    Article: Extending Wintel collaboration to Nokia?-robert-maire-bloomberg.jpg

    We attended the Needham Growth Conference which is one of the first conferences of the year and in the quiet period before most companies reported so even though there was no "official" comment from most companies on the quarter, the surrounding commentary spoke volumes:

    • The down cycle (and everyone admits its a cycle and no one admits to ever saying it wasn't still cyclical...) is on going and appears to be

    Interestingly, in some circles I’m known as an “Intel basher” but nothing could be further from the truth. I grew up with Intel and give them full credit for bringing serious compute power to our desktops. My first ...

    In all the enthusiasm around machine learning (ML) and intelligent vision, we tend to forget the front-end of this process. The image captured on a CCD camera goes through some very sophisticated image processing before ML even gets to ...

    Article: SoC Implementation, Sometimes You Need a Plan B-generative-design-wikipedia-min.jpg

    Scanning headlines of technology news every day I was somewhat familiar with the phrase "Generative Design" and even browsed the Wikipedia page to find this informative flow-chart that shows the practice of generative design.

    Generative design is an iterative design process that involves a program that will generate a certain number of outputs that meet certain constraints, and a designer that will fine tune the feasible region by changing minimal and maximal values of ...

    Intelligence as in the term artificial intelligence (AI) involves learning or training, depending on which perspective it is viewed from –and it has many nuances. As the basis of most deep learning methods, neural network based learning algorithms have gained usage traction, when it was shown that training with deep neural network (DNN) using ...

    Life is full of convenience-security tradeoffs. Sometimes these are explicit, where you get to make an active choice about how secure or insecure you want things to be. Other times we are unaware of the choices we are making, and how risky they are for the convenience provided. If ...

    It's January so time for my annual update on all things cycling that are being shown at CES this week. For 2018 my cycling goal was 11,440 miles, but an accident on September 1st cut into my goal, however I did reach 10,887.6 miles according to Strava.

    This category continues to grow in 2019, with many vendors offering us lots of choices from commuting to mountain bikes with electric motor assist.

    Halfords has embedded Alexa onto their smart computer bike at CES this year, which is a smart move because it isn't so safe to use your fingers to click a touch screen while cycling, voice control is much safer. Pricing is about ...
