In June, I attended the Design Automation Conference in Austin, TX and LiveWorx in Boston, MA. I would like to share some key observations from both events.
The Internet of Things is going to be big; very big!
Success requires partnerships.
IoT is about monetizing data.
Engineering simulation is essential.
The Internet of Things is going to be big!
At the just concluded Design Automation Conference in Austin, speaker after speaker stressed this.
Silicon Labs CEO, Tyson Tuttle, noted that there will be 70 billion Internet connected devices by 2025 with accompanying semiconductors to power them. He repeated McKinsey’s forecast the the Internet of Things will drive between $4 -11 trillion in global economic impact by 2025. Continue reading →
Last month I had the pleasure of attending the Designers of Things conference in San Francisco. One of my favorite presentations came from Dr. Mike North — host of Discovery Channel shows Prototype This, Outrageous Acts of Science and In The Making — where he discussed the vast scope of technology’s reach in the modern world. In the video he presented, a sensor-loaded unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) responded to a cell-phone call to pin-point a swimmer in distress and deliver a life jacket to them. What we could only imagine a decade ago, is now fast becoming a reality – intelligent, autonomous, helpful machines.
I just finished reading a great article from Bob Coopersmith on new technologies for aerodynamics. This is such a new and exciting technology that I could not resist sharing it with you.
“We all know the importance of computers in today’s engineering environment. The latest advances in cryogenically cooled semiconductor technology and microscopic germanium subwafer assembly has made desktop 100 MINS (millions of Navier‒Stokes solutions) machines commonplace in engineering use.
