When you hear the term artificial intelligence, often the first thing people think of is sci-fi movies depicting robots taking over the world and other horrifying situations of the sort. While this is, admittedly, a rather terrifying prospect, is it really something we need to be afraid of or have we simply been watching too many movies?
Age has a lot more to it than the number of years you’ve been alive. Factors such as stress, diet, illness, sleep, and a whole host of other aspects, all influence your health, and inevitably how long you’re around for.
The Singularity is postulated as being the point where humankind creates an artificial intelligence that gains true sentience and starts to fall away from our control.
Proper water treatment and filtration is a service that most governments around the world offer to their citizens, and some countries even make clean, potable water a human right that everyone should have access to.
But over the years, we’ve seen more and more stories of people battling to get enough clean water from their taps, which is causing more people to turn to home-based filtering systems instead.
Let us face it, we have all heard the COVID-19 news – the number of infected, the fatalities, and the potential third wave. All of this is terrifying, which makes sense. However, this is not the only thing that the pandemic has brought us.
The way we build most of today’s buildings is not sustainable in almost every way. In fact, experts believe that the production of conventional cement is among the worst emitters of greenhouse gases, and as cities grow larger with every passing year, it’s become more necessary than ever to find ways of cutting down on how many emissions are being released into the atmosphere.
With the oil and coal industry making unprecedented losses, there’s never been a better time for renewable energy to take over and begin providing electricity to the masses.
There are a lot of different projects on the go across the world, including hydroelectricity, solar farms, wind turbines, and even ocean wind generation. But scientists have long speculated that there are a number of unique and unusual methods that can be utilised to start producing power.
In terms of climate change, one of the biggest problems that the human race faces right now is the amount of carbon dioxide that’s in the atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide release is a natural part of the earth’s cycle; there are thousands of processes occurring every year that release carbon, and for the most part, the planet has plenty of ways of scrubbing it back down.
Many around the world, including scientists, economists, and engineers, believe that the global oil and gas industry is in a terminal decline. 2020 proved to be one of the worst years on record for the industry, combining the blocking of most forms of travel, as well as more people than ever staying at home to work rather than going out and travelling in their vehicles.
There’s no better time to become a software engineer. There are 4.66 billion people from all across the world who use the Internet and this number is growing exponentially every single year. In 2019 there were more than 5 billion people (again, these are global statistics) who had mobile phones.
