Kurzweil : "A supercomputer to map the cosmos

Kurzweil : "A supercomputer to map the cosmos | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

 

 

A new petascale supercomputer built to study the universe is one of the fastest calculating machines in the world, and certainly the fastest of its kind. The supercomputer is part of ALMA, a new radio telescope that is claimed to be “largest ground-based astronomical project in existence”. The ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) radio telescope is a collection of 66 high-precision antennas…

Kurzweil : "Rahul Sarpeshkar & Timothy Lu, from MIT | Cells as living calculators | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

By combining existing genetic "parts" or engineered genes, in novel ways, two MIT engineers have transformed bacterial cells into living calculators that can compute logarithms, divide, and take square roots, using three or fewer genetic parts.

The circuits perform those calculations in an analog fashion by exploiting natural biochemical functions that are already present in the cell rather than by reinventing them with digital logic. This makes them more efficient than the digital circuits pursued by most synthetic biologists, according to MIT engineers Rahul Sarpeshkar and Timothy Lu…

Kurzweil : Reducing the cost of solar power with mobile ROBOTS

Kurzweil : Reducing the cost of solar power with mobile ROBOTS | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it


QBotix has developed a dual-axis tracking system that uses rugged, intelligent mobile robots to dynamically operate solar power plants and maximize energy output.

The QBotix Tracking System increases energy production of ground-mounted solar power plants by up to 40 percent over existing fixed mount systems and lowers the Levelized Cost of Electricity by up to 20 percent, the company claims.

QTS utilizes a pair of autonomous robots, one primary and one back-up, to control 300 kW of solar panels with high accuracy and reliability…
