    Article: ARM and a LEG-oems-lead-way-self-driving-tech-jpg

    It's never a good sign when car makers are called before Congress. It's almost as bad as being asked to visit the President. But last week the meeting didn't involve allegations or investigations. It was just an occasion for a friendly chat regarding "Self-Driving Cars: Road to Deployment."

    IEEE Spectrum was kind enough to excerpt notable moments from the Q&A which inadvertently highlighted the confusion

    Article: IBM Tapes Out 14nm ARM Processor on Cadence Flow-coin-cell-battery-min-jpeg

    We’ve become pretty good at reducing power in IoT edge devices, to the point that some are expected to run for up to 10 years on a single battery charge. But what if you wanted to go lower still or ...

    Article: Beneath the Surface lies the first real test-plasmofab-jpg

    In the last year we have seen a marked increase in activity around the integrated photonics space, especially around silicon-based photonics. Last year the American Institute for Manufacturing of Photonics (better known as AIM Photonics) was started to boot-strap U.S. ...

    Article: Power, Predictions and Pills: Jonathan Koomey, ARM TechCon-back-future-jpg

    It’s been 32 years since the successful sci-fi comedy, Back to the Future, saw 17-year old Marty McFly – played by Michael J. Fox - accidentally travel 30 years back in time to 1955. The film was a box-office smash, as audiences worldwide delighted in McFly’s antics, only to ...

    I mentioned adversarial learning in an earlier blog, used to harden recognition systems against bad actors who could use slightly tweaked images to force significant misidentification of objects. It’s now looking like methods of this ...

    DVCon is fast approaching, less than 3 weeks away. As a verification geek, this must be one of my favorite conferences, so I’ll be there; you’ll see me at tutorials, presentations and wandering around the Exhibit hall. (Pictures here from the 2016 ...

    Article: Apple v. Samsung: Mixed Phone Marriages End in Divorce?-machine-learning-dummies-jpg

    I write a lot about data-driven algorithms, in particular those informed by Machine Learning. I thought it would be nice to give the low-down on machine learning for the uninitiated. Below, I discuss four essential questions. The answers are based, in part, from a recent ...

    Article: Xilinx Programmable Packet Processor-turing-machine-min-jpeg

    There’s muttering among computing fundamentalists that perhaps we ought to revisit the definition of computability given recent advances in methods of computing, especially machine learning and quantum computation.

    Computability is about what can and cannot be computed, either by a human or non-human computer. ...

    I can't tell you how many times I have sat down with executives of large companies and startups who have tried to get me excited about geo-fencing. Geo-fencing is a clever little technology that can allow a device maker to restrict access to a device, service or content when that system roams beyond a particular zone of acceptable use either ...
