Microsoft enters new battle field with Holo lens - the future is here

Microsoft Corp. Has received a $480 million agreement to supply prototypes for augmented fact structures to the Army for use on combat missions and in training, the Army said.

The agreement, which can eventually lead to the army purchasing over one hundred thousand headsets, is meant to “boom lethality by means of improving the potential to stumble on, determine and interact before the enemy,” according to a government description of this system.

"Augmented reality era will provide troops with extra and higher statistics to make decisions. These new paintings extend our longstanding, depended on dating with the Department of Defense to this new area,” a Microsoft spokesman stated in an emailed declaration.

The U.S. Army and the Israeli navy have already used Microsoft’s HoloLens devices in schooling, however, plans for stay fight would be a giant breakthrough.

HoloLens is one of the leading consumer-grade headsets, but a big patron market doesn’t yet exist; a video made for the European Patent Office this spring stated it had bought approximately 50,000 gadgets.  That’s approximately half of the wide variety the Army expects to buy through its augmented fact application, which is called the Integrated Visual Augmentation System, or IVAS.

With the agreement, the Army right now turns into one of Microsoft’s most important HoloLens purchasers. It expects devices to differ from their client-grade opposite numbers in a handful of key respects. In a document shared with corporations bidding at the contract, the Army stated it wanted to contain night imaginative and prescient and thermal sensing, degree important signs and symptoms like breathing and “readiness,” display for concussions and offer to listen to protection. It said the triumphing bidder might be anticipated to supply 2,500 headsets within years and show off the capability for complete-scale manufacturing.

The agreement went even though a bidding system designed to encourage the Army to do business with businesses who aren’t conventional defense contractors. Magic Leap, which makes the primary competitor to HoloLens for the client market, also pursued the contract. In early August, the Army held meetings with 25 agencies interested by collaborating in a few manners, which include Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., and Raytheon Co.

The era enterprise’s cooperation with the U.S. Navy and regulation enforcement have turn out to be an increasing number of demanding over the past yr, with employees at businesses like Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Amazon.Com Inc. Pushing again toward government contracts.
Earlier this year, hundreds of Microsoft workers signed a petition criticizing an agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that Microsoft had at the beginning stated protected a number of its AI software program. In October, a blog put up purportedly written through Microsoft employees urged the enterprise not to bid on a multi-billion dollar U.S. Navy cloud agreement. "Many Microsoft personnel don't believe that what we build have to be used for waging battle," they wrote.

Later that month, Microsoft's President and Chief Legal Officer, Brad Smith, stated the corporation might maintain to promote software to the U.S. Military. Smith wrote that personnel with moral qualms with tasks would be allowed to transport to other work inside the employer.

"Artificial intelligence, augmented reality and other technologies are raising new and profoundly important issues, inclusive of the ability of guns to behave autonomously. As we have mentioned these issues with governments, we’ve favored that no army within the world desires to awaken to find out that machines have started a warfare," he wrote. "But we can’t count on those new tendencies to be addressed accurately if the humans in the tech zone who know the maximum approximately generation withdraw from the communique.”

Can this lead up to war field of this kind in the mere future?

Hybrid photoelectrochemical and photovoltaic cells on the way to produce sustainable solar energy

In the mission for abundant, inexhaustible options in contrast to non-renewable energy sources, researchers have tried to harvest the sun's quality through "Oxygen-hydrogen split out," a new photosynthesis strategy that utilizes daylight to produce hydrogen gas from water.

But water-splitting devices have not yet proven to their potential because there still isn’t a design for making a system with the right mix of optical, electronic, and chemical properties needed for them to work.




Scientists in the U.S. Bureau of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP), a DOE Energy Innovation Hub, have furnished you with a fresh, out of the box new formula for inexhaustible powers that may sidestep the confinements in the prevailing system.



A manufactured photosynthesis gadget is known as a "hybrid photoelectrochemical and voltaic (HPEV) cell" that transforms sunlight and water into now not …

Yet Another Facebook ploy of Marketing - Dont use Multi-Factor Authentication

Marketing is a huge game played everywhere with or without Intelligence at times. People are made out sarcastic in possible ways.

Why ?

Collection of data - Just for controlling a problem or cause you need data in general science but these top companies are applying it to human.

Finding who you are is their job to sell a product which you need is something curious.But they even make you feel about a product and  pop up your inside brain.

Android Natively Supports New Form Factor "Foldables" but Microsoft plays their " Andromeda"

With many Foldable Smartphones are on the line, Google provides new Android feature support for the UI Design concept.


Samsung took it to new launch later in the new line of devices.

On the other side, Microsoft has been playing with this for about 1.5 years, as its patent, last summer is the hottest concept.

The Surface Device concept has been around for some time now, Intel's new form factor device would also feature into the same stream of devices.





As two big giants, both are featured as platform oriented as for Microsoft - Pc and Google - Phones, Now who will win this new form factor device having a combination of both.

As Microsoft app - gap might roll in x86 support in these systems would be handy for them.

From more personalized Android device to be professionalism in the security support systems will decide its fate.

Who will win?

A Simple E-bike from General Motors

General Motors is as of now turning out to be second just to Tesla in impacting past the 200,000-vehicle roof for the government EV assess credit, and it has plans to create 20 new completely electric vehicles by 2023.





Some portion of that EV-wise technique, clearly—or a parallel one, maybe—includes e-bicycles proposed for "buyers around the world." Friday, the organization indicated first pictures of two e-bicycles it's created—one collapsing and one smaller—and that they'll be accessible available to be purchased in 2019.

"We mixed charge building know-how, structure gifts and car review testing with incredible personalities from the bicycle business to make our eBikes," said Hannah Parish, GM's chief of Urban Mobility Solutions.



So far GM has next to no data about the bicycle, and nothing on the specs, what number of it may fabricate, or who those bicycle industry accomplices are. Be that as it may, it guarantees "an exclusive drive framework t…

The Blockchain and IOT Convergence

Internet of Things (IoT) has been making waves and fascinating the technology circles for some time. Creating a secure ecosystem of the IoT architecture has been an issue of the technology architects. Converging the blockchain technology with IoT can solve these issues is another which is being brainstormed.
We shall start our discussion by first understanding the basic building blocks of IoT infrastructure and its limitations. Then we shall discuss the blockchain technology in brief. We shall then study the feasibility of convergence of IoT and the blockchain technology.
IoT Basics:
Any IoT architecture can be represented by four basic building blocks: 1.Things: These are the uniquely defined nodes or primary sensors to communicate without human interaction using various connectivity methods.

2.Gateways: These are the intermediary channels between “Things” and the cloud to provide connectivity, security and manageability.

3.Network Infrastructure: This comprises of the routers, aggregators…

Artificial Intelligence - A Data Life Cycle

In the last few years, Artificial intelligence evolved from a science-fiction dream to an internal part of our lifestyle. we use AI systems to interact with our phones through Siri and Alexa
Cars like Tesla's interpret and analyze their surroundings to intelligently drive themselves  Amazon monitors our browsing habits and intelligently serves us up products it thinks we'd like to buy.
Even Google decides what kind of search results to give us based on who it thinks we are artificially intelligent algorithms are here but this is only the beginning because in the future AI is gonna change everything but do we want it to well.
"Artificial Intelligence is a way our life works on its own with data provided from IoT(Internet of Things) devices and analytical decision making through Machine Learning over a time to grow over the standard of human intelligence"
Since AI works like a data machine or data human to serve intelligence, data plays a vital role hence IoT.

First Hydrogen Fuel Train

Hydrogen energy components are a greener method to control vehicles. Be that as it may, they have additionally been cost-restrictive.

Today, however, that is beginning to change — on Monday, German travelers boarded the world's first hydrogen-controlled trains.




The new trains transport passengers along 100 kilometers (62 miles) of track and can travel up to 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) on a single tank of hydrogen, reaching top speeds of 140 km (87 mph).

Hydrogen fuel cells generate electricity by combining hydrogen with oxygen, and their only byproduct is water. That makes the cells a promising energy source that produces zero emissions and very little noise.

Though they remain pricey, hydrogen fuel cells have advantages over batteries. Instead of recharging, for instance, you can just refuel them like you would a gas or diesel engine. And because train schedules are highly predictable, it’s easier to build refueling infrastructure.

New research is helping cut the cost of hydrog…
