Navigating the post-COVID future of work: New challenges require new digital technologies

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for digital transformation across organizations of all stripes. If companies were not already well underway with their digital transformation before the pandemic, they almost certainly are now. Post-COVID, this transformation will only accelerate.

Around the world, the companies that are furthest along on their transformation journeys are better equipped to manage and emerge from this crisis. Those lagging have found themselves on a burning platform, with too much tech debt, dated software and outdated processes.

At some point, whether in several months or longer, offices will begin to reopen in earnest and technology will help with the return to the workplace. But even when offices do open back up, the traditional office and desktop workspace will become a pre-COVID artifact.

A major change will be the move to a distributed workforce and workplace, which will require multiple technologies and platforms connected by digital

How underwater mapping could preserve the future of our oceans

How remotely operated vehicles are mapping the future…



8:33

We’re killing our oceans. That’s not hyperbole. For years, scientists have been telling us that climate change and our addiction to plastic are directly responsible for the decline in ocean health. That’s possibly most evident at Australia’s famed Great Barrier Reef.

A study published in October found that about half the reef has died since the 1990s, largely because of record-breaking temperatures. Key to the survival of the reef (and others like it) is data. That’s where the Schmidt Ocean Institute comes in, a nonprofit using advanced technology to map the ocean floors. We spoke with the Institute’s Dr. Carlie Wiener. You can watch the interview in the video above.

3 reasons why batteries will power our future trucks, not hydrogen fuel cells

A prominent decarbonization researcher believes battery electric trucks will become the norm for low emissions road freight, as alternatives, like fuel cell vehicles, are more expensive to run.

In an interview with Clean Energy Wire, Auke Hoekstra, an academic researcher from Eindhoven University of Technology, says that fuel cell vehicles “won’t ever be able to compete with electric trucks‘ business case.”

Below are three of the key arguments he makes for why battery electric trucks will become the norm, leaving fuel cell vehicles as a distant concept of a bygone moment.

Battery technology is nearly ready

As he alludes, around 80% of trucks, in the Netherlands at least, travel 750 km (470 miles) per day, at the very most. If you want to haul goods further than this, it starts to get expensive quickly as you’ll need to employ more drivers, and pay overtime.

In reality, most trucks only need
