Augmented Reality: The Future of Medicine

Augmented Reality (AR), also known as spatial computing --a merging of digital and physical spaces,-- is one of the current technology trends that, together with Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR), is changing all industries, including healthcare and medical education. Even though these technologies are enjoying a lot of attention today, they have been around for a long while. In 1965, Robert Mann introduced the first virtual system in medicine (The Thousand Faces of Virtual Reality).

Augmented Reality: The Future of Building

Augmented Reality (AR), also known as spatial computing, is rapidly growing and expanding into countless business and industrial applications. Spatial computing is used as a broad term to describe the way humans interact with computers in the same surrounding. In other words, in spatial computing machines occupy the same space as humans rather than being contained to one single location. An Augmented Reality system, therefore, makes digital media feel physically present through interactive des

Martian Soil Detox Could Lead to New Antibiotics to Fight Superbugs

Superbugs are bacteria that have developed a resistance to antibiotics. Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is one of the major long-term health challenges that humanity is facing at a global scale. The world is approaching the post-antibiotic era with implications in simple surgery and cancer treatments. It is estimated that 700,000 people die annually of bacteria that are resistant to at least one or several antibiotics. Very few new antibiotics have been introduced to the market during the l

How AI And Huawei Are Transforming the Data Center

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is going to be present in all aspects of life, work, and entertainment. It is possible that AI is even going to manage almost the entire planet at certain point in the future. Data centers are not immune to this reality. On the contrary. In the AI era, data centers need to quickly adapt to the computing power that the future is going to bring. Adding the capability of leveraging AI to reshape business models, make decisions, and improve customer experiences will be

STEMpedia Robotics Learning Platform Teaches STEM Skills to Children

Abhishek Sharma, Co-Founder of STEMpedia, a startup that is developing technology and educational tools to make learning-by-doing accessible and and long-lasting for the young minds believes that even though STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) learning kits have been around on the market for a while, kids don't devote more than a few weeks to them before they forget about them, and the once-exciting learning kits end up forgotten in a closet. "We wanted to create something whic

DataView VR: The Workspace of the Future

If one cold, rainy winter morning you wished you could instantly teleport yourself from your home to the office, avoiding a long commute in packed public transport or wasting precious time stuck in a traffic jam perhaps your dream comes true thanks to a combination of Virtual Reality (VR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. Their combined power creates the workspace of the future with advanced AI-driven model building tools. Now, you could instantly be transformed into your avatar, you

Automotive Electronics Developers Now Can Test-Drive AI Applications

The automotive industry can benefit from innovative and cost-effective ways of using the vast amount of data generated by in-vehicle sensors and control units. When value is extracted from the data, it can help improving vehicle safety and autonomy at lower operational costs. Teraki's new cloud-based Development Center for Artificial Intelligent (AI) applications now enables automotive electronics developers to test-drive using their own data. Automotive electronics applications developers suc

Network Security Tips to Avoid IoT Hacks

We usually talk about preventing hacking in our devices. Yet, as consumers, we don't think too much about the network. With the global explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT), it is important to secure the backbone of those devices: The network. With the network comes the router, which unless it is secure it can leave your devices vulnerable to hacking. A compromised router can give easy access to a hacker; and from there, they can expand to all the devices in the network. The news constantl

Apple Announced Apple Arcade, the New Subscription Gaming Service That Will Redefine Games

"For decades, Apple's been creating world class hardware and world class software. We've also been creating a growing collection of world class services. And that is what today is all about." This is how Apple CEO Tim Cook opened Apple special event's keynote at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California campus. As exciting as it sounds, Apple's keynote was complete with new ways to experience Apple TV, news and magazines, and even an Apple Card, a new and beautifully designed credit card

Is science going to let superbugs win?

Since the discovery of penicillin -the world's first antibiotic- in 1928, antibiotics have served humanity as a powerful tool to kill harmful bacteria. Before antibiotics existed, hundreds of millions of lives were lost to diseases that were untreatable. During the last 70 years, however, bacteria have been fighting back. More and more bacteria have become resistant to antibiotics. They have evolved into almost invincible superbugs with an increased superpower. And they are spreading around the

World Water Day: Satellites Are Key to Addressing Global Water Scarcity

On March 22 we celebrate World Water Day. It is a day when those who are lucky to enjoy daily clean water on demand, often taken it for granted, should stop for a moment to think about those millions of people who still suffer from water shortage. Today, we also have a look at how satellites help from space addressing water scarcity in the hope that this knowledge can provide ideas for solutions that can be implemented in the near future.

Formula 1: Fully Immersive 360-Degree Virtual Reality Application

Sixty-nine years ago, on May 13, 1950, an estimated 200,000 spectators travelled to the Silverstone circuit in England to attend the first race of the Formula One World Championship Grand Prix. The race winner was Italian Giuseppe (Nino) Farina. That year, in 1950, Nino Farina and his team, Alfa Romeo, became the first official Formula One world champion with a total of 30 points. He also won the podium in 1937, 1938, and 1939. Tragically, in 1966, Nino Farina lost control of his Lotus Cortina

Artificial Intelligence and the Fear of the Unknown
