The real "Iron Man" is not at all old man Ilon Mask, a billionaire and inventor, and Richard Browning is an enthusiastic designer from the UK.
The Briton developed and created the first working prototype costume for the main staff of the film "Iron Man", based on comic books about Tony Stark.
Some time ago he founded the Gravity project, the purpose of which was the creation of an individual flying device, a suit that would allow you to climb into the sky. Browning has already managed to get into the Guinness Book of Records for creating the fastest flying prototype suit, propelled by turbines located on the pilot's hands.
Just the other day the inventor showed a new model of his Gravity, which was thoroughly refined and improved in several directions. Another demonstration of the costume took place in British Reading. The show was held in the local lake park.

During the tests, the inventor managed to fly to a height of more than 100 meters and maintain speed at around 48 km / h. At certain moments of the flight, Browning's speed in the suit reached 51.5 km / h, which became an absolute record for the entire existence of Gravity.

According to the inventor, the development cost him 40 thousand pounds, which is equivalent to 50 thousand dollars and, at the same time, the Briton constantly upgrades it.

In many ways, thanks to the success of companies such as Google, Facebook and Amazon, investments in information technology continue to grow. At the same time, the formation of mathematical methods that can provide what is called artificial intelligence, the possibilities are only expanding, according to The New York Times.
This becomes a cause for both anxiety and optimism. AI will reduce the amount of work that is now performed by people, will help to maintain health and will allow IT to work more effectively.
Here are 5 main areas that will change the life of technology companies - big and small.
1. АІ-public health.
Doctors use Infervision products at Wuhan Tongji Hospital in China.
Over the past 5 years, with the help of complex algorithms of deep neural networks, the computer has learned to "see". Freely based on the network of neurons in the human brain, the computer can study tasks, identifying the components of a wide range of data. For example, after analyzing billions of photos of a bicycle, the neural network will be able to recognize the bicycle.
This means that services such as Facebook and Google Photo can instantly recognize images uploaded to the Internet.
But AI will also revolutionize health. Using the same technology, machines can detect signs of disease on organ scans. After analyzing millions of photos of retinal detachment, the system can finally recognize the signs of blindness caused by diabetes. Analyzing images of a computer tomogram, AI will be able to detect lung cancer, etc.
Such technologies will improve the level of medical care in areas where there are not enough doctors. They can in principle simplify the care of the patient.
Google already conducts tests in Indian hospitals and launched the start-up Infervision in hospitals in China.
In the long term, this technology will accelerate the creation of new drugs and simplify the work in the health sector in many other areas. "Everything from the nature of the food that we grow and eat to the drugs that we take and the ways it's monitored - all this will transform the AI into a carefully thought-out way," says Matt Oko, managing partner of DCVC, a San Francisco venture capital firm , which invested heavily in the field of AI.
2. Natural language processing in the virtual interlocutor
Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant and Cortana compete for the attention of consumers, but none of them will not be able to talk "heart to heart".
Neural networks are not limited to image recognition. These same methods are used to develop Amazon Echo, which can recognize conversational commands from either side of the room and online services such as Skype that can instantly translate phone calls from one language to another. They can even eventually produce machines that can conduct a conversation.
Luc Tsettleyer, a professor at the University of Washington, argues that a "phase shift" has recently occurred in the way that technology understands the natural language - the way people talk and write. Google, Facebook and Microsoft are at the forefront of this movement and their participation promises fundamental changes in interaction with phones, cars and, in the long term, with any machines. Many companies follow the same path, including Replika, a startup from San Francisco.
Thanks to the technology of the learning machine, Replika introduced a chat-bot for smartphones. You can trust him. He communicates with you when no one is around. There is a hope that these technologies will improve and serve you in other ways. What would have happened if Alexa had been really talkative? Now she can only answer the commands, but she recognizes the voice very well. But a true understanding of the proposals is far beyond its capabilities. What would have happened if the machine could conduct a dialogue, as did the HAL 9000 computer in Arthur C. Clarke's Space Odyssey.
3. Control with the help of reason
Using EEG or electroencephalography, a startup Neurable creates a virtual game that can be controlled with the help of thoughts
Some people argue that there are even more advanced ways of interacting with computers using brain waves. Instead of telling the computer what you want, many companies believe that you could just think about it.
The use of electroencephalography or EEG is a long-standing tool for measuring the electrical activity of the brain with the help of sensors placed on the head.
Startup Neurable is the development of a virtual game, in which you can play with the help of thought.
The use of EEG is limited for such tasks, but other researchers, including Facebook, are trying to build much more powerful systems using optical sensors. Facebook hopes that in a few years thanks to this technology people will be able to print with the help of a thought 5 times faster than using a smartphone keyboard.
These methods will also face physical limitations, and this can hinder the achievement of Facebook's goal. But different start-ups, including

The cleaning process takes about 90 seconds
The creators showed a new robot SpinX, capable of cleaning the toilet. With this information stands Naked Science.
The unit can be connected to the water supply with the hose that comes with it, and replaces the existing seat and lid of the toilet bowl. Pressing the button, the mechanical hand with the rotating brush moves apart from the inner compartment on the lid of the toilet bowl.
The cleaning brush passes through the entire internal surface, at the same time a special technology sprays soapy liquid. Further, the reinforced fans perform the process of drying the surface, all this takes about 90 seconds.
Currently, the money is being collected to implement the project. The creators take orders for the purchase of the model at a price of 198 dollars.
