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 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…

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.
