Facebook to Hire 10,000 People to Build Zuckerberg’s ‘Metaverse’

Posted by in categories: futurism, internet

It could thin the lines between the digital and the real world.

As insiders bring things that are wrong with the company to the light, Facebook is embarking on a new journey to build the future of the internet: the metaverse. In the past, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has shared his vision of the metaverse and now the company will hire top talent from Europe to bring this concept into reality, the company said in a press release.

Social media giant, Facebook is going through a tumultuous phase as lawmakers in the U.S. are contemplating if the company that now also owns Instagram and WhatsApp is too big and needs to be broken down. Recently, former employees have turned whistleblowers to reveal how the company has neglected its own data about the harmful effects of its services and done little to rectify them.

Arm expands offerings in IoT, virtual hardware, and 5G

Posted by in categories: computing, economics, internet

Arm is releasing new chip design offerings in the internet of things (IoT), virtual hardware, and 5G sectors.

Cambridge, United Kingdom-based Arm designs the architecture that other licensed chip makers use to build their chips. Arm likes to make it easier for those licensees to come up with their applications and create a foundation for an IoT economy.

So the company said its Arm Total Solutions for IoT now delivers a full-stack solution to significantly accelerate the development and return-on-investment for IoT chip products. And Arm Virtual Hardware removes the need to develop on physical silicon, enabling software and hardware co-design and accelerating product design by up to two years, the company claimed.

Elon Musk’s plan for Tesla, Starlink, and Boring Company in India

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, energy, internet, sustainability

E Elon Musk’s plan for Tesla, Starlink, and Boring Company in India: Could the next Elon Musk Tesla empire be in India, a country that he tweeted about entering, be it for cars or helping power the country with renewable energy and there is already movement in India when it comes to Starlink internet service.

Elon Musk visited the Tesla factory in California to the Prime Minister of India(Mr. Narendra Modi). The prime minister is interested in driving India’s technological innovation and wants to see Tesla’s role in renewable energy.

India is ready to provide incentives for Tesla to come to the country, incentives that will reduce the cost of production in India compared to China.

Starlink: SpaceX’s next launch will bring a huge upgrade to the service

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

Starlink is feeling the chill.

On Wednesday, Teslarati reported that SpaceX will likely host its second Starlink launch from the west coast of the U.S. as soon as Sunday, October 17. The mission is expected to launch 51 Starlink satellites, complete with optical interlinks that will enable the satellites to bring internet access to Earth’s poles.

It’s another moment of expansion for SpaceX’s under-construction internet constellation, designed to bring high speed and low latency access to almost anywhere in the world. The company first started signing up beta testers in mid-2020, and early reports suggested that users are receiving up to 150 megabits per second.

No-code AI analytics may soon automate data science jobs

Posted by in categories: business, employment, internet, robotics/AI, science

SparkBeyond, a company that helps analysts use AI to generate new answers to business problems without requiring any code, today has released its product SparkBeyond Discovery.

The company aims to automate the job of a data scientist. Typically, a data scientist looking to solve a problem may be able to generate and test 10 or more hypotheses a day. With SparkBeyond’s machine, millions of hypotheses can be generated per minute from the data it leverages from the open web and a client’s internal data, the company says. Additionally, SparkBeyond explains its findings in natural language, so a no-code analyst can easily understand it.

The product is the culmination of work that started in 2013 when the company had the idea to build a machine to access the web and GitHub to find code and other building blocks to formulate new ideas for finding solutions to problems. To use SparkBeyond Discovery, all a client company needs to do is specify its domain and what exactly it wants to optimize.

Researchers realize quantum teleportation onto mechanical motion of silicon beams

Posted by in categories: internet, nanotechnology, particle physics, quantum physics

Quantum technology typically employs qubits (quantum bits) consisting of, for example, single electrons, photons or atoms. A group of TU Delft researchers has now demonstrated the ability to teleport an arbitrary qubit state from a single photon onto an optomechanical device—consisting of a mechanical structure comprising billions of atoms. Their breakthrough research, now published in Nature Photonics, enables real-world applications such as quantum internet repeater nodes while also allowing quantum mechanics itself to be studied in new ways.

Quantum optomechanics

The field of quantum optomechanics uses optical means to control mechanical motion in the quantum regime. The first quantum effects in microscale mechanical devices were demonstrated about ten years ago. Focused efforts have since resulted in entangled states between optomechanical devices as well as demonstrations of an optomechanical quantum memory. Now, the group of Simon Gröblacher, of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience and the Department of Quantum Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Campinas in Brazil, has shown the first successful teleportation of an arbitrary optical qubit state onto a micromechanical quantum memory.

How Facebook is planning to connect 1 billion people to the internet using robotics

Posted by in categories: business, economics, internet, robotics/AI

Facebook has announced some exciting connectivity technologies that will enable the company to provide access to fast and affordable internet service to the next billion people as well as enhance existing infrastructure projects.

The company said that Facebook Connectivity has helped provide quality internet connectivity to over 500M people since 2013. Now, the company aims to enable affordable, high-quality connectivity for another one billion people at less cost and with greater speed by leveraging emerging technologies.

Commenting on the new connectivity technologies during the unveiling, Dan Rabinovitsj, VP of Facebook Connectivity said: “We have seen that economies flourish when there is widely accessible internet for individuals and businesses.”

Is Neuromorphic Computing The Answer For Autonomous Driving And Personal Robotics?

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, internet, robotics/AI

If you follow the latest trends in the tech industry, you probably know that there’s been a fair amount of debate about what the next big thing is going to be. Odds-on favorite for many has been augmented reality (AR) glasses, while others point to fully autonomous cars, and a few are clinging to the potential of 5G. With the surprise debut of Amazon’s Astro a few weeks back, personal robotic devices and digital companions have also thrown their hat into the ring.

However, while there has been little agreement on exactly what the next thing is, there seems to be little disagreement that whatever it turns out to be, it will be somehow powered, enabled, or enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI). Indeed, the fact that AI and machine learning (ML) are our future seems to be a foregone conclusion.

Yet, if we do an honest assessment of where some of these technologies actually stand on a functionality basis versus initial expectations, it’s fair to argue that the results have been disappointing on many levels. In fact, if we extend that thought process out to what AI/ML were supposed to do for us overall, then we start to come to a similarly disappointing conclusion.
