First Lady of Emerging Technologies Predicts the Future of Driving

Dr.Satwant Kaur, HP Distinguished Technologist, believes that human error will soon be eliminated from our daily transportation.

Some might say that exciting, futuristic predictions are Dr. Satwant Kaur's forte. Her many awards and accolades celebrate unparalleled accomplishments in technology, and her version of the future can often seem like science fiction.  However, humanity has made great technological strides, and will surely continue to do so; Dr. Kaur believes that in the near future, technology will completely alter how we drive our cars.   

Humanity has known roughly a century with the automobile, perhaps the greatest innovation of its time. Personal travel before the car was slow, uncomfortable, and often reliant on farm animals. Now, about a hundred years later, Dr. Kaur predicts a new, surprising future for cars: that they will become autonomous and self-driving. These self-driving cars could be a reality by as early as 2020, utilizing vehicle-to-vehicle communications technology. According to Dr. Kaur, machines communicate better with other machines than with humans; this is due to predictable programmatic behaviors. Also, the elimination of human drivers would eliminate most car accidents, since many result from human error- we bring with us the element of surprise, often causing these crashes. Therefore, the roadways of the future will be much safer.

Dr. Kaur notes that the easiest way to drive will be using the new technology for autonomous cars. She also believes that roads will be dedicated to the sole use of self-driving cars. Autonomous cars will also be extremely helpful they will be able to recognize and avoid pedestrians, and will be able to identify and avoid construction or other roadway hazards. These may seem like outlandish advancements; however, it isn't as radical to us now as the idea of a pocket-sized computer was thirty years ago. As always, Dr. Kaur reminds us that impressive and radical changes may be nearer than we might think.

The Knighting of Sir Kaye nominated for the Voyager (Young Reader) Marble Award from Storytellers Campfire:





 


 

Sir Kaye Needs Your Vote!
​​On September 28th, it was announced on the Storyteller’s Campfire radio program that The Knighting of Sir Kaye was nominated for their first Voyager Marble Award in the Pre-teen, Teen and Young Adult category—see below for background on the Marble Awards.  The award winners will be announced sometime in February. 
A big part of the winning selection will be audience/consumer votes and here is where we need to get out the vote for Sir Kaye

How To Vote:
On the Marble Awards website there is a button that says “Vote for Nominee”.  When you push the button I will bring up a blank email with just their email address (admin@storytellerscampfire.org). 

The easiest thing to do is just send an email using the above email address without needing to go to their webpage.   Next, just enter something in the subject line (like: voting for Marble Award nominee or whatever you’d like) and in the body of the email just state that you would like to vote for the The Knighting of Sir Kaye for the Voyager Marble Award and anything else you would like to say about Sir Kaye…or just leave it at that, that’s up to you.  

The Knighting of Sir Kaye has a good chance of winning if we can get out the vote.  Please vote and if you can ask family and friends to vote too that would be even better.   Please let me know as soon as you’ve voted and if you were able to get other votes so I can try to keep track (to the extent possible) of the number of votes.  

Here's the Marble Awards page:

First Lady of Emerging Technologies Predicts Great Advances in Alzheimer's Detection



Dr. Kaur, HP Distinguished Technologist, believes that we will soon be able to detect the disease decades before it reaches the brain.

Some might say that exciting, futuristic predictions are Dr. Satwant Kaur's forte. Her many awards and accolades celebrate unparalleled accomplishments in technology, and her version of the future can often seem like science fiction.  However, humanity has made great technological strides, and will surely continue to do so; Dr. Kaur believes that in the near future, technology will greatly aid in Alzheimer's detection.  

Alzheimer's as we know it is nearly impossible to avoid, because by the time it is detected, it's too late to stop. However, what if Alzheimer's could be detected in the eyes of a patient decades before the disease reached their brain? Dr. Satwant Kaur predicts that by 2020, radical changes could already be shaping the way we diagnose and deal with Alzheimer's. She believes that noninvasive Retinal Imaging Scan will detect Alzheimer's in a patient's eyes. This is an even more impressive concept because the test may show the special kinds of plaque in the retina that appear even before the onset of Alzheimer’s in the eye- meaning doctors and patients can truly prepare, and perhaps even fight, the disease. This plaque that first appears in eye then accumulates in the brain; once there, it causes Alzheimer's.

Dr. Kaur notes that part of the difficulty in fighting Alzheimer's stems from the inability to detect the disease before it is already affecting a patient. However, early detection will enable early intervention before Alzheimer's even appears. This prediction, like many of Dr. Kaur's others, feels as though we are launching into the future at high speed. However, early Alzheimer's detection isn't as radical to us now as the idea of a pocket-sized computer was thirty years ago. As always, Dr. Kaur reminds us that impressive and radical changes may be nearer than we might think.

A Thrilling Tome for Preppers and Sci-Fi/ Fantasy Fans Alike





 





Ron Foster's 'Crick: A Prepper is Cast Adrift' is book two in aseries that pits preppers against the apocalypse itself.

Preppers make it their business to be ready for the worst- case scenario at all times. However, even the most seasoned preppers could not anticipate the calamity that faces the characters in Crick: A Prepper is Cast Adrift. This is book two of Ron Foster's A Prepper is Cast Adrift series, during which Foster crafts a tense tale of survival under the most desperate of circumstances.

In this grim world, a cyber-attack has destroyed 80 percent of America's electrical grid, stranding hundreds of millions in darkness without infrastructure, nor running water. Martial law has been declared, with rumors flying that Russian troops have become involved with security and continued operations of the government. Both of these situations would be bad enough without the third event: a terrorist attack on the hydroelectric dams surrounding a prepper festival. With the dams blown, the intrepid preppers become stranded on an island with little food and almost no chance of escape.

Foster's sequel to The Prepper's Lament is a riveting tale of wit and ingenuity in the face of desperate times. After all, those who live by the law of preparedness are uniquely equipped for such a challenge. Foster even sprinkles real prepper tips throughout his novel, making it as educational as it is dramatic. Additionally, a peppering of charming, Southern-country humor and larger than life characters add moments of levity between heart-stopping adventure.

Preppers have become part of mainstream pop culture in recent years, but Ron Foster has been writing about the survivalist lifestyle since long before that. Crick: A Prepper is Cast Adrift bears the authenticity of its author's experience, yet is accessible and extremely entertaining for preppers, non-preppers and Sci-Fi/ Fantasy fans alike.

Ron Foster

Ron Foster is a well-followed, prolific Alabama prepper and fiction author of over 30 books. He has a unique knack for including humor as well as survival preparedness tips and tricks in his post-apocalyptic disaster stories, and is best known for his early work writing the classic Prepper Road March trilogy.

Ron is a frequent expert guest on Radio talk shows and attends many Prepper conferences and expos. He wrote this book to commemorate Lowbuck Prepper`s Prepper Stock 2014 event and to give thanks to all the attendees for their support.

Ron holds two masters degrees in Emergency Management and Homeland Security and Terrorism studies and has been a "survivalist" and a "prepper" -- long before the terms were coined by mainstream media.
