Five Things Tech: Climate Change, Weird Particle, Golden Age for Medicine, AI Training, Net Neutrality
There's so much going on in Tech. Read this now to stay in the know.
Hi and welcome to Five Things Tech!
This newsletter brings you five stories from the world of tech every week. We have entered a time where tech development accelerates like crazy and each week there’s so much new stuff we should know about. Otherwise it will be so hard for us to understand what’s going on right now, let alone understand what will happen in the future.
I have been working in tech for over 20 years and it still continues to excite me and keeps me curious. And of course I’m always looking for the next big thing. :)
“In short, advanced computing is the most effective tool we have to temper AI’s carbon addiction. With it, we can slow the creep of climate change.“ - well, that sounds easy. Interesting how we can always find a positive way to look at tech. At least I can.
I’m always hesitant when Microsoft says they came up with an innovative new development, because I find most of their products utterly unusable. And they also hate me back (looking at you, teams!). Unfortunately I didn’t pay attention to physics in school, so I cannot really comment on this development. But this sounds really fascinating: a weird new particle!
The research on new drugs to treat various deseases really pushes forward. So hopefully we will be able to fight cancer for good. I’m just still not sure that drugs like Ozempic are a good idea.
A huge problem will be how LLM can be fed with the right data - data that is not generated by AI, but by humans. And it’s about more than training the AI model that humans do not have six fingers.
A long time ago I thought net neutrality was finally accepted as the standard, but telcos keep on trying to punch holes into net neutrality, which will curb innovation and make internet access more expensive.
