Quantum machine learning could help researchers discover faster and more economical ways of treating COVID-19 than the current methods used for drug discovery.
Edge computing allows engineers to use lower costs to develop newer applications such as shop-floor data analysis and quality prediction. Artificial intelligence (AI) improves the efficiency and accuracy of plant operations.
In automation, many software and hardware technologies have been developed that allow companies the means to remotely monitor and control business processes from anywhere, via any device, at any time
Combining feature normalization and feature attention modules into a single module called attentive normalization (AN) improved deep neural networks' performance.
A computational model that can be used to identify the best allocation plans for distributing COVID-19 test kits to hospitals, clinics, and relevant state agencies has been developed by North Carolina State researchers.
How to move 67,000 garment shuttles, boost efficiency and communicate through EtherCAT
Ed Kompass, a Control Engineering editor from 1954 to 1987, passed away on Aug. 31, 2020, at age 93. He was a regular contributor after retirement and last wrote a column for the 50th anniversary issue (linked below), “We never could have dreamed,” in 2004.
Research: For 2021, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), control system integration, instrumentation, industrial wireless, industrial PCs, industrial Ethernet, and advanced process control are among hot topics; 18 topics are in the top 10; 62 are in the top 20.
Delivering the right human-machine interface (HMI) experience is critical whenever people need to interact with automation.
CU Boulder researchers have used ultra-fast extreme ultraviolet lasers to measure the properties of materials just 5 nm thick, which they hope can help scientists design tinier and more efficient computer circuits, semiconductors and other technologies.
