Google Introduces Plan to Use Generative AI to Take Over the Internet – AI’s Real Threat to Society

Google Introduces Plan to Use Generative AI to Take Over the Internet – AI’s Real Threat to Society | Cool Future Technologies |

Let's talk about information technology for a moment and look at its potential for misuse. Google is a great example of that. 


"Google announced its new plans for AI this week at their annual I/O developer conference, and to say that not everyone in the Tech Industry was thrilled by their plans to integrate Generative AI into their search engine, would be an understatement. Emily Dreibelbis, writing for PC Magazine, published one of the more apocalyptic articles warning that Google could basically destroy most websites on the Internet. Maggie Harrison, writing for Futurism, issued similar warnings for the future of independent journalism due to Google's plan for Generative AI, noting that Google still owns 91% of all Internet searches. This is one of the REAL dangers of AI, the fact that the largest technology companies that control the Internet could very easily drive everyone else out of business and thereby control all the content on the Internet.


And in fact, that trend has already started in the technology sector, as year-to-date there have already been 193,860 employees laid off in the technology sector, with many tech businesses failing, as well as some of their top banks also failing, like Silicon Valley Bank, that funded these companies. This investment in the future of AI, is the main thing holding up the U.S. stock market right now. Five technology stocks, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Meta and Amazon, have accounted for 89% of the S&P 500 YTD price return. It is looking more and more every day that we are looking at a total market collapse at some point, and then only the largest banks and the largest technology companies will be left, because they are "too big to fail," especially since the U.S. military and their Intelligence agencies all depend on Big Tech, who hold all their data in their Cloud Computing data centers.


This appears to be the goal of the Wall Street billionaires and their bankers, since there is no way they can pay off their debts. Just crash the entire financial system, and choose which Tech companies and banks survive. Then they will have total control of the flow of money as they require digital IDs and work towards a Central Bank Digital Currency, operated by the Big Tech companies that survive, who will also control the flow of information through AI. Will enough Americans wake up soon enough to prevent this from happening, or will it take a total collapse of the economy to reveal what is really happening with this "Great Reset"?

China to produce clean energy with nuclear fusion by 2028, top weapons expert claims

China to produce clean energy with nuclear fusion by 2028, top weapons expert claims | Cool Future Technologies |

China aspires to produce unlimited clean energy through nuclear fusion by 2028, claims China's top nuclear weapons expert. 


The "world's largest" pulsed-power plant will be built in Chengdu, Sichuan province, according to Professor Peng Xianjue of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics, The Independent reported on Wednesday. 


"Fusion ignition is the jewel in the crown of science and technology in today's world," said Professor Peng. 


"Being the world's first to achieve energy-scale fusion release will lay the most important milestone in the road to fusion energy for human beings." 


The finest outcome so far achieved by Chinese scientists utilizing an “artificial sun” is a reaction running at a slightly cooler 70 million degrees celsius for more than 17 minutes. 


The Z-pinch machine, which imitates a thermonuclear bomb's fusion process through enormous electric pulses, will be used in the Chinese power plant.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

China is pushing ahead with fusion energy, and it seems they may be ahead of other contendents with this technology. This is the kind of technology that could help get us off hydrocarbons as fuel. Don't wait for it though. Fusion energy has been "around the corner" for decades now. May this be the good one.

Generating hydrogen fuel from the very air we breathe

Generating hydrogen fuel from the very air we breathe | Cool Future Technologies |

Researchers have created an electrolyser that can draw on the water in the air and turn it into hydrogen fuel and oxygen.


Green hydrogen, made from water electrolysis, has great potential to store and transport renewable energy. But the process to make it requires water, and many of the places with the highest potential for solar energy are very dry. 


The device, called the Direct Air Electrolysis (DAE) module, is made from a porous, sponge-like substance with electrodes at either end. The sponge is “hygroscopic”: it absorbs moisture from the ambient air.


“It’s actually a completely new concept, because previous electrolysers for hydrogen production from water have needed to be a closed system,” says Li. 


“Our system is different: we have a semi-open electrolyser, so we only have the top and bottom electrode closed, but the four sides of that electrolyser are open to the air. 


“It means the moisture from the air can transfer into the hygroscopic electrolyte automatically, or spontaneously, without consuming energy. So we don’t need extra energy to extract this water.”

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Hydrogen is a gas that can be used to heat and to cleanly drive all kinds of machinery including motors and turbines. If made by electrolysis using renewable energy such as solar or wind, it is called 'green hydrogen'. Here is a new way of making the stuff.

Tapping into the million-year energy source below our feet

Tapping into the million-year energy source below our feet | Cool Future Technologies |

MIT spinout Quaise Energy is working to create geothermal wells made from the world’s deepest holes in order to repurpose coal and gas plants. 


There’s an abandoned coal power plant in upstate New York that most people regard as a useless relic. But MIT’s Paul Woskov sees things differently. 


Woskov, a research engineer in MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center, notes the plant’s power turbine is still intact and the transmission lines still run to the grid. Using an approach he’s been working on for the last 14 years, he’s hoping it will be back online, completely carbon-free, within the decade. 


In fact, Quaise Energy, the company commercializing Woskov’s work, believes if it can retrofit one power plant, the same process will work on virtually every coal and gas power plant in the world. 


Quaise is hoping to accomplish those lofty goals by tapping into the energy source below our feet. The company plans to vaporize enough rock to create the world’s deepest holes and harvest geothermal energy at a scale that could satisfy human energy consumption for millions of years. They haven’t yet solved all the related engineering challenges, but Quaise’s founders have set an ambitious timeline to begin harvesting energy from a pilot well by 2026.

Converting a gasoline engine into a water engine

Today we are going to teach you how to convert a gasoline engine to run on water, that is, an engine with water as fuel. The hydrogen engine that runs on water is a chimera that has been said to be impossible for decades, but we have access to confidential and secret information, and we have discovered the compound HH+ which, if used as an electrolyte, can produce a large amount of hydrogen. This will be enough to run any motor

PrimerFusion Part 2

This video provides some further details about PrimerFusion, a revolutionary fusion concept based on the PrimerField theories of electromagnetism. This process is patent-pending and in the experimental stage. The next PrimerFusion reactor is currently under construction, and this new design incorporates many modifications based on the results of previous PrimerFusion reactor experiments. We hope to begin testing this new PrimerFusion reactor in the summer of 2022. Future videos will be released soon to provide further information about the previous PrimerFusion experiments and the complete PrimerFusion process.

PrimerFusion is an aneutronic approach to fusion energy that produces no carbon emissions. In addition, the cost of the electricity produced with PrimerFusion will be much lower than current forms of energy production.

Therefore, with PrimerFusion, we can simultaneously reduce carbon emissions and energy costs.

You can find more information on our websites and www.

The new review paper on magnetic topological materials of Andrei Bernevig, Princeton University, USA, Haim Beidenkopf, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, and Claudia Felser, Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden, Germany, introduces the new theoretical concept that interweaves magnetism and topology. It identifies and surveys potential new magnetic topological materials, mentions their possible future applications in spin and quantum electronics and as materials for efficient energy conversion. The review discusses the connection between topology, symmetry, and magnetism at a level suitable for graduate students in physics, chemistry, and materials science that have a basic knowledge of condensed matter physics. 


Magnetic topological materials represent a class of compounds whose properties are strongly influenced by the topology of the electronic wavefunctions coupled with their spin configuration. Topology is a simple concept dealing with the surfaces of objects. The topology of a mathematical structure is identical if it is preserved under continuous deformation. A pancake has the same topology as a cube, a donut as a coffee cup, and a pretzel as a board with three holes. Adding spin offers additional structure – a new degree of freedom – for the realization of new states of matter that are not known in non-magnetic materials. Magnetic topological materials can support chiral channels of electrons and spins, and can be used for an array of applications from information storage, control of dissipationless spin and charge transport, to giant responses under external stimuli such as temperature and light...

Revolutionary Technology Neutralizes Radioactivity Around Chernobyl by 47% – Using Only the Processes of Earth

Revolutionary Technology Neutralizes Radioactivity Around Chernobyl by 47% – Using Only the Processes of Earth | Cool Future Technologies |

Swiss-based Exlterra reported spectacular results after one year of decontamination in the Chernobyl zone using its safe, novel technology. 


As they committed to doing last April, on the occasion of the 35th commemoration of the Chernobyl accident, the Swiss-based company Exlterra has reported spectacular results after one year of decontamination on a 2.5 acre plot of land (1 hectare), located in the radioactive exclusion zone around the plant in Ukraine. 


Exlterra announced last month that radioactive pollution in the soil decreased by 47%, and in the air above the ground by an average of 37%, one year after the installation of its NSPS technology (Nucleus Separation Passive System). 


The company believes total remediation of the area is “seriously conceivable within four years”—without moving any earth or using any chemicals...

New Zealand Designer Makes Ingenious Solar-Powered Skylight That Desalinates Water For Drinking

New Zealand Designer Makes Ingenious Solar-Powered Skylight That Desalinates Water For Drinking | Cool Future Technologies |

Powering LED light, purifying salt water, and utilizing solar power, Henry Goglau's solar desalination still is a Lexus Design Award finalist.


People living in the shanty towns of Chile’s coastline have all the water they could ever need, but they can’t drink it because it’s too salty. There’s also abundant solar energy here, but nothing to harness it. 


Clean water is scarce for the 110,000 families in the area, and power comes through unreliable electric lines. Windows are often boarded up to increase privacy and security, which removes almost all natural light.


“I wanted to achieve a design which was sustainable, passive, and created a striking feature inside the dark settlement home,” writesGoglau, a New Zealander who graduated from the Royal Danish Academy with a master’s degree, specializing in architecture for extreme conditions.

“In my development process it became apparent that I could address the lack of indoor lighting and water access by creating a hybrid skylight and solar desalination device.” 


Goglau’s device can purify 440 milliliters of water a day, with leftover brine being sifted into batteries made of zinc and copper where they power an LED strip for use during the night.

Scientists build circuit that generates clean, limitless power from graphene

Scientists build circuit that generates clean, limitless power from graphene | Cool Future Technologies |

A team of University of Arkansas physicists has successfully developed a circuit capable of capturing graphene's thermal motion and converting it into an electrical current.


“An energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene could be incorporated into a chip to provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for small devices or sensors,” said Paul Thibado, professor of physics and lead researcher in the discovery.


The findings, titled "Fluctuation-induced current from freestanding graphene," and published in the journal Physical Review E, are proof of a theory the physicists developed at the U of A three years ago that freestanding graphene — a single layer of carbon atoms — ripples and buckles in a way that holds promise for energy harvesting.

Breakthrough hypersonic hydrogen-powered plane could travel anywhere in the world in 1-2 hours | Cool Future Technologies |

Is this the future of hypersonic transportation? Russia's version of Elon Musk thinks so. 


You can't eliminate distance, but in near-space, where there's little air resistance, you can move pretty dang fast. In laymen's terms, that's the founding principle of a company that's developing a hypersonic hydrogen-powered vehicle capable of moving cargo between continents at unheard of shipping speeds.


The vehicle is designed as a hybrid between an airplane and rocket that takes off and lands horizontally from airports using a hydrogen-fed airbreathing jet engine. In this way, it will integrate with other planes when it passes through controlled airspaces. However, once a certain altitude and speed are reached, the hyperplane will switch to a cryogenic hydrogen rocket engine that will accelerate it to a hypersonic velocity.

New copper surface eliminates bacteria in just two minutes

New copper surface eliminates bacteria in just two minutes | Cool Future Technologies |

A new surface that kills bacteria more than 100 times faster and more effectively than standard copper could help combat the growing threat of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.


The new copper product is the result of a collaborative research project with RMIT University and Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, with findings just published in BiomaterialsCopper has long been used to fight different strains of bacteria, including the commonly found golden staph, because the ions released from the metal’s surface are toxic to bacterial cells.


But this process is slow when standard copper is used, as RMIT University’s Distinguished Professor Ma Qian explained, and significant efforts are underway by researchers worldwide to speed it up. “A standard copper surface will kill about 97% of golden staph within four hours,” Qian said. “Incredibly, when we placed golden staph bacteria on our specially-designed copper surface, it destroyed more than 99.99% of the cells in just two minutes. So not only is it more effective, it’s 120 times faster.” 


Importantly, said Qian, these results were achieved without the assistance of any drug. “Our copper structure has shown itself to be remarkably potent for such a common material,” he said.

Developer Of Aluminum-Ion Battery Claims It Charges 60 Times Faster Than Lithium-Ion, Offering EV Range Breakthrough

Developer Of Aluminum-Ion Battery Claims It Charges 60 Times Faster Than Lithium-Ion, Offering EV Range Breakthrough | Cool Future Technologies |

The graphene aluminum-ion battery cells from the Brisbane-based Graphene Manufacturing Group (GMG) are claimed to charge up to 60 times faster than the best lithium-ion cells and hold more energy. 


Based on breakthrough technology from the University of Queensland’s (UQ) Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, the battery cells use nanotechnology to insert aluminum atoms inside tiny perforations in graphene planes. 


GMG Managing Director Craig Nicol insisted that while his company’s cells were not the only graphene aluminum-ion cells under development, they were easily the strongest, most reliable and fastest charging. 


“It charges so fast it’s basically a super capacitor,” Nicol claimed. “It charges a coin cell in less than 10 seconds.”

The new battery cells are claimed to deliver far more power density than current lithium-ion batteries, without the cooling, heating or rare-earth problems they face. 


“So far there are no temperature problems. Twenty percent of a lithium-ion battery pack (in a vehicle) is to do with cooling them. There is a very high chance that we won’t need that cooling or heating at all,” Nicol claimed.

“It does not overheat and it nicely operates below zero so far in testing...

Hydrogen - New Powerpaste for Hydrogen Storage

Hydrogen - New Powerpaste for Hydrogen Storage | Cool Future Technologies |

“Powerpaste stores hydrogen in a chemical form at room temperature and atmospheric pressure to be then released on demand,” explains Dr. Marcus Vogt, research associate at Fraunhofer IFAM. And given that Powerpaste only begins to decompose at temperatures of around 250 °C, it remains safe even when an e-scooter stands in the baking sun for hours. Moreover, refueling is extremely simple. Instead of heading to the filling station, riders merely have to replace an empty cartridge with a new one and then refill a tank with mains water. This can be done either at home or underway. 


The starting material of Powerpaste is magnesium, one of the most abundant elements and, therefore, an easily available raw material. Onboard the vehicle, the Powerpaste is released from a cartridge by means of a plunger. When water is added from an onboard tank, the ensuing reaction generates hydrogen gas in a quantity dynamically adjusted to the actual requirements of the fuel cell. In fact, only half of the hydrogen originates from the Powerpaste ; the rest comes from the added water. 


“Powerpaste thus has a huge energy storage density,” says Vogt. “It is substantially higher than that of a 700 bar high-pressure tank. And compared to batteries, it has ten times the energy storage density.”
