The definition of a golden age is a period in a field of endeavor when great tasks were accomplished.1 AI has already impacted speech processing, chatbots, virtual assistants, augmented reality and virtual reality.2 Great things are sure to come in the near future with AI and its associated technologies, along with additional responsibilities that accompany new technologies, like cyber-security and privacy issues.

Apple, Microsoft and Google are spending billions of research dollars to create next generations of digital personal assistants and AI Bots.3 A bot is a piece of software designed to automate a specific task. They are used mainly as web spiders or web crawlers that fetch script, analyze and file information at paces much faster than a human could do. They are becoming more and more natural and simple in their interactions making it hard to distinguish between a human and a bot. This results in an elevated user experience.

Bluetooth has become a common buzz word in many industries. What is Bluetooth and how does it work? Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances from fixed and mobile devices and building personal area networks (PANs).1 One Bluetooth device can connect up to seven devices at a time.

To connect devices using Bluetooth technology each device must be compatible with the same profile. A profile is a specification regarding an aspect of Bluetooth-based communication between devices. There are several profiles available, but the most widely used are the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile, Hands Free Profile and Headset Profile. Advanced Audio Distribution profile (A2DP) defines how multimedia audio can be streamed from one device to another over a Bluetooth connection.2 The Headset profile (HSP) is the most commonly used profile, providing support for Bluetooth headsets to be connected with mobile phones. The Hands-Free profile (HFP) is generally used to allow mobile phones to communicate with vehicle hands-free kits.

In 1965 Gordon Moore, Co-Founder of Intel, made a prediction, he thought at the time would last 10 years. In reality his prediction has continue to ring true for last 50 years and is still going. Moore’s Law predicts the number of transistors that can fit on a silicon chip will double every two years as technology advances.1

At the time Moore made his prediction, color television was just emerging in the United States and you had to actually walk to the TV to turn the channel. Most homes had telephone service with a party line that was shared by multiple service subscribers. Personal computers would not become common for another 15-20 years. Continue Reading

When X-rays were discovered in 1895 by a German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen, no one knew that radiation would find use in a wide range of industries. Today, it is used to varying degrees in medicine, security, transportation, agriculture, oil and gas, and other areas. The application of radiation for industrial purposes will keep on growing in coming years: in medicine, for example, the demand for radiopharmaceuticals for diagnosis is increasing at over 10% annually.¹ Continue Reading
