@pixies: scary(!) thoughts on extrapolation of networking to higher orders. I have read some what on evolutionary and self-organizing networks but I still consider them dependent on human intervention at least at several phases, for now.
Human beings are already being rendered useless on several fronts with the advances in technology. We are supposed to advance in intellectual thought and their application to work life so we can justify the need for human interaction with processes & tools (in short, work!) but that line of argument seems to be struggling for validation, in some sectors. More automation is rendering human interaction with machines & tools unwanted. I honestly don't know where this stops!
Junko, I will keep you posted. Had a nice chat with the CTO of Mozilla and also have some presentation materials on B2G.
I understand how Mozilla monetizes FireFox but I am still in the dark about B2G's monetization mnodel.
Just wanted to draw attention to CogniVue's - also founding member of EVA - latest Smart Back-Up Camera Application dewarping, object detection & distance estimation running on a single CV2201 processor - 9x9mm2 incl sys mem dissipating ~250mW. How's that for 'powerful, low-cost, energy efficient processors as key enablers of this technology'. Check it out on http://www.youtube.com/user/cognivue/videos
I generally like the list, at least for technology sake... but I think many are solutions looking for problems. One thing is sure, we are networking the heck out of anything and everything! And losing privacy fast!
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
