BYOD or BYOM to Synaptics’ AI-Native Edge Compute Party

I have two questions for you. First, what are the three key elements of any platform intended for the internet of things (IoT) and edge computing, both of which are where the internet “rubber” meets the real-world “road”? Second, what springs to your mind when you hear someone drop the company Synaptics into the conversation?

Let’s start with the second question first … Read More → "BYOD or BYOM to Synaptics’ AI-Native Edge Compute Party"

LDRA’s New Security-First Capabilities Meet Missions to Mars and Colonies in Space

I don’t know about you, but I’m really starting to get excited about all the space-related activities that are going on at the moment. I remember the thrill of Apollo 11 and humankind’s first steps on the moon. And I remember the sadness associated with my eventually coming to the realization that the Apollo 17 landing in 1972 would be the last time we visited the moon … Read More → "LDRA’s New Security-First Capabilities Meet Missions to Mars and Colonies in Space"

Issuing a Challenge to Edge AI Processor Manufacturers

Recently (by which I mean over the course of the past year or two), with respect to artificial intelligence (AI) at the edge (where the “internet rubber” meets the “real-world road”), I’ve been bemused and bewildered, flabbergasted and dumbfounded, and entranced and enthralled. To cut a long story short (which is opposite to the way I usually like to do things), I’ve been captivated by … Read More → "Issuing a Challenge to Edge AI Processor Manufacturers"
