I am a 2000's baby, and I have found that technology is negatively affecting our society and the generations to come.
2020 will be called the International Year of Time Travel Science, because for the first time ever, it is obvious that time travel to the past is going to happen much sooner than anyone predicted. It is only a question of where, when and by who, but on an international level, the activity leading up to that has been well underway, though you wouldn't know it by looking at the news media. Though outlets like ABC, Bloomberg, and Space.com will occasionally cover time travel science stories, but if they do it is always seen as a far off notion or only theoretical and always based on Einstein's theories of Relativity - Einstein, a man who didn't even believe in time travel to the past and as if nothing else has happened over the last 100 years.
As more and more people are learning about the benefits of clean energy, the more popular solar energy is becoming. Solar energy is basically able to provide all the energy a home needs when it comes to running the appliances in the home. When installing a solar energy system in a home, most installers advise homeowners to also add the solar battery. A solar battery makes it convenient to run high capacity appliances. Not only can solar energy take care of all of our needs when it comes to enjoying electricity in the home, but they do it in a clean way.
Flying cars. Jetpacks. Rocket boots. Just some of the many predictions for future tech that the predictors and science fiction got slightly wrong. However, there are some predictions for the future that have indeed come to pass. So what are the ones that they got right, what are the ones they got horribly wrong and what are the ones that still could yet come to pass?
Our current approaches to producing solar energy are not practical on a commercial or industrial scale, and if it is to survive in the energy industry new methods must be utilized. The methods discussed in this article are alternative approaches and improvements to substantially boost the efficiency of solar cells, and if further developed, boost the efficiency of any power generation system that produces waste heat.
You’ve probably heard all of the hype about how AI is here with us already, giving us things like instant machine translation and self-driving cars. However, as a regular person, it can be difficult for you to visualize how all of this is affecting your regular life from one moment to the next. It might help to be given some examples of how machine learning and AI, in general, are being implemented in our everyday lives.
According to physicist Michio Kaku, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) began with Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) in the 16th century. From Wikipedia:
"Imagine, being back in the late 70s, in the days where the home computer revolution was just starting to take off, except for one thing - Instead of Jobs and Gates starting it all in those home garages, it's you!"
Today, we judge about cybersecurity measures such as VPNs or firewalls as solutions to specifically protect our data traffic and privacy online. This is not to be underestimated – during the last decade or two much of our life has migrated online. Here fall our online financial transactions (online banking, shopping), our one to one communication (text/audio/video) and the constantly updated virtual images of ourselves in the social media circle, as well as many other aspects that present interest for marketers, governments, criminals, etc. People have resorted to VPN providers such as TorGuard to secure their online activities. They might be different in many aspects but virtually all of these offer one key security feature - encryption of all web traffic and hiding of the IP address.
Despite advances in medicine, access to medical care remains an obstacle for many. Cost, transportation, and even the availability of healthcare are all barriers preventing many from getting the care they need. But what if there was a device that could provide medical care almost anywhere on the planet or even off it?
My son Jarret loves sci fi! So I like to scour the internet for stuff from his favorite sci-fi movies that's in the works right now. Turns out companies and governments are actually hard at work trying to create the coolest futuristic armor inspired by films like Aliens, Iron Man, and Elysium.
