Gigantic kites flown by robots could harness Mars's strong winds and power human colonies

Daily Mail - Science & tech

With NASA aiming to get humans to Mars by 2030, the idea of a long-term settlement on the Red Planet is getting closer to reality and scientists are working on innovated ways to power these habitats. Researchers in the Netherlands propose using massive kites to harness high Martian winds that would transformed into energy for colonists. The kite is attached by cable to a spindle. Similar kites are being developed to harness wind power on Earth, but these would be much larger, with a surface area of 530 square feet. Wind turbines and batteries are too heavy to bring to Mars via rocket, and the planet doesn't get enough sunlight to consider solar power.


Home video shows driver entering front door before deadly Tesla crash, NTSB says

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Federal investigators said Monday they were able to glean some insights into what might have happened after a fire erupted from a Tesla crash that killed two people in the Houston area in April and destroyed the vehicle's data recorder. . The National Transportation Safety Board released preliminary findings from its probe into the crash, which raised speculation about whether the vehicle's partially self-driving system, Autopilot, was to blame. The speculation stemmed from local authorities saying they were nearly positive that no one was behind the wheel when the vehicle crashed. The NTSB, in its preliminary report, said video footage from the vehicle owner's home security system showed him getting behind the wheel of the Tesla Model S and then slowly exiting the driveway. The vehicle traveled about 550 feet "before departing the road on a curve, driving over the curb, and hitting a drainage culvert, a raised manhole and a tree," according to the NTSB.


Sony reportedly warns PlayStation 5 supply could stay tight through next year

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

The struggles to find a PlayStation 5 won't appear to end any time soon. Sony warned analysts its popular video game console will remain under tight supply constraints through 2022, said a report from Bloomberg. The report, which cites several unnamed sources who attended a briefing between Sony and analysts, said Chief Financial Officer Hiroki Totoki told analysts demand has been so strong for the PS5 that "even if we secure a lot more devices and produce many more units of the PlayStation 5 next year, our supply wouldn't be able to catch up." Sony could not be immediately reached for comment. Both the PS5 and Microsoft's Xbox Series X have been difficult to find at retailers because of insatiable demand and a global semiconductor shortage.

Cybersecurity in Healthcare: How to Prevent Cybercrime

#artificialintelligence

Because COVID-19 made it difficult for consumers to venture out and run their usual errands, FIs needed to find other ways to provide their services. The only way for them to really keep up with the speedy digitization was through the implementation of AI systems. To further discuss all things AI, PaymentsJournal sat down with Sudhir Jha, Mastercard SVP and head of Brighterion, and Tim Sloane, VP of Payments Innovation at Mercator Advisory Group. Jha believes that there were two fundamentally big changes that occurred in banking during the pandemic: the environment began constantly shifting, and person-to-person interactions were abruptly limited. "Every week, every month, there were different ways that we were trying to react to the pandemic," explained Jha.


The beauty of the Matrix AI Network

#artificialintelligence

It has been silent around this project since COVID-19 shook the world last year with seemingly few updates, until recently. Despite all this, the Matrix AI team have been working diligently behind the scenes and have once again started to garner worldwide attention. We believe that we should put more effort into introducing the Matrix AI Network to the general public in a more simplified form. For many people, whether they have a general interest or a stake, it can sometimes be difficult to grasp the vision of Matrix AI as a whole. In addition, it may take a certain technical understanding as well as patience to read and understand the Matrix White and Green Papers -- The first place you should refer to for a complete technical overview.

In 'Twelve Minutes,' former Ubisoft and Rockstar developer plays with the concept of time

Washington Post - Technology News

Players move their character around the rooms of the apartment, adorned with various paintings for atmosphere, by point and click, or by using the controller if you're on Xbox. A core feature of the gameplay is being able to retain items outside of the time loop to "progress" the character forward, even when the day resets. I found a mug that I had nervously chucked into my character's inventory was still on him after the loop reset. It wasn't the most useful item when the cop was arresting my character's wife, but it made me curious about what other items I could try to store next time around.
