Youth panel launched to give pupils a voice on education technology - Telegraph | Marketing your technologies around the world | Scoop.it

Systemex: la borne électrique d'abord, le chauffe-eau ensuite | Martin Primeau | PME | Marketing your technologies around the world | Scoop.it

Pas simple pour la PME de se faire connaître des grands décideurs de la planète ; ce l'est d'autant moins lorsqu'elle a une innovation à leur présenter.

Ronald Bannon MBA, C.Adm., FCMC, International Senior Trade Advisor's insight:

Comme l'offre électrique est appelée à fluctuer plus qu'avant, il faudrait que la demande, elle, soit plus souple. C'est pour répondre à ce besoin que Systemex a conçu une technologie appelée SOFT-R3. Celle-ci prend la forme d'une simple carte électronique. Une fois greffé à un appareil électrique comme un chauffe-eau, un air conditionné ou une borne de recharge électrique, le dispositif module la consommation électrique de l'appareil en fonction de la fréquence électrique du réseau.

Le plafond des frais de « roaming » va être abaissé au 30 avril, avant leur disparition le 15 juin 2017.

A partir de cette date, l’utilisation de son téléphone dans l’Union européenne ne coûtera pas un centime de plus que ce que prévoit votre forfait.

La mesure de surmamortissement de 140 % est prolongée d'un an jusqu'en avril 2017. Mais, surtout, elle est étendue aux réseaux utilisant la fibre optique et aux serveurs informatiques.
 
Ronald Bannon MBA, C.Adm., FCMC, International Senior Trade Advisor's insight:

Le ministre des Finances y était dans un premier temps peu favorable, celui de l'Economie, à l'inverse, plaidait pour sa reconduction... Matignon a tranché il y a quelques semaines, la mesure temporaire de suramortissement de 140 % sera donc prolongée d'un an jusqu'au 14 avril 2017, alors qu'elle devait prendre fin le 14 avril 2016 un an après son institution.

Ronald Bannon MBA, C.Adm., FCMC, International Senior Trade Advisor's insight:

Doit-on toujours se plier à ce que les autres nous disent de faire ? Bien sûr que non. Tout le monde sait ça. Du coup, les robots du futur doivent-ils toujours obéir à nos ordres ?

A slowdown in productivity revives the old debate about the relative merits of manufacturing and services
Ronald Bannon MBA, C.Adm., FCMC, International Senior Trade Advisor's insight:

ONE of the economic mysteries of recent years is why productivity gains have been so slow. It is a big issue for the developed world since, with workforces likely to stagnate or shrink as the baby boomers retire, productivity will have to do all the work of generating economic growth. The pessimists, led by Robert Gordon, argue that modern technology, like the iPhone, is nothing like as transformative as late 19th and 20th century innovations such as electrification or the car.

Adding silicon-sulfur into 3D graphene makes for game-changing battery potential

Adding silicon-sulfur into 3D graphene makes for game-changing battery potential | Marketing your technologies around the world | Scoop.it
Researchers in China believe they’re cracked the code on the elusive lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery. Using three-dimensional (3D) graphene, the Beihang University researchers structured Li-S in such a way that they show high, real-world potential on both the cathode and anode sides.
Ronald Bannon MBA, C.Adm., FCMC, International Senior Trade Advisor's insight:

Chemists have long known that lithium-sulfur has huge potential as a next-generation battery solution, combining the strengths of a fuel cell (very energy dense) with the strengths of a battery (self-contained energy storage) – all in a package that is extremely environmentally-friendly and that has a low cost of manufacture.
