4 Benefits Satellite Operators and their Customers gain from an Edge-Centric Approach to the Industrial IoT
In our concept paper "Satellite at the Edge", we extolled the virtues of an edge-centric approach to Satellite IoT. Having described the “what”, we now set out the “why” by outlining four major benefits and asking whether they primarily advantage satellite network operators or their customers.
AI – The Blinking Red Warning Light
In the second post of his series, Simon Shakespeare responds to a concern that AI might soon hit some long-anticipated roadblocks and finds reassurance in the many other AI tools still left in the engineer’s toolbox.
Why do I dream of electric sheep? Developing the next generation of consumer products with new technology
Designing and manufacturing next-generation consumer products requires a combination of market and technology insight - especially when new technology can now turn your product into a service offering.
Remote monitoring and telemedicine: a match made in digital health heaven?
It’s tempting to think that IoT infrastructure and AI make remote disease monitoring straightforward. But even when this is technically feasible, healthcare system innovation is necessary to make the most of opportunities created by digital health.
Layer-by-layer NDT for additive manufacturing: a new paradigm in quality assurance
Additive manufacturing (“AM” popularly called “3D printing”) is often seen as a way to produce unique parts, but a much less discussed, though generally more beneficial, feature of the technology is the “complexity-for-free” aspect.
Can we imagine a future of personalised medicine based on the analysis of lipids and carbohydrates?
DNA to RNA to protein – from this simple but powerful concept was born first biotechnology and then personalised medicine. But are we missing something? Can we imagine a future of personalised medicine based on the analysis of lipids and carbohydrates?
A “head-in-the-clouds” strategy for IoT is partial, at best.
What is the optimum balance between edge- and cloud-based intelligence in IoT systems?
The missing link: an antenna-centric adoption scenario for broadband from space
New space companies are planning to launch low earth orbit (LEO) satellites to provide broadband internet everywhere on earth. But with antennas for satellite receivers at consumer price points still out of reach, how will users be connected?
Design for adherence: a model for predicting and improving medication adherence
Medication adherence is often studied after a drug or delivery device has been developed, but what if we were able to predict levels of adherence for a particular drug delivery device during development?
Fashion or Future? AI as part of the business transformation toolkit
Artificial Intelligence could be the solution to all our woes or the most over-hyped technology of our age. Even defining AI can seem problematical, given that we have trouble defining what regular intelligence is. Does that mean AI is over-rated, or just that our expectations of what it can do are over-inflated? How does AI really fit into the toolkit for business transformation?
