AI Is Everywhere — Should We Be Excited or Concerned? by Dan Lohrmann | Government Technology.com
Artificial intelligence is slowly transforming many areas of life — and fast — but we all need to pay attention. Reactions are all over the map, and AI will be used for both good and evil.
The advent of quantum computers has created the need for a development environment that is both accessible and easy to use.
At last week’s Inside Quantum Technology conference, I had the privilege to moderate the “Quantum Software” panel and discuss with world-class speakers from the quantum software ecosystem: Christopher Savoie, CEO and founder of Zapata Computing, Damien Nguyen, physicist and software engineer/researcher at Huawei ProjectQ, and Adriaan Rol, director Research & Development at Orange Quantum Systems.

Blockchain has been a force to reckon with in the last decade. Bitcoin happened, then the crypto mania of subsequent years drew more people who innovated, ushering in the era of decentralized finance. The world thought crypto and distributed ledger technology would plateau only for the NFT fever to resurface after a three-year hiatus following the success of CryptoKitties in early 2018.

Taking to the Air and Sea to Study Ocean Eddies
Using scientific instruments aboard a self-propelled ocean glider and several airplanes, this first deployment of the Sub-Mesoscale Ocean Dynamics Experiment (S-MODE) mission will deploy its suite of water- and air-borne instruments to ensure that they work together to show what’s happening just below the ocean’s surface. The full-fledged field campaign will begin in October 2021, with the aircraft based out of NASA’s Ames Research Center.
The S-MODE team hopes to learn more about small-scale movements of ocean water such as eddies. These whirlpools span about 6.2 miles or ten kilometers, slowly moving ocean water in a swirling pattern. Scientists think that these eddies play an important role in moving heat from the surface to the ocean layers below, and vice versa. In addition, the eddies may play a role in the exchange of heat, gases and nutrients between the ocean and Earth’s atmosphere. Understanding these small-scale eddies will help scientists better understand how Earth’s oceans slow down global climate change.
In this image, sub-mesoscale ocean dynamics, like eddies and small currents, are responsible for the swirling pattern of these phytoplankton blooms (shown in green and light blue) in the South Atlantic Ocean on Jan. 5, 2021.
