Congressional Report Spotlights AI, Emerging Technologies as Future of National Security

Artificial intelligence takes center stage in a new Congressional report on the future of defense that urges a foundational shift in how the U.S. approaches national security. 

Reps. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., and Jim Banks, R-Ind., who led the House Armed Services Committee’s bipartisan Future of Defense Task Force, discussed the final report’s recommendations at a Brookings Institution webinar Wednesday. 

The report takes a broad, 30-year view of the future of defense, emphasizing a whole-of-government approach and calling for greater collaboration between Silicon Valley or other innovative industry sectors and government. The task force makes the case for developing emerging technologies both for the direct benefits to national security of improving Pentagon operations and the indirect benefits global technology leadership could provide. 

“We’re calling for a real revolution in how we approach our national security,” Moulton said, arguing that without such a revolution the U.S. will lose its competitive advantage to

Top 4 Emerging Energy Technologies to Revolutionize the Future

2020 will be laid down as the year of technology consolidation rather than breakthrough innovation in the energy industry.

FREMONT, CA: New technologies like the offshore wind and lithium-ion battery storage have gone from strength to strength. Also, more novel technologies like energy blockchains and flow batteries have been relatively inactive this year. If viewed from another perspective, this is not a bad thing. It shows that many low-carbon grid technologies are maturing and achieving the scale required to compete with fossil-fuel generation. It also indicates that there is still plenty of scope for innovation in the maturing sector. 

It is important to keep an eye on emerging technologies while entering a new decade.

Marine solar

Sailing towards the growing popularity of floating solar arrays on freshwater bodies, 2019 saw a spate of announcements concerning sea-based PV projects. But if this concept will go mainstream remains open to doubt, however.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Units of Macquarie Group MQG.AX and Siemens AG SIEGn.DE are forming a venture named Calibrant Energy, that will invest in the emerging energy-as-a-service (EaaS) sector in the United States, according to a joint statement on Monday.

Electricity generation is forecast to increasingly move away from traditional structures involving large fossil fuel-burning power plants, towards localized systems using renewable energy and battery storage, known as distributed energy.

For entities embracing this model, they can choose to ‘outsource’ their power systems to a specialist entity, in the same way firms hire technology platforms rather than develop their own systems – so-called software-as-a-service (SaaS).

Set up by Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, and

A worker monitors flowers in crates as they move along a conveyor belt in the warehouse at the Multiflora (PTY) Ltd. Flower Market in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2020. South Africa’s coronavirus epidemic is on a downward curve, with new infections, hospital admissions and the positivity rate all showing declines.

Staring down almost $16 trillion of negative-yielding debt worldwide, investors will continue to be drawn to the higher returns offered by emerging-market assets and the prospect of an economic recovery next year, analysts say. Developing-nation currencies are also benefiting from broad dollar weakness, with the U.S. currency still below its 200-day moving average. Trump’s diagnosis has also made it more likely Congress and the White House will reach

Java leverages innovation to maintain its relevance in fast-paced tech environment

Java is the world’s most popular programming language and the leading application development platform — and it wants to remain a cornerstone of enterprise application stacks for years to come.

Its bet for continuing to thrive in the fast-paced technology industry is a strategy based on three pillars: trust, innovation and predictability, according to Manish Gupta (pictured, right), vice president of global marketing at Oracle and a Java steward since 2010.

“As Oracle acquired Sun [Microsystems] over 10 years ago, it’s really kept front of mind two aspects of what we want to do: The first one was to ensure there was broad accessibility to the technology and the platform for anybody that wanted to benefit from it. And the second one was to ensure that the ecosystem remained vibrant and thriving throughout,” Gupta said. “Underpinning these two objectives are really the three pillars of our strategy.”

Emerging technologies can change the African financial landscape

Africa is the home to 1.2 billion people and what has been described as the world’s largest trade area — the African Continental Free Trade Area. Africa is forging a new path to driving development, and access to financial services will play a significant role in its economic growth. The need to provide improved systems for poverty reduction, if not alleviation, is further accentuated when one considers that 416 million Africans live in extreme poverty, and access to financial services is right at the heart of the solution.

In a review of the impact of financial inclusion on economic growth, the World Bank argues that “such services must be provided responsibly and safely to the consumer, and sustainably to the provider.” Construed appropriately, financial inclusion has the potential to reduce poverty and inequality by helping disadvantaged groups to benefit from opportunities that otherwise would not have been available.

House Passes Bills to Boost Emerging Tech and Shore Up Cybersecurity of Electric Sector

A batch of bills aimed at improving the cybersecurity and reliability of the energy sector and informing the United States’ use of emerging technologies, such as blockchain and quantum computing, passed the House Tuesday and now head to the Senate for consideration. 

Here’s a rundown on what the bills do.

Grid Security Research and Development Act

With this bill, Reps. Ami Bera, D-Calif. and Randall Weber, R-Texas, propose that Congress put over $800 million within the next five years toward developing tools and resources to strengthen the cybersecurity and reliability of the electric grid. The legislation is meant to make the energy sector more resilient to cyberattacks and physical impacts associated with climate change, such as the recent wildfires on the West Coast.

It calls on the secretary of Energy to establish research and development plans working with the National Science Foundation and the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and
