Watching the Weightless

We engineers like things we can count and measure. Our professional comfort zone is in the metrics, multipliers, and deltas – hard data on which we can rest our reassurances that we’ve progressed – solved the world’s problems one bit at a time. Moore’s Law, of course, is a solid long-arc barometer for the engineering collective – a sequence of numbers on which we can hang our collective hats – … Read More → "Watching the Weightless"

Automatic Car Driver Detection

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and, more specifically, Machine Learning (ML) seem finally to have hit the scene in a permanent way. Having grown up watching expert systems and fuzzy logic and other schemes come and go, the stars and planets – not to mention theories, algorithms, and computing power – appear to have aligned to give us something useful.

For a while, ML and “big data” were terms that were … Read More → "Automatic Car Driver Detection"

Intel Kills Off Embedded Boards

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” – traditional proverb

Let the culling commence.

There is apparently no “IoT” in “Intel.” For the umpteenth time, Intel has killed off an embedded product that it all-too-recently hyped as the greatest thing since canned beer. You live and you learn.

Just a few days after it toe-tagged Read More → "Intel Kills Off Embedded Boards"

IP Thieves at the Gate

We all know that cybersecurity, software piracy, and IP theft are becoming bigger and bigger problems in today’s semiconductor industry. But what can we do about it? Dragging our heels and pretending that it’s not a problem isn’t really working out so well, and those cyber thieves are only getting more sophisticated. In this week’s Fish Fry, we welcome Ted Miracco (CEO … Read More → "IP Thieves at the Gate"

More Benchmarks from EEMBC

Everyone loves a hype cycle – at least until the disenchantment phase kicks in. Nothing spoils a party like someone demanding more than just words on a brochure. I mean, after all, anyone should be able to call their widget the highest-performance, lowest-power thing ever, right? Requiring actual evidence is such a downer.

And if you’re talking about the Internet of Things (IoT), then… well, where do … Read More → "More Benchmarks from EEMBC"
