Designing for Voice: Building Trust in Ambient Intelligence

For almost a half-century, the development of Ethernet has moved inexorably in one direction—faster. When Robert Metcalfe co-invented it with his team at Xerox Palo Alto in the 1970s, Ethernet had an initial speed of 2.94 megabits/second over coaxial cable. In 1980, the original 10 Mbit/s standard was published with an additional option: twisted pair copper cables. Fast Ethernet (100Mbit/s) debuted in 1995, followed by Gigabit Ethernet in 1998. Today Industrial Ethernet has reached 400 Gbit/s, and true terabit speeds—exceeding…

Using digital twins for knowledge transfer

Future Work Lab: augmented and virtual reality applications enable cost-effective planning and a faster way to adapt production systems in the event of disruptions on the shop floor. Credit: Fraunhofer IAO/Ludmilla Parsyak Gathering with customers and colleagues at meetings, events, workshops and seminars and collaborating with them in person has always been important—but it is not an option for the foreseeable future. The coronavirus pandemic is forcing us to find new ways of working together. The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial…

How to test HTTP/3 and QUIC with Firefox Nightly

HTTP/3 is the third major version of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, which takes the bold step of moving away from TCP to the new transport protocol QUIC in order to provide performance and security improvements. During Cloudflare’s Birthday Week 2019, we were delighted to announce that we had enabled QUIC and HTTP/3 support on the Cloudflare edge network. This was joined by support from Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, two of the leading browser vendors and partners in our effort…

Innovative 32-Bit Micros Target AI in IoT and Industry 4.0

All industry analysts seem to agree on one thing: The IoT market will grow at one of fastest rates of any modern technology over the coming years.  For example, according to the analysts at specialist industry firm IHS Markit, more than 62 billion devices1 will be connected by the year 2023, essentially doubling the size of the market from its 2019 benchmark. But it’s not just the rate of growth that could cause headaches for those trying to support this…

Laser allows solid-state refrigeration of a semiconductor material — ScienceDaily

To the general public, lasers heat objects. And generally, that would be correct. But lasers also show promise to do quite the opposite — to cool materials. Lasers that can cool materials could revolutionize fields ranging from bio-imaging to quantum communication. In 2015, University of Washington researchers announced that they can use a laser to cool water and other liquids below room temperature. Now that same team has used a similar approach to refrigerate something quite different: a solid semiconductor.…

Qualcomm Brings 5G Modem to Chips for Cheap Smartphones

Qualcomm is looking to roll out its 5G modems to the billions of people unable to afford handsets with the wireless technology inside. The company said it has added an advanced 5G modem for the first time to its line of chips designed for cheap smartphones, in a bid to persuade more people to upgrade to 5G phones at a time when demand has declined globally. Qualcomm has long been the world’s top vendor of chips used in 3G and 4G smartphones.…

World’s fastest Bose-Einstein condensate — ScienceDaily

Researchers have created a Bose-Einstein condensate with record speed, creating the fascinating phase of matter in about 100 femtoseconds. To get an idea of how quick that is, hundred femtoseconds compared to one second is proportionally the same as a day compared to the age of the universe. The project was the result of a collaboration between Aalto University the and University of Eastern Finland. Bose-Einstein condensation is a quantum phenomenon where a large number of particles starts to behave…
