In this episode, we talk about a research study from MIT that estimates the carbon emissions associated with autonomous vehicles will match that currently produced by all of the data centers in the world along with how to address it.
Food safety programs are systems and procedures put in place to ensure that food products are safe for consumption. These programs aim to prevent foodborne illnesses by identifying and controlling hazards that may occur at any stage of the food production process.
The world needs educated children to help solve major challenges. But what does a well-rounded, effective education look like? There is scientific evidence to suggest that the key developmental benefit of play is an important part of a holistic education.
In this episode, we talk about how a system inspired by nature can successfully extract the hydrogen molecules from water using sunlight at almost the same efficiency as plants.
Study shows that if autonomous vehicles are widely adopted, hardware efficiency will need to advance rapidly to keep computing-related emissions in check.
In this episode, we talk about our favorite episodes from 2022, our success and failures, and our goals for the new year.
The Industrial Revolution began in Britain sometime around 1760. It ushered in a period where coal-fired steam engines powered increased mechanization and productivity and transformed a largely agrarian society into a manufacturing one.
Researchers at ETH Zurich and the Carnegie Institution for Science have shown how nitrogen fertiliser could be produced more sustainably. This is necessary not only to protect the climate, but also to reduce dependence on imported natural gas and to increase food security.
Combining Digital Twins with Artificial Intelligence (AI) decision-making technologies can transform agrifood production systems and supply chains – offering possible remedies to the problems of malnutrition, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and food waste, say researchers.
The natural resources around us represent the basis for all human activity on Earth. We use these resources to produce food, clean drinking water, clothes, electrical energy, and everything else we need to survive. But these resources are limited.
A consortium of Swiss research institutes has begun working on UrbanTwin to make an AI driven, ecologically sensitive model of the energy, water and waste systems the town of Aigle to help boost sustainability.
The global agricultural and farming industry is facing a perfect storm. Earlier this month, the world population hit eight billion for the first time, in the two weeks since it has grown another 1.5 million. That is a lot of extra mouths to feed when there are already 690 million people going hungry, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
During COP27 people across the world flew to Sharm El Sheikh to discuss action on climate change. Aviation is a crucial way to bring us together to tackle this challenge – but it is also a major contributor to the problem.
Cybernetics can help to create a safe, sustainable and responsible future in a complex world.
