Technology Turning Seawater Into Drinking Water

Technology / Researchers continue to examine the potential of graphene, the one-atom thin sheet of bonded carbon atoms that was created more than ten years ago after researchers first peeled a few layers off a block of graphite with some Scotch Tape, before going on to refine their technique until a sheet just a single atom thick was produced.

water technology

The nanomaterial has been posited for all sorts of potentially revolutionary uses; from faster, thinner and even transparent electronics, to biotech implants, to better battery capacity. Now researchers at the University of Manchester say they have come up with a method for controlling the permeation of graphene oxide membranes so they can act as a filter to remove salt from ocean water. By controlling the size of the pores in the membranes the team was able to prevent common salts passing through the material, turning seawater into drinking water.

While graphene has previously been demonstrated for filtering small nanoparticles, organic molecules, and even large salts, the challenge with common salts found in seawater is their small size. Graphene membranes also swell in size when immersed in water; meaning smaller sieves were required in order to block these common salts.

The team at Manchester say they used physical confinement to control the interlayer spacing within graphene laminates immersed in water, enabling them to achieve what they describe as “accurate and tunable ion sieving”, and to provide a sieve size smaller than the diameters of hydrated ions.

While they found that permeation rates for the membranes decrease exponentially with decreasing sieve size, they also report that water transport itself is only “weakly affected.” That means the filtered water flows through the membrane relatively quickly; an important factor if the aim is to develop affordable desalination technology. As well as potential uses for desalination, the team envisages wider industrial applications for “on-demand filtration capable of filtering out ions according to their sizes.” This study is detailed in a paper published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.

Professor Rahul Nair, one of the scientists stated, “Realisation of scalable membranes with uniform pore size down to atomic scale is a significant step forward and will open new possibilities for improving the efficiency of desalination technology. This is the first clear-cut experiment in this regime. We also demonstrate that there are realistic possibilities to scale up the described approach and mass produce graphene-based membranes with required sieve sizes.”

Technology Company, Blue Origin Anticipates Amazon-Style Delivery To The Moon By 2020

Technology guru Jeff Bezos, Blue Origin and Amazon founder, is planning a trip to the Moon. His plan, uncovered through a draft proposal by The Washington Post presented to NASA and Trump’s administration, outlines Blue Origin’s intention to design a cargo spacecraft destined for the Moon that would help it carry experiments, supplies, and people to Earth’s largest natural satellite, hopefully by 2020.

technology moon delivery

Bezos has a pretty sharp grasp of terrestrial shipping through Amazon, so it makes sense that he would visualize providing similar services at a lunar scale. The CEO told the Washington Post that he thinks it is time for the United States to not only make its way back to the Moon, but also to stay, with the aim of setting up a “permanently inhabited lunar settlement.” The Moon is currently on the mind of many. Elon Musk, SpaceX CEO, recently announced that his company would be sending two private individuals on a tourist mission around the Moon, with a target flight date in 2019.

Blue Origin’s original proposal aims on getting the goods necessary to set up a permanent colony on the Moon, rather than shuttling humans or tourists to the destination. It also looks for resource commitment from NASA, both in terms of expertise and funding. In the white paper, the plan is to land the spacecraft at the Moon’s south pole, where there’s enough sunlight to power it through external solar panels, and where it has water ice nearby, which is essential for both human sustenance and the creation of rocket fuel. Its design could allow for flying 10,000 pound of materials and supplies, and it is intended to be usable with NASA’s own launch craft, the ULA’s Atlas V rocket or its own New Glenn rocket, which is still in development.

NASA Technology Discovers Seven “Earthlike” Planets

NASA technology has found seven planets with features that resemble Earth and are rotating around a star. This makes them the strongest candidates in the search for extraterrestrial life among planets outside of our solar system. These new planets all inhabit another solar system which includes seven planets that have rocky terrain and a relatively warm climate.

technology nasa

These are promising signs in terms of identifying starting points for the search for both water and life. The planets all orbit TRAPPIST-1, a so-called ‘ultracool dwarf’ star. The TRAPPIST-1 star is a tenth the size of Earth’s sun, and gives off around a quarter of the radiant heat. The planets are much closer to the sun, as well. The one closest in has a ‘year’ (the time it takes it to orbit the star) of a little over one day, and the one the furthest out completes its own annual cycle in 20 days.

Discovering the TRAPPIST-1 system and its terrestrial planets was a giant milestone. Before the discovery, we were basically limited to four candidates, one of which was our own. These new celestial bodies the size of Earth were originally found when scientists were studying the TRAPPIST-1 star they had been observing since 2015, and noticed decreases in the star’s brightness, caused by the momentary occlusion of the star by the passage of three of the system’s planets across its surface. NASA has been quick to temper expectations from observers who think this might signal favorable possibilities in terms of the discovery of alien life. The likelihood is slim, and it is early yet in terms of figuring out if the planets have other characteristics they share with Earth beyond rockiness and relative warmth owing to their placement in the so-called “habitable zone” of TRAPPIST-1, like whether they even have atmospheres and the presence of water or other gases like oxygen. According to NASA scientists, discovering this many planets orbiting a star so close with basic Earth-like characteristics is a promising sign.

email

For the second time, a bill set to reform online privacy laws, including email, dating back thirty years sailed through the House by unanimous vote. The bipartisan bill known as the Email Privacy Act (H.R. 387) would obligate the government to seek a warrant in order to access the email of American citizens. Last year, the same bill passed in the House before suspending in the Senate, partly at the hands of Senator Jeff Sessions. Last June, Sessions proposed an amendment to the reinvented ECPA that would create exceptions for “emergency disclosures.” That surveillance-friendly loophole was just one of the tweaks that caused the bill to stall out before it could come to a vote.

email

After the vote, Google Director of Law Enforcement and Information Security Richard Salgado issued a statement commending the House and urging the Senate to seize the “historic opportunity” for revision:
“The Email Privacy Act updates the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) to require the government to obtain a warrant before it can compel companies like Google to disclose the content of users’ communications. Since 2010, Google has testified before Congress four times in support of this reform, which will protect all users, and we are proud of our efforts.

This Act will fix a constitutional flaw in ECPA, which currently purports to allow the government to compel a provider to disclose email contents in some cases without a warrant, in violation of the Fourth Amendment. The Email Privacy Act ensures that the content of our emails are protected in the same way that the Fourth Amendment protects the items we store in our homes. This is consistent with the practice around the country already and what the Constitution requires; the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals concluded in 2010 that ECPA is unconstitutional to the extent it permits the government to compel a service provider to disclose to the government a user’s electronic communications content without a warrant. Today’s vote demonstrates that this conviction is widely shared.”

In a statement on the bill, the ACLU’s Neema Singh Guliani also commended the House for passing the Email Privacy Act again and urged the Senate to do the same:
“Last year, this bills’ progress was derailed by Senate efforts to water down its provisions and attach amendments that would have weakened Americans’ privacy. We urge the Senate to not repeat past mistakes; instead it should act quickly to pass legislation that ensures that Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights are protected in the digital age.”

The days of Hewlett, Packard, Jobs and Wozniak are long gone. The days when technology was pretty simple and all you needed was some tech know-how; a few transistors, a soldering iron and a garage. This was a time of amazing opportunity.

Hardware became so sophisticated that it got to the point where you could not do much without a multimillion dollar facility. Hackers were forced to move to software and the internet relocated them out of garages and into their bedrooms. The possibilities were endless with just a laptop and a little bit of coding knowledge.

These days hardware and software have both become incredibly advanced. It is so rare to find an expert in artificial intelligence; that when found, they are being paid like sports stars. Ironically; in this day and age, tech giants such as: Microsoft, Amazon, IBM and Google are making resources available to anyone who desires to access some of the world’s most advanced technology.

A Plumber’s Dream

If you own a building; you may share a common fear with other building owners that can cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars in repairs. The fear of an undetected water leak. It can, at times, be difficult to detect the exact source of water leaks by plumbers.

AquaSeca is a startup that believes it has found a solution to this problem by creating a small “wearable for pipes” that can monitor water flow within a building. When there is any sort of abnormal water flow it can identify the problem and notify the owner of the building. This in turn can save the building owner a lot of money through early detection and identification.

This of course involves sophisticated technology. Once scaled, it will monitor thousands of sensors, connect them to customer’s devices and integrate complex analytics and machine learning algorithms. Something that just 10 years back would have been impossible for even major tech companies. Today a startup like AquaSeca can get all the resources it needs to make this possible from the library of machine learning tools that Google has outsourced.

Any Car Can Be A Smart Car

Smart Cars: Automobiles and the internet have assisted fleet managers in lowering costs and improving service. Artificial intelligence including GPS’ have given dispatchers the capability of accessing a “vehicle health report” if drivers on the road run into problems and give them the ability to send help if necessary.

ActiveScaler is a startup that transforms everyday cars into smart cars. Their technology includes voice recognition, video analytics and even facial recognition. They presently support more than 20,000 cars on four continents. It runs on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform as well as its CNTK library of machine learning tools and HDInsight, its advanced cloud analytical package.

Google Glass For Factories

In January 2015 Google stopped production of its “Google Glass” which was announced in April, 2012. Google glass would have given individuals the ability to walk around recognizing people through facial recognition; pull up data on them, then take pictures and video without being noticed. This raised serious concerns.

Although Google stopped production; the potential of the technology for specialized uses is still intriguing. For example: In an industrial environment a field service employee may use the product to recognize a specific model of machine to be repaired, pull up a service manual and be guided through a service call with graphics.

The startup SeToOS has built a prototype. They did not disclose specifically how their technology was built. It is obvious; however, there are many resources to draw from. Visual recognition, the Internet of Things and advanced analytics are all easily accessible to just about anybody with an idea for an application.

The New Competitive Advantage

AquaSeca, ActiveScaler and SeToOS are all early stage startups which are still in their “garage mode” days, so to speak. Although they do not have billion dollar research budgets or industrial labs they are still able to access technology that would have been impossible to access just ten years ago. Tech giants like Microsoft and IBM would have never shared their proprietary assets in such a manner back in the day. Ironically, today IBM and Microsoft freely share their intellectual property with anyone who has an idea and so do newer companies such as Google and Facebook.

Mendix is a company that offers a platform to help mid-size and large enterprises, (who would otherwise not have had the ability to do so) connect to resources like these. The platform is so user friendly that even marketing managers can participate in developing applications. As a result Mendix is growing at a rate of 100% annually.

You may wonder why the tech giants are so generously sharing their technology. It was not that long ago that they would have made it impossible for anyone to access this information and would have sought to destroy anyone trying to compete with them. Yet now they are allowing everyone to see what their best minds produce. Why?

The answer lies in the fact that collaboration is the new competitive advantage. They earn huge revenues by offering their technology as a service in addition to offering it as a product. Their technology improves the wider it is used. The bottom line is that now a days; power resides in the center of networks rather than the top of value chains.

Last year the Apple iPhone 6 and 6s reviews were mixed but many highlighted the 6 as the iPhone’s biggest upgrade yet.  Just because the new iPhone appears to look like the 6, it doesn’t mean it isn’t a major update to the device.  Today the company is set to reveal several products and anticipation has built surrounding the release of the iPhone 7.  This comes at a time where the largest iPhone competitor, Samsung, has hit a large hurdle after reports of the technology company’s new Galaxy Note 7 may catch fire during use or while charging.

For the iPhone 7, despite its appearance to its most recent iPhone 6/6s, the product could be turning into an even bigger upgrade than any speculation has assumed.  Even though no one is saying that the upcoming iPhone 7 series are ground breaking as far as design, they are expressing their interest in the new qualities of the phone, its software, and several nuances the phone has.  Still, though, some are calling this new iPhone 7 “boring”.

Could it be the new camera? Maybe the expanded battery life? Or it could be the increase in processing speed that makes the newest phone in the iPhone franchise so “boring”. Apple is going to double the storage capacity on each model. So instead of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB iPhones, you’ll get 32GB, 128GB and 256GB storage options.

But it gets far more “boring” than this.  The iPhone 7 is said to have waterproofing as well as TWO camera with improved single-lens shooting that will add OIS and a dual lens camera on the larger iPhone 7 that could offer many new features as well.  The expected retail launch of the phone is set for September 16th and once that happens, the real reviews should start to critique the actual “boringness” of the phone…even though this may be a very exciting product release from Apple.

Apple has just released its fourth beta for the next implementation of iOs, tvOS, macOS and watchOS. Specifically, there is an innovative addition to this release. The company has updated or redesigned over a hundred emoji. Apple has released some of them on its website, and there are various changes. First of all, the emojis that currently exist is going to receive different gender options. For example, you will now be bale to use female athletes. Some of the existing emojis have been renovated. What used to be a gun is now a bright green water pistol. During the last emoji update, there were a ton of flags added to the selection field. Now, a rainbow flag has been added.

In iOS 10, Apple is going all the way with their emojis. In the new version, that is going to release in the fall. A new feature will include emoji suggestions based on what word someone has typed. In Messages, emoji are going be three times bigger if you are merely sending an emoji without any text. However, one of the best features seems to be the emojify feature. If you go to the emoji keyboard, iOS is going to highlight words so that you can tap them and replace them with emoji.

If you are currently testing iOS or macOS through their public beta program, you are not going to see any type of update today since Apple prefers to stage updates. The new versions hit the developer servers so that only people paying $99 a year for a developer account will be able to test it out. If there is no major bug, the public betas of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra are going to receive them in about ten days. Let’s see what else iOS 10 is releasing. iOS is receiving a huge update with a much more powerful Siri, a brand new Messages app and many, many minor improvements.

    The New Face Of Agri-Tech?

    KisanHub is an agricultural tech startup; the company is working to make the agricultural world much more connected. This is so that farmers will be able to “grow more and use less,” according to co-founder and CEO Sachin Shende. The Cambridge, UK-based company has now raised a million dollars in Seed funding led by Notion Capital. The company has made a cloud-based enterprise farming platform for big farming companies. It brings agronomic and operational data together in order to help farmers make better decisions.

    “KisanHub blends diverse datasets like farm, crop, operation records, weather, satellite, commodities, farm machinery, sensors, among others, to provide data-driven decision points,” Shende adds. “We make sense of such hugely heterogeneous datasets to generate and derive intelligent trends and patterns. The platform frees growers from managing and analysing complex data”.

    The KisanHub CEO & ex-farmer was asked in an interview how crunching this type of data translates into actual farming. He stated that his technology would be able to mix farm location, crop, and weather data to predict pest or disease infestation on a particular plant. The good thing is that risk is found early & spraying will be more accurate when trying to guess what pests might pay you a visit. Another use for this information might be to figure out when & how much irrigation is needed.

    “Applying the right quantity of water at the right crop growth stage boosts yields,” he adds.

    Certain field operations such as spraying or fertilizing are only be done under certain conditions. By using Shende’s platform, farmers will be able to plan for these things much better based on predicted weather for a certain region. “End users are individual farmers and the staff of the enterprise,” he adds. KisanHub states that a user base of more than 1,000 farmers as well as multiple large enterprises.
