It’s been a hell of a week for Tesla CEO Elon Musk: federal investigations, allegations of drug trafficking, and a tearful interview with the biggest newspaper in the world. The interview, which MKBHD promoted as "the most important video probably ever on my channel," took place August 15th, a week after Musk’s fateful "funding secured" tweet about taking Tesla private. Toward the beginning of the 17-minute interview, Musk said he hoped to scale production at Tesla and lower their design...
According to documents published this week, the company has applied for a patent entitled "Blockchain Systems and Methods for User Authentication." The abstract to the patent describes the project in more detail, stating that computer-implemented methods and systems are provided for blockchain-mediated user authentication and going on to list potential applications of a user system, which will include verification messages indicating that the root system successfully authenticated the user and including an authorization code for receiving, from the root system,...
If you’re a certain age, it’s likely that you’ve never given a second thought to buying a municipal bond or the process of bond buying, even if you’ve intuited, rightly, that’s it’s an intentionally opaque business. Yet there could be a big opportunity for startups, and for people looking for places to invest, and for cities with crumbling infrastructures, in disrupting the status quo — if only everyone starts playing closer attention.

Fred Chong, the Seymour Goodman Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago, will receive $3 million to lead the STAQ software team, bridging the gap between new architectures developed by the project and theoretical algorithms that apply quantum computing to chemistry, physics and other domains. Fred Chong’s contributions to STAQ will complement his leadership of the $10 million EPIQC (the Enabling Practical-scale Quantum Computation) project announced earlier this year. While the two projects share several researchers and a...
Journal of Power Sources – Demonstration of high current densities and extended cycling in the garnet Li7La3Zr2O12 solid electrolyte• Critical current densities as high as 6.0 mA cm−2 were demonstrated at 60 °C. • 702 mAh cm−2 total Li was plated at 60 °C with 3.0 mAh cm−2 per half cycle. By combining recent achievements in reducing interface resistance and optimizing microstructure, we demonstrate Li cycling at current densities competitive with Li-ion. LiLLZOLi cells are capable of cycling at up to 0.9 ± 0.7 mA cm−2, 3.8 ± 0.9 mA cm−2, and 6.0 ± 0.7 mA cm-2 at room...
According to a report by the American Cancer Society, an estimated 266,120 women will be newly diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States this year and (according to a 2016 estimate) can expect to pay between $60,000 and $134,000 on average for treatment and care. Cantú says that his mother’s second diagnosis was originally missed through standard screenings because her high breast density obscured the tumors from the X-ray. Following his mother’s experience, Cantú resolved to develop a way to improve...
