CIA Just Invested In Woolly Mammoth Resurrection Tech

As a rapidly advancing climate emergency turns the planet ever hotter, the Dallas-based biotechnology company Colossal Biosciences has a vision: “To see the Woolly Mammoth thunder upon the tundra once again.” Founders George Church and Ben Lamm have already racked up an impressive list of high-profile funders and investors, including Peter Thiel, Tony Robbins, Paris Hilton, Winklevoss Capital — and, according to the public portfolio its venture capital arm released this month, the CIA.

Colossal says it hopes to use advanced genetic sequencing to resurrect two extinct mammals — not just the giant, ice age mammoth, but also a mid-sized marsupial known as the thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, that died out less than a century ago. on its websitethe company vows: “Combining the science of genetics with the business of discovery, we endeavor to jumpstart nature’s ancestral heartbeat.”

In-Q-Tel, its new investor, is registered as a nonprofit venture capital

Internal Pentagon Report Says China Is Main Beneficiary of Key US Technology Research Efforts

A confidential internal Department of Defense (DOD) report concludes that “China, not the United States, is the ultimate beneficiary of DoD and other [U.S. government] research investments,” according to Mon. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa).

“Washington is spending billions of your tax dollars every year to hypothetically achieve technological dominance over communist China, but the ultimate beneficiary of that effort may be … China,” Ernst said in a Sept. 28 statements made available to The Epoch Times.

“That is the shocking conclusion of a Department of Defense (DoD) review that found China was stealing technology developed in the United States by exploiting the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.”

The Iowa Republican described the process by which research efforts intended to help strengthen US national security actually ends up benefitting the Chinese Communist Party.

“This is how it works: American companies receiving taxpayer assistance for technology

2 Artificial-intelligence growth stocks shaping the future of technology

Innovative Technologies Have regularly reshapled the world. In the last few decades, invention like the personal computers, the internet, and the smartphone have dramatically enhanced human productivity, while creating trendous wealth in the processes.

And Artificial Intelligence (AI) promises to be the next transformative technology. In fact, Research Company McKinsey estimates that Ai Could Bould Global Economic Output by 16% (OR $ 13 Trillion) Between 2018 and 2030.

Companies Like Nvidia (NVDA -2.30%) and Lemonade (LMND -2.19%) could be major benefits of that trend because both are using ai to shape the future of technology.

1. Nvidia: The Gold Standard in AI Infrastructure

In 1999, Nvidia inventoryed a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) that revolutionized the gaming and entertainment industries with its ability to render realistic computer graphics. But GPUS have also become the accelerators of choice for complex data-center workloads such as scientific computing and ai. Today, Nvidia

‘Top secret’ drone-blocking technology ‘will be deployed in London for Queen’s funeral’

A no-fly zone has been put in place over London, with security forces deploying cutting edge technology to stop drones flying near the Queen’s funeral.

In what is set to be one of the biggest security operations in British history, Scotland Yard is pulling out all the stops to ensure today’s service and procession go off without at hitch.

At least 10,000 police officers, including 2,000 from around the UK, will be guarding central London and the 23-mile route to Windsor Castle today.

On the ground many roads and bridges will be shut to traffic, and 23 miles of barriers have been put up to control crowds that are expected to reach into tens of thousands.

In the skies no chances are being taken, with the Civil Aviation Authority putting a no-fly zone in place over the capital – this will include the prohibition of drones.

To help enforce this

China has returned helium-3 from the moon, opening door to future technology

The Chinese Chang’e 5 mission has returned a new mineral from the lunar surface. Chinese scientists call the mineral “Changesite-(Y).” The mineral has been described by the state-operated news agency Xinhau as a “kind-of colorless transparent columnar crystal.” Also, the Chinese claim that the new mineral contains helium-3, an isotope that many scientists have connected as a potential fuel for future fusion reactors.

The crystal mineral was exceedingly tiny, about one-tenth the size of a human hair. The new mineral is of immense interest to lunar geologists. The helium-3 that it contains has the potential to change the world.

Scientists have known the lunar surface contains deposits of helium-3 since the Apollo program. The main advantage of helium-3 fusion over fusion using tritium and deuterium, isotopes of hydrogen, is that it doesn’t create radioactive neutrons. Its main disadvantage is that achieving a controlled fusion reaction with helium-3
