Accelerating public transport with smartphone innovation
Patience may be a virtue, but it’s not a virtue that people want to exercise when commuting. Thankfully, a combination of smartphone innovation and data insights can help improve public transport systems and make journeying to and from work a smoother experience. Here are some examples.
H&C partner with RS to launch an innovative Visual Product Recognition chatbot
The latest addition to RS Components’ leading Digital platform, Quickfinder is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Digital Assistant featuring Visual Product Recognition technology that allows automated product identification with the click of a button.
Tech Trends 2018: The year in innovation
Hack & Craft News present a rundown of eight technology hotspots, strategic topics, and things to watch out for this year.
Black Mirror: Science fiction or a chilling reality?
With the new series due for release next month, Chris Middleton explains why Black Mirror and the real world are already indistinguishable from each other.
Agtech: Where field and server farms meet
The robot farmer is here, but the biggest agtech innovations will come from the IoT, big data, and analytics.
Tech Week: Can it restore confidence in UK innovation?
London’s Tech Week is a superb showcase for the UK technology industry but initiatives like this will do little to help the UK unless the government stops seeing the sector as a threat.
Computer vision: Can AI ever truly emulate the human brain?
Humans have long dreamed of a world whereby robots are used as to aid us in completing menial labour and house chores so we don’t have to. The problem is, it is very difficult to get a robot to move and navigate like a human because it doesn’t have our muscles and nerves, and more importantly, it doesn’t have our brain.
CERN’s asset management supercollider
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is big: the largest and most complex machine in history. CERN’s vast, €7.5 billion particle accelerator runs in a 27km loop under the border between Switzerland and France. Scientists use it to smash subatomic particles together at just under the speed of light, in order to recreate the conditions that existed when the universe was less than a second old.
A qualified "Woo-hoo" for big data
Big Data tools are a game-changer. Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) are reaching the point where they (at least on their own) can no longer enable us to get the maximum insight into the vast amount of information available.
Consciousness and reality – More connected than we think?
Breaking news: your mind can affect the world around us. Sounds like science fiction, right? Or possibly some kind of new age theory that requires crystals and hemp to work. Well, put your scepticism to one side, it might not be so crazy after all.
