Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Automotive The State of California has banned the selling of new vehicles with gasoline-powered internal combustion engines (ICE) by 2035. All new passenger cars sold in 15 years in California will be zero emission cars, according to an executive order signed by the state’s governor. Older ICE passenger cars will still be allowed on the roads and can still be sold as used vehicles. The order... » read more

Far Out AI In Remote Locations


There really isn’t anything that you can do on Earth with electronics that you can’t do in space, but it certainly can be a lot harder and take longer to fix is something goes wrong. And as more intelligent electronics are launched into space, the concern over potential failures is growing. AI inferencing has been pushing out further for some time, and it is starting to redefine what con... » read more

Auto Chip Reliability Opens Door To Other Industries


Digital chips in the semiconductor industry evolve from each other. Ideas flow into each other over the years, with occasional big leaps in evolution. The term ‘evolution’ fits because one chip evolves to perfectly optimized for one industry niche. But what happens when one industry’s chip becomes a useful for other industries because it is more cost-effective than what is being used i... » read more
