Future Technology and Innovative Concept Topics and Ideas for Think Tanks and Radio

Greetings and welcome my radio listening viewers and on-line article readers. On this nineteenth day of October 2012 we’ll in fact be discussing future know-how, future improvements, and futuristic ideas. Certainly, I absolutely hope the Mayan calendar was flawed, or maybe these carving it merely ran out of stone merely, ran out of rock to chisel on, due to this fact the world will probably be saved from no matter it was that the Mayans thought may carry a couple of new age or renewal.

Okay so, I would prefer to dive into our subjects for right now’s radio discuss present and I am certain by now you perceive the format, mainly, “I’ll do the speaking for about half-hour minus commercials and your job is to pay attention rigorously, give you feedback and questions, after which I will open up the telephone strains to listen to what you need to say.” As you additionally in all probability know I don’t reply to on-line feedback which aren’t intellectually based mostly. That does not imply you’ll be able to’t have an opinion, nor does it imply that it needs to be the identical as mine. In reality, when you do an excessive amount of preaching to the choir, I’ll merely lower you off, maybe agree with you, and go to the subsequent caller.

Our job is to have an mental dialogue, dialogue, debate and discourse. That is why you are right here, and that is my mission, and we’ll full it. Now then, clearly there’s a super quantity of discuss innovation, the necessity for innovators and entrepreneurs in our nation to maintain us robust, vibrant, and on the vanguard of know-how. You will not get any disagreement right here on that actuality, however it appears as if the phrase “innovation” is probably one of the crucial overused phrases within the English language at the moment, maybe apart from “unsustainable” which by the best way, some issues which can seem like unsustainable or dire issues we imagine we face right now, however could very properly be solved with the know-how of the longer term.

Einstein used to say that; “it takes an excellent particular person to resolve an issue, but it surely takes a inventive genius to forestall the issue from ever taking place first place,” and due to this fact, I might say that the inventive geniuses do not all the time get the credit score for fixing the issues, however the good particular person will, even when their earlier options became unintended penalties, and they’re rehired to repair what they broke the primary time after supposedly fixing one thing to avoid wasting us all.

Okay so, right here is the place I will begin throwing out subjects, with just a little dialogue connected to every one. They’ll run the gamut all throughout the board from science fiction subjects to right now’s newest and best applied sciences and what they may imply for our future. I will even throw out some private authentic progressive ideas, as I give you at the least two new authentic ideas per day, and we are able to talk about these as properly if you want, or maybe you should have a unique matter for our dialogue right here. Now then let’s start with the primary matter;

1.) Will Bodily Cash Survive the Subsequent Three A long time – Hackers and Commerce Questioned

In actuality, cash has little or no worth – contemplate a greenback invoice, it is only a flimsy piece of paper, so how a lot is it actually price? All of us imagine it’s price no matter it says on the face of it whether or not or not it’s one greenback, 5 {dollars}, $10, $20, $50, or perhaps a C-note. Cash solely works as a result of individuals think about its worth, and what it may well purchase. A lot of the cash which is created nowadays by no means really exists in a bodily kind, it solely exists within the digital world. As an example, you may receives a commission from a Company, that cash could possibly be digitally transferred into your checking account. You may then use your ATM to purchase one thing, or pay payments on-line, however you by no means had that cash in your scorching little fingers. Issues have modified lots within the final three a long time have not they?

So what is going to occur in one other three a long time I ask? Will we nonetheless have bodily cash, or will all of it be digitized, and can you ever have any cash in your pockets to purchase one thing? There are some futurists that imagine that cash will exit the window, that’s to say bodily cash, and every little thing will probably be digital sooner or later. However what if our society and civilization does not belief digital cash? What if they’re fearful that our banks are being hacked? Lately within the fall of 2012 we have famous that our banks have come beneath cyber-attacks from Iran at the least Leon Panetta believes that is the place the assaults originated, however who’s to say sooner or later if now we have a struggle with one other nation that cyber-attacks on our financial system won’t be included?

In spite of everything, financial warfare is changing into fairly widespread, why simply contemplate the sanctions, commerce wars, and our makes an attempt to cease the cash circulation from terrorists, drug sellers, cash launderers, and human traffickers, together with the central banking pc techniques of rogue nation-states and their cash transfers for issues like oil, pure sources, and navy armament?

Then there may be the difficulty at the moment the place increasingly more persons are making cellular funds on their cellular private tech units. Right now they’re shopping for a cup of espresso, a hamburger, or varied objects at retail shops. Sooner or later it may be far more, or if that turns into unreliable or these private tech units are being hacked, maybe by means of downloaded apps with malware, or from customers browsing web sites with malware, then individuals won’t belief cellular funds. Some have recommended that some private tech units may very well include pre-loaded back-doors or software program that could possibly be utilized by hackers to steal information or commit identification theft crimes.

There could come a time the place individuals do not want to purchase something on-line, or do on-line banking as a result of they do not belief the system, they do not need their cash to vanish at some point into another person’s account in some international nation. Having somebody drain your checking account solely must occur as soon as, and solely must occur to a detailed pal or a member of the family earlier than everybody they know turns into sketchy. In that case you will not need to use digital cash, and that case extra individuals will decide to make use of bodily cash, due to this fact it’s fairly doable that bodily cash will exist merely as a security issue for many years to return.

However how secure is your bodily cash going to be in case of a pure catastrophe, or a wildfire that burned down your own home, or an earthquake? What a couple of hurricane with an enormous tidal surge, a tsunami, or a significant river which jumped its banks? Is your bodily cash secure, how a lot safer is it that your digital cash in that case? Talking of pure disasters and flooding occasions, possibly we are able to higher predict them sooner or later? Let’s discuss that for a second with our subsequent matter;

2.) We Want A Actual Take a look at for 100-Yr Flood Mathematical Simulations – A Thought

How can we higher produce mathematical simulations for flood zones, or the proverbial hundred 12 months flood? What can we do to higher fine-tune these mathematical fashions in order that they’re utterly correct? A number of work has been completed up to now based mostly on elevation, and flood mapping. However there’s extra to it than that, there are all types of different issues to think about together with erosion patterns. Let me offer you a thought right here?

We all know the dates, temperatures, rain fall, and run-off proper, we all know historical past, plus we measured the terrain earlier than and after proper? Thus, any actually good mathematical simulation for erosion ought to look the identical because the precise when you enter the best way the terrain as soon as was with the interim situations to what it’s now. See that time Google Cloud certifications.

There’s a very fascinating YouTube Video I like to recommend viewing on this matter, properly a aspect problem, that of agricultural high soil erosion; “Dave Montgomery – Dust: The Erosion of Civilizations,” now then, let me specific my ideas on this as, all of those theories and hypothesis make quite a lot of sense with limitless examples within the current interval on smaller scales – widespread sense, observable, and thus it is sensible, so then, Occam’s Razor survives.

So, my hypothesis of Dave Montgomery’s lecture and concept could be the identical. Certainly, this was an excellent lecture, strong proof, and analysis. Okay so, now we are able to now put forth these findings to assist calibrate mathematic soil erosion fashions and simulations. Now then let me ask one other query, or maybe the identical query a unique approach;
