If We Survive Another Billion Years, What Will Life Be Like?

Here’s an interesting thought: what if humanity manages to survive one billion years from now? Would we finally be an interplanetary species, conquering Mars and other cosmic objects in our Solar System — or beyond? This is an idea that RealLifeLore explores in the video below.

Of course, there’s no way we could really tell what’s going to happen a billion years from now. So, all of the events featured in the video are purely evidence-based speculations. They’re plausible based on what we currently know, but we could never be sure of these predictions. However, it’s worth traveling forward in time, at least visually, to explore.

IBM’s Newest Quantum Computing Processors Have Triple the Qubits of Their Last

IBM’s Newest Quantum Computing Processors Have Triple the Qubits of Their Last

Quantum Computing Leaps

Due to their complexity, quantum computers are still largely inaccessible for the average person, which is why developers and programmers jumped at the chance to test out IBM’s five qubit quantum computing processor when the company offered the public free access to it last year, running more than 300,000 experiments on the cutting-edge machine.

Now, the company is taking the tech to the next level, announcing yesterday that it has built and tested its two most powerful platforms for quantum computing to date: the 16 qubit Quantum Experience universal computer and a 17 qubit commercial Lees verder

Mini Reactors Could Make Affordable Fusion Power a Reality by 2030

Fusion Energy: A Practical Guide [Infographic]

“Years, Not Decades”

Earlier this month the newest fusion reactor in the U.K., Tokamak Energy’s ST40, achieved first plasma. This milestone event on the road to fusion energy signals the viability of the company’s overall timetable. The more immediate aim for the ST40 is to achieve a temperature of 15,000,000 °C (27,000,000 °F), as hot as the center of the sun — this should happen in autumn of 2017 based on the progress thus far.

The company will then use what it learns from working with the ST40 to construct a tokamak device that is larger than the ST40, Lees verder

Google Just Unveiled Their Entirely Untethered, Standalone Virtual Reality Headset

A Google Rumor

Nothing can snap you out of an immersive virtual reality (VR) experience faster than tripping over a cord, which is why VR companies have been scrambling to develop wireless systems. Google is taking that freedom a step further, working to develop a headset that’s not only wireless, but also works anywhere you want to go.

The company has reportedly been working on the stand-alone VR system for more than a year now. The goal has been to create a headset that could handle everything needed to deliver a stunning virtual experience sans PC, phone, or Lees verder

Volvo Says That They Will Stop Making Diesel Engines, Thanks to Tesla

Photo source: Volvo

Diesel’s Death Knell

Electric vehicles (EVs) are rapidly becoming a juggernaut in the future of personal vehicles. Tesla is leading the charge in bringing electric cars to the mainstream. Now, other companies looking to capitalize on that momentum are joining in on the fun. Volvo’s President and CEO, Hakan Samuelsson, recently talked to a German newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, about how the Swedish car company is ramping up its plans for EVs.

Not only are they looking to expand on electric engines, but the CEO also mentioned in the interview that they will no longer pursue developing diesel Lees verder

You May Have to Go Through a Robot Recruiter to Land Your Next Job

Will Automation Steal My Job?

Meet “Mya”

Click to View Full Infographic

Since its launch in 2016, the technology has already been adopted by Fortune 500 companies in banking, consulting and retail sectors: Mya’s website reports that it has been phenomenally successful, averaging a 9.8 out of 10 on overall candidate experience, increasing recruiting output by 200%, and reducing overheads by 80%. An additional $11.8 million in funding, acquired earlier this week, may help Grayevesky achieve his goal of eliminating frictional employment — the market failure of a decrease in efficiency due to people being in between jobs.

China Is Outpacing the U.S. In Reducing Coal and Lowering Emissions

Report Confirms China’s Position as a World Leader in the Fight Against Climate Change

China and Coal

The Center for American Progress (CAP) just released its coal-fired power generation data analysis concerning China and the United States. The research was intended to enhance understanding of trends in coal-fired power in both countries and provide data upon which to base the analysis.

The CAP team shared its key findings in a May 2017 issue brief titled “Everything You Think You Know About Coal in China Is Wrong,” and in it, they reveal that China is taking aggressive steps to address its coal emissions.

In the United States, coal-fired plants can shift to natural gas to lower Lees verder

New Research May Reconcile General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics

Einstein + Quantum Physics

Scientists at the University of British Columbia have proposed a radical new theory to explain the exponentially increasing size of the universe. It involves combing two different concepts: quantum physics and Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity. By combining the theories, the researchers argue that instead of dark energy causing the universe’s growth, it could be explained by constant quantum fluctuations of vacuum energy. The paper claims — if their findings are true — that “the old cosmological constant problem would be resolved.” The press release notes the potentially transformative nature of the work: ‘Their calculations provide a completely Lees verder
