Is China Leading In Building An AI Driven Future With 5G?

5G will be the thing of the coming years. If I’m understanding what is really going on, 5G can actually allow the plethora of devices to communicate with each other effortlessly. A quick search on Google yields that 5G is 20 times faster than 4G. Whether this is true or not, one thing is true is that devices can speak to each other way faster than before. This opens up more innovation and infrastructure demands.


The video above shows that China is heading in the direction where more machines will replace humans in labor-intensive jobs. The day when we need an extra pair of human hands may be over sooner than later because smarter machines with AI capability can actually think for themselves and carry themselves in jobs effortlessly. Nonetheless, AI machines without 5G will be like a pony just starts learning how to walk.

5G will allow AI machines to transfer data fast and constantly so that things can speed up even more for decision making, planning, communication and so much more. I think with 5G, self-driving car technology is much more believable since you can have many self-driving cars detect each other easier at once with reliable faster 5G data transfer. Furthermore, smart highways and roads are going to get better and more fitting for self-driving cars because 5G will allow faster communication between the cars and the traffic infrastructures.

If you’re guessing I don’t know what I’m talking about, you may be right. After all, 5G is so new and I haven’t seen it firsthand or use it in real life. Nonetheless, according to the information I could Google, 5G is 20 times faster than 4G. Right now I’m using 4G on my smartphone but I think 4G is already quite fast. I can imagine how crazier it could get if I got 5G.

A day ago I briefly encountered an article which described how 5G could destroy the need for the cloud. Then I briefly read over the article’s comments that displeased how the article’s author was too lacking of knowledge since the commenters didn’t see how 5G could destroy the cloud since the cloud is about centralization of data storage.

Personally though, I don’t see how centralizing storage like the cloud could go away since data redundancy is always a priority, especially in the age of AI which is driven by data. Of course, all bets are off when AI becomes self-conscious since such AI needs no human data to drive its own logic. Until then, the cloud stays important.

I also think that 5G could allow the decentralization of networks to become a thing too! How come? Local devices and storages will be able to talk faster to any other storage and device across the world — destroying the needs of having to plan and engineer a network that is catering to the importance of distance. Although we already in the age of information where distance isn’t as relevant as the 19th century for communication, but 5G may make distance even more irrelevant when it comes to data communication.

Basically, instead of waiting for minutes for a movie to be downloaded onto your device, you may only have to wait for a few seconds to have your movie when you use the 5G network. 5G data can cross secure communication channel much faster and more reliable since faster data transfer allows faster data integrity check and whatnot. Perhaps, we could see shopping, banking, and other important financial related activities across the world on the world wide web to be more reliable and faster — better experience overall!

In summary, I think 5G will be awesome! I would love to see not only cellular network but also home network to be able to transfer speed that is as fast as 5G or better. This way, everything will be on the same pace and everyone will be using faster Internet speed. What’s not to like when you can get a whole 4K movie to be downloaded in a few seconds, right?

China Amazing Growth Pushes American Companies To Go To China

Foreigners are trying to break into China’s market everyday, but not everything is easy with China.  Meanwhile Chinese most creative and big companies are trying to go global.  When modern China was young, she could not be so innovative since everything had gotten to be learned and copied.  Fortunately, China has been growing so fast that she could fast-track her learning and copying stage to innovation stage.  Right now as China tries to go global, she is also trying to become evermore innovative.  She invests in innovative talents in all sorts of fields such as industrial designs, brand building, and whatnot.  As China’s economy continues to grow bigger than ever, more foreign companies are vigorously trying to break into Chinese market to grab the ferocious growth of the world’s most populous country.  It seems American companies are also competing with other foreign companies in trying to capture the Chinese market.  Check out the video right after the break to see how American companies are trying to make their fortunes in China.

The Great Experimentation

The world is getting smaller not because of a freak accident which shrinks the earth, but it’s because of how us humans, across all races, have begun to utilize technology such as the Internet to explore culture differences among world cultures.  As time goes on, I think more people will try to experience the culture differences among world cultures even more; technology of the future will make the whole process fluid.  As cross culture experiences become the great experimentation, will this change world politics?

Perhaps, one day, whether we like it or not, the great experimentation will become the norm to the point that politics among countries might be of little differences and more of the same.  Politics among the world might find it is hard to not stick their nose in each other’s politics.  Perhaps, self-ruled nations’ sovereignties will become less important?  What if we take the pessimistic point of view, will the great experimentation present a much more chaotic world order where cultural differences might instigate hatreds and violences?

Of course, nobody knows how the future will turn out, but we can pick and choose a trend to foolishly make a prediction of what the future might be.  Nonetheless, I think the great experimentation is already happening as we speak.  The advancement of technology is transforming humans’ earthly society as we speak.  Society of today is behaving quite different from the society of the past, but tomorrow will be even of a greater difference.

Technology such as the Internet has already allowed us humans to either isolate ourselves from real life experiences or vice versa, depending on how an individual uses the Internet.  One example would be, she wants to meet more strangers therefore she joins an Internet social circle on a popular dating website.  Another example would be, he is an introvert therefore he plays games all day and only interacts with online gamers through voice chat.

In politics though, I think if more people are going to prioritize peace over war, more people of the world will sing a similar tune and play a similar beat, therefore more people will have a familiar political point of view.  The question is, can technology go so far to the point of instigating peoples of the world to forgo political differences and melt their cultural experiences into one?  Will extreme violence come first before the great experimentation becomes the norm?

Whether one likes the idea of a smaller world or not, it’s already happening.  The ultimate fear is that, it might be happening in a very apocalyptic way.  If the world is getting smaller in a good way, not detrimentally affecting the peoples of the world, peace might reign supreme and more good things will come, politically or not.  Thanks to technology?

RC Car Runs And Charges On Water Fuel Source

Whenever I see this I go crazy!  OK, what on earth I’m dabbling about?  Crazy what?  It’s about the RC car which runs on water.  No, it’s not running over the water like a magician’s illusion, but it’s a miracle still to see RC car uses water as a fuel source.  This sort of nagging me why we can’t do the same for real cars?  Imagine how much more energy independence we can be as a society if we can use water as a fuel source!

OK, I already hear that some people might just go crazy over this idea in a very bad way.  Some people might not like this idea at all since water supposes to be a very important fuel source for humans, therefore we should not use it as a fuel source for cars.  For an example, foods should not be a source of fuel for anything but humans.

Nonetheless, I don’t suggest that water should be the only fuel source for cars.  Instead, I think our cars should be adaptable in a way that our cars should be able to be powered by many fuel sources in a combination or not.  For an example, if gasoline is available, then a car should be able to move about with just gasoline fuel source, but when gasoline fuel source got low, it should also be able to switch on its battery fuel source or water fuel source or whatever fuel source (or switching on all fuel source — not hybrid but it’s like many-many-brid).

Anyhow, I think if we’re too depending on a single fuel source for our whatever needs, we will be in trouble since all fuel sources do have their limitations.  Even the sun would die when its fuel sources run out!  Check out the video which shows an RC car that can be charged and ran on water fuel source right after the break.  By the way, this RC car could also be controlled by a smartphone app.

Fiction Now, But Humans Tend To Realize Dreams! Androidize The Planet Earth And Beyond?

Imagine one day, the animation that is being depicted within YouTube’s “Kara: a PS3 new technology” video becomes real, what will be of such a future?  Out it leaps into reality where the line between a human and android becomes really blurry!  Of course, humans, the master of the planet earth with ambition to colonize the universe, will fear of androids’ potentials.  The obvious fear of them all would be the androids enslave the former masters of theirs.  Of course, at the moment, we humans do not have such fears yet since our computers, robots, and all do not know the difference between what make life bitter and what make life sweeter.  What if the automatons to become so self-aware?  Will their enlightenment drive the current planet earth master to the brink of The Matrix (the movie)?

Perhaps, the humans will get very lucky for awhile as all androids will obediently be subservient to their masters even though they know what it means to be a slave.  Perhaps, humans are so inventive to a point of having androids bear seeds so fruits can come to life to continue the long line of planet earth master?  Seeds and fruits? Imagine android, smart or not, self-aware or not, be able to carry a female productive system at all time as female eggs (in relation to human reproductive system) were preemptively prepared for a human creation.  Imagine humans will go as far as to prepare the sperms inside so called male android just so it would be able to copulate with so called female android that has eggs in order for a human creation process to begin.  Perhaps, humans become so lazy to a point that they will prefer androids to make babies altogether.  Sex acts will only be reserved for entertainment purpose.  Since sex acts become for entertainment only, it might not matter a human will copulate with an android or just another human.

Then there is this question, what if scenario… with advance android surrogate reproductive system, will the human reproduction process becomes evermore perfect (less of a hassle and painless in relation of a human mother has to go through to bear a child) and healthier?  What if it is, what will be the side effects in term of soul searching?  Will religions be against this?  Can abortion be questionable when androids become the surrogate mothers and fathers?

The conclusion is, everything about this is very intriguing to us all.  We will never know android fiction will ever come true.  If this sort of fiction to become the reality of tomorrow, human society will transform beyond our current imagination.  Perhaps, whatever humans choose to believe and take action for, fiction will eventually materialize.  Few examples are, the moon landing, nuclear power and weapons, and computing.  In the end, I think we all should be very careful about what we wish for and what actions we want to take upon according to our wishes and imagination.  Once the Pandora’s box is opened, it’s really hard to close if not impossible!

Will We Be Able To Zip Around Cities On Hover Bikes As If We’re The Jedi On Speeder Bikes?

One day, we may be able to hover like a young Jedi on a speeder bike.  OK, I’m not spilling garbage or idiotic dream, because a man in Australia is building a hover bike which flies up to 173 mile per hour and at 3,000 meter height.  Check out the source article right after the break for more detail on the man and his hover bike creation.
