Amazon puts its own “brands” first above better-rated products

It took Robert Gomez about five months to get his Kaffe coffee grinder to the big leagues in e-commerce: among the first three search results for “coffee grinder” on Gomez, founder of Atlanta-based consumer goods startup 4Q Brands, said he obsessively refined his photos and description, amassed reviews from happy customers, and paid Amazon $40,000 a month on advertising to boost sales, one of the elements Amazon tells sellers will increase search ranking.

What’s a ‘digital twin’? And why do we need it for EV batteries?

Although lithium-ion batteries have long been the focus of EV development, issues such as battery aging and safety still aren’t fully understood. That’s mainly because current battery management systems can obtain little information from a battery, and with poor real-time capability. They also can’t store or process large amounts of data during the operation of a vehicle.  But don’t lose your hope just yet, because digital twin tech could actually be a huge game-changer. What’s a digital twin? B...

How many ‘office days’ a week are enough? You shouldn’t need to ask

COVID-19 has fundamentally changed our relationship with the office. After the enforced experiment of lockdowns pushing about 40% of the labor force into working from home, few of us want to return to the pre-pandemic status quo. Yes, we miss the sociability of the workplace, but surveys show at least three-quarters of us want the option to spend a few days working at home and a few days in the office. But what exactly is the right balance? The experience of working from home has helped break do...

Everything we know about Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro so far

Google‘s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will officially be launched on October 19, and in typical fashion, we know a ton of details about the phones well before their release. That’s in part due to unintentional leaks, but also because Google itself has already told us a ton of information about the device’s hardware. There’s a lot to be excited about with the Pixel 6, as it seems Google is taking hardware for the first time since… well, ever. Pixel phones have always been vehicles to show off Google’s...

Sorry former Pentagon expert, but China is nowhere near winning the AI race

Nicolas Chaillan, the Pentagon’s former Chief Software Officer, is on a whirlwind press tour to drum up as much fervor for his radical assertion that the US has already lost the AI race against China. Speaking to the Financial Times in his first interview after leaving his post at the Pentagon, Chaillan said: We have no competing fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years. Right now, it’s already a done deal. Chaillan’s departure from the Pentagon was preceded by a “blistering letter” where...

AI project brings the climate crisis to your home

Scientists have developed a novel way of making people care about climate change: flooding their homes. Not their real homes, of course; the destruction is merely a  simulation — for now. But projecting catastrophic consequences onto familiar places could generate awareness through empathy. “Shock is not the endgame here,” said study lead author Victor Schmidt, a PhD candidate at the Mila Quebec AI Institute in Montreal, Canada. “We want to trigger and leverage emotions towards actions.” Climate...

‘Confused’ Waymo robotaxis keep flooding dead-end street in San Francisco

Residents of an otherwise quiet neighborhood in San Francisco have been dealing lately with a very weird affliction: the constant buzzing of several Waymo vehicles crowding a dead-end street. The self-driving taxis are flooding the end of 15th Avenue, appearing rather “confused” as they enter the area, residents told local news station KPIX. What the f is happening? “I noticed it while I was sleeping,” said resident Jennifer King to the outlet. “I awoke to a strange hum and I thought there was a...

If you suffer from snoring, this smart eye mask could stop the rumble in its tracks

TLDR: The VVFly Smart Snore Eye Mask sends gentle vibrations to adjust your sleep and knock out snoring once and for all.  For decades, snoring has been played for laughs. From Popeye to Fred Flintstone, a sleeper loudly sawing logs has been a comedy staple for film, TV, cartoons, and beyond forever.  But the reality is that snoring isn’t really all that funny. Just ask anyone who snores — or those that try to live with them. Medically speaking, snoring is usually a sign of a type of sleep apnea...

This Jupiter-like planet survived its dying star — and it could offer clues for our own Solar System

How will the Solar System die? It’s a hugely important question that researchers have speculated a lot about, using our knowledge of physics to create complex theoretical models. We know that the Sun will eventually become a “white dwarf”, a burnt stellar remnant whose dim light gradually fades into darkness. This transformation will involve a violent process that will destroy an unknown number of its planets. So which planets will survive the death of the Sun? One way to seek the answer is to l...

Dear robot, I have diarrhea: Why we trust machines with embarrassing problems

Many TV shows have a scene where a customer attempts to buy a potentially embarrassing product – a pornographic magazine perhaps or a diarrhea treatment – only to have the assistant loudly check the price or ask questions for other people to hear. Situations like this do happen in pharmacies and other shops. And they tend to make people squirm. But, what if they could interact with a robot instead of a human employee? In our recent research, my colleagues and I found the use of robots, rather th...

Forget ladders, think of your career as a river

Something seemed very wrong with the way I’d been taught to think about my career progression. Like so many of us, I’d heard professional journeys described as climbing a ladder or following a path. But as I moved forward in my work as a journalist, I wasn’t moving in a straight line. The field I was pursuing, called audience engagement, was relatively new. I certainly hadn’t taken any courses on it in college, and two of the companies I would later work for didn’t even exist when I graduated. H...

Vvolt Sirius review: This low-maintenance ebike is like riding on a cloud

New ebike companies enter the crowded market seemingly every other week. They tend to fall into one of two categories: copycats sourcing generic designs, or companies promising a myriad of gimmicky features that do little to add to the actual ride experience. Many seem more interesting in cashing in on the trend than actually building bikes meant to last, crowdfunding bikes with little support afterward. Vvolt‘s launch this year was a refreshing change of pace. While it goes without saying that ...

HTC’s lightweight Vive Flow is a VR headset you can take anywhere

HTC today announced the Vive Flow, its smallest and lightest VR headset yet. While the reflective lenses on the outside make it seem like this may be an AR headset — one that lets you see the outside world — this is strictly a VR affair. The $499 device tethers to an external power source and is more focused on lightweight immersive experiences than the high-end gaming VR headsets are normally used for. HTC says the Vive flow is “taking technology in a new direction, focusing not on what we do, ...

WhatsApp now offers encrypted backups. Here’s how to opt in

Artists create AI that predicts who the police will kill next

Yet the predictions about their deaths are based on historical events. The AI-generated victims explain how they died. Credit: Future Wakes. Future Wake was funded...

The new Electron-Ion Collider could solve the mystery of how matter holds together

When the Nobel Prize-winning US physicist Robert Hofstadter and his team fired highly energetic electrons at a small vial of hydrogen at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in 1956, they opened the door to a new era of physics. Until then, it was thought that protons and neutrons, which make up an atom’s nucleus, were the most fundamental particles in nature. They were considered to be “dots” in space, lacking physical dimensions. Now it suddenly became clear that these particles were not fun...

The transport industry isn’t doing enough to halt climate change, report says

Despite a global push towards cleaner forms of energy, we are not on track to battle global warming, the International Energy Agency (IEA) warns in its World Energy Outlook 2021 report. Even more alarmingly, the scenarios mapped out in the report show that announced pledges fall far short of the emission reductions needed to limit the temperature rises to 1.5 Celsius degrees — beyond which the worst impacts of climate change will be felt. Feeling depressed yet? Me too. Transport at the core of t...
