Australia’s report on agtech confirms technology can lead to a fertile future

The horizon scanning report on the future of agricultural technologies has identified how adopting new technologies — such as sensor, robotic, artificial intelligence (AI), data, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and distributed ledger — could improve the sector’s productivity, diversity, and profitability.

The Future of Agriculture Technologies report [PDF] was released by the Australian Council of Learned Academics (ACOLA) on Tuesday, after it was commissioned by Australia’s chief scientist Alan Finkel, on behalf of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), to undertake the project.

“Australia’s diverse agriculture, fisheries, and forestry sector is a AU$69 billion industry … however, reaching the government’s goal of AU$100 billion by 2030 will likely require more than just incremental technological advancements,” Finkel said.

“Historically, Australian producers have been rapid adopters of innovation, and these emerging technologies will help our agriculture sector to transform and tackle current and future challenges.”

The report highlighted how the deployment of technologies,

Japan’s iQPS to update technology for future radar satellites

SAN FRANCISCO – Like many of its western counterparts, Japan’s Institute for Q-shu Pioneers of Space (iQPS) has ambitious plans for its Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) constellation.

By 2025, iQPS plans to operate a 36-satellite constellation to gather data and imagery with a resolution of one meter “of almost any point in the world within 10 minutes and to conduct fixed-point observations of particular areas once every 10 minutes,” iQPS spokeswoman Yuki Ariyoshi told SpaceNews by email. With that resolution, customers can obtain frequent imagery of land and buildings in addition  to observing moving objects like livestock, vehicles and vessels, she added.

IQPS launched its first 100-kilogram SAR satellite, Izanagi, in November 2019 on an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. The firm’s second satellite, Izanami, is scheduled to launch as early as December on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket as part of Spaceflight’s SXRS-3 rideshare mission.

The surprising future of vaccine technology

LOU REESE: The largest gains in human longevity ever are debatably attributed to vaccine technology.

The antibiotic revolution was very important, but vaccine technology is currently over 6.2 billion people in the world have been vaccinated right now. These are the most widely distributed medications and solutions that have ever been brought to mankind. And the consequence was that we really dramatically improved our quality of life and our longevity. We gave people better, healthier, longer lives.

LARRY BRILLIANT: Vaccines are the best thing science has ever given us. It saved hundreds of millions of children’s lives. It eradicated smallpox. It has reduced the population explosion. I know that’s pretty paradoxical but as long as there are vaccines children will not die as they did when I was in India. There were places that 50 percent of kids died before the age of five. When that happens parents have many

EV startup Faraday Future in talks to go public through SPAC merger

By Ben Klayman

DETROIT (Reuters) – Electric vehicle startup Faraday Future aims to close a deal soon to go public through a reverse merger with a special-purchase acquisition company (SPAC), its chief executive said on Monday.

“We are working on such a deal … and will be able to announce something hopefully quite soon,” Carsten Breitfeld said of the possibility of a SPAC deal.

Breitfeld declined to say who Faraday is negotiating with or when a deal would close.

A SPAC is a shell company that raises money through an initial public offering to buy an operating entity, typically within two years.

SPACs have emerged as a quick route to the stock market for companies, particularly auto technology startups, and have proven popular with investors seeking to echo Tesla Inc’s <TSLA.O> high stock valuation.

Breitfeld, who joined the Los Angeles-based company as CEO last year, also said the company would

How should we think about the far future of technology?

When talking about the future of technology, how far can be we look ahead? Fifty years? Thirty years? 

According to technologist and anthropologist Genevieve Bell, fifteen years is the maximum — or we’re entering the realm of science fiction.

Genevieve is the kind of person you’d want to be stuck on a deserted island with. Not only is she a brilliant technologist with countless juicy anecdotes to share; she also knows how to detract water from frogs, an aboriginal survival skill she picked up as a child while living in central Australia with her anthropologist mother.

Genevieve has always been fascinated with how people interact with technologies. In one of her past projects, she “excavated” peoples’ cars to help understand what their cars meant to them. 

Not surprisingly, this very much depends on social and cultural context. Car owners in Singapore often keep a red envelope with cash in their
