Digital Technologies Are Shaping the Future of Engineering
Digital processes have already redefined how companies approach manufacturing from an efficiency standpoint. Additionally, the electrical engineering industry has benefited immensely from the proliferation of modern digital tools. These evolving technologies continue to influence how teams and businesses operate on a daily basis.
Intel Reveals Spring Crest and Spring Hill AI Accelerator Chips
At this year’s Hot Chips symposium, held between the 18th and 20th of August, Intel revealed its first entries into the emergent market of AI accelerators—the Intel Nervana NNP-T ‘Spring Crest’ and NNP-I ‘Spring Hill’ chips. With the technology, Intel is aiming to compete against the current leaders in the space: Google, Amazon, and Nvidia, as well as newcomers like Qualcomm and Huawei.
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 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.
