How special relativity can help AI predict the future

Computers, however, find causal reasoning hard. Machine-learning models excel at spotting correlations but are hard pressed to explain why one event should follow another. That’s a problem, because without a sense of cause and effect, predictions can be wildly off. Why shouldn’t a football reverse in flight? 

This is a particular concern with AI-powered diagnosis. Diseases are often correlated with multiple symptoms. For example, people with type 2 diabetes are often overweight and have shortness of breath. But the shortness of breath is not caused by the diabetes, and treating a patient with insulin will not help with that symptom. 

The AI community is realizing how important causal reasoning could be for machine learning and are scrambling to find ways to bolt it on.

Researchers have tried various ways to help computers predict what might happen next. Existing approaches train a machine-learning model frame by frame to spot patterns in

Future availability of non-renewable metal resources and the influence of environmental, social, and governance conflicts on metal production

Mineral reserves and resources reporting codes and use

Understanding reserve and resource assessments requires knowledge of the terminology and the way the minerals industry operates, specifically how and why mineral resources and reserves “grow” over time coincident with production13,14. Reserves and resources are reported by the global mining industry to indicate the amount of contained metal or other commodities within a given mineral deposit. These terms form the basis for formal codes, guidelines, and legal instruments that are used to determine the value for companies and other entities that own mineral deposits. The approaches outlined in these codes contain strict definitions for resources and reserves, summarised as follows (adapted from ref. 30):

  • Resources are known metal concentrations of economic interest with grade, quality and quantity suggesting reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction.

  • Reserves are the economically mineable part of resources that incorporate assessment of “modifying factors” such

The Supply Chain Of The Future Isn’t Afraid To Pivot

The Covid-19 pandemic quickly proved how unprepared the supply chain was for a global business disruption. 

The scale of disruption is staggering — 94% of Fortune 1000 companies have seen supply chain challenges, and a recent survey showed only 10% of supply chains felt completely prepared to handle the disruption. Even shortages of basics like toilet paper are a comical example of a supply chain losing pace with unpredictable public demand during an emergency. 

However, we shouldn’t let the disruption overshadow the progress that was quietly being made within the supply chain in the form of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). Before the pandemic, more than 5.8 billion endpoints were predicted to make up the intelligent IIoT ecosystem by the end of 2020. 

Now, as McKinsey points out, the rollout of IIoT in the supply chain will require a more strategic focus as part of the short and mid-term response

Future car technology: innovations coming to cars in the future

Car technology is moving faster than it ever has, with firms continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Currently, motoring is one of the key future car tech battlegrounds, with drivers expecting and demanding more and more on both old and new vehicles.

Sony’s decision to build its own car for the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) highlighted just how big a role car technology is going to play in the next decade.

While the Sony Vision-S itself is simply a test bed and a promotional tool, CES showcased how differing techs have made greater progress than expected – while some have been knocked back. Here’s our guide to the latest state of progress on key features.

Gasology Transforms the Future of Motor Fuel With Disruptive New Marketplace Technology

NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gasology announced today the release of its disruptive motor fuel marketplace and patent-pending technology that allows consumers – for the first time ever – to purchase their motor fuel 100% online for today or virtually endless periods in the future. This comprehensive online suite of web-based and mobile apps enables motor fuel suppliers and buyers to connect using a revolutionary design that will transform an industry which has not materially changed since the 1800s. Gasology has created ‘A Better Way’ to fuel mobility by bringing the entire downstream industry onto one seamless platform.

“Imagine if the only way to shop for and buy an airline ticket was to arrive at the gate and pay immediately before boarding the flight. This is the only way consumers have ever known how to buy their motor fuel,” said Gasology CEO Joe LeBlanc. “Now, imagine seeing

Social VR, Facebook Horizon And The Future Of Social Media Marketing

Presence is more important now than ever. Many around the globe are staying home and limiting their physical, social contact. Families and friends connect via Zoom calls or drive-by birthday parties. Professionals spend countless hours on screens talking with colleagues and clients. “Zoom fatigue” is a new saying among remote workers. 

Spatial presence – the feeling of “being there” in a virtual space can unlock doors to social experiences and give people a sense of belonging and fulfillment in a world changed by a pandemic that keeps many physically apart.

The hours we spend on social media have also increased. A recent Statista survey showed that 29.7 percent of U.S. social media users used social media 1-2 additional hours per day. eMarketer notes that 51% of U.S. adults are using social media at higher rates during the pandemic. 

Social virtual reality, or social VR, has seen an increase in

Glimpse of Human-Computer Symbiosis Future Unveiled at SMC2020

The adoption of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) simulation software, and High Performance Computing (HPC) have demonstrated explosive new growth during this decade. What was considered supercomputing ten years ago, is now available to anyone for rent on the cloud. And yet, we are only on the foothills compared to the mountain of new adoption that is about to occur. Growth achieved so far was driven by the compute-constrained nature of CAE, and the fact that modern compute power and price have met those constraints.

The next liftoff will come from addressing the expertise-barrier — the fact that months to years of training is needed to adopt one new simulation package, and that the manual time to set up a new simulation is longer than the time it takes to run it.

Presenting some of their latest efforts to minimize the human workload needed to
