Self-driving cars could create a massive new $7 trillion economy

TwitterFacebook

The race to create self-driving cars is on—but what happens when they’re everywhere and nobody has to drive?   

That could lead to a “passenger economy” worth $7 trillion by 2050, according to a new report by Intel and analyst firm Strategy Analytics.

While the name of the potential new market is lame, the amount of cash it’s estimated to drive is not: the study predicts self-driving cars will free up 250 million hours of commuting time per year, providing the backbone for a thriving $800 billion industry by 2035, when the study predicts fully autonomous vehicles will begin to proliferate globally.  Read more…

The tech world is becoming more political, and not everyone likes it

TwitterFacebook

“Seventeen agencies, all in agreement… they concluded with high confidence that the Russians ran an extensive information war campaign against my campaign to influence voters in the election.”

This is Hillary Clinton uncensored, speaking on a stage, railing against Russia and the Trump administration, playing to her base, and generally urging the world to #resist.

This wasn’t a political rally or event, though. Clinton was headlining the Code Conference, an annual tech event where leaders from Silicon Valley and the greater tech world congregate, typically to talk about the latest innovations, ideas, and gadgets. Read more…

Ah, delicious schadenfreude.

A scammer purporting to be from Microsoft technical support accidentally called New Zealand Police, trying to get access to the officer’s computer via remote access program TeamViewer — a unfortunately common PC support scam.

TwitterFacebook

Change.org is getting some major support from tech billionaires to create real social movements. 

LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman is leading a $30 million funding round for the site in what he said in a post on LinkedIn was his largest personal impact investment to date. 

Bill Gates and Y Combinator’s Sam Altman are also investing in Change.org in this round, Change.org CEO Ben Rattray said in a blog post

“As a society, we should be doing everything we can to build powerful, easy-to-use civic spaces where upstarts and idealists can effectively challenge entrenched interests. Where people believe their participation makes a real difference. Where every day, in transparent fashion, individual citizens can join forces in highly democratic efforts to make the world a better place,” Hoffman wrote in his LinkedIn post. “That’s why I’m making this investment in Change.org.”  Read more…

DARPA reveals design of its space plane for faster, cheaper satellite launches

TwitterFacebook

Launching satellites into orbit could get a lot cheaper thanks to an experimental space plane. 

This week, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) revealed the design for the XS-1, which is set to be built by Boeing. The hypersonic aircraft would launch vertically, deploy a second stage to carry a satellite into orbit, and then land like a normal airplane. 

Although the aircraft is still in the concept phase, DARPA believes the final result will be a vehicle that will provide “short-notice, low-cost access to space” for both military and commercial use. Initial tests of the XS-1 technology will attempt 10 flights over the course of 10 days with the ultimate goal being routine low-Earth orbit flights for around $5 million or less per launch. (Currently, it costs SpaceX about $62 million to launch its Falcon 9 rocket into orbit.) Read more…
