WHAT IS IT?
Excellent candidate for waste-heat reuse in industrial settings

WHY IMPORTANT
Scientists have found a common substance (a layered manganese oxide mineral containing potassium ions and crystal water. This mineral is quite similar in its composition to birnessite, which is commonly found on the Earth's surface).  that can reversibly and rapidly store and release relatively large amounts of low-grade heat without decomposing. The research could lead to a more efficient reuse of industrial waste heat.

WHAT IS IT?

Asking computers a question and getting an answer in natural language can hide complexity behind a veneer of authority that is not deserved.

WHY IMPORTANT

Language models are mindless mimics that do not understand what they are saying—so why do we pretend they’re experts?

WHAT IS IT?

Way of teaching computers to do tasks

WHY IMPORTANT
n the past, to do anything computers relied on detailed, step-by-step instructions written by a person. But with machine learning, computers pick up new skills on their own, using examples or experience. This makes machine learning a powerful form of artificial intelligence or AI. A

WHAT IS IT?

AI solutions are not just a key investment opportunity for large corporations but also a major contributor to addressing countless day-to-day problems in our lives.

WHY IMPORTANT
Human beings came first, and the machine followed. As long as our passion for growth and our need for perfection is alive, machine learning algorithms will continue to improve and become increasingly accurate, helping us achieve seemingly impossible success and accuracy rates.

WHAT IS IT?
Minimize human intervention and allow machines to operate independently.

WHY IMPORTANT

To date, AI has gone through three phases of its development. Descriptive analysis to answer what happened, diagnostic analytics to answer why it happened and predictive analytics to answer what might happen next. The analytical and forecasting power of AI has increased tremendously, but it won’t stop there.

The problem with the current generation of AI is it needs to receive data from humans. This reduces the problem-solving power of artificial intelligence in dealing with new events. There is no denying that AI has made it easier for humans to predict the future. But, dealing with future events, like another pandemic, needs a more powerful AI.

WHAT IS IT?
More than 140,000 U.S. employees surveyed since the onset of the pandemic. These insights paint a vivid picture of how different offices will be and the unique dynamics of a highly flexible workplace.

WHY IMPORTANT

  1. Where are employees working now, and where will they work in the future?
  2. What happens if organizations do not support remote flexibility?
  3. Why do many remote-ready employees prefer hybrid work?
  4. What will the future workweek look like?
  5. How can we make hybrid work more productive and engaging?
