DT evolution in Manufacturing – VII

As mentioned the concept of Cognitive Digital Twin, first defined in the context of smart robots by IBM as a way to represent the knowledge of the robot, an ensemble of robots on the shop floor, has been applied to the representation of the knowledge of a person, becoming a …

The truth and the hype of Quantum Computers

I am no expert in quantum computer, nor in quantum computing. I read a lot about both, I attended quite a number of meetings where quantum was discussed (including the ones at the IEEE Future Direction Committee where there is a Quantum Initiative), yet I remain uncertain about the real …

Cognitive Digital Twins in a Smart Factory

In these last few weeks I have been working on the preparation of an education course that will be published by IEEE on the topic of VR and AR roles in Smart Factories. Smart Factories (has anything that can/should be labelled as “smart”) involve knowledge and being a factory an …

Getting it wrong, and knowing it

Quantum computers have been around for many years now, not in the field but on headlines of newspapers and magazines. They have been and are there because they fascinate our imagination, they are not in the field because they don’t work! Well, this is not a completely correct statement: as …

Designing chip layout with AI

The complexity of designing microchips keeps growing. We have chips today that embeds more than a billion transistors and you need to connect them with one another in very specific ways to get the kind of circuits you need. Let’s get this straight. It is now a long time that …

Going beyond impossible: 2nm chip technology

Today’s most advanced  chip technology is based on a 5nm (5 billionth of a meter) thickness of etching. For comparison the first Intel 4040 was using a 10µm technology (2,000 times “thicker”!). Going beyond that raises many issues that have led to the assumption of “close to impossible”. Going below …
