Uber CEO aims for 'fully green' food-delivery business

The Japan Times

Uber Technologies Inc. wants to expand its zero emissions pledge to food-delivery and make the business environmentally sustainable, but Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi stopped short of committing to do so by a 2030 deadline for its ride-hailing arm. The CEO said in an interview that food deliveries Uber makes in Europe are typically carried on scooters and bikes, so it prioritized cars for its green ambitions. "We wanted to start with our mainline mobility business, and then based on our learnings there, we will absolutely apply them to delivery as well," Khosrowshahi said. "I don't know if it'll be included in the 2030 target, but we're absolutely going to look to drive delivery to be fully green as well." Ahead of two weeks of climate talks between world leaders -- known as COP26 -- several transportation-focused technology firms called for sped-up sustainability targets and expanded urban mobility options.

High-speed alloy creation might revolutionize hydrogen's future


A Sandia National Laboratories team of materials scientists and computer scientists, with some international collaborators, have spent more than a year creating 12 new alloys -- and modeling hundreds more -- that demonstrate how machine learning can help accelerate the future of hydrogen energy by making it easier to create hydrogen infrastructure for consumers. Vitalie Stavila, Mark Allendorf, Matthew Witman and Sapan Agarwal are part of the Sandia team that published a paper detailing its approach in conjunction with researchers from Ångström Laboratory in Sweden and Nottingham University in the United Kingdom. "There is a rich history in hydrogen storage research and a database of thermodynamic values describing hydrogen interactions with different materials," Witman said. "With that existing database, an assortment of machine-learning and other computational tools, and state-of-the art experimental capabilities, we assembled an international collaboration group to join forces on this effort. We demonstrated that machine learning techniques could indeed model the physics and chemistry of complex phenomena which occur when hydrogen interacts with metals."
