Watson, can you grow into a multibillion-dollar business and become the engine of IBM’s resurgence? IBM is betting its future that the answer is yes. Its campaign to commercialize Watson, the company’s version of artificial intelligence technology, stands out, even during the current A.I. frenzy in the tech industry. IBM has invested billions of dollars in its Watson business unit, created at the start of 2014, which now employs an estimated 10,000 workers. ** At the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Watson was tested on 1,000 cancer diagnoses made by human experts. In 99 percent of them, Watson recommended the same treatment as the oncologists. In 30 percent … Continue reading

コンピュテーショナルデザインを実務で実践したいと思ったときに、いかにもといった「奇天烈な形状」を生み出すことに抵抗を感じていた。それでコンピュテーショナルな手法でナチュラルなランドスケープをデザインすることを思いついた。「NBF大崎ビル(ソニーシティ大崎)」のランドスケープがそれだ。 簡単に言えば、コンピューターのバーチャルな地形の中に、まず人為的にデザインされた植栽計画をする。それをコンピューターの中で、植物相互の近接性や、日照条件、通風条件などを反映して淘汰された状況をシミュレーションする。園路は、植物を愛し、植物の根元を避け、人間に歩きやすいルートを探す仮想の獣を配して、それが踏み固めたルートを採用する。コンピューターの中で40年ほど育ててみて、具合のいい風景が生じたスキームがあったら、その40年後のナチュラルに見える状態を、実際の敷地に張り付けるというデザイン手法である。

A user would never like to enter its data or information in the website if he/she feels that it would be insecure. Any unauthorized access may lead to identity theft which may subsequently lead to dire consequences. So the main problems associated with the website can be named as: 1. Loss of control: The user has to rely on the provider to ensure data security and privacy, resource availability, monitoring of services and resources. 2.

A whole range of products can now take advantage of Vantablack’s astonishing characteristics, thanks to the development of a new spray version of the world’s blackest coating material. The new substance, Vantablack S-VIS, is easily applied at large scale to virtually any surface, whilst still delivering the proven performance of Vantablack. Vantablack‘s nano-structure absorbs virtually all incident light, enabling the performance of precision optical systems to be optimized. The material’s developer, UK-based Surrey NanoSystems, has mimicked the performance of its original Vantablack with a new version that can be sprayed onto objects, rather than deposited using a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. Vantablack S-VIS greatly widens the potential applications space, … Continue reading

Five years ago, one of the worst earthquakes in history triggered a 10-metre high tsunami that crashed into the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station causing multiple meltdowns. Today, the radiation at the Fukushima plant is still so powerful it has proven impossible to get into its bowels to find and remove the extremely dangerous blobs of melted fuel rods. The plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) , has made some progress, such as removing hundreds of spent fuel roads in one damaged building. But the technology needed to establish the location of the melted fuel rods in the other three reactors at the plant has not been developed. The … Continue reading

I was driving 70 mph on the edge of downtown St. Louis when the exploit began to take hold. Though I hadn’t touched the dashboard, the vents in the Jeep Cherokee started blasting cold air at the maximum setting, chilling the sweat on my back through the in-seat climate control system. Next the radio switched to the local hip hop station and began blaring Skee-lo at full volume. I spun the control knob left and hit the power button, to no avail.

The Active Denial System (ADS) is needed because it’s the first non-lethal, directed-energy, counter-personnel system with an extended range greater than currently fielded non-lethal weapons. Most counter-personnel non-lethal weapons use kinetic energy (rubber rounds, bean bags, etc.). A kinetic-based system has a higher risk of human injury, and its effectiveness varies in relation to the size, age and gender of the target. The Active Denial System, however, is consistently effective regardless of size, age and gender and has a range greater than small-arms range. The Active Denial System will provide military personnel with a non-lethal weapon that has the same effect on all human targets.

The spear and the arrow extended the arm, the telescope extended the eye, and now the Kissinger kissing device extends the mouth. Every technology we’ve ever made has also altered the way we live. So how different will our lives be if the future we choose is the one with all these robots in it? More to the point, how will we power that future?

Trojans have the same right on the system as does the logged in user. In other words, if the user can, the Trojan can. This includes deleting or modifying files, installing other software, uninstalling software, or sending sensitive password and login information to a remote attacker. Regardless of how the infection gets on the system, once installed, the system is under the control of the attacker. Often, the attacker will share the list of zombied systems with others, giving unfettered access to their collection of zombie machines by other ill-intended criminals. Attackers can also often simply scan for compromised machines, which often send a greeting of readiness to listening ears. … Continue reading

China has moved a step closer to creating a supersonic submarine that could travel from Shanghai to San Francisco in less than two hours. New technology developed by a team of scientists at Harbin Institute of Technology’s Complex Flow and Heat Transfer Lab has made it easier for a submarine, or torpedo, to travel at extremely high speeds underwater. In theory, a supercavitating vessel could reach the speed of sound underwater, or about 5,800km/h, which would reduce the journey time for a transatlantic underwater cruise to less than an hour, and for a transpacific journey to about 100 minutes. However, supercavitation technology has faced two major problems. First, the submerged … Continue reading

三菱重工業は、防衛省の委託を受けて研究開発を進めているステルス戦闘機の試作機を、来年1月に初飛行させる方針を固めた。国内企業による初のステルス戦闘機開発で、防衛省は性能やコストを確認した上で、実用化するかどうか2018年度までに最終判断する方針だ。 ステルス機は中国やロシアが既に試作機を飛行させるなど開発を進めている。日本も09年に、世界最高のステルス性を備えた米国のF22の導入を目指したが、情報流出を警戒する米国の禁輸措置で断念した。このため、防衛力の強化には独自技術の蓄積が必要と判断。国内企業の戦闘機生産も、日米で共同開発した戦闘機F2全94機の生産が11年に完了してから途絶えており、国内防衛産業の生産基盤や技術の維持、向上を図る狙いもある。 政府は00年度以降、ステルス技術の研究に着手。09年度からは、総事業費392億円をかけて試作機の開発を進めていた。試作機のステルス関連技術はすべて三菱重工業など国内企業が開発。敵のレーダーから届いた電波を真っすぐに反射して探知されないよう、機体や外板接合面の形状を設計した。 航空自衛隊に配備予定の最新鋭ステルス機F35(米ロッキード・マーチン社製)はレーダー上で直径10センチほどの物体として認識されるとされ、試作機もこれと同水準の性能を目指している。IHIや富士重工業なども、エンジンや主翼などの主要部材を受け持つ。 三菱重工がエンジンやシステムの作動テスト、基本的な飛行試験などを行った上で、来年3月末までに防衛省に機体を引き渡す。同省は15年度から2年間かけて実戦を想定した試験飛行を重ね、ステルス性や飛行性能を詳しく検証する方針。航空自衛隊が保有する戦闘機のうち、F2が30年代ごろから退役するため、後継機の選択肢に国産ステルス機を加えたい考えだ。

The PD-100 Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance System, unveiled to the American public for the first time last week at the Association of the United States Army Expo in Washington, D.C., is a drone (actually, a pair of them) that a soldier can carry and operate as easily as he or she would a radio.

The rocket started veering off course right after leaving the pad, deviating from the vertical path in various directions and then plunged to the ground seconds later nose first. The payload section and the upper stage were sheered off the vehicle moments before it impacted the ground and exploded. By July 9, it is transpired that investigators sifting through the wreckage of the doomed rocket had found critical angular velocity sensors, DUS, installed upside down. Each of those sensors had an arrow that was suppose to point toward the top of the … Continue reading

Obviously, science has wonderful potential to control disease, create new fuel supplies, engineer efficient food sources, and even allow us to migrate to new worlds. The problem, of course, is that every technology is a double-edged sword. The rocket engine that carries the space shuttle can also carry warheads. The medical breakthroughs that can eradicate disease–genetic research, for example-if misused, can bring about the end of the human race.

Information has become the new high ground in the game of aerial combat. Globally, and especially in Asia, this has been reflected by sustained high levels of investment in capabilities historically operated only the US and NATO nations, such as AWACS/AEW&C and networking of combat aircraft, AWACS/AEW&C and ground based surveillance systems.

Are all small gadgets worthless? No, but I do hope that in the future manufactures will make functionality a higher priority and focus less on saving a few centimeters here and there. Gadgets like cell phones do need to be small, but not so tiny that they lose in practicality what they gain in portability. If an item fits comfortably into a pocket, then most of us aren’t going to be overly eager to downsize based solely on size if it costs us features. So hopefully the trend of making tiny gadgets just for the sake of simply doing so will end, and going forward, manufactures will find ways to … Continue reading

But the answers to the questions: “Why did Microsoft win” and “Why did IBM lose” are really different. IBM had never met a competitor like Bill Gates before – one quite so ruthless and opportunistic.

Don Estridge saw the PC as more than a standalone computer. He correctly anticipated that the PC would become an intelligent workstation and many functions would be completed by a host plus a PC. Many groups in IBM feared that the PC business would harm the more profitable areas of IBM. IBM dragged its heels producing more powerful PCs because of this. The IBM PS/2 line of computers was a dismal failure because the prices were high and customers didn’t understand why a different bus architecture was needed. Microsoft let IBM sink many millions of dollars into OS/2 while Microsoft developed Windows. Even though many in the PC industry considered … Continue reading

There are sustaining innovations and there are disruptive innovations. A sustaining innovation tends to be an incremental improvement on current products or services and doesn’t affect existing markets. A disruptive innovation, however, displaces existing products or services and changes existing markets. All of us have experienced disruptive technologies. When I was a kid, I took pictures on 35mm films and developed them in a darkroom myself. Two years ago on Sandia Peak in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I was surprised to meet a guy who was still using a 35mm film camera. But the market nowadays is dominated by digital cameras. An example of disruptive innovation in IT was the displacement … Continue reading

When I began my search for an answer to the puzzle of why the best firms can fail, a friend offered some sage advice. “Those who study genetics avoid studying humans,” he noted. “Because new generations come along only every thirty years or so, it takes a long time to understand the cause and effect of any changes. Instead, they study fruit flies, because they are conceived, born, mature, and die all within a single day. If you want to understand why something happens in business, study the disk drive industry. Those companies are the closest things to fruit flies that the business world will ever see.” Why was it … Continue reading

The 15-minute short film, Many Worlds, described as a bizarre physics experiment, has an alternate ending for every viewing, and decides between its endings based on how the audience reacts during the screening. Before the film airs, audience will be strapped with small sensors to help measure their heart rate, muscle tension, brainwave activity, and how much they’re sweating. These data help the movie identify the interactivity level and mood so the film can select upcoming scenes accordingly. If an audience is feeling restless, the movie may insert intense, slow music to induce fear. If an audience is bored, an exciting action sequence may appear to keep their attention. It’s … Continue reading

Facts: The most important factor in software work is the quality of the programmers. The best programmers are up to 28 times better than the worst programmers. Adding people to a late project makes it later. The working environment has a profound impact on productivity and quality. Hype (about tools and techniques) is the plague on the house of software. New tools/techniques cause an initial loss of productivity/quality. Software developers talk a lot about tools, but seldom use them. One of the two most common causes of runaway projects is poor estimation. Software estimation usually occurs at the wrong time. Software estimation is usually done by the wrong people. Software … Continue reading

The U.S. wants back into the manufacturing game, but the industry has had to weigh this desire to create new jobs and stimulate the economy against the reality of competing against lower operating costs elsewhere in the world. Whereas traditional assembly-line work may never return stateside in a big way, manufacturers and government agencies have begun placing bets on additive manufacturing technologies—including 3-D printing—that they believe could represent the industry’s future. Additive manufacturing processes create 3-D objects based on a computer file by sequentially depositing thin layers of liquid or powdered metals, polymers or other materials on a substrate. Three-dimensional printing is either synonymous with or a subcategory of additive … Continue reading

Glasgow Caledonian University

Researchers at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) worked in partnership with colleagues at Maastricht University and Danish biomechanical firm AnyBody Technology to develop the pioneering human foot simulation. The Glasgow/Maastricht Foot Model uses computer technology to model the many bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons which make up the human foot. It will lead to the manufacture of better made and more efficient orthotic devices which should cut recovery times and reduce symptoms for the roughly 200 million Europeans who suffer from disabling foot and ankle conditions.

The Economist (“Schumpeter” Column)

Confirmation as to how seriously some companies are taking additive manufacturing, popularly known as 3D printing, came when GE Aviation bought a privately owned company called Morris Technologies. Morris Technologies has invested heavily in 3D printing equipment and will be printing bits for a new range of jet engines. Morris Technologies uses a number of 3D printing machines, all of which work by using a digital description of an object to build it in physical form, layer by layer. One of the attractions of printing parts is that it saves material. Instead of machining components from solid billets of metal, in which much of it may be cut away, only … Continue reading

During the Civil War, it is believed that over one-third of the nation’s money was counterfeited. This can be largely blamed on the fact that each bank used to print their own money back then, making it so 4,000 types of money were hard to distinguish from the 7,000 types of counterfeit! But nowadays, money and all counterfeiting matters are closely guarded by the Secret Service, who takes pride in investigating each and every counterfeiting case. Plus, money is no longer printed by banks; rather, a national currency was adopted in 1863. While the traditional means of money counterfeiting used to be offset printing, technology has caused a surge in … Continue reading

The car is a 2013 Lexus LS carrying equipment that includes on-board radar and video cameras to monitor the road and the driver. Toyota’s driverless features involve car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure technologies. The cameras and radar equipment can detect traffic signals, lane lines and other vehicles. The technology aims to prevent crashes—a Toyota spokesman said zero collisions are the goal. The car can be driver-assisted or completely self-driving. When a driver is at the wheel, Toyota’s technology could boost safety by detecting obstacles or alerting the driver if the driver is falling asleep. Toyota refers to its “Intelligent Transport Systems” technology. As part of the ITS concept, beacons detect the positions … Continue reading

Hyperstealth announced Smartcamo; an intelligent textile which changes its color to match the background of the wearer in almost all environments. Further application of Smartcamo onto ground vehicles is expected to precede any wide scale uniform program as power and processors are one limiting factor for the individual soldier application. Guy Cramer, President/CEO of HyperStealth, also announced Quantum Stealth (Light Bending material) non-powered adaptive camouflage which portrays what is behind the user in-front of the user bending the light around the target. The cost is inexpensive, very lightweight and there are no power requirements.

The U.S. military is backing the development of camouflage fabrics that could one day make their soldiers completely invisible, it has been claimed. The so-called ‘Quantum Stealth’ camouflage material is said to render its wearers completely invisible by bending light waves around them. Its makers claim the material, which is in effect similar to the invisibility cloak worn by Harry Potter, can even fool night-vision goggles. However, its development is apparently so secret the Canadian company behind it says it cannot even show the technology in action and offers only mock ups of its effect on their website.

The promise of hypersonic flight sending us halfway around the world in a matter of hours is being bandied about again, this time by a British company that declares, with all due humility, that it has made “the biggest breakthrough in aerospace propulsion technology since the invention of the jet engine.” Reaction Engines Limited says its hypersonic engine will send us streaking across the sky at speeds well over Mach 5, allowing us to have bagels for breakfast in New York and sushi for lunch in Tokyo.

Unicode is intended to address the need for a workable, reliable world text encoding. Unicode could be roughly described as “wide-body ASCII” that has been stretched to 16 bits to encompass the characters of all the world’s living languages. In a properly engineered design, 16 bits per character are more than sufficient for this purpose. The idea of expanding the basis for character encoding from 8 to 16 bits is so sensible, indeed so obvious, that the mind initially recoils from it. The major catch is simply that the 16-bit approach requires перестройка (perestroika), i.e. restructuring our old ways of thinking. Rather than struggling to salvage obsolete. 8-bit encodings via … Continue reading

Bring your own device (BYOD) is a recurrent theme for the most productive members of the workforce. An increasing number of mobile workers are relying on their own devices, and are using these tools to connect to corporate networks to access work applications-often with great frustration. The dawn of BYOD appears to link strongly with mobile workers who’ve revealed that they are a resourceful group and will do anything to ensure ubiquitous connectivity, including work-arounds that could unwittingly threaten the security of a company. However, they also feel a sense of responsibility and care deeply for what they do. They are far more willing to use their personal devices for … Continue reading

The reality of today’s networks is that a large percentage of the devices connected to it are unknown to administrators. These may consist of mobile devices, WAPs, or user owned machines attaching to the network. This trend is growing as the number of tablets, phones, personal notebooks, ebooks, and even game systems attach to the network and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies become the norm. Because administrators do not manage user owned devices, the applications and operating systems range from the latest betas to very old versions with commensurate security vulnerabilities. In today’s networks, administrators are faced with a disparate set of endpoint configurations that do not meet corporate … Continue reading
