“Imagine giving students a 360-degree virtual view of a historic location or a place in outer space like Mars” suggests HP Labs researcher Ji Won Jun.
“Then you use 3D models of Mars rovers or you 3D scan artifacts excavated from a site to bring those objects into a virtual reality experience where students can grab and interact with them,” Jun adds. “That experience gets them closer to understanding what it would be like to be there, and it’s different from just reading about it in a book.”
Have you ever wondered what a smart city looks like? Well, you can have a glimpse into the future now by going to the second floor of CLP’s office in Sham Shui Po, one of Hong Kong’s oldest districts.
This unlikely setting is home to SmartHub@CLP, an innovative new experience centre that demonstrates CLP’s role as a smart city enabler and a pioneer of smart living. Completed in December 2018, the 5,000 ft2 facility showcases the latest green technologies and innovative energy solutions.
From tracking cattle to bespoke weather forecasts, AI technology is helping smallholders across Asia and Africa. But it is by no means clear yet whether it will be a game changer in eliminating global poverty
Anyone following tech news these days understands that the coexistence of artificial intelligence (AI) and mankind – and the ethical conflicts that may arise from it – is no longer science fiction. There is unease about AI influencing our online shopping and social media habits; about it replacing both menial and high-skilled jobs; enhancing surveillance and policing, and contributing to the development of more sophisticated weapons.
Artificial intelligence and the internet of things have the potential to drive unprecedented productivity, reduce pollution, and improve human health. With the rollout of advanced, high speed wireless connectivity known as 5G in the next few years, the number of connected devices will explode: 28.5 billion devices are expected to be networked by 2022 growing to 300 billion connected devices and things by 2030.
The Verizon Foundation commits to be the first to introduce 5G technology to schools across the U.S. in 2019.
BASKING RIDGE, N.J., February 15, 2019 /3BL Media/ – TThe Verizon Foundation, in partnership with NYC Media Lab, announced the ten winners of the Verizon 5G EdTech Challenge. From AR and VR experiences, to machine learning, AI and mixed reality, projects were chosen for their ability to solve for student engagement, teacher preparedness and special needs support.

Today, GM announces ARĪV as the name of its new eBike brand, which includes two innovative, integrated and connected eBikes: the Meld, a compact eBike, and the Merge, a folding eBike. The name ARĪV was selected as part of a global crowdsourcing campaign announced in November 2018.
“The crowdsourcing campaign allowed us to bring consumers into the development of our brand,” said Hannah Parish, ARĪV director. “Combine that with our products and our blend of bike and automotive talent, and the result is a unique brand DNA.”

Skyrocketing numbers of people fleeing conflict. Increasing frequency and severity of natural disasters. Decreased diplomatic efforts. Slashed foreign aid budgets. A West that is increasingly embracing narrow nationalism and isolation. It all leaves us in the humanitarian community concerned for the future of our interconnected world.
