    They've already made a experimental sample.

    The key detail I could discern from this text is that the illumination of the target is in a wide EM band instead of
    a narrow band like conventional radar. The wide band illumination results in more accuracy in position determination
    and photographic reconstruction of the illuminated object. This is a very plausible scenario since throwing
    many wavelengths at the target gives more information due to differential scattering, i.e. there is a new degree
    of freedom and hence information axis introduced.

    the key component is by using fiber optics , you dont need to put aperture in the nose like conventional radar , it is very thin so you can distribute it all over aircraft , nose , wings , verticals , tail , ... so during illumination it kinda gives synthetic aperture radar view of the object.

    With some serious computing power it could examine the radar return and the effect the target had on the return signal to determine all sorts of interesting new things...

    For instance the return of longer wave signals but the absorption or deflection of higher frequency signals will immediately identify a B-2 target for instance...

    Russian researchers have created an improved process to manufacture "transparent aluminum". Not quite the Star Trek BS, but close.
    Note that metals cannot be transparent by definition since they have mobile electrons and are thus strong absorbers in the whole EM spectrum.
    Oxides of metals can be transparent since they are insulators that lack mobile electrons. This particular glass is AlON (aluminum oxinitride) and
    has nice properties for use as bullet proof glass and in lasers.

    https://phys.org/news/2017-07-russian-scientists-technology-production-transparent.html

    Specialists from the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI and multi-institutional collaborators have developed a technology to produce compacts from aluminum oxynitride (ALON). They've published their results in IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering.

    To obtain "transparent aluminum," researchers at the Institute of nuclear physics and engineering (INPhE) MEPhI applied the method of spark-plasma sintering. This is a new sintering process based on the modified method of hot pressing. In this case, electric current is passed directly through the mold and pressing billet, but not through an external heater. Very rapid heating is achieved by pulsed current for an extremely short work-cycle time.

    "Among all present ceramics of medium density, aluminum oxynitride has a significantly high strength, comparable to that of YAG ((yttrium aluminum garnet) and cubic zirconia (stabilized zirconium oxide). Its toughness, which is the most important characteristic for armor protection, surpasses those of all transparent materials including quartz glass, fused quartz, spinel and leucosapphire," explains one of the authors of the publication, postgraduate student of INPhE Nikita Rubinkovskii.

    Fans of Star Trek will recall that in the fourth movie, The Voyage Home, a material called "transparent aluminum" plays an important role in the story. Such materials have already been created and successfully used. It's four times stronger than aluminosilicate glass, and more scratch resistant. In addition, this material can withstand temperatures up to 2100 degree Celsius.

    Currently, the penetrating power of small arms and small-caliber artillery forces the developers of protection equipment to improve the performance of armor materials and protective structures. This is especially true of transparent armor materials. Transparent polycrystalline ceramics is the most promising in this respect, in particular, ceramics based on aluminum oxynitride. It is possible to obtain transparent products of complex shape using the ceramics technology processes of molding and sintering.

    The developers also claim that ALON can be used in several military and commercial applications, e.g., windows and domes for spacecraft and outer transparent armor.

    http://marchmontnews.com/Industry-Manufacturing/Central-regions/21830-Russias-first-smart-factory-open-later-this-year-.html

    Russia’s first “smart factory” to open later this year

    Russia’s first “smart factory” is slated for launch by the end of this year in Rybinsk, in the Yaroslavl region north of Moscow. It will become a test range to fine-tune and commercialize domestic innovative solutions for industry which are expected to pave the way for developing a new model of industrial management in this country. The factory will be based at UEC – Gas Turbines, a large industrial company formerly known as Saturn and even earlier Rybinsk Engines.

    As part of this test range project, IT solutions by Russian developers will be used to manufacture complex products, such as engine components. It is not another technopark where developers work separately from real industry, the project owners emphasized. It is going to be collaboration with UEC – Gas Turbines’ highly skilled staff, using well developed infrastructure.

    All parts of the “smart factory” will be fully automated, turning the premises into a “Lego” kind of industrial site with all production lines easily upgradable and refocused. Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are at the heart of a self-contained system that will run all subsystems within the project. Management will be fully renovated, based on advanced product lifecycle management (PLM) approach that is expected to ensure integration with logistics and servicing centers, and provide feedback.

    According to Dmitry Ivanov, UEC – Gas Turbines’ director for innovation, the test range project will cost a total of around $120m. It is expected that as many as 20 key technologies will have been polished and refined for industrial applications by the end of a starting three-year period. If fine-tuned properly, the technology solutions may be purchased by UEC – Gas Turbines.

    This is a failed project, with minimal payback.
    Bad to see that how many place fall into the "why not use IT based manufacturing system to satisfy control freaks" trap.

    Putin Reveals Who Will Be the Lord of the World

    Russia's President Putin has revealed which technological sphere will determine the future leader of the world.

    "Artificial intelligence is not only the future of Russia, but the future of all mankind. It holds both tremendous opportunities and is fraught with scarcely predictable dangers. Whoever takes the lead in this sphere will become Lord of the World," President Putin told Russian schoolchildren during an open lesson on their first day of the new school year.

    You have a good point, however at the moment Russia can't completely boast about space exploration because 1) Angara rockets are still in early development, 2) Construction of Vostochny is still in progress. Somewhere down the road when Russia can launch manned flights to space from its territory then Russia can start promoting its space programs more actively.

    This is what you can expect from a President with very little knowledge on computers and
    that not even know how to use Internet will say. In short he is wrong as always..
    Computers can't rule , they are robots that obey instructions , and nothing else.
    Artificial Intelligence does not means computers can think. They only execute programs..
    and their "intelligence" only depends on their programmers ,program. but what computers do in reality is simple binary math operations. and nothing else. What will rule the world is people with leadership . People like Putin that leads nothing outside Russia, will just follow the west and complain how unfair they are.

    So is not a surprise that a clueless President like Putin , that have no leadership ,speak about
    Leadership ,what will rule in the world.. but ends being totally wrong. the world will be ruled by leaders and Putin will not be one of them. since he follows the west.. And computers will be programmed to follow what their programmers wants.

    Sounds like some of those chips can be replaced with programmable ASICs. Much like with the Motorola 680** series of CPUs,
    these can be much faster and "debugged" compared to the original.

    I don't see any Russian disadvantage in the field of AI. And it is not around the corner no matter the noise level
    from clowns like Musk and even "respectables" like Hawking. Aside from stapling standard quantum on a GR background,
    (QM and GR are inconsistent on a fundamental level; the former demands a flat space-time. Any talk you hear about
    gravitons has nothing to do with GR but originates from field theory "approximations" from mostly the 1960s. As of now
    QM and GR have not been reconciled.) Hawking has not contributed anything to AI so his future predictions are no more
    valid than your next door neighbour.

    Did I say anything about Russian disadvantageous position? Not that  I remember. The only disadvantage is commercialization. Baidu, Alibaba have billions of USD to invest in AI toys.  Amazon alone invests in R&D 16bln USD/yr  not all in AI true but Data Science is huge part of it .  How can you compare this to Russian scale of AI investments?

    As for AI. Depends how you define AI. first wave? second one or third? or new approach that will come after Deep Learning? If you think about Red Queen form Resident Evil, then no. Not yet. If you think about better medical diagnosis then human or better strategy for investment it is already there.
    On market.

    What is in military labs we can only guess. As for AI and quantum computing there is a synergy. Unless you know something quys from D-Wave systems or Google Labs dont?


    BTW not there huh? Smile

    Beyond video games: New artificial intelligence beats tactical experts in combat simulation


    Artificial intelligence (AI) developed by a University of Cincinnati doctoral graduate was recently assessed by subject-matter expert and retired United States Air Force Colonel Gene Lee - who holds extensive aerial combat experience as an instructor and Air Battle Manager with considerable fighter aircraft expertise - in a high-fidelity air combat simulator.
    The artificial intelligence, dubbed ALPHA, was the victor in that simulated scenario, and according to Lee, is "the most aggressive, responsive, dynamic and credible AI I've seen to date."
    And, anymore, when Lee flies against ALPHA in hours-long sessions that mimic real missions, "I go home feeling washed out. I'm tired, drained and mentally exhausted. This may be artificial intelligence, but it represents a real challenge."

    It isn't all about the amount they invest in either. We also do have so little information on were exactly the funds are going to. Amazon doesn't invest that much, believe me. Their entire financial structure of investment is in data centers and distribution. I work for a particular competitor and I know what they invest in and what we invest in. Don't be fooled into a lot of this technology because a huge portion of it is gimmicks that aren't as useful mixed in ridiculous amounts of marketing. What most people don't grasp, is how much marketing costs.

    Russian universities hold competition every year in AI development and other software skills and this year they heals one using Elbrus based machines. Results were quite good. You don't need to shell out tons of money on something to expect results. Funny thing about that belief is that you need to. But it is what causes inflation and overall expensive toys (VR as example).

    We will see the results eventually. I know Yandex really gets involved in AI development. Their new search engine structure is AI based, compared to Google analysts based.

Amazon doesn't invest that much, believe me. Their entire financial structure of investment is in data centers and distribution. I work for a particular competitor and I know what they invest in and what we invest in.  Don't be fooled into a lot of this technology because a huge portion of it is gimmicks that aren't as useful mixed in ridiculous amounts of marketing. What most people don't grasp, is how much marketing costs.

    Russian universities hold competition every year in AI development and other software skills and this year they heals one using Elbrus based machines. Results were quite good. You don't need to shell out tons of money on something to expect results. Funny thing about that belief is that you need to. But it is what causes inflation and overall expensive toys (VR as example).

    We will see the results eventually. I know Yandex really gets involved in AI development. Their new search engine structure is AI based, compared to Google analysts based.

    dont get me wrong I am big fan of Russia competing in AI market. But for this skills are not enough. Money is that counts too. Even if Russian startup comes with brilliant innovation then what? who is gonna pour 60 Billions of Rubles in scaling up? This is where I see the problem.

    Yandex sure (Alisa if you are not sure what it is ask her Smile has around 1 BLn USD turnover. CISCO alone invests 5bln in R&D, Google 11 BLN and Amazon around 15 bln... Here is the problem. I hope that with Russia on govt level will keep pace of investments




    Companies that can do this are fairly small in Russia and this must be either state or state funding via banks.


    BTW Amazon - doubles R&D staff both in Berlin and London this year. Is there any place in Russia where 1000 scientists work on AI in one place?

    Russia will become a leader in the implementation of blockchain technology, said the head of VEB

    Russia will become a leader in the implementation of blockchain technology, said the head of VEB.

    "We are also in negotiations with "Rostelecom" and "Mail of Russia" on the possibility of using the blockchain," said Gorkov.

    "No one knows how many Russia "mines", we have created a group on the level of the government of the Russian Federation on the introduction of the blockchain (headed by the first Vice-Premier of Russia Igor Shuvalov, ed.), this is not in any country of the world. I think that Russia can be a leader in 2018 by the introduction of blockchain technology" — said the head of VEB.

    Blockchain system organization of distributed databases. This technology allows to significantly optimize the costs of corporate and public governance.

    My question is can it help to de-dollarize Russian economy (no SWIFT, no banks no sanctions...) and how to keep it form money laundering.
