Monthly Exponential Technology Update - April 2020

Hi everyone,

I am interested in Exponential Technology and so collect noteworthy related news stories and videos. My process is that every Monday morning I spend several hours looking back during the previous week and I place these stories in the Exponential Technology section of my website. I then identify the top three stories and send them to my subscribers on a Wednesday. If you would like to receive this then please register on the website.

One of the things I have started to do is put together a presentation and video on news stories and videos that have stood out to me during the month. I have done this for February, March and now April.

Exponential Technology Update - April 2020.

So here is a 25 minute video highlighting the following stories:

  • The race to 3D-print 4 million COVID-19 test swabs a week.

  • Scientists develop AI that can turn brain activity into text.

  • How Microsoft Teams will use AI to filter out typing, barking and other noise from video calls.

  • Artificial intelligence is evolving all by itself.

  • National Geographic debuts Instagram AR experience for April Earth Day issue.

  • Surprise! 2020 is not the year for Self-driving cars

  • The army is building drones that can be fired from grenade launcher.

  • That very good robotic dog is now helping hospitals fight the Cornonavirus.

  • This genius new type of solar energy cell can be used in windows
