We Should Have Already Had This: The Lithium-Ion Battery With Built-In Fire Suppression

On October 22, 2020, yesterday, Dexter Johnson posted The Lithium-Ion Battery With Built-In Fire Suppression. Within this topic, Dexter Johnson regards a Stanford University research team and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (its former name was the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center[1]). Johnson stated:Now [Yi] Cui and his research team, in collaboration with SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have offered some exciting new capabilities for lithium-ion batteries based around a new polymer material they are using in the current collectors for them. The researchers claim this new design to current collectors increases efficiency in Li-ion batteries and reduces the risk of fires associated with these batteries.[2]Johnson was saying this: fires are a current Li-ion battery threat that has been realized, but a new design can secure client use-case safety, and this required this battery redesigned. As this technology approaches marketplace entry points, this shall confront Li-io…

On Self-Driving Vehicles, Re-evaluating Automation Levels

On October 18, 2020, Erik Stayton wrote "It’s Time to Rethink Levels of Automation for Self-Driving Vehicles" in the IEEE Society, SSIT (Society on Social Implications of Technology), and the magazine, Technology and Society. On media, regarding the future, Stayton agreed with Lee Vinsel. Regarding standards, Stayton wrote, “As the historian Lee Vinsel argues, standards are not just ways of classifying things. They are also attempts to shape the technological future. Thinking about how the structure of our standards contributes to their use is therefore crucial for making better policy decisions” (Stayton Sept 2020). Stayton was saying this: of the future, technology shall remain a part, but not its complete whole. Against humanity’s centralism is this: in authority, an ultimate media exchange. Without humans, media is another entity’s claimable target, but all human records are the bounty’s contents, too. As a history-based tool, its potency, replacing a human, is not reall…

On Patent Investing: Whether Industry or Academia, Invest

In the September to October 2020 edition of IEEE (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers) Potentials, Raymond E. Floyd wrote Industry or academia. With the full article title being Industry or academia: Where are the innovators, Floyd explained two different words. Floyd wrote, “Innovation has two common definitions: 1) a new idea, device, or method 2) the act or process of introducing new ideas, devices or methods. In contrast, research is defined as the systematic investigation into and study of materials and sources to establish facts and reach new conclusions” (Floyd, September 2020). Floyd was saying this: for the most people, a supposed new idea or thing, or a supposed new idea’s or thing’s introduction is average innovation description, but research is a system-level investigation, and research might involve discovering or inventing new evidence-based results. To patent-producing research corporations, Floyd applied this knowledge. Floyd stated IBM (International B…

On Hacking the Axis and Securing History Records

On Security Requirements, Review Physical Might
On May 7, 2020, John Arquilla wrote the August, 2020 blog column, Hacking the Axis. When qualifying great acts, consider Arquilla’s statement and regard for the twenty first century anno domini second World War, acronymed WWII. Arquilla wrote, “Observations of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe (May 8, 1945) included remembrances of such searing events as the struggle on Omaha Beach on D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge, and at least some recognition of the enormous contribution made by the Russian people to the defeat of Fascism” (Arquilla, 2020). Arquilla mentioned that the second World War’s European conclusion involved great physical struggles. Arquilla’s lesson learned began at the beginning of his column: in public security, physical might is important, and this is an utter security aspect.Emergent Cybersecurity RequirementsWith physical security, there is an emergent cybersecurity necessity that John Arquilla dis…

On the Topic of Domestic Graduate Students, I AM

Domestic Graduate Students
In the September 2020 edition of Communications of the ACM, Moshe Y. Vardi wrote Where Have All the Domestic Graduate Students Gone. Vardi wrote, “Tech industry giants Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google were all founded by first- or second-generation immigrants” (link). As stated previously in another article I wrote, Vardi wrote that in the month of June during the year 2020 AD, President Trump suspended new work visas and banned tens of ten thousands of foreigners against establishing employment within the U.S.A.: this was temporary. On greater division was the Trump Administration ban against U.S. universities that were operating using international students within only online classes, but remain in the U.S.A. Vardi also spoke on behalf of the entire science and engineering community without a vote and said that I strongly object to this, but I believe my objection is an average one. Against the international community becoming formally anti-U.S.A., nativ…

Stakeholder Contexts and Industry Standards: ISO/IEC 38500 IT Governance, but then an IT Compliance Framework

ISO / IEC 38500 IT Governance ^ Compliance
In information technology, standards for administration and enforcement of general applications are related to the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, and the International Electrotechnical Commission, or IEC. The ISO/IEC 38500 IT governance and compliance framework is such a standard. According to A. L. Holt (2013), directors and senior officers understanding their responsibility for governing information technology systems addresses three issues: procured system integration, responding to legislative requirements for storing personal data, and documentation (Part A, Sec. 3). SMEs Linked to Measurable Successful OutcomesWith regard to small and medium-sized enterprises, or SMEs, Olaitan Olutoyin and Stephen Flowerday suggested that the IT governance structure and the operational governance processes are linked to measurable successful outcomes by three key pillars (2016). Olutoyin and Flowerday (2016) said that the three k…

Cyber Security: The New Digital Frontier, but the Same Spirit Battle

Considering Holy Security
When Paul, formerly known as Saul of Tarsus, was preaching the good word, he saw the purpose of protecting the assets of a person as ultimately important. Paul said, “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” (New International Version, Eph 6:11-17 (link)). Paul said to protect against evil with ABBA's word. In my view, this means applying the spirituality of holy defense to the life of an individual in any place and time. In contemporary times, cybersecurity can be a digital representation of the principalities of holiness effectively protecting against the sins of humanity. On ebay, a Seventh Generation i5 Surface Pro: linkCyber Security HygieneLarry Magid shared insights about cyber security. Magid said, “So your cyber hygiene isn’t just about protecting you, it’s about protecting all of us” (Magid, 2014). The woman should protect her own interests and the interests of those who she works with along wi…

On Neuromorphic Chips: Advanced AI, Deep Learning, and Neural Network Computer Architecture

Neuromorphic Chips to Become Affordable
In the August 2020 edition of Communications of the ACM, West Linn, OR, USA-based author and journalist, Samuel Greengard, wrote Neuromorphic Chips Take Shape. The available data Greengard had is the claim that a Caltech (The California Institute of Technology) professor invented this technology, neuromorphic chips. Greengard wrote, “The concept of a brain-like computing architecture, conceived in the late 1980s by California Institute of Technology professor Carver Mead, is suddenly taking shape” (Greengard, Aug 2020, p. 9). Since the date, today, is around forty years later, this technology has remained dormant, but not in the research, thus so recent advancements probably allowed neuromorphic chips to become affordable (With LTE capabilities, see current pricing of a standard productivity PC, an i5 Microsoft Surface Pro: (link). With 3G capabilities, alternatively see the current pricing of a legacy, but GPU intensive PlayStation Vita: (link))…

On the Secure Internet of Medical Things

The Internet and Telecom of Medical Things
In the August 2020 Edition of Communications of the ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery), Chief Internet Evangelist at Google and 2012 AD to 2014 AD ACM president, Vinton G. Cerf, wrote On the Internet of Medical Things, a column regarding healthcare and the widespread availability of household Internet and Telecom technologies applicable to healthcare. Related to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, Cerf wrote that he experienced an unsettling doctor’s call because Cerf’s goal, a doctor analyzing his health, was rejected, but the offered alternative, a video consultation, was inadequate. Cerf wrote, “This led to the natural conclusion that remote detection would be helpful in these conditions” (Cerf, Aug 2020, p. 5). Cerf was saying this: he wanted a solution to the COVID-19 virus, but he had not planned an immediate solution to this contagion passing from one entity to another, so he ought to discuss solutions to this problem.

AIOps will help telcos manage AI at scale – a must in 5G networks

AI’s Profound Effect on CSPs’ Businesses
In August, 2020, Vice President of the TM Forum’s AI & Customer Experience, Aaron Boasman-Patel wrote AIOps will help telcos manage AI at scale – a must in 5G networks. Boasman-Patel wrote, “AI is going to have a profound effect on communication services providers’ (CSPs’) businesses” (Boasman-Patel, August, 2020). I believe this is an ideal, pillar-of-civilization, opportunity because AIs are special learners that advance to high-rank single task ‘completionists’ such as Go, the game, and chess, the game. Boasman-Patel continued by stating that it is desired that AI will transform CSPs’ networks, IT, and service operations, and this will enable their delivery of new and complex services that the digital ecosystem will allow across it. He also stated that the McKinsey Global Institute estimates that AI knew hot to contribute an added benefit to gross domestic product for a minimum of one decade that is, 1.2% annual growth, or $13 trillion de…

On VS Code, Starting Using C / C++

C/C++ for Visual Studio Code
Last night, on VS Code (Visual Studio Code), a popular IDE (integrated development environment), I successfully ran a simple box volume calculator app, and the language I used was C++. On my MS (Microsoft) Surface Pro LTE (link) OS, Windows 10 (link), the way I did this: is checking available VS Code extensions via internal app search, studying the relevant documentation, but then checking available walkthrough information; but the final step was handwriting this code. Image by Efes Kitap from Pixabay Extensions via Internal AppOn the first step, I went: to the sixth option region drawn using an MS Surface Pro Slim Pen (link).During this step, I also searched for a C/C++ compiler and debugger, as shown targeted using my MS Surface Pro LTE Type Cover (link) because I have begun planning a C/C++ app. I shall tell you more about this app later, this year. Just remember, this app shall follow this wisdom literature: Proverbs 23:23 (NIV, link). On VS Code, I chose…
