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 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 Business Machines) has 95+ thousand currently active patents, TI (Texas Instruments) has 20+ thousand active patents, and General Electric has 35+ thousand active patents; and Boeing has 11+ thousand active patents (Floyd, September 2020). Against research institutions, Floyd contrasted these patents because, according to Floyd, most universities do not want the patent submission or ongoing maintenance overhead (Floyd, September 2020). From history records, this knowledge has a sign. 

In history, there is evidence that a man named Jesus of Nazereth, titled the Christ, gave a parable regarding investments. As a nobleman’s huge blessing response to his servant's exclamatory surprise, a response probably written by Jesus of Nazareth’s disciple, Luke, the Book of Luke (NIV) contains the parable statement, “He replied, ‘I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but as for the one who has nothing, even what they have will be taken away” (Luke 19:26). Of Nazareth, Jesus was calling all people to action: excel and, with more, be trusted. In agreement, reader, I recommend a consideration: private industry patents, yes, but communicate interest you might have in non-research institution research grants. As a Johns Hopkins University EP (Engineering for Professionals) M.S. in Computer Science candidate, class of ‘22, I recently read a great research grant my university received, $13.48 million (Johns Hopkins Medicine). For history research, I hope that my Alma Mater, Regent University, submits patents. But while I do not have any patents, myself, I probably will, this decade. These patents shall be Computer-Science-related.

In response to the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo’s Circular Reasoning: Spiral Circuits for More Efficient AI

Circular Reasoning
On June 14, 2020, the IIS (Institute of Industrial Science) at the UTokyo (University of Tokyo) wrote Circular Reasoning: Spiraling Circuits for More Efficient AI; but a Press Release from this institute is giving a synopsis on this topic. On this press release, the IIS wrote, “Researchers from the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo designed and built specialized computer hardware consisting of stacks of memory modules arranged in a 3D-spiral for artificial intelligence (AI) applications” (IIS, June 14, 2020). The IIS continued on, saying this research is allowing a singular way work can be done regarding the next generation energy efficient AI devices (Here is a current generation, but energy efficient, AI device, Android Pie: link) shall be implemented into production.            The Fundamentals of Machine LearningOn this press release, the IIS is explaining the fundamentals of ML (Machine Learning). The IIS wrote, “Machine learning is a ty…

IS the Future of AI “Women?”

Interdisciplinary Campus Culture
On April 14, 2020, Katy Rank Lev wrote the Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) news article The Future of AI is Female. Since artificial intelligence’s (AI) initial measurement, wrote Lev, CMU built AI. Lev wrote that each of the colleges CMU is representing contribute to make AI a new field, describing this AI as a frontier, humanity can democratize: from healthcare, the eventual goal area is education. In a rush, Lev cut the conversation short, and Lev mentioned CMU’s interdisciplinary campus culture as the source of the effective AI women, but this is despite women historically not represented as scientists, technologists, and engineers, and math (STEM), worldwide. But CMU is spotlighting undergraduate students and highly honored faculty members, and Lev is including these women because she agrees with the Women in Tech movement as far as the East is from the West: CMU is the best Computer Science University with AI, and this is IT at this point in ti…

Drone Uses AI and 11,500 Crashes to Learn How to Fly

Learning to Fly by Crashing
On 10 May, 2017, Evan Ackerman wrote the IEEE (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers) SPECTRUM article Drone Uses AI and 11,500 Crashes to Learn How to Fly. In Ackerman’s article, Ackerman used a block quote by Carnegie Mellon University roboticists Dhiraj Gandhi, Lerrel Pinto; and Abhinav Gupta, the writers of a paper, “Learning to Fly by Crashing” (Gandhi, et. al., 27 Apr 2017). From Ackerman’s block quote from Gandhi, et. al., “[T]he gap between simulation and real world remains large especially for perception problems” (Gandhi, et. al.). Ackerman contrasted known motion from unconfirmed motion without identifying the pre-existing condition called Schrödinger’s cat in the case that the crashes shall eventually happen without outside help: a continuing crash failure, and in security terms this is interned as a false positive because this helps Schrödinger’s cat stay alive or rest buried in the soil. In this case, this drone detects these two …
