The Ideas Revolution has started!

The world in undergoing a new revolution and it’s not just the 4th Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0.. We can call it the Ideas Revolution because it’s encouraging many new ideas to be created and the best to be commercialised. Previous stages of the Industrial Revolution enabled us to build machines that could do things for us. The Ideas Revolution is enabling us to build machines that make decisions for us a- whole new step forward in technology. It’s creating many entrepreneurs because the barriers to entry have reduced significantly. It’s about sharing rather than owning.

Waterfront property owners give the public their waterfronts for free

Saving the properties on Lake Erie, one of the five Great Lakes in North America, from falling into the sea united the city and owners in common cause, allowing them to work together as a group. Handing over waterfront ownership would save the owners money on erosion control, a new lake trail would increase their property values, and the public would enjoy access to the lake. It was win-win-win. https://reasonstobecheerful.world/this-lake-is-for-everyone/

A cognitive hearing aid using AI and brain waves

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science researchers have designed a hearing aid that can read brain activity to determine which voice a hearing aid user is most interested in listening to and then focus in on it. The resulting “cognitive hearing aid” could be transformative in settings like crowded rooms in which multiple people are speaking at the same time. While the latest hearing aids feature technology designed to suppress background noise, these hearing aids have no way of knowing which voices a wearer wants to listen to. https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/cognitive-hearing-aid-columbia/

Artificial leaves that can turn sunlight into medicine

Like actual leaves, the artificial leaves take in sunlight and use it to create something entirely new, only instead of generating fuel for a living plant, they can produce medicine for humans. When sunlight hits certain liquids flowing through the leaves it sparks a chemical reaction. This is a process that would normally require electric power, harsh chemicals, or both, but by using sunlight to power the medicine production, it becomes much more sustainable. https://bgr.com/2019/09/10/artificial-leaf-study-solar-power-medicine/

A simple, affordable sticker that tests if water is safe to drink

The 2018 Young Australian of the Year in NSW won the prestigious Stockholm Junior Water Prize last week. Ms Butson’s SODIS ultraviolet radiation sticker accurately measures the solar UV exposure required to sanitise drinking water. Costing less than one US cent to produce, it has the potential to revolutionise the way some of the world’s poorest people can be certain that the water they are drinking is safe. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/this-will-stick-in-our-minds-for-a-long-time-macinley-s-invention-could-change-lives-for-one-cent-20190831-p52mm4.html

The world’s first plastic neutral nation

Australian technology donated to a Southeast Asian nation aims to recycle 20,000 tonnes of plastic each year. Timor-Leste is a target for ocean plastics, and much washes up on their pristine beaches. The country will get a new $60 million recycling plant, with work due to start next year. The plant will help process all their plastic waste and the government is aiming for it to become the world’s first plastic neutral nation. Plastic neutral means no used plastics will enter the environment as waste, and will instead be recycled into new products. www.sbs.com.au/news/timor-leste-could-become-the-first-plastic-neutral-nation-thanks-to-australian-technology

A new way to manage your pain by tracking it

Pain ROADMAP is a mobile platform made up of an app for patients with chronic pain and a portal for clinicians. Using the app, you can keep a log of each activity you do throughout the day, your pain levels as you do those activities, what pain medication you take and when. You also wear a device around your waist, which keeps track of when you are moving and resting. Armed with this detailed information, clinicians can help you work out how to better pace your activities through the day to reduce the frequency of intense periods of pain. By using ROADMAP five out of seven people who relied on take-as-needed pain medication were able to stop taking it according to a study. Opioid medication by those in the study also decreased by 20 per cent on average. https://blog.csiro.au/managing-chronic-pain-in-more-mobile-ways/
