The Future of IoT As We Know It – How Multi-Technology Collaboration will Shape the Next Wave of IoT Innovation

What do swarming robots, LoRa, and the future of IoT communications have in common? This week’s Fish Fry podcast!  We start things off with an investigation into a new robotic research project developed by Notre Dame assistant electronic engineering professor Yasemin Ozkan-Aydin. We take a closer look at the details of these new swarming robots and how they maneuver in challenging environments and accomplish difficult tasks collectively. Also … Read More → "The Future of IoT As We Know It – How Multi-Technology Collaboration will Shape the Next Wave of IoT Innovation"

Machine Learning: Esperanto coaxes 1092 RISC-V Processors to Dance on the Head of a Pin, er Chip

Dave Ditzel has a legendary history with computing and microprocessors. He joined AT&T Bell Labs to work on C language development. While there, he developed several generations of processors designed to execute optimized compiled C programs including CRISP, Bell Labs’s “C-language Reduced Instruction Set Processor.”

At Bell Labs, Ditzel also co-authored the foundational RISC document, “The Case … Read More → "Machine Learning: Esperanto coaxes 1092 RISC-V Processors to Dance on the Head of a Pin, er Chip"

The Challenges of On-Device AI Development and Yes, AI Can Predict the Rain Better than the Weatherman

Artificial Intelligence reigns supreme in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! First up, we take a closer look at DeepMind’s new foray into rainfall prediction. We investigate how DeepMind’s deep generative model of rain tool supports the advancement of precipitation nowcasting and how it compares to current methods of precipitation forecasting. Keeping with our AI theme this week, Pulin Desai (Cadence Design Systems) … Read More → "The Challenges of On-Device AI Development and Yes, AI Can Predict the Rain Better than the Weatherman"

Eyes on the Prize: element14’s Spy Nerd Challenge and MIT’s New Robot Finds Lost Items

In this week’s podcast, we start things off with a closer look at a new robotic system developed by a team of researchers at MIT called RFusion. We investigate how it combines RF information, visual data, and neural networks to find and retrieve objects with ease. (Spoiler alert: it can even find objects when they are buried under a pile and fully out of view.) Also … Read More → "Eyes on the Prize: element14’s Spy Nerd Challenge and MIT’s New Robot Finds Lost Items"
