The energy ecosystem should move to make the ‘energy internet’ a reality

These are just a few of the myriad ways in which an open, any-to-any energy internet will promote innovation, stimulate competition and generate big wins. No one can predict exactly what those big wins will be, but there will surely be many, and they will accrue to the benefit of all.

That’s why even without a crystal ball, we should all commit ourselves to digitalization, decentralization, decarbonization, democratization and diversity. In so doing, we’ll build the energy internet together, and enable a fair, affordable and clean energy future.

Digitalization of Energy in the IIoT Era

In Tesla’s VPP vision, digital twin models represent various Internet of Things (IoT) elements. The digital twin modelling software is based on two essential open-source projects: Kubernetes and Akka. Breck clarified that the combination of Akka and Kubernetes is essential as the first can handle more major failures the second can handle minor (or in need of fine approach).

We definitely live through interesting times and it seems that the future is much closer than it looked before, mainly thanks to companies dedicating much effort to innovate and crate breakthroughs. There is a saying about modern problems needing modern solutions, but this does not necessarily apply in this case. We have an old problem and solutions coming from the future; we just hope that they will soon collide and provide the best possible outcome for the planet and Humanity as a whole.

The 5 Main Features of Web 3.0

It’s easier to identify the major differences between Web 1.0 ( users passively consult web pages and for the most part don’t participate in generating content) and Web 2.0 ( users create content and interact with sites and with each other through social media, forums, etc.). Instead, with Web 3.0, the differences are not as clearly defined. The term, coined by the reporter John Markoff of The New York Times in 2006, refers to a new evolution of the web, its third generation, and includes specific innovations and practices.

Below are 5 main features that can help us define Web 3.0:

  1. Semantic Web
  2. Artificial Intelligence
  3. 3D Graphics
  4. Connectivity
  5. Ubiquity

Speeding Up Search: The Challenge of Multiple Bottlenecks

I read “Search at Scale Shows ~30,000X Speed Up.” I have been down this asphalt road before, many times in fact. The problem with search and retrieval is that numerous bottlenecks exist; for example, dealing with exceptions (content which the content processing system cannot manipulate).

I wish to list some of the speed bumps which the write does not adequately address or, in some cases, acknowledge:
