Watch out, valets -- your days are numbered, if Bosch and Mercedes-Benz have anything to say about it.The automaker and supplier have teamed up once again, this time to create a driverless valet service that's built into the car itself.It's currently being tested as a pilot project at the Mercedes-Benz Museum parking garage in Stuttgart, Germany.You drive your brand new Mercedes-Benz (you have one of those, right?)to the door in the parking garage.Hop out of the car, whip out your phone, and in a couple presses, the car shuffles off to find a spot on its own.

St. Paul, Minn. (July 2017)--While beneficial microbes are becoming a more common tool in agriculture, their effectiveness in the field is severely blunted thanks to real-world environmental stressors like heat and drought, competition with other microbes, and interactions with the host plant.Adding to these challenges: the development of new beneficial microbes and microbiome-related treatments has been slow.Because the pool of microbial taxa found in the soil is so large and diverse, it is hard to isolate the most beneficial ones for study.Through a new Phytobiomes journal review paper, titled "Translating Phytobiomes from Theory to Practice: Ecological and Evolutionary Considerations," Drs."We argue that if we can identify the underlying ecological mechanisms, these can provide a roadmap to improve the development and application of successful microbiome treatments."Using endophytic fungi to illustrate, Hawkes and Connor discuss the integration of ecological and evolutionary niche theory in plant microbiome studies to help with the development and implementation of microbiome treatments.

This new 3D printer material could change the way we stock, supply, and operate the International Space StationKeeping the International Space Station (ISS) running properly requires a litany of specialized tools, and between unforeseen malfunctions and periodic hardware upgrades, it’s often hard to anticipate what tools the crew will need for a given task.On top of that, it’s also extremely expensive to launch objects into space, so in recent years, NASA has been exploring the idea of 3D printing tools in orbit.Last year, ISS astronauts made headlines when they used the first 3D printed tool ever created in space — but this tool wasn’t without limitations.Due to the extremely harsh conditions in the vacuum of space, NASA’s 3D printed tools have largely been limited to use within the station itself.But now, the technology is set for another giant leap.

The former tech unicorn Ve Interactive collapsed with £12.6m of unpaid bills owed to Google, HMRC and a fireworks display company.Administration documents for the online marketing company, once valued at £1.5bn, reveal the lavish spending of its former management before it was rescued in April for just £2m.They show how the start-up, which never made a profit, spent thousands on supplies from a fruit company, nights at jazz clubs and Arsenal Football Club.It also owed more than £40m to high net worth individuals who had loaned the company money.A “statement of affairs” published by Ve’s administrators shows that it owed £3m to Google, believed to be for online hosting services.Almost £2.5m was owed in various taxes, including business rates, payroll and VAT.

There's a pretty sizable difference between traditional hybrid vehicles and plug-in hybrids.But Chrysler is banking on consumer ignorance as it swaps between the two terms based on where its plug-in minivan is marketed.Within the state of California, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will be marketed as a plug-in hybrid, whereas in every other state it will just be called a hybrid, Automotive News reports, citing a conversation with Fiat Chrysler brand head Tim Kuniskis.The reason for this marketing strategy is pretty straightforward -- Chrysler doesn't think the rest of the country will "get it."Plug-in hybrids have a much larger battery than traditional hybrids.Thus, they come with plugs where users can juice them up at will, and if the electric-only range is far enough, drivers could conceivably only use electricity most, if not all of the time.

Artificial intelligence is the “biggest risk we face as a civilisation” and needs to be checked as soon as possible, Elon Musk has warned.The billionaire technology entrepreneur behind Tesla and SpaceX said there is a risk that “until people see robots go down the street killing people they don’t know how to react”.“AI is a rare case where we need to be proactive in regulation instead of reactive because if we’re reactive in AI regulation it’s too late,” he told a meeting of US governors.“Normally the way regulations are set up is a whole bunch of bad things happen, there’s a public outcry and then after many years the regulatory agencies set up to regulate that industry.“That in the past has been bad but not something that represented a fundamental risk to the existence of civilisation.He has repeatedly warned of its dangers, and set up a $1 billion (£770M) research company to try and promote safe development of AI.
