World Water Day: Satellites Are Key to Addressing Global Water Scarcity

On March 22 we celebrate World Water Day. It is a day when those who are lucky to enjoy daily clean water on demand, often taken it for granted, should stop for a moment to think about those millions of people who still suffer from water shortage. Today, we also have a look at how satellites help from space addressing water scarcity in the hope that this knowledge can provide ideas for solutions that can be implemented in the near future.

VR and Holographic Technology Make The Star Trek Holodeck A Reality

Holographic technology has been maturing rapidly in the past few years. The Star Trek holodeck, or Holographic Environment Simulator (HES) might not be too far into the future. Holography is based on the principle of interference. Holograms capture the interference pattern between two or more beams of coherent laser light. A hologram is a photographic recording of a light field. This is used to display a three-dimensional image of the holographic subject. Holograms can be seen without the aid

IBM's New Artificial Intelligence Can Make Humans Better Decision Makers

According to IBM Research, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to make humans listen better to other points of view, think, reflect, and reason better. Hence, humans can make more informed decisions based on a deeper understanding and analysis of a given topic. In other words, AI can help humans become more aware of different perspectives and their valuable contribution to a discussion. This broader vision can enable better actionable decisions. IBM Research began its work on Projec
