Electric Vehicle Charging Interface Initiative Welcomes STMicroelectronics

The Charging Interface Initiative e. V., CharIN, an open association founded to develop and establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the standard for charging all kinds of battery-powered electric vehicles, and STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications and a pioneer in making vehicles safer, greener, and more […]

Artificial intelligence uncovers new insight into biophysics of cancer

New research shows that artificial intelligence (AI) can help scientists in fields such as oncology and regenerative medicine control complex biological systems to reach new and previously unachievable outcomes. At Tufts University, treating frog embryos with three reagents selected by an AI model resulted in something never before seen: a loss of concordance among pigment […]

Using Artificial Intelligence Both In Apps And In The Aisles

Photographer: Patrick T. Fallon/Bloomberg If the basics of retail are elementary, then it should be no surprise that a technology named Watson is leading what may be one of the biggest trends in 2017. Watson is the name of an artificial intelligence technology (AI) by IBM; many may remember Watson for its $1 million winning […]

Microsoft explains how Artificial Intelligence will shape our future

Artificial Intelligence has taken the center stage when it comes to the technology battleground and there is no reason to deny the major role it will play in pivoting the tech industry in general to the next level of innovation. It is one of the very few domains where it will make the computers work […]

Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking Warn of Artificial Intelligence Arms Race

Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have joined prominent artificial intelligence researchers in pledging support for principles to protect mankind from machines and a potential AI arms race. An open letter published by the Future of Life Institute (FLI) on Monday outlined the Asilomar AI Principles—23 guidelines to ensure the development of artificial intelligence that is beneficial to […]

Wearables Get Flexible with e-Stickers

Wearable devices must bridge the gap between performance, comfort and cost-effectiveness. Will flexible, electronic decals—capable of high manufacturing throughput—be the answer? Wearable medical devices offer patients and healthcare providers significant promise in terms of quality of life by improving data collection while allowing for greater patient mobility. (Related: Dow Corning: Silicone Soft Skin Adhesive) But […]

Tiny Bluetooth Module Ideal for Wearable IoT Applications

Wearable devices are just part of the Internet of Things (IoT), and they were all around the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show. They offer mobility and personality that other IoT devices do not. Bluetooth is the dominant wireless technology for wearable devices, but these devices require compact Bluetooth support. This typically means custom designs that must […]

3D Printing Has Potential to Create Wearable, Stretchable Electronic Devices

Stretchable electronics—electronic devices that can be elongated, compressed, or twisted to fit practically any surface— have potential for dozens of applications. But intergrading the wide variety of materials needed to make an electronic device with stretchable components has proved to be challenging. Researchers at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (S&T) are tackling this […]

Affordable innovation with the AON-M 3D printer

3D Printing Industry first took a look at Canadian 3D printing company, AON3D in 2015. At the time they were raising funds for a successful Kickstarter. With a few years under their belts plus the validation of commercial success the company is now back on our radar. With their AON-M 3D printer, the company is […]
