Cannabis Crosses Paths With AI
The landscape of technology has changed drastically following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Now more than ever, we’re leaning on technology to help solve issues facing the world.
Between AI tech, Battery tech, and cybersecurity threats, read below for everything I have my eye on this week…
1. Cannabis Crosses Paths With AI
AI tech and cannabis are both rapidly growing industries, and they’re now starting to intertwine.
While combining tech with agriculture isn’t exactly a new practice, these applications could provide massive benefits for cannabis farmers.
Most recently, cannabis farmers have been turning to AI to help replicate quality results in their grow rooms.
2. Robots Pick Up Undesired Jobs
All over the country, restaurants are having a tough time filling positions following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Struggling to find workers, a Texas restaurant owner reached out to robotics firm American Robotech to see if they offered any solutions.
Within a day, American Robotech had mapped the layout of the restaurant and had robots taking orders.
3. Facebook and Ray-Ban Team Up on New Smart Glasses
Augmented reality smart glasses have been tried and failed before.
This time, Facebook is the latest company to take on a smart glass project.
Many other tech giants previously ran into issues of price and design, making their glasses a hard sell to customers.
4. Big Battery Capacity in a Little Package
Battery technology is one of the hotter topics in today’s tech landscape.
And given that batteries will be an essential part of all emerging tech, it makes sense that many companies are racing to produce the most efficient and long-lasting battery possible.
Last Wednesday, California startup Sila Nanotechnologies revealed a battery it claims is stronger than existing batteries. All without compromise on life cycle and safety.
5. Hundreds of Millions of Dollars Expected to be Spent on Cybersecurity
Credit rating company Moody will be investing about $250 million to help determine cybersecurity risks that face the largest companies in the US.
Following recent high-profile security breaches, the Biden administration is also urging companies to be more transparent about the security of their software.
To a bright future,
