The stock market trembled in the midweek after the Federal Reserve announced Wednesday, 16 June, that it plans to hike interest rates as early as 2023. And though the Nasdaq NDAQ and S&P 500 both recovered fairly quickly from Wednesday's midafternoon slump, the Dow Jones Industrial Index wasn't quite so fortunate. The Fed's policy update deviates from previous estimates from the Fed, which pushed rate hikes out into 2024 and beyond. And while there was no mention of when the Fed will start to roll back its $120 billion per month bond purchase program, rest assured, investors are poised for that blow, too. But until that happens, we can all sit back, breathe a sigh of relief that the Fed didn't sweep the rug out from under our investment accounts overnight, and enjoy this week's trending stocks courtesy of Q.ai.

Researchers are working on an interdisciplinary research project funded by NASA that aims to design and develop a safety management system for electric autonomous aircraft. Assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, researches control, optimization, machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in air transportation and aviation. His lab builds flight deck and ground-based automation and decision support tools to improve and ensure safety for emerging aircraft types and flight operations. While a lot of the innovation in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning applications has been focused on revolutionizing the internet and digital connectivity, group of researchers are focused on expanding those benefits into transforming air transportation for physical connectivity and future mobility. Researchers are investigating on a new three-year, $2.5 million NASA System-Wide Safety grant project.

NASA's Ingenuity Mars helicopter has survived its sixth flight on the Red Planet, but not everyone went to plan, with some'unexpected motion' in the final few feet. This motion was from an'image processing issue' but the 4lb copter'muscled through' the final 213ft of its 703ft flight over the Martian surface, NASA JPL tweeted. The flight happened last week, on May 22, but NASA said it would be taking more time to review each flight before releasing data after the fifth flight was over, so information on it surviving the'wobble' weren't released until Thursday. Despite the issue the helicopter, currently in a new phase where it is helping Perseverance scout for locations, 'landed safely and is ready to fly again.' The latest trip was designed to expand the flight envelope and demonstrate aerial-imaging capabilities by taking stereo images of a region of interest to the west. Ingenuity climbed 33ft, moved 492ft southwest at 9 mph, travelled 49ft south while capturing images towards the west, before going another 164ft to its landing site.
Data science is an interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data, and apply knowledge and actionable insights from data across a broad range of application domains. In this blog, we provide links to popular open-source and public data sets, data visualizations, data analytics resources, and data lakes. A corpus of web crawl data composed of over 50 billion web pages. The Common Crawl corpus contains petabytes of data collected since 2008. It contains raw web page data, extracted metadata and text extractions.
Federal agencies are scrambling to address a surge in the use of consumer drones as the unmanned aircraft crowd the airspace above critical sites, posing a threat to public safety and national security. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration are developing a joint national air-traffic-control system for low-flying drones. The Department of Homeland Security is testing technologies to detect small drones favored by consumers, and the Pentagon is researching methods to knock them out of the sky. Reports of drone sightings around airports are pouring into the FAA at a rate of more than 100 a month. Commercial pilots flying into and out of Los Angeles International Airport have reported increased sightings of drones near their flight path, with 23 sightings reported to the control tower so far this year, according to an airport official.
NASA's Ingenuity helicopter is going to attempt a sixth flight on Mars next week, reaching speeds of up to nine miles per hour and flying for over two minutes. This will be the first flight as part of the'operations demonstration phase' that includes helping the Perseverance rover in its mission to find ancient signs of life. Ingenuity will scout multiple surface features from the air during its short flight, before landing in a different airfield to the one it takes off from for the first time. It will head up 33 feet into the Martian sky and then fly 492ft southwest at about nine miles per hour, taking photographs of rocks and dunes on the ground. In this new phase, data and images from the flight will be returned to Earth in the days following the flight, rather than in the following hours as with earlier trips.

President Biden's sweeping infrastructure plan looks to tackle America's roadways, expand broadband access, improve electric grids, and invest millions into manufacturing. That all sounds great, but it's not quite so simple. To boot, we also need to consider how these areas will be inspected in order to allocate resources and then to maintain this investment. There is currently no way that existing crews can inspect all this infrastructure effectively, and if we cannot inspect the infrastructure reliably, we cannot reasonably expect to spend repair dollars. To truly modernize and future proof America's infrastructure, it's a safe bet that drones should play a key role enabling quick inspections and spotting developing issues prior to them debilitating an electric grid or roadway.
This article is part of the Policing and Technology Project, a collaboration between Future Tense and the Tech, Law, & Security Program at American University Washington College of Law that examines the relationship between law enforcement, police reform, and technology. There's a man pacing back and forth in the grocery store parking lot, evidently agitated, shouting at the sky. On the phone, a police dispatcher reassures you that someone is coming over to help--and so is a drone. Soon, you hear the telltale buzz of a drone overhead. Through its camera, someone is watching the agitated man in the parking lot, feeding information back to emergency services.
Goddard Space Center Chief Scientist Jim Garvin provides insight on'Fox New Live.' NASA released a video this week giving viewers the chance to witness the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter's historic third flight in 3D. In a release on Wednesday, the agency said that the video was meant to approximate standing on the Martian planet and witnessing the action "firsthand." "When NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter took to the Martian skies on its third flight on April 25, the agency's Perseverance rover was there to capture the historic moment. Now NASA engineers have rendered the flight in 3D, lending dramatic depth to the flight as the helicopter ascends, hovers, then zooms laterally off-screen before returning for a pinpoint landing," the agency said. The Perseverance Mars rover's zoomable dual-camera Mastcam-Z instrument produced the video and other images NASA says provide "key data" for navigation and aids in scientists' efforts to locate rocket targets – and potentially ancient microbial life.
