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 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))…
