Intelligent Senses: Cyborg Locusts and First Humanoid Robot with Intelligent Vision

Did you know that locusts can smell explosives? Did you also know that we can now control their brains to pinpoint to exactly what they are smelling? In this week’s podcast, we start things off with a closer look at how two teams of research scientists created a set of specialized cyborg bomb-sniffing locusts. We check out how these locusts are able to sense explosive chemicals in the air, how they are able to track these explosive smells, and how we can now identify exactly what they are smelling by reading their brain waves. Also this week, Alessandro … Read More → "Intelligent Senses: Cyborg Locusts and First Humanoid Robot with Intelligent Vision"

The Future of Connected Cars: Automotive Cybersecurity and Software Fluency with C2A Security

We are navigating through the twists and turns of automotive security in this week’s Fish Fry podcast. Michael Dick (CEO – C2A Security) joins us for an in-depth discussion about the role software fluency plays in the realm of automotive security, the ongoing issues surrounding cybersecurity lifecycle management, and why Mike believes that without visibility we cannot have security.

Pushing the Display Envelope : Pixelworks’ New AI-Driven Architecture and the World’s Largest Photo Ever Taken in a Single Shot

We’ve got your pixels here! Piping hot pixels! In this week’s podcast, we start things off with an investigation into the world’s largest digital camera being developed at The U.S. Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. We take a closer look at the creation of the focal plane for this groundbreaking new camera and the role that the first 3,200-megapixel digital photo (the largest ever taken in a single shot) will play in solving some of the biggest mysteries of the universe. Keeping with our pixelated theme this week, Vikas Dhurka (Pixelworks) and … Read More → "Pushing the Display Envelope : Pixelworks’ New AI-Driven Architecture and the World’s Largest Photo Ever Taken in a Single Shot"

Adventures in Machine Learning: From Logic Simulation to Exoplanet Identification

Machine learning takes center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! First, we examine a new machine learning algorithm developed by researchers at the University of Warwick Department of Physics and the Alan Turing Institute. We take a closer look at the datasets used in this new algorithm and why this groundbreaking research will help confirm the existence of exoplanets and significantly speed up our understanding of the universe. Keeping with our machine learning theme, Paul Cunningham (Cadence Design Systems) also joins us this week to discuss the details of Cadence’s new machine learning-optimized Xcelium logic simulation … Read More → "Adventures in Machine Learning: From Logic Simulation to Exoplanet Identification"

Calling All Secret Weapons: element14’s Fighting Germs Challenge and A New Way to Fight Superbugs

From COVID-19 to Superbugs, this week’s podcast is all about fighting germs and battling the spread of infectious disease throughout the world. First up, we delve into some groundbreaking research that may have just unlocked a new way to fight drug-resistant superbugs. We take a closer look at why a team of scientists at Biomedicine Discovery Institute at Monash University believes that they have not only found a way to boost our immune responses to superbugs but also fight inflammation due to these pesky pathogens as well. Also this week, Tariq </ … Read More → "Calling All Secret Weapons: element14’s Fighting Germs Challenge and A New Way to Fight Superbugs"

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 at Washington University in St Louis and how it could transform the world’s cheapest and most familiar building materials into electricity storage.

Cylynt and Stealthy

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, its quantum internet…?  In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we start things off with an exploration into the US Government’s plans for a country-wide quantum internet. We investigate the roles quantum entanglement and quantum superposition will play in the future of a quantum internet and what steps will need to be taken to make this kind of unhackable internet a reality. Also this week, Ted Miracco (Cylynt) joins us to discuss why the fight against IP theft is nowhere near done, why SmartFlow Compliance Solutions is now Cylynt and … Read More → "Cylynt and Stealthy"

Advancing into FinFET

In this week’s podcast, we are talking about embedded in-chip monitoring and lifecycle chip design challenges with Stephen Crosher and Oliver King from Moortec. We also take a closer look at a new breakthrough in data storage technology and why a team of researchers from Stanford, UC Berkeley, and Texas A&M believe that tiny slices of tungsten ditelluride may just hold the key to the evolution of data storage.
