Growth comes as every industry achieves efficiency, automating process robotically. Being unique in that robots can perform multiple steps without human intervention and can adapt to different conditions and manipulate different types of devices thanks to the sensors, the cameras and the software, robots become endowed with flexibility.
Anyone who picks up "2040" by Graham Tottle and reads its back cover will certainly learn that the author is an Anglo-Scot. With forbearing seafarers from Orkney and Hull, there's understandably lots of lovely writing about boats and yachts, but equally inclusive of nuclear power, robots and surveillance. Obviously as the work of a Cambridge trained historian and computer scientist, you would expect and will find the novel to be truly scientific, dimensional and 'technology-couth.'
As a Japanese company Softbank offers a robot that expresses emotion researchers in Bangladesh design a computer programme that can accurately recognise users’ emotional states by as much as 87% of the time, depending on the emotion, but especially the extremes of joy and anger.
Everyone knows R2D2!! Now consider C2D2!! the Paraswift robot that has won an award in the ‘Prolongation of service life’ category in an international competition at the COIN (Concrete Innovation Conference ) on 13 June 2014 held for the first time this year.
Infineon Technologies AG and International Rectifier Corporation have signed to Infineon acquiring International Rectifier for $40 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $3 billion.
The DARPA GXV-T (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Ground XVehicleTechnology program) aims to introduce technology and mobility to make fighting vehicles more mobile, effective and affordable, by replacing the expensive and slow 'more armour' paradigm for fighter's protection.
A simulation study of Ge (germanium) and Si (silicon) pOS FinFET to demonstrate that Si strain, silicide contact resistance, BTBT (band to band tunnelling) and GIDL (gate induced drain leakage) all contribute to Ge being less than ideal as a replacement for current silicon FinFETs has been undertaken by an intriguing team, half located in Glasgow, Scotland and half in San Jose, California.
A solid state battery that would replace the conventional liquid electrolytes used in lithium-ion batteries could eventually store twice as much energy as a conventional one, and could be about to move beyond niche applications into wearable devices, phones, and even electric cars.
Another Skills Investment Plan, this aimed at helping Scotland’s engineering and advanced manufacturing sector attract the new entrants it needs has been launched by SDS (Skills Development Scotland) together with key industry figures, stakeholders and employers at the Glasgow Science Centre.
If anyone flung themselves wholeheartedly into the Glasgow Games it has to have been Cisco. In its wrap-up session, the official network infrastructure sponsor of Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, reveals some details of what was involved and what is ongoing.
The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has awarded Lockheed Martin a deal worth £90 million to replace its command and control system. Unisys latest news is acquiring CapGemini as a Stealth VAR (value added reseller).
IBM scientists unveil a breakthrough software ecosystem designed for programming silicon chips with an architecture inspired by the function, low power, and compact volume of the working brain. This technology should enable a new generation of intelligent sensor networks that mimic the brain’s abilities for perception, action, and cognition.
The UK government takes a leaf out of the Isle of Man approach to crypto currencies and is about to review the trade in virtual currencies to investigate whether it should regulated. That means researchers may well get to go to the Crypto Valley summit from 17-18 September. Some people have all the luck!!
