How We'll 3D-Print The Internet Of Things

How We'll 3D-Print The Internet Of Things | smart cities | Scoop.it

The Internet of Things promises that every object will eventualy be hooked up to a network. And 3D printing promises that any object we can imagine, we can build—on site and on demand. And big data promises we'll know everything there is to know about these networked objects.

What happens when you put those innovations together?

Ray Kurzweil's Mind-Boggling Predictions for the Next 25 Years

Ray Kurzweil's Mind-Boggling Predictions for the Next 25 Years | smart cities | Scoop.it

Ray Kurzweil is the principal inventor of many technologies ranging from the first CCD flatbed scanner to the first print-to-speech reading machine for the blind. He is also the chancellor and co-founder of Singularity University, and the guy tagged by Larry Page to direct artificial intelligence development at Google.

An article about one of the world's most renowned and qualified futurists, Ray Kurzweil, and his predictions regarding the exponential growth of computing in the next 25 years.

"I want to make an important point.

It’s not about the predictions.

It’s about what the predictions represent."

The theory of spiral dynamics Dr. Don Beck says that humanity lives today to speak with my words in "different times", so to some impressive advances in the science and technology are not very significant, while the more advanced, more aware, people dealing analyze both the positive aspects of science and technology, and the possible dangers to them the question needs to be controlled artificial intelligence? It makes perfect sense.

Dr. Michael Yao's curator insight, December 17, 2013 10:11 AM

Indeed I had argue in my works (also discussed here: http://www.linkedin.com/groupItem?type=member&trk=groups_most_popular-0-b-ttl&gid=37945&view=&qid=b9602a17-705f-4827-8993-ec0761b852e8&goback=%2Egmp_37945&item=5812292805464203266)  on Artificial Consciousness that the process which led to intelligence was more than simply computational and dependant on a configuration which brought about consciousness. Because either one is capable of solving problems successfully or not, does not imply that one is intelligent or capable of thinking, such as a machine which can almost always outperform a human given a specific task, yet is not intelligent, althought the human is. 

 It is therefore mandatory for us to not look at common human cognitive errors as simply erronous but as actually footprints in our understanding of the human brain and its processing. Looking at consciousness as the fundamental building blocks for intelligence, and an empirical science of problem solving dynamics, are definitely particulates this neurological research is seeking to achieve which confirm Don Sigma Corp.'s  particulates on the works ;)

Tri Tran's curator insight, March 27, 4:23 AM

"Author of the paper, Gary Lupyan Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Wisconsin, USA, argues that the reason people mistake 798 to be an odd number is that—even though they know that only the last digit matters, they can’t help but also process the other digits, which in this case are odd. This makes the whole number—798—seem “almost” odd, and to some people, actually odd. Such gradedness and context dependence demonstrates just how difficult it is for some people to following strict rules and definitions."
No matter how "smart" and knowledgeable the human race gets, we will almost make mistakes, human error that is. Although it might seem like a cognitive thinking is just identifying something through following a set of rules (so does a computer) there are other biases that comes into play with the human brain.

Researchers Create a No-Power Internet of Things

Researchers Create a No-Power Internet of Things | smart cities | Scoop.it

No-power Wi-Fi connectivity could fuel Internet of Things reality

Researchers at the University of Washington have devised a way for battery-free devices to skim a connective link from errant WiFi signals, potentially increasing the reach of the Internet of Things to include just about any thing. The new tool, called a backscatter, looks like a thin plate of metal that works by "looking" for WiFi signals moving between the router and a laptop or smartphone.

They encode data by either reflecting or not reflecting the Wi-Fi router’s signals, slightly changing the wireless signal. Wi-Fi-enabled devices like laptops and smartphones would detect these minute changes and receive data from the tag. In this way, your [battery-free] smart watch could download emails or offload your workout data onto a Google spreadsheet.

Machines aren’t used because they perform some tasks that much better than humans, but because, in many cases, they do a “good enough” job while also being cheaper, more predictable and easier to control than quirky, pesky humans. Technology in the workplace is as much about power and control as it is about productivity and efficiency.

Five bold prediction about how the advancement of computing technology and AI will have an effect on the things we do in the next five years.

 

Education, Commerce, Health, Online Security and Smart City are covered in this prediction. It is presented that will bring in new possibilities and opportunities by leveling the playing field in the commerce sector and and improve the lives of millions through advances in the medical sector. Education,  online security and smart city are also predicted to usher in a new era of sustainable, secure and more mature

Matt B's curator insight, March 27, 3:45 AM

IBM's take on the top 5 innovations of the next 5 years. IBM's focus seems to be AI: in the classroom tailoring an individual curriculum for each student, watching over you online as literal 'Smart Security' software, and in learning systems in cities to organise logistics, communications etc.

Tri Tran's curator insight, March 27, 4:17 AM

The five predictions of IBM about the future are:

Personalized Learning - Our current education system is a generalized curriculum for all students, but what if the students have different learning speed, different ways of learning such as visual learning or learning through practices, the classroom might not provide these methods for each students therefor not all student can learn at the same rate. With personalized learning, cloud computing will study you and your methods of learning, it will help you personalized your curriculum and helps you learn what you need to and what you want to learn in a way that benefits you.

Shopping: With augmented reality devices that are in development for the future, shopping online will be able to provide you with the same experience as shopping in a local store. It can even provide you with specific sizes, favorite, color, favorite style you want, all you have to do is input your detail into whatever artificial intelligence device that will be available in the future.
 

Personalized cancer treatment: Doctors will be able to treat cancer down to the DNA level, cloud based cognitive systems will be able to sequence the DNA of a cancer patient within a day and become a standard level of care. Not only with cancer, this system can also provide and sequence DNA-specific treatments for other medical conditions such as stroke and heart diseases.

Digital security: Through powerful cloud based analytic, a security system will be able to recognize you inside and out, protecting you 24/7 from identity fraud. For example, this personalized security system will know that you would usually wait for your gas tank to be almost empty before filling it up, and you are a vegetarian, so if someone were to buy a hot-dog (meat-based food) and fills up a tank when it is only halfway, the system would inform you and take action to prevent you from any harm. Security has evolved from a rule-based system such as passwords to being automatic and based on who we are.

Future cities: cities has rules, and it requires the people in it to follow them. For example, a bus would only come once every hour, therefor if you want to go somewhere you would have to follow the rule and wait for the bus at that exact time, through cloud based computing and analytic, more buses might dispatch to match the needs of more people.

Stanford scientists create a smart lithium-ion battery that warns of potential fire hazards

Stanford University scientists have developed a 'smart' lithium-ion battery that gives ample warning before it overheats and bursts into flames. The new technology is designed for conventional lithium-ion batteries now used in billions of cellphones, laptops and other electronic devices, as well as a growing number of cars and airplanes.

The early-warning technology can also be used in zinc, aluminum and other metal batteries. “It will work in any battery that would require you to detect a short before it explodes,” Cui said.
