This is one of the stories I enjoyed writing the most. I came across it again by accident and I think it’s worth revisiting:
Well, this is far from the first. Automakers, designers and journos have been salivating about concepts for autonomous vehicles that don’t need those annoying steering wheels.
This article looks at purpose-built autonomous shuttles and examines the emotional factors that will be crucial for consumer acceptance.
Synthetic biology can create new organisms or marry the biological to the mechanical.
We like our historic city centers to seem … historic. Not a bunch of cameras and sensors and cell repeaters stuck onto those charming stone surfaces. It turns out there are plenty of ways to provide intelligent services without digging or pasting.
Investing in more sustainable port operations can be expensive–but the return on investment makes it worth it. This post for Ericsson details how digital transformation, enabled by fast and reliable connectivity, can help port operators optimize everything from vessel berthing to routing of autonomous forklifts to improve ROI.
I was nonplussed when I got an assignment to write about which areas of cybersecurity automakers needed to focus on. Unfortunately, attack surfaces keep growing. This article explores threats from the factory and backend systems to the latest exploits against cars themselves.
I worked with the PR agency for IBM Research on this blog post explaining a new architecture for computer chips; how it advanced the science of semiconductors; and the potential benefits.
I worked with IBM Research’s public relations agency on this post about breaking the 100-qubit barrier in quantum computing.
Service-oriented architectures have been a standard approach in the IT world for decades. And it’s been on automakers’ agendas for at least five years. As over-the-air updates become more important for basic safety and infotainment features, moving to SOAs becomes imperative.
