How Innovative AI Solutions Can Help Combat Global Warming

Ashok, CEO of UnfoldLabs, is an innovation veteran who believes in making the world a better place with futuristic technology products.

Australian researchers have suggested a 2050 scenario of doomsday for humanity.

Climate change is the biggest and toughest global problem humanity faces today. Global warming requires innovation from the brightest and the best. Our scientists have turned to artificial intelligence (AI) for the best possible solutions because it is easy to proactively predict and build models immediately. Top leaders like Google, IBM, and Intel have launched many pilot projects that read, analyze and suggest the right solutions to save our planet from global warming.

Here are some prominent and innovative AI projects to combat global warming.

1. Warm Oceans

The arctic has lost 80% of its volume of ice since 1979 and is melting at the fastest rate ever. Due to the melting glaciers, the rising sea levels threaten the natural ecosystem and other low-lying countries.

AI solution: Solutions like ASIP read satellite imagery and provide detailed sea information like ice cover, thickness or snow depth that is fed into the deep learning models. They then analyze and predict the melting point of glaciers and movement of icebergs and take the right preventive measures, such as warning sea vessels in the polar seas. This improves efficiency and the safety of every marine operation.

Interesting (scary) fact: A new AI climate model predicts Arctic sea ice could disappear in just 15 years.

2. Natural Disasters

Global warming is increasing and accelerating the magnitude of natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and wildfires. For example, Australia’s forest fires this summer occurred due to extreme heat and burned almost 20% of the country’s forests. Australia is no longer alone: The western part of the United States is also suffering greatly from

mPower Technology’s DragonSCALES Solar Cells to Launch on Sparkwing In-Orbit Demonstrator with Momentus’ Vigoride Transfer Vehicle

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Innovative solar technology company, mPower Technology, today announced that its DragonSCALES™ solar cell prototype has completed integration and testing on a Sparkwing in-orbit solar array technology demonstrator in preparation for inclusion on Momentus’ Vigoride transfer vehicle launch taking place in the fourth quarter of 2020.

DragonSCALES was developed to provide a low-cost, voltage-adjustable, high packing factor and lightweight solar power module that streamlines panel assembly and is designed for the needs of commercial LEO (low earth orbit) satellite constellations.

The Sparkwing team has introduced a groundbreaking new approach towards low cost, fast-delivery solar arrays for smallsats by offering a catalogue approach for standardized solar array models, similar to the automotive industry. The team is interested in mPower’s solar cell technology because of its potential to offer a unique combination of cost and performance benefits for next-gen solar arrays.

DragonSCALES enable disruptive, new approaches to solar applications by leveraging small, advanced silicon cells integrated on a flexible substrate in a patented, highly interconnected architecture. They provide unprecedented improvements in system cost, weight, flexibility, resilience, and ease of installation and system integration.

For emerging satellite missions, primes are continuously searching for alternative photovoltaic assembly (PVA) solutions that bring more power at lower price points and shorter delivery schedules. Silicon-based DragonSCALES solutions provide a viable, tested alternative for space power applications with advanced architecture, unparalleled performance, streamlined production and lower cost per watt.

“mPower is disrupting the space power market with its alternative approach to solar power,” said Kevin Hell, president and CEO of mPower Technology. “The Sparkwing team needs a resilient, flexible, cost-effective solar solution for their innovative smallsat solar array product, and DragonSCALES is the perfect fit given its ease of integration and unique ability to meet customized mission requirements.”

The first floor provides particularly unique opportunities, with a focus on emerging technologies, including 3D, augmented and virtual reality and a holographic theater.

“We are literally only limited by our own imaginations on what we can do,” said Sharon Medcalf, an assistant professor in the College of Public Health.

Medcalf explained, they can train people for once in a lifetime events such as a mass casualty triage by using technology like the simulation cave.

“What I can do as a faculty member using the technology in this building is create that environment of an event, and then put that first responder in that immersive environment and test his or her critical thinking skills,” she said.

Medcalf also said staff are using the holographic theater to capture speakers and presentations and preserve them for future learners in lifelike form.

“We’re designing an activity that will be based around the hologram of an expert, that we have on campus today, that we may not have on campus that same person 5-10 years from now,” she said.

Getting the health care focused content to go with all this tech wasn’t so easy. The center hired its own team to create it, with employees coming from gaming, graphic design, web development and more.

Appify Announces Launch of No-Code Appify Marketplace, Plus Two Premium Apps for Field Service and Field Sales

Appify (formerly Turbo Systems), the fast-growing no-code platform for business apps, today announced the launch of the Appify Marketplace, where companies of all sizes can access, customize and deploy new apps in minutes to automate critical tasks and better serve customers across their businesses.

Appify is kicking off the launch of the Marketplace by offering two premium Apps to help transform the experience of mobile field workers. With Appify Field Service and Appify Field Sales premium apps, companies can deploy apps to help their field teams manage work orders, assets, inventory, quotes, customer and contact information; or to generate project bids from wherever they’re engaging with customers or prospects, in minutes.

These latest enhancements to the Appify suite have allowed mid-market businesses like Modesto Irrigation District to increase efficiency significantly as crews can handle more jobs through better visibility. Partners Tech Services, ATM servicing for Diebold and other ATM manufacturers, saw similar advantages from moving their paper-based process to Appify, each field worker has gotten back at least an hour per day in efficiency gains when using the Appify Field Service app.

GDT Repair, a family-owned business that helps restaurants keep their equipment running and whose clients include big-name restaurant chains like Applebee’s, Panera Bread and Tim Hortons now uses Appify Field Service to cut back hours typically spent on manual paperwork. In addition, the app allows them to reduce its time to deliver invoices from 15 days to five minutes leading to increased cash flow for the business.

“Before Appify Field Service, all repair technicians would capture details of work onsite with paper, take pictures on their phones and didn’t have access to customer data,” said President of GDT Repair, Blake Tarana. “But with this new Appify App, we can now easily create and manage jobs on a mobile
