I was just chatting with the folks at Synaptics about their recently launched FlexSense family of teeny-tiny multi-modal smart sensor processors. Actually, I was thinking about … Read More → "Reimagining How Humans Engage with Machines and Data"
I was recently introduced to what may be the future (or one future in this slice of the multiverse) of mixed-reality headsets. As a result, I’m currently squirming in my seat squealing in excitement. Now that I come to think about it, this is my usual modus operandi, so I just dispatched the butler to retrieve an appropriate pair of trousers.

If I were feeling uncouth, I might even go so far as to say I was gobsmacked. How could something as awesome as what I am about to discuss have existed for so long without my knowing anything about it?
Although the vast majority of people in the embedded and IoT industries are bouncing back and forth and jumping up and down singing the praises of digital systems and digital signal processing (DSP), it’s the topics of analog systems and analog signal processing (ASP) that have been much on (what I laughingly call) my mind of late.
I think I’ve just seen the future of embedded systems and the “things” that form the Internet of Things (IoT). From what I can tell, it’s going to be a virtualized future that contains a cornucopia of containers. If only I knew more about virtualization in general, and containers in particular, I could rule the world.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think that one of the biggest game-changers heading our way is the combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR). Together, these two tantalizing technologies are going to change the ways in which we interact with our systems, the world, and each other.
