Nokia Bell Labs will begin building the bespoke LTE/4G network and aims to have it deployed by late 2022.
NASA researchers have developed new deep learning techniques powered by Nvidia GPUs that can understand what’s happening beneath the sun’s surface and predict earth-damaging solar flares.
The intense heat created by our nearest star creates a boiling reaction which makes its surface bubbly. These bubbles (or granules) are visible when magnified through telescopic images and offer an indication of what’s happening beneath the sun’s outer layer.
Companies are being asked to share ideas on how 5G terrestrial and space technology could be used to support the UK’s logistics businesses.

Lenovo and Intel have announced they have collaborated on a supercomputer for one of the world’s leading blackhole research teams.
The Flatiron Institute, located in New York City, is using high-performance computing (HPC) clusters provided by the two companies to support AI-powered research in astrophysics, quantum physics and computational mathematics. To give you a flavour of the institute’s pedigree, it recently helped prove Einstein’s theory of general relativity by discovering that black holes ‘ring’ like a bell.
OneWeb, a startup that aims to deliver broadband globally via a fleet of micro-satellites, has launched the first commercial service of its space-based internet service.
The London-based startup, which closed a $1.25 billion funding round in March, will begin delivering ‘fiber-like’ connectivity to 48 percent of the Arctic in 2020 and plans to supply full coverage to every part of the Arctic Circle by early 2021.
