Electronically Securing IoT Devices for the Future
As IoT-connected devices continue to rise in popularity, there is a growing need to secure them against cyber-attacks that plague the internet daily and continue to grow in prominence. These threats have the potential to access sensitive information—to the extent that conventional anti-virus and firewall solutions will not suffice.
German Startup e-bot7 Improves Smart Chatbot Communication Through Deep Learning and AI
E-bot7, a German start-up, is becoming known for its innovations that combine chatbots, deep learning AI, and customer service workflows to develop solutions that help customer service representatives just as much as the customers who depend on them.
The First Programmable Memristor Computer: Impacts on Machine Learning and AI Industries
Until now, memristors have primarily been a solution looking for a problem. In a recent development, however, researchers from the University of Michigan claim to have built the first programmable memristor computer.
Has the Limits of Processing Power Been Reached?
As technology advances, so too does the need for more computing power to handle the explosive volumes of data generated. With growing trends in autonomous driving, high-bandwidth data transfer, and cloud computing, leading chipmakers are striving to push out lightning-fast processors every year through many manufacturing and design techniques.
Distinguishing Between AI, Machine Learning, and Natural Language Processing
As the reality of a fourth industrial revolution becomes more certain, you probably come across the terms “artificial intelligence” and “machine learning” more often than you would expect to, however, surprisingly enough, not many of us really understand the difference between them and their relation to one another. When you understand fully what these terms mean, it becomes easier to appreciate their practical implications.
Wireless Health Monitoring Using Integrated and Stretchable Electronics
The wireless, wearable adhesive-free monitor with integrated stretchable electronics could facilitate comfortable, long-term health monitoring without the risks of skin irritation, injury, or allergic reactions that current adhesive sensors carry.
British Startup Blueshift Memory Supercharges Data Operations with New Memory Technology
Though steady CPU enhancements have boosted computational data manipulation, embedded memory is now the largest remaining efficiency bottleneck. Blueshift Memory is actively working to shrink this gap—a development that will significantly benefit genetic research, AI programming, climate modelling, and more.
The Major Differences in Electrical Standards Between the U.S. and Europe
Working on an electrical engineering project for a country other than the one you were educated in is going to be a major challenge—especially when you consider that almost every country in Europe has its own version of electrical standards and codes.
CEO of Dutch Start-Up NOWI on Boosting Sensor and IoT Development with Energy Harvesting Technology
Simon van der Jagt, CEO and co-founder of NOWI, has spent the past few years developing a new energy harvesting IC that uses external energy sources to power connected devices, which could help to overcome problems associated with battery-powered sensors and ultimately enable more effective IoT implementations.
EU Project TEMPO Aims to Produce AI Applications with Emerging Memory Technologies
We’ve witnessed the exponential growth of AI applications in recent years, much of it driven by small companies with large ambitions. However, the EU’s Project TEMPO constitutes a coordinated, European effort to strengthen AI’s future.
