Top 7 Building Decarbonization Wins In 2022
by RMI | CleanTechnica
This past year was another defining year for building decarbonization action across every real estate sector, from weatherizing rural single-family homes to electrifying city skyscrapers to retrofitting affordable multifamily housing. So, as we look ahead to 2023 and the transformation of the buildings sector that needs to take place at the pace and scale required to heed our planet’s urgent warnings, it’s worth taking stock of the top 7 building decarbonization victories and breakthroughs of 2022.
Hyundai, Ford expand partnerships with quantum computing firms
by Fierce Electronics | Fierce Electronics
The future of autonomous and electric vehicles holds great promise for many technology companies, from sensor firms to chip designers to AI and software developers. But don’t leave out quantum computing firms either. They increasingly are looking to the automotive sector as a field for near-term market opportunities where quantum computing and hybrid classical-quantum simulations can deliver value.
Hyundai Motor Company and IonQ, a firm developing its own quantum computers and that counts both Hyundai and Kia as investors, have been working together for about a year. They initially focused on a project that used quantum computing resources to help simulate the chemical reaction that occur in electric vehicle batteries with a goal of optimizing these batteries for longer like, higher quality and lower cost.
The pair have expanded their partnership throughout 2022, with the most recent expansion of the collaboration coming earlier this month, as IonQ has made available new, more powerful quantum computer models, first its 23-qubit Aria machine and now its 32-qubit Forte. In addition to the EV battery focus, Hyundai and IonQ are now running projects focused on object detection for autonomous driving and the development of machine learning algorithms.

Apollo 8 Astronaut Bill Anders Captures Earthrise
On Dec. 24, 1968, Apollo 8 astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders became the first humans to orbit the Moon, and the first to witness the magnificent sight called "Earthrise." As the spacecraft was in the process of rotating, Anders took this iconic picture showing Earth rising over the Moon’s horizon. In 2018, the International Astronomical Union commemorated the event by naming a 25 mile diameter crater "Anders' Earthrise."
