first_imgThe Internet of Things (IoT) envisions a world scattered with devices and sensors that collect and transmit data about almost anything. But a bottleneck to the vision is being able to keep these devices powered for long periods of time.  Batteries lose charge quickly and the maintenance costs of battery replacement in the field for many devices is too expensive.Increasingly some of the larger devices, meters and sensors in the field are being powered by solar.  For smaller devices, new techniques are being investigated. This area of research is being called “energy harvesting“.  Scientists look at many different alternative external sources of energy, including solar, thermal, wind, and kinetic energy. The global market for energy harvesting devices is expected to be $4.2 billion by 2019.As an example of mechanical energy harvesting, some scientists are researching how energy from human movement can be used to power smartphones and wearable devices. The army, for example, is investigating devices that strap to a soldier’s leg that captures mechanical energy as the soldier walks. Noel Soto, a project engineer at the Army Natick Soldier Research Center, said that “we are converting the movement of the knees when you walk into useful power. We have found out through studies that soldiers are carrying a heavy load and a lot of that weight, 16 to 20 pounds for a 72-hour mission, is due to batteries.”Just the movements of tapping and scrolling on your smartphone might be able to produce enough energy that can feed back into the phone to power it.  Nelson Sepulveda, associate professor at Michigan State University, said that “what I foresee, relatively soon, is the capability of not having to charge your cell phone for an entire week, for example, because that energy will be produced by your movement.”last_img read more

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Related Posts Tags:#Algorithm#Facebook#Facebook News Feed#News Feed#social media#social networks david nield The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Another Facebook News Feed tweak has been attracting attention this week, not for the first (or last) time. In addition to three significant changes, it brings yet another reminder that we’re all at the mercy of its algorithms. Whether you’re a million-dollar publishing empire or a mother with some baby pictures, it’s largely up to Facebook just how many other people are going to get to see your post.The New New News FeedAbout those News Feed changes. First, if yours happens to be a little on the sparse side (did all your friends leave for Snapchat?), Facebook will now show you more posts from the contacts you do have rather than let you reach the “end” of your feed.Second, Facebook will now favor updates “posted directly by the friends you care about” in your News Feed. If there are certain people you interact with more often, you’ll see more posts by them. If you spend a lot of time clicking and commenting on links from the New York Times, you’ll see more material from that page, too.Third and last, you won’t see as many posts and comments from your friends on pages you’re not connected with. Uncle Ed might love Coca-Cola’s Facebook presence, but unless you’ve also liked the Coca-Cola page, you won’t see Uncle Ed’s love-in with the sugary soda drink quite as much as you did before.With online publishers relying so heavily on Facebook for traffic, tweaks like this merit close study, since they can send referral traffic soaring or plummeting. The third part of this latest reconfiguration has been widely seen as a blow for sites and brands looking for as many eyeballs as possible, though it’s going to be a while before we know the full effects of the changes.Whose Feed Is It Anyway?Social is diversifying, and so is Facebook.No sooner has the virtual ink dried on an analysis of one News Feed update than the next one comes along to replace it. Last August, Facebook went to war against spammy, clickbait-style articles, a move that would have pleased pretty much everyone except those who make their living from such pieces.Facebook’s also exploring the possibility of hosting content from key publishers itself rather than linking out to it. When you attract the attention of more than 1.4 billion users, then you get to call the shots on what gets priority and what doesn’t.With each of us having so many connections on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg and his band of engineers have to take some editorial control over what pops up in the News Feed—a flat stream of everything that was happening in sequential order wouldn’t be much fun at all.But it’s interesting to weigh the question of exactly what users want to see. Why do we log into Facebook in 2015? Is it more for updates from friends or links of interest? Facebook is always keen to emphasize that its tweaks are based on user feedback, and our tastes are always changing—hence the re-emergence of instant messenger-style apps.News Feed algorithm updates will always generate plenty of comment and discussion from publishers, but they say as much about social networking and our virtual relationships with our friends as they do about the future of news.Lead image courtesy of Facebook; photo of Mark Zuckerberg by Owen Thomas for ReadWritelast_img read more
