Artificial intelligence and machine learning take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast. First, we take a closer look at how a new algorithm called ART (Automated Recommendation Tool) is ushering in a new age of enlightenment in the world of synthetic biology. We investigate how this revolutionary new algorithm was tested and what it means for the future of bioengineered cells. Aaron Tersteeg (Intel) also joins us this week to discuss Intel’s OpenVINO tool kit. Aaron and I chat about the biggest AI inferencing challenges facing us today, the details of the OpenVINO “write once, … Read More → "AI For Everything!"

The man, the myth, the signal integrity legend Eric Bogatin joins Fish Fry this week! We discuss the propagation of misconceptions in our design lives, the law of unintended consequences and what the Henny Youngman principle is all about. Also this week, we take a closer look at the 250MWh CRYOBattery Long Duration Energy Storage Facility and the details behind this super cool new energy storage facility.

“Testing leads to failure, and failure leads to understanding.” – Burt Rutan
In this week’s podcast, we’re talking about testing, testing, and even more testing! We start things off with an investigation into a new microneedle patch developed at Rice University that is hoping to make testing for malaria easier and faster than ever before. Also this week, Geir Eide (Mentor) joins me to discuss the past, present, and future of IC testing. Geir and I discuss why the days of Pass/Fail testing are long gone, why test equipment … Read More → "What is the Meaning of Test?"
In today’s ever-changing electronic engineering ecosystem, system modeling is more important than ever before. In this week’s podcast, Brad Griffin (Cadence Design Systems) joins us to discuss the limitations of system-level modeling today, how system analysis challenges are driving new levels of performance, and how Clarity 3D Transient Solver addresses critical system-level EMI challenges. Also this week, we take a look at the PufferBot – a new Pufferfish-inspired robot developed at the University of Colorado Boulder that aims to improve drone safety.
In this week’s podcast, we have a virtual grab bag of electronic engineering goodness. We start things off with a story about the unique exploration of the Bennu asteroid. We take a closer look at how NASA’S OSIRIS-REx mission successfully mapped out Bennu’s gravity field and how this information has provided vital clues about the formation of asteroids. Also this week, Rob Persons (Smart Embedded Computing) joins us to discuss supply chain security and Xavier Marchand (Interface Concept) and I chat about the trends trends encouraging change in the VPX backplane technology.

It’s creepy! It’s crawly! It’s a design contest too! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Phil Hutchinson (element14) brings us the goods on this year’s spookily spectacular element14 Halloween design competition. Phil and I chat about some of last year’s creepy creations, why this year’s contest is slightly different than the year before, and how you can enter this unique Halloween design competition. Also this week, I check out how a group of astronomers discovered the oldest known black hole and why this discovery may help unlock the mysteries of the evolution … Read More → "Terrible Things to Scare the Children: #adifferenthalloween with element14"
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. We investigate how machine learning can help us unlock the mysteries of natural speech patterns and why this type of research may help us better understand a variety of psychological … Read More → "Radar to the Rescue: How Ainstein is Improving Our Safety through mmWave IoT Sensing"
In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we have a special preview of next week’s AltiumLive 2020 Virtual Summit with Ted Pawela (COO – Altium). Ted and I chat about the goals of this year’s conference, why high speed design will take center stage again this year, and why this conference is a unique collaboration between different engineering communities. We also take a closer look at how a team at UC Berkeley discovered what could be the first building blocks to making carbon transistors and all carbon electronics a reality.
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"
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.
