Fujitsu Laboratories Limited today announced that it has developed the world's fastest simulation technology for systems using the ARM computing core, widely used in mobile phones and other electronic devices. This technology is able to faithfully reproduce hardware operations with cycle-for-cycle real-time accuracy.
New distributed processing technology developed to efficiently collect desired data from big data streams
Fujitsu Laboratories Limited today announced the world's first successful development of a distributed processing technology that efficiently collects enormous volumes of real-world data in the cloud through network-linked gateways. Services that collect and employ huge volumes of real-world data in the cloudsuch as the location and health status of people and the status of different operationsare now expanding, and the increase in communications volumes associated with collecting this data poses a huge challenge. To address this problem, Fujitsu Laboratories has developed an algorithm that takes a portion of the data that would otherwise be processed in the ...
Researchers at the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) have developed a computer application that allows georeferenced images that have been uploaded to social networks on the Internet to be recovered, located on maps and organized like a comic to create a visual perspective of a specific story, such as a crisis situation or an emergency.
Cloud-based software learns to translate documents from one language to any of the world's approximately 7,000 other languages, Microsoft says.
Eighty-eight percent of Americans now own a cell phone, forming a massive network that offers scientists a wealth of information and an infinite number of new applications. With the help of these phone users and their devices' cameras, audio recorders, and other features researchers envision endless possibilities for gathering huge amounts of data, from services that collect user data to monitor noise pollution and air quality to applications that build maps from people's cell phone snapshots.
Aircraft-carrier crew use a set of standard hand gestures to guide planes on the carrier deck. But as robot planes are increasingly used for routine air missions, researchers at MIT are working on a system that would enable them to follow the same types of gestures.
(PhysOrg.com) -- While some comics today are still drawn by hand, many modern cartoonists use a variety of digital tools to create comics. But even with the help of these tools, creating comics is a time-consuming task that requires many human hours of work. In a new study, a team of researchers has designed a program that can automatically transform movie scenes into comic strips, without the need for any human intervention.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Microsoft Research is doing research on software that could bring you your own personal data mining center with a touch of Proust for returns. In a recent video, Microsoft scientist Eric Horvitz demonstrated the Lifebrowser, which is prototype software that helps put your digital life in meaningful shape. The software uses machine learning to help a user place life events, which may span months or years, to be expanded or contracted selectively, in better context.
Video games have come a long way since the first simple adventures of Mario and Pac-Man and now enter the realm of art in a major exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington that celebrates gaming's rich creative side and the people behind a medium that's still in full bloom.
Las oportunidades de negocio en Internet se están convirtiendo, en estos últimos tiempos, en una forma de hacer dinero sin tener que salir de casa. Pero la elección del ámbito, el diseño de buenas estrategias, la paciencia y la renovación constante deben estar en la agenda de aquél que desee triunfar en este terreno. Por María Llebrez.
Investigadores de la Universidad de California en Berkeley, Estados Unidos, están analizando al detalle el funcionamiento del cerebro de bebés, niños pequeños y preescolares para aprovechar al máximo su inteligencia cognitiva. De su trabajo se desprende que los niños más pequeños son capaces de resolver problemas que siguen siendo un reto para los ordenadores, como el aprendizaje de idiomas o averiguar relaciones causales, por lo que aspiran a crear equipos más inteligentes asemejándolos a los niños.
