IBM Launches Responsible Sourcing Blockchain Network
The Responsible Sourcing Blockchain Network, a blockchain network committed to strengthening human rights and environmental protection in mineral supply chains, announced that its digital supply chain for cobalt has moved beyond pilot phase and is progressing toward use in live production computing environments starting in spring 2020.
Unmanned, fully-autonomous ship that will cross the Atlantic
A global consortium of partners, led by marine research organization ProMare, is building an unmanned, fully-autonomous ship that will cross the Atlantic on the fourth centenary of the original Mayflower voyage in September 2020.
Movesense Sensor Platform Enables Fast Development of Wearable Devices
Movesense has helped product teams in sports, healthcare, and other industries take wearable technology to market in as little as eight weeks
AI to outsmart Auckland storms
Technology to help predict where power outages will likely occur during severe weather events and proactively identify vegetation trouble spots that might interfere with powerlines is being progressively rolled out by Vector and IBM for the Auckland electricity network.
Teaching AI to create visuals with more common sense
Today's smartphones often use artificial intelligence to help make the photos we take crisper and clearer. But what if these AI tools could be used to create entire scenes from scratch?
New AI programming language goes beyond deep learning
General-purpose language works for computer vision, robotics, statistics, and more.
Sensor-packed glove learns signatures of the human grasp
Wearing a sensor-packed glove while handling a variety of objects, researchers have compiled a massive dataset that enables an AI system to recognize objects through touch alone. The information could be leveraged to help robots identify and manipulate objects, and may aid in prosthetics design.
Giving robots a better feel for object manipulation
A new learning system improves robots' abilities to mold materials into target shapes and make predictions about interacting with solid objects and liquids. The system, known as a learning-based particle simulator, could give industrial robots a more refined touch — and it may have fun applications in personal robotics, such as modelling clay shapes or rolling sticky rice for sushi.
In robotic planning, physical simulators are models that capture how different materials respon
Learn, connect, partner and profit at Canada's premier industry event
CPES2019 explores the broad spectrum of flexible, printable and hybrid electronics and the value chain required to bring innovative products and applications to market.
Cambridge spin-out starts producing graphene at commercial scale
A recent University of Cambridge spin-out company, Paragraf, has started producing graphene - a sheet of carbon just one atomic layer thick - at up to eight inches (20cm) in diameter, large enough for commercial electronic devices.
Quantum computing: from the qubit to a commercial reality
Quantum computers have been a dream for over 40 years, which comes from harnessing the laws of quantum physics to process information. IDTechEx technology analyst Dr Luyun Jiang explores the future possibilities of this technology, based on her findings at CES 2019.
Bad Strategy Will Kill Some Carmaking Giants Soon
Bad strategy rather than tactics, such as misjudged new models, will kill several major automotive companies. They face a perfect storm of peak car, totally new technology, totally new markets and recession.
