- MOVE OVER SILICON SWITCHES: THERE’S A NEW WAY TO COMPUTE
- By Staff Writers – Brooklyn NY (SPX) – May 09, 2019 – Image: file illustration only
- Logic and memory devices, such as the hard drives in computers, now use nanomagnetic mechanisms to store and manipulate information. Unlike silicon transistors, which
have fundamental efficiency limitations, they require no energy to maintain their magnetic state: Energy is needed only for reading and writing information.
- One method of controlling magnetism uses electrical current that transports spin to write information, but this usually involves flowing charge. Because this generates heat and energy loss, the costs can be enormous, particularly in the case of large server farms or in applications like artificial intelligence, which require massive amounts of memory.
- Spin, however, can be transported without a charge with the use of a topological insulator – a material whose interior is insulating but that can support the flow of electrons on its surface.
- In a newly published Physical Review Applied paper, researchers from New York University introduce a voltage-controlled topological spin switch (vTOPSS) that requires only electric fields, rather than currents, to switch between two Boolean logic states, greatly reducing the heat generated and energy used.
- The team is comprised of Shaloo Rakheja, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and Andrew D. Kent, an NYU professor of physics and director of the University’s Center for Quantum Phenomena, along Michael E. Flatte, a professor at the University of Iowa.
- Rakheja employs a simple analogy to explain the impact of switching between two states more effectively. “Imagine if you were preparing a recipe and had to go into a different room anytime you needed an ingredient before returning to the kitchen to add it,” she says. “It’s just as inefficient when the portions of computing hardware needed to do a calculation and the portions needed to store it are not well integrated.” Cont’d:

California hospital delivered end-of-life news to a 78-year-old patient via a robotic machine this week, prompting the man’s family to go public with their frustration. Ernest Quintana was admitted to the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center emergency department in Fremont, California, on March 3, granddaughter Annalisia Wilharm told USA TODAY in a written message Saturday. The family knew he was dying of chronic lung disease. After an initial diagnosis, a follow-up visit was made to Quintana’s intensive care unit room by a machine accompanied by a nurse.
- FORD’S WAY TO FINISH DRIVERLESS DELIVERIES: PACKAGE-CARRYING ROBOTS
- Keith Naughton – Bloomberg – May 21, 2019
(Bloomberg) — It’s a headless robot in a driverless car. Ford is working on a way to resolve what self-driving researchers refer to as “the last 50-foot problem.” If an autonomous delivery vehicle arrives at your house, without any humans aboard, who’s going to carry the package, grocery bags or piping-hot pizza to your doorstep? A robot, of course, could be up to the task—with no tipping necessary.
- In Ford’s case, the solution is Digit, an android with two stork-like legs, arms capable of carrying a 40-pound load and a camera-encrusted torso topped by a puck-shaped laser-radar sensor. It could be the headless cousin of a battle droid from the much maligned Star Wars prequels.
- The business case for driverless delivery is even more compelling than robotaxis—and potentially easier to execute. For one thing, there’s no need to worry about the safety of human passengers. And the rise of online shopping has turned package delivery into a huge growth area. Just ask Amazon, which spent $27 billion on delivery costs last year.
- Remove the human driver from the equation, and delivery costs could plunge by 60 percent or more. The benefits could be in the billions.
- Ford would like to deploy Digit delivery robots as early as 2021, alongside the planned introduction of its autonomous vehicle fleets to ferry people and packages around the clock. “We’re going to have an AV fleet out there, and my goal is to get robots to be able to be there and ready at the same time,” said Craig Stephens, director of controls and automation in Ford’s research and advanced engineering.

By Joseph Coughlin – For 40 years, Vicky and Kyle have lived in their suburban home. The house is where they’ve collected a lifetime of memories. Every square foot of their three-bedroom split-level is a monument to their shared life’s work. But the aging couple now finds this symbol of their shared success is becoming a challenge.
- Vicky and Kyle’s unspoken strategy is divide and conquer. Kyle takes the lead on yard work, car maintenance and appliance repairs. He can still do most jobs around the house. But certain tasks, like seasonally hauling out the ladder to change the batteries of the dozen smoke alarms scattered throughout the house, have gone from rituals to major chores.
- Vicky is effectively the home’s chief purchasing officer, taking charge of grocery and pharmacy shopping. She takes the lead in arranging doctor’s appointments and helping Kyle maintain a diet and medication regimen to manage his diabetes. Diagnosed with macular degeneration, she does most errands during the day as driving at night has become more difficult. Cont’d:

VICTOR PATTON | SACRAMENTO BUSINESS JOURNAL
May 22, 2019 – PDT – An ongoing legal dispute may be stalling the implementation of super-fast free Wi-Fi access to 27 Sacramento city parks as well as connections to 280 intersections to make them smarter.
- With great fanfare in June 2017, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and other local leaders announced a $100 million public-private partnership with Verizon Communications Inc. to help bridge the city’s digital divide and build infrastructure to support its technology sector.
- Under the partnership with Verizon (NYSE: VZ), the New York-based telecom company would invest $100 million in infrastructure and equipment in return for being able to use city conduit for fiber optic development to provide free Wi-Fi access to 27 city parks, install 15 Wi-Fi kiosks and connect the intersections to fiber optic cable to help the city monitor and control traffic.
- But that 2017 contract was alleged to have violated an existing contract the city had with XG Communities LLC of Irvine. In 2016, the city signed a contract with XG to identify and create a database of city assets related to wireless technology, which would list city-owned light poles, towers, fiber and circuits that could be used by multiple carriers to develop small cell antennas to provide wireless broadband connectivity.

WITHOUT A DOUBT, 5G IS THE TECHNOLOGY THAT WILL USHER IN THE MARK OF THE BEAST
- Microchip Implants, Artificial Intelligence, 5G and The Mark of the Beast.
By Charles Wills – Image: Bio and Archives – April 1, 2019
The Mobile World Congress meeting took place in Barcelona, Spain back in February. Representatives from the telecommunications industry, auto industry, microchip industry and banksters (100,000 people in all) met to discuss the future of wireless technology. The main theme of this year’s meeting was artificial intelligence and intelligent connectivity. So how are cell phones, microchips, artificial intelligence and wireless phones connected? And why were auto manufacturers, the microchip industry and banksters involved?
Well we learned from the meeting that 5G (5th generation cell phone technology) will enable the widespread use of autonomous cars, and that’s why auto manufacturers were there. What about the banksters and the micro-chip industry? Well 5G will allow banksters to implement a cashless banking system that could be used from any cell phone by merely swiping a microchip implanted in a person’s hand. That’s why the banksters and micro-chip representatives were there. Oddly, during the meeting, a man volunteered to come on stage and have a microchip inserted in his hand. How are microchips linked to wireless phone technology?
According to MSN, “During the presentation at the Mobile World Congress, organized by Spanish bank Sabadell, a man named Pau who had already been fitted with a chip, made a payment by placing his smartphone over the skin covering the chip. After reading several reports about the goings on at the meeting, Revelation 13:16-17 immediately came to mind. “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
In the past, many Christians thought the mark of the beast was the social security system, but buying and selling doesn’t require a social security number, although it’s impossible to get a job without one. And many Christians in the 1930s thought the reason Roosevelt and his progressive Democrats outlawed gold coins was because of their trade value and the fact that they had no serial number and couldn’t be tracked. They argued that paper money has a serial number that can be recorded and tracked. Cont’d:

5G DANGER: HUNDREDS OF RESPECTED SCIENTISTS SOUND THE ALARM ABOUT HEALTH EFFECTS AS 5G
- NETWORKS GO UP NATIONWIDE
- May 19, 2019 – By Michael Snyder
5G will be as much as 100 times faster than the current 4G cellular networks. It will transform the way our citizens work, learn, communicate, and travel. It will make American farms more productive, American manufacturing more competitive, and American healthcare better and more accessible. Basically, it covers almost everything, when you get right down to it.
- Pretty amazing. And just as 4G networks paved the way for smartphones and all of the exciting breakthroughs — they made possible so many things — this will be more secure and resilient. 5G networks will also create astonishing and really thrilling new opportunities for our people — opportunities that we’ve never even thought we had a possibility of looking at.
- Sounds great, right? But in order to achieve such vastly superior performance, 5G networks will use technology that is completely different from 4G networks. 5G waves are “ultra high frequency” and “ultra high intensity”, but they are also easily absorbed by objects such as buildings and trees. So although cell towers will be much, much smaller, but they will also have to be much, much closer together than before. According to
- CBS News, it is estimated that the big cell phone companies will be putting up at least 300,000 of these small towers, and it has been projected that it will cost hundreds of billions of dollars to fully set up the 5G network nationwide.
- Needless to say, there is a tremendous amount of money at stake, and the big cell phone companies are trying very hard to assure everyone that 5G technology is completely safe. Cont’d:

Computer scientists at The University of Texas at Austin have taught an artificial intelligence agent how to do something that usually only humans can do – take a few quick
- glimpses around and infer its whole environment, a skill necessary for the development of effective search-and-rescue robots that one day can improve the effectiveness of dangerous missions.
The team, led by professor Kristen Grauman, Ph.D. candidate Santhosh Ramakrishnan and former
- Ph.D. candidate Dinesh Jayaraman (now at the University of California, Berkeley) published their results in the journal Science Robotics.
Most AI agents – computer systems that could endow robots or other machines with intelligence – are trained for very specific tasks – such as to recognize an object or estimate its volume – in an environment they have experienced before, like a factory. But the agent developed by Grauman and Ramakrishnan is general purpose, gathering visual information that can then be used for a wide range of tasks.
“We want an agent that’s generally equipped to enter environments and be ready for new perception tasks as they arise,” Grauman said. “It behaves in a way that’s versatile and able to succeed at different tasks because it has learned useful patterns about the visual world.”
The scientists used deep learning, a type of machine learning inspired by the brain’s neural networks, to train their agent on thousands of 360-degree images of different environments. Now, when presented with a scene it has never seen before, the agent uses its experience to choose a few glimpses – like a tourist standing in the middle of a cathedral taking a few snapshots in different directions – that together add up to less than 20 percent of the full scene.

DIGITAL IMPLANTS ARE THE FUTURE — BUT ARE THEY A GOOD IDEA?
Going to high school in the late 1980s, most of my friends and I adopted a personal style that more or less mimicked all of the heavy metal videos that MTV used to play at the time (Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, etc.). I suppose it was inevitable, but there came a point when we all started getting tattoos. I ended up with a cobra tattooed on my shoulder. The design fit right in with the heavy metal image, but the snake wasn’t my first choice. My original idea was to get a tattoo that made it look as though the skin had been ripped off of my forearm. Rather than exposing bone and tissue however, I wanted the imaginary
- wound to reveal a circuit board covered in microchips, kind of like what might be found inside of an android.
The reason why I abandoned that particular idea was because a close friend talked me out of it. He wisely explained that while my idea might initially look really cool, the tattoo would not age well. He told me to imagine what the tattoo would look like if I had gotten it 10 years earlier. Our discussion took place somewhere around the year 1988, so just imagine a tattoo like the one that I described, but having it depict technology from 1978. Many of the electronic devices from the late 1970s used vacuum tubes (look it up, kids) rather than transistors or microchips. The point that my friend was making was that a 1980s microchip
- would eventually look as ridiculously outdated as a vacuum tube. Cont’d:

The Silicon Valley tech giant reportedly plans to launch the cryptocurrency payment system in “a dozen countries” by the first quarter of 2020 and will begin trials of the coin by the end of 2019.
Facebook has reportedly reached out to a number of individuals and groups for advice, including the U.S. Treasury and Bank of England governor Mark Carney. Internally, the cryptocurrency project is being referred to as “Project Libra.” Facebook has reportedly been in contact with both the Coinbase and Gemini cryptocurrency exchanges, looking to strike a deal with a third-party, regulated platform in which users could store and exchange the coin.

- Persistent exposures to microwave frequencies like those from cellphones can cause mitochondrial dysfunction and nuclear DNA damage from free radicals produced from peroxynitrite
Excessive exposures to cellphones and Wi-Fi networks have been linked to chronic diseases such as cardiac arrhythmias, anxiety, depression, autism, Alzheimer’s and infertility
EMF exposure has increased about 1 quintillion times over the past 100 years. Most people experience biological impacts but have no appreciation of the damage it’s causing until it’s too late. Even then, it’s extremely difficult to link the exposure to the symptoms or the disease
5G relies primarily on the bandwidth of the millimeter wave, known to cause a painful burning sensation. It’s also been linked to eye and heart problems, suppressed immune function, genetic damage and fertility problems
EMFs have clear neuropsychiatric effects, triggering everything from foggy thinking and headaches to learning disabilities and dementia
- Are you still under the misconception that unchecked exposure to electromagnetic field (EMF) and radiofrequency (RF) radiation is of no concern? Then I urge you to view the featured documentary, “5G Apocalypse — The Extinction Event” by Sacha Stone.
- Please understand that while I am not in agreement with some of Stone’s conspiracy theories on the militarization of these frequencies, the science is beyond solid to justify concern about 5G without throwing in conspiracy allegations. I do believe that, overall, the documentary was well done and nicely packages the nonconspiracy information.
- EMF Exposure Has Dramatically Increased Over the Past 100 Years Indeed, even the earlier, and less intense, generations of wireless technologies have been shown to produce severe harm over time. As explained in my 2017 interview with Martin Pall,

FROM THE A BOMB TO THE AI BOMB, NUCLEAR WEAPONS’ PROBLEMATIC EVOLUTION
By: Sébastian SEIBT – May 5, 2019 Image: iStock
- From autonomous nuclear submarines to algorithms detecting a threat, to robot-guided high-speed missiles, artificial intelligence could revolutionise nuclear weapons – risking some profound ethical conundrums – a recent report reveals.
At 2:26 A.M. on June 3, 1980, Zbigniew Brezezinski, US President Jimmy Carter’s famously hawkish national security adviser, received a terrifying phone call: 220 Soviet nuclear missiles were heading for the US. A few minutes later, another phone call offered new information: in reality, 2,220 missiles were flying towards the US.
- Eventually, as Brezezinski was about to warn Carter of the impending doom, military officials realised that it was a gargantuan false alarm caused by a malfunctioning automated warning system. Thus, the Cold War nearly became an apocalypse because of a computer component not working properly.
- This was long before artificial intelligence ayAI) rose to prominence. But the Americans and Soviets had already begun to introduce algorithms into their control rooms in order to make their nuclear deterrence more effective. However, several incidents – most notably that of June 3, 1980 – show the disadvantages of using AI.
Novelty implies new vulnerabilities’ Almost forty years on from that near debacle, AI seems to have disappeared from the nuclear debate, even though such algorithms have become ubiquitous at every level of society. But a report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) published on May 6
- underlines the importance of this aspect. Cont’d:
