Initially, the Continuum feature was reserved only for the flagship models of Microsoft smartphones, namely the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL. The manufacturer, however, decided that limiting it to only two devices was a bad idea, so he announced he would support not only his own flagship models, but also other devices on the platform, including those from other companies.
Continuum is one of Microsoft's new innovations for the Windows 10 Mobile platform, which significantly expands the functionality of smartphones with this system, turning them into standard PCs. This option allows you to connect your mobile device to a large screen, and then connect the keyboard and mouse to the device, thus acquiring the functionality of a standard PC.
Initially, the Redmond company had reserved Continuum for its flagship smartphones, namely the Lumia 950 and 950XL, but it was considered not a good idea and it was decided to expand the number of devices supported by that option. Microsoft representatives have confirmed that Continuum will support various smartphone models, including those from other companies like Acer's Jade Primo.
The Japanese space agency JAXA, in February of this year, has set up a new scientific satellite Hitomi in orbit. Unfortunately, the device is likely to experience some serious failure, as no contact has been established for a few days.
A few months ago, the Japanese placed a new satellite called Hitomi, which for three consecutive years had to conduct research, searching for traces of radiation, and providing scientists with valuable data on the origins of the universe. The plan may, however, burn on the shelf because a few days ago the contact with the satellite stopped and it can not be recovered. This may mean that $ 270 million spent on this mission will be thrown into the mud.
The astronomers realized that there was something wrong with the satellite when a few days ago did not go to a routine communication check. After checking, it turned out that there are five fragments of space in the satellite position.
The agency believes that the satellite could have been damaged, or at least damaged, perhaps by orbiting cosmic trash, and that the components were part of its equipment. The more optimistic version confirms for the time being only a brief signal JAXA has removed from Hitomi's communications.
For now the fate of the device remains unknown.
Billionaire and visionary Elon Musk believes that mankind must integrate with artificial intelligence. In his opinion, only in this way will we continue to be useful and will be able to survive.
Elon Musk, head of Tesla, and SpaceX, have repeatedly presented unusual concepts, such as, for example, the firing of Mars on the surface of Mars, which would make it easier to create an atmosphere and adapt the planet to human life. During the Dubai World Conference, he presented an even more daring concept for the future of mankind.
Many scientists express concerns about artificial intelligence, which one day will become much smarter than humans. So maybe we think we are superfluous to her and decide to exterminate us. In the topic of the SI, the American billionaire Elon Musk, who spoke this week at the World Government Summit, is also often quoted as saying very interesting theories.
In his opinion, a man should learn how to connect with machines in the future, in order to cope with the problems of increasingly developed artificial intelligence. SI can be very useful in many areas but at the same time it raises a lot of fears. Musk believes that the only hope for a man to survive is to find a way to connect with artificial intelligence, in that way he will be able to control it.
Musk does not explain directly how a man could join a machine, but believes that in the near future we should get closer to the biological combination and artificial intelligence. For now, the greatest obstacle to achieving this goal is the interface of the right speed, which would allow the transmission of enormous amounts of information during such a connection.
