John Matherly is an Internet cartographer, speaker and founder of Shodan, the world’s first search engine for the Internet-connected devices. Born and raised in Switzerland, he attended the Freies Gymnasium in Zurich where he majored in business and law until he moved to the San Diego, USA at the age of 17. There he worked at the San Diego Supercomputer Center to help manage the world’s foremost protein data bank. At the same time, he was also at...

A reactor was developed to measure the energy produced from biomass and a neural network was trained on the data output from the reactor to be able to produce the same results given the composition analysis of the biomass (plus the density and humidity of the air it will be burnt using). So you can use the neural network to calculate the energy from any biomass you have without having to have the reactor yourself. The reactor is called a conical spouted bed reactor, and it was developed to handle irregular, sticky material, and was developed by researchers at UPV/EHU in Basque Country (autonomous region in northern Spain).
Friday, July 1, 2016. Neural networks to obtain synthetic petroleum. A research group of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country has made progress in obtaining bio-oils and raw materials from biomass using its patented reactor. The UPV/EHU's Catalytic Processes for Waste Valorisation ...

"Using the popular Unity engine, the researchers started by creating a realistic simulation of a not only a city and its surroundings, complete with pedestrians, cyclists and poorly parked buses, but also a complex weather system that includes rain, snow, and seasons. They then 'built' a virtual car inside the simulation, chose specific positioning and orientation for the car's autopilot cameras, and let the car roam the virtual world, shooting video and pictures from the camera's vantage point."

"Because the software can identify with complete accuracy what the virtual cameras have captured, the system can generate a very large collection of realistic, impeccably annotated pictures and video which the researchers have dubbed Synthia (Synthetic collection of Imagery and Annotations of urban scenario)."

"AIs are becoming very good at recognizing objects such as pedestrians or vehicles. However, the boundaries of sidewalks and the recognition of traffic lights are still very challenging. Sidewalks change dramatically from country to country, from city to town. Thanks to Synthia we can produce corner cases with no risk, and focus on those."
A detailed, video game-like simulation of a city environment called Synthia is proving a cheap and highly effective way of training AIs for self-driving cars quickly, cheaply, and with nearly no human input.

Tesla's Elon Musk last week set a course toward a 'non-weird' energy future. Meanwhile, IDEA and EEI offered a glimpse of another, surprising energy future.

Fresh non GMO fruit and veg. Best breakfast deal in PBO - bteakfast burritos or French toast, eggs and meat can't be beat. Wonderful staff. Saturdays morning deli service is often hit or miss, though during the week it's great. Great garden in front, but back is the best (ImHO) and music is often being played right on the front porch.
