Georgia Tech researchers have demonstrated an all-optical technique for creating second-order nonlinear effects in materials that aren't normally supported, which could improve optical computers and high-speed data processors.
MIT researchers have invented a machine-learning tool called Ithemal, which predicts how fast computer chips will execute code from various applications.
The Georgia Institute of Technology announced its agreement to join the IBM Q Hub at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to help advance quantum computing research.
Cover Story: As machines incorporate more complex components and software, many-core industrial PCs (IPCs) offer the processing and core isolation capabilities to realize smart factory and Industry 4.0 concepts. How many cores do certain applications need?
Legacy industrial automation systems must eventually be ripped and replaced or upgraded. See four challenges and five benefits of upgrades using modern controllers.
Powerful edge controllers are replacing PCs on the factory floor and going where PCs can’t, providing a variety of “apps” for every task.
Clarkson University received an NSF grant to construct a new high-performance computing cluster to support data and computationally intensive projects.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announces a $3.6 million investment in high-performance computing to help address key challenges in U.S. manufacturing, material, and mobility development.
Long before Industry 4.0 and cloud-connected architectures became possible, innovators championed PC-based technologies for industrial automation.
Edge computing is a mesh network of micro-data centers that process or store critical data locally while also working in concert with a central data center or cloud-storage repository.
