The evolution of human to whatever Interfaces III

Clearly there is much more than voice based interaction.  So let’s explore other technologies and their implication first by looking at voice (and typing that we have already considered) alternative technologies and then taking the plunge into multimodal interactions (that is our natural way of interacting as human being!). Let’s …

Reality check on 5G

The new Gartner Hype Cycle for 2019 emerging technologies is out and the position of 5G caught my eye. It is right at the top of the curve, meaning it has reached the top of the hype (it is mentioned in 726 million pages according to Google, not as many …

New SSD with 100+ layers enters production

It was September 12th, 1958, when the first integrated chip was demonstrated by Jack Kilby at Texas Instrument (for the record, that first chip was using germanium, not silicon. Robert Noyce few months after that first chip was able to create one based on silicon). It took 12 more years …

Low Latency and Low Power Communications

These two areas are important for Autonomous Systems (if you are interested in technology trends and roadmaps for their application to Autonomous Systems take a look at the White Paper II of SAS). In the White Paper III, in preparation, we are taking a look at present market and its …

6G will follow 5G, that much we know – II

Of course, 5G is much more than the radio part and spectrum efficiency/use. It has a lot to do with network and service architecture. It is through a novel architecture that much lower latency can be achieved. It is the novel architecture that support the session management at the edges, …

Rolling out your personal 5G radio cell

5G is going to provide very high capacity, reaching 1Gbps in favourable situations, but this higher capacity is dependent on the use of millimetre waves (in the tens of GHz), and the reason is not in any magic coding, rather in the huge spectrum that can be associated to very …
