IBM scientists and researchers received 9,130 U.S. patents in 2020, the most of any company, marking 28 consecutive years of IBM patent leadership. IBM led the industry in the number of artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, quantum computing and security-related patents granted.  “The world needs scientific thinking and action more than ever. IBM’s sustained commitment to …

Smartwatches and other battery-powered electronics would be even smarter if they could run AI algorithms. But efforts to build AI-capable chips for mobile devices have so far hit a wall – the so-called “memory wall” that separates data processing and memory chips that must work together to meet the massive and continually growing computational demands …

ABB successfully completes delivery of medium- and low-voltage digital solutions for the expansion of the Shanghai Bailonggang Wastewater Treatment Plant in China guaranteeing continuous and reliable power supply. The expansion of the facility, which also included the introduction of more advanced wastewater treatment processes, required ABB’s high reliability and precision power management solutions to bolster …

Ever noticed that annoying lag that sometimes happens during the internet streaming from, say, your favorite football game? Called latency, this brief delay between a camera capturing an event and the event being shown to viewers is surely annoying during the decisive goal at a World Cup final. But it could be deadly for a …

Since the start of the pandemic, Microsoft Healthcare Bot has been at the leading edge of helping organizations be more agile with patient engagement. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Walgreens, Premera, and Providence are just a few of the many organizations that …

  What’s New: Intel introduced Intel® RealSense™ ID, an on-device solution that combines an active depth sensor with a specialized neural network designed to deliver secure, accurate and user-aware facial authentication. Intel RealSense ID works with smart locks, access control, point-of-sale, ATMs, kiosks and more. “Intel RealSense ID combines purpose-built hardware and software with a …

Combining hybrid polymer materials with microfabrication and 3D printing, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has developed an ultra-compact, lightweight and minimally invasive optoelectronic neural implant that could be used for long-term studies of brain activity. The new implantable devices are built upon a new platform LLNL researchers are calling POEMS (Polymeric Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems) and represent …

Founded in 2019, the Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipator’s mission is to identify tomorrow’s scientific innovations and to anticipate their impact on our societies by integrating them into the international Geneva ecosystem.   The Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipator (GESDA) has revealed a list of 68 global leading scientists that it has collaborated with to …

For even the most routine of medical checkups, a blood test is often the first order of business. But, for all its diagnostic power, this common test provides only a snapshot of the blood during a single moment in time.   “A blood test is great, but it can’t tell you, for example, whether insulin …

Imagine typing on a computer without a keyboard, playing a video game without a controller or driving a car without a wheel. That’s one of the goals of a new device developed by engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, that can recognize hand gestures based on electrical signals detected in the forearm. The system, …
