Techion’s Microscope in The Cloud for Parasites

Parasites are unique in that they infect a living organism in order to get a free ride through life at the expense of the host. Like today’s modern-day millennial, parasites are careful not to disrupt the equilibrium too much so that they’re not kicked out and forced to fend for themselves. Since parasites consume nutrients […]

New Artificial Intelligence Chips Lean Toward the Edge

What a difference a year makes. Few companies had enjoyed the sort of bull run AI chipmaker Nvidia (NVDA ) had been on, returning more than +1200% between June 2015 and June 2018, eventually hitting a market cap of about $175 billion by September 2018. Then everything went south – literally – as the market […]

IBM and Red Hat – WTF is a Hybrid Cloud?

In our last article on IBM’s activities in the area of blockchain, we talked about how difficult it is to find technology stocks for a dividend growth investing strategy. Why is that the case? It’s because technology stocks are largely growth stocks, and growth stocks can best serve investors by plowing all of their cash profits right back […]

CloudMinds has Lofty Goals for Cloud Robotics

Any sci-fi geek worth his tricorder knows that humanity’s toughest opponents are always the robot armies ruled by a collective brain or supercomputer. The hive-minded Borg from “Star Trek” and the ubiquitous Skynet in “Terminator” are but just two examples of such relentless bad guys with serious firepower. It turns out there’s a name for […]

Orbital Insight Sees the Big Picture with AI

If you still think Google Earth is the coolest application of satellite imagery around, then we’re about to blow your mind. It’s not just possible to see Dick Cheney’s house from outer space. Today, we can predict potential crop shortages and assess retail business during the holidays. We can learn which cities are the most […]

Cognitive Scale – Cognitive Computing in The Cloud

Everything is about cloud computing these days. In fact, there is such an emphasis on stuffing all your applications into the cloud that we’ve managed to create a situation where now we’re having performance issues. So then the tech world came up with another concept called fog computing which means we take everything out of the cloud […]

5 Fog Computing Examples from Foghorn

We recently wrote an article about “fog computing” and how it is a simple concept that involves moving your computers closer to the sensors they are talking to. That’s it really. Whereas before we had sensors that talked to “the cloud“, it turns out that we don’t have sufficient bandwidth and/or connectivity that enable the responsive […]

Fog Computing vs. Cloud Computing vs. Edge Computing

The world of information technology is one where grandiose sounding names often mask just how simple the underlying technologies actually are. In a recent article, we demystified the term “cloud computing” by explaining it as a business model that leases applications on demand which are accessible via the internet. In the olden days this was called centralized […]
