AI trends: Lead or Lose

This chart below shows you how formidable a lead the US has over the rest of the World in terms of AI. It’s number one regarding talent, infrastructure, research, and commercial investment. America is also unlikely to lose this lead soon; in terms of scores, the US scores 100 out of 100, and the second player who is China, comes in at a distant 58

AI trends: Researchers have created a “Terminator-like” liquid metal

Moreover, the vertically stretched MLMD (magnetic liquid metal droplet) can move horizontally with its half body in the solution and the other half in the air, which resembles the nature of an upright walking amphibian,” the researchers wrote in the study’s abstract.

“MLMD presents a fundamental and promising platform for the liquid metals to develop the multi-freedom actuation in free space further and eventually lead to the dynamically reconfigurable intelligent and biomimetic soft robots in the future,” the researchers wrote.

Researchers have developed ‘the first liquid metal lattice in the world.’ The team has created a series of prototypes that return to their shapes when crushed.

Pu Zhang likes to compare his team’s research on liquid metals to the Terminator — specifically 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day, in which a killer robot sent from a grim future can transform into anyone and anything in pursuit of its human prey

AI trends: the advance of cultured meat

The product in the fryer is a JUST prototype chicken nugget, which costs about $50 to make. It is manufactured from what the industry calls cultured, cell-based or cultivated meat (though the outside world knows it more commonly as lab-grown meat).

Cultured meat is a “colossal” market opportunity, says Bruce Friedrich, co-founder and executive director of the Good Food Institute (GFI). This nonprofit organisation promotes cultured meat and plant-based meat. Even a tiny bite of the $1.4tn annual global meat market would be a lot.

The study predicts far-reaching economic impacts. These lab-grown foods will cost half the conventional prices — if not less. Beef and dairy companies will be decimated, with revenues down 90% and about 90% of the 1.2 million US jobs in those industries lost by 2035.

Eventually, they will succeed in creating artificial steak identical to one obtained by killing a cow. Once the safety issue is out, 99% will opt for the lab steak, which will end ranching.

AI trends: Lab-grown food will soon destroy farming

It sounds like a miracle, but no great technological leaps were required. In a commercial lab on the outskirts of Helsinki, I watched scientists turn water into food. I saw a yellow froth churning through a porthole in a metal tank. It’s a primordial soup of bacteria, taken from the soil and multiplied in the laboratory, using hydrogen extracted from water as its energy source. When the froth was siphoned through a tangle of pipes

The hydrogen pathway used by Solar Foods is about ten times as efficient as photosynthesis. But because only part of a plant can be eaten, while the bacterial flour is mangetout, you can multiply that efficiency several times. And because it will be brewed in giant vats, the company estimates land efficiency is roughly 20,000 times greater. Everyone on Earth could be handsomely fed using a tiny fraction of its surface. If, as the company intends, the water used in the process (much less than required by farming) is electrolysed with solar power, the best places to build these plants will be deserts.

This is true for the big commercial farms, they will sink to the bottom like lead, but the small farmer that focuses on creating something unique should thrive. Unique could mean growing fruits or veggies that pack three times the nutrients of commercial products because of how the soil is tilled, and the natural fertiliser used. And yes, this can be done.

Next-Gen Batteries to Power Up Electric Vehicle Installed Base to 100 Million by 2028

The only way to significantly advance energy density is to add silicon to the Li-ion battery. The current approach of adding silicon in small incremental percentages (<10%) will enable energy density increases to 300 Wh/kg over the next 3-5 years,” Hodgson explains.

Between 2023 and 2025, expect continually increasing silicon in batteries to the point where developments will enable silicon-dominant anode. Given the research in lithium-silicon batteries and the increasing percentage of silicon in EV batteries, ABI Research believes this is the next logical step. Silicon-dominant batteries would likely enable energy densities of up to 400 Wh/kg by 2025. Most vehicles using this technology will likely have to charge powers of 300 kW+.

There are other technologies that, when combined, could push these batteries to double to triple the suggested capacity (above) in the same period.

Future batteries: Charge in seconds, last months and power over the air

Monash University researchers have developed a lithium-sulphur battery that can power a smartphone for five days, outperforming lithium-ion. The researchers have fabricated this battery and have patents and the interest of manufacturers. The group has funding for further research in 2020, saying that continued investigation into cars and grid use will continue.

The new battery technology is said to have a lower environmental impact than lithium-ion and lower manufacturing costs while offering the potential to power a vehicle for 1000km (620 miles) or a smartphone for five days.

IBM Research reports that it has discovered new battery chemistry free from heavy metals like nickel and cobalt and could potentially outperform lithium-ion. IBM Research says that this chemistry has never been combined in a battery before and that the materials can be extracted from seawater. IBM Research points out that these advantages will make its new battery technology suitable for electric vehicles. It is working with Mercedes-Benz, amongst others, to develop this technology into a viable commercial battery.

The above article is quite long; we just listed two companies it covers in the story. Not all will succeed, but when you have big names like IBM, etc., one or two are bound to follow, and that is all it takes to disrupt the old-world order. For example, today’s utility providers are sitting ducks unless they adapt extremely fast. Most won’t change so that the landscape will be ridden with the corpses of these once-mighty giants.

ARM unveils two new AI computer chip designs

The new chips allow AI applications to be brought to areas such as farming, where hundreds or thousands of low-cost sensors equipped with machine learning can be used to carefully calibrate how much water, fertiliser, or insecticide each plant should receive, Dipti Vachani, ARM’s senior vice president and general manager for automotive and IoT business, says. IoT stands for the Internet of Things, the idea of connecting all kinds of new devices, from security cameras to toasters, to the Internet.

Vachani also says that getting AI to function on relatively low-powered devices, rather than having to be in constant communication with cloud-based data centres where most AI workloads are run today, is critical for data security and privacy. For instance, she says smart speakers, such as Alexa or Google Home, could run speech recognition and some machine learning applications directly on the device. Today, those devices transmit data through the Internet to remote data centres, raising concerns about cybersecurity and eavesdropping.

The future of AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to be a game-changer in the coming years. It is expected to transform the way we live, work, and interact with each other. From self-driving cars to personalized medicine, AI is poised to revolutionize a wide range of industries and sectors. One of the biggest AI trends is its increasing domination across different domains, from manufacturing to finance and healthcare. AI will enable organizations to make more informed decisions, optimize operations, and improve customer experiences.

Another AI trend is the integration of AI with other technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain. This integration will create new business opportunities to develop innovative products and services. In addition, AI is expected to enable more personalized and efficient healthcare services, leading to better patient outcomes and lower costs.

Moreover, AI is expected to have a significant impact on the workforce. While some jobs will be displaced by automation, new jobs will also be created, particularly in data analysis and programming. AI will also facilitate the development of new products and services, creating new markets and industries.

In conclusion, AI is set to dominate everything in the coming years. Its increasing prevalence across different domains is expected to transform the way we live, work, and interact with each other. Businesses that embrace AI will be able to gain a competitive advantage and stay ahead of the curve. Here are some links to further reading on AI trends:
