting to think about!

The Brain Is Not Computable: Why Singularity Will Not Happen and Humans Will Assimilate Machines

The Brain Is Not Computable: Why Singularity Will Not Happen and Humans Will Assimilate Machines | Ideas from and for MAKERS | Scoop.it
A leading neuroscientist says Kurzweil’s Singularity isn’t going to happen. Instead, humans will assimilate machines.

 

Miguel Nicolelis, a top neuroscientist at Duke University, says computers will never replicate the human brain and that the technological Singularity is “a bunch of hot air.”

 

“The brain is not computable and no engineering can reproduce it,” says Nicolelis, author of several pioneering papers on brain-machine interfaces.

 

The Singularity, of course, is that moment when a computer super-intelligence emerges and changes the world in ways beyond our comprehension.

 

Among the idea’s promoters are futurist Ray Kurzweil, recently hired on at Google as a director of engineering, who has been predicting that not only will machine intelligence exceed our own, but people will be able to download their thoughts and memories into computers (see “Ray Kurzweil Plans to Create a Mind at Google—and Have It Serve You”). 

 

Nicolelis calls that idea sheer bunk. “Downloads will never happen,” he said during remarks made at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston on Sunday. “There are a lot of people selling the idea that you can mimic the brain with a computer.”

 

The debate over whether the brain is a kind of computer has been running for decades. Many scientists think it’s possible, in theory, for a computer to equal the brain given sufficient computer power and an understanding of how the brain works.

 

Kurzweil delves into the idea of “reverse-engineering” the brain in his latest book, How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed, in which he says even though the brain may be immensely complex, “the fact that it contains many billions of cells and trillions of connections does not necessarily make its primary method complex.”

 

But Nicolelis is in a camp that thinks that human consciousness (and if you believe in it, the soul) simply can’t be replicated in silicon. That’s because its most important features are the result of unpredictable, nonlinear interactions among billions of cells, Nicolelis says.

 

“You can’t predict whether the stock market will go up or down because you can’t compute it,” he says. “You could have all the computer chips ever in the world and you won’t create a consciousness.”

 

The neuroscientist, originally from Brazil, instead thinks that humans will increasingly subsume machines (an idea, incidentally, that’s also part of Kurzweil’s predictions).

 

In a study published last week, for instance, Nicolelis’s group at Duke used brain implants to allow mice to sense infrared light, something mammals can’t normally perceive. They did it by wiring a head-mounted infrared sensor to electrodes implanted into a part of the brain called the somatosensory cortex.

 

The experiment, in which several mice were able to follow sensory cues from the infrared detector to obtain a reward, was the first ever to use a neural implant to add a new sense to an animal, Nicolelis says.

Bernhard H. Schmitz's comment, July 16, 2014 2:33 PM
I agree that too many people think it would be sufficient to plug a bunch of neurons together and consciousness will happen. Ridiculous. But I am convinced that it is not necessary to simulate a brain or reverse engineer it. Brains are developed by random incidents and evolution - and it's a mess. I am strongly convinced that a conscious mechanism will be developed from scratch. And it will outwit us.

FCC Chair Wheeler faces House committee over net neutrality draft | Ideas from and for MAKERS | Scoop.it
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler defended his approach to new rules meant to protect the openness of the Internet against a skeptical congressional committee Tuesday.
Victor Jimenez's insight:

I see this as a slippery slope, no matter what comparisons we throw out there which may seem to make sense when we talk about them as metaphors (such as comparing to public utilities like water and electricity).

 

The bottom line of my belief that this pay-to-play structure is a bad idea is...

 

1.  The demand from businesses for faster internet service is out there.

2.  Businesses have more resources than do individuals and families.

3.  ISPs have a limited resource in the amount of bandwidth that can be provided.

 

So if we make a way that business can buy more on a limited resource when demand is high, we eventually put the ISPs (sellers) in a position where they will have to choose whether to make their next sale to someone paying a higher price and someone paying a lower price. So who do you think will get the sale? Eventually, service will degrade for individuals and the gap between residential service and business class will expand.

 

I think more reading on this topic is needed by everyone. It is an issue that will affect us all. Choose wisely...

Wearables and the Internet of Things (IoT) may give the impression that it’s all about the sensors, hardware, communication middleware, network and data but the real value (and company valuation) is in insights.

Via Tictrac
Victor Jimenez's insight:

Cyberpunk 2020: A role playing game (RPG), I enjoyed with friends in the early 1990’s, that explored the “what-ifs” related to a future world where technology was not just part of society, but was part of the human condition, part of the typical person’s body itself. What-if you could have a data chip in your head to apply memory and learn skills (think Neo from the matrix)? What if you could replace limbs and other body parts with machine parts that fit seamlessly with your own body and functioned better, faster, stronger? Then, the fun part of the game, what-if body implants (or replacements) were so commonplace that most everyone had one (or multiple)? How would society be different? How would life be different? How would the valuation on life or “human-ness” be different?

 

These are the typical science fiction fan musings and which led me to my fascination with Artificial Intelligence (AI). The possibilities of what-if are being applied here and talked about endlessly in the social spaces of today’s creative technology labs, universities, and of course online.

 

What-if, we get so good at making “smart” technologies that one day the pace of change and learning that the inventions can perform outpaces our own? You do not have to look far for good discussion on this topic. If, like me, you want more on the subject, I suggest your first stop to be referencing Ray Kurzweil. For a good list of publications by Mr. Kurzweil checkout: http://www.kurzweilai.net/books/books-by-ray-kurzweil

 

Wired Magazine’s article, Wearing Your Intelligence: How to Apply Artificial Intelligence in Wearables and IoT by Scott Amyx provides many ideas to start a creative mind thinking on the future of AI. Check it out for a solid foundation of terms, contrasting opinions by thought leaders, and applications of AI for our future. If you are like me, you will enjoy the read and perhaps also the reminder of the reasons why you became interested in science fiction in the first place.

Victor Jimenez's insight:

If only...

If only we could try to find the value in any idea that someone shared with us instead of automatically applying a yes/no classification to it...
If only we could fund a project, then give the project team an honest and final deadline that does not hedge for risk and move up the delivery of an output so that the project planner has time to waste if things go wrong...
If only we could just ask someone to do something, they agree, then we leave the issue alone unless help is requested instead of constantly checking in for status...
If only we could trust others to be as responsible with something you care about as they would be with something they care about...
If only we could not take every comment that we overhear someone say as being personally directed at ourselves or offensive when we do not have the full meaning or context in which they said it...
If only we valued those who dedicated their life to enabling or spreading knowledge to others so that people have the ability to make good decisions for themselves (teachers and educators) as much as we valued those who tell us only what we want to hear, when we want to hear it (politicians or mass marketers)...
If only we could do these things without worrying how we think each decision we make will put us either ahead of or behind someone else...

If only we could step outside ourselves to allow real creativity to happen...
If only then... what do you think we could make happen?
