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 Appeal Behind Designing Low-Power Electronics
In 1947, William Shockley, alongside a team of physicists at Bell Labs, demonstrated the first practical transistor, one of the earliest efforts at low power electronic design. The transistor replaced the bulky and energy-demanding vacuum tubes used at the time and paved the way for smaller electronics with lower power consumption.
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.
Safety Soldering Procedures for Electrical Engineers
Every electrical engineer has, at some point, come in contact with a soldering iron and some rolled up piece of solder. Surprisingly, there are scores of engineers who say they have had long careers where they never had to use a soldering iron. In practice, many electrical engineers won’t need to do much or any soldering at all in modern jobs, thanks to surface mount technology and “plug and play” electronics design.
Addressing Energy Inefficiency in Wi-Fi Systems and Infrastructure
The intensive use of Wi-Fi communications has led to the growth of W-Fi infrastructure worldwide. Due to the huge amounts of data transmission, however, these consume a whole lot of power that is lost as heat. This shouldn't (and doesn't need to) be the case.
Electronic Device Security Experts Weigh in on Insecure Electronics Use by the Military
At the end of last month, a report by the Pentagon's inspector general revealed the US Department of Defense (DoD) spent over $32.8 million in the 2018 fiscal year on electronics with known security vulnerabilities.
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.
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.
The ‘Beyond 5G’ Wireless Transceiver and The Future of High Speed Connectivity
A new radio chip from the University of California, Irvine (UCI), may have already paved the way for futuristic 6G, despite 5G cellular network standard still being in its infancy. Developed by electrical engineers at UCI’s Nanoscale Communication Integrated Circuits labs, the product promises to deliver up to 4 times greater speed and significantly higher bandwidth than 5G.
Cal Test CT4140A 4mm Fuse Adapter Prioritises User and Electrical Safety Measures
Cal Test Electronics has unveiled a new 4mm fuse adapter, setting their sights on ultimate flexibility and electrical safety. The CT4140A is designed to accommodate a variety of electrical applications, delivering on its potential as an essential tool for engineers.
How Much Time Do Electrical Engineers Spend on Testing and Inspection?
Virtually every residential building, facility, or industrial plant requires myriad electrical systems to run various processes. This calls for extensive testing and inspection to ensure the reliability of assets and user safety.
