Big Data And Quantum Computers

Posted by in categories: energy, internet, nanotechnology, neuroscience, quantum physics, robotics/AI, singularity, space travel, supercomputing, wearables

Luv the whole beautiful picture of a Big Data Quantum Computing Cloud. And, we’re definitely going to need it for all of our data demands and performance demands when you layer in the future of AI (including robotics), wearables, our ongoing convergence to singularity with nanobots and other BMI technologies. Why we could easily exceed $4.6 bil by 2021.


From gene mapping to space exploration, humanity continues to generate ever-larger sets of data—far more information than people can actually process, manage, or understand.

Machine learning systems can help researchers deal with this ever-growing flood of information. Some of the most powerful of these analytical tools are based on a strange branch of geometry called topology, which deals with properties that stay the same even when something is bent and stretched every which way.

Here’s the online version of the feature on the Immortality Bus and transhumanism in Der Spiegel, one of Europe’s larger publications

Posted by in categories: internet, life extension, transhumanism, transportation

It’s in German, but easy to translate via the internet. Lots of pictures:

Study suggests the Internet really could out-evolve humanity

Posted by in categories: evolution, internet, robotics/AI

This article was written by Michael Gillings, Darrell Kemp, and Martin Hilbert from the University of California, Davis, and was originally published by The Conversation.

Living things accumulate and reproduce information. That’s really the driving principle behind life, and behind evolution. But humans have invented a new method of accumulating and reproducing information. It’s digital information, and it’s growing at an astonishing speed. The number of people using the internet is growing, as are the devices connected to it through the Internet of Things.

Digital information can copy itself perfectly, increases in copy number with every download or view, can be modified (mutated), or combined to generate novel information packets. And it can be expressed through artificial intelligence. These are characteristics similar to living things. So we should probably start thinking about digital technology as being like an organism that can evolve.

Here come the robots, welcome to the next industrial revolution

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, business, economics, internet, mobile phones, robotics/AI

Go Hubo


The so-called ‘fourth industrial revolution’ will bring ever faster cycles of innovation, posing huge challenges to companies, workers, governments and societies alike Implantable mobile phones. 3D-printed organs for transplant. Clothes and reading-glasses connected to the Internet.

Such things may be science fiction today but they will be scientific fact by 2025 as the world enters an era of advanced robotics, artificial intelligence and gene editing, according to executives surveyed by the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Apple could be testing a technology that is 100 times as fast as Wi-Fi

Posted by in category: internet

Could Apple leveraged Q-Dots for their Li-Fi that produced connection speeds of 224 GBs?


Code that refers to Li-Fi, a technology that uses light to transmit data, has been found in iOS 9.1, hinting at Apple’s interest.

LinkNYC’s free gigabit Wi-Fi is here, and it is glorious

Posted by in categories: economics, habitats, internet, mobile phones

I’m standing on the corner of 15th Street and Third Avenue in New York City, and I’m freezing. But my iPhone is on fire. After connecting to one of LinkNYC’s gigabit wireless hotspots, the futuristic payphone replacements that went live for beta testing this morning, I’m seeing download speeds of 280 Mbps and upload speeds of 317 Mbps (based on Speedtest’s benchmark). To put it in perspective, that’s around ten times the speed of the average American home internet connection (which now sits at 31 Mbps). And to top it all off, LinkNYC doesn’t cost you a thing.

Neura raises $11 million to create digital identities from consumers’ connected lives

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, internet, mobile phones, robotics/AI

Interesting; your own Digital DNA.


Neura, an Israeli Internet of Things startup that pulls together data from users’ connected devices, has raised $11 million to expand its “business reach and make the service ubiquitous.” The Series A round was led by AXA Strategic Ventures and Pitango Venture Capital, with participation from Liberty Israel Venture Fund and Lenovo Group.

Founded in 2013, Neura launched in the U.S. out of UpWest Labs, a Silicon Valley-based accelerator specifically for Israeli startups. The following year, Neura announced a $2 million funding round.

Microsoft’s HoloLens will be ‘totally wireless’ with up to 5.5 hours of battery life

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, energy, internet

Microsoft technical evangelist Bruce Harris has unveiled new details for Microsoft’s augmented reality headset, HoloLens. At an event in Tel Aviv, Harris was recorded (via Petri) saying that that any universal Windows 10 app will run natively on the device, as we’ve already heard, and that developers will naturally need to create 3D apps to realize the HoloLens’ full potential.

But Harris also talked about how the device features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, describing it as “totally wireless.” In fact, he said a wired version of the HoloLens would not be available.

Cyber Threats 2016: Killer Robots, US Presidential Race, Critical Infrastructure, Mobile Payments And More

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, energy, internet, quantum physics, robotics/AI, transportation

As I have mentioned in some of my other reports and writings; infrastructure (power grids, transportation, social services, etc.) is a key area that we need to modernize and get funding soon in place given the changes that are coming. As Russia’s own power stations were hacked; it will not be anything to when the more sophisticated releases of the Quantum Internet and Platforms are finally releasing to the main stream. Someone last week asked me what kept me up at night worrying; I told them our infrastructure and we have not been planning or modernizing it to handle the changes that are coming in the next 5 years much less the next 7 years.


With cyberattacks gaining in sophistication and volume, we can expect to see a range of new targets in the year ahead.
