Health, energy, food and the future of medicine have long been a constant topic of conversation in Rio de Janeiro.
But the latest developments in the medical world will change the way we look at the future.
In Brazil, a small medical centre, Cairo, has become the new laboratory of choice.
The space has been a favourite spot for Brazilian scientists looking to learn how to harness the power of the internet and the power that will come from new technology.
Dr João Paulo Gomes, head of the centre at the Brazilian Institute of Technology in Sao Paulo, said: “This was a very important opportunity because it is an example of how you can start a new way of doing things.”
Inventors of smart medicine have been looking to find a way to harness energy from the internet for decades, and Cairo is one of the first medical centres that has come up with a solution.
Its use of batteries to power its computers and a power-hungry, energy-hungary machine that uses electricity to pump water from a tank into a water treatment plant are all things that have become standard in health and medical research in Brazil.
It was built by a team from the University of Sao Paulo (USP), a prestigious research university, and it’s been in use for two years.
“It’s a very big step,” says João Gomes.
“It has a lot of things in common with what we do at the University.
We’re looking at the power supply, how to turn it on, how it is distributed, and the cooling system.
As soon as you’ve got the electricity supply working, then it’s really easy to build the cooling systems.”
For the new machines, the electricity is generated from the batteries.
A pump is connected to the computer and pumps water through a system of pipes.
Then, a large amount of electricity is drawn from the pipes and stored in the batteries and then stored in a tank, which is then used to pump more water into the water treatment system.
There is also an electric pump which is used to run the machines.
That’s how it works, and João says the whole idea is very flexible.
You can have all kinds of different types of electricity systems, including solar, hydrogen and other renewable sources, and you can have a power storage system and also the power generator.
João says he has been working on the project since he was a graduate student in the university’s electrical engineering department.
“We did a lot more research on how to put the technology in place than we had done before.
What we learned from that is that the problem of storing power is much more complex and very difficult than it used to be,” he says.
He says the machines can run at a maximum power of 10 kilowatts, but that’s a small fraction of what you would need for a medical centre.
Electricity is stored in two parts.
First is the water tank, with an air filter.
Second is the battery.
There are many kinds of pumps, and many different types and sizes of batteries.
The pump is also able to operate on electricity produced by the batteries, and so the system can be designed to work at different power levels.
At the moment, Caireas is only the first machine in Brazil that is using the power generated by the internet.
Brazil is the world’s fourth largest economy, but it has a long way to go in the field of medical technology.
Last year, the country was ranked second behind China, behind only the US.
This is because of the huge number of health problems that are caused by overuse of medicines and the fact that it is a poor country with a low level of investment in medical research.
One of the things that has changed is that Cairo has attracted the attention of the likes of Elon Musk and Tesla, which has been interested in exploring alternative power sources.
Gomes says the idea is to find new ways of using electricity to store power, and he says there are plans for a whole range of different solutions.
And he’s not the only one.
More than 2,000 companies and academic institutions are using the internet to access research.
“If you think about a medical hospital, there are probably more than 300,000 patients who have an infection, so the number of potential users is pretty high,” he said.
However, it’s important to remember that all of this power is being used at the hospital’s own expense.
Cairo has been designed to operate at very low power levels, but there are many other ways to use electricity.
According to Gomes there are a lot other things that are possible with the electricity.
For example, there could be solar panels that could generate electricity for the cooling tank, or there could even be a pump that would run water through the pipes to turn the machines
