The autonomous Bolo tank tracked down the tree-lined lane looking for targets. Suddenly the Bolo’s tracks ground to a halt. Targets spotted. The Bolo’s two top-mounted turrets slowly swiveled as the AI system zeroed in. Up there. On those branches. The Bolo aimed and fired. Targets destroyed. The Bolo robot tank is a fictitious, autonomous, nuclear-powered war-fighting machine that first burst from the fevered … Read More → "Autonomous Robot Tank Eradicates Almond Pests with One Silent Shot"
I love computers (but only in a manly-man way, you understand). I’m not talking about the end-products that sit on our desks, hang out in our pockets, or lurk around us as we meander our way through the world, although I’m certainly fond of these little rascals—I’m much more interested in their “brains” in the form of their processing units where all … Read More → "RISC-V Takes Embedded World 2022 by Storm"
I must admit that I’m starting to feel quite enthused and excited. Of course, these are my usual states of being, so it might be tricky for a casual observer to tell if there’s any difference. The reason for my current invigoration and vivification is that I spent much of the weekend past starting to sketch out the presentations I will be giving in … Read More → "CogniFiber: Computing @ The Speed of Light"
I am an outrageously lucky man. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit many countries and see many things. For example, I’ve given training courses in France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, and Japan; I’ve presented guest lectures at universities in America, England, and Norway; and I’ve been invited to speak at conferences in Hawaii, Brazil, India, China, Taiwan, and South Korea (to name but … Read More → "OMG!

Sowing the Seeds of Change: How Sustainability and Extending Product Life Cycles Can Help Ease Our Supply Chain Woes
We are sowing the seeds of innovation in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Peggy Carrieres from Avnet and I investigate the global supply chain challenges facing our engineering community today. We take a closer look at the role sustainability will play in the future of electronic design and how Avnet’s visual libraries called “Avail” can help you navigate a variety of supply chain and design chain issues. … Read More → "Sowing the Seeds of Change: How Sustainability and Extending Product Life Cycles Can Help Ease Our Supply Chain Woes"
On the one hand, I’m tremendously excited and enthused by all of the amazing things I’m currently hearing regarding deployments of enterprise-level artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL). But (and there’s always a “but”)…
Actually, before we hurl ourselves headfirst into the fray with gusto and abandon, someone asked me earlier today to … Read More → "Using ML to Mine Design Data to Speed and Improve SoC Designs"
