Exclusive: This is our first look at Android 13 β€œTiramisu” and some of its upcoming features (5 minute read)

A source with access to a very early Android 13 build has shared screenshots showing several upcoming features and changes. Users will be able to set languages on a per-app basis and notifications could become an opt-in feature rather than turned on by default. A new setting has been added to settings for users to toggle the layout of the clock on the lock screen. Android 13 will lay the foundations of a feature called TARE (The Android Resource Economy) that focuses on energy-use management.

One of the World's Most Powerful Supercomputers Uses Light Instead of Electric Current (2 minute read)

France's Jean Zay supercomputer is the first HPC to have a photonic coprocessor, meaning it transmits and processes information using light. The breakthrough was made through a collaboration by LightOn, GENCI, and IDRIS. The technology will be offered to select users of the Jean Zay research community over the next few months. The fastest supercomputer in June last year was Japan's Fugaku supercomputer.

Air Force lab demonstrates key element for beaming solar power from space (2 minute read)

The Air Force and Northrop Grumman have announced that they are one step closer to collecting solar power in space and beaming it to Earth using radio frequency (RF). Their technology involves a 'sandwich tile' that converts solar energy to RF. The power can then be beamed to a receiving station on the ground and collected using a rectifying antenna that will convert it into usable power. A test of the technology is predicted to launch in 2025.
