A white paper by Critical Manufacturing, Manufacturing Software for Industry 4.0 - "Embracing Change and Decentralization," has been awarded MESA’s Smart Story Award, demonstrating that technology may be considered a major challenge in achieving Industry 4.0 vision.
A security system is being developed that analyses the user's brainwaves. The system then determines whether the user is in a fit mental state and grants them access to resources only if appropriate. Such a system might be used to control entry to a building, access to computer resources or even the withdrawal of money from an automated teller machine. It could also have applications in the military, electronic learning, and healthcare, according to research published in the "International Journal of Advanced Intelligence Paradigms."
For many, Excel is the go-to analysis tool of choice. However, to find real insight from your data, spreadsheets simply won’t provide you with the answers you seek. In today’s data-driven world the real data wins are found in visual analysis.
Corporations with dense and homogenous internal networks are unlikely to make good use of external knowledge. When networks are more open and workers fill the gaps of their networks by talking to people with different skills, patents production increases
Cyber is a hot issue at the moment, regardless of weather, and the Chancellor has recently set aside £1.9 billion for his new national cyber security strategy for UK's first National College of Cyber Security. This fittingly is set to open at historic Bletchley Park, integral in cracking the Nazi Enigma code thanks to the creative brilliance of Alan Turing. The current development follows a range of recent hacks from San Francisco’s light rail system, throughTesco Bank and to the hacking of recruitment passwords at Michael Page, (below right). He levels the finger of blame at CapGemini's insecurity, with a development server being left online!
As a new presidential administration prepares to take over the U.S., Committee to Protect Journalists author, Alexandra Ellerbeck CPJ Americas Research Associate (below right) examines the status of press freedom, including the challenges journalists face from surveillance, harassment, limited transparency, the questioning of libel laws, and other factors.
‘Walking for Well-Being’, is a prototype app that makes it easy to plan less difficult, less demanding walking routes, and could help people to stay fit, active and independent as they get older. But dig around and you are spoilt for choise on free apps
Sculpteo has announced a new 3D printed metal service called AMT (Agile Metal Technology) which can discover and fix problems with designs, automate procedures and offers optimisation suggestions to facilitate 3D printing metal. Sculpteo showcase the technology at CES.
No, they aren’t talking about “put your phone down, dear, while you are eating your supper” but about drawing together the various elements of advanced semiconductor technology that will go into Home Automation (HA)! At CES 2017 US Bridgetek Solutions will demonstrate its game-changing PanL HA approach.
Back in September, Code Clan declared its intention of opening Glasgow offices. Now that plan is endorsed by the launch of two new Glasgow scholarships for 2017 To celebrate our first birthday and the launch of our first Glasgow course in January 2017, we’re offering two half scholarships, each to the value of £2,250, for two new students
Do you want to be the top or the bull? Well, both options are open to you discovers Gaberlunzie, who tired of the weekly lottery ticket, thought his gelt might be better spent on acquiring stocks and shares. Next came learning who was in the market and how exactly these bulls and bears worked.
If it computes, it’s liable to hijacking unless secured with cast-iron software. Makes you wonder about robots! Alien Vault notes that the Mirai botnet is a malware designed to take control of the BusyBox systems commonly used in IoT devices. BusyBox software is a lightweight executable, capable of running several Unix tools in a variety of POSIX environments that have limited resources. It is an ideal candidate for IoT devices, accordingly, it appears that the DDoS attacks of October 21 have been identified as sourced from XiongMai Technologies equipment.
Disruptive technology companies dominate "The Startups Awards" as winners are announced at London ceremony with winners selected from a diverse range of fields that encompass pet food, pensions and personal grooming. Key factor linking winner success, however, has been the way they have embraced and and pioneered hightech to better serve customers and disrupt established industries.
OAS (Ocean Array Systems) is to use the ORE (Offshore Renewable Energy) Catapult’s 7 MW offshore wind demonstration turbine to validate software designed to improve the control strategies of offshore WTGs. Improved turbine control, adopted farm-wide, could see as much as a 2.4% reduction in the LCOE (Levelled Cost of Energy) of offshore wind, says OAS.
While IBM opens its prize competitions for AI development, Intel launches its Artificial Intelligence, debuting a DLIA (Deep Learning Inference Accelerator) card that is an FPGA (field-programmable gate array)-based hardware and software solution for neural network acceleration. It now has an Arria 10 FPGA optimised for targeted topologies of convolutional neural networks and it claims will become available by 2017.
The IBM Watson AI XPRIZE is a $5 million AI and cognitive computing competition challenging global teams to develop and demonstrate how humans can collaborate with powerful AI technologies to tackle the world’s grand challenges. This prize is focused on creating advanced and scalable applications that benefit both consumer and business across a multitude of disciplines. Solutions will contribute to the enrichment of available tools and data sets for the usage of innovators everywhere. The ultimate goal is also to accelerate the understanding and adoption of AI’s most promising breakthroughs.
Despite its detection, due to the small size of the lander and the resolution of the HiRISE camera on the MRO, the exact configuration of the lander on Mars was not clear - despite collecting 8 images of the lander and use of advanced image processing techniques. Now, however, the researchers from De Montfort University and the University of Leicester have worked together to come up with a new way to detect the lander configuration. The study finds the Mars lander deployed at least three or all four of its solar panels. Well, what would you expect from a loyal and true blue robot!!
Code hosting and collaboration platform, Deveo, has launched free private repositories, with support for Git, Mercurial, and Subversion version control systems, as well as the Dropbox alternative, WebDAV, for storing binary files. Unlike other free code hosting platforms, Deveo allows users to choose their preferred version control system, with unlimited private repositories, and team members.
Ivalua, claiming global leadership in cloud spend management solutions, now offers Ivalua Update 152 (IU 152). Its third major cloud platform update of the year. IU 152 delivers enhanced out-of-the-box deployment, enriched user experience, improved compliance and supplier risk management as well as simpler management of complexity in large organisations.
AI (Artificial Intelligence) software that can learn, adapt and rebuild itself in real-time could help combat climate change. Lancaster University researchers at the Data Science Institute have developed a software system that, for the first time can rapidly self-assemble into the most efficient form, without needing humans intervention. The system – REx – is being developed to work with with vast energy-hungry data centres in mind. Able to rapidly adjust to optimally deal with a huge multitude of tasks, servers controlled by REx would do less processing, consuming less energy.
