China Has Launched the World’s First All-Electric Cargo Ship

Posted Posted in Development, NEWS

The first ever all-electric cargo ship is in operation in China’s Pearl River. While it’s a step in the right direction to eliminate fossil fuels, the ship is being used to carry coal — the very material that encouraged the shift to clean energy.

China is now the proud owner of the world’s first all-electric cargo ship and has already put the vehicle to use. As reported by China Daily, the 2,000-metric-ton ship was launched in the city of Guangzhou last month and runs in the inland section of the Pearl River.

Constructed by Guangzhou Shipyard International Company Ltd, it can travel 80 kilometers (approximately 50 miles) after being charged for 2 hours. As noted by Clean Technica, 2 hours is roughly the amount of time it would take to unload the ship’s cargo while docked.

ReactOS 0.4.7 released!

Posted Posted in Development, NEWS

The ReactOS Project is pleased to announce the release of version 0.4.7 as we continue to work on releasing every three months.

We’re especially pleased to present this release as the very first one that’s been developed in our new Git/GitHub repository. Moving from Subversion to GitHub has proven to be an invaluable way to reach new testers, users and improve the overall awareness of the ReactOS project.

To highlight the impact we’ve had since we moved to GitHub two months ago, ReactOS now leads the Win32Api and OsDev categories in Github, overtaking many amazing and well established projects.

IBM Announces Collaboration with Leading Fortune 500 Companies, Academic Institutions and National Research Labs to Accelerate Quantum Computing

Posted Posted in AI, Development, KADEN, Medical Care, NEWS

IBM Q Network to explore practical applications of quantum computing for business and science with JPMorgan Chase, Daimler AG, Samsung, JSR Corporation, Barclays, Hitachi Metals, Honda, Nagase, Keio University, Oak Ridge National Lab, Oxford University and University of Melbourne.

These 12 initial organizations join the newly formed IBM Q Network, a collaboration of leading Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions and national research labs working directly with IBM to advance quantum computing. The IBM Q Network will also foster a growing quantum computing ecosystem based on IBM’s open source quantum software and developer tools.

The IBM Q Network provides organizations with quantum expertise and resources, and cloud-based access to the most advanced and scalable universal quantum computing systems available, starting with a 20 qubit IBM Q system. IBM also recently built and measured the first working 50 qubit prototype processor. IBM anticipates that access to this prototype will be offered to IBM Q Network participants in the next generation IBM Q system.

“IBM sees the next few years as the dawn of the commercial quantum era – a formative period when quantum computing technology and its early use cases develop rapidly. The IBM Q Network will serve as a vehicle to make quantum computing more accessible to businesses and organizations through access to the most advanced IBM Q systems and quantum ecosystem,” said Dario Gil, vice president of AI and IBM Q, IBM Research. “Working closely with our clients, together we can begin to explore the ways big and small quantum computing can address previously unsolvable problems applicable to industries such as financial services, automotive or chemistry. There will be a shared focus on discovering areas of quantum advantage that may lead to commercial, intellectual and societal benefit in the future.”

Elon Musk told party attendees that Tesla is making A.I. hardware that could be ‘the best in the world’

Posted Posted in NEWS

At a private party on Thursday, Elon Musk spoke boldly about Tesla’s upcoming custom artificial intelligence hardware.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked up the company’s work to develop custom hardware for artificial intelligence on Thursday during a talk at a company party for academic and industry researchers.

For the event in Long Beach, Calif., Musk brought with him Tesla’s vice president of hardware, Jim Keller. Musk talked about the company’s AI hardware in the course of providing information about what Keller, a former AMD chip architect, is working on.

“Jim is developing specialized AI hardware that we think will be the best in the world,” Musk said, according to one person who was at the event, which was not streamed live.
