thank you Susan, perhaps, but 20 years will be challenging


this is a fascinating topic, would you be interested in giving a talk on this at emerging technologies symposium in Grenoble in 2014? www.cmosetr.com

@krisi: but 100 years is disappointing. Who knows, maybe the research will take a huge leap and pick up speed; i bet it comes sooner--say 20 years.

Agreed, fascinating...but 100 years is disaapointing, I won't be able to see it :-(

Google neuromorphic systems to learn more. It is a new kind of electrical engineering where systems are designed by emulating how nature processes data - event driven asynchronous parallelism like in the central nervous system.

@goafrit: SPIKING communication - the preferred way nature computes. I think in 100 years, digital will be gone and we will begin to compute like nature.

Fascinating. I'd like to know more about spiking communication. Digital does seem limited. Just from what I can see from Wikipedia, it makes me think those helmets that transmit knowledge directly to the brain in sci-fi films and tv shows might be possible 100 years from now.

These types of camouflaged devices will bring up all kinds of privacy issues I'm sure.

>> Wow. Thanks for the link to the UAV hummingbird. Nature still provides the best designs -- and the best camouflage.

Yes, except that we invented DIGITAL instead of SPIKING communication - the preferred way nature computes. I think in 100 years, digital will be gone and we will begin to compute like nature.

This is really cool. I saw a presentation on UAVs at Autotestcon 2012 that really got me interested in this kind of thing. I wrote a post about an UAV shaped like a hummingbird on UBM Future Cities, with apps being search and rescue and surveillance.

One other interesting omission from the rules is a requirement that the flash drive be readable when it is recovered. This goes to Tom's earlier comment that a magnet is not necessarily the best retrieval strategy, but since there is no requirement that the drive be readable it is probably a good choice. We may be training the next generation of lawyers as well as engineers and spys...

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
