Coming to a Screen Near You?

Just over a year ago, we took a look at quantum dots, at least in the incarnation that Nanosys was giving them in smaller LCDs. Well, they’ve just announced a new process of applying to the dots to films so that they can be used to form larger screens – arbitrarily large, including TVs. They call the result Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF).

According to them, your colorful screen isn’t showing you nearly what it could be. By a rather large margin; they claim you’re viewing a gamut only 20-35% of what the human eye can discern; they claim to raise that number to 60%.

Machine Learning at the Edge: Applications and Challenges

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Silicon Labs

Machine learning at the TinyEdge is the way of the future but how we incorporate machine learning into our designs can take a variety of different forms. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia chats with Dan Kozin from Silicon Labs about how you can add machine learning to your next design. They investigate what machine learning workflows look like, what machine learning tools you can utilize and the key challenges you will encounter as a machine learning developer.
