hello and welcome to technology update my name's peter and i'll be presenting the show in today's episode we learn about blunders changing career. participants of the form in tom's going to football match between robots and humans. russian scientists conduct some cutting edge crystals in the lab of. the e.u. peter pan at its own game. and russia tracks on the tech big boys. first around the for this month's tech news. to be used by the resource pay observation satellite was put into operation on the twenty fifth of june the commercial satellite and be used for creating an operating maps launching pollution levels searching for mineral deposits and assisting the bullshit emergency services based on camera is capable of taking black and whites cool images with a resolution of zero to one meter over an area of eighty thousand square kilometers
5:30 am
per day the first test shots of l.a. in kansas were received on the second of july the second international conference on quantum technologies was held in moscow this month the event stretched over one hundred scientists including a nobel prize winner the conference was dedicated to the application of quantum physics in technology one of the latest breakthroughs in this field is in teleportation the head of the russian quantum center's executive committee tells us more what's happening there is that we've teleport a quantum state of atoms for all occasion to another and atoms in the same quantum state they're indistinguishable therefore we can say that with all the boring atoms for all one location to another but we're not moving matter when moving information about this matter and so the information which was the written in the atoms of this location is no transferred teleported. under another
5:31 am
location the trick is that quantum information can not be written as a sequence of classical bits and therefore i cannot just look at where terms and call you on the phone and tell me everything about there i am not allowed to do it by the laws of nature therefore we need this special link which we call in taking on the world and this is how teleportation is accomplished the six international maritime differential was held in st petersburg earlier this month the event got off to a flying start with an aerobatic display from the russian knights and a chart suggest from thirty one countries to show not only gay participants demonstrate the latest in naval technology on dry land under the sea but also get down to serious business. the russian government submitted a bill to the state team on the twenty eighth of june visiting a radical reorganization of the bush an academy of sciences which was founded in seven hundred twenty four i'm currently unites four hundred eighty three institutions employing around ninety five thousand people consuming proposals of
5:32 am
the bill for the russian academy of sciences to incorporate the russian economy of agricultural sciences and the russian credit me of medical sciences transferring control over the merged organizations financial assets of property specifically created state agency giving the scientists more time to spending a lot of the bill is designed to improve the efficiency of the organization encourage putting scientists to join and stimulate will cost research but it was received a mixed reaction state officials are holding talks with leading scientists as a result sixty nine amendments to the original draft of broad to be made the bill should come into law sometime in the autumn but more changes will most likely be made by the time. all of this bill is a vital importance it's not only about reforming the russian academy of sciences it will determine the path russia takes in the future whether we continue to be a results based economy or turn towards high tech industries this is. what's at
5:33 am
stake but. it wouldn't be right without first getting. well so here's the last story he did for technology the team went to men's to learn about the latest developments in the tractor industry. brain. with the world's population set to reach eight point one billion people by two thousand and twenty five the pressure is on to meet growing food demand and despite the recent your income paints in six of possible food source you certainly won't find me eating a locust very good anytime soon certainly staple food such as cereals were made one of the most cost effective ways of meeting on each additional needs try to some combines a lot to be the work of course is responsible for feeding all these extra miles for the it's not surprising then that global demand for charts is expected to increase six point eight percent each year until two thousand and sixteen reaching an astounding one hundred twenty two billion dollars ninety six percent of the charts
5:34 am
market is split between eight manufacturers one of which charts words the company has a history supplying by over sixty years it has produced over three point three million shoppers two point six million of which were exported so hundred twenty five countries around the world and with a market share ten percent the company's in a great position. which was created in one nine hundred forty six and in addition to its main planting means it owns a number of the facilities dotted around feller roots run in the team and child to minsk to see what the company's doing stay ahead of the game and found a company called you could use sixty two different models ranging from small multipurpose trucks as a municipal vehicles to truck machines and vehicles that can operate at forty degrees below zero the components of specifications of each model a tailored suit a very different job speech charts a house to perform whether it be plowing the fields ready for the next harvest or clearing the snow to keep the traffic moving in the winter months but one thing the churches have to supply plenty of is sheer brute. force and precise control and to
5:35 am
do this they need a transmission that's the job the mechanical transmission is the most common itself is a high powered conversion ratio a compact size and good reliability but can be a bit impractical hydro mechanical systems also using heavy duty because it often also much to give books given the driver more comfort so unfortunately this type of has a low power conversion ratio and requires a cooling system then there's the electro mechanical transmission which can be found in ships trains don't troops in a military vehicles this type of a superior control over power and speed but has not been widely implemented yet she treats large sized expense and waits for it is nothing new about the idea of installing electric transmissions and tractors we build the first track with an electric transmission in the night and sixty's night in sixty five to be precise it wasn't very powerful buts we were a bit ahead of our time we develop the tractor with the st petersburg electric technical company of course back then electronics were not that advanced so we
5:36 am
couldn't develop it further. we were ahead of our time then and now we're catching up just before the. main starts wisconsin such was also a problem in moscow to help effect the electromechanical transmission. is one of russia's leading electrical engineering specializing in various fields including manufacturing design engineering research and development the company's portfolios over three thousand products ranging from hydro generators a night you'll notice to control systems unlike china transmissions. started discussing the possibility of creating an electro mechanical transmission around four years ago as a result a number of prototypes were produced and subjected to a field tests which culminated in one of the charts receiving a silver medal at the two thousand and nine i.q. technical expo in hung over since then both companies have tinkered with the prototypes and tweak the design and now have a model display to hit the production lines in close cooperation with highly
5:37 am
skilled specialists from minsk track to work we solved the main issue control in the traction electric equipment set it was only through that close cooperation that we managed to solve the main challenge to control the power of the tractor. transmissions dynamically great for key components the diesel engine combined motor generator electronics high level controller and asynchronous motors on two or more four wheels the motor generator and electronics book convert the kinetic powered funded by the diesel engine into electricity which is then used to drive electric motors on the wheels all of these components and by the high level controller which makes sure the try to base the drive is every command instantaneously just in the speed and direction of the wheels ensuring maximum fuel efficiency however this opens challenge was to integrate an electro mechanical transmission into an existing must produce truck the bellows thirty twenty two. now it's one thing to develop a completely new charger on this type of transmission from the ground completely
5:38 am
overhauling the transmission of the truck to. specifically designed for this quite a different matter and this is where the brains of t.m. came in. machine b. sit in development and shoot films on specializing in electric motors for over forty five years. and produced low voltage electric motors for the shipping industry trains. and countless other applications their experience and expertise and motors played a crucial role in developing an electromechanical transmission in that very specific criteria set by means touch the works. it took nine months well twelve to be completely honest to build the first tractor off to designing the prototype. designs the prototype built the equipment tested it and finally installed it on a tractor. the world is constantly changing and people always looking for quick and
5:39 am
easy ways of doing things so given that some try to drivers have to contend with all to fifty years it's hardly surprising that manufacturers are looking for a better solution the transmission and all the benefits that come with it means that farming just got a little bit easier the twenty three is kitted out with all the latest cons including a touchscreen g.p.s. and cruise control while the reduction in vibration makes for more peaceful environments mccallum in light of this resoundingly success both companies are looking to introduce the electromechanical transmissions of all the products in the model range which is so confident in how we see the trucks used to drive but they even let the technology go despite the five hundred in a while. as gas and brake pedals instead of having four different words accelerator two different brakes. you know drive only needs to step on the gas pedal it's just like driving a mercedes but naturally the drivers learn how to operate these tractors very
5:40 am
quickly. and that's the most. so what was the revamped charts alight to draw and it was a smooth as easy as can be it was really no different from a simple sit dead in terms of complexity and drive ability after just a few minutes behind the wheel i started thinking that i might have a future career out on the farm. that's just the first off the program so don't go anywhere see you after the break. i almost told you my language as well but i will only react to situations i haven't read the reports so i'm likely to push the no i will leave them to the state department to comment on your latter point of the month to say. to carry out a call as i'm going to talk you know gonna. say no more weasel words.
5:41 am
when you made a direct question are you prepared for a change when you punch be ready for a. pretty speeches and a little down to freedom to cost. the judges assess on son. killed on the streets. that women kidnapped and converted to islam by force will there be another layer of motives for the coakley christians of egypt to the cross touches muslims future victims. the way of the cross. nobody chooses to be homeless no one chooses to me and now sorrow.
5:42 am
isidro's for the show to. get in the six pm get out six feet six. they were. things for. me the class before the. days were against. it's tough to think about all of them comes to. an end to know that many may not have only been the last to choose should never be but they're also due to foreclosures that never should have.
5:43 am
welcome by the city of homs is located slap bang in the sense of russia and for a couple of days in may the city was hosted in of us forum making it the sense of russian innovation as well. focal point founded in sixteen zero four times could
5:44 am
already establish itself as the educational center of siberia by the mid nineteenth century the city now boasts fifteen research institutes eight universities and one in every five residences of students in two thousand and ten tomsk invested two point two percent of its gross regional products in r. and d. making the city second largest economic sector the city is host to in a verse which is the longest standing innovation forum in russia the annual event was held for the fifteenth time this year over two thousand people from nineteen countries around the world took part in the forum which attracted over twenty five thousand visitors in just four days the forum gave representatives from leading washing companies startups and universities she to meet and discuss various issues and share their experiences as you may have guessed from the name the form is dedicated to the development of the bush an innovative sector. for much of this forum was different from the previous ones in the sense that it was focused on a specific economic sector it wasn't just a forum for innovations that involved all economic sectors it was aimed at the
5:45 am
wrong material sector mainly the oil and gas industry focusing on a specific sector which gave the form a second wind in the form of more with her. as well as showing off the latest products innovations developments and strange slimy substances many participants of the form some firm concepts of cooperation in part the focus of this year's. forum on the oil and gas industry was so successful that the organizers plans to continue dedicating the form to different economic sectors in the future the robots were particularly popular students at the turn to be advancing. humans was even slate of the two thousand and eighteen located off the beaten track of the trans-siberian railway i'm sure that will continue to stand out as the very heart of h. crystals are normally associated with precious jewels but they also play an important role in the world of technology scientists and crystals very seriously
5:46 am
and a whole new meaning to the phrase crystal clear. water tank is located in the tom special economic zone with over forty years of experience made a reputation for self as a top manufacture of crystals for solid state lasers however before he could be shipped around the world the crystals that make them must first be grown each crystal starts off as a seed or small crystal which is then placed in a mixture of. the rotation. speed of the crystal all closely monitored after being subject. to sixty days if. you get all the equipment you can see. specialists and built right. so. not only our own technology growing crystals and treating the final product. our own special equipment.
5:47 am
into various shapes and sizes and highly polished to ensure the surfaces are completely flat and angle correctly the crystals produced by the committee are used in a wide range of optical instruments and devices such as night vision goggles range finders a medical instruments one of the price is the modulator the solid state lasers the modulator is responsible for controlling the frequency of the bee gees. the finishing touches must first be made before the commute in any of these things to do this because. by. the crystals benefit from three very distinctive features. they have very high integrity throughout the entire structure of the crystal. very strong optical damage resistance. and the crystals that we also have very very high
5:48 am
electrical resistance in for. each crystal must pass one final hurdle before reaching the market scientists in this testing facility put through their paces the very highest. this is especially true of the. science they must be flawless. generate the powerful yet short pulses of light the scientists required to study split second reactions. resistance and transparent properties of the modulators are tested in this lab to ensure they won't fail despite being only a relatively new player on the market not only in high demand in russia but also the c.i.s. china and russia has traditionally been at the forefront of laser technology of a stiff competition from abroad in recent years as for the computer game so let's head over to the lab and see what they're doing stay one step ahead. one shop you know what. the physical institute can trace its roots all the way back to seventeen fourteen and to this day remains one of the leading scientific institutes carrying
5:49 am
out research in all the major areas of physics and it was also home to many nobel prize winners including alexander proctor of. they were awarded the nobel prize in physics in one thousand nine hundred sixty four for their groundbreaking research and the development of the laser as we know it the quantum oscillator they created stimulated emission to be achieved between two atomic energy states which in turn a lot. population version to be maintained or in other words the world's first continuous laser was professor. worked with the collide and is now picked up the baton and continues his legacy. in the infrared spectrum for twenty years the institute before becoming interested in a phenomenon known as super radiance boss of was the first person to appreciate the importance of research in this field completely. for fifteen years in the infrared spectrum which is invisible to human eye then around four years ago joined
5:50 am
forces with scientists in other countries who were also interest in super radiance within the blue and violet physical spectrums advances in the spectrum in other countries in recent years has meant that europe to pick up the pace just to keep. also made a pleasant change the culture to be able to actually see his work. history in the spectrum naturally called the eye of the european commission so to jumpstart europe's laser industry the commission issued of the search grant to the consortium of later research is known as fence of. the grant was issued as part of the future and emerging technologies branches f p seven program which focuses on investing in high risk research with potentially revolutionary social and technological implications in addition to the lived institutes the consortium is made up of institutes in switzerland. and germany and the university of cambridge. european commission financed us because europe was trying to catch up with japan
5:51 am
several years ago japan made a significant breakthrough in the blue and violet spectrum. mainly thanks to the efforts of such companies as sony and shelved so japan was very much ahead of the rest of the world as it practically have the monopoly of these lasers on the market of japan had already unveiled the first blu ray prototype in two thousand with the first plays being released in the country just three years later the blue relays it generates a more focused theme. and the one using d.v.d. drives the greater position of the blu ray allows much more data to be crammed onto each disk as well as leans more immersive game and film experiences the blue ray also has much more serious scientific observations with such high demand for these lasers and after thirteen years of production japan cannot churn them out for as little as eight dollars a piece it's no wonder then that your wants to get in on the action so to set the ball rolling told to stop when japanese great joys and took them apart to get to the laser inside. of cambridge university has been developing the idea of modifying lasers with these focused on beams for
5:52 am
a long time. we did our first joint work in this area in the mid one nine ninety s in ninety ninety five or ninety ninety six but the world as well as putting their heads together. also pulled their material resources institute supplied their custom laser pulls measuring device joachim which provided their focused workstation the laser measuring device allowed to be such as to monitor the output of the laser with a position of up to one millionth of a billionth of a second in near real time is this the units that helps us to form operations with lasers and to discern ordinary lasers from insides blu ray drivers. as i've mentioned earlier. but i mean to lasers capable of generating ultra short impulses got to do with. the laser from the blu ray drives placed inside the chamber of the focused being workstation it must then be located with
5:53 am
a microscope so the etching process can be closely monitored in real time stream a high magnification of the microscope means that finding the laser can sometimes prove tricky once located the areas that need to be removed from the metal body of the laser with a focused ion be marked. the whole process can save between ten and fifteen minutes depending on the intensity of the beam. each laser so. some wanted to the residual resistance between the two parts which should increase over time as more message between them is removed from. the process we carried out we split the laser into three parts. the body of the laser has been divided into three electrically isolated such electrodes attached to either side supply an electrical current which implies the laser radiation the section in a sense actually absorbing when the amount of electricity supply to exceed the critical level the floodgates open resulting in shorts and coherence powerful laser
5:54 am
pulses being emitted in other words a super radio plays a big we managed to make a shorter powerful impulse and break the world record that sony had previously set people's last for just over one pick a second as power is seven to eight swats which exceeds that of the japanese achievements. so why did six institutes the european commission of us really it goes all this trouble well apart from their interest in the nitty gritty futuristic science of it all super radio lasers also have very practical applications today that can be used to transfer process information because times help scientists study bracket reactions in cells and improve the accuracy of g.p.s. navigation systems on the puter of a seriousness we managing just fine on his bike. bush is rapidly expanding market is becoming increasingly attractive to international corporations. qualcomm is one of the firm for consider only action so we went to the core components to see what
5:55 am
they have to offer. teach. it didn't take much to jump into to attend i.q. two thousand and thirteen which was held just a stone's throw away from bad square at the ritz carlton hotel the event put together the biggest and brightest plays of the mobile and wireless industries looking to tap into the tension of the bush markets extensible lots of forty networks and the body of a. ability to affordable smartphones means that the number of active mobile connections between she's expected to more than double by two thousand and seventeen make an exception only to india. call com focus on providing both hardware and software products for the wireless ecosystem and mobile environment among those this the company currently works with internet security by the kaspersky mobile game developer hero and software developer avi abby has made a reputation for itself as an industry leader in the field of tech speculation the company's business card reader application builds on this experience and lets you
5:56 am
just stand back nice and safe concepts information from a business card all in a couple of tops and swipes of the recently updated its already successful application suite to the all joined it's a knowledge of developed by call all joined enables proximal and paid to be a connectivity among complication so you can then run a collaborative environment where you can share information real time information in a very low latency capability or join is also an essential component of the internet of everything where we see millions of devices connected together around the world . was founded in one nine hundred eighty nine and he's one of the world's leading software developers with his famous linguistics the software and business card reader the community is a history of bringing people together now the business benefits of home the pretty obvious so why don't more smartphones or all the mobile devices are anything like this is stunned that home with the here will call me is also a large developer of cheap sets so we can offer our products to the vendors which use cheap sets when developing their devices that with the device hopefully will no
5:57 am
longer be left in the lurch from the can't find someone's business card or an ounce of our own the cooperation between our being caucus just one example of how international firms are increasingly working with their wishing counterparts to bring in of it to products to the market given obvious impressive track record and all comes mobile expertise i'm sure it will be long before we see either of them again so it's a good job i scan the business cards. i'm afraid that's all we've got time for today but we look forward to see you next month in the muscle what's on your business card what's the transmission you have enjoy the right. we speak your language any time of the war not a day of. school music programs and documentaries in spanish matters to you breaking news a little turn
