Yes, it’s actually here. The Kitty Hawk Flyer doesn’t have a price tag – not yet anyway, but for a down payment of $100, it lets users sign-up for a discount of $2000 and gain access to special offers from the company. The idea of a flying car isn’t new, and the concept is already […]Read more "Forget the Autonomous Vehicle – a Flying Car is already here"
Augmented reality is the next big thing. At this year’s Facebook F8 conference, Mark Zuckerberg outlined the next steps for Facebook’s 10-year master plan, and the beginning of this plan focused on enabling an augmented reality environment. Some of the key things that came out of the plan include: 1) The Camera Effects platform Remember […]Read more "FPGA enables Augmented Reality – the next Tech Trend"
Do a quick google search for ‘babies.’ Do another quick google search for ‘hands.’ Chances are, most of the pictures you see a predominately Caucasian. And that’s what the problem is. When the algorithms behind a web search pulls pictures, they are retrieving images that are used the most often. It has reached the point […]Read more "Racism in the Algorithms behind Artificial Intelligence"
It’s only a matter of time before artificial intelligence takes the tech world by a storm. Right now, it’s still in the nascent stages as tech firms try to train robots into developing a more flexible outlook. Today’s robots have certain algorithms instilled into them. These algorithms enable deep neural networks, bestowing machines with certain […]Read more "FPGA enables the Development of a Terminator-like Robot"
Overbooking is the newest tech trend of the week. Just a few days ago, the forcible and violent ejection of a paying passenger from a United Airlines flight made headlines. Actually, the issue is still making headlines. Social media (specifically Reddit and Twitter) are having a field day. It leads a lot of consumers to […]Read more "FPGA powers the algorithms behind Airline Overbooking"
Why do developers prefer an FPGA over a traditional CPU or GPU? First, FPGA are reprogrammable, meaning the chip can be reused over and over again and to suit different applications. Plus something like an ASIC takes a long time to develop, whereas an FPGA has a faster time to market. Today, it’s become a […]Read more "It’s now easier than ever to use an FPGA for your next board"
