Constructing A Better Future: Building a Responsible Society through Edge Processing and Bricks for Energy Storage

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we take a closer look at how edge processing can help us build a more responsible society. Gowri Chindalore (NXP) and I discuss the role data management and power efficiency will play in the future of edge processing and how edge processing can help facilitate an equitable, responsible, and productive society. Also this week, we investigate a new technology created … Read More → "Constructing A Better Future: Building a Responsible Society through Edge Processing and Bricks for Energy Storage"

WattIQ Uses Its Power for Good

“You can observe a lot just by watching.” – Yogi Berra

Think of a big pharmaceutical laboratory. People in white lab coats. Big shiny pieces of equipment humming. Lots of high-tech centrifuges, spectrometers, and analyzers. Everything’s clean. Even the refrigerators look special. 

You know what you don’t see? A network. </ … Read More → "WattIQ Uses Its Power for Good"
