A lot of people who make over $350,000 are about to get replaced by software

A lot of people who make over $350,000 are about to get replaced by software | environmental aspect | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence is poised to automate lots of service jobs. The White House has estimated there's an 83% chance that someone making less than $20 will eventually lose their job to a computer. That means gigs like customer service rep could soon be extinct.

But it's not just low-paying positions that will get replaced. AI also could cause high earning (like top 5% of American salaries) jobs to disappear.

How sun, salt and glass could help solve our energy needs | environmental aspect | Scoop.it

High in the stark Nevada desert, a couple of hundred miles north-west of Las Vegas, is the shimmering circular mirage of Crescent Dunes. Ten thousand silvery glass panes, each measuring 115 square metres, surround a tall central tower, which stands like a twinkling needle in the featureless landscape around it. Resembling a fabulous alien metropolis, Crescent Dunes is in fact a highly sophisticated, mile-and-a-half-wide solar power plant – “the next generation in solar energy”, according to Kevin Smith, one of the project’s founders.

Energy’s Bright New Future: Think Small

Energy’s Bright New Future: Think Small | environmental aspect | Scoop.it

Dynamic. Open. Fast. Innovative. These are not words we typically associate with the energy industry. But amid the noisy debate between climate change activists and deniers, supporters of fossil fuels and renewables, most have overlooked profound changes that are creating an energy future that is more affordable, resilient, customer-oriented–and cleaner.
Energy is transitioning from large, centralized, monolithic systems that take years to build, last for decades, and seem immune to innovation to smaller, distributed, networked systems that can be built in weeks or months and repurposed as needed.

The world's first solar-powered airport is no longer paying for electricity

The world's first solar-powered airport is no longer paying for electricity | environmental aspect | Scoop.it
Last year, we brought you news of the first airport in the world to run on 100 percent solar energy, and now Cochin International Airport in southern India has hit a major milestone: it's stopped paying for its electricity altogether, and actually contributes energy back to the grid thanks to the tens of thousands of solar panels spread across the site.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, March 19, 2016 11:55 AM
"We wanted to be independent of the electricity utility grid," Jose Thomas, the airport's general manager, told CNNMoney. The airport uses 48,000-50,000 kilowatts of power every day, and the 45 acres of photovoltaic cells installed on the site can now take that strain and then some.There are now plans to extend the solar farm out even further to supply power to the larger international terminal currently under construction. Other major players in the industry are taking note – the large swathes of unused land at most airports make them particularly suitable for projects of this kind. Indian Civil Aviation Minister, Ashok Gajapathi Raju, has visited Cochin and said he wants to use the same approach at other airports in the country, and representatives from Liberia and South Africa have also been to Cochin to check out the solar-powered airport in person.

'Zero-energy' buildings -- which generate as much power as they consume -- are now much closer after a team at Australia's University of New South Wales achieved the world's highest efficiency using flexible solar cells that are non-toxic and cheap to make. Until now, the promise of 'zero-energy' buildings been held back by two hurdles: the cost of the thin-film solar cells (used in façades, roofs and windows), and the fact they're made from scarce, and highly toxic, materials.
