Embedded computing is the name of the game in this week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. First up, Roy Keeler (ADLINK) and I chat about how we can overcome processor speed bumps, the general rule of thumb when it comes to spectrum dominance, and the evolution (and future trajectory) of GPPs. In our second interview this week, Mike Slonosky (Curtiss-Wright) and I talk about the increased … Read More → "Controlling the Spectrum and the Future of Battlefield Tech"
AI in edge devices is expected to experience mind-blowing growth over the next half decade, with predictions exceeding 100% CAGR. That means our IoT devices are going to be getting smart, and doing it quickly. Most of the applications of AI in edge or endpoint devices centers on sensors. Our devices are equipped with increasing numbers of increasingly complicated sensors, drowning our devices in data. In most applications, however, it … Read More → "More AI at the Edge"

You can go online right now, sign up for an AccelStore account, and within minutes (four of them, according to Accelize) you can hop on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and OVH platforms and be happily gZIpping at 25x the speed of a CPU, find/replacing 6,000x the speed of sed, real-time transcoding HD BMP video to JPG, and … Read More → "App Store for Acceleration"
Tell a crowd of nerds that software is coming to an end, and you’ll get laughed out of the bar. The very notion that the amount of software and software development in the world will do anything besides continue on an exponential growth curve is unthinkable in most circles. Examine any industry data and you’ll see the same thing – software content is … Read More → "The End of Software"
