Eos Embedded Perception Software Sees All

Sit down, take a deep breath, and try to relax. In a few moments, I’m going to show you a video of people (well, dummies that look like people) walking in front of vehicles equipped with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking systems. The results will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. I’m still shaking my head in disbelief at what I … Read More → "Eos Embedded Perception Software Sees All"

Flex Logix Joins the Race to the Inferencing Edge

Have you noticed that there seem to be a lot more products flaunting the fact that they are “Gluten Free” on the supermarket shelves these days? This sort of thing is obviously of interest to the estimated one person out of a hundred who has Celiac disease and is therefore intolerant to gluten, but do these product labels convey useful information … Read More → "Flex Logix Joins the Race to the Inferencing Edge"

Radar to the Rescue: How Ainstein is Improving Our Safety through mmWave IoT Sensing

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we start things off with a very special News You May Have Missed. In this segment, we take a closer look at how a team of researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine (in collaboration with IBM) have identified a “lonely” speech pattern using machine-learning models that can be used to detect loneliness in older adults.   … Read More → "Radar to the Rescue: How Ainstein is Improving Our Safety through mmWave IoT Sensing"

The JOYCE Project to Equip Machines with Human-Like Perception

Did you ever watch the British television science fiction comedy Red Dwarf? The stage for this tale is the eponymous spaceship Red Dwarf, which is an enormous mining vessel that is 6 miles (10 km) long, 5 miles (8 km) tall, and 4 miles (6 km) wide. Series 1 through Series 8 originally aired on BBC 2 between 1988 and 1999 (somewhat reminiscent … Read More → "The JOYCE Project to Equip Machines with Human-Like Perception"
