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.
Out of Academia, Into Industry: Printed Electronics Business
Printed, Flexible and Organic Electronics is a market worth $31.6 Billion in 2018, according to IDTechEx Research. The majority of that is for OLED displays, with glass-based versions now entering their golden age and foldable OLEDs and printed OLEDs now entering a phase of commercial growth. Then there is the near $2 Billion market for conductive ink used in many diverse applications and the $3.6 Billion market for sensors, mainly comprising of biosensors so far.
IDTechEx Show! Agenda Live: Connecting Brands & Emerging Technologies

Smart Cities Without Infrastructure
A large proportion of the cost, disruption, pollution and exposure to natural disasters in a city would be eliminated if there were no infrastructure.
Identifying artificial intelligence "blind spots"
A novel model developed by MIT and Microsoft researchers identifies instances in which autonomous systems have "learned" from training examples that don't match what's actually happening in the real world. Engineers could use this model to improve the safety of artificial intelligence systems, such as driverless vehicles and autonomous robots.
