Australian researchers have suggested a 2050 scenario of doomsday for humanity.
Climate change is the biggest and toughest global problem humanity faces today. Global warming requires innovation from the brightest and the best. Our scientists have turned to artificial intelligence (AI) for the best possible solutions because it is easy to proactively predict and build models immediately. Top leaders like Google, IBM, and Intel have launched many pilot projects that read, analyze and suggest the right solutions to save our planet from global warming.
Here are some prominent and innovative AI projects to combat global warming.

The arctic has lost 80% of its volume of ice since 1979 and is melting at the fastest rate ever. Due to the melting glaciers, the rising sea levels
Researchers at Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) have discovered a cost-effective way to tune the spectrum of a laser to the infrared, a band of great interest for many laser applications. They collaborated with Austrian and Russian research teams to develop this innovation, which is now the subject of a patent application. The results of their work were recently published in Optica, the flagship journal of the Optical Society (OSA).
In this field of study, many laser applications have a decisive advantage if the laser wavelength is located and possibly tunable in the infrared region. However, this is still hardly the case with current ultrafast laser technologies, and scientists need to explore various nonlinear processes to shift the emission wavelength. In particular, the Optical Parametric Amplifier (OPA) has so far been the only well-established tool to reach this infrared window. Although OPA systems offer a broad range
TORONTO, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – Every day, Canadian companies struggle to reduce their carbon footprint without increasing their bottom line.
That might sound like a lofty goal, but EcoGrid Technologies, an energy equipment and solutions company based out of Toronto, ON, has a proven track record of helping industrial operators launch energy efficiency projects that pay for themselves and increase cash flow at the same time.
Recently, EcoGrid Technologies worked with LHM Technologies Inc. of Woodbridge, ON to replace facility lighting in its 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing space, where they produce high quality precision components for the aerospace, military, automotive, oil and gas and nuclear energy sectors.
“We are proud to have helped LHM fit its production facility with our state-of-the-art wireless solution,” says George Filtsos, President of EcoGrid Technologies. “Using our exclusive cutting-edge Bluetooth controls to automate illumination levels base on usage has resulted in more than
In a recently published study, a team of researchers led by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav) at Monash university suggests an innovative method to analyse gravitational waves from neutron star mergers, where two stars are distinguished by type (rather than mass), depending on how fast they’re spinning.
Neutron stars are extremely dense stellar objects that form when giant stars explode and die—in the explosion, their cores collapse, and the protons and electrons melt into each other to form a remnant neutron star.
In 2017, the merging of two neutron stars, called GW170817, was first observed by the LIGO and Virgo gravitational-wave detectors. This merger is well-known because scientists were also able to see light produced from it: high-energy gamma rays, visible light, and microwaves. Since then, an average of three scientific studies on GW170817 have been published every

Ark Invest is driving a new generation of actively managed ETFs. As opposed to the traditional passive ETF that tracks some sort of benchmark, whether it’s an index, commodity, or other financial asset, Ark’s Innovation ETF (ARKK) is focused on driving alpha (market outperformance). The ETF has been enormously successful in this endeavor, with 100% returns in 2020 thus far.
Ark’s Investment Strategy
This unique investment group, run by revolutionary investor Cathie Wood, is focused on finding the next “disruptive innovation.” The firm is looking to invest in enterprises that will change the world in the Roaring 20s.
In a Forbes interview, Wood discussed this revolutionary ETF group and its strategy, saying, “disruptive innovation is often not priced correctly by traditional investment strategies because people may not understand how big the ultimate opportunities are going to be. They aren’t sizing the opportunity, and they aren’t analyzing the disruption.”
Autophage rockets may be used for launching small satellites
The U.K. aims to secure 10% of the space industry by 2030
The U.K. government is investing in rockets that “eat themselves” up on the way to orbit as it scrambles to gain market share in the global space industry.
The ‘autophage’ rocket engine, developed by researchers from Ukraine and Glasgow University, Scotland, has received funding worth 90,000 pounds, or $117,000, from the Ministry of Defense’s innovation head-hunter Defense & Security Accelerator (DASA).
Autophage rockets, simply put, help to lift satellites into space by burning their own body as fuel. This tech produces enough energy to reach orbit in a smaller launch vehicle. It may help the U.K. claim a part of the global $2.8-billion small-satellite launch market, which at present is dominated by American companies Rocket Lab and SpaceX.

It was another solid quarter for the FactSet Innovative Technology SPDR ETF (NYSEARCA:XITK), even though both it and the Nasdaq fell quite a bit from the quarterly highs. Still, the XITK ETF tacked on a 16.1% gain in the third quarter versus a gain of “just” 11% for the index.
Given that the exchange-traded fund surged more than 47% in the second quarter, last quarter’s gains were impressive. Again that handedly outperformed the Nasdaq, which rallied 30.6% in Q2.
Some investors look at the XITK ETF and say, “No, that’s way too risky. I’ll stick
2020 has brought uncertainty to personal and professional lives. Yet, it has also seen new trends emerge, such as “stay-at-home” and “work-from-home.” Companies that have been able to adjust to these new realities, as well as those that innovate, have seen their share prices soar to new highs. Today, we’ll discuss seven innovative stocks with their eyes on the future.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) defines innovation as “the implementation of a new or significantly improved product (good or service), or process, a new marketing method, or a new organisational method in business practices, workplace organisation or external relations.”
Innovation typically begins with an idea, sometimes a simple one. Then entrepreneurship at the firm level develops it further and adds value. Finally comes commercializing it to generate revenue and profit. Innovation is important not just for companies,
