One of Ford’s biggest design challenges of future is not about cars

Headquarters of the Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan. In a recent survey of 30,000 workers, the auto giant found a majority never want to come back to the office five days a week, and it is taking that data seriously.

The era of massive highways and major commutes was a boon to car companies like Ford, but now the automakers find themselves in the unexpected position of designing a future of work that could work against that 20th century American approach to employment.

San Francisco officials are newly looking at remote work as a potential solution for climate change, not just a short-term fix for coronavirus, with the elimination of commutes a source of emissions reduction. The car company’s thinking may be along different lines, but over the past few months, Ford surveyed over 30,000 of its workers about working remotely and

Nvidia thinks it can solve video-calling’s greatest challenges

  • Nvidia has released its Maxine developer platform to improve video calls.
  • The platform enables face alignment and eye correction for more natural conversations.
  • Other supported features include dramatic bandwidth savings and video upscaling.

The Challenges In Caring For ‘VIP’ Patients Like President Trump

In the early morning hours of Friday, October 2nd, 2020, the public received word that the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, tested positive for Covid-19. The health of the president is considered a national security issue. Later in the day, the president was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Seven studies describe progress thus far and challenges ahead for a revolutionary zero-emissions power source — ScienceDaily

Two and a half years ago, MIT entered into a research agreement with startup company Commonwealth Fusion Systems to develop a next-generation fusion research experiment, called SPARC, as a precursor to a practical, emissions-free power plant.

Now, after many months of intensive research and engineering work, the researchers charged with defining and refining the physics behind the ambitious reactor design have published a series of papers summarizing the progress they have made and outlining the key research questions SPARC will enable.

Overall, says Martin Greenwald, deputy director of MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center and one of the project’s lead scientists, the work is progressing smoothly and on track. This series of papers provides a high level of confidence in the plasma physics and the performance predictions for SPARC, he says. No unexpected impediments or surprises have shown up, and the remaining challenges appear to be manageable. This sets a

Research challenges conventional wisdom about key autism trait — ScienceDaily

A new study into the causes of sensorimotor impairments prevalent among autistic people could pave the way for better treatment and management in the future, say psychologists.

Publishing findings in the leading journal BRAIN, the scientists from the universities of Exeter and Bath present fresh evidence that sensorimotor difficulties associated with autism are likely caused by a number of complex and precise neurobiological processes, including differences in the way autistic people perceive the world around them.

Common sensorimotor features associated with autism can include sensory overload and impaired hand-eye coordination but also general clumsiness. In addition to the well-documented challenges traditionally associated with autism — notably in social communication and interaction, and restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviours — these impairments represent a major hurdle for individuals and typically will last throughout their lives.

Yet, despite this, surprisingly little is known about the origins or mechanisms underlying these behavioural
