Microgravity can be used to unlock old materials and make new ones in ways that can’t be replicated on Earth. Private companies know this, and are leading the charge toward the next gold rush. But can they turn low Earth orbit into a home for the next industrial revolution?

Bloomberg takes a look at the future of non-terrestrial real estate.

Over the past few decades, the International Space Station has allowed astronauts to live, work and conduct research in microgravity. But with the station’s planned retirement by 2030, private companies are being asked to create the next generation of space habitat.

Bloomberg describes how the first trillionaires will come to be.

There are millions of asteroids in our solar system. Because some are full of materials that are rare on Earth, they have been valued at stupendous amounts. But the most valuable resource in space may be something that’s abundant back on the ground.

The 5th Kind has a slightly alarmist, yet interesting, look at how AI will transform our lives, society, and the nature of what it means to be human.

As we become ever more reliant on cellular phones and devices to aid in our everyday tasks; rapid development into new technologies and Artificial Intelligence is underway at an alarming rate.

Modern devices are now specifically designed to interact with us in ways that mimic a real human being. Applications such as “siri” and “google-cast” are providing the user with a human-like interaction experience. These companies are Creating Artificially intelligent machines. Machines exhibiting cognitive behaviour, with human-like intelligence.

In this Documentary we explore the race to perfect AI machinery – researchers believe that very soon a “singularity” will be created. A machine that rises beyond human control. Something uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in catastrophic changes to human civilization.  

It’s always fun to see what the “normies” think about what AI engineers are working on. Winking smile

This is the trailer for a 12 part docuseries called “AI for Humans” that the one and only Siraj Raval has been working on.

Artificial Intelligence is the most remarkable technology of our time, and it’s starting to affect every single aspect of our lives. Despite it’s massive impact, there is still so much misunderstanding about what it is, how it works, and what we can use it to do. In this series, I’ll be traveling around the world to meet extraordinary individuals using AI to empower their communities. In each episode, I’ll visit a different country to learn more about the intersection of their needs and the modern solutions that AI provides them. This is my pitch to Netflix, I’d love their help to bring AI awareness & inspiration to an even broader audience.

While many claim that the Fourth Industrial Revolution, like previous industrial revolutions, will end up creating more jobs than they take away, the pace at which this change will happen may change that equation radically.

Here’s an interesting documentary from Deutsche Welle that explores the coming wave of job losses due to AI.  There are a lot of low-skill jobs that are going away, but there’s a surprising amount of highly skilled careers that are going to be automated away.

Don’t worry, it’s dubbed into English.

With the rapid emergence of digital devices, an unstoppable, invisible force is changing human lives in incredible ways. That force is data. We generated more data in 2017 than in all the previous 5,000 years of human history.

The massive gathering and analyzing of data in real time is allowing us to address some of humanity’s biggest challenges but as Edward Snowden and the release of NSA documents have shown, the accessibility of all this data comes at a steep price.

This documentary captures the promise and peril of this extraordinary knowledge revolution.

In this documentary by NVIDIA, take a closer look at Deep learning: the fastest-growing field in artificial intelligence, helping computers make sense of infinite amounts of data in the form of images, sound, and text.

Using multiple levels of neural networks, computers now have the capacity to see, learn, and react to complex situations as well or better than humans. Every industry will be impacted by deep learning, and many businesses are already delivering new products and services based on this new way of thinking about data and technology.
