November 4th 2015 in Uncategorized No Comments The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association NanoBCA would like to congratulate the Office of Science and Technology Policy on the Nanotechnology Inspired Grand Challenge for Future Computing I would like to share with you the following announcement A Nanotechnology Inspired Grand Challenge for Future Computing By Lloyd Whitman Randy Bryant and Tom Kalil October 20 2015 Today the White House is announcing a grand challenge to develop transformational computing capabilities by combining innovations in multiple scientific disciplines In June the Office of Science and Technology Policy issued a Request for Information seeking suggestions for Nanotechnology Inspired Grand Challenges for the Next Decade After considering over 100 responses OSTP is excited to announce the following grand challenge that addresses three Administration priorities the National Nanotechnology Initiative the National Strategic Computing Initiative NSCI and the BRAIN initiative Create a new type of computer that can proactively interpret and learn from data solve unfamiliar problems using what it has learned and operate with the energy efficiency of the human brain While it continues to be a national priority to advance conventional digital computing which has been the engine of the information technology revolution current technology falls far short of the human brain in terms of both the brain s sensing and problem solving abilities and its low power consumption Many experts predict that fundamental physical limitations will prevent transistor technology from ever matching these twin characteristics We are therefore challenging the nanotechnology and computer science communities to look beyond the decades old approach to computing based on the Von Neumann architecture as implemented with transistor based processors and chart a new path that will continue the rapid pace of innovation beyond the next decade There are growing problems facing the Nation that the new computing capabilities envisioned in this challenge might address from delivering individualized treatments for disease to allowing advanced robots to work safely alongside people to proactively identifying and blocking cyber intrusions To meet this challenge major breakthroughs are needed not only in the basic devices that store and process information and the amount of energy they require but in the way a computer analyzes images sounds and patterns interprets and learns from data and identifies and solves problems Many of these breakthroughs will require new kinds of nanoscale devices and materials integrated into three dimensional systems and may take a decade or more to achieve These nanotechnology innovations will have to be developed in close coordination with new computer architectures and will likely be informed by our growing understanding of the brain a remarkable fault tolerant system that consumes less power than an incandescent light bulb Recent progress in developing novel low power methods of sensing and computation including neuromorphic magneto electronic and analog systems combined with dramatic advances in neuroscience and cognitive sciences lead us to believe that this ambitious challenge is now within our reach The Federal government is driving many of these initial advances through programs such as Expeditions in Computing and Robust Intelligence at the National Science Foundation NSF

    its systems MillerCoors now uses 3 6 barrels 113 gallons of water on average The going rate for water in Chicago is 2 89 per 1 000 gallons which means the 0 5 barrel or 15 75 gallons difference would amount to savings of about 0 20 cents per barrel which doesn t sound like a lot but over millions of barrels it really adds up That s a testament to our employees a significant improvement of our operations and a new benchmark for the industry said MillerCoors Director of Sustainability Kim Marotta Our goal is to reduce water consumption by 15 from 2008 to 2015 One of the brewery s approaches involves implementing short interval control SIC SIC is a best practice methodology developed to analyze performance on an ongoing basis and support long term improvements Marotta explained When we put SIC into place employees became much more engaged As a result of this and other initiatives we ve been saving tens of millions of gallons of water annually in our plants Another approach with even more significant results is reducing water needed for barley agri production That irrigation accounts for about 90 of the overall water consumption attributed to an average bottle of beer To accomplish that reduction the brewery worked with The Nature Conservancy in Idaho s Silver Creek Valley We worked with one farm in particular and have saved over 270 million gallons of water to date approximately what one brewery would use in two months Marotta said One procedure that MillerCoors implemented was that it changed irrigation sprinkler heads which were designed so barley farmers could lower them physically to reduce evaporation In an Earth Day ceremony this year at National Geographic headquarters in Washington DC the U S Water Alliance presented one of its three U S Water Prizes to MillerCoors for its work with The Nature Conservancy and the Idaho Silver Creek barley farmers More barley crop per water drop is the way I like to characterize how MillerCoors is leading the way with footprinting stewardship and education said U S Water Alliance President Ben Grumbles MillerCoors deserves the 2013 U S Water Prize for more than the efficiency changes in their facilities It s the innovative reach beyond and up the agriculture supply chain that caught our attention In all they ve managed a 20 reduction in agricultural water use Congratulations to MillerCoors on its achievements Kudos to these great corporate citizens for reducing their water consumption WATER NEWS Toilet To Tap Water Purification Coming To South Bay CBS Billions of gallons of sewage flow into NY waters The Bellingham Herald Crowdfunding Will Make 2013 The Year Of The Gold Rush Forbes Chemicals that break down water contaminants pass safety test R D Magazine Here are 2 recent articles posted on Water Wise Our Water Counts Blog Enabling the Next Generation Operator In Today s Connected World Written by Terry Biederman Can Facebook Help the Water Industry Written by Kyle Reissner We
