Bifacial solar cells could produce more energy at lower costs

Posted by in categories: chemistry, nanotechnology, solar power, sustainability

According to scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), a bifacial perovskite solar cell holds the potential to produce higher energy yields at lower overall costs.

The bifacial solar cell captures direct sunlight on the front and reflected sunlight on the back. As a result, this type of device can outperform its monofacial counterparts, according to the new study.

“This perovskite cell can operate very effectively from either side,” said Kai Zhu, a senior scientist in the Chemistry and Nanoscience Center at NREL and lead author of a new paper.

AI Future — unbiased, fostering inclusivity & equality | Priya Bhasin | TEDxBoston

Posted by in categories: business, information science, robotics/AI

I hope this isn’t been posted before especially by me. I do have a bit of pre dementia but it’s not too bad. It’s from my TBI but they’re working on weeding out bias from AI and making it so it’s not bad for us or to us.

Thought-provoking TED Talk on how AI can unintentionally reinforce societal prejudices, perpetuate discrimination, and amplify toxic behaviors online. This talk is a call to action for individuals, tech companies, and policymakers alike. By addressing AI bias and toxicity head-on, we can pave the way for a future where AI systems are truly unbiased, fostering inclusivity and equality for all.

Android 14 Will Bring Support For Satellite SMS Starting With Pixel And Galaxy Phones, Will Require Supported Hardware

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, mobile phones, satellites

Safety first. I’ve read about tech saving lives and this is a step forward along with crash detection and AFib detection and more. Our phones are legit becoming rescue and medical devices. Any experience or thoughts?

The extent of satellite support is still not evident when it comes to smartphones, but I am really looking forward to seeing how Android 14 uses this feature. It is also important to understand that all Android phones are built differently, especially when it comes to manufacturers, and while Samsung might be the biggest, with the most amount of influence, it is possible that other companies won’t introduce the feature despite the latest version of Android supporting the feature.

Whatever the case might be, Android 14 is not far away, as the update will make its debut in October alongside Pixel 8 series. You can expect the Tensor G3 to have this support. In addition to that, new flagship phones are going to start popping up, which means that we will see some compelling hardware from a variety of companies and will perhaps also get a look at which phone does support satellite SMS and other satellite-based communication features and which doesn’t.

Gen Z’s digital natives will seem old-fashioned next to ‘Gen A,’ the first A.I. native generation, BofA says

Posted by in categories: education, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI

Just as Ray Kurzweil predicted in the book The Age of Spiritual Machines.

The analysts cited Timothy Papandreou, an advisor to Alphabet’s research and development organization, X (formerly GoogleX), who explained at a recent event that A.I. will lead to a transition from a generation of programmers to a generation of “perfect prompters” as kids learn to utilize generative A.I. “assistants” throughout their lives.

Gen A won’t need programming skills to use their A.I models, instead they will work to properly prompt these systems with simple text to get the desired outcome, whether that’s finding information about Kafka for a school paper or writing an email at work.

Smartphones as Medical Devices — The Future of Healthcare?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, mobile phones

Since I was going to become a Dr before my TBI, or a scientist but there’s this and some devices and apps are pretty accurate. Like Samsung and Apple. Now there’s the Google Pixel, the Pixel watch and of course Fitbit and more.

The same devices used to take selfies and type out tweets are being repurposed and commercialized for quick access to information needed for monitoring a patient’s health. A fingertip pressed against a phone’s camera lens can measure a heart rate. The microphone, kept by the bedside, can screen for sleep apnea. Even the speaker is being tapped, to monitor breathing using sonar technology. Smartphones as medical devices could be the next big thing.

In the best of this new world, the data is conveyed remotely to a medical professional for the convenience and comfort of the patient. Or, in some cases, to support a clinician without the need for costly hardware.

The Legal Sector And Cloud Storage: Superior Document Management

Posted by in categories: law, security

Secondly, remember that all cloud services are not created equal. So, take time to select a vendor that aligns with your firm’s security, scalability and regulatory compliance requirements. Implement robust security measures at your end and prepare a plan for data backups and disaster recovery.

Lastly, remember that change management is essential. Keep the lines of communication open, address concerns proactively and involve your team throughout the transition process. Navigating these challenges can set you on the path to successful digital transformation.

Are you all set to bid farewell to those paper mountains and extend a warm welcome to the digital cloud? Cloud storage equips your law firm not only to brace for the future but to lead the vanguard in this digital revolution. Bear in mind, the future isn’t a distant entity floating far beyond our reach; it’s here. So, what’s your next strategic move in this exciting game of legal digital transformation?
